Sharon--
THANK YOU THANK YOU for giving me my FAVORITE love story back! Similar to you, I fell in love with Keira Knightly and Matthew McFayden's representation of the story, and have been wanting more ever since. I have only just begun the series, but have been unable to put the books down! Your are so gifted, and truly, you do Jane Austen's beloved characters justice. Bravo, and thank you!

Ms. Lathan,
I have just read all 5 of your Darcy novels (except for Darcy Christmas) in a reading marathon spread over 2 weeks.
I am enthralled.
I hope that a new one will be forthcoming. I look forward to reading about a widowed Lydia and Georgiana marrying, etc.
Please let there be a next one on the way...please, please, please, please, please.
God bless,
Deb

I just finished your latest book. Please keep writing. I can't wait for the next one!

What can I say......I'm addicted! Keep up the great writing. I can't wait for your next book, can you write faster, LOL!

I am a huge fan of your Darcy Saga. I have never read a fiction like this in my life. You are gifted with the ability to make the reader feel and live with the characters. I have bought all the 5 books of the saga and all are exceptionally good. The way you have presented the saga is not presented by any of you contemporaries. I want to request you that please don't stop writing the saga as I want to see how the life of Lizzy and Darcy proceed in the coming years. It would be depressing if you stop. Please start writing the next part and release it as soon as possible. I, sorry we all who are fans of the saga are waiting for your next novel in the saga.

Hi Sharon
Greetings from still sunny Sydney Australia
Got my copy just after midnight, took me longer to read as I had two ereaders running to keep track of everyone,
I remind all who read on ebook to draw a tree (from your great list at the start) so to keep track of all the characters and children, such an amazing array of old and new people to meet.
Just finished ' The Trouble with Mr D' what a mind blower with some nice loose ends neatly tied in a bow. Could not spoil it for anyone.

Now the big wait for the next book - will spend my time rereading all of the current books, fevered expectation of the next

Thank you for writing such an amazing series. I understand the need to take a break from the stories but I do hope it will not be permanent. I have always loved the character of Mr. Darcy and you have truly made him almost real flesh and blood. I am saving my books for when my daughter is old enough to understand what a gentleman is and how a lady should be treated. We live in a modern and liberated age but some of the old world practices are not so bad. God Bless and continued success.

Hi again, I pre-odered the fifth book and received it a week ago since then I've read it twice. It is a great book so much happening, so much drama and action. I really, really enjoy it. I hope that you will write more books. For those who read "A Darcy Christmas" know a little bit about the future so I really believe that you will not leave us wondering about that. I look forward to the news about a new book. Thank you again for this one. See you soon.

Thank you so much for writing these six novels. I began to read your books when I saw the first one at Target a couple of years ago. I loved them and now preorder them from Amazon. I just finished the fifth one in three days. I will go back and read it a second time but not as fast. I hope this is not the last one. Thank you for writing this series. Nicole

Hi Sharon
Your books are the best. It has never took me more then a week to finish reading one. I just can't seem to put them down once I get one in my hands. When I read volume 1 I was in love and went searching for you on the internet. It made my day when I found out there were more to come. I find myself jumping out of my seat wating for volume 5, I just hope it's not the end.

Sharon,
Hello from Los Ranchos, NM. I love your books. They are beautifully written and really take me to another place in time. I am savoring each one and have ordered Volume 3. I see you are releasing Volume 5 and I can't wait to get there. Thanks for keeping the saga alive with such taste and thoughtfulness.

Dear Sharon: I just finished reading your contribution to A Darcy Xmas and enjoyed it immensely. I have read the other books in this series and loved them. Pride and Prejudice is one of my favorite book an I have read it dozens of times. You have done Jane Austen proud. Thank you very much. Can't wait to read more books in this series. Wonderful work!

Hi Sharon
greeting again from sunny Sydney Australia (yes its is still summer) Thank you Thank you Thank You The Trouble with Mr Darcy has finally been made available for me to download on my ebook site - I am so excited will be able to read it in 25 days what a joy. The only problems for all us fans is - of course - the next installment - you are just going to have to start writing faster. Its so exciting and I can hardly wait. You are a true joy and it is so nice to read books that are relaxing and happy with the touch of drama to make them exciting. I wish you joy, happiness and success and to all those out there who think that Jane Austin is boring - you don't even have to like Pride and Predudice - just sit back - read - and enjoy the fun and drama

I am such a big fan of the Darcy saga. I was so excited to hear that The Trouble with Mr. Darcy will be available in April. I love the books and get so engrossed in the story. Congratulations on your continued success and I'm eagerly awaiting the next book. Thank you for such a wonderful series.

I am a huge Jane Austen fan and Pride and Prejudice happens to be my personal favorite out of all her novels. When I saw the 2005 film version with Keira Knightly and Matthew Macfadyen, I became even more obsessed with Elizabeth Bennet and William Darcy. The only thing that was missing was what happened to the couple after they got married. Well, I was shopping at a Target store in Michigan while on vacation and I just happened to stumble upon the book entitled Mr. and Mrs. Fitzwilliam Darcy: Two Shall Become One. It sounded so interesting, but unfortunately I am a tight wad and wasn't sure if this would book would stay true to the characters and the writing style of Jane Austen. After a couple of weeks I just couldn't take it anymore. I bought the book at Target and was hooked after the first page. I just couldn't put it down and read it within a couple of days. Sharon Lathan, You are a Genius. You stayed true to the original story and made it your own. The relationship between Elizabeth and William is so beautiful because they are a couple who are truly in love and are not afraid to express their love for one another. Some people would say that the book is all about the marital relations between the couple, but it is so much more than that. If you are a true Pride and Prejudice fan you would know from the beginning that Elizabeth and Darcy are complete opposites, but they both provide to each other what the other needs. After they are married, they quickly discover that their love for one another is much deeper and that they cannot imagine living without the other even if they are separated for a day. Truly, I recommend this book and the sequels to anyone who enjoys Jane Austen. Sharon Lathan has brilliantly continued the famous love story in a way that no one else has been able to do. I"m actually re-reading the books over again and I'm falling in love with them all over again. Thank you Sharon for continuing one of my favorite books ever written.

I loved the movie just as you did, in fact i have watched it so many times I know it word for word. When I found your first book while looking for new reading material, I said hey I will give it a try. being an avid reader I had already read P&P. I started to read it on a Saturday, my weekend off that only comes once a month for me. Anyway I found myself back in the bookstore Sunday, because I read volume 1 in a day. Then I picked up volume 2, and 3, that was in November. My birthday being in December I was gifted volume 4, and Darcy Christmas. I am now waiting patiently for the next one in April. In the meantime I will reread the others, I am totally addicted to your books. You write so beautifully, and what you have done with the storyline is wonderful. Keep up the good work, I look forward to reading more from the saga for years to come.
January 28, 2011 | Michele

I just want to say, I love your books! I'm always wary of sequels by other authors, or just imitations in general, but this addition to Austen's work, I think, would get even her approval! Well done! You did what I've been wishing I had the talent (and the time!) to do. It's just a lovely continuation to a lovely story. I also have to say, as an Austen movie adaptation geek, my personal favorite depiction is the 2005 movie. I'm a huge Collin Firth fan, but the most recent blows that one out of the water. Thank you!!!
January 25, 2011 | Kate in Illinois

I would just love to say how much I enjoyed the first book. I found the book at my local library and saw the other books there too. However, I decided to try the first one out only. I am so heartbroken that it has ended, yet I know there are more to read! It is bittersweet. I can always judge how good a book is by how I feel after I read it, and the best ones always make me sad because their finished. I can't wait to see Darcy and Elizabeth's love continue!
January 23, 2011 | Nico

I am devoted Austen fan and adore Pride and Prejudice. Thank you for continuing the Darcy romance! I ponder what will happen to Lizzy and Mr. Darcy and am happy that they are deeply in love and witty as ever. Can't wait to read more!
January 21, 2011 | Khanh

Thank you so much for continuing P&P. I started reading these through my library, but they only had the first two books of the series, so I had to purchase the other two. I can't wait until April for your next book. Now I need to buy the first two so I can read all four over again! I love the passion between Darcy and Lizzy, not just in their loving, but also in their disagreeing. I catch myself going back rereading passages that touch me. It's a great reminder to us just what a healthy relationship should consist of: honesty and understanding. Andrea - Syracuse, NY

Hi there!
I am a teenager and I must say, I LOVE these books! It was a bit of a random choice of me picking the first of the saga at a bookstore. I was rummaging through the shelves and I told my father, "Just pick one that looks interesting and is based on Pride and Prejudice." 10 seconds later, I had Mr. & Mrs. Fitzwilliam Darcy in my hands! Let me tell you, I read that book in the shortest amount of time simply because I just couldn't put it down! Please visit us sometime in southern or central North Carolina! We would love to meet you! Also, your books inspired me to start my career/hobby in writing romance novels. I sincerely feel as if I am in the story with Georgiana, Lizzy, and Darcy! Can't wait to read the new one coming out in April! I look forward to it!

I am from Pennsylvania, just a teenager, but absolutely devoted to your books. I have absolutely fallen in love with these books. I have them all and cannot wait until your next release! I fell in love with the story of Pride and Prejudice when I saw the same movie as you just last year, Sharon. I love Mathew MacFadyen now. The movie was perfect, it showed the epic romance increasing with love, hate, pride, and prejudice. Even if I am just a teenager myself, I know a good book when I read one. I honestly think because of you, I fell in love Mr. Darcy as much as any other teen girl would love some pop star. I think you are a wonderful author, and you express the love life, challenges, humor, and family duties with grace and elegance... I feel like I am in the 1800s when I read your beautiful novels.

It is a great inspiration to me, you should never stop writing the continuations, you should write until Darcy and Lizzy are eighty years old and Alexander and their expected children to come are grown with families of their own. These stories are addictive, and I absolutely love it! The detail you use and the emotions you can fill the page with is incredible. You have a true talent, when I read your books it is like I am standing in the rooms watching and listening to the story unfold. I don't even need pictures to imagine what you are saying, the images pop into my head as though I honestly am standing right there. I just cannot get over your beautiful work; the words you use are very precise. You truly do have an amazing talent; I cannot say how happy I am to have found your books!

I saw the movie and read the original novel by Jane Austen. I just kept falling deeper and deeper in love with the stories, I went searching for sequels and continuations and praise the Lord I found your books! I got them immediately, and I swear I could read them over and over again for the rest of my life, just like I could watch the movie every night.

My friends act like it is weird reading these books because they are so different and strange, with such big words and romantic stuff in them. I completely disagree, if I could, I'd tell everyone about your books. They deserve to be spread all over the world. To me you are like another Jane Austen, you're dialog and characters are very much like hers to me... I love it. Love, love, love it! Keep writing, because you have inspired me to write novels of my own. My books are three to five hundred pages long because I have learned from your perfect mastery. I want to say thank you for writing, it has been a true pleasure and honor to read your books. I am devoted to Darcy for life now, thanks to your wonderful skill. You are my inspiration, and I look up to you and hope maybe someday my novels will be as great as yours... but I am very doubtful I could even come close to your expertise. I only wish I could meet you and talk about your books and thoughts. I know that will never happen, but I still believe that you are my inspiration and hero. Thank you so much, you have touched me deeply and I will someday tell my kids about your wonderful books so your skill and amazing novels will live on forever.

Hi I am 19 and live in the UK. Found out about your books while researching Mr Darcy, I had the books for Christmas and they are amazing, thank you for writing them. You are an amazing writer.

Hello Sharon,
Happy New Year to you and your family! I just wanted to take the time to say "Thank-you" for the Darcy Saga Books. I fell upon them quite accidentally and I fell in love instantly. I do not proclaim to be a romantic but these books were just what I needed over the last couple of months. I am reading the fourth one now - In the Arms of Mr. Darcy and I do not think I can wait until April until the new one comes out. I love your style, the story itself and I feel as though William and Elizabeth are my friends. Their whole world is so different from mine but love is love no matter where one lives and what time we live in. Thank-you once again for your books! I wish you continued success in all of your future endeavors.
January 5, 2011 | Maria - Canada

Hello Sharon,
Well, first and foremost, I must thank you wholeheartedly for your wonderful books. I am awaiting the arrival of A Darcy Christmas, which will hopefully arrive in a few days. I am also waiting (quite impatiently, I might add) for the release of The Trouble with Mr Darcy this year.
Thank you once again,
Samantha

Happy New Year Sharon,
Just twelve and a half hours to go and 2011 will be ushered in. May God truly bless you and yours during the new year and beyond. I most emphatically agree with Mary, the commenter before me; I've often wondered if Keira and Matthew had a chance to read your books, WOW!!!!! I think ticket sales to the theatre and later DVD sales would sky rocket. I have stated this more than once; Sharon there is a whole new industry where you could exercise some influence over and you and your family would love to go to England, right.

Today is my 62nd birthday and I can't think of nicer people to share it with than those who love P*P.
God Bless,
December 31, 2010 | Christa Buchan, Regina, Sask.

I, too, am new to your Darcy series and thrilled to have stumbled upon them. Your stories exactly suit, in my mind, where the book and movies left off, mostly particularly the 2005 P&P. I love the intellectual, emotional, and physical intimacy you created between Elizabeth and Darcy. It so captures the intensity of their attraction and depth of their characters, as Jane Austen wrote. Equally you continue Jane Austen's independent woman ahead of her time. Well done! Equally well done is your research into the Regency period and day-to-day life, for one feels delightfully transported there.

Has there been any dialogue between you and Keira and Matthew? Do they know about the series, for it would be wonderful if it piqued their interest in a sequel. Lawd have mercy, could we 2005 P&P fans stand it!

Hi Sharon
Greeting from sunny Sydney - just received your excerpt today, I want one, I want a copy to read and literally can't wait, but I have gone to all my ebook suppliers and to no avail - I can't believe it. Will it be available in ebook form as was your last books? It was soo exciting pre-ordering it and having it one minute after midnight to read it the same day instead of waiting for it to be shipped from overseas. I loved your bravery of having them available on ebook for everyone to read, please say it will be the same this time, so I can start harassing the book suppliers
Have a great Christmas and New Year - Kiki
December 23, 2010 | Christine

I just pre-ordered The Trouble with Mr .Darcy !! Can't wait for April 1st!!! I enjoy the beautiful stack of all your books on my nightstand πŸ™‚
December 22, 2010 | Ingrid Anderson

I can not thank you enough for writing these books. I too saw the movie first and then read P&P. I love the story and never want it to end. Please keep writing these amazing books. I come home everyday after work and read one of our novels after the kids are in bed. Its my "me" time. Cant wait for your April!

Hi
Love you books and can't wait for the next one - always read a Darcy Christmas - when I want a quick pick me up sooo much joy and heartbreak all in one. Want more of Georgie and Richard and the incredible stories of the children and of course Elizabeth and William and their all encompassing life. P and P was never like this such a rollercoaster ride for all the characters

I am a new Pride and Prejudice fan and like most did not want the story to end. I picked up the first book in this series a couple of weeks back to take on a vacation to Mexico with me. Let me just say I could not put it down the whole week! I have recently purchased the rest of the series and am on pins and needles for them to arrive in the mail. Well done Sharon, keep them coming!
December 8, 2010 | Megan

I have never been more lost in a book than Pride and Prejudice. I read it many times because I didn't want that story to end. You made it continue with passion and love:) Thank you so much!

I discovered your series about two weeks ago through my public library. They only have the first two volumes, so I am having to purchase the rest of the series! I don't know if I can wait the week it will take to ship the books to me!! One of the best Darcy series I've ever read. Thanks so much for all the joy!

I adore your Darcy Saga books! I discovered the first couple last year when I was browsing the bookstore and fell in love with them. I have been a fan of P&P since I read the book back in high school and saw the 2005 version. Your books just make me love the story even more! I'm very excited for any future books.
November 4, 2010 |Melanie

Hi Sharon,
My name is Lauren I am 21 years old residing in Jacksonville, Florida. I came across your books while browsing my local bookstore (as well as Mr. Darcy's Diary by Amanda Grange), so I figured I would give it a shot because I read the original P&P in high school and adored the 2005 movie version (which at the time was the only I had seen). Well I accidentally purchased the second book in the saga so for my birthday my dad bought the rest of the saga so I could start from the beginning and continue on since it's becoming apparent that I am obsessed. It's taking me a bit longer than I would like to finish them but I think my husband gets jealous sometimes of my apparent feelings for Mr. & Mrs. Darcy (or maybe just my obsession with Mr. Darcy). I just wanted to say that even though I am no critic and do not posses the Austen knowledge that some do, I think what you have done is brilliant. It's beautiful, and it has sparked so many emotions and appreciations for romantic sentiments in myself. I truly wish that these books could go on for eternity. Thank you so much for writing these books that too often feel like they were written just for me!
November 4, 2010 | Lauren

Hi Sharon,
I finally received my books on the 20th of October and finished the three novellas on the 21st. I have always pictured your Darcy and Lizzy (and all other characters) from the 2005 film without hesitation. The other stories from Amanda Grange and Carolyn Eberhart are definitely based on the 1995 characters from the BBC production. The sound of the characters, especially Mrs. Bennet, is very different as are the subtly nuances in how Darcy relates to Lizzy.

I loved this book. It made me laugh, think about my own Christmas memories, the loss of loved ones and how I grieve as well as all the funny things that seem to happen when you allow life to be. I also cried. The last page truly spoke volumes. Nine years ago I had a house fire and it destroyed all my keepsakes of my babies and those made especially for me by my mom. I am glad that you write " life" into you characters; it makes Darcy and Lizzy come alive.

Thank you so much for sharing your gift. Many God Blessings.
Christa

Sharon,
I absolutely love these books! I have read all of them now, just finished A Darcy Christmas today. I will now live in a state of anxiousness and anticipation for your next book to come out in April 2011! The months cannot go fast enough! Thank you so much for your wonderful writing.
October 23, 2010 | Diane

HI Sharon - Greeting from Sydney Australia
How glad I am that you write about they Darcys. I was so happy to get In The Arms of Mr Darcy and A Darcy Christmas.
I was impressed that you had them in ebook form and more impressed that you had them available to your overseas readers. As a result I had them on pre-order and received them at one minute after midnight on the day of release.
Needless to say they were read that day and I must go back to the beginning again waiting for the next installment.
So many authors forget us, here in Australia, we are actually great readers of quality material, even encouraging children to read with book based readathons to expand their love of the written word.
My friends all fight over my paperback versions as they are not sold here.
Love your characters although in this episode they seemed a little hurried or maybe its just me. The Christmas stories of the other two authors were lost on me but saving you to last was a masterstike. Was it your way of tying up the Darcys just in case - it was clever, if a little brief
I Love your work - keep writing about the Darcys, including Georgie and especially Richard
Best Wishes from Australia Kiki

Hi Sharon,
I was so excited as October neared, knowing that your latest book would be released. Luckily I waited to rush out and get it because my husband bought me a Kindle for my birthday. I was so excited to find your book in a Kindle version! I downloaded it, and within seconds began reading again of Darcy, Elizabeth and the entire family. I have been in love with the stories since I picked up the first book last year. Thank you so much!
October 18, 2010 | Rebecca

I love your books! I found out about them from a friend who knows I am obsessed w/Pride and Prejudice! I love Elizabeth and William! I hope I can find someone like him to complete my happiness one day as I am still looking. I have had a couple of college beaus and a few since college, but your books give me hope
October 16, 2010 | mlw

Good evening Sharon,
I have been waiting so patiently for October 1 to come so that I, like many, many others, could go and pick up my order of your two latest books. I know that here, in the middle of Canada, mail and deliveries can move slow, but this is getting a little bit ridiculous; I still have not received my order; mind you, no one else has either. I am happy that all of you who are reading In the Arms of Mr. Darcy and A Darcy Christmas are enjoying it, I just with I was one of you. I told my friend's daughter about your books and she can hardly wait to borrow mine. I know she will fall in love over and over again; just like the rest of us.
Still waiting,
Christa/Regina

I am in love with your book series! I carry it around on my ipad all day to read whenever I have a free moment! I want the new book to be uploaded to the Apple book store!!
October 10, 2010 | Stephanie

I just finished reading a Darcy Christmas. I enjoyed your story so much. I laughed and cried. I'm sure Jane Austen herself would have loved seeing how her beloved Lizzy and Darcy coped with married live, your books are great I'm always so excited when you come out with a new book I go back and read the older books so I'm all ready for your new book. I have in the arms of Mr. Darcy and will start it later today. Do you have any plans for your books to go audio. I'm disabled and crochet and knit a lot so I'm always hoping my favorite author will have their books transferred to audio as well as written. Again I love all your books. Please keep writing about Lizzy and Darcy. Thank you sooooo much

Thank you so much for continuing their story, when I found you I was so excited and have sung your praises to some friends at work who have since become fans. Keep up the great work!

Dear Sharon,
My name is Ala. I am 22 years old and I just finished (like couple minutes ago) the fourth book from the Darcy saga. I red the first three within a week. Frankly I slept only couple of hours a night so I could continue to read. I adore your books. The life of Lizzy and Darcy if just so perfect. As English is my second language I cannot express all that is in my mind about your work but I read all the books more than five times. So you can see I really, really like them. AND I can't wait for the next one (The trouble with Mr. Darcy). I hope there will be many of them (Books I mean not troubles). Thank you from NC.

Dear Sharon,
My name is Rebecca. I am 15 years old and may or may not be younger than most of your readers. over the summer in 2010 i went to a book shop and came across the book "Pride and Prejudice" by Jane Austen. I had been wanting to read it ever since I saw the movie with Keira Knightly and Mathew McFayden. I read the book and absolutely fell in love. I had then went to target to get a new book and stumbled across yours. Please forgive me for writing so much but I believe it is important to start a story from the beginning. Anyway I instantly bought "Mr. and Mrs. Fitzwilliam Darcy". I devoured it in the course of about two weeks. When I looked in the back I saw you had written even more books. I cannot wait to read them all. I would like to thank you for writing these books. It's really cool to know what's happening with America's favorite couple. I know a lot of people must tell you but if you get a chance it would be an honor to hear from you. Thanks for providing us with the continuation of Mr. and Mrs. Darcy.
Sincerely,
September 30, 2010 | Rebecca Prado

Sharon,
I bought your first two books at a Sam's Club in May of 2010. I loved Pride & Prejudice with Kiera and Matthew. When I saw your books, I decided to give them a try. I was really interested in finding out what would happen after the proposal. I couldn't believe what a great job you did in continuing the storyline! Jane Austen would be honored. I couldn't put the books down. I promptly went to look for your 3rd book and also read that. I am anxiously waiting for
your next book "In The Arms of Mr. Darcy". I am hoping that your books will be made into movies!!! Thank you for keeping the Darcy's romance alive!

Dear Sharon,
Stopping in to say how much I enjoy reading your books. I've read them nearly three times over. πŸ™‚ You inspire me as an authoress, and I've been working on a project this past year. Good luck to you and all of your endeavors!

Hi!!!!!
I don't even know where to start, I found "Loving Mr.Darcy" at Target one time while looking for books..I have been a big time of Mr.Darcy since the Movie "Pride and Prejudice" that was released in 2004 or 2004 with Keira Knightley but my obsession was my dearest Mr.Darcy..
Thru your books I have fallen in love with this person that does not even exist!! Let me tell you that my husband has some serious competition!! Your books have made me fall in love with the actor Mathew HAHAHAHA
I'm patiently waiting for "In the arms of Mr.Darcy"!!
I'm in love again!! πŸ™‚

Hello Sharon,
I read the first book in the series three times before I found books two and three. Now I am doing a complete read through and what a joy it is. I also saw the 2005 rendition of P & P (bought the DVD which I watch regularly) which gives your books faces, cultural nuances and a greater insight into the society of the early 1800's.

When I sit in my chair, reading the Darcy saga, a movie screen opens up in front of me and I swear that I could smell the grass and the roses in Lizzie's garden; I can see William on Parsifal racing across the meadow and when William and Lizzie are in their chambers, I can see the rooms with great clarity. Thank you for using your paintbrush of words and giving to me many hours of amazing movies.

As God has given you this awesome talent, which you are sharing with the world, I pray that there would be a director and producer; touched by God, to recognize what a wonderful movie your books would make. I would like to think that Jane Austin herself would read your books and applaud you for continuing her original story.
I am looking forward to the next two books. Thank you again for sharing your talent.

Hi Sharon,
I've told every one of my girlfriends about you! Three of my friends are on the first book, I'm starting the second one and am so in love with the true love story of the Darcy's. It is so beautifully written it makes me want to have been born back then so I could have met Mr. Darcy. I will tell all about your books and make sure anyone I come in counter with knows about you!! I hope you forever write another book and another book and another... please never stop!! Thank you again Sharon for bring true love back into lives all across the world!!
Take care

Hi Sharon,
I am in all...... I loved Pride and Prejudice. I never by movies but this is the only movie I bought. I by accident ran across Mr. and Mrs. Fitzwilliam at Boarders 3 days ago and decided to purchase it. I CANNOT PUT IT DOWN!! It can not be beautifully written. You nailed the true Mr. Darcy. I've been so obsessed with your book that I started to read it much slower because I was so scared for it to end!! I went online today just to see if you happen to have written another book after Mr. and Mrs. Fitzwilliam. I am so very excited to see that the love continues and now I can finish this first book, knowing many more are in line! Please do not store the story, I hope you always continue the true love of Mr. and Mrs. Darcy.

Dear Sharon,
I recently have seen the 2005 movie of "Pride & Prejudice" at least 20 times on cable. My local cable company had it playing at least twice a day for 2 consecutive weeks. I watched it at least 10 of those times! Well Sharon, I amazed to realize how much you & I, similarly, have been totally inspired & stimulated by this rendition of Jane Austen's story! I am a big fan of 19th century English Literature & devour any books or movies from that time!!

That being said, although Charlotte Bronte is my favorite author of that time, I absolutely enjoy Jane Austen as a close second! I have read Pride & Prejudice 1st, years back & although I do remember enjoying it, this current movie has stood out in my mind more profoundly! Like yourself, I have seen other renderings, but this version with Keira Knightley & Matthew Macfayden has touched my soul! These two actors are exactly how I pictured William & Lizzy & my hat goes off to these wonderful actors with admiration, respect & thankfulness. Bless the director.

In turn, I want to thank you, Sharon. Thank you for YOUR wonderful interpretation in writing of this truly wonderful story of these two lovers. You brought forth a wonderful series of books that I have & will continue to enjoy!! There are many critics in the world who either love or dislike your rendering.......so being......everyone's a critic & everyone has an opinion. Please continue to share with myself & others your visions & stories of how you dream of the Darcys lives to be. You are a wonderful writer & I truly am moved & inspired by your Darcy Saga. Thank you, thank you, thank you....

I am also a hopeless romantic & a big fan of happy endings in stories. That being said I wanted to thank you & compliment you on your interpretation in your books of how the wonderful Darcys' lives have continued. Mostly, I read to escape my realities of life, as most of us do.

I am a huge fan of the P&P novel and movies. I first saw your book at Sam's Club and figured I'd give it a go. By the end of the book I was hooked. I went back to Sam's and was lucky enough to buy the last of the next two books. I think my favorite 'new' character that you have added is Uncle George! I love him he is so funny and such a loving family member. I got all three books read in a little over a month and have been 'patiently' πŸ™‚ awaiting for the newest one to arrive in stores. Thank you so much for your continuation on of the P&P story.
September 6, 2010 | Julie Judd

Hello from the new website! I'm looking forward to trying your books!
September 6, 2010 | Chelsea B.

I cannot wait for the next book to come out. I have read the others and will be at the bookstore on October 1st.

Dear Sharon, I happened to be walking through the book section at my local Target store when I spied your book " Mr. and Mrs. Fitzwilliam Darcy" I grabbed it and ran to the cash register to buy it! After that, I could not find the 2nd book so I went on Amazon and bought your 2nd and 3rd books from there. I love your Darcy Saga so much that I have read all 3 of the books that are out so far over and over. They are so beautifully written and are exactly what I believe Jane Austen would have written if she had written a sequel to Pride and Prejudice. You have captured the characters perfectly and continued their stories in the most logical and satisfying way possible. Also, as I read them I can easily picture Mathew Mcfayden and Keira Knightly and all of the actors from that film saying the words you have written. I do not even wish to read any other authors renditions out there in regards to these wonderful characters as they would just ruin it for me now that I have read your books.. Thank you so much for writing these lovely books and please continue writing more and more, I am anxiously awaiting your 4th and 5th books and hoping there will be more after that,, Thank you from Julie Wilkinson, Long Beach, Ca

Dearest Sharon,
I just finished reading, " Mr. and Mrs. Fitzwilliam Darcy". BRAVO!!! You have renewed my love of reading love stories. I am
astounded, not only by the realistic sensuality of the Darcy's, but also by the reality of the bond, that goes deeper than life itself, between two people who truly love each other. I am now 61 years of age and I thought I had a good knowledge of sensuality and sexuality, but your book was an eye opener and I would vehemently recommend this book to any and all virgin engaged couples. I am now on a hunt for successive novels and I know that I would stand in line to see the movie, hopefully with Keira Knightley and Matthew Macfadyen. You have truly succeeded in what you were striving for. Thank you for the many hours of much enjoyed reading, dreaming and re-reading.
August 9, 2010, Christa Buchan.

Dear Sharon
I just wanted to say thank you for your lovely email, I was very grateful for a reply, and I read the second installment Loving Mr Darcy in 3 hours during my holiday. It was an amazing read, and I was completely glued to it, you kept me on the edge of my seat at the end when the bandits appear and attack Darcy and Lizzy!
Since then I have increased my Darcy book collection tenfold!! (I buy any Darcy book I can get my hands on, and there was a definite link in the books I took on holiday!!!)
I plan to buy the next few books in the series before I go off to University so I will take them all with me! (I have discovered a bookstore which stocks them close to me)
August 2, 2010 | Holly Jay Foster

Sharon,
Thank you so much for your lovely books. I am a huge fan of pride and prejudice! I had bought books by other authors about the days following the original novel, but was often disappointed. I stumbled upon yours on a Target shelf and thought I would give it a read. I have since bought all three and have read each twice! I cannot wait for further books in the fall! I love the stories you weave of a romantic and loving life between Mr. and Mrs. Darcy and those around them.
Bless you,

Dear Mrs. Lathan,
I am forever a fan of the "happily ever after" endings. As an avid romance novel reader, I've always found comfort in this genre when life has become stressful. This past year I reread P&P again after a hiatus of many years. I belong to a book club and through one of our many discussions was reminded again of how much I love the story of Darcy and Lizzy. After rereading I noticed many of the P&P sequels available online. I believe true P&P fans believe that love endures all in the story of Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth and I personally had no interest in reading any of the sequels that wrote of discontent in the marriage and lives of the Darcys. Your stories captured my interest because they told of the love, passion and faithfulness between Darcy and Lizzy. I was not disappointed. I have purchased, read and reread all three books. I believe you have been faithful in your writing to the true story and characters of Darcy and Lizzy and I have enjoyed the back stories to many of the key events in the novel. I appreciate how the Darcys stand together and face crisis and drama together as man and wife should. I have also come to love many of the secondary characters such as Georgiana, cousin Richard and Uncle George.

I eagerly await the release of your 4th book, In the Arms of Mr. Darcy and The Darcy Christmas and preordered them on Amazon this week! After reading your blog, I see that the 5th book has been titled, The Trouble With Mr. Darcy, however I have not been able to find a synopsis of this book yet. I look forward to what I hope are many "happily ever after" installments of The Darcy Saga.
Thank you for your commitment to P&P, the Darcys and to your devoted fans!
July 14, 2010 | Jackie

Sharon, I just bought an iPad and my first purchase was the Darcy saga Two Shall Become One. It was amazing!!!! I then had to buy the next two books and I am currently rereading all three books. I am so looking forward to the two new books coming out this fall. Thank you for the beautiful stories. As a die hard Darcy and Lizzy fan, I am thrilled to see their story continue. Can't wait to download the new books! Thanks for everything.
July 11, 2010 | Kirsten

I love Pride and Prejudice and was very happy when I stumbled onto these books. Once I read the first book I had to get the next two books. I am very happy to learn that there is another book to read, since I just finished My Dearest Mr.Darcy.And I wanted to continue reading the Darcy Saga.You write very well, and should be proud that your books are very hard to put down and you just want to keep on reading them.Your continuation of Pride and Prejudice has been my favorite.Thank you for writing these books, and please continue writing if you can.
Thanks much
June 29, 2010 | Erika Carlson

I just had to tell you how much I love this series. I accidentally stumbled on it at the book store and it caught my eye because I had just read the original Pride and Prejudice and saw the movie. I read the first one in 2 days and quickly ordered the other 2, and can't wait for the new one this fall. I have told all my friends about them and just wanted to say THANK you for writing them.
June 18, 2010 | Jenitta Eskew

Hi!
I'm a reader from the UK and up until I found Mr and Mrs Fitzwilliam Darcy I had no idea that a sequel to Pride and Prejudice existed, and I have not been disappointed. It has provided riveting reading over the past TWO days (I've been trying to multi-task while reading it) and as a young writer myself it is a good stimulus to read for examples of how an old story can be redeveloped. I would also like to ask whether you know if the other sequels are available in UK, as I am struggling to find them.
Thank you for incomparable hours of joyous reading, I would love to see the sequel made into a film or Tv series, as I know that it is difficult to maintain the quality of such a well known book, but for me, it was just as if Pride and Prejudice had never ended.
Thank you once more, I would really appreciate a reply
June 16, 2010 | Holly Jay Foster

Dear Sharon,
I too fell in love with the movie in 2005 and its not till now that I am reading your first Darcy Saga book. Thank you so much for writing this book. I am in love with their love story and always wanted more after the movie. I didn't know about your books but then again I am new to the reading world. I'm so exited to read all of them, I can't wait!!
June 3, 2010 | Kelly Gregoire

Hi Sharon!
I have to say that I have never posted on any blog before but I had to share how I came about your books. I received a birthday box from my best friend. In it was a very comfy robe with a cute pair slippers and a dog-earred copy of your first book, Mr. and Mrs. Fitzwilliam Darcy: Two Shall Become One. Here was my email to my friend after I finished it...

"As I sat and lamented you on the silliness of the book I still to my chagrin kept turning the pages and reading the book until its finish. Intermittently lamenting upon Michael (my significant other) how Mr. Darcy said this or that...the sword fight between Mr. Darcy and the despicable Orman...until alas I finished the last page tonight at 9:30 much to my dismay! So I hastily donned my attire and with the wind upon my heels dashed to my four wheeled carriage off to Barnes & Noble who thankfully closes at 10:00!!! I departed with not only 'Loving Mr. Darcy' but also 'My Dearest Mr. Darcy! much to my delight!! I hurried with impatience and anticipation to my abode to turn the first crisp page...."

Today, June 1st, 2010 I woke up with my cup of coffee and quickly grabbed "My Dearest Mr. Darcy" noticing I had only a few chapters left! Scrambling around I'm looking everywhere for the 'next' book after...knowing I went to Barnes & Noble and bought the next two...I even ran into the bathroom where my significant other was showering to yell..."Do you know where my other book is??"..So I'm at work sadly finishing the last pages and realize I'm reading the last book!! LOL! Please hurry Sharon!! I can't wait for the continuation of Elizabeth and Darcy!!!
June 1, 2010 |

Sharon,
You are the BEST author for continuing the story of Pride and Prejudice! I have always loved Jane Austin, and was in Barnes and Noble---where they had other authors along with the Jane Austin books. I asked one of the staff about it, and they said that other people have continued the story, so I bought the first 2 of yours, and couldn't stop reading! Your books are Thrilling!!!!! I'm done reading the 3rd one, and cannot wait to read the next installments!!
Thank you for your artistry in writing, I love it!

Thanks so much for the post on my blog, I really appreciate your message. I do adore your books, and am so thankful for them, since I do not posses the talent for writing, it is nice to see my favorite story continue. I am also grateful for all the fanfiction websites too, it has been so much fun reading.

Sharon,
I am a huge Pride & Prejudice fan. I found your book "Mr & Mrs Fitzwilliam Darcy" at a book sales this past Thursday and spent my entire Mother's day reading it - finished just before midnight. Very well written and as I've seen others share would love to see it in movie form - if it could be the full story. I also love the movie from 2005 but feel they cut so much out that you miss too much. I also have the version with Colin Firth and while the actors are not as "pretty" as the 2005 version - the story is told in much more detail so I am torn between the two. I want to purchase and read more of your books but would like to know the order in which I should read them - please advise.

Thank you for keeping their love alive & the story going - Jane Austin would be proud!
May 10, 2010 | Charlene

Hi Sharon!
I love your books, once I got started I couldn't put them down. Can't wait for "In the Arms of Mr. Darcy" and hope there will be more that follow. I think a movie should be made with your book and I know a lot of girls who would paid to see it! Keep up the great work.
Happy reader,

Hi,Sharon.
I am a big fan of Jane Austen.'Pride and Prejudice' is absolutely my favourite and Mr&Mrs.Darcy must be my favourite couple.I consider you as my recent favorite writer since I read your Darcy saga which is 'My dearest Mr.Darcy'.Your Darcy sagas are really cool,indeed.
I want to know the release date of your coming saga which is 'A Darcy Christmas'.I am so interested in it and I want to read it so so much.Please tell me the release date and so I can get it as soon as possible!
Thank you so much.Wish you all the best.I am looking forward to more Darcy saga!

Mrs. Lathan!!
I've yet again been put under your spell of transporting me into the regal world of Mr. and Mrs. Fitzwilliam Darcy! I just finished your third installment of the Darcy Saga and I am reliving all the wonderful memories I had when reading your first novel. Your first book was read in a cruise ship library. It was fashioned to look old fashioned so naturally I chose the environment that further magnified the pleasure of your story! My life is slightly different now; I am a college student studying nursing and I count myself lucky if I get even 30 minutes to spare! Your latest book, as always, has forced me to sacrifice a few hours of studying just so I may find out what happens next. Your books have created an escape from occasional homesickness, stress, and the general daily grind. My ideal time to myself includes listening to the P&P soundtrack and delving into your novel. I feel like I would call Pemberley home and be inclined to play the pianoforte with Georgiana if I lived in the Darcys' world. So again, I would like to thank you immensely for the pleasure I gain from reading your novels. I received My Dearest Darcy in my Easter basket this year and it has far surpassed the joy of eating Reeses Eggs. πŸ™‚ I am so excited for your fourth book! You have a truly blessed talent that you have cultivated in such a rewarding way for both yourself and your readers. God bless.
April 22, 2010 | Caroline W.

I tried to email you, but maybe it did not go through. Anyway, LOVE your books! I too found all 3 at Sam's Club. I have read many other Darcy additions, and yours are by far the best! Thanks and keep them coming! I was wondering where you got the pictures of Darcy and Lizzy's wedding? My DVD does not include a wedding scene in the movie or does it have "extra scenes".
April 21, 2010 | Jan from NC

Thank you Sharon!!!!
ItΒ΄s been a long and busy day at work and now I am home and sit in front of my computer; reading your blog.
And then I see it: new excerpts of both, your 4th novel and the Darcy Christmas!
I read it now once and will read it many times again; I love your Christmas book! Thank you so much for it.
Especially I love the scene, where Lizzy and William are joined by their three children, and Lizzy is pregnant again. Noella is such a beautiful name, the perfect name when you are born on Christmas.
And all the new members of the family!
Thank you, thank you and God bless you.
Lots of love,

I just finished the third in your series. I fell in love with Jane Austen via Stephanie Meyer. Never saw any movie. Then after I read Eclipse in a day I needed to find out about this Elizabeth and Mr. darcy. I read the book then saw the movie, then a friend gave me the 1995 version with Colin Firth. that one is the book almost to a t however, Matthew is my ideal Mr. Darcy, the voice and size and all. Within the last year I have read almost 20 continuations of P&P and yours are awesome. Please Keep them coming. I read the three in 4 days so hurry, I read fast and furiously.
April 16, 2010 | Michelle Plew

Sharon, I loved P & P and upon finishing the novel, rented the movie. When I saw your book at Target, I grabbed it, anxious to read more about the Darcy's. Not usually being a Romance Novel fan, I wasn't sure I was going to like the book once I started it. However, I found that it is more than a romance novel. It celebrates P & P, a great time in history, the beauty of a wonderful relationship and more. I finished the book last night and went on Amazon.com to order the next two. I am just sorry that I didn't choose overnight shipping! Thanks for sharing your stories.
April 2, 2010 | Kim

Dear Sharon,
I can't wait till Oct. 2010 for your fourth book. I just finished number 3. I have finished these books in less than three weeks. What am I going to do now. I love the Kiera Knightley version of P&P.. I could see and hear her and Matthew when I read the books. I didn't think I could get attached to anything like my Twilight Saga but I did, thanks.
April 1, 2010 | Pam Myers

Sharon - you've taken a week out of my life! I bought all three books and have read and re-read them - and had a ball doing so! It's so much fun to get lost in the life of the Darcys. I can't wait for the new book next fall. Thanks for providing moments of escape from the real world. What a gift you have and what a gift you've given to your fans.

Ms. Lathan
I would just like to tell you how much I adore your novels. After reading all of Jane Austen, I was looking for a series of sequels to read. I had read a few of the sequels out there, and to be honest I hated every one of them. Then, I found yours. I simply love the plot you have created. One of my favorite details is the story line of Mary. In watching some of the versions of Pride and Prejudice, you really began to hate her, I was always very sorry for her. I am so happy that you have included story lines for all of the characters. Thanks you so much for these books. I can hardly wait for the next book to come out. Keep up the amazing work.
March 24, 2010 | Katie

Sharon I ordered the three set from Amazon and I am absolutely falling in love with your Mr. Darcy and Mrs. Darcy. Thank you so much for writing so beautifully the love that these two characters have for one another!
wrote on April 28, 2011:
I saw Pride and Prejudice with Kiera Knightly and Matthew MacFadyen and fell in love with it. Since seeing the movie I have read the book three times. It is my all time favorite book and movie. Just last weekend I was at Barnes & Noble and just came across your books. I was so ecstatic that I was going to buy all of them but decided I could only afford the first one. I read it non-stop in three days (during my lunch hour @ work and every night). I just finished it today and going to buy the second one on the way home today.

I loved the way you made Fitzwilliam a virgin. I believe this says so much about his character and when he did find love it would be "true love" and forever. I absolutely see Matthew MacFadyen's cast as Fitzwilliam Darcy and he is such an adorable "Adonis". He is and always will be Darcy for as long as I breathe. He did such a great job with the part and with your writing I can totally picture him facial expressions and him loosening up due to being truly happy with Elizabeth.

Please keep the books coming. Now I can see what happened with them after opening their hearts and souls to each other.
Thank you,

Sharon,
I fell upon Pride and Prejudice on a television channel. I had seen the pbs version but never had a chance to see it in the theater. I too am beyond hooked. So good to see I am not alone. I think the director did a superb job in casting as the 2 main characters are explosive together. I immediately went out to buy the DVD and to the local bookstore to buy anything and everything Jane Austen or related to her. That is how I found your books and you have me hooked. I can't wait until the new one comes out. I can watch this movie over and over and can't seem to get enough. I have always been in love with that era and can easily see myself living and breathing that time. Thanks for being such a great writer and for transporting me to a better place in these difficult times.

I discovered Darcy & Lizzy when I was going through a particularly rough patch in my own life, and I believe that these characters truly helped me through it - they were my escape from an otherwise dreadful experience. I love a good book as much as the next gal, but somehow Austen's works, particularly P&P, have invaded my soul like no other work of art. I have tried a number of the 'sequels', and I must say that I have enjoyed none so much as yours. My only complaint is that there are not more books in the series! I'm afraid I will need you to continue writing these books, for I do not know what I shall do otherwise. Of course I have not yet read your third book, but I can say confidently that I will need to know what happens in the lives of these two lovers beyond year's end. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, Sharon. And please please please keep writing!
September 20, 2009 | Daisy

I cannot put into words how much your books have meant to me. When I read Pride and Prejudice all I thought about was what happened next. You gave me exactly what I imagined there life would be. The moment I found your first book, Mr. and Mrs. Fitzwilliam Darcy, I filled with excitement. I could not wait for Loving Mr, Darcy to come out. So I just want to thank you for writing such amazing books and tell the story of the happiness of the greatest couple in literature.

Hi Sharon,
I am a huge fan of Jane Austens and have read many spin off books by other authors who have expanded upon Jane's original characters.
I stumbled across your book in Target last week, while out school shopping for the kids. I CAN NOT put the book down!!!!!
I want you to know that you have brought Elizabeth and William to life for me!!! and it is by far the best book I have read on Jane's beloved couple.
I can not wait for the next installments in September and Jan 2010!!!
Please continue to write you have such a gift. I normally pass on books that I have already read but this one and the next two will remain in my book collection.
Dont' stop writing and I know I speak for everyone we won't stop reading either!!!!

Hi Sharon,
I have read all three of your lovely books and find that I would love to read more especially about Dr Darcy. He is such a wonderful character and deserves a book of his own. I hope too that you are going to carry on writing about our favorite characters as I will be on the list for the next ones out. Best wishes for the future books

Wow! I have been obsessed with this book from the moment I picked it up. I would lie awake thinking about what was going to happen next and find myself upstairs in my little reading nook, until the wee hours of the morning. And then, I would take it to work to read on breaks and lunch - something I rarely feel compelled to do!

So, to be more specific about what I loved about this tale of William and Elizabeth's new life... I loved the tie-ins to the movie. I picture Keira and Matthew as these characters perfectly. I love how Darcy is so manly and virile, but so charming and endearingly sentimental... who couldn't love his cabinet of mementos, especially those related to Lizzy? I adore the idea of a passionate, loving, and wanton discovery of each other after all the suffering and patience. Marriage does not have to be dull! πŸ™‚

Matthew Macfadyen... yum! Absolute perfection as Mr Darcy. That voice, those eyes and lips... oh my!

I could go on and on, but let me just end by saying that I am extremely happy to have found this site and your book. I am eagerly awaiting the next installment. Thank you for bringing my favorite characters to life in such an enchanting manner!

I have been filled with fluffy goodness the past two days--all thanks to this book!! I stumbled across it at barnes and noble in kansas city and decided to glance through it and then i couldn't put it down! needless to say, i can hardly wait for the other two books to come out, for they too will surely fill me with the fluff i so desire! haha
thanks again!!

I just loved this book. Darcy and Lizzie enjoyed to have happiness after all the struggles to get there. The details of their first weeks together were fabulous. I couldn't put it down. Immediately after reading it, I wanted to start over again so I could savor the details one more time. I can't wait for the next book! Thank you for writing such an enjoyable book!

I absolutely loved this first book. I can not wait to go out and buy it so that I can read it whenever. I could not put it down. I can not wait for the next book. What a great story, the love and passion is exquiste. It makes me wish that I was Elizabeth. Thanks for writing a great love story that had me spell bound on the first page. My husband loved to watch me read this book. He could always tell when I got to a part that I absolutely loved. Keep up the superb work! THANKS!!!!!!!

Wow! I never cease to be amazed at what my baby sister has accomplished in her life. I haven't been here in a long time and while I have no real defense other than the fact I work all day on a computer and rarely sit down on one of the three computers we have at home, I can see I have missed a great deal. It's a very strange surreal feeling to see your sister in this light. It certainly not that I didn't think she had this talent in her, I always knew she was destined to do wonderful things, I just didn't know her talents would be in the literary field. Her and I both have always been avid readers and other than writing a jolly good letter (back when we used to do such things), and a cute line or two in a card, I didn't realize she had this all bubbling around inside waiting for the inspiration to burst forth. I love her story and the Darcy's feel like family now. We've always been history buffs, so I see where that came from, and we dearly love a good 'forever after' love story.....I guess I should have seen this coming! The very best thing of course is that her dreams are all coming true. I love you little sister.

Absolutely wonderful - I couldn't put it down and read it 3 times before relenting to let my 26 year old daughter read it. On the way out to buy two more. Can't wait for the next one!!!! Thank you so much

Dearest Sharon,
Those who have dreams, whether they be buried under the responsibilities and obligations of our day or simply forgotten as we have aged, need to have examples to look upon so we do not feel alone in our endeavors. I have dreams, ones that I may never realize, others I am still hopeful for......
My oldest child and I were at a book store. He went his way, off on his own, in search of his own interests. After a moment of feeling lonesome, reflecting on one of the most difficult years of my life after he had chosen to no longer live with me but reside with his father, I wandered through the store without purpose. I had exhausted all books by my favorite authors long ago and had found no one new that sparked my interest.
I truly believe that someone was looking over me. I was led to your book. It happened to be prominently displayed on top of a 5 foot bookcase and I stopped, stunned that someone had written a sequel. I had been re-reading p&p that previous week. My marriage had struggled during the year, secondary to my child's decision and felt lonely, tired, and a sadness that I couldn't seem to shake. I wanted some joy. Jane Austen always gave me that joy.
So I hope you can imagine my surprise and excitement when I discovered your book. I had not heard of you, your books, your website. I didn't even read the back cover. I bought it and started reading that night. It provided me with that joy I was so desperately seeking. It started my heart on the road to healing and restored my hope in romance, love, and marriage.
I was determined to find the sequel, from the teaser you provided at the end of your book, I knew I had to get it. I just assumed you had been established long ago and I had discovered a saga that had been on the market for years.
I tried Amazon, Borders, Barnes and Noble. Not understanding why additional books were listed on amazon that were not listed elsewhere and for quite a bit of money ($93.48 per book). So I gave up and decided to go to your website, hopeful of where I could purchase your books.
I am dismayed to read your blog. After only knowing you for 2 weeks since I purchased your book, I feel I have won and now lost.
I know this is a long post. But I felt it was adamant to share my words with you. I need you to know that I loved your book and I look forward to the release of your next edition, with great impatience. I will most likely pre-order it in the hopes that I will get it quicker!
I read some of the reviews. They are distasteful. And I am so sorry for the pain you have endured. However, the girls at work saw me reading your book. They were interested in obtaining it after I shared what it was and was about. I, too, work in a level 3 nicu, you see. I work with a great bunch of gals and we are always passing good books around. Your's is likely to take off fast in our unit. You have that effect.
Please take time and pray on this. It is best to utilize the gifts that have been bestowed upon us, those gifts we have are to be shared with others to enrich their lives.
You have enriched mine. And I thank you from my heart, one that has been bruised and is now on its way to healing, all because of romance and joy that was reintroduced into my life from your eloquent words.
May your weekend be one of reflection, joy, and blessings during this Easter season.

Hi Sharon, just read your latest blog post and was very sad! I can't imagine what it must be like to have the sort of scathing criticism you have had to put up with. But I wonder, why do you read it? Why not just ignore it? Your publisher seems to think otherwise and when it is so hard for good writers to get published these days doesn't that reaffirm to you that they disagree?
I've only read your first novel that was published by Sourcebooks and I loved it and did blog about it on both my blogs, which I've never done before. Anyway, I'm looking forward to the next book release and will be buying it directly from overseas so that I can have it quickly.
Chin up Sharon, get someone to give you some 'tough love', and please stop reading those negative reviews. Whingers are far louder than the rest of us who quietly and happily go about our lives and the act of living. I haven't read one negative review and nor will I. In fact, and I can't tell you who it was, but I read a good review on one of the blogs I follow and that's why I immediately ordered your book.
Take care

Sharon,
First let me say that I am not a genius at emails. I had to search a while to find where to post this. I enjoyed
your book very deeply however it was the encouraging words in the interview that has brought me here. Maybe I am feeling a little to emotional so I apologize.

I am about to celebrate my 20th anniversary with my one and only love. However has been working out of town as of late. My only daughter, a high school senior is on a cruise to the Bahamas with Girl Scouts which leaves me alone to my own idle thinking...

I have always been drawn to movies and books that seem to have the same theme. Poor undeserving girls with strong wills and minds of their own that fall in love with strong, sometimes older-ish men- Sabrina ( either movie version), for instance and also my other favorite book Jane Eyre. I guess I have always been a romantic. I know happy ending aren't in store for everyone. I have had troubles also. My deep felt connection with P&P is that I have 5 sisters. My oldest, not youngest made the Lydia mistake. My second to oldest is Jane in the flesh (name is Mary Jane) I did not marry for wealth, but my story is close to Lizzy's. My husband is 17 years older than I am. He says that I was the last lady to capture the heart of the TRUE last bachelor. I was only 18 when I met him. I went to work for him in his t-shirt shop as an airbrush artist.(married the boss) We worked everyday together for six years before we actually had our first date. I got to know him very well. I was 24 years old when we married. We have many, many story's to share with our daughter. A lot of them my husband has to address as "before I met your mother" -stories of his being in the carnival business, a kite salesman in Puerto Rico, working as a sound tech for big arena concerts...on and on. Those stories enthrall her. But the one subject she likes for ME to talk about is why did I marry him . So when she had to read P&P in school, we had some great character discussions that led to my own experiences with her father.
I love the MM KK version of P&P. I also love the A&E version. I get two totally different feelings and views out of each telling. Jane Austen's book is totally different in my head from either of these movies. I just can't get enough of the stories of Darcy & Lizzy. They are so familiar to me. I am glad that you let us readers know which version to see in our minds eye when we are reading. It truly makes a difference. I can not wait for the next book to come out!! SEPT REALLY!! My poor employees have to suffer with my obsession. I am forever making t-shirts with sayings on them they do not get until I tell them the meaning then I get the eyes rolling and the groans of NOT AGAIN. I think they are finally learning not to ask when I print a shirt that says for instance Pemberley Stables or something. I just let them assume it is for another polo team that has ventured into our town.
So thank you for your insight on your writing. It has been quit soothing when I am missing my family on a day such as this when I am left to my own Idle mind...
If only I could express myself like you. Sorry for the bad grammar.

Just finished Mr. and Mrs. FD. A wonderful experience. I am a Jane Austen fan for the past 40 yrs. I have read the original book so many times over the years. In addition I have seen every one of the movies (love the older ones). Always thought the book ended too soon and my imagination would have to fill in the gaps. I want to thank you so much. Your style of writing flows so similar to original author. It was wonderful. Anxiously waiting for September release. I actually had to stop myself from pulling over to the side of the road and start reading the book on my way home from book store. After reading the first few pages in the bookstore it was hard to put it down. When I got home, I immediately lit the fire, made the tea and settled down on the sofa for a read that lasted a good four hours. Could not put it down until I finished. Next step was to Google for the release date of the next book. Waiting till September seems like forever. Your book will hold a place of honor with the other Austen novels I hold dear to my heart. I have never emailed an author before re their releases. But your book made such a favorable impression I just couldn't resist. Thanks so much. Deb

I stumbled across your book recently. I have read many other Pride and Prejudice sequels, but yours is now my new favorite! I have read the book twice and can't wait for the rest of the story. You have captured what I have always thought Darcy and Elizabeth's marriage would be like. Your Mr. Darcy is just the gentleman I always dreamed he would be. Thank you so much for writing it!

I just want to say I just finished reading "Two Shall Become One". I purchased it about three weeks ago. I work all the time and do not get home til about 4am. I have little time to read but any spare time I do have I try to pick up a book and read. I have about four books that I had started reading. My friends and I started a book club three weeks ago and we all love period books. I believe I love Jane Austen's books the most in my group. That being said we were at Barnes and Noble picking out our first book to read for our book club and I looked at the title but I was captivated by the presentation of the book the illustration. In any case I informed by friends we need to read this one first even though it was not my turn to pick out the first book. I believe I am the first to finish the book and I love it. I can not get enough of it. I plan on reading it again but then towards the end of the book it stated a sneak preview to 'journeys beyond pemberley" is this a new book? So I made haste and eagerly googled Mrs. Sharon Lathan and so here I am. I love it, love it, love it. I will have to recommend the second book to the club since it is my turn to choose this next time.

Sharon!
OMG! I just finished reading your book! I came across it at a local store I frequent and it wasn't in my plans to purchase anything... but one look at the title I pictured Mr. Darcy and said this will be good! I wasn't disappointing! The first time I watched the movie I cried like a baby! Knowing somehow that a love like that is more and more impossible to find. These generations it is not easy to forget the "vices and follies of others" but well your book has fulfilled every part I wanted continued! Steamy, sexy and EXTREMELY LOVING! It is and will be a saga that I expect to continue! Thank you for fulfilling (mine) and many others fantasies! πŸ™‚ keep it coming!
(somehow it has taught me to hope that there can be such a LOVE out there...)

Dear Sharon,
I am completely fascinated by your site and your story!

I have been reading and rereading Jane Austen's novels since I was 10. They have always been my "meditative" books. Funny as it is, considering Master Degree in English Literature and an enormous amount of books I am to read in my life, they have always been those books that I needed to have with me to think about life, love, to feel I'm alive, that I am a woman.

I remember watching "Pride and Prejudice" TV series when I was loved, when I was heart-broken, hoping for better, always being reminded by this book that a quick witted, sarcastic woman can find a man to appreciate and worship her.

I didn't watch this movie as I thought I didn't want to see another Lizzie. But I watched it today, because I felt lonely and lost, far away from my country, in Winnipeg, Canada, the city where winter is six months long and everything is sleeping under a thickest blanket of snow.

I simply love it. And I think, it is forever.

I was browsing the net just idly looking for pictures from the movie and found your site. I'm ordering your books from Amazon today and will be still waiting for published ones. I love to put my books on a shelf. I am sure I'm going to love them, considering how much I liked the passages you have online.

I won't tell you how much I admire your style, your talent... I'm going to say how much I admire your bravery! Knowing how many people will have their feelings touched and challenged by your books and still being courageous enough to publish them! I know they are worth it and I just want to express my support to you.

Remember, people should be able to read your books, even if they still don't know it. They are going to love your saga!
Sorry for a lengthy letter, With respect, Katya

Hello Sharon,
For many years I am a fan of Jane Austin novel pride and prejudice. The first time I became acquainted with it was in the BBC version with Colin Firth as Mr Darcy. Because I loved the story I ordered the novel and I have being reading it over and over. (It is in my language, Dutch, but I will order an English copy) When the picture of this novel came out I was a little septic about it. I thought by myself, who can ever compete with Colin as Mr Darcy. But this feeling went away very soon when I start looking at the film. Until that day I never knew Matthew Macfadyen, but he gave such a perfect picture of Mr Darcy, that I was even more sorry he did not do the BBC version of it!
I like his acting work and find it so pity that here in Belgium he is so unknowend, I can hardly find any films of him. I find 1 single copy of Death at a Funeral, and because I search on the internet I knew about Little Dorrit.
I am very happy to have found your website and that I read that there will be a sequel on Pride and Prejudice. I hope I can order it here in Belgium!!!
Greetings from Belgium Ils

Dear "Sis" ( As we always used to write years ago ),
I am sure you must be surprised to hear from me!! I have not read the book yet but I will write a real review when I do! I could simply find no other way to contact you but through this website. I could not see a regular e-mail.

I found you by doing a regular websearch and was I surprised to see everything that you have done. I am so very happy for you and pray for the best of success. What an exciting adventure you are on. Wow!

We moved to Israel about 8 years ago and life has taken quite a different turn for me. I am very joyful to be living here and I can tell you more when we can share a private e-mail chat. Better yet send me your phone number and I will call you! My e-mail is posted above so I really hope to hear from you. I love you and you always have a special place in my heart as you are my sister from years ago. Please forgive me for not staying in touch but I hope we can renew our friendship. πŸ™‚
Blessings,

Sharon,
Wow - I just finished Journeys Beyond Pemberley and am blown away by your amazing level of detail in this book. Besides continuing the wonderful story of William and Lizzy, the historical backdrop of the book is unbelievable - I actually felt like I could see all the places where the Darcys traveled. Though I love so many aspects of this book, I have to say that your filling in details about William after the failure of his first marriage proposal to Lizzy added even more depth to his point of view. I don't have enough words to say how beautiful your storytelling skills are and highly recommend this book. Fortunately for me, I already have The Darcy's at Year's End so I can start reading it tonight. Thank you again for another book that brings happy tears to my eyes ;D

Sharon,
I can hardly begin to tell you how much I love your books. They are well written and thoroughly researched. I greatly appreciate that you put so much time and effort in to making them historically accurate. Since I have a degree in history I greatly appreciate this and respect the time it took to do so. I love the way you write the story. The way you make the characters come alive is wonderful. I love the personalities that have developed beyond the book and the movie.
I am so excited that there is more to this story. I just wanted you to know that your work is greatly appreciated and that I am excited about the book in March and look forward to any others you publish. The website changes are great and I love the cover of the new book!
Thank you for keeping true romantics entertained and writing such a wonderful story. I have always loved Pride and Prejudice, must have been the name. πŸ™‚ I feel even more in love with it after the 2005 movie and then happened upon your website a year ago. I have now read all of the TSBO books that you self-published multiple times and truly love them.
Keep up the wonderful work!

I openly admit an obsession with TSBO and P&P. If I admit it does that make it healthy? πŸ˜‰

Hello again, Sharon!
I e-mailed you last year complaining that your sequels to Two Shall Become One was too slow in materializing. After reading over 100 P&P sequels by different authors, I definitely would say yours is the best. Finally my daughter told me that 2 new sequels of the Darcy Saga series are now available and I just ordered them through Amazon. I can hardly wait to receive them and to devour them, although I think I will read the first installment over again just as a refreshment for things to come. Thanks for sharing your beautiful talent with us readers! And please keep on writing!!

Dear Sharon...it was a fun day at work when I found out from a co-worker, and one of your biggest fans, about your sequel to Pride and Prejudice. I couldn't wait to read it! I was not disappointed and thoroughly enjoyed the direction you went with Lizzy and Darcy....a very romantic and intimate portrayal of married love. I look forward to following your books in the future.

Dear Sharon,
My name's Brigitte, I'm French and I'm a teacher .I'm married and have two sons, one is at college and the other at high school, just like you! we have a lot of similarities!as you will read below..
Five days ago I experienced what you did that week end of thanksgiving 2005.I saw Pride and Prejudice!And I must confess that I didn't leave the film unhurt.
Just like you I had never read the book nor seen any previous adaptation; Like you I had seen sense and sensibility and knew Jane Austen as a writer of classic novel from the 18th century, that's all...just heard about Pride and Prejudice..
And then it happened!I watched the movie and I loved it. I loved the directing, the acting, the characters and the beautiful houses and beautiful photography..the music and...I fell for Mr Darcy ! I can't explain ..I suppose it's not only because of Mr Darcy that I was so intensively touched by the movie .I am a huge romantic too but I saw other moving romantic films with handsome actors.. Wuthering heights (Fiennes), Jane Eyre(W.Hurt) ...which didn't put me head over heels (Is it the correct expression ?)
.but here it was different ..like you, he has bewitched me and since then I have read the novel , watched the film again and again and spent my time surfing the internet for info, watching montage videos on U tube, I even bought the BBC miniseries ! but here nothing happened, it fell flat, something..or someone was missing..so I realized it was not only mr Darcy.. who was responsible for my heart big sighs..but this actor who played Mr Darcy or the combination of both maybe!this is what is dangerous, the combination of both.I got it!
and ...I fell on your blog, I immediately read everything you wrote and ordered your book .I will have it in a few days and I'm looking forward to reading it especially as I understood that you are a fan of MacFadyen and I'm particularly interested in reading that sequel thinking that you had HIM in mind when writing which is maybe not the case for the other sequels already published.

I enjoyed your book very much. I have read several versions of what the life of the Darcy's would have been after marriage, and this was my favorite. Even though I felt the BBC version did a better job of staying true to not the characters of Elizabeth and Darcy and found the 2005 version enjoyable, if a little too Hollywood. I guess the only thing about your book that I didn't like was that you used the 2005 version, not the original story as more of a guide in writing your story. However, out of all the books I have read that have attempted to depict Elizabeth and Darcy after marriage, I think yours was the best written and most realistic.
May 13, 2008 | Georgette

Thank you for your wonderful, sweet book, Two Shall Become One. I absolutely love it and have read it so many times already, just as I have watched P&P with Matthew Macfadyen a million times. Like other fans, I have imagined Darcy and Elizabeth after their marriage and believe that their marriage must be perfect. I, for one, never want to read a book or imagine that Darcy is indifferent to Elizabeth for any reason. I look forward to your next book. Hurry!
May 3, 2008 | scout53

Hi Sharon!
Since the day I discovered Pride & Prejudice sequels, I just can't stop reading them... I read a lot of sequels and I have to admit that "Two shall become one" is my favorite of all! Your story is exactly how I was imagining there life; romantic, passionate and full of happiness. And I completely fall in love with the 2005 movie even more than with the BBC series. Matthew Macfadyen is THE perfect Darcy! So I enjoyed the fact that you based your story on the movie. And since my first language is french, well it made me practice my English. And now I have in mind to translate the novel in french(for my own use of course) as a hobby... Yeah I know I have nothing to do... hihi! But I can't help it, I'm an addict!
I can't wait for your sequels. Keep on the really good work!!

Truly wonderful !!! I have read your book 3 times in the last four weeks. You have drawn me in with the love and devotion these characters have for each other. I keep searching Amazon for the next book. I came across Austen Fan site today and found you and have seen all the amazing things you have posted. I am most excited and am hopeful your next two installments will be out before the end of the summer. Congratulations of so many things in you life. This site is awesome. Do keep it up and I look forward to hearing from you. It is an honor. Lisa Zechman, Texas

hello Sharon, I have recently discovered your wonderful book, although not recent enough, as i have missed all the new passage extracts. Although after backtracking some of the messages from your devoted fan base i have luckily been able to 'catch up'to a certain extent. i found your book quite similar to the Linda Berdoll adaptations, with the exception of differing characters. i am truly waiting in increased anticipation for publishing of the second and third volumes. i hope sourcebooks realize the true extent of your fan base so they can hurry up the process of distributing your work.
keep up the magnificent work. you truly sound like an amazing and intelligent woman.

Hello Sharon.
I too became obsessed with P&P after seeing the 2005 movie. I have read a couple of 'sequels' as well as the original text and watched the BBC series. I love them all! I purchased your book on Amazon and just finished it. I really enjoyed it and am glad to read that you will be continuing your series which I look forward to reading.
Thank-you.

Hi Sharon!
I've only just learnt about your wonderful site from newly made friends on one of the MM forums. I sat for hours yesterday evening gazing at the beautiful pics. Thank you so much - I will continue this evening.

I live in Sweden and this version of P&P was shown (as far as I know) on TV for the first time about 3 months ago. In fact they did show a lot of classical English films during a short period.

Like you I was totally unaware of what was about to hit me. Since then my life has changed quite radically and I hope to meet up with another forum friend on a P&P trip this Spring!

I will write more here when I have more time - suddenly I wish I were an insomniac so I could use all the hours of night as well for this new-found obsession.
Many thanks and bless you for this site!

Thank you Sharon for creating this website with all the infos and photos, I am still very much enjoying it.
I love the 2005 movie very much and most of all I'd like to leave a message to the great actor Matthew MacFadyen ~ Dear Mr Darcy, you've bewitched me body and soul...and I love.. I love.. I love you...

Hi my name is philippa and I come from cheltenham. I just finished reading the first novel and it was amazing. I really want to read the second volume but can't find it. Where can I buy it?
January 28, 2008 | philippa

All I can say is ditto for me on what all these people are saying in the posts. I sent you an email in addition to this to thank you for writing this fabulous book! I am too captured by the P&P bug. As well as all of Jane Austens books. Have the DVD and watched 2 scenes a night every night for probably 8 mos. It helps me sleep when I go to bed at night. I am nuts I know. I am single so that explains it I guess. Hoping for that Darcy one day. But thanks again for your fabulous novel! And for making Darcy and Elizabeth pure on their wedding night...with such wonderful storytelling I am sold. I have read the 2 Linda Berdoll sequels but they pale in comparison to yours. Thanks again!!
Love ya girl! Keep up the good work!
January 17, 2008 |Liz from Texas

Like you, saw the '05 movie before reading the book or the '95 TV version and share the same preferences! I like how you've developed the relationship between Lizzy and Darcy in the same style as the movie, beautiful in its subtlety and nuance. You've written Darcy's character to match perfectly Matthew Macfadyen's portrayal. It's especially gratifying to read how you've shown the couple to grow in their devotion to each other in all dimensions of their married life, after waiting and saving themselves for their wedding night. Sounds corny, but oh so beautiful, and isn't it what every woman secretly desires? The way it was meant to be: exclusive gift of one for the sake of the other. It's what I've told my college-bound daughter: settle for nothing less, and wait for your "Mr. Darcy!" Thank you for writing of the Darcy's passionate love for each other without exposing all of the intimately graphic details that would detract from the romance of their mutual discoveries. Well done!
December 27, 2007 | Millie

I cannot express how wonderful your writing is, first of all, and the story in general is simply beautiful. The language used to describe the daily happenings truly paints a magnificent portrait in the reader's mind... I'm in love!

I adore everything you've chosen to write about thus far, and will reread the story with the anticipation of the next update.

Thank you for sharing such an absolutely frickin' awesome talent with us.

After watching the movie and the BBC series I was curious to find out more about Elizabeth & Darcy, and I was Google to find anything about P&P. So I found your "Darcy Saga". I started to read the first chapters and I couldn't stop reading.


You are an incredibly gifted writer! While reading I have had the feeling to be involved in the story. Your writing is lively and full of power and I can immerse myself in the situation. Amazing portraying! As a writer myself I know the power of words. And you've done a great job! This is the best Elizabeth & Darcy ff I've ever read! Keep up the good work! Thanks!

I saw the DVD and was so moved that I couldn't stop dreaming about the characters. I felt empty at the thought of not knowing what happened next. I searched the web to find out more about the movie and found Darcy Saga. I am overjoyed! I am loving all the chapters. On a few occasions I have not at first agreed with something Darcy would say or do . . . something one of the other characters would say or do . . . BUT THEN you would give me more insight into the character and I would see that they would indeed handle themselves that way because they had grown or changed as a result of knowing Fitzwilliam and Elizabeth as a couple

I think Jane Austen would find this amazing...that her novel...has captured the imagination of a whole new generation of authors, fans and film makers. I enjoy the continuing saga....it allows me to dream of "Mr Darcy" in a whole new light!!

This is an incredible story you have going here!
I just devoted my day to reading every chapter -- I just couldn't stop, it's really that good. I can honestly say that this is the first P&P fanfic I have ever read, and I know I will be hard-pressed to find anything to even come close to this story's quality and depth. The character development, plot, imagery -- it's all spot-on. The love scenes are tastefully and realistically done. This story has made me love these characters more than I thought possible, and I simply cannot wait for the next installments!

So please, if you're ever feeling uninspired, or if you ever start to think that no one is reading, I'll be here waiting for more! Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Keep up the awesome work!

WOW! I love it! I've spent the last 3 days reading, and reading, and reading...I can't get enough!!! I'm going to flunk my exam! I'm supposed to be studying!!! I've watched P&P at least 20 times and since read the book another 10 but I need more! Sharon you are amazing, I love your style and character development. PLEASE keep going!! XOXOXOXOX
December 27, 2007 | Cindy in Canada

I absolutely love your story. It's so refreshing to actually read the continuation of the story and you're such a good writer. I especially like how you've fleshed out Darcy's character to match Matthew MacFadyen's Darcy--he was wonderful in P&P'05. All of the characters are well thought out and realistic. Please continue to write...
December 27, 2007 | PJ

wonderful site thank you....I was very ill recently and a friend gave me a copy of P&P DVD to watch while i was recuperating, was the best thing that ever happened to a nearly 60yo your site has made the journey even more interesting......Please do not stop what you are doing because you are bringing a lot of joy to a lot of people.....Thank you.......anna

Wonderful site, wonderful story, very well written!!! Sharon, your story is "The Best"!!
Congratulations, and thank you!!!
December 27, 2007 | Andreia Almeida in Brazil

You're doing an awesome job! You're so much better than any of the published authors I've been reading. Your sense of "time span" is just wonderful. Keep up the good work ... I'm addicted!!!

Who IS Sharon L. - I'll tell you. A modern, classic, literary marvel. The book was a wonder, the film was excellence, and this sequel - pure genius! Whoever you are Sharon, you are truly gifted! You take a beautiful, wonderful, intriguing story that is almost unsurpassable, to totally new heights....words cannot describe the joy I experienced when I found that you were continuing our beloved Elizabeth & Darcy's story. I'm entranced. Jane Austen must be looking down on you and smiling at the wonderful work you are doing. This needed to be done - the story HAD to continue. Ever Grateful - Kevin
December 27, 2007 |KevMaverick in UK

This is a wonderful book. Sharon, you write beautifully! I have read many published sequels to P& P, everything I can find, and this is just a superb version. It is so easy to relate to what Darcy and Elizabeth are feeling and how they are experiencing life together. You wove in the 2005 movie photos, descriptions and text so smoothly.
Thank you for contributing to all of us who are addicted to Pride and Prejudice!
December 27, 2007 | Erna

I am absolutely falling madly in love with this sequel! Never before have I read something so exquisite! You are doing a tremendous job with the aftermath of Miss Elizabeth Bennet Darcy and Mr Fitzwilliam Darcy's marriage. Keep up the good work!
December 27, 2007 | Stephanie

I have read the entire story thus far and will be waiting for more. Thank you for writing this for those of us who are hopeless Darcy and Lizzy fans. I enjoy losing myself in them
December 27, 2007 | Suzi

I love this story and am eagerly awaiting its continuation. I believe you have Darcy and Elizabeth well understood and developed, as well as other new characters. I have read other sequels (some even published ones), but they never seem to get the characters right-such as the suggested that Bingley would have an affair. Ugh! This story not only has excitement and drama, but well-developed and meaningful characters.

As far as I am concerned, this is what really happened to one of literature's greatest couples!
December 27, 2007 | Katie in Illinois

Congrats Sharon! I have been a longtime reader of this story and must commend you on your truly wonderful talent. As an author myself, I would be happy to help send more readers your way! Your story is one of the best sequels I have ever read.
December 27, 2007 | Marjorie

I have to write now to tell you that I've read your story "two shall become one" and it's very beautiful!! I love it. Continue writing please
December 25, 2007 | Emma

Hi!! I've already read your answer to the question I did you yesterday. Very thank you for your help! In the film I wanted to see the wedding, and when I saw this photos I thought that it was possible, but now I know it isn't =( Sadly we only have this photos to dream with that moment.
I've already known this site before you tell me about it in your email, but I was in the other site when I saw the wedding photo, and I ask you there about it for that.
Thanks for all your information!!
December 25, 2007 | Emma

Wow I just came to this site to look for pictures with Darcy and Elizabeth but I never imagined it would lead me to this! The P & P movie is one of my favorites and I always thought it ended wayyy to soon and I wanted an insight into how their relationship progressed and how life had changed for them...this really sparked my interest and I really want to read your book now!
December 14, 2007 | Christina

First let me say that I love the new website and, second let me say that I love the new book, and third let me say that I love you Sharon for bringing us the Darcy Saga! I cannot even remember when I found this site but I want to say it was when the chapters were in the teens or somewhere around there. Seems like ages ago....
December 8, 2007 | Annie in Baltimore

After watching 2005 movie, I saw BBC 1980 and 1995 TV version to compare. I dare say, Keira and Matthew perform the best Lizzy and Darcy. The screen play was also done the best - brief and touching. I can't help to watch this movie again and again till I memorize their faces and conversation in mind.

Sharon, thank you for building this website, especially "behind screen" section. Please keep it as long as you can. Once I think of Lizzy and Darcy, this is the place I will go to get refresh feeling of love.
Well done
December 8, 2007 | Sarah in Toronto

OMG. I am so glad to see you've gotten published!! I don't remember how, but I stumbled across your website about a year ago and started to read your Saga. It is so wonderful! I would also like to say thank you, for inspiring me to both read and write fan fiction. I had not even heard of the concept before I stumbled across your amazing work. πŸ™‚

Hi Katie,
Sorry to jump in before Sharon. But the book available is only the beginning, Sharon has many many more wonderful chapters that will make up new books. So there is plenty to look forward to. I for one am really excited about the release of more magic from Sharon. I'm sure you'll be just as thrilled with the continuing "Saga". Happy reading.

A birthday Poem for you my love,
your Mr Darcy.

The words we often search for
Are like the colors we cannot paint
The beauty never captured
The words slowly falling faint

In the presence of the feelings
They struggle to convey
Left holding poems and pictures
Wondering what they say

If we follow where they lead
We my touch what brought them on
And remember the beauty
As we listen to their song

In following words like love and beauty
I am led to you
Where they are mere reflections
Of the real and the true

October 19, 2007 | Your Mr Darcy

Hi Sharon,
A little birdie told me you have a birthday coming up this month (October 26th?). Let me be among the first to wish you a HAPPY BIRTHDAY. I'm not sure how to start my own thread so I hope everyone who loves you and your work will chime in with their own best wishes.

I loved the novel snippet you added for us to read. And, our lovely Darcy - he wouldn't ever think to cheat on his beloved Lizzie....especially after their lovely romp on the beach. Heavenly.

As a major fan of the 2005 version of P & P, I was thrilled to discover your website. I am dying to read the rest of your book! Thanks for continuing the story of this great romantic couple and I hope it will be available soon!

the website is wonderful and very easy to follow. im hoping soon to get your novel. looking forward to reading it. i knew you were a wonderful writer the minute i started to read your chapters when they were on the old site. you have done a great job and should be very proud of yourself i know i am! keep up the great work! nanalean
October 4, 2007 | nanalean

Sharon, I have really enjoyed your website and am completely taken with your work.
Starting in May of 2007, I decided to embark on a bit of a girl-author-power series, beginning with Jane Austin's Pride & Prejudice. Well, instead of sticking with Austen's work, I've explored another tangent that I hadn't anticipated. As of September 1, I have read 18 P&P continuations...an entire genre of work that I didn't even know existed until accidentally coming across the first.

Your book, which I found on and purchased from Amazon.com, is by far my favorite! I'm enamored with how you've so thoroughly developed Darcy and Elizabeth, and how you're enriching their story by evolving the characters of their family members and friends. Your story has taken on a life of its own and I sense that it's becoming a true epic about an amazing group of people with our favorites, Darcy and Elizabeth, at its center.

I eagerly await your next book, and am so excited for your success! Thank you for sharing this special talent with all of us! Kaycie

Hi Sharon been lurking around the website for sometime and just found this page and wow what a wonderful web site I think this great.
September 15, 2007 | Jane

Hi Sharon!
I just finished reading the final chapters of your Darcy Saga. I have enjoyed reading all the chapters immensely.
Your story was well told and full of interesting facts and events. You carried on their lives most eloquently and with the ending as we would hope.
I do hope you eventually can continue on with some of the story lines. It would be interesting to see how some of the lives turn out.
I shall miss reading your words. I made time everyday to read at least one or two chapters. Now, alas, I shall have to wait to read the final printing until the book is published. Believe me, I will read the book again just to see how it turned out.
Thank you again for all the time and effort you put into this to enrich our lives.
Take care and God Bless.
September 7, 2007 | Esther Ann

Beautiful, and well done. Should I expect less from the writer, yes writer, who had me glued to my computer awaiting the next chapter? I, however, am becoming rather impatient on the publishing. I am sending a cyber-nudge to get things moving. Thank you for finding and sharing what you love with all of the hopeless romantics of the world.

Hi, Sharon!
Love the new website! You did a fantastic job. I enjoy browsing and reading all the fun stuff you posted here as well as all the other fun links. They are easier and fun to navigate. Also, it's nice to see that you posted a picture of yours. You look very pretty and I enjoyed reading your biography. Keep up the great work. Looking forward to more updates!

P.S. I already finished reading "Two Shall Become One" and I loved and enjoyed reading it. Can't wait for the next volume and for the rest of the sage to continue to be published and released soon!

Just wanted to say that I love your new website, it looks great! I especially like the photo album, so easy to go through all the pictures now! Congratulations and best wishes! Julie
August 28, 2007 | Julie

Hi little sis,
Great site! Lot's of cool stuff. I'm so proud of you and still stunned at how it's all going. Love the picture, you look great. Course, I might point out that her slightly older sister passed on some of her great looks, I guess you could say I paved the way! LOL. Yes, we Hudson/Underwood clan have always been great beauties (said with heavy sarcasm). We have pretty much all been able to write a bit, but Sharon has far exceeded all our expectations. I am mostly thrilled that she was finally noticed by a publisher because I was getting ready to go kick some butt if these people kept upsetting my little sis! Having read all her stuff I knew she was a wonderful writer and it was just so annoying that someone else wasn't getting it also! But now they are and I'm so happy for you sis. Love you, Jani

Oh, I forgot to add something to my post. You are SO PRETTY. Thanks for adding a photo of yourself.
August 28, 2007 | Rosanna

Sharon,
I love your new website - it looks amazing. Thank you for including all of the wonderful photos. As I read your novel, I can go back to look at the photos for a "richer" experience. I will keep bouncing back and forth between the two websites for however long the original remains online.
I am truly addicted.
August 28, 2007 | Rosanna

Sharon,
I just finished your book yesterday - it was wonderful! You really captured the essence of the 2005 version of P&P - this was a fantastic sequel! I look forward to volume 2 and posted a review on Barnesandnoble.com and Amazon.com. Thank you for writing this book!

THANK YOU THANK YOU for giving me my FAVORITE love story back! Similar to you, I fell in love with Keira Knightly and Matthew McFayden's representation of the story, and have been wanting more ever since.

I am a huge fan of your Darcy Saga. I have never read a fiction like this in my life. You are gifted with the ability to make the reader feel and live with the characters. I have bought all the 5 books of the saga and all are exceptionally good. The way you have presented the saga is not presented by any of you contemporaries. I want to request you that please don't stop writing the saga as I want to see how the life of Lizzy and Darcy proceed in the coming years. It would be depressing if you stop. Please start writing the next part and release it as soon as possible. I, sorry we all who are fans of the saga are waiting for your next novel in the saga.

Hi Sharon
Greetings from still sunny Sydney Australia
Got my copy just after midnight, took me longer to read as I had two ereaders running to keep track of everyone,
I remind all who read on ebook to draw a tree (from your great list at the start) so to keep track of all the characters and children, such an amazing array of old and new people to meet.
Just finished ' The Trouble with Mr D' what a mind blower with some nice loose ends neatly tied in a bow. Could not spoil it for anyone.

Now the big wait for the next book - will spend my time rereading all of the current books, fevered expectation of the next
April 4, 2011 | Christine

Thank you for writing such an amazing series. I understand the need to take a break from the stories but I do hope it will not be permanent. I have always loved the character of Mr. Darcy and you have truly made him almost real flesh and blood. I am saving my books for when my daughter is old enough to understand what a gentleman is and how a lady should be treated. We live in a modern and liberated age but some of the old world practices are not so bad. God Bless and continued success.

Hi again, I pre-odered the fifth book and received it a week ago since then I've read it twice. It is a great book so much happening, so much drama and action. I really, really enjoy it. I hope that you will write more books. For those who read "A Darcy Christmas" know a little bit about the future so I really believe that you will not leave us wondering about that. I look forward to the news about a new book. Thank you again for this one. See you soon.

Thank you so much for writing these six novels. I began to read your books when I saw the first one at Target a couple of years ago. I loved them and now preorder them from Amazon. I just finished the fifth one in three days. I will go back and read it a second time but not as fast. I hope this is not the last one. Thank you for writing this series. Nicole

Hi Sharon
Your books are the best. It has never took me more then a week to finish reading one. I just can't seem to put them down once I get one in my hands. When I read volume 1 I was in love and went searching for you on the internet. It made my day when I found out there were more to come. I find myself jumping out of my seat wating for volume 5, I just hope it's not the end.

greeting again from sunny Sydney Australia (yes its is still summer) Thank you Thank you Thank You The Trouble with Mr Darcy has finally been made available for me to download on my ebook site - I am so excited will be able to read it in 25 days what a joy. The only problems for all us fans is - of course - the next installment - you are just going to have to start writing faster. Its so exciting and I can hardly wait. You are a true joy and it is so nice to read books that are relaxing and happy with the touch of drama to make them exciting. I wish you joy, happiness and success and to all those out there who think that Jane Austin is boring - you don't even have to like Pride and Predudice - just sit back - read - and enjoy the fun and drama

I am a huge Jane Austen fan and Pride and Prejudice happens to be my personal favorite out of all her novels. When I saw the 2005 film version with Keira Knightly and Matthew Macfadyen, I became even more obsessed with Elizabeth Bennet and William Darcy. The only thing that was missing was what happened to the couple after they got married. Well, I was shopping at a Target store in Michigan while on vacation and I just happened to stumble upon the book entitled Mr. and Mrs. Fitzwilliam Darcy: Two Shall Become One. It sounded so interesting, but unfortunately I am a tight wad and wasn't sure if this would book would stay true to the characters and the writing style of Jane Austen. After a couple of weeks I just couldn't take it anymore. I bought the book at Target and was hooked after the first page. I just couldn't put it down and read it within a couple of days. Sharon Lathan, You are a Genius. You stayed true to the original story and made it your own. The relationship between Elizabeth and William is so beautiful because they are a couple who are truly in love and are not afraid to express their love for one another. Some people would say that the book is all about the marital relations between the couple, but it is so much more than that. If you are a true Pride and Prejudice fan you would know from the beginning that Elizabeth and Darcy are complete opposites, but they both provide to each other what the other needs. After they are married, they quickly discover that their love for one another is much deeper and that they cannot imagine living without the other even if they are separated for a day. Truly, I recommend this book and the sequels to anyone who enjoys Jane Austen. Sharon Lathan has brilliantly continued the famous love story in a way that no one else has been able to do. I"m actually re-reading the books over again and I'm falling in love with them all over again. Thank you Sharon for continuing one of my favorite books ever written.

I loved the movie just as you did, in fact i have watched it so many times I know it word for word. When I found your first book while looking for new reading material, I said hey I will give it a try. being an avid reader I had already read P&P. I started to read it on a Saturday, my weekend off that only comes once a month for me. Anyway I found myself back in the bookstore Sunday, because I read volume 1 in a day. Then I picked up volume 2, and 3, that was in November. My birthday being in December I was gifted volume 4, and Darcy Christmas. I am now waiting patiently for the next one in April. In the meantime I will reread the others, I am totally addicted to your books. You write so beautifully, and what you have done with the storyline is wonderful. Keep up the good work, I look forward to reading more from the saga for years to come.
January 28, 2011 | Michele

I just want to say, I love your books! I'm always wary of sequels by other authors, or just imitations in general, but this addition to Austen's work, I think, would get even her approval! Well done! You did what I've been wishing I had the talent (and the time!) to do. It's just a lovely continuation to a lovely story. I also have to say, as an Austen movie adaptation geek, my personal favorite depiction is the 2005 movie. I'm a huge Collin Firth fan, but the most recent blows that one out of the water. Thank you!!!

I would just love to say how much I enjoyed the first book. I found the book at my local library and saw the other books there too. However, I decided to try the first one out only. I am so heartbroken that it has ended, yet I know there are more to read! It is bittersweet. I can always judge how good a book is by how I feel after I read it, and the best ones always make me sad because their finished. I can't wait to see Darcy and Elizabeth's love continue!
January 23, 2011 | Nico

I am devoted Austen fan and adore Pride and Prejudice. Thank you for continuing the Darcy romance! I ponder what will happen to Lizzy and Mr. Darcy and am happy that they are deeply in love and witty as ever. Can't wait to read more!

Thank you so much for continuing P&P. I started reading these through my library, but they only had the first two books of the series, so I had to purchase the other two. I can't wait until April for your next book. Now I need to buy the first two so I can read all four over again! I love the passion between Darcy and Lizzy, not just in their loving, but also in their disagreeing. I catch myself going back rereading passages that touch me. It's a great reminder to us just what a healthy relationship should consist of: honesty and understanding. Andrea - Syracuse, NY

Hi there!
I am a teenager and I must say, I LOVE these books! It was a bit of a random choice of me picking the first of the saga at a bookstore. I was rummaging through the shelves and I told my father, "Just pick one that looks interesting and is based on Pride and Prejudice." 10 seconds later, I had Mr. & Mrs. Fitzwilliam Darcy in my hands! Let me tell you, I read that book in the shortest amount of time simply because I just couldn't put it down! Please visit us sometime in southern or central North Carolina! We would love to meet you! Also, your books inspired me to start my career/hobby in writing romance novels. I sincerely feel as if I am in the story with Georgiana, Lizzy, and Darcy! Can't wait to read the new one coming out in April! I look forward to it!

I am from Pennsylvania, just a teenager, but absolutely devoted to your books. I have absolutely fallen in love with these books. I have them all and cannot wait until your next release! I fell in love with the story of Pride and Prejudice when I saw the same movie as you just last year, Sharon. I love Mathew MacFadyen now. The movie was perfect, it showed the epic romance increasing with love, hate, pride, and prejudice. Even if I am just a teenager myself, I know a good book when I read one. I honestly think because of you, I fell in love Mr. Darcy as much as any other teen girl would love some pop star. I think you are a wonderful author, and you express the love life, challenges, humor, and family duties with grace and elegance... I feel like I am in the 1800s when I read your beautiful novels.

It is a great inspiration to me, you should never stop writing the continuations, you should write until Darcy and Lizzy are eighty years old and Alexander and their expected children to come are grown with families of their own. These stories are addictive, and I absolutely love it! The detail you use and the emotions you can fill the page with is incredible. You have a true talent, when I read your books it is like I am standing in the rooms watching and listening to the story unfold. I don't even need pictures to imagine what you are saying, the images pop into my head as though I honestly am standing right there. I just cannot get over your beautiful work; the words you use are very precise. You truly do have an amazing talent; I cannot say how happy I am to have found your books!

I saw the movie and read the original novel by Jane Austen. I just kept falling deeper and deeper in love with the stories, I went searching for sequels and continuations and praise the Lord I found your books! I got them immediately, and I swear I could read them over and over again for the rest of my life, just like I could watch the movie every night.

My friends act like it is weird reading these books because they are so different and strange, with such big words and romantic stuff in them. I completely disagree, if I could, I'd tell everyone about your books. They deserve to be spread all over the world. To me you are like another Jane Austen, you're dialog and characters are very much like hers to me... I love it. Love, love, love it! Keep writing, because you have inspired me to write novels of my own. My books are three to five hundred pages long because I have learned from your perfect mastery. I want to say thank you for writing, it has been a true pleasure and honor to read your books. I am devoted to Darcy for life now, thanks to your wonderful skill. You are my inspiration, and I look up to you and hope maybe someday my novels will be as great as yours... but I am very doubtful I could even come close to your expertise. I only wish I could meet you and talk about your books and thoughts. I know that will never happen, but I still believe that you are my inspiration and hero. Thank you so much, you have touched me deeply and I will someday tell my kids about your wonderful books so your skill and amazing novels will live on forever.

Hello Sharon,
Happy New Year to you and your family! I just wanted to take the time to say "Thank-you" for the Darcy Saga Books. I fell upon them quite accidentally and I fell in love instantly. I do not proclaim to be a romantic but these books were just what I needed over the last couple of months. I am reading the fourth one now - In the Arms of Mr. Darcy and I do not think I can wait until April until the new one comes out. I love your style, the story itself and I feel as though William and Elizabeth are my friends. Their whole world is so different from mine but love is love no matter where one lives and what time we live in. Thank-you once again for your books! I wish you continued success in all of your future endeavors.

Hello Sharon,
Well, first and foremost, I must thank you wholeheartedly for your wonderful books. I am awaiting the arrival of A Darcy Christmas, which will hopefully arrive in a few days. I am also waiting (quite impatiently, I might add) for the release of The Trouble with Mr Darcy this year.
Thank you once again,
Samantha

Happy New Year Sharon,
Just twelve and a half hours to go and 2011 will be ushered in. May God truly bless you and yours during the new year and beyond. I most emphatically agree with Mary, the commenter before me; I've often wondered if Keira and Matthew had a chance to read your books, WOW!!!!! I think ticket sales to the theatre and later DVD sales would sky rocket. I have stated this more than once; Sharon there is a whole new industry where you could exercise some influence over and you and your family would love to go to England, right.

Today is my 62nd birthday and I can't think of nicer people to share it with than those who love P*P.
God Bless,

I, too, am new to your Darcy series and thrilled to have stumbled upon them. Your stories exactly suit, in my mind, where the book and movies left off, mostly particularly the 2005 P&P. I love the intellectual, emotional, and physical intimacy you created between Elizabeth and Darcy. It so captures the intensity of their attraction and depth of their characters, as Jane Austen wrote. Equally you continue Jane Austen's independent woman ahead of her time. Well done! Equally well done is your research into the Regency period and day-to-day life, for one feels delightfully transported there.

Has there been any dialogue between you and Keira and Matthew? Do they know about the series, for it would be wonderful if it piqued their interest in a sequel. Lawd have mercy, could we 2005 P&P fans stand it!

Hi Sharon
Greeting from sunny Sydney - just received your excerpt today, I want one, I want a copy to read and literally can't wait, but I have gone to all my ebook suppliers and to no avail - I can't believe it. Will it be available in ebook form as was your last books? It was soo exciting pre-ordering it and having it one minute after midnight to read it the same day instead of waiting for it to be shipped from overseas. I loved your bravery of having them available on ebook for everyone to read, please say it will be the same this time, so I can start harassing the book suppliers
Have a great Christmas and New Year - Kiki

I just pre-ordered The Trouble with Mr .Darcy !! Can't wait for April 1st!!! I enjoy the beautiful stack of all your books on my nightstand πŸ™‚
December 22, 2010 | Ingrid Anderson

I can not thank you enough for writing these books. I too saw the movie first and then read P&P. I love the story and never want it to end. Please keep writing these amazing books. I come home everyday after work and read one of our novels after the kids are in bed. Its my "me" time. Cant wait for your April!

I am a new Pride and Prejudice fan and like most did not want the story to end. I picked up the first book in this series a couple of weeks back to take on a vacation to Mexico with me. Let me just say I could not put it down the whole week! I have recently purchased the rest of the series and am on pins and needles for them to arrive in the mail. Well done Sharon, keep them coming!
December 8, 2010 | Megan

I have never been more lost in a book than Pride and Prejudice. I read it many times because I didn't want that story to end. You made it continue with passion and love:) Thank you so much!
December 2, 2010 | UMichelle

I discovered your series about two weeks ago through my public library. They only have the first two volumes, so I am having to purchase the rest of the series! I don't know if I can wait the week it will take to ship the books to me!! One of the best Darcy series I've ever read. Thanks so much for all the joy!

Your newest fan,
Tiffany

I discovered your books about 2 months ago after renewing my passion for P&P. I love love love what you have done with them and hope you continue to write many more novels in this saga. I simply cannot get enough!

Love love love your books, I just finished reading In the Arms of Mr. Darcy and I can't wait for the next volume in this saga. GOD Bless and keep up the good work.

Sharon.
I adore your Darcy Saga books! I discovered the first couple last year when I was browsing the bookstore and fell in love with them. I have been a fan of P&P since I read the book back in high school and saw the 2005 version. Your books just make me love the story even more! I'm very excited for any future books.

Hi Sharon,
My name is Lauren I am 21 years old residing in Jacksonville, Florida. I came across your books while browsing my local bookstore (as well as Mr. Darcy's Diary by Amanda Grange), so I figured I would give it a shot because I read the original P&P in high school and adored the 2005 movie version (which at the time was the only I had seen). Well I accidentally purchased the second book in the saga so for my birthday my dad bought the rest of the saga so I could start from the beginning and continue on since it's becoming apparent that I am obsessed. It's taking me a bit longer than I would like to finish them but I think my husband gets jealous sometimes of my apparent feelings for Mr. & Mrs. Darcy (or maybe just my obsession with Mr. Darcy). I just wanted to say that even though I am no critic and do not posses the Austen knowledge that some do, I think what you have done is brilliant. It's beautiful, and it has sparked so many emotions and appreciations for romantic sentiments in myself. I truly wish that these books could go on for eternity. Thank you so much for writing these books that too often feel like they were written just for me!

Hi Sharon,
I finally received my books on the 20th of October and finished the three novellas on the 21st. I have always pictured your Darcy and Lizzy (and all other characters) from the 2005 film without hesitation. The other stories from Amanda Grange and Carolyn Eberhart are definitely based on the 1995 characters from the BBC production. The sound of the characters, especially Mrs. Bennet, is very different as are the subtly nuances in how Darcy relates to Lizzy.

I loved this book. It made me laugh, think about my own Christmas memories, the loss of loved ones and how I grieve as well as all the funny things that seem to happen when you allow life to be. I also cried. The last page truly spoke volumes. Nine years ago I had a house fire and it destroyed all my keepsakes of my babies and those made especially for me by my mom. I am glad that you write " life" into you characters; it makes Darcy and Lizzy come alive.

Thank you so much for sharing your gift. Many God Blessings.
Christa

Sharon,
I absolutely love these books! I have read all of them now, just finished A Darcy Christmas today. I will now live in a state of anxiousness and anticipation for your next book to come out in April 2011! The months cannot go fast enough! Thank you so much for your wonderful writing.

HI Sharon - Greeting from Sydney Australia
How glad I am that you write about they Darcys. I was so happy to get In The Arms of Mr Darcy and A Darcy Christmas.
I was impressed that you had them in ebook form and more impressed that you had them available to your overseas readers. As a result I had them on pre-order and received them at one minute after midnight on the day of release.
Needless to say they were read that day and I must go back to the beginning again waiting for the next installment.
So many authors forget us, here in Australia, we are actually great readers of quality material, even encouraging children to read with book based readathons to expand their love of the written word.
My friends all fight over my paperback versions as they are not sold here.
Love your characters although in this episode they seemed a little hurried or maybe its just me. The Christmas stories of the other two authors were lost on me but saving you to last was a masterstike. Was it your way of tying up the Darcys just in case - it was clever, if a little brief
I Love your work - keep writing about the Darcys, including Georgie and especially Richard
Best Wishes from Australia Kiki

Hi Sharon,
I was so excited as October neared, knowing that your latest book would be released. Luckily I waited to rush out and get it because my husband bought me a Kindle for my birthday. I was so excited to find your book in a Kindle version! I downloaded it, and within seconds began reading again of Darcy, Elizabeth and the entire family. I have been in love with the stories since I picked up the first book last year. Thank you so much!
October 18, 2010 | Rebecca

I love your books! I found out about them from a friend who knows I am obsessed w/Pride and Prejudice! I love Elizabeth and William! I hope I can find someone like him to complete my happiness one day as I am still looking. I have had a couple of college beaus and a few since college, but your books give me hope
October 16, 2010 | mlw

Good evening Sharon,
I have been waiting so patiently for October 1 to come so that I, like many, many others, could go and pick up my order of your two latest books. I know that here, in the middle of Canada, mail and deliveries can move slow, but this is getting a little bit ridiculous; I still have not received my order; mind you, no one else has either. I am happy that all of you who are reading In the Arms of Mr. Darcy and A Darcy Christmas are enjoying it, I just with I was one of you. I told my friend's daughter about your books and she can hardly wait to borrow mine. I know she will fall in love over and over again; just like the rest of us.
Still waiting,
Christa/Regina

I am in love with your book series! I carry it around on my ipad all day to read whenever I have a free moment! I want the new book to be uploaded to the Apple book store!!
October 10, 2010 | Stephanie

I just finished reading a Darcy Christmas. I enjoyed your story so much. I laughed and cried. I'm sure Jane Austen herself would have loved seeing how her beloved Lizzy and Darcy coped with married live, your books are great I'm always so excited when you come out with a new book I go back and read the older books so I'm all ready for your new book. I have in the arms of Mr. Darcy and will start it later today. Do you have any plans for your books to go audio. I'm disabled and crochet and knit a lot so I'm always hoping my favorite author will have their books transferred to audio as well as written. Again I love all your books. Please keep writing about Lizzy and Darcy. Thank you sooooo much
