Overview

After Elizabeth Bennet refuses Mr. Darcy's offer of marriage, it takes a heavy toll on him. He withdraws to London and disappears near the docks, away from family, friends, and acquaintances. When he is mistaken for an escaped pirate, he is thrust into an adventure he would never have imagined. Will this be what he needs to forget the one woman he had come to love?

When her aunt and uncle have to cancel their plans to tour the Lake District, Elizabeth Bennet has the opportunity to sail to the Isles of Scilly with her father. After a pleasant visit, the voyage home brings storms, a shipwreck, and pirates! When she is rescued by gallant Captain Smith, she finds herself inexplicably drawn to him. What will she do when she discovers he is the very man whose offer of marriage she refused just a few months earlier?

dialog is witty and the chemistry is electric... Fitzwilliam Darcy, tormented and haunted by the indignant words of Elizabeth Bennet’s refusal of his hand, is in the depths of despair. Living in a room near the docks of London, he hasn’t shaved or trimmed his beard in almost two months. Mistaken for an escaped pirate, Darcy is taken into custody and put in a cell. Unless he can convince someone of his true identity, he could be headed for the gallows. This does lead to some tense moments and is the beginning of Darcy’s adventure… and what an adventure it is! Darcy agrees to impersonate the infamous pirate, Lockerly, to aid the police in his capture. True to character Darcy treats his crew fairly and with compassion. He inspires their respect, admiration and willingness to do anything he asks of them. Darcy hopes beyond hope that this impersonation will aid him in forgetting the woman he loves. Little does Darcy know that his wild adventure will take him directly into the path and arms of Miss Elizabeth Bennet. As fate would have it, Elizabeth Bennet and her father travel to the Isles of Scilly to visit Mr. Bennet’s ailing sister. Elizabeth enjoys visiting with her much loved cousin, Melanie, and meeting a new handsome cousin. Will David Adams be the man Elizabeth could love or will Captain Smith win her heart? But what is there about Captain Smith that seems so familiar? Much to my delight Darcy and Lizzy spend much time in the company of one. Although they are not thrown together in the beginning, as the necessary events of the story are unfolding, their first meeting is well worth the wait. The dialog is excellent and the chemistry is electric.  This book has it all…adventure, intrigue, pretense, romance, betrayal, love, even Lydia and Wickham and much, much more. The masquerade ball toward the end is exquisite!  There was nothing I did not like about Pirates and Prejudice. I have been eagerly anticipating its release since I first learned about it in September 2012. It is outstanding and lived up to my expectations. I will be reading this one again and again! Thank you, Kara Louise for another exceptional book! PG Rating for no explicit sex Originally reviewed at More Agreeably Engaged

I have now read of Kara Louise P&P reimaginings but this is the best! The transformation of Darcy from a reserved, haughty individual to a swashbuckler is so much fun. Darcy plummets to the depths of dispare and society after his failed proposal. Darcy becomes a true heroic character when faced with the facts of a "real world". Not only is this a good romantic read for those in need of an escape from their own world but it is also a study in the changes wrought on man by a life experience beyond this normal realm and the effects those changes have on the woman he loves.
