Praise for To Have His Cake (and Eat It Too)

I found To Have His Cake (and Eat it Too) to be an imaginative, emotional, and exhilarating variation of Pride and Prejudice.  Meredith, Austenesque Reviews

It reminded me a bit of Jane Eyre...but with better lighting. The "what if" plot led to continued friction and misunderstanding between Darcy and Elizabeth...with some heat thrown in.  Kelli Crowe, reader

Highlights
* Amorous, provocative, and at times, tumultuous adaptation

* Mr. Darcy renews his acquaintance with Miss Elizabeth Bennet - her own circumstances greatly diminished pursuant to the sudden and tragic death of her father.

* Darcy's journey from a man who, indeed, is proud and haughty, to one who seeks to please a woman worthy of being pleased.

**More Praise**
"I loved witnessing Darcy's journey through confusion, aggravation, acceptance, dejection, and finally resolve."

"The idea of the story drew me in and left me wanting more. It is quite hard to set your work apart in a sea of Pride and Prejudice follow ups and Ms. Dixon did just that."

 

Overview
Fitzwilliam Darcy had the best of intentions towards Miss Elizabeth Bennet.

 

His sense of duty to his family prohibited him from offering her marriage.

His love for her prohibited him from attempting to make her his mistress.

What then, is a man of means supposed to do when he realizes he cannot live without the only woman he will ever love?

 

**Quotes**

"All of the chastisement of a wife with none of the benefits ..." Fitzwilliam Darcy

"That sounds like the voice of the would-be mistress of Pemberley ..." Colonel Fitzwilliam

"Is it possible that his inherent generosity blinded him to his offence against me?" Miss Elizabeth Bennet

Reviews

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Aaarrrggghhh This was almost unreadable. Totally insipid, with sometimes anachronistic dialogue and a completely unbelievable story.
