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 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!
December 27, 2007 | Ashley

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

Love this story, please do not stop!!
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!!!
December 27, 2007 | Jeannie

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. 🙂

Hi Sharon:
Hope all is going well with the book sales, etc. Will check in a little more regularly from now on!

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!
October 9, 2007 | Kim Saltsman

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

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 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, 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!

I could of sworn that I had already left a message here but no matter I shall do it again! I LOOOOVE this new website! It is so easy to navigate through! And I love the new layout! thanks for all your hard work Sharon!

Hi Sharon!
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
August 28, 2007 | Janis

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

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

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 and Thank you for writing this book!
August 27, 2007 | DiAnn

I love this new website! Simple, affective! You must be so website...published books... and more fans all the time I expect! It's all coming together for you. Can't WAIT until your books are available on the shelves! Your enthusiasm and hard work has really payed off!
August 27, 2007 | Kate

Sharon, I absolutely love this new website. I must admit, it will be sad to lose the Darcy Saga, but we have your superb writing to look forward to!
August 26, 2007 | D.Poses

Hi Sharon,
Congratulations on the new website, you have done a marvelous job. It is all coming together brilliantly. I love checking it each day for new tidbits and comments and very informative news.

Your enthusiasm is a joy to be part of. Love and best wishes for continuing success.

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,

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.
April 3, 2011 | Kendra

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.
March 24, 2011 | Ala Scerbina

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
March 19, 2011 | 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.
March 15, 2011 | Jessica Virgen

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 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.

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,
January 2, 2011 | 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 🙂
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!
December 12, 2010 | Lisa

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!
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,
December 1, 2010 | 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!
November 23, 2010 | Lexie

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.
November 21, 2010 | Caroline S.

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.
October 23, 2010 | Christa Buchan, Regina, Sask.

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,
October 10, 2010 | Christa Buchan, Regina, Sask.

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

In The Arms of Mr. Darcy just arrived yesterday. I'm not a fast reader, but I'm half through it!
Sharon never disappoints!!
October 10, 2010 | Constance

Finishing In the Arms of Mr. Darcy probably today....thrilled to see book 5 coming in April! You keep writing, I'll keep reading! My only request would be that you write faster!

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!
October 8, 2010 | Joanne
