Here it is, my new novel under a new pen name. Why a pen name? Because not everyone who wants to read sweet and quirky contemporary romances will want to read Jane Austen fan fiction. However, some of you will, so I will keep you informed.
For those of you who are interested, I’m still working on Book 3 of the Love and Chocolate Series, but I was kidnapped by Darcy for a bit. Hope you don’t mind.

Here it is, my first Pride and Prejudice Variation.  It is now available on Amazon and should be on iTunes and Barnes and Noble within a week.

Darcy Unmasked:  When Fitzwilliam Darcy visits his friend at Netherfield Park, he does not expect to meet an old enemy or to fall in love.  But a Masquerade Ball changes everything.

I just finished reading Pride and All This Prejudice by Alex A. King. It is a clever retelling of Pride and Prejudice, set in modern-day Greece.

Her Mrs. Bennet (Mrs. Baros in this version) was superb. Funny, outrageous, and embarrassing. She made me laugh out loud several times, and the antagonistic relationship between Mr. and Mrs. Baros was hilarious. Not quite the Mr. and Mrs. Bennet we’re used to, but totally appropriate (and insightful) for this new version.

I loved how Mrs. Baros insisted that Jane take a nightgown rather than pajamas to Netherfield (long story) and her marriage-minded machinations were brilliant.

I also liked the way the author rewrote some of Darcy and Elizabeth’s conversations, giving them a contemporary slant.

Since this story has a modern setting, some of the characters’ language and viewpoints are modern as well — with a little earthy vulgarity, but overall the novel is sweet — definitely PG, not PG-13. I’ll gladly read this again. Well done.
