In this romance anthology, fifteen Austenesque authors sketch Darcy’s character through a series of re-imaginings, set in the Regency through contemporary times—from faithful narratives to the fanciful.
"There is some humour, some pathos, some – quite a lot, obviously – romance. I loved each and every one."
"Narrator Harry Frost brings a wealth of characters to life in this anthology of 15 short stories, all told from the point of view of everyone's favorite aloof leading man, Mr. Darcy of PRIDE AND PREJUDICE. ... Frost portrays everything from New York sophisticate to grizzled cowboy, never falling into caricature. A delightful listening experience."
Blown away...Written with expressive prose, thoughtful renderings, and charm, this anthology gives readers an intimate look into the thoughts and feelings of the illustrious and proud Mr. Darcy. Who wouldn't want to spend more time in Darcy's head?!? --Austenesque Reviews
"...you’ll like some of these stories more than others, but you can pick and choose as you please — not a bad way to idle your way through August’s hot, hazy days."
"Most of the short stories here were sweet and light, a few were touching, and a couple simply missed the mark for me. All, however, were well written and well edited. That, alone, would be more than enough to strongly recommend the book. This was a treat to read overall, and there is something here to delight any Austen fan."
...there really is something here to suit all tastes, and to delight any diehard Darcy fan. ~Jane Austen Regency World Magazine
(I'm talking to the confused men out there) you could read these as research if you are still trying to figure out just what will set the women's hearts aflutter for you.--Behind the Willows
"Reading The Darcy Monologues was heartwarming, but listening to it was a whole new experience. It felt more intimate, more tangible, if that makes sense.... Harry Frost was a fantastic Darcy, and he was equally fantastic in portraying different characters, particularly Mr. Collins. ...Since he's fictional, this is the closest I can get to have him whispering in my ear sweet nothings and thoughts I imagined Mr. Darcy would say."
"Not only do you get to sample the writing of some of the best writers in the genre, but you also get to read stories in different styles and flavours, set in different eras. So there’s something for everyone in it to enjoy. Think of The Darcy Monologues as your JAFF gateway drug. Don’t worry, experts agree; it lowers anxiety, increases imagination, and is very good for health."
"What I loved about it – The diversity! There is a perfect story for anyone and any time." --From Pemberley to Milton

"The Darcy Monologues" is a 2017 Favorite (named alongside Christina Lauren, Beau North, et al.)
Edited by Christina Boyd and written by a few of my favorite JAFF (Jane Austen Fan Fiction) authors, this anthology has more than enough Darcys to share with everyone. Set in different eras and timelines, each author perfectly highlighted the Mr. Darcy every romance fan grew to love—a gentleman, a dedicated brother, a good friend, and a devoted lover. A good and honest man.
"This collection is such a tremendous feat, and to see all these authors collaborate together is a dream come true." --Austenesque Reviews (see complete article) Also, voted READERS CHOICE!
"The stories are all of good quality and some are absolutely outstanding - see my review for further details on each short story. This was a 4½ star read for me."
Mr. Darcy soon drew the attention of the room by his fine, tall person, handsome features, noble mien, and the report, which was in general circulation within five minutes after his entrance, of his having ten thousand a year. —Chapter III.
And that is how Jane Austen first establishes the hero of Pride and Prejudice. With an introduction like that, it’s little wonder he garnered the attention of all of Meryton, as well as every reader. But even in the very next sentence, his proud and haughty manners proved to have turned all goodwill against him.
A romance anthology of “Pride and Prejudice” short stories in Mr. Darcy’s own words for 99c today.
