I’ve read every single book Victoria Kincaid has released and I am now convinced her books have two main characteristics: they are real page turners and they contain exactly what I want to read in a P&P story.
It is remarkable how this writer has the ability to create scenarios that I have long wanted to read. She did it in The Secrets of Darcy and Elizabeth, Pride & Proposals, Mr. Darcy to the Rescue, and once more with Darcy’s Honor that I read in one single day.
The plot developed in Darcy’s Honor is something I always wanted to read: another gentleman wishes to marry Elizabeth and his interest in her serves as a trigger for Mr. Darcy’s actions, as he realizes he cannot live with her belonging to another man.
Lord Henry is liked by the entire society of Meryton, but his intentions towards Elizabeth are not as honorable as most would believe, and he compromises her in the hopes of obtaining what he wants. But we all know Elizabeth Bennet, and this headstrong, obstinate girl will not marry without affection preferring to have her name tarnished and to fight against the world than to spend the rest of her life with someone she will never respect or even like.
Hearing about what happened Mr. Darcy realizes that he can save Elizabeth from such faith, but does she want to be saved? I believe you all know the answer to that 🙂
This variation is full of romantic scenes between Darcy and Elizabeth that were true balms to my soul. These moments enhanced his feelings for her and gave her time to start loving him, which contributed to the much loved angst in this book because despite their feelings, Elizabeth is still convinced her situation can only harm Mr. and Miss Darcy’s name.
Darcy is a loving, patient character who keeps saving Elizabeth from several situations, and even if it is hard to choose only one, the way he takes care of her when she is ill and the intensity of his feelings and his suffering is heartbreaking and memorable, it is one of my favourite passages in this book and one I will not forget so soon. Long live the angst!
But a good book must always have an element of surprise right? In Darcy’s Honor, the element of surprise was Lady Catherine! I never expected to have her play the role she played in this book while remaining her true self. I absolutely loved her characters influence in this book and I must praise Mrs. Kincaid for crafting this change without altering the characters personality traits.
Towards the end, I started to think Elizabeth was too stubborn and their private encounters a bit too frequent, and where it not for that I would have given 5 stars to this book. I am very picky with these things and they still did not prevented me from loving the book, so I am sure they will not bother in the least most of my readers, and I can honestly say that I believe everyone will love this book. I highly recommend it to all readers who want a romantic, exciting, page turner book 🙂
