Engaging Emotional, Gothic-style Romance ~ Sophia Rose A great Ride. A really great Read. Sharlotte Review@Amazon The perfect blend of romance and intrigue, with a lovely smattering of fascinating characters to augment the ultimate, infuriating principals we love. Very few authors can write an Austen variation that captures the reader at the prologue and doesn't let go till the end. Ms. D'Orazio is a master of the craft. Stock up on chocolate, select your vintage of choice, grab some tissues, lock the door and Enjoy!
About the Author
Amy D'Orazio is a former breast cancer researcher and current stay at home mom who is addicted to Austen and Starbucks in about equal measures. While she adores Mr. Darcy, she is married to Mr. Bingley and their Pemberley is in Pittsburgh PA. She has two daughters who are devoted to sports which require long practices and began writing her own stories as a way to pass the time she spent sitting in the lobbies of various gyms and studios. She is a firm believer that all stories should have long looks, stolen kisses and happily ever afters. Like her favorite heroine, she dearly loves a laugh and considers herself an excellent walker.

Only, things were not what they seemed. Our story dealt with a conspiracy, far reaching political and governmental intrigue, the death of a peer, threats to the monarchy and survivors hidden in plain sight. This was a story worth reading. The angst was worthy of 5-swoon points. The language was gripping as our story spanned several years as government men searched for the culprits and the gunman that killed Elizabeth Bennet’s husband.
This was the most mixed up, intriguing, and confusing story. I was trying desperately to figure out who, what, when, how and why. Wickham was the same usual rat-bastard only he really stepped into it this time. The author kept the secret hidden for nearly the whole book. I was going crazy. The clues were scattered throughout the story and I didn’t catch them until later. I wanted to yell... this cannot be true… this is not happening.
I liked the fact our author kept us fairly close to Elizabeth and Darcy. We had a lot of page time with ODC [our dear couple] and their POV; thus, allowing us to know what they were thinking. This was agonizing at times and the angst was palpable. Man, it was awesomely cruel drug through the mud, thinking all was lost. I kept wondering, how on earth is this author going to clear this up. Then she did. I was shocked, stunned and horrified. Man, what a twist. It was brutal and awesome at the same time. What can I say? Not a lot, as it will spoil the reveal.
Question: what happened to the treasure? They thought perhaps it had been found previously, but was it?
Rating: mature, sensual, suggestive, not graphic or explicit, but somewhat descriptive.
First thing: Interesting reversal of roles with Elizabeth being of a higher social standing and having more of a fortune than Darcy right out of the gate. That being said I really disliked Mrs. Bennet in this story because of Lizzy's new circumstances. I preferred her poor without these haughty airs. She grated on my nerves and I'm glad after a certain point we didn't read much of her anymore.
One thing I liked was how famous lines from the original were spoken by different characters, most notably many of Mr. Bennet' lines spoken by his wife, such as when Bingley comes to Netherfield. I really felt bad for Bingley in this story. I'm so used to him being treated with deference that this story caught me off guard haha.
I could sympathize with both Darcy and Lizzy in this story considering the circumstances they were going through (especially Lizzy) but I found it hard to LIKE them all that much in the beginning. They were both really just downright mean to each other. It was tough to read. I'm also not a fan of either character having had a previous relationship, ESPECIALLY if a child comes from that relationship. It's a personal nitpick of mine, but it made this story harder to read. Once they married, however, my love for them took off. They really were put through the wringer in this story which I'll get to.
One of my favorite scenes was when Lizzy was inebriated and "took advantage" of Darcy. Their subsequent conversation of her having to offer HIM marriage after taking such liberties was amusing. Also, Darcy with Henry was the sweetest thing. I loved their relationship.
Slight spoiler alert below...
I knew deep down just what the grand mystery was when Lizzy had to go back to being Lady Courtenay but it was depressing to go through the motions of seeing Lizzy and Darcy separated. Also, I was frustrated with how stupid Lizzy was not to figure it out! I'm glad she finally did but sheesh! I probably will read this again because the scenes between Darcy and Lizzy were just too good. Lots of "naughty times" (the sketches were hilarious) and though there was nothing explicit in this story, definitely a book for more mature readers.
I say if you have the heart for the amount of angst in this book, you won't be disappointed. True love does prevail but man there's a lot of sadness in this story!
