Mistress: A Pride & Prejudice Variation by Sohie Turner
One night, to decide his entire life's happiness.
Chastened by Charles Bingley following Mr. Bennet’s untimely death, Fitzwilliam Darcy determines he will offer marriage to Elizabeth Bennet, but she marries another.
Years later, a widowed Elizabeth is mistress of Longbourn, and has vowed she will never marry again. A house party at Netherfield brings them back together, but Darcy will have to win more than her heart if he is to have any chance at making her mistress of Pemberley.
Readers of Sophie Turner's more chaste Constant Love series should be aware that this novel contains decidedly adult content at certain parts of the story.
I always have a hard time when I read JAFF that has Darcy or Elizabeth with another. I know it is ridiculous but that’s just the way it works in my heart. To pair Lizzie up with Mr. Collins had me crying and the story had just begun!
Poor Elizabeth, in this awful situation married to the most despicable man. He was the most terrible and abusive husband and how she managed to stay a shell of what she once was made me feel so awful for her.
I knew there was going to be something CRAZY that would have to happen to bring Darcy and Elizabeth together to give us Janeites our happily ever after and I was so happy when it happened!! I am not an awful person, but I hated Mr. Collins!!
Darcy was so swoony and beautiful in his pursuit of Elizabeth, he never stopped loving her and it was so evident in the way he courted and treated her. I loved it so much I didn’t want it to end!!
Mistress has all the push and pull of the original story, yet tells a tale all its own. Very unique and very romantic, this second chance romance at love and at life will leave you breathless in the end.
TWO eBook copies of Mistress!! Just comment on this post for a chance to win!
Sophie Turner worked as an online editor before delving even more fully into the tech world. Writing, researching the Regency era, and occasionally dreaming about living in Britain are her escapes from her day job.
She was afraid of long series until she ventured upon Patrick O’Brian’s 20-book Aubrey-Maturin masterpiece, something she might have repeated five times through.
Alas, her Constant Love series is only planned to be seven books right now, and consists of A Constant Love, A Change of Legacies, and the in-progress A Season Lost.
She blogs about her writing endeavours at sophie-turner-acl.blogspot.com, where readers can find direction for the various social drawing-rooms across the Internet where she may be called upon.
