Lovely  My Dearest Mr. Darcy continues the journey between Mr. Darcy and his new bride Mrs. Elizabeth Darcy. Sharon Lathan allows us to see and feel how utterly blissful everlasting love truly can be as she continues her loving story of this famous couple. The respect for my favorite two characters is wonderful. She has brought to life my vision of ever after for Darcy and Elizabeth in such a way that is nothing short of addicting! I have read all her books more than once as I wait on pins and needles for the next to be released. If you enjoy novels that are beaming with romance, love, respect, happiness and joy then I highly recommend this series to you. Sharon delivers in every way! Thank you Sharon for making me apart of this wonderful union and believing that true love is real!

 

Amazing!  I am in love with these books! I stumbled upon the 1st book at Target one day. After I finished the first book I found myself sad that there wasn’t a second book. A few weeks later I found out that there was another one! By the time I finished that book I found out about the website and ANOTHER book was coming out in January 2010. I literally counted down the days till I could get my hands on it! She is a wonderful writer and everything you could dream of for the Darcy family is in Sharon’s books. I was so sad after the first night I received my third book because before I knew it I had already read so much of it. You just can’t put it down! I am looking forward to October 2010 when the next book comes out! If you liked Pride and Prejudice at all you MUST READ THIS SERIES!!!!

 

The epitome of true love   Another masterpiece in the Darcy Saga. What makes this book whole is that it goes outside of the bedroom and into the real world with real life situations. We always expect everything to be perfect with Darcy and Lizzy, however we get a taste of conflict, anxiety, and sometimes a little pain. It seems more like a life journey which makes their marriage more meaningful and filled with true love.

Mr. Darcy has definitely maintained his level of pride but has also softened under Lizzy’s loving touch. I enjoyed his continued anxiety over Lizzy’s well-being (which irritated her), and his eager interest in becoming a father. Lizzy has grown in her role as Mistress, but maintains her true essence of being the smart, witty and clever Lizzy that we all love.

I enjoyed the historical parts of the book. Both in and out of college I’ve always taken an interest in British history and its brilliantly weaved into the book. We fall in love with the Darcy’s but also learn about England and are able to see the Era that they lived in.

Besides Mr. Darcy, I think we have a new character to fall in love with and its his uncle Dr. Darcy. When reading each page about the lovable doctor, he’s obviously very handsome, funny, intelligent and great to be around. But above all, its touching to see the relationship between the two men evolve into almost a father/son relationship.

 

A truly wonderful sequel! Now everyone is able to read the third book written by Sharon Lathan. And again it is a marvelous book! In this one Lizzy and Darcy travel to the sea, enjoy their time there with sightseeing, bathing, a Magic Lantern and so much more. It is both, entertaining and interesting to read. One can learn a lot about the daily life back in 1817. One of the best chapters is the one, where Elizabeth and Fitzwilliam renew their wedding vows in the chapel of Pemberley. And most important, the Darcys are awaiting the birth of their first child.

I love Sharon Lathan’s books, because she really knows how to write a good novel, she is giving all the characters of the book a real life, you can feel and laugh with them and most important: she is creating an amazing life for the Darcys,full of love and trust and surrounded by family and friends. I can’t get enough of it!

 

Wonderful! I enjoyed this third book of the series so much! I feel that Ms. Lathan’s books are true to the spirit of Jane Austin and give satisfying conclusions to the many situations and personalities in Pride and Prejudice. These books are enjoyable because the love and commitment between Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth is beautifully expressed and all three books in the series are amazingly romantic. Keep on writing more, please!

 

A Baby is Born!  The third installment by Sharon Lathan is just as good as her first two – perhaps even better, as the heir to Pemberley is born! Elizabeth and Darcy’s love is still the main focus, but it is lovely to read and is laced with wit!  Dr George Darcy takes a much more senior role in the book also – I love the character and his background! More please, Ms Lathan, of him!!

 

I love this series.  Not only does it continue and share the deepening love story of Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth but it also utilizes the characters and story originally created by Jane Austen. What I loved most about this particular book is that it focuses on their first child and I can easily imagine Mr. Darcy being a loving and supportive Dad and Elizabeth becoming a wonderful mother. I loved the new addition of Darcy’s Uncle George to the story and how unexpected minor characters are finding love (aka Mary and Anne). Good book overall and I cannot wait to read the next book.

 

The chapter where Lizzy gave birth was so well written!! I felt the excitement as she went into labour, I felt Darcy’s distress at seeing his wife in pain, I felt the impatience as the day progressed, I felt comforted by Dr Darcy’s presence, I loved how Jane and Darcy were there for Lizzy through it all, I felt her pain, I was on the edge of my seat in the final stages, I felt the overwhelming love and joy Darcy & Lizzy felt as their baby arrived, I felt Lizzy’s exhaustion. I just LOVED all the DETAIL! I was there! Just brilliant!! Bravo Sharon!!

 

A good read! This is the book that all Pride & Prejudice fans need to continue to look at the lives of our beloved characters of Mr & Mrs Fitzwilliam Darcy and their family. I wanted more and Sharon Lathan provide the insight.

 

More, please! The first part of My Dearest Mr. Darcy is told from the perspective of the inimitable Dr. George Darcy. He is a welcome addition to Austen’s cast of characters. Dr. George is Fitzwilliam Darcy’s uncle on his father’s side.  The book shifts away from his perspective and is a well told tale of the happiness of the married Darcys. I could do with a lot less of them falling into each others’ arms for hot sex, because the rest of the tale is told in language so beautiful it is lyrical.

 

Very vivid and romantic. The Darcy Saga is something more than I had expected. Sharon Lathan can always makes it very vivid. Sometimes I can picture it in my mind, it seems that I am not just reading it but seeing it! And it is extremely romantic, Darcy is way too good and thoughtful. I believe all would enjoy it as much as I do :)

 

The Best of the Series  I think I have enjoyed this book the most in the series. There is more humor and the story is well developed and interesting. The story continues with the Darcy and Elizabeth expecting their first child. The lovers’ travels through the Lakes is enchanting. I loved Elizabeth’s possessiveness and protection of her husband when a gold digger steps in to threaten their relationship. In this novel, Dr. Darcy and William’s relationship is more firmly cemented and established. The scenes with William and George are heartwarming. I also enjoyed the way Lathan interweaves the romances of other characters into her main story line. Well done, again!

 

Absolute Favorite!!!   As I turned the pages of this novel, Sharon turned on the movie screen in my head. Incredible detail, amazing character analysis. The beauty of this novel is amazing and I fell instantly in love with it. I read this novel in a few short hours. I could not put it down. This was another book that kept me up until 3 AM, but I had to read it. It got it the day it came out, which was horrible because then I had to wait a really long time for the next. If you have not read any of this series you are completely missing out. Sharon is amazing and I am so thankful for each of these stories.

 

Love this book!!!  Sharon Lathan writes the Darcys perfect! They are how I imagine them living happily ever after. There is romance, love, family and of course a little drama! I look forward to when her new one books come out and can’t wait to get my hands on them! I recommend her books to everyone!! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE her!

 

You’ll love it if you love P&P  Sharon Lathan is a great author, and this series is a lot of fun to read. If you enjoy P&P you will love this. It really feels like what would have happened if P&P had been continued, with no damage done to the characters that we love so much. One of my favorite series. Period.

 

One of the Best Books I Have Read  I absolutely love this book! I have the first three and cannot wait to get the newest. The characters are just what Mr. and Mrs. Darcy should be. I can tell that they are in love and that is what I want for them. The story line is wonderful and I couldn’t put it down because I was hooked. I hope Sharon Lathan keeps writing these amazing books!!!!

 

I ABSOLUTELY LOVE this book!   I just bought it a couple days ago. In three sittings, I finished it last night. Breathtaking! I’m going to re-read it while I anxiously wait for the second & third volumes to be delivered. Like the author, after watching ‘Pride and Prejudice‘ with Keira Knightley and Matthew Macfadyen, I wanted more of Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth. Sharon did a fabulous job! THANK YOU so much!

 

My Dearest Mr. Darcy  Sharon Lathan does an excellent job on this book, as well as the other two in the trilogy. She shows the love, admiration, respect and consideration that these two lovers have for each other in spite of a rocky courtship. This is the kind of story that holds my interest and I didn’t want to put it down. It is absolutely more than a feel good book.  I just wish it could go on forever.

 

LOVING THESE! I am a big reader, I usually finish a good book in a couple days. With this series I found my self dragging them out and reading other things in between because I did not want to finish them. I hate interruptions while I am reading and needless to say SOOO MUCH MORE while reading these. I loved this one, because the love shines though it all.

 

Your Mr. Darcy fantasies will be fulfilled!  If you ever wondered what the passionate love life of Mr. and Mrs. Fitzwilliam Darcy might have been like, then this book will fill in your imagination with swoon-worthy gallantry, frequent passages of passionate love, and the undying love they professed to each other grows with each day of their marriage. As a reader the love they feel for one another is almost palpable and you have a continued sense their devotion is profound. A very satisfying read. I couldn’t put it down until I had absorbed every word! Ms. Lathan’s writing continues the saga of the famous Austen couple without any disappointments! When you are done reading you will let out the breath you didn’t even realize you had been holding!

 

Continued Love story worth reading  I love this author. She has created the characters just like you have imagined them all these years – only better! The entire series is well worth the read! The only complaint I had was I couldn’t put them down, and when I did, the story was always my top thought.

 

Sharon does it again… More romance…Sharon knows how two people who truly love each other and can’t live without one another create a life together. Her stories are romantic and powerful and make you believe in the Darcy’s love story. It is a wonderful read and allows you to go back in time and celebrate in the lives of the Darcys.

 

The Bomb  As a lover of Austen’s writings, I fell in love with this series as well. I found it brilliant and heart warming. As the story continues, there is more passion and love shared between them two than I ever would have imagined just off of Austen’s work. Sharon puts together a wonderful continuation of the story and does not forget to include all the characters that we have come to know and love, even the characters that ruffled our feathers (Caroline Bingley) LOL! My review is just this: If you like Love stories, then this is one series that will fill your heart with passion. If you loved Pride and Prejudice then you will appreciate the continuation of the story as told through another writer.

 

Sharon Lathan does it again!! The Darcys, at the end of their first year as man and wife…child on the way. The future bodes bright for our favorite literary couple. With Sharon’s mind keen on any and everything Darcy and Elizabeth; this book allows us, yet again to dive into Pemberley and the lives of the characters we’ve loved for years, nay decades if not more! Thank you Mrs. Lathan for writing another book that will let us go back in time and enjoy, romp and play in Regency England.  Can’t wait until the next book!!!

 

Another amazing book!  I don’t care what anyone else may think, but I will continue to wait for each of Sharon Lathan’s books because each one seems to be better than the last. This book just makes me feel good about everything. It gives such a happy and truly intimate look at love and how I know it should be. Bravo Sharon Lathan its another great book!

 

You have done it again!  A must read for any fans of the previous two books! Lathan is a wonderfully gifted author that offers everything and more to the Darcy Saga’s third book, or Pride and Prejudice continued! George Darcy is a smash hit, not to mention the wedding! I love the spirit of this book and how just a short time of marriage seems like they can read each others thoughts and minds.

 

Another wonderful addition to Lathan’s Darcy Saga  I think I have enjoyed this book the most in the series. There is more humor and the story is well developed and interesting. The story continues with the Darcy and Elizabeth expecting their first child. The lovers’ travels through the Lakes is enchanting. I loved Elizabeth’s possessiveness and protection of her husband when a gold digger steps in to threaten their relationship. In this novel, Dr. Darcy and William’s relationship is more firmly cemented and established. The scenes with William and George are heartwarming. I also enjoyed the way Lathan interweaves the romances of other characters into her main story line. Well done, again!

 

My absolute favorite of the series.  As I turned the pages of this novel, Sharon turned on the movie screen in my head. Incredible detail, amazing character analysis. The beauty of this novel is amazing and I fell instantly in love with it. I read this novel in a few short hours. I could not put it down. This was another book that kept me up until 3 AM, but I had to read it. It got it the day it came out, which was horrible because then I had to wait a really long time for the next. If you have not read any of this series you are completely missing out. Sharon is amazing and I am so thankful for each of these stories.

 

A+++++  My Dearest Mr. Darcy is the third book in the Darcy Saga Series by Sharon Lathan. Sharon is a gifted author with an amazingly beautiful talent for the written word. In this book Darcy and Elizabeth visit the seaside as their last hoorah before the birth of their first child. I loved this book and had to buy it to add to my Darcy Saga collection. I especially love the description of the whole birthing process. In many ways reminded me of my own birthing experiences as they were done naturally. The book concludes with the two happy new parents bonding with their newborn. I am a huge fan of Sharon’s series and highly recommend any and all of her books. They are beautifully written and I count myself blessed to have happened upon them.

 

Probably my favorite book in Sharon Lathan’s Darcy Saga   This book spans the time beginning with the summer before their first anniversary comes and ends with the arrival of their new baby & the holiday at the year’s end. Lizzy & William are pregnant, anticipating their 1st baby. Their relationships blossoms as does their adventures as husband & wife. Their love they share is beautiful as they grow in so many ways together.

With travels & adventures comes the visit of the wonderful Dr. Darcy (William’s Uncle)! What an exceptional, delightful character you will find in him as he adds humor, excitement and so much love to this wonderful family! Oh!!….and the much anticipated birth of Baby Alexander is heart-warming in so many ways!!!

With this book, you will find that Sharon Lathan’s talented writing gets better & better. There will be new & old characters/events that will capture your heart! Take the time to read this wonderful story & the others that precede & proceed it. You will be glad you did! I’m still smiling.

 

A perfect, heart-warming, inspiring happily-ever-after portrait of a wonderful, blissful, happy marriage!  I tremendously enjoyed reading Sharon Lathan’s My Dearest Mr. Darcy, the third volume of her Darcy Saga. The book lovingly continues her portrayal of the happy marriage of Pride and Prejudice‘s Elizabeth and Darcy. The novel captivated me as much as the first two books in this series. It is an infinite joy to follow the Darcys and their family and friends on their journey through life. I also love the way Sharon Lathan effortlessly, naturally and wonderfully weaves in interesting details (based on extensive research) about daily Regency life into the book.

I tremendously love the author’s wonderful, captivating and inviting writing style. She is a fabulous master painter with words and writes with an enormous attention to detail. I am always completely drawn into her novels from the start. All Sharon Lathan’s novels enormously warm my heart to the core. They are beautifully romantic, sensual, passionate, heart-warming, moving, positive and humorous. And so beautifully written. For me the Darcy Saga novels are by far the most beautiful happily-ever-after novels I have ever read. They are exactly like I always imagined the Darcy marriage would be. Mrs. Lathan brilliantly captures the (timeless) essence of a loving relationship between two people. A beautiful portrait of a marriage based on enduring true love and respect. Her novels are very inspiring. They ooze love, friendship, respect and positivity.

 

Another FABULOUS read from Sharon Lathan  I will admit that I am a huge Sharon Lathan fan. I have read A LOT of Jane Austen fan fiction but the Darcy Saga has captured my heart. Sharon’s writing style allows the reader to be transported right into the story. The extra characters that she creates fit so naturally into the story that it is as if they have always been there. George Darcy is a marvelous character!!! After reading the first three books in this series, I will even admit that my own good marriage has been made better by the influence of the Darcy’s fictitious marriage. I cannot wait for book number four! If you love Lizzy and Darcy and want to read something loving and upbeat…. this series is for you!
