4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly different Aug. 9 2016

I rated this a little higher than average because I felt it was higher than average. I have long been an Austin fan, " Pride and Prejudice" being one of my favorite novels of all. This very different take on a classic captured my attention. I would recommend it highly.

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

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
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun, "Seducing" Romp With a Twist of Austen Oct. 18 2008
By Becky at "One Literature Nut" - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
I braced myself to not like this novel, but had read previous reviews and was pretty curious. From the very beginning, the novel had a very irreverent approach to Austen, but in some ways, not as directly as I thought. The novel is really more about Flip (Phillipa), who has a little (okay, not so little...) fantasy encounter with Mr. Darcy during a massage appointment. She later finds that it wasn't just a dream, and that it is having dramatic affects on the entire beloved tale, Pride and Prejudice. The story doesn't try to change the original, in fact, Flip's not interested in bagging Mr. Darcy (thank goodness), or even changing the story (thank goodness again); in reality, Flip has to fix what her fantasy started, and finds a handsome scholar to help her do so.

I thoroughly enjoyed the storytelling and writing in Cready's novel, and have to give it to her for daring to even touch such an iconic story. Cready's approach is bawdy, and pretty licentious in places, but was a fun romp through Austen, and a good romance overall. I laughed out loud, and often...what more can I say?
4.0 out of 5 stars Great Book Sept. 11 2009

I loved this book! Why? Besides all the wit and humor, it had the most creative storyline I've read in a while. Flip and Magnus made a great couple, both are intelligent quirky and very likeable characters. And like the book they are trying to save, (Pride And Prejudice) at first they do not like each other, but soon their attraction grows and you are rooting for them to get together. I highly recommend this book.
