335 pages
Published November 1st 2010 by Rhemalda Publishing
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. The immaculate image of perfectionist Fitzwilliam Darcy 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 Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, featuring a softer, sweeter, sillier side of Austen's beloved characters.

  1. The new cover doesn't really match the light-hearted summary of the book, but it sounds like a cute plot! Looking forward to reading it.

  2. The cover is great! I'm interested to see what differences there are from P&P, it amazes me how many variations authors have come up with.

  3. Hello, Misty and The Book Rat readers.
    Might I sneak in here and make a SLIGHT adjustment? The title of my soon-to-be-released novel is ‘Love at First Slight’ not Love at First Sight. No big deal … just, perhaps, a slight oversight.

    1. Eeep! Totally read it wrong in the email from Rhemalda! Fixing now. =D

  4. I agree with PaceLuvr that the cover seems very serious for such a whimsical sounding tale.

  5. the cover is interesting......i like it.......

    thank you for the giveaway!!

  6. The cover looks like it's a very serious, historical type of book. But I like it.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  7. The cover does look so rich and beautiful but I'd love to see the tables turned and Darcy trying to make a good impression on Lizzie from the beginning! I think I'm adding a couple of shelves to my TBR book case with all this Austen goodness!


  8. The new cover is GORGEOUS! I love the framed title and how cute Darcy's lips are! HAHAHEHA :3

  9. A lighthearted P&P retelling sounds lovely right about now.

  10. A serious cover for a sillier version - so much better than a silly cover

  11. I love cover that displays art, but if this is a humorous take on P&P, it doesn't send that message. I would love to read a pun filled P&P. Thanks for the giveaway opportunity.

  12. I think the new take of P&P sounds cute!

  13. The new cover looks cleaner and more pleasing to my eye.

  14. Looking at the cover I do wonder who it is a portrait of. Attention getting for me.

  15. I love the cover! He looks like David Tennant!

  16. I love the new cover better than the first one. It's more traditional looking with the portrait of a man from Jane Austen's era and straightaway I can guess it from historical fiction genre.


Tell me all your thoughts.
Let's be best friends.
