From the back of the book:
Their attraction is so hot, it should be against the law…
Judge Fitzwilliam Darcy is terribly bored – ready to hang up his black robe and return to the life of a country gentleman – until he meets Elizabeth Bennet, a fresh-faced attorney with a hectic schedule and no time for sexy but haughty judge. Sparks fly as the two match wits and battle their overwhelming attraction.
When Darcy and Elizabeth are unexpectedly thrown together at an international conference, things heat up, and Lizzy starts to discover the man beneath those swirling black judicial robes. But when ethical considerations intrude, neither wants to give up their career, and it seems nothing will ever be able to bring Darcy and Lizzy back together…
This book started off rocky for me, but I soon came to be completely enchanted. I had to distance myself a little from the original Darcy and Lizzy and once I did that I loved the book. The story loosely follows the plot of Pride and Prejudice, but the main similarities are the names and characteristics of the main characters. Darcy is as haughty and distant as ever in the beginning, but being with the spirited Lizzy changes him for the better. I loved all of the similarities to the story (once I overcame my problem with Darcy dropping the f-bomb) and was surprised by some of the places that deviated from the original plot line.
I don’t have an extra copy of this book, but will gladly pass on my copy to some lucky commenter. So, if you don’t have a problem with an used book leave a comment and I’ll announce the winner tomorrow!
ETA: One of the comments said that they were worried, since I was giving away my copy, that it wasn’t so great. It is great, I bought a new copy for myself (I like to support the authors that I get advanced copies from), but it hasn’t made it here yet and since I pre-ordered it with some other books it won’t be here till mid-November. I’m giving away my review copy, since I can mail it this week and the winner wouldn’t have to wait.
the book girl gives THE TRIALS OF THE HONORABLE F. DARCY by Sara Angelini a 4/5!
