Jane Austen’s Gentlemen

Colin Firth as Mr. Darcy

Every week, I pick one person who has commented on any of my postings here, or on Facebook, Twitter, or Pinterest and they win a surprise giveaway. Who will it be this week?

To start the ball rolling (and to celebrate the 200th anniversary of Pride and Prejudice’s publication), I would like to know which Jane Austen hero makes you swoon? Mr Darcy? Captain Wentworth? Mr Collins? (only kidding on that last one!) For me, it’s Mr. Darcy – and the definitive Mr. Darcy is, and always will be, Colin Firth.

So Ladies, how about you? Keep the conversation going by leaving a comment with the name of the Jane Austen hero you would love to dance with at your next ball! Or you can talk to me  on Facebook, on Twitter, or on Pinterest.

P.S. Don’t forget about my ONE DAY special offer on the Tea at Pemberley Charm necklace!  Get this charming Pride and Prejudice charm necklace (a great Valentine’s Day gift for any Austen fan!)  for $24 (regular price $42).


About Ciarrai

Hi. My name is Kerry but here online I tend to go by the Gaelic version of my name, Ciarrai. I am a woman in my mid-30's who lives on Long Island, NY, with my husband, Rob, several guitars, a Nikon D40, more yarn, beads and books than I care to admit to and a cat who has a million nicknames and quite a few theme songs. I have a B.A. in Psychology and have recently returned to college to pursue a teaching degree so that I can eventually get a job as a High School English teacher. In addition to my major obsessions (Reading, Beading, Knitting, Music and Photography), I also enjoy playing Board Games, going to Renaissance Faires, Museums and Broadway Musicals.

    Hi I’m thinking about it, and i dare say that the one that I prefer the most is surely Mr. Bingley he is so sweet naive and generous that i cannot resist to his charm.. but i would like to dance with Mr Willoughby too, he is the typical bad guy to whom no one can resist XD

    • Ciarrai says:

      I can definitely see what you mean about Willoughby. Out of all the Austen “bad boys” he is the most sympathetic and he certainly was charming (at least, he was at first).

      • 6selenia9 says:

        Yes surely after all the things he does i should hate him but ,you know, sometimes I have this kind of self-defeating feelings, so i cannot hate him even if he is an asshole XD

      • Ciarrai says:

        I think the thing that really makes a difference with Willoughby is that we know he did come to care for Maryanne – that it wasn’t all a lie. The fact that his own bad choices causes him to suffer too redeems him a bit. Unlike someone like Wickham who is just slime through and through.

  2. I go back and forth between Mr. Darcy and Mr. Knightley. This may be because I have a thing for both Colin Firth and Jonny Lee Miller… 🙂

    • Ciarrai says:

      Ooo! I didn’t know that Jonny Lee Miller played Mr. Knightly. The only film version of Emma I ever saw (besides Clueless which does and doesn’t count at the same time was the one with Jeremy Northam as Knightly. I have loved Jeremy Northam since Gosford Park and An Ideal Husband but as someone who is still mourning the loss of Eli Stone, I must check out the version with JLM.

  3. Nikki O'Shea says:

    oh, i think my first love is mr. darcy, though mr. knightly is pushing his way forward (I JUST finished reading Emma for the first time). so far, the only thing that makes darcy first is that i have to agree with Ciarrai about colin firth. 😀 😀 😀

    • Ciarrai says:

      Wow! I wasn’t expecting all the Mr. Knightly love. I have always found him a little too paternal and correcting to be a romantic lead. Like I said before, my heart belongs to Darcy but if I had to choose my second favorite, I would pick Captain Wentworth!
