Our Rating
4 Teacups / 2 Handcuffs*

. . . of most interest to Bennet was Mr. Darcy of Pemberley.

When Fitzwilliam Darcy attends the Meryton assembly, he befriends a quiet, intelligent gentleman. In frequent visits to his friend’s home, he becomes acquainted with the Bennet family of Longbourn. Yet Mr. Darcy is distracted by a strange feeling of having met some of them before.

This is a different Bennet family from the cleverly crafted one in Jane Austen’s Pride & Prejudice. This Mr. Bennet is a responsible gentleman who takes an active role in the education and upbringing of all five of his daughters, manages Longbourn to be prosperous, and displays loving guidance toward Mrs. Bennet-a gentle, caring mother and wife.

There is a mystery lurking at Longbourn-a secret unknown even to Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy is entangled in its extraordinary revelations.

Who is Thomas Bennet?

The Angel Sees Grey: Pleasure & Punishment for Mr. Darcy by: Enid Wilson

A steamy, bold and erotic paranormal story that re-paints Jane Austen’s characters in urban fantasy colours.

When avenging angel Elizabeth mistakenly whips one honest billionaire Darcy on earth because she confuses the colour of grey and charcoal, her boss sent her down from heaven as a punishment to serve Darcy for one earth life.

Darcy wakes up to find himself with wounds possibly sustained in a kinky sex game he has no memory of. When Nurse Bennet arrives, looking similar to the woman he last remembers before his injury, Darcy suddenly develops lusty thoughts about his private nurse. With the power struggle in heaven between two gods and his nude photo in the tabloid, Darcy finds himself wanting to get Elizabeth in his bed and deal her all sort of kinky punishment.

Does Darcy only lust after Elizabeth or does he have deeper feeling for her? Will the dark forces push Darcy to his beastly urges and hurt Elizabeth?

Warning: This title contains explicit sexual content, angels, demons, BDSM, whips, ropes, hot wax and a bit of mystery. It is not suitable for Jane Austen’s purists.

Consequences by: C.P. Odom

Consequences is a cautionary tale about the evils of hasty judgment, revisiting Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice and one of those pivotal moments when Elizabeth Bennet throws away Mr. Darcy’s offer of marriage so decisively. What transpires from that point is well known to Austen’s extensive readership, but what if even one element in the chain of events in her novel turns out differently? Does Austen’s happy ending eventually come to pass, or is the outcome more bleak?

And if, in order to secure financial security for her loved ones, Elizabeth does not reject Darcy, is she married to a proud, arrogant, disdainful man who, as she feared, forces her to deny her own relatives and thus condemns her to a lifetime of misery? Or does she find herself married to a man who cares enough for her to reject the opposition of his family and chance his very standing in society in order to marry a woman he loves beyond measure?

Consequences, written by the author of A Most Civil Proposal, explores two alternate realities—both tragedy and triumph.

A contemporary retelling of Pride & Prejudice by New York Times bestselling author H.M. Ward and L.G. Castillo.

The prideful will fall to ruin.

Their prejudice will be their undoing.

And William Darcy will be the first to fall, Beth is certain of that.
