When William Darcy suffers a sudden health crisis, he immediately realizes two things: his sister will continue to nag him about his nonexistent social life, and he won’t stand for it. How can he possibly escape Georgiana’s good intentions or the watchful gaze of Aunt Catherine, his assigned babysitter?
Cue a midnight getaway to the tackiest place he can think of. Lounge singers, booze, and women of loose moral fiber – Las Vegas, here he comes!
Elizabeth Bennet lives a quiet life as a UNLV student and a popular cocktail waitress in one of the nicer casinos in town. Though content to see her best friend, Thad, in a blissfully happy relationship, she has no desire to complicate her own life with what will undoubtedly result in a broken heart.
Then she serves a drink to a devastatingly handsome Englishman, and all bets, as they say, are off.
This is a modern what-if of Jane Austen’s Pride & Prejudice.
It is intended for an adult audience.

“Amy George is a middle-aged woman who got rid of her old lady/grown up and has since purchased an unreasonably small car. She refuses to listen to its radio at a reasonable volume, especially when the Beastie Boys or the Violent Femmes are playing. She lives in a small town in the Midwest where the bookstore and yarn shop are neighbors and most food is fried. Her household consists of a dog, a man, a hermit, and stubborn soap scum.

She has been writing since she was a child and ran the Hyacinth Gardens, a popular but defunct JAFF site.”

Fun fact: My birthday is January 30th so this is like a big birthday party.

 

Oh I loved it.  It was an adaption of the original with a couple of characters missing and others not necessarily playing their original part, but that didn’t take away from the romance and love story of William and Elizabeth. I think the story is well written and our Lizzy and Darcy are pretty perfect.  I loved the Las Vegas and London settings, I loved the quick romance, I loved how they fought for their marriage, OH I LOVED IT ALL!! This story took us through a few trials and tribulations but in the end showed us that true love does conquer all!  A short, sweet, sexy read that will satisfy!
