I enjoyed Forever Yours by Robin M. Helm. This is the third and final book in the Yours by Design series. Beware! This is a continuing storyline, and you need to read Accidentally Yours (Bk 1) and Sincerely Yours (Bk 2) before reading Forever Yours. But lucky you, they are all out now so you can read them all without having to wait!!
They say history repeats itself and in this case it does…or close to it! I liked the clever way Ms. Helm modernized certain events from Regency Pride & Prejudice to fit into the present day. Because in the 21st century, who would care if Lydia and Wickham ran off and eloped?!
The story begins in Book 1 with Fitzwilliam Darcy and Will Darcy suffering an accident at the same time…only 200 years apart, and during the accident they switch places. Fitzwilliam wakes up in a modern hospital not understanding modern technology, and Will finds himself in Kent, 1795, Rosings Park.
As the story progresses, and the excitement builds, I found that the switching back and forth between centuries and men began to wear on me. It broke the flow of the story way too much for me. There are two different stories going on here; Will in the 1800s and Fitzwilliam in the 21st century. I really feel like maybe it would have been better to write two books - one for each man.
It's interesting how the character development throughout the books changed my opinion of them. For example, I did not like Fitzwilliam in the first book. At all. But by the third book, he was as I liked him to be. I felt the same about Lance Bingley. I felt he was just plain rude in the beginning.
My favorites from the Regency period were Colonel Fitzwilliam and Mrs. Bennet. I was surprised by Mrs. Bennet. She was much kinder, and she really cared about Elizabeth.
I enjoyed Forever Yours! In the end, the stories wrap up nicely, with much excitement in both centuries!
