Blog Tour “Mistress” by Sophia Turner + Giveaway

The title may be a bit like “whaaaaaaaaaaaat?” but it is not exactly what you think even if you can read on the cover “A Pride and Prejudice variation, with parts not suitable for those who have not reached their majority”. Said that, in case someone does not believe that note, be aware that, yes, there are sexual encounters between our protagonists.

I would like to introduce the author of Mistress, Sophie Turner:

Sophie Turner worked as an online editor before delving even more fully into the tech world. Writing, researching the Regency era, and occasionally dreaming about living in Britain are her escapes from her day job.Sophie Turner

 She was afraid of long series until she ventured upon Patrick O’Brian’s 20-book Aubrey-Maturin masterpiece, something she might have repeated five times through.

 Alas, her Constant Love series is only planned to be seven books right now, and consists of A Constant Love, A Change of Legacies, and the in-progress A Season Lost.

 She blogs about her writing endeavours at sophie-turner-acl.blogspot.com, where readers can find direction for the various social drawing-rooms across the Internet where she may be called upon.

Review

Mr. Bennet dies and then Collins is proposing to Elizabeth within the hour. She marries him, she does not have any other alternative because it is the day after the ball at Netherfield and Mr. Bingley has left the area. Elizabeth’s suffering is great indeed in every aspect of her life when married to Mr. Collins.

Darcy was far too late, or to be true, the wedding was far too soon. He has decided to be miserable because he will never love anyone else. However, fate can give you a second chance but not an easy one.

Collins dies and Elizabeth is free and Mistress of Longbourn. She does not need to worry more and she can heal her wounds now. Jane is married Bingley after all but he was a bit too late to save Lizzy.

Darcy goes back to Netherfield and he is a much in love as he was several years ago, he is still single, he cannot think about anyone else. But!! Elizabeth did not have a great opinion of him and it is not going to change easily unless he does something. He tries to help her with her state, giving advise, helping with some tenants, etc. They start a nice friendship but not everything is rainbows and butterflies even when friendship and esteem is on the way to… something more?

Elizabeth does not want to marry again, she suffered too much as a wife, especially the bed duties of a wife and she refuses to try again. However the heart is capricious and love is not rational.

After some time and after both of them have the same heart, Darcy proposes and she tells him a bit more about her marriage to Collins (she confides in him with bits and pieces during their friendship too) and why she will not marry him even if she loves him.

He is devastated, he proposes a “celibate” marriage because he cannot live without her, she refuses but eventually they reach a deal… she will be her mistress once and only once.

A lot happens next but I will not tell you more but just for you to know… spoiler alert!! there is a happy ending but… is it a celibate marriage? can Elizabeth have children because after three years with Collins she was never pregnant? can Darcy be trusted to have her once and that is? can Darcy make her trust him?

I have enjoyed this story and although on the title says that it is not for underage, I have to point out that there are a couple of words that I found a bit tasteless. I can read erotic descriptions and these ones are ok apart from the use of two words to name the male organ that I believe could have been avoided. However generally speaking the story is really good and shows Elizabeth and Darcy in a different light.

  1. Thanks for the review, Ana. The more I read about this book, the more intriguing it becomes. So, Elizabeth and Darcy become friends before becoming lovers? That’s one aspect I hadn’t realised. Looking forward to reading it. Still holding out for a giveaway win, of course, but it’s already on my Wish List if I don’t.

  2. Thanks for the review and giveaway. I didn’t know that Mr. Darcy offers her a celibate marriage. That is really touching that he loves her so much that he would be willing to do this. jadseah4 (at) yahoo

  4. Thank you for interesting review, Anadarcy! Proposal to have celibate marriage? JAFF Darcy is still capable of astonishing me with the extent of his readiness to prove his love for Elizabeth. Thanks to your review and description of what enjoyable twists of the story readers might expect I am even more intrigued and eager to read the book!

  5. Thank you for writing a detailed review. Although some do not like to read spoilers, I prefer to be spoiled just to see if there is a happy ending for one of my favourite literary couple. Loved it!
