31. Mr. Darcy's Dream
Rated 4 Stars
I had a little trouble orienting my self with this story since I have been reading the Rebecca Ann Collins series. Aston's books are more of a Regency Romance book while Collin's series border on a more serious look a the life and times of the Regency period. But for what it was, it was a good, diverting read and I enjoyed it.
LIBRARY SUMMARY: When Phoebe, a young niece of Pride and Prejudice's Mr. Darcy, is shattered by an unhappy romance, she retreats to Pemberley and is joined by kind-hearted Louisa Bingley, unmarried after three London seasons. Once the young ladies are situated in the house, several handsome strangers also arrive -- all hopeful of winning the girls' hearts. As preparations for the ball which Mr. and Mrs. Darcy are to give at Pemberley gain momentum, mischief and love triangles abound, making life as difficult as possible for anyone connected with the Darcy family. Populated with authentic characters firmly rooted in Jane Austen's mores and stylistic traditions,Mr. Darcy's Dream has an unforgettable combination of romance, societal scandals, friendship, family, and marriage.
