Summary

Only the night before, she rejected him. Today, she is his intended wife.

Elizabeth Bennet proved he was no gentleman when she rejected his proposal. Darcy is now determined to flee Kent and hopefully not act like a lovelorn schoolboy the next he meets the lively Elizabeth. But when she loses her memory of his disastrous proposal and a bumbling relative believes them engaged, Darcy continues the charade with the plan to tell Elizabeth as soon as he can resolve on how to do so. And yet, she may be falling in love with him....

The very idea that she has accepted the cold, proud Darcy's proposal is absurd to Elizabeth. But why, oh why, did she? She can no longer remember what could have compelled her to accept him, but the changes she sees in him begin to touch her heart. He could be a true gentleman, after all. But when his deception is revealed, will it spell the end for them?

Darcy's Deception is a full-length sweet and clean romance novel that follows a stubborn, lovesick Darcy and a distrustful Elizabeth on their path to happily-ever-after.

One little lie can change the whole story

Relationships should never be built on lies, yet when Darcy omits the truth and takes advantage of an unfortunate event, this story is born. I did not like Darcy at first. I have a hard time with lies, and deception. But as Lizzy started to fall for him, so did I. Darcy was really in love to go to those lengths to get the women he wanted. Well in love, or determined. But either way, I enjoyed following their story as they found love with each other. There were many obstacles to overcome, and I think they added to the story.

Alyssa Rogge has the perfect, British, accent for this story. Her accent added to the story a more realistic feel. Alyssa keeps all the characters separate and easy to follow. Her male voice was smooth and easy to know the difference. Overall, this was a good performance.

Too much agonising for me

I found this focussed too much on long passages about how people felt and what they thought, some of it repetitive. The actual plot was good though and with more dialogue and less introspection this could be a much better story.
The narrator was inconsistent and pronunciation odd at times, especially for names - Marry for Mary, Arne for Anne- but this too varied.

The narrator 😍

What a sweet story! Love Darcy and Elizabeth. There were twists and turns, and it was an enjoyable listen.
But... THE NARRATOR! She was incredible. I fell in love with the characters repeatedly.
Can’t wait to hear more from Alyssa Rogge. She’ll be one to watch!

Narrator Spoke Too Fast!

The story was so cute and it was easy to fall into.

Except that the narrator spoke much too quickly. There was hardly a break in-between sentences. At times, it felt like one, continuous run-on sentence when there was obviously meant to be a pause for the listener to reflect and soak in on what was said.
I had to slow down the speed of the audiobook from 1.0 to .9 speed before I could start to enjoy it.

A Delightful P&P Variation

I was very concerned downloading this book that I might not like it - I mean, how dare you paint Darcy as anything other than honorable? But this was a beautiful rendition of an alternate ending to Pride and Prejudice that is done in a tasteful way. It is wondrous to see Lydia as anything other than horrendously annoying. I absolutely loved this book and if you love P&P then you will too! The narrator did a good job - I think the only way I could have enjoyed this audiobook more would be if a male had done the male character narration. #AudiobookObsessionReviewer

Narration different than most P&P variations

The narrator’s accent was different - not sure how to describe it - maybe Old Irish. Almost stopped listening, but the story kept me listening.

Lovely story

I loved it. Great JAFF. The only thing I did not like as much was the narrator’s pronunciation of some words. Sounded awkward, like cravaaaaat. And chaaaapters. But all in all it was good and I enjoyed it.

Good plot

the plot of the story was plausible and well written. the reader had a difficult time sticking to a British accent and I sometimes thought I was listening two characters from Scotland or Ireland.

Very Well Written Variation!

This Pride and Prejudice variation begins the morning after Darcy's failed Hunsford proposal, as he stalks the lane waiting to give Lizzy the letter he's written. While he walks he comes across a carriage accident, and Lizzy injured in the accident. Darcy carries her home and discovers Lizzy has lost all memory of the previous night, including his proposal and her refusal. When a bumbling Mr. Collins assumes that they're engaged, Darcy doesn't correct him, and everyone around them is convinced they're engaged, except Lizzy herself.

I really enjoyed this variation! Darcy was sweet and caring from the beginning, taking care of Lizzy and wooing her as he should have from the start His letters! *sigh* I had to rewind them twice. The romance between the two was really well written. There's also a good villain in Lady Catherine, and even Anne plays her part to keep the couple apart. The whole book was really fun.

The narration was really well done, with the perfect voice and accent for the story. It pulled me right in, it was a great performance. I requested a copy of the audiobook, and I'm voluntarily leaving a review.

Adaptation of Classic Pride & Prejudice!

Darcy's Deception (A Pride & Prejudice Variation) is a intriguing twist of a Jane Austen's Classic novel Pride and Prejudice. Witty moments seep through the pages. Character's are compelling and well-suited for the era. The writing style is organic and this author creates this season's new tale spinoff. A entertaining listen.


Narator Alyssa Rogge was a perfect choice to narrate this audio. Her british accent fit the narrative exquisitely. Her inflection fit the characters and it was easily distinctable between the characters. Her tone and pace flows through smoothly and flawlessly. I absolutely loved her performance and would definitely listen to her again.

Oh what a tangled web we weave

The morning after the horrible Hunsford proposal Darcy is on his way with The Letter and finds Lizzy dazed and confused as a rest of a carriage accident.

Unintentionally, Darcy ends up engaged to Lizzie as a result of an overheard conversation when he Carrie’s her to the Parsonage.

His “deception “ in not clearing that up immediately results in him becoming further mired in issues that may prevent their HEA. Lady Catherine and Anne meddle, one well meaning, one not. Mr. Bennet resists giving his approval. Lizzie questions why she accepts in the first place. As soon as you believe things are working out, hang on.

Diehard fan of Stevie Zimmerman

Loved Darcy! The narrator just makes you fall in love with him I don’t know how she does it. I need her to do all the variations from kindle unlimited. Another clean story. Although very cute, I really want Stevie Zimmerman to do more spicy PNP variations. If you are reading this review, I need you to join me in this obsession lol
