More About Seducing Mr. Darcy by Gwyn Cready
In the second hilarious and sexy novel from author Gwyn Cready, a divorcee 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....

Pride and Prejudice purists may want to reach for their smelling salts, but there's sexy fun to be had in Gwyn Cready's time-traveling take on Jane Austen's classic tale in Seducing Mr. Darcy. With the famous story as the selection for her next book club meeting, Flip Allison has P&P on the brain. She has a common complaint too: Darcy is hot, the love story is riveting, but where's the, um, physical stuff? A bad day, including an embarrassing meeting with Austen expert Magnus Knightly, sends her to an massage therapist who encourages Flip to immerse herself in her favorite book during the treatment. Flip imagines she has known Darcy for yearsincluding in a physical wayand her "dream" causes changes to the text of the real book. Returning it to the original version requires contact with the sexy and infuriating Knightly, and their efforts to rectify matters create other complications. It's fun, it's fantasy and it's a new way to look at the old story that ends as all stories of this type do (thank goodness): with a happily ever after.
