A gentleman in love cannot survive without his best friend.. Fitzwilliam Darcy and Colonel Fitzwilliam couldn't be more different, and that goes for the way each one woos and pursues the woman of his dreams. Darcy is quiet and reserved, careful and dutiful, and his qualms and hesitations are going to torpedo his courtship of Elizabeth. His affable and vivacious cousin, Colonel Fitzwilliam is a military hero whose devil-may-care personality hides the torments within, until he finds himself in a passionate, whirlwind affair with a beautiful widow who won't hear of his honorable intentions. Cousins, best friends, and sparring partners, Darcy and Fitzwilliam have always been there for each other. So it's no surprise when the only one who can help Darcy fix his botched marriage proposals is Fitzwilliam, and the only one who can pull Fitzwilliam out of an increasingly dangerous entanglement is Darcy..
"A very interesting take on a great story. I believe the author did an excellent job of taking Jane Austen's characters and telling a very different story. Austen fans and fans of Austen inspired fiction will not want to miss this one." - Debbie's Book Bag

I pushed myself to get to page 49. I then removed the volume from my eReader. To be sure, there are actually many P&P retellings out there that are not so great, but I've never stopped reading one so early on and not cared one hoot about how it ends. While they may have been named "Darcy" and "Elizabeth", I did not recognize these characters in terms of how they spoke, acted or thought. The crude language was enough to put me off, but what really took the cake was --- MINOR SPOILER ALERT --- the revelation of an affair that Darcy had with a most unlikely person. It was in the aftermath of Elizabeth discovering this that I bowed out. Glad this was a library loaner and that all it costed me was a half hour of my life.

I thought this one started off slowly, but I was in the staff lunchroom toward the end--and I was laughing out loud. It has a wonderfully fresh take on Lady Catherine.
