This lushly romantic and historically fascinating story is filled with lavish details of Regency customs and social events including Elizabeth's presentation to the Prince Regent, Georgiana's debut at the exclusive Almack's Assembly, and the Darcys' travels through the dramatic Peak District of Derbyshire. Romance finds nearly everyone as confirmed bachelor Richard Fitzwilliam sets his sights on the seemingly unattainable Lady Fotherby, Georgiana Darcy learns to flirt, the very serious Kitty Bennet develops her first crush, and Caroline Bingley meets her match. Through it all, Elizabeth and Darcy are kept busy helping friends and family navigate true love's inevitably rocky course.
Sharon Lathan has written several books that continue one of the most romantic and beloved stories of all time, Pride and Prejudice. The first book, Mr. and Mrs. Fitzwilliam Darcy, takes place shortly after the wedding. Sharon takes us behind closed doors (wink, wink, nod, nod) to give us a more personal look into the Darcy's lives.
In the Arms of Mr. Darcy is the fourth book in Sharon Lathan's Darcy Saga. This book picks up right where the third book left off, Darcy and Elizabeth have their precious baby boy, Alexander. Sharon Lathan takes us on a journey through the lives of the characters we love so much. In this book we get to experience Elizabeth and Darcy's first baby and all the trials that come with it. She keeps the romance between Darcy and Elizabeth sizzling hot while dealing with many realistic situations that new parents often face. My absolute favorite part of this book is the side stories with Georgina, Kitty, and Col. Fitzwilliam. I loved learning more about their characters and the direction that Sharon Lathan takes them in. I hope Sharon writes more about them in the future. I also love Dr. Darcy. He is one of my favorite characters in this series. I wish I had an uncle like him. He is a great addition to the cast of characters. Sharon Lathan has done a great job with this series. I've read all four books and I have not been disappointed. Also in the back of my book was a preview to the upcoming novel, A Darcy Christmas, which looks very good. Keep a look out for it!
