REVIEW: If Mr. Darcy Dared by Elizabeth Ann West

Book Blurb: A kiss at the Netherfield Ball . . .

As Charles Bingley and Fitzwilliam Darcy prepare for the Netherfield Ball, a gentlemen’s challenge develops between them to secure their future happiness . . . with the two eldest Bennet sisters! But when things do not go as expected for Mr. Darcy, Hertfordshire society is in an uproar over the pursuit of one of their favorite daughters by such a wealthy gentleman.

Despite being claimed by Mr. Darcy as his future bride, Elizabeth Bennet has no plans to wed the proud and disdainful Mr. Darcy, no matter what her father says! At her sister’s urging, she agrees to give him a chance, if only for Jane’s sake. But there are others with an interest in breaking a match between Fitzwilliam Darcy and some country miss. . .

The stakes are high and romance strong as two of Jane Austen’s most beloved characters dare to declare their feelings, dare to defy family, and dare to trust each other!

If Mr. Darcy Dared is a steamy romance for fans of Elizabeth Ann West’s other works, especially those readers who love their drama cranked to a ten!

My Review: Can I start off by saying that I really love the cover for this book. It's so pretty and I just love it so much. I have to say this book took far longer to read than it should have. Between my nieces being over for the weekend and then being wiped out after they left I was just way too exhausted to do much reading.

So our poor couple in this book has way too much thrown at them before they can finally be married. From Mr. Bennet refusing to let them marry, Mr. Wickham being his devious self and Lady Catherine, along with unfounded rumors traveling all over England way to fast what is our dear couple to do? I enjoyed the ride and the all the steaminess in this novel and I hope that the author's new novels retain a touch of the steam in the future. I enjoyed this book and I recommend it if you enjoy a lot of obstacles and angst in your romance.

Rating: ★★★★☆


  1. I do enjoy books where Wickham is Wickham
