"...the intimate surprise between Darcy and Elizabeth at the end was just the right amount of steamy romance."

"I have not been let down by one of P O Dixon's books yet, and I look forward to seeing what this creative author comes up with next."
✿ Leatherbound Reviews


"I found To Have His Cake (and Eat it Too) to be an imaginative, emotional, and exhilarating variation of Pride and Prejudice."
✿ Austenesque Reviews

"Bewitched, Body and Soul had all the essential elements of the original Pride and Prejudice story, but at each turn it was creatively manipulated on a new path that Dixon creates. With each plot development it was interesting to see how different characters said familiar lines. Instead of a common What-If? that inserts some change and then continues forward in an alternate universe often times changing completely, this one was uniquely similar."
