Mr. Darcy and the former Elizabeth Bennett have been married several months, when they discover that she is expecting.  Mr. Darcy is very protective of those he loves, and Elizabeth is the number one recipient of his adoration.  The next few months finds the couple growing even closer, but their lives are not without struggles.

Loving Mr. Darcy is a true romance, because it focuses on the relationship between Darcy and Elizabeth.  The way Ms. Latham allows the relationship between Darcy and Elizabeth to evolve is wonderful and will surely induce a contented sigh from all romantics.  There are, also, some interesting romances between secondary characters, and Mary Bennett, whom I always wanted to see come into her own, gets to shine a little.  While this is a entertaining sequel to Pride and Prejudice, I fear it may be too racy for some readers.  Therefore, be warned, the intimacies between Darcy and Elizabeth do not stop at the bedroom door.  While the sex scenes are not anymore explicit than the ones seen in the average historical romance, I know that some readers prefer their sequels to be similar in nature to Pride and Prejudice.

All in all, Loving Mr. Darcy is an enjoyable sequel to Pride and Prejudice, which will satisfy most romance lovers.
