Book Description:
If only everyone could be as happy as they are...

Darcy and Elizabeth are as much in love as ever--even more so as their relationship matures. Their passion inspires everyone around them, and as winter turns to spring, romance blossoms around them....
Confirmed bachelor Richard Fitzwilliam sets his sights on a seemingly unattainable, beautiful widow; Georgiana Darcy learns to flirt outrageously; the very flighty Kitty Bennet develops her first crush, and Caroline Bingley meets her match.
But the path of true love never does run smooth, and Elizabeth and Darcy are kept busy navigating their friends and loved ones through the inevitable separations, misunderstandings, misgivings, and lovers' quarrels to reach their own happily ever afters...

My Review:

Sharon Lathan shows us her knowledge of Darcy and Elizabeth in one of the most romanic novels about the eternal lovers. We get an indepth look into their passionate lives and the deep and everlasting love they share for each other. Jane Austen would approve of this depiction of her characters; Austen fans will continue to love them, as well. As a collector of Austen sequels, I feel this is one of the best yet written and highly recommend it. Congratulations to the author! 5 stars*****

(Thank you to SourceBooks for my review copy!)


  1. Glad you enjoyed the book so! I shall have to keep this one in mind :)

  2. Thank you Barbara. I appreciate your review and the dedication given to share your thoughts with others. Mostly I am happy you enjoyed my novel. That is what it is all about for me. Sincerely, Sharon Lathan

  3. Enjoyed your review Barbara. Sharon certainly does capture the passion and devotion Lizzy and Darcy share. It is a joy to "visit" my all time fav characters within Sharon's novels, it is as though I have been transported ro the very scene Sharon so beautifully describes!
    I totally agree with you that JA herself would approve of how these gorgeous characters develop.

  4. I read and reviewed this one as well and have to agree that these are pretty romantic. I love what Lathan has done. It's nice to see another review of her book go up to get the word out!

  5. Sounds interesting. I usually stay away from sequels not written by the authors, because I feel the characters are no longer real. Glad to know that this book is different. I miss Elizabeth Bennett and Mr. Darcy. It would be nice to visit them at a different stage in their lives.
