Marooned with Darcy: A Pride & Prejudice Variation Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Marooned with the last man she would ever marry....
Lizzy and Jane are on a ship bound for America to stay with Mr. Collins’s younger brother when they meet Mr. Bingley and Mr. Darcy. Mr. Darcy’s disapproval of the burgeoning affection between Jane and Charles is painfully obvious, and Lizzy does her best to thwart his attempts to stop the developing relationship. She is puzzled by how invigorating it can be to trade barbs with Darcy, and he seems to enjoy it as well, but he is the last man she could ever soften toward due to his haughty manner and prideful ways.
When their ship wrecks, Lizzy and Darcy end up stranded alone on an island. As the days pass while they await rescue, the undeniable attraction between them becomes overwhelming, leading them both to act. Even as Lizzy succumbs to the temptation and falls for Darcy, she wonders if he is indeed the last man she would ever marry, or if she has been fooling herself about the strength of her emotions all along?
While Abbey sometimes writes sweet jaff, this is strictly sensual.

Am hopeful Abbey's other work will be just as delightful to read and look forward to any forthcoming works she may have.
In short, you should read this book. ;)
Mr. Bennet is dead; Collins married Charlotte and takes over Longbourn. Jane and Elizabeth are sent to America to meet Collins' younger brother. While on ship Jane meets and falls in love with Bingley but Darcy (whose arm Bingley twisted to accompany him on a trip to tour the USA) makes obvious his disapproval of the match. The ship sinks when the mast breaks during a storm. Darcy takes charge of making sure Elizabeth gets on one of the lifeboats. Soon that boat is overturned and Darcy and Elizabeth are the only ones to survive this. They have set the lifeboat aright and it soon drifts close enough to an island to which the couple swims.
Yes, they soon find a physical attraction to each other which is played out and they also declare their love. There is little suspense here and there is a happy ending...although the merchant ship which rescues them has a captain who abhors having women on board and makes all men onboard join in the crew's labor which makes for a bit of anxiety near the end. That and Collins' brother turns out to have a different interpretation of why Jane and Elizabeth were sent to America.
This short story does have MA scenes.
I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
It had its fun moments, some exciting ones, and I don't regret reading it via Kindle Unlimited. However, I doubt that I would want to read it again, so I can't recommend a purchase. I'm sorry, genuinely. A little polish and it could be better.
