In this humorous modern adaptation of Pride and Prejudice,
Elizabeth Bennet is an infectious disease specialist from
California living in Vietnam. William Darcy is the CEO of
DDF (Darcy Darcy Fitzwilliam), a powerful family owned
business, which had made William a billionaire. William
travels to Vietnam with his friend, Charles Bingley, and his
sister, who hopes to adopt a child from a local orphanage.
But soon after arriving in Vietnam, Charles has a small
accident and is rushed to the hospital where Elizabeth and
William cross paths for the first time. Elizabeth is
disgusted at William's arrogant manner of barking orders at
the hospital staff, and William is offended that Elizabeth
is not intimidated by him. However, the first time William
spots Elizabeth taking a stroll on the beach, he finds
himself falling hopelessly in love. Unfortunately, for
William, Elizabeth mistakes William's concern for Charles as
romantic love and assumes Charles and William are lovers.
Although Elizabeth begins to lose her heart to William, she
believes she can never compete with Charles.
The hilarious misunderstanding with Charles is the least of
William and Elizabeth's problems. William's unsuccessful
love life has led him to believe he will never find a woman
who will ever look past his considerably large bank account.
William's demanding position at DDF and looking after his
sister Georgiana since a young age, has left William
suffering from an obsessive compulsive disorder. But William
is not the only one who has given up on love. At twenty-
eight, Elizabeth has yet to be intimate with a man. Instead,
Elizabeth's main focus is her work at the hospital. But then
Elizabeth and William meet, the barriers both have spent
years building slowly begin to crumble.
William believes he has found the only woman who has ever
truly seen past his position of CEO at DDF. Elizabeth
believes she has finally found a man she can trust with her
heart. But William and Elizabeth's relationship creates stir
among those who wish to tear them apart. William's old
enemy, George Wickham has set his sights on Elizabeth and
then plots a dangerous plan for Elizabeth's sister, Lydia,
when Elizabeth learns the truth about George's involvement
with the Darcy family. However, Elizabeth and William's
biggest obstacle to their new love is none other than
William's cousin, Anne de Bourgh, who has grown up assuming
one day she would become Mrs. Darcy. The author's portrayal
of Anne as pure evil was a stroke of genius.
Nina Benneton has taken the best elements of Jane Austen's
Pride and Prejudice and spins a tale with a delightful
modern twist, which will more than satisfy the most fickle
of Austen fans. COMPULSIVELY MR. DARCY is exquisitely
romantic. This is a tenderly written novel which would make
even Jane Austen swoon. The Lizzie Bennet and Mr. Darcy who
stole your heart in Jane Austen's novel are written to
perfection in COMPULSIVELY MR. DARCY.
For anyone obsessed with Pride & Prejudice, it's Darcy and
Elizabeth like you've never see them before!
This modern take introduces us to the wealthy philanthropist
Fitzwilliam Darcy, a handsome and brooding bachelor who
yearns for love but doubts any woman could handle his
obsessive tendencies. Meanwhile, Dr. Elizabeth Bennet has
her own intimacy issues that ensure her terrible luck with men.
When the two meet up in the emergency room after Darcy's
best friend, Charles Bingley, gets into an accident,
Elizabeth thinks the two men are a couple. As Darcy and
Elizabeth unravel their misconceptions about each other,
