The letter he presents to Miss Elizabeth Bennet after his ghastly proposal is not the only epistle he has written her. In this tale of longing, misadventure, and love—readapted from Jane Austen’s dearly loved Pride & Prejudice—our hero finds a powerful way of coping with his attraction to Miss Bennet. He writes her unsent letters.
The misguided suitor has declared himself, and Elizabeth Bennet has refused him, most painfully. Without intending for these letters to become known to another soul, Mr. Darcy relies on his secret for coping once again. However, these letters, should they fall into the wrong hands, could create untold scandal, embarrassment, and possibly heartbreak. But what happens if they fall into the right hands?
My Review: Oh man this book took me a few days to read but only because I had to go to that evil institution called work. The Darcy in this book is very believable and I could see the original doing this as well. All of the characters in my opinion were true to form. I enjoyed the fact that even though Lydia still eloped in this book it wasn't to Wickham at all. Actually after Wickham leaves Meryton he is not even really mentioned at except the end where we learn his fate. This book was very enjoyable to me and I'll probably read it again in the future.

Okay, in all honesty – KaraLynne Mackrory is no newbie to the writing world. She made her debut as an author at the tender age of 13 when she wrote her first set of bad poetry. Angsty and emotional – teenage-drama filled – they were unbelievable disasters. Such contributions to the literary world were deemed so terrible that today they are kept behind lock and key to protect others from their awfulness. As a young adult she steered clear of soap opera drama inspired works and achieved a degree in Social Work. It was not until her late twenties that she returned to her roots in writing. Since then she has published three Austen inspired novels so full of romantic sensibilities as to give you a toothache and a grin and hopefully a few contented sighs. She is thrilled to report that Falling For Mr. Darcy, Bluebells in the Mourning and Haunting Mr. Darcy: A Spirited Courtship are a mite better than the bad poetry.
