Mr. Darcy - we can't get enough of you

I was wandering around Barnes & Noble the other day and noticed an interesting trend... the number of books about Mr. Darcy. Yes, that Mr. Darcy from Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice. Apparently people can't get enough of him.

I will admit (don't kill me) that I'm not a big Pride and Prejudice fan, well that's not entirely true. I love all the films, but the book, I'm like eh *shoulder shrug*... I just didn't get into it and fall in love with the novel like most people. Granted, I appreciate the quick wit Ms. Austen expounds in the novel, hey I'm a sucker for all things British especially the Victorian and Regency eras but the novel just didn't connect with me. The films, well, that's another story, visually (on screen) the novel is more appealing to me than the words (strange, huh?). I can't get enough of them... I say remake them as many times as you want, I'll keep coming back for more.

I grabbed a couple of the Mr. Darcy book covers and made the graphic above

But if you are a Mr. Darcy fan, well here, take your pick:

I haven't read any of these novels, but if you have please let me know what you think. Also if any are of the sensual variety (meaning more than hand holding and kissing) please let me know... err, I'm doing a research project, yeah, that's right, a research project. *smiles*

  1. Hi Camille,

    Since you asked, I thought I'd let you and your readers know that my book, The Truth About Mr. Darcy (formerly titled Affinity and Affection) is actually quite explicit, therefore, I urge anyone out there who might be offended by such content to please take note. Everyone else, well, I very much hope you'll read and enjoy!

    Thanks so much!

    Best,
    Susan Adriani

  2. @sadriani you just said the magic words "quite explicit"... I'll check it out when the Kindle version becomes available. Thanks for the heads up!
