Giveaway: My Own Mr Darcy by Karey White


Karey White, author of the adorably-covered My Own Mr. Darcy, had intended to participate in AIA this year, but between her vacation and my general Gmail suckage, we couldn't make it happen. But don't worry - I've made a note to have her involved next year, and until then, you can visit her at her website and on Facebook. And I was able to get her to  come to the party for a little while... Long enough to offer up copies of her book to a few of you Janeites!

My Own Mr. Darcy by Karey White

220 pages
Published July 15th 2013 by Createspace
After being dragged to the 2005 movie Pride and Prejudice by her mother, sixteen-year-old Elizabeth’s life changes when Matthew Macfadyen’s Mr. Darcy appears on the screen. Lizzie falls hard and makes a promise to herself that she will settle for nothing less than her own Mr. Darcy. This ill-advised pledge threatens to ruin any chance of finding true love. During the six intervening years, she has refused to give any interested suitors a chance. They weren’t Mr. Darcy enough. Coerced by her roommate, Elizabeth agrees to give the next interested guy ten dates before she dumps him. That guy is Chad, a kind and thoughtful science teacher and swim coach. While she’s dating Chad, her dream comes true in the form of a wealthy bookstore owner named Matt Dawson, who looks and acts like her Mr. Darcy. Of course she has to follow her dream. But as Elizabeth simultaneously dates a regular guy and the dazzling Mr. Dawson, she’s forced to re-evaluate what it was she loved about Mr. Darcy in the first place.

  1. I think for me it's his ability to admit he was wrong. I know a lot of men that refuse to do just that! (though my own Mr Darcy isn't one of them)

  2. It's the same for me, not only is he willing to admit he was wrong but he's also willing to change. Not to win Elizabeth over, but to become a better man /sigh!

  3. Sounds like a great read! Thanks for a chance to win.

  4. It's possible that I have a similar vow to myself. Not so much about the handsome or what not, but a Mr. Darcy always strikes me as a GOOD man. I think that might be where long term happiness is at.

  5. Oh, this is on the top of my Austen-TBR! Sounds like a fantastic story. And my favorite thing about Mr. Darcy is his willingness to look at himself (and his faults) and to make himself a better man.

  6. My favourite thing is that at heart he is a good man but running a very close second is his library

  7. His library and how dignified and honourable he is....Although he can be blunt.. he is a very manly gentleman. I could just imagine sitting round a fire talking about books as someone brought us tea and sandwiches(not forgetting cakes) . He is such a swoon worthy character!

  8. I think it is that despite his aloofness and pride, he's still honourable and willing to change for the better. That makes him a true gentleman :-)

  9. Mr Darcy is willing to change his ways for the better to win Elizabeth's approval. That what makes him a true hero for me.

  10. Mr Darcy gets things done. He is a doer who doesn't necessarily boast about what he's accomplished.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Like others, it is the epic changes he enacted in his life to prove he had learned from Lizzy's reproof.

    ReplyDelete
  12. I love the way he admits his wrongs and does everything in his power to right them. He pushes aside his own issues and decides to become a better man. Love him for it!

  13. I don't have an ereader, so I'm not entering the giveaway, but reading the description of the book made me cheer. YES! What a great plot, and (as a lover of P&P who also knows better than to want a Darcy of her own) I love the concept of perspective, Darcy to modern-day sweetie.

  14. There are too many things to like about Mr. Darcy. For the time he does a few big things to show he is a good man, going against family and society expectations, is humble enough to propose twice, change his behavior where he is found lacking.

  15. I like best that he reconsidered - he changed his ways to win her... cool!

  16. I have to read this book! It sounds wonderful! My favorite thing about Mr Darcy is how much he loves Elizabeth and wants to protect her.

  17. I just love how he swooped in and saved the day for the woman he loved. :)

  18. knowing how to say he is sorry when he was wrong :)

  19. I love that Darcy isn't actually perfect.
    He SEEMS perfect. He probably LOOKS perfect. He's logically an all-out, plain and simple CATCH.
    But he's not perfect. He has some issues -- pride, shyness/reluctance to open up to strangers (not necessarily a bad thing) ... But he knows this. And he's willing to make the effort to change for the woman who steals his heart.
    He's wonderful ...

  20. My favorite thing about Darcy is how fiercely he cares about the people in his life. Even though he made a mistake with Jane and Bingley he was trying to protect him

  21. i love Darcy's total & absolute devotion to Lizzie!!!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I love how devoted Mr. Darcy is to his family and friends.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I love his quiet intensity. I fell in love with a man of a similar disposition and scored my own Mr. Darcy!
