He has such a high affinity for affection of any form, and cuddles are a dream come . As well as his affinity for affection. He knows this as well as anybody. However, he hasn’t told anyone that it isn’t all of him.

He has such a high affinity for affection of any form, and cuddles are a dream come true for this child. He may be a pineapple, but he’s such a softie, and cuddles with him mean you’ll either start making out or fall asleep in each other’s arms.

Susan Adriani does just this in The Truth About Mr. Darcy (originally self-published as Affinity and Affection). This book was awesome! Having read tons of JAFF I always love it when I read a book that stands out, that chooses to differentiate itself from the hoard of fan fiction that’s out there. Adriani has done this most specifically with her Lydia Bennet storyline.

The Truth about Mr. Darcy by Susan Adriani - (This book was previously self-published as Affinity and Affection ) In this . Jane Austen-inspired Fiction by Susan Adriani. Austen Authors - Because there's never enough Jane Austen. Darcy by Susan Adriani - (This book was previously self-published as Affinity and Affection ) In this hot tale, Mr. Darcy confesses the truth about George Wickham right from the start. Truth about Mr. Darcy.

What if Mr. Darcy did not simply ride away in anger when he met with Mr. Wickham that day in Meryton? What if he had actually warned Elizabeth Bennet of that gentleman's despicable character? In the spirit and wit of Jane Austen, Affinity and Affection explores the possibility of what might have happened had the proud and haughty Mr. Darcy decided to come down off his high horse, quite literally, so to speak, to lay his personal dealings with his childhood friend and father's former favourite open before the eyes of the bewitching Elizabeth Bennet. Would his forthrightness have set the stage for a better understanding between them? Would it have changed Elizabeth's mind about how she perceived the taciturn Mr. Darcy sooner, rather than later? And what else might have transpired as a result?

I enjoyed reading this book. I must confess normally in some books I find myself skipping through part of it and I didn't in this one. The author truly made Wickham a villainous creeper. I liked the direction she took with his character. I also liked the direction she took with Lydia. The main problem I had with this book was with Darcy and Elizabeth. Darcy is the worldly one and as most woman of that period Elizabeth is the naive one. I felt the author had it reversed in their intimate scenes. Elizabeth grew up with sisters but when Darcy and her were alone the author made no mention of Elizabeth's surprise upon taking in Darcy's form, which to me would be quite natural. Further more I felt the author made Elizabeth appear to be experienced. She seemed aggressive and not bashful but when others such as Catherine Debourg confronted her she went away in tears. This to me was not true to who she was. I guess I felt we should have experienced Elizabeth's intimate growth with Darcy but it felt as though Elizabeth had a courtesan handbook and had everything in hand their first night together. Don't get me wrong I didn't expect Elizabeth full of blushes and hiding herself, although it would have been more believable than making her have no reaction to his body at least the first time. People accused her of seducing him and I'm sorry to say I felt she did. I know it seems as though I have a lot of problems with the book but truly those were minor it was still very enjoyable. Warning this book is also under a different name called Truth About Mr. Darcy.

I think this author is a good writer, so it was enjoyable to read! I liked the storyline, etc., so if you're looking for a good P&P fan fiction book, this is good. HOWEVER...

...I absolutely HATED the fact that they had sex before marriage! Sorry, but Darcy & Elizabeth wouldn't have done that. That is what caused me to give it 4 stars, and I almost dropped it to 3 for that reason. Furthermore, when their relatives found out, there's NO WAY they would've been so accepting of it - they would've been VERY disapproving and upset. They were living in the 18th century, not the 20th.

The other, much less troublesome issue is how well everything turned out - especially with Lydia & Wickham. Didn't really buy it, but I could overlook that.

Overall, it's a good book, worth the read, except for the premarital sex.

I liked the idea that Mr Darcy did not walk away but warned the people around what sort of person Wickham was. I also liked the fact that he was a very passionate man. The way he defended Lizzy and Georgiana when Wickham said those things to him by nearly strangling the life out of him. Also how he searched and found Lydia when they had eloped. How he became more of a father to her helping her get over the emotional upset of this. It is such a wonderful read I can recommend this to anyone who loves the Pride and prejudice story.

There have been well over forty sequels, some far a better read than others. This one seems to be well-researched for the period and reads more like history than a novel, though clearly made up activity is tossed in amongst the accurate detailing of the period. The author leaves the reader somewhat hanging off the cliff on the last page, as though someone had suddenly called her to dinner so she finished her writing. Since it is Book 1, I'm presuming we will read Book 2 after her dinner. There are not many highs or lows of emotion drawn from the reader. However, for those of us compulsively reading all the sequels, this was a must.

I read this back in March of 2009 and even have a copy of an e-mail I exchanged with the author relating to her how I loved this book. I loved the fact that Darcy put himself out there in the beginning, telling Elizabeth about Wickham, standing up to and punching out Wickham and professing his passionate love to her after agonizing about what she might think of his ungentlemanly assault upon Wickham. Later in the story I was so satisfied to see Wickham get his true desserts at the hands of Col. Fitzwilliam and friends. And then Lydia's turnaround after eloping with Wickham and his abandoning her to a brothel. The story had so much angst for me. I would love to see this author give us another tale. She did a marvelous story with her first attempt. I am now reading this book again for I don't know how many times!

This was a great sequel and I have read most of them. Certainly not Jane Austen but it certainly shows Darcy's and Elizabeth's passion for one another. I am hoping she does another sequel.

One of the best sequels I've read. Different slant at the beginning of the story on their future. Hard to put down once started reading. A twist in a plot is always good.
This book, although enjoyable in spots, seemed like a pastiche of other P&P sequels--a little from Abigail Reynolds, a little from Linda Berdoll, etc. I was also put off by the numerous grammatical errors and the complete devotedness of Darcy and Elizabeth. Come on--there needs to be a little dramatic tension between these two characters!
