I happen to be a real fan of Sharon Lathan's novels and writing style. Honestly, I feel very comfortable with her writing, and trust in the sentence structure to carry me through a beautiful story. It is interesting to me how her personal voice adds that second level to the romantic story, making it even sweeter. The experiences that Darcy and Elizabeth share are fun to witness, and although the birth of the baby seems to take an agonizingly long time to get to, there is a "real time" feeling about the story. There really isn't a complication to be resolved, outside of the birth of the baby, so much of our reading time is spent in high anticipation for the big moment. We get to trip along with the Darcys, viewing their loving relationship like a great voyeur, reveling in their breathless love and happiness. After all, who doesn't want a relationship filled with such depths of love and devotion? Yes, it touched off my romantic side. Sigh. Once again, the novel does have scenes of a sensual nature, but not as graphic as in many romance novels today.As always, I loved reading Lathan's third novel. The joy in this read is in the ramblings down seaside coasts and forest trails; the joy comes in the love and the pain. In some very simple ways, lovers of Pride and Prejudice have already imagined such sweet and loving scenes as painted for us in the pages of these novels, but here we get to sit back and enjoy their story as it unfolds. I really felt that this novel started to feel more like they were starting to slip into their settled roles, yet still filled with love. I enjoyed watching them relax into their marriage, and continue down the path towards becoming a great family. This was a great third installment, and I can already hardly wait for the fourth!

Elizabeth and Darcy's first year of marriage is coming to an end and they both are finding that they are more in love with each other then they ever thought. But Darcy learns that there are still many things to learn about Elizabeth and that he can still be surprised.The Darcy Saga is another first for me. It's the third book in the series, but definitely easy to follow. Loving Pride and Prejudice myself, I have to say read this story was a treat. Revisiting such beloved characters, peaking in on what their life has brought them. A heartfelt enjoyable story filled with passion and warmth. Beautifully written. You can tell just how much the author loves the story and the characters. If your a fan of Pride and Prejudice and ever wondered what happen to Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy after the book ended, The Darcy Saga is the perfect series to indulge in.
