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.
