Publisher's Summary

There's only one fact that notorious rake Lord Charles Carlisle and his cousin, Fitzwilliam Darcy, can agree upon: a house party given by the Marquess of Bentham is bound to be intolerably dull. To relieve his boredom, Lord Charles accepts a bet that he can seduce his sister's pretty friend during their stay at Bentham Park. After all, it's easy money for an experienced seducer. Why should he care if his staid cousin Darcy disapproves?
But when Darcy discovers that Lord Charles' new target is none other than Elizabeth Bennet, the woman who refused Darcy's offer of marriage, he cannot stand by and watch as the woman he still loves is callously ruined. What he doesn't know is that Lord Charles has a dark secret, and that his attentions to Elizabeth may not be what they seem. After a midnight rescue, clandestine meetings, a long-lost son, conspiracies, blackmail, and an attempted elopement, everyone can agree that this house party is anything but dull.

Completely worth the Money

After reading some not-at-all enjoyable P&P variations, I was skeptical of this one to say the least.
And very ready to criticize it.
But to my happy astonishment I am sad to find it over! More than anything I deeply appreciate the fact that the character of Darcy and Elizabeth were the same-they seemed to be the very same people as in Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice.
Entertaining, funny, heartbreaking, and beautiful.
So glad I decided to give it a shot.

Fun story not a strong plot

Well I love all things Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth and this story was a strong entry into alternative Austin plot lines. It had a very strong satisfying romance and well fleshed out characters. There was enough in the story to have it hold my attention and even give me some moments of anxiety but the some parts of the plot were rather thin. Most of the conflict came down to lack of communication and assumptions that seemed to be more contrived than something that real people would do. I wanted to yell - just talk to each other! The points where communication was avoided seemed to tread on friendships and trust that should have been more strongly established than they turned out to be which is sad. But overall that wasn't enough to stop it from being an enjoyable listen. In fact it will probably be something I would listen to again despite some flaws. Recommended.
