Book Synopses From Goodreads

Imagine that Jane Austen had written the opening line of her satirical novel Pride and Prejudice this way: "It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a good romp and a good wife — although not necessarily from the same person or from the opposite sex." In Pride and Prejudice: Hidden Lusts Mr. Darcy has never been more devilish and the seemingly chaste Elizabeth never more turned on.

The entire cast of characters from Austen's classic is here in this rewrite that goes all the way. This time Mr. Bingley and his sister both have designs on Mr. Darcy's manhood; Elizabeth's bff Charlotte marries their family's strange relation and stumbles upon a secret world of feminine relations more to her liking; and, in this telling, men are not necessarily the the only dominating sex. And of course there's some good old fashioned bodice ripping that shows no pride or prejudice and reveals hot hidden lusts in every page-turning chapter.

My Thoughts

I first saw this cover in my friend's goodreads page. She had been bragging on and on about Pride and Prejudice: Hidden Lusts, and how erotic it was. First I thought Pride and Prejudice and erotic this two thing in one sentence! Sumi, you have finally lost it. But now that I have read it I must agree this was indeed one the erotic reads ever and absolutely beautiful adaptation on Austin's world. 

Jane Austin's Pride and Prejudice is second my second favorite in Austin's book. But Pride and Prejudice: Hidden Lusts tops them all and I will read it again and again. I think Ms Szereto has made Pride and Prejudice: Hidden Lusts into one of my guilty pleasure.

Knowing most of the characters from the original books and all the P&P movies, I had a pretty good idea about the story line and the characters. I think Ms Szereto did a brilliant job staying true to the original storyline in spite of all the sexy action which I through fully enjoyed while reading.

When I was reading the book Keira Knightley and Matthew Macfadyen keep popping up in my head every time Mr Darcy had his beseechers off!

Pride and Prejudice: Hidden Lusts is an wonderful creation by Mitzi Szereto. Recommended to readers who loves erotic novels. Not for the faint hearted.

There is also a trailer for this book, check it out.
