Product Description

Widowed after six months of marriage, an older Elizabeth is determined to leave her past behind and enjoy life to its fullest, on her own terms. Charming, witty, and engaging, she is widely admired by all. However, everything is not as it seems. She harbours a secret.

The beautiful widow captivates a younger Mr. Darcy. He knows her better than she knows herself. He struggles to break through her protective barriers, the most daunting being her tightly held conviction that she will never marry again.


Refusing to suffer anyone's pity, the heroine hides the unpleasant truth of her forced marriage from everyone. Having observed the mourning period for a deceased husband she did not love, she looks forward to enjoying a Season in town.

Her liveliness, her beauty, and her charms attract the notice of unscrupulous people posing as friends. There's only one man able to help her navigate the treacherous waters of the ton.

5.0 out of 5 stars A unique P&P variation 1 May 2012
By Stephanie Hamm - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
If you are looking for a story that takes you beyond Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, this is a perfect choice. It offers a completely different take on P&P and puts our beloved characters in a unique situation and shows how they react to these new circumstances.

Elizabeth is forced to marry a man she does not want. Almost immediately he abandons her to live with an unknown family that does not like her. Shortly into the marriage her husband dies and his family rejects his widow, leaving Elizabeth at the mercy of her family. Elizabeth decides to live with Jane and Bingley, at which time she eventually meets Darcy.

Darcy soon falls in love with Elizabeth but must overcome many obstacles: his age (him being years younger), her widow status, her lack of connections and money, and her reluctancy to marry again. He's in for a most fearsome battle: a fight against Elizabeth's stubbornness!

Having lost faith in the institute of marriage and men in general, Elizabeth has resolved to never marry again. However, she has underestimated Darcy and his determination to make her his wife. If you are like me and love to see a 'determined Darcy' then you will love this Darcy. He will not give up until Elizabeth knows that she is worthy of love, but most importantly, his love.

This is a lovely, romantic tale of a confused, misguided Elizabeth, and a Darcy that shows her the right path to her destiny.

4.0 out of 5 stars Younger Darcy, Older Elizabeth? YES! A Wonderful Tale 2 May 2012
By Jakki L. - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Dixon delivers yet another fascinating adaptation on much loved tale.

Finding herself widowed after six months of marriage, Elizabeth moves in with her sister, Jane Bingley. Determined to enjoy life as a widow, Elizabeth makes the most of the Season, welcoming the steady stream of callers who grace the Bingleys' sitting room. Yet, all may not be as it seems. Scarred by her past, Elizabeth does not trust easily. Realizing she harbors a secret, Darcy sets out to discover what Elizabeth is hiding, while at the same time, desiring to earn more than her trust.

Dixon does a great job of incorporating the goings on of the ton into her story. Here, we catch a glimpse of what really goes on inside gentlemen clubs, such as White's, and how widows keep their beds warm. Coincidentally, this is also where I became irritated with Elizabeth's naiveté. Not only is she inexperienced, but at times she is also immature. The way Elizabeth openly flirts with callers, and doesn't realize the import of her words or the consequences of such forward behavior, reminds me of Lydia and the regiment. A few times, it seemed as if I was reading a Regency romance with some drawing room drama taking place.

Dixon slowly builds up the heat between Darcy and Elizabeth. While there is the hot, sensual passion, their needs run much deeper than just the physical. Welding together friendship and trust, the two come to have such a deep love for each other in all aspects. Even though my heart broke for the pain in Elizabeth's past, Darcy was quick to put me at ease with his gentle solicitude. The way Darcy sets out to protect Elizabeth, regardless the cost, the trust each gains from the other, and the sense of oneness they achieve, solidify their relationship into being one that will overcome any obstacle.

With a few scoundrels, a dynamic heroine, pain, passion, and abiding love, Still a Young Man is a winner and sure to please the Pride and Prejudice variation lover.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still a Young Man: Darcy Is In Love 11 March 2015
By Kindle Customer - Published on

Another wonderful variation of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice. In this variation, Elizabeth is a widow living with her sister and her husband, Jane and Bingley. Charles contacts Darcy for estate help and when Darcy finds out what he has married into, he asks if he lost his mind. Not knowing that Elizabeth is in the library with them, Darcy first tells Charles that she's tolerable, then States she is stunning. Although she agrees with his assessment of her family, she is still aggravated by his remarks. She then gets up, and excuses herself giving Darcy a look that could kill. As in any other variation, misunderstandings continue to dominate their relationship. Darcy does upon seeing her in Wickham's presence, tells her his history with him. She is angry with herself that she didn't recognize things about him, because he was just like her deceased husband. She was forced to marry Daniel Calbry, because in an attempt to run for him after witnessing him in the trees with one of the servant girls, her gasp alerted him to her presence and as she struggled as he grabbed her, this was witnessed by neighbors. Mr. Bennet's refusal to listen to her explanation of what really happened, combined with the forced marriage, Elizabeth went into a unhappy union by both parties. When Daniel dies in a carriage accident, his family who has never desired the marriage, throws her out. No where to go, Jane with Bingley's blessing, takes her sister in. When Caroline sees how infatuated Darcy is with Elizabeth, she throws out ever vile comment she can think off whether it is true or not. Until, her sister, Louisa, feeds into these lies, because she too desires Darcy. Jane and Bingley promise her a season in London. She is widely accepted and popular, aided by Lady Marie Hargrove, Darcy's past bedroom partner ( not lover). He begins to wonder why all the attention to the beautiful widow, of course he wants her for himself, when visiting his club, White's, he sees the wagers who will bed her first. He tries to warn her the viciousness of the Ton, but she cannot take any criticism from him and suggests he is jealous. He wonders at Lady Marie Hargrove's invitation to tea and suspects something is going on. He pays her servant to notify him when Lord Winthrop shows up, because he knows they hang together, and Lord Winthrop was in on the wager. Lady Marie never shows, but Lord Winthrop enters the drawing room and locks the door. He tells her he has come to collect what's his for all the time he's wasted on her. Remembering what Darcy told her, she is frightened and angry at Lord Winthrop and Lady Marie. Darcy comes through the door while Lord Winthrop leaves disgusted. In her eyes, Darcy sees sadness beyond today's happenings. He invites the Bingleys and Elizabeth to Pemberley to spend the summer. The Hursts and Caroline show up uninvited. Needless to say, Caroline is quite angry at Elizabeth being there, and she continues her usual hateful remarks along with Louisa. Darcy and Elizabeth have formed a strong friendship, and she believes she wants his passion. One night, one of the ladies find themselves in Darcy's bed chamber. He is beyond angry and demands that they leave Pemberley and never will they be invited to any of his homes. The next morning sees the Hursts and Caroline leaving, Darcy proposes and is not accepted, Jane gets the letter from Mary about Lydia and Wickham's eloping to Greta Green. Bingley talks to Darcy, and Darcy tells him he will see to their recovery, while Bingley takes Jane and Elizabeth back to Longbourn. Darcy fixes everything and because the newlyweds are not invited to Longbourn, the Bingleys are stuck with them until Wickham goes to Newcastle. Bingley invites Darcy to Netherfield, but Darcy says he cannot come because of family business in Kent. He's been in Kent longer than he's ever been , and Elizabeth knows she has lost him forever, just as she realizes she loves him. When Charlotte invites her to Hunsford, she willing goes even though he cousin Collins is there whom she refused his hand. She's hoping to see and talk to Darcy, but when she arrives finds he has left. Sad and disheartened, she now realizes it's all too late. While being interrogated by Lady Catherine, Darcy and Colonel Fitzwilliam arrive. Lady Catherine attributes his return to his commitment to Anne, but when everyone sees his attention to Elizabeth, they know better. Lady Catherine is about to rescind her invitation to dinner but despite her concern between Darcy and Elizabeth, she does not. Always a sticker for proper formal dining, Mr. And Mrs. Collins cannot sit together which much to her dismay, puts Darcy and Elizabeth next to one another. Even though they didn't speak much, they were both watched by Lady Catherine and Anne. The next time they're invited to dinner, Elizabeth doesn't want to go, but Collins will not let up. Upon arrival, Colonel Fitzwilliam relates a story about a wealthy gentleman that marries a gentle woman
4.0 out of 5 stars Moderately enjoyable variation on Pride & Prejudice 19 December 2016

What would change if Elizabeth were older than Jane, if she was pushed into a forced marriage, and if she is older than Darcy and enters society as Bingley's sister in law?

These changes fascinated me and I was eager to see how I liked the altered story.

I soon discovered that if I was to have any enjoyment from this book that I had to adjust to the fact that this was not very close to the original both in the plot and the characters somewhat. These are more mature characters with lusty needs. I also found it interesting to see how much the author has matured as a writer since I've read more of her recent books and went back for this earlier one.

I liked this story, but didn't end up loving it for a few reasons. Elizabeth was the main reason. She had a traumatic experience and I can't blame her for how it scarred her, but what I do blame her for was making the same mistake over and over and...yes, over. She is a lousy judge of character and knows it, but lets it guide her anyway. She gets a hair up her nose about Darcy and chooses to obstinately ignore everything he tries to counsel her about using his knowledge of the people and the world of society he knows well and she knows not at all.

Darcy was a dashing hero and worked hard to court Elizabeth and coming to her rescue. I loved the way Jane and Charlotte were written. Lady C and Caroline were the comic relief though moderately.

So, it was good, but not great though a creative story path was the strong point.

4.0 out of 5 stars fun read! 7 October 2012
By Candy @ So little time... - Published on

In this Pride and Prejudice variation, after being forced into a loveless marriage, Elizabeth, vows never to marry again. She has just come out of morning the loss of her late husband when she meets a young Mr. Darcy. After overhearing his disparaging words about her and her family Elizabeth thinks Darcy is overbearing, rude and pompous. As Darcy learns more about Elizabeth, he becomes intrigued by her. He sees a sadness in her that most don't see and feels the need to protect her. Elizabeth however, is not willing to listen to him when he cautions her about the new friends she is making.

Traveling to London with Jane and Bingley, Elizabeth is determined to enjoy the Season. She becomes friends with the widow Lady Marie Hargrove. Having received a nice settlement from her late husband, Lady Marie has money and independence, which she has no intention of giving up by re-marrying. Elizabeth is also receiving the attention of Lord Winthrop. Darcy, suspicious of both, tries to warn her but she is unwilling to listen to him.

I found Elizabeth to be a bit naive. She wants to have the freedom and fun she had before she married, but doesn't realize the position she is in now. While she is dancing and enjoying the company of certain men, they on the other hand have entirely different ideas of what the company of a widow might bring. Also, I was not fond of the fact that Elizabeth is older than Darcy. It just didn't seem right with me, but I was able to ignore that and enjoy the rest of the story.

I loved finding lines from Pride and Prejudice put in a variety of places throughout the story. In some cases, it would be the same character, in the same setting, saying the line. Other times, it would be a different character, in a different setting, saying a line. Quite fun!

I always enjoy reading P O Dixon's stories! Still a Young Man is a fun read with an interesting twist!
