Book Description

July 29 2008
In the second hilarious and sexy novel from author Gwyn Cready, a divorcée suffering from "carnal deprivation" has a racy one-night stand with one of literature's most irresistible heroes -- and learns that you really can't judge a book by its cover.

Mr. Darcy just isn't Flip Allison's style. She prefers novels with hot sex on the bathroom sink to the mannerly, high-tension longing of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice. That is, until she pays a visit to Madame K, who promises a therapeutic massage with an opportunity to "Imagine Yourself in Your Favorite Book." Somehow, on the way to a sizzling sink-top session with a Venetian Adonis, Flip lands right in the middle of Regency England -- and dangerously close to handsome Mr. Darcy. So close, in fact, that she discovers a side of him even Jane Austen couldn't have imagined.

Waking from her massage, Flip is on top of the world and ready for her upcoming book club -- that is, until she notices a new scene in which Darcy and spunky heroine Lizzy Bennet are arguing over...Flip Allison? Her rapturous liaison with Darcy has had disastrous consequences for Austen's characters -- not to mention millions of Pride and Prejudice fans! Flip has twenty-four hours to put the story back on course, and Magnus Knightley, a sexy but imperious scholar whose brooding good looks and infuriating arrogance are decidedly Darcy-like, is the only one who can help. The only problem is, Flip can't keep her hands off him, either....

4.0 out of 5 stars Clever and enjoyable read--different and better than most recent romances July 28 2009
By A. Mode - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I decided to read this book after seeing that it is the 2009 RITA award winner of Best Paranormal Romance. "Pride and Prejudice" is my favorite book so I was a biased reader almost daring Cready to offend me. Not only was I not offended by Cready's imaginative use of Mr. Darcy, I was pleased to discover that Cready must love Darcy as much as the rest of us.

This book has all the elements I expect to find in a really good romance novel--believable dialogue, interesting characters fleshed out beyond sterotypes, tightly wound plotting. But it has some nice surprises too-- wicked humor, clever conflict and situations, juxtaposition of Regency and contemporary romance, and, most importantly, an atypical hero and heroine that seem both real and likable.

The only reason that I did not give five stars was because my "willing suspension of disbelief" was stretched a bit during the metaphysical aspects of the plot. But this is paranormal romance so I can forgive Cready's bold jump given that "Seducing Mr. Darcy" does everything else exactly right.

Do yourself a favor and read this book. You will find it a welcome respite from everything you have read lately.

3.0 out of 5 stars 3.5 stars and watching for her next book Oct. 11 2008

This was an enjoyable read. The Premise was fun and different, getting a massage and being transported into a book and "changing" the story. But things go very wrong and when Allison awakes, she finds that the actual book is being re-written based on her experiences.

Naturally she has to try and rectify this along with the unwanted help from a current day professor of literature. Fun ensures.

I can't say that I'm now a devoted reader of Gwyn Cready, her writing style is still a little unpolished and her plot lines could be tighter. For example little knowledge is given to the person giving the massage and we just take it on faith that its there to make the story work instead of woven into the story. Still, very innovative and I will definitely check out her next book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastical leap of faith-- but just go with it -and enjoy! July 27 2008
By Christina Boyd @xtnaboyd - Published on Amazon.com

The cover is definitely a bodice ripper of the highest caliber and so is the story. That said, it is deliciously angsty and Darcy is all you desire him to be. The book is about a divorced woman,Philippa (Flip,) who hasn't had any action since her husband left her over two years prior, and (okay here is where you must take a fantastical leap of faith -- just go with it!) gets this therapeutic massage that sopposedly transports your imagination into your favorite book. Yet, instead of transporting Flip into her current racy bodice ripping romance novel, she finds herself in Regency England in the company of Mr. Darcy pre-Pride & Prejudice. After waking from her massage (and an explicit encounter with Mr. Darcy in a Grecian folly) she finds later in spotting a 1st edition P&P on display at her university library, that certain important passages are changed -- like the proposal turned argument at Hunsford with Elizabeth and Darcy is about her, Philippa! So she must discover a way to correct the chain of events she has unwittingly altered. I am terribly loyal to Darcy and Elizabeth, together... but I liked this character, Philippa, so much, I sheepishly must admit, I kind of liked Darcy with her... very much... Surely, this isn't some great literary work of Jane Austen (just look at the cover) but I believe you will enjoy it. If the cover embarrasses you too much to read in company, well fold it back and tell those that have their sensibilites easily affected to kindly, "Avert your eyes." Ha! It's remarkably well-written -- and it showed Darcy prior to meeting Elizabeth in Hertfordshire and how he might have behaved amongst his peers. He is just a man afterall. A smokin' hot man! And in not wanting to give too much of the story away, the Darcy-like man & Austen expert, Magnus, who helps Philippa right this wrong, well, I think he is a keeper, too; he "almost" eclipses Mr. Darcy. Enjoy!

3.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyed it but can`t say I would recommend it Sept. 17 2009

I am a huge P&P fan & it was fun to see more on my favorite characters, but I almost hated to see them all be so silly as was depicted in this book. I am glad I read it, but I`m not sure I would recommend it to anyone else. But if you keep in mind it`s just a farce & not intended to be thought provoking, you might enjoy it.

3.0 out of 5 stars okay June 20 2013

There are many times I have read a book that I wished I could go in and change the outcome. For me taking a classic such Pride and Prejudice, and changing it. I guess this story did answer the authors question of "What if?". For me, I realized there is some better not wondering about, so this book did teach that about myself. Read it and find out if you like it.
