Overview

A pun-filled tale featuring Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice characters with some added or addled, missing or missish, modified or mortified, healthier, wealthier, or wiser. Impeccable comportment is mandatory in Regency England, a society governed by strict rules of conduct. Perfectionist Fitzwilliam Darcy, heir to an august ancestral estate, is the epitome of an unimpeachable gentleman, at least until...

Our hero's immaculate image is somewhat tarnished when he and his traveling companions arrive, hot and sweaty, at Pemberley and decide to take a fateful plunge into a scummy pond. An embarrassing encounter on the estate's lawn leaves a long-lasting impression on Jane and Elizabeth Bennet, who are new acquaintances of Georgiana and Anna Darcy.

With both families in London for the Little Season, Darcy finds himself thrown again into the path of perky Elizabeth Bennet; but a handsome army officer just might blockade further advances.

This romantic comedy is a lighthearted adaptation of Pride and Prejudice, featuring a softer, sweeter, sillier side of Austen's beloved characters.

Meet the Author

J. Marie Croft, a Nova Scotia resident and avid reader all her life, discovered Jane Austen’s works later than others but made up for lost time by devouring the six novels and as many adaptations and sequels as she could find. In her spare time, when not working at a music school or on a wooded trail enjoying her geocaching hobby, she listens to the voices in her head and captures their thoughts and words in writing. Her stories are lighthearted, and her motto is Miss Austen’s own quote, “Let other pens dwell on guilt and misery.” She is a member of the Jane Austen Society of North America (Canada) and admits to being “excessively attentive” to the 1995 BBC version of Pride and Prejudice.

    Hilarious!

    This book made me laugh from the beginning. It wasn't pure P&P; except for the characters names and homes (and Elizabeth and Darcy falling in love), it really bore very little resemblance to Jane Austen's classic. Puns and word play was used through the entire book. Sometimes it was downright silly, but I still chuckled. I was also please to note that the authro did not totally ignore the laws of propriety that the time period followed, although some of the characters tried to... No explicit love scenes, but there was tension. All in all, a fun book.
