Debut author Jan Hahn's novel, "An Arranged Marriage" begs the question, "Can a marriage of convenience ever lead to true love?" In Hahn's impressive alteration of Jane Austen's "Pride & Prejudice," days after Miss Elizabeth Bennet stringently refuses the proposal of Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy at Hunsford, her beloved father dies, leaving the family with meager resources and an estate entailed to their toad-eating cousin, Mr. Collins. Half a year later, as the ladies of Longbourn are packing to make way for the new owner, Mr. Darcy offers for Elizabeth's hand once again. Despite her passionate dislike and distrust of the man, Elizabeth, with a grievous and bitter heart, accepts, saving her family from ruination and despair. Refreshingly narrated from Elizabeth's keen and often caustic perspective, we are privy to her inner most thoughts as she struggles to conquer her turmoil of the loss of her father; the disgrace of her youngest sister; the humiliation of her eldest sister; the anxiety of nearly losing her home; and of course, the distress from this arranged marriage. And yet most disconcerting to her psyche is her blossoming passion for the last man in the world she could ever be prevailed upon to marry.

Hahn's mastery of Regency eloquence, as well as the seamless injections of Austen's most famous prose is pitch perfect. Most appreciated is her deft understanding of romance-- sans all the tiresome throbbing and moaning one reads so often in many Darcy and Elizabeth adaptations. "His voice was as low and resonant as the diva's was high and clear, and I thought how lovely it would be to hear such words on his lips if we truly cared for each other. `Caro mi ben, credimi almen, senza di te languisce it cor.' `My dear beloved, believe me at least, without you my heart languishes.

I first read this book in .pdf version when I was living in Senegal, West Africa. Loved it then, and still love it now! I was skeptical when I first started getting into these 'what if' stories. But I am a convert, through and through. Not to say that all of them are masterpieces, but Jan Hahn definitely deserves 5 stars for this masterpiece. It was clever, entertaing and did not delve too far from the expected. Ok, there were a few lingering looks and sexual buildups that would never be seen in an Austen novel of the time, but it was a great story and wrapped up very nicely. Keep them coming, please.

Although this book is told from Elizabeth's perspective, one gains much insight into the character, and even childhood, of Mr. Darcy. The book transported me back in time to an era of romance and beauty, to Georgian England, London and Pemberley. I never wanted to stop reading. It was intriguing...a fascinating book and one I look forward to reading again and again.

I have to admit, Mr. Darcy is my favorite character in the original book, as well as this one, but Elizabeth does run a close second. I highly recommend this book to anyone who has a love of Jane Austen and the books written of that era. You will fall in love with the characters all over.

It is difficult to express my feelings about this book in a few paragraphs. It contains all the elements that I enjoy in a "Pride and Prejudice" adaptation. The characters are true to their canonical counterparts, the story makes me feel good AND it is filled with sexual tension betwen the main characters. Nonetheless, this is a clean romance book. You won't find any sex scenes or creepy descriptions in Jan Hahn's writing.

Darcy, ever the taciturn man, does not inform his wife about most of his doings, thus leaving her vulnerable to misconceptions. Otherwise, he is the perfect husband - patient and gentlemanly to a fault, and so much in love with his wife that this female reader would die to be in Elizabeth's shoes! Unlike in many other stories, this Elizabeth is not a whiny bitch but a brave and courageous person. Jan Hahn perfectly portrayed the uncertainty of first love. We have a passionate but innocent young woman who falls in love with her own husband - a man she had sworn to hate. I symphatized with our dear girl. For her, everything looks as if her spouse has fathered a child with a servant. But she does not tell him of her assumptions until the end of the book.

Most of the conflict is due to a lack of communication between our couple. However, I was glad for the abscence of melodramatics. Instead, the author gifted us with some tender, some passionate, and even some very humourous scenes. This is a feel-good-story, containing moderate angst and a very satisfying happily ever after. I have read countless "Pride and Prejudice" adaptations over the last years and this one ranks among my top five. Now I cannot wait to add "The Journey" to my collection. When read it on the internet, I was completely blown away by the magic of Jan Hahn's writing. There are very few authors who possess her tastefulness and sensitivity.

One of the best stories I have read in a long time. An Arranged Marriage starts where after Elizabeth refuses Mr Darcy's offer of Marriage her beloved father is killed in a shooting accident. Some months later Mr and Mrs Gardiner arrive with Mr Darcy to persuade her to take up Mr Darcy's offer of An Arranged Marriage.

At first she is reluctant to do so but after talking with him she agrees for her family. This is where the love story starts. Once in London they learn about one another until someone sends a note that they will kidnap Georgiana and so all the Darcy staff end up staying in London.

By this time Elizabeth has fallen in love with Mr Darcy and is upset he is sending her away without telling her why. This is such a beautiful story and well written I could go on and on about it. This book is one I would highly recommend to every one.
