Darcy’s Temptation by Regina Jeffers
Following on directly from the story in Darcy’s Passion all is pretty much bliss for the Darcy’s, until……..
Darcy leaves his Elizabeth at Pemberly to go and check out a threat to his beloved sister.
He is set upon and left for dead, a crazy but engaging plot then ensues when he is rescued by a mad woman. I don’t want to give anything away but she makes Mrs Haversham seem sane by comparison.
Elizabeth is pregnant and holding the fort while Darcy has vanished.
Lady Catherine gets to be as evil and nasty as only she could be threatening and brow beating Elizabeth in Darcy’s absence. She, even purposely hides the knowledge of Darcy’s whereabouts when she finds out from Mr Collins where he is.
Unfortunately he is not the same man on his return.
This story has many highs and lows and at one point I was actually in tears (I am rather soppy). There are plenty of good sub plots with Kitty and Georgina both building their new relationships with the men in their lives.
The scene in this book where Wickham tried to make a move on Pemberly while Darcy is absent s priceless and gave me great pleasure.
So for Regina Jeffers books I say yes, yes and please give us more.
I don’t want to give away any of the story line so you need to get your selves the books and read them.
