In Jane Austen's classic Pride & Prejudice, Mr. Darcy gives up on winning the woman he loves after she refuses him.

What if ...
Instead of disappearing from Elizabeth Bennet's life after she refused his offer of marriage, Mr. Darcy had stayed and tried to change her mind?

What if ...
Lizzy, as she gets to know Darcy, finds him undeniably attractive and her impulses win out over her sense of propriety?

What if ...
Madly in love and mutually on fire, their passion anticipates their wedding? In Impulse & Initiative, instead of avoiding Elizabeth after his ill-fated marriage proposal, Mr. Darcy follows her back to her home in Hertfordshire, planning to prove to her he is a changed man and worthy of her love. And little by little, Elizabeth begins to find the man she despised becoming irresistible...

Exploring the roads not taken in Pride and Prejudice, Abigail Reynolds picks up from a pivotal point in Pride and Prejudice - Mr. Darcy's botched marriage proposal - and imagines lively plot twists and ecstatically happy endings.

AKA: To Conquer Mr Darcy - I really enjoyed this book and felt that the characters were well developed and that this book did a really good job of displaying both an emotional and physical attraction between Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy.

I found the cover distressing because I hear Lydia's voice saying something about a "nasty freckled thing." But the story is one of passion, and in this one Colonel Fitzwilliam pushes Darcy to continue pursuing Lizzy even after she has refused him. Loved the way the servants watch out for Darcy at the end of the book.
