Mr. Darcy Takes a Wife : Pride and Prejudice Continues
What readers are saying "Whoa, Darcy!" "Some parts are hilarious and some a walk on the wild side for Austen characters. Curl up and enjoy!" "Tells the tale I always wanted to hear...how the Darcys lived happily ever after..." "The only fault I found with this book was that it ended." Every woman wants to be Elizabeth Bennet Darcy-beautiful, gracious, universally admired, strong, daring and outspoken-a thoroughly modern woman in crinolines. And every woman will fall madly in love with Mr. Darcy-tall, dark and handsome, a nobleman and a heartthrob whose virility is matched only by his utter devotion to his wife. Their passion is consuming and idyllic-essentially, they can't keep their hands off each other-through a sweeping tale of adventure and misadventure, human folly and numerous mysteries of parentage. Hold on to your bonnets! This sexy, epic, hilarious, poignant and romantic sequel to Pride and Prejudice goes far beyond Jane Austen.

About Linda Berdoll
Linda Berdoll is a self-described "Texas farm wife" whose interest in all things Austen was piqued by the BBC/A&E mini-series of Pride and Prejudice. Four years and much research later, her effort, Mr. Darcy Takes a Wife (originally titled The Bar Sinister) appeared, to the acclaim of readers and the horror of Jane Austen purists. This is Berdoll's first novel, but she has since published a humorous book of euphemisms and is now at work on a sequel to the sequel. She and her husband live on a pecan farm in Del Valle, Texas. Although she admits that she eloped in a manner similar to Lydia Bennet's, to her great fortune it was with Darcy, not Wickham.
"This is such a treat for Pride and Prejudice fans. There is the perfect balance between the continuation of a wonderful story with visits from lovable characters (or characters that you love to hate). The story ends on a cliffhanger, but as I have mentioned, there is a sequel to this sequel. I highly recommend Mr. Darcy Take a Wife. It's not too often that we get to find out what happens next, and Berdoll does an admirable job of continuing a wonderful story." - Epinions.com
