This surprisingly steamy sequel to Pride and Prejudice is the first of Lathan's fan-fiction interpretations of life after "happily ever after" for Fitzwilliam Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet. The story, which opens moments after the lavish wedding ceremony, finds the new Mr. and Mrs. Darcy nestled into a carriage bound for their honeymoon. With curious minds, hands and mouths, they while away their vacation-and the following weeks and months, as they set up house at Pemberley-relishing their privacy and delighting in their new roles as husband and wife. And when the talk grows tiresome or those hours apart unbearable, they tumble into bed-or onto a bearskin rug. Still, through the haze of wedded bliss, time marches on: to Lizzy's delight, Darcy's sister, Georgiana, returns home just as Christmas preparations are underway, but all is not calm-the marquis of Orman, whom Elizabeth first encounters at the Twelfth Night Ball, has sinister intentions. This is probably the hottest Austen sequel yet. (Mar.)Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
