Pamela Aidan’s trilogy finally answers that long-standing question, creating a rich parallel story that follows Darcy as he meets and falls in love with Elizabeth Bennet.
Duty and Desirethe second book in the trilogy, covers the “silent time” of Austen’s novel, revealing Darcy’s private struggle to overcome his attraction to Elizabeth while fulfilling his roles as landlord, master, brother, and friend. When Darcy pays a visit to an old classmate in Oxford in an attempt to shake Elizabeth from his mind, he is set upon by husband-hunting society ladies and ne’er-do-well friends from his university days, all with designs on him — some for good and some for ill.
He and his sartorial genius of a valet, Fletcher, must match wits with them all, but especially with the curious Lady Sylvanie. Irresistibly authentic and entertaining, Duty and Desire remains true to the spirit and events of Pride and Prejudice while incorporating fascinating new characters, and is sure to dazzle Austen fans and newcomers alike.

This book was so off the mark compared to the first in the series! Really, if you want to enjoy this series Aside from Darcy’s inability to forget Elizabeth, and his treasuring of a bookmark Elizabeth had left in a novel j been reading during her stay at Netherfield, there is not much to recommend this second installment of the trilogy. Darcy and his valet are more like Batman and Robin Colonel Fitzwilliam comes off as pompous and a bit jealous of his older brother, not at all the “convivial fellow” constructed by Austen.
Darcy leaves his sister shortly after Christmas to get over Elizabeth by actively hunting for a wife.
Duty and Desire (Fitzwilliam Darcy, Gentleman #2) by Pamela Aidan
He chooses to do drseo at the aged castle in which an old school chum lives, gambling away his fortune.
Darcy encounters a variety of women who all fall all over themselves to make him love them, but he is entranced by a woman with a great air of mystery about her. Ultimately, of course, this woman turns out to be unsuitable for him in the extreme, but only after Darcy acts in ways I can see Austen weeping over, and the lady in question deeso exposed for her involvement in a truly treacherous scheme.
I finished this book out of faithful loyalty to reading the complete trilogy, and those all-to-brief moments when Darcy reflected on his feelings for Elizabeth. All else I would easily have passed by! The third and final chapter of this trilogy has a great deal to atone for to make me forget this book!
View all 8 comments. Mar 21, Katie rated it really liked it. I have read other reviews on this website where people said to just skip this second book altogether and just read the third book. Darcy are apart; after he goes off to London with Bingley and before they meet up again at Rosings in the Spring. I found it quite interesting xeber worth reading. It fills in that gap quite nicely and if nothing aisan it allows the reader to really get to know Mr.
If you’ve ever wondered how Mr. Darcy came to the point where he expresses his love for Elizabeth, this will enlighten you. I could have done without the last part of the book, when he’s at Norwycke Castle, but I know it was meant to illustrate his character further as well as show how he’s becoming more aware that marriages of convenience do not make a happy life and perhaps that’s not the direction he wants to go.
Overall, a good book and quite enjoyable. Oct 19, Marian rated it it was ok. As much as I loved the first book in the series, this one was a big disappointment. The story picks up where Mr. Darcy leaves Netherfield and he and Elizabeth do not meet again for some time.
This author’s account of where he went and what he did strays very far from the tone and style of Austin’s story. Darcy leaves to try and find a more veber wife. He believes once he does, he will forget Elizabeth. Fair enough, I liked that idea; but where he goes and who he meets just gets strange. H As much as I akdan the first book in the series, this one was a big disappointment.
Duty and Desire
He is involved a mystery complete with a sacrificed pig and a stolen baby. I never pictured Mr. Darcy as a rich socialite by day and Sherlock Holmes by night. To me, the two do not fit. Jul 16, Kelly rated it did not like it. ajdan

The novel starts off with a lot of what one would expect. Christmas at Pemberly, meeting Miss Deebr Darcy, and of course getting to see Darcy in his element working with his staff and tenants and going about the business that he was raised to do.
This was fascinating to read and revealed even more about Mr. Darcy and his family and friends. After Christmas things take a turn and the novel takes on a new tenor. It strikes out into the uncertain waters of a Gothic romance. It’s almost as if the time in the castle was time spent in the Twilight Zone. pamella

I finished this book out of faithful loyalty to reading the complete trilogy, and those all-too-brief moments when Darcy reflected on his feelings for Elizabeth. Although I liked the first book, this one strayed too far from the original subjects for me. The only positive was that we do see how Darcy could come to the conclusion that character of a lady outweighs her position in life. This is never entirely clear in the original and I found it to be the redeeming factor of this book.

The dip into Gothic romance felt bizarre and mismatched, especially when compared to An Assembly Such As This, which was pitch-perfect Austen, and I simply didn’t believe that the character we were following in the second half of the book was Fitzwilliam Darcy.
Aivan like the last two hundred pages were chopped off and an entirely different book glued on. I am deeply disappointed. Jul 11, Mina Lobo rated it really liked it. Some reviewers expressed dissatisfaction with the second book in Aidan’s trilogy and, if they wished to experience more interaction with Lizzy Bennett in it, that would have led to disappointment.
As at least one other person noted, Lizzy does not appear in person in this installment. However, in my opinion, she was omnipresent in the narrative, as Darcy constantly brought her to his, and the reader’s, mind. Much as he tried, he could not shake her memory, and if nothing else the book served to Some reviewers expressed dissatisfaction with the second book in Aidan’s trilogy and, if they wished to experience more interaction with Lizzy Bennett in it, that would have led to disappointment.
Much as he tried, he could not shake her memory, and if nothing else the book served to cement the affection deeseo attraction Darcy inadvertently harbors for Lizzy. As a hypothetical foray into the gentleman’s mind when he was so long absent from Meryton, until he met up with Lizzy again at his exalted Aunt’s home, it wasn’t every reader’s cuppa, but I enjoyed it.
Another reviewer noted this was a bit of Gothic farce, in the way of Northanger Abbey – this did not turn me off as it did that reader. It was a somewhat dark descent into the peculiar turns of human nature, as deebr as an exploration of existential matters involving God’s justice.
Also, I happen to enjoy Gothic farce. The tale does twist down bizarre, and even creepy, alleys, but why not? Anyway, as a lover of Gothic page-turners, Duty and Desire satisfied me, and I look forward to completing Aidan’s trilogy soon.
Oct 25, Vaarin rated it really liked it Shelves: Book 2 of the “A novel of Fitzwilliam Darcy Gentleman, trilogy. The second instalment on this trilogy enters before Christmas, after the Netherfield party has left. Darcy’s involvement in the attempt to persuade Bingley not to return to Hertfordshire, stood in great conflict with his later pronounced abhorrence of deceit. Darcy’s relationship dsber his sister gets the eeseo of attention in the beginning and I adored this portray of Georgiana.
She was astute and caring. One might expect Darcy’s pining for Elizabeth to have been more in the senter but I loved how it was done. Subtle but I felt it made it even more emotional. You can feel the under currents rather than having it elaborated page after page. Darcy did not learn his lesson before Hunsford but Georgiana was working on aiddan while he sought entertainment to banish Elizabeth from his thoughts.
