My Own Mr. Darcy
September, 2013

After being dragged to the 2005 movie Pride and Prejudice by her mother, sixteen-year-old Elizabeth’s life changes when Matthew Macfadyen’s Mr. Darcy appears on the screen. Lizzie falls hard and makes a promise to herself that she will settle for nothing less than her own Mr. Darcy. This ill-advised pledge threatens to ruin any chance of finding true love. During the six intervening years, she has refused to give any interested suitors a chance. They weren’t Mr. Darcy enough.

Coerced by her roommate, Elizabeth agrees to give the next interested guy ten dates before she dumps him. That guy is Chad, a kind and thoughtful science teacher and swim coach. While she’s dating Chad, her dream comes true in the form of a wealthy bookstore owner named Matt Dawson, who looks and acts like her Mr. Darcy. Of course she has to follow her dream. But as Elizabeth simultaneously dates a regular guy and the dazzling Mr. Dawson, she’s forced to re-evaluate what it was she loved about Mr. Darcy in the first place.

Being an avid Jane Austen lover (even taken myself to her home in Bath---it was on my bucket list), I have read my share of sequels and prequels and take offs of Pride and Prejudice....your book by far, is one of the best contemporary written books I have read....so much so..that my own editor sent me an email about making my deadline to my third book....as I could not put yours down....heading off to buy The Gifted....Laurie Bumpus (aka Diane Culver)
