Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Married life is bliss. At least that is what Colonel Richard Fitzwilliam�s cousin Fitzwilliam Darcy would have him believe. But Richard has no intention of stepping into the parson�s mousetrap until he encounters American widow Amanda Penrod at one of London�s innumerous balls. Instantly smitten, Richard suddenly finds himself behaving as foolishly as Mr. Darcy did when he was courting Elizabeth Bennet. While Richard is busy struggling to navigate the unfamiliar seas of romance with Amanda, an unexpected storm in the person of Caroline Bingley threatens to stir up the formerly placid matrimonial waters of the Darcy household. While staying true to the spirit of the immortal Jane, Wasylowski does bring some subtle changes of her own into Pride and Prejudice (including giving one of literature�s great harridans, Lady Catherine de Bourgh, a kinder, gentler personality), and her deftly written tale of family, friendship, and marriage should please most Regency readers. --John Charles

Review

"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

"Her deftly written tale of family, friendship, and marriage should please most Regency readers." - Booklist

"I love so many aspects of this book that it's almost difficult to put it into words." - Books Like Breathing

"Laugh until your sides ache and then laugh some more with Karen V. Wasylowski's delicious Darcy and Fitzwilliam: A Tale of a Gentleman and an Officer. This absorbing, fast-moving romp of a book catalogues the often hilarious ups and downs in the enduring affectionate friendship of those brothers-in-spirit, cousins Fitzwilliam Darcy and Colonel Richard Fitzwilliam." - Linda Banche Romance Author

"Overall, I found Karen Wasylowski's much anticipated debut novel to be a praiseworthy addition to the world of Austenesque novels! I found much amusement and pleasure in this novel! I sincerely hope we will see more from Ms. Wasylowski in the future!" - Austenesque Reviews

"Her work is page turning, humorous, maddening and touching. This is a fine edition to the ever-growing library of Austenesque novels. It's definitely a "bromance" worth an Austen fan's consideration." - The Calico Critic

"Wasylowski does a great job balancing the lightness of Darcy and Fitzwilliam's teasing with heavier moments, including Fitzwilliam's memories of war and women's lack of rights during the Regency era, highlighted by a widow's child custody battle. But the humor really stands out and makes Darcy and Fitzwilliam an enjoyable read." - Diary of an Eccentric

"This book was a delight to read. I found the character development of Colonel Fitzwilliam particularly fascinating. Men who have seen war, especially at the grand level Wasylowski has laid out her Fitzwilliam, are hardly ever unaffected. Her portrayal of his issues and struggles are heartfelt and poignant." - Jane Austen Examiner

"There were many parts of this story to like and love and it shouldn't disappoint. Many stories that try to provide an ending for much-loved characters often do not supply the satisfaction that the reader wants, but I think this one will. We are able to see the depth of love between Lizzy and Darcy (and their bedroom antics supply many a smile for the household) and these characters seem to be kept true to form throughout the book" - Australian Romance Readers
