Mr. Darcy’s Passion

I downloaded Mr. Darcy’s Passion from Amazon on a wimp because it was very short and free, but I should have paid more attention to the blurb before getting it, because if I had, I would have known this is not the book for me.

This short novella is only 22 pages so it can be read in less than an hour but it is nothing more than a couple of erotic scenes between Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth. I have nothing against erotic literature even if I don’t usually read it, but on what intends to be a Pride and Prejudice variation I would expect it to occur at least after Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth are married.

In this story Mr. Darcy finds Elizabeth on Pemberley grounds when she is visiting with the Gardiners and on their first encounter in the woods he begs her to show her how much he loves her. Apparently his notion of love is merely sexual and because Elizabeth ends up accepting his advances, they have their first intimate encounter. They don’t actually have sex, but Mr. Darcy finds a way to pleasure Elizabeth.

Because of this encounter she starts re-thinking about her feelings for him and on a second encounter allows him to once more get intimate with her taking to another level, and giving him pleasure herself.

After these two encounters Elizabeth considers herself in love with him and accepts to become his wife.

I know I’ve spoiled the story, but the truth is, there isn’t much story into this. With only 22 pages and 2 two erotic scenes, that is all you can expect from this novel. The worst part for me was not the erotic scenes, because the fault for not seeing the blurb was mine and I could not give the book a bad rating because I didn’t notice that I would not like the blurb, but I cannot accept this is a P&P variation. The characters have the same name and it is set in Pemberley, but both Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth are completely out of character. They have nothing to do with the characters we know except the name.

Summing up, if you want an erotic short story to read you may like this one because the content is not too descriptive nor is tasteless, however, if you are looking for a Pride and Prejudice story, this is not for you.

    Thanks for taking the time to warn people Rita. I always check the number of pages now and I have learnt not to download just because it’s free!
    I don’t object to passion between ODC as long as it’s part of a loving relationship between recognisable characters. There are too many of these which just use the names Darcy and Elizabeth to try and sell their books.

    Not for me. Thanks for taking one for the team. Man… that is just wrong. There are so many things wrong with this picture… dang.

    Oops! I’ve done that before.

    If the erotic scenes had just been that, I might have shrugged and went with it. But, I hate it when the love word is tossed around after a good bout of sex (even if this scene does take place late in the timeline of the novel and I’m guessing the reader is meant to take that into consideration).
