Summary

Of all the women he could be stuck with, it had to be the one who poses the greatest threat to his plans.

Fitzwilliam Darcy prides himself on his caution. Not willing to leave his beloved sister’s future to chance, he has a plan to see her happily settled. Nothing and no one will stand in his way.

Elizabeth Bennet will do anything to see her dearest sister happy, even defying the surly gentleman from Derbyshire. Using her rapier sharp wit and rapid fire humor, no one, not even Mr. Darcy, will keep her from reaching her goal.

When clever forces contrive to compromise the pair, Darcy and Elizabeth must work together to turn their rivalry into a convincing romance. Can true love win this epic battle of wills?

Someone’s got to give, and Darcy is determined to win. Then again, so is Elizabeth….

A Cleverly (Un)contrived Compromise is a feel-good, low-angst, sweet Regency romantic comedy inspired by Jane Austen's timeless classic, Pride and Prejudice.

Very enjoyable

Great narration. Lovely story. Bit different to some other PPVs. Loved the coments about characters being like dogs or cats. Also the references to Jane Austens sense and sensibility.

A very easy listen

Although there are difficulties along the way, neither of them is really unreasonable and so issues are resolved. Well read and the gentle tone of the story makes it a very easy listen.

I can't give a five until

I get to listen to one of these fun stories that does not put in anachronisms. I'm sorry to start every sentence with I, but I can't type and have to dictate. I particularly object to the phrase rolling the eyes. I have researched , and I found it did not come into use as a dismissive or irritated action until the 1950s. before that it always had a sexual connotation. I found this particular variation to be full of phrases that don't fit the time. I heard kidding as in teasing and all sorts of other things that really jar.
