Highwaymen, a mysterious hero and a case of mistaken identity…
After visiting her aunt and uncle in London, Elizabeth Bennet is traveling back home to Longbourn with her sister, Jane. A broken wheel has extended their journey but they do not wish to spend the night at an inn and choose to travel into the night instead—a decision that nearly costs them as they encounter highwaymen on the road!
A dark stranger comes to their rescue just in time. He is clearly a gentleman, but not one either of the sisters has seen before. He escorts Elizabeth and Jane to their home and disappears into the night. But who was he?
At home, the sisters discover that the nearby estate of Netherfield has recently been let by a wealthy gentleman. Could he have been their saviour? The description of this 'Mr. Bingley' does not sound entirely accurate to Elizabeth, but who else could the mystery man have been?
Rescued by Mr. Darcy is a full-length, sweet and clean regency romance novel that is suitable for all lovers of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice.

simple, clean and enticing story
The story began with the 2 eldest Bennett daughters being robbed by highway men and saved by a stranger, which they initially assumed was Mr Bingley. After, it follows some parts of the original P & P story upto the Netherfield Ball. The story is mostly on EB's perspective. I love how the story flowed. it was easy to read and very simple. it didnn't add scenes or words that makes the story unwarrantedly long. I also loved that Mary had a good ending in the story. On the negative side, there were very few grammatical errors. FD also in this story is slightly an undecided and unromantic man (seems out of character from the original). I also feel it was EB who caused the proposal to happen (though it was stated his reason, what was he really waiting for???).
Overall, I loved this variation and recommend for P & P variation fans.
