Clever and enjoyable read--different and better than most recent romances July 28 2009
By A. Mode - Published on
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.

3.5 stars and watching for her next book Oct. 11 2008
By emyln - Published on

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.

A fantastical leap of faith-- but just go with it -and enjoy! July 27 2008
By Christina Boyd @xtnaboyd - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
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!

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.

More like 4 1/2 stars.... July 27 2008
By Deborah Wiley - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
What if you could enter the pages of PRIDE AND PREJUDICE and actually live the moments? Philippa "Flip" Allison is about to find out... until it goes dreadfully wrong and she starts changing one of the greatest stories of all time!

Flip can't believe the arrogance of Magnus Knightley. Just because he's a visiting Jane Austen scholar doesn't mean he has the only "right" interpretation. After all, PRIDE AND PREJUDICE is one heck of a love story! Of course, Flip doesn't expect that her trip to the masseuse will change everything about the classic Austen novel and it's going to take Magnus and Flip working together if things have a chance of going back to normal. Will the attraction sparking between these two very different people stand a chance in the face of such a monumental literary disaster?

I didn't expect to like SEDUCING MR. DARCY. I haven't read PRIDE AND PREJUDICE since I was in sixth grade and was a little worried that my very distant memory of the tale would be insufficient to truly appreciate Gwyn Cready's story. Boy, was I ever wrong!

Gwyn Cready weaves together a scorching hot romance with a lot of insight into the continued appeal of Jane Austen's literary classic. Magnus and Flip each see something very different in PRIDE AND PREJUDICE and both love the story for their own reasons. This is perhaps one of the greatest universal truths about reading any sort of book and Gwyn Cready's incorporation of it into her tale is superb.

Magnus and Flip are seemingly complete opposites. Flip is quite earthy at times, whereas Magnus is far more uptight. The resulting class leads to some very steamy moments, particularly as the story of PRIDE AND PREJUDICE begins rewriting itself into a book in which sex is the major focus. Some of the scenes in SEDUCING MR. DARCY are nothing short of hysterical (especially some involving Flip's ex-husband, Jed).

SEDUCING MR. DARCY is a definite hit. It's hard not to be captivated by the intriguing twists to a very well known classic whether one is fan of PRIDE AND PREJUDICE or not. SEDUCING MR. DARCY is just fun!
