Taking it off in the name of historyâ€¦
Thirty-five-year-old American social media master Vanessa
Roberts lives her thoroughly modern life with aplomb. So
when her elderly Jane Austenâ€“centric aunt needs her to take
on the public relations for Julian Chancellor, a very
private man from England whoâ€™s written a book called My
Year as Mr. Darcy, Vanessa agrees. But sheâ€™s not
â€śexcessively diverted,â€ť as Jane Austen would say.
Hardbound books, teacups, and quill pens fly in the face of
her e-reader, coffee, and smartphoneâ€¦
â€¦Until she sees Julian take his tight breeches off for his
Undressing Mr. Darcy show, an educational â€śstripteaseâ€ť down
to his drawers to promote his book and help save his
crumbling estate. The public relations expert suddenly
realizes things have gottenâ€¦personal. But can this
old-fashioned man claim her heart without so much as a GPS?
It will take three festivals filled with Austen fans, a trip
to England, an old frenemy, and a flirtatious pirate
re-enactor to find outâ€¦

Re: Undressing Mr. Darcy
Yes I'd love to go to a undressing Mr Darcy party...I love to see Ryan Reynolds as Mr. Darcy!!!!

Colin Firth is the ultimate Mr. Darcy!
(Kathy Sullivan 11:08am December 9, 2013)
Please don't shoot me, but I've never read a Jane Austen book before. I'm really out of the loop, as far as reading goes, and have been trying to play catch-up. Your book really peaked my interest, and actually made my day!! I think a Mr. Darcy undressing show would be quite interesting, and Johnny Depp would have my first vote, then Robert Downey Jr. Since you're in the Jane Austen Society, I think I'm going to have to look up your books to get my feet wet, so to speak. Congratulations on your book, and have a Merry Christmas, and the best in the New Year!!

If Colin Firth was Mr. Darcy, count me in!
(Abby Thorne 11:48am December 9, 2013)
Colin Firth is always a good choice, but what about Jason
Statham? I wouldn't mind doing "research" with him modeling
the regency style menswear.
(LaRonda Atchison 12:31pm December 9, 2013)
That is a fun idea. How about a show with all Jane Austen heroes.
(Maureen Emmons 1:00pm December 9, 2013)
I guess it really would depend upon who was undressing.
(Kim V 1:34pm December 9, 2013)
Definitely want to see Mr. Darcy...but I would not mind a few Regency-dressed hotties such as Henry Cavill, Ian Somerhalder, and Chris Hemsworth!
(Sandy Kenny 2:03pm December 9, 2013)
So Orlando Bloom might not be Darcy, but he would be smashing in an historical undressing show.
(Anna Mekus 2:35pm December 9, 2013)
Not sure who I would want to see historical undressing but a
fun idea! maybe Robert Downey Jr. :)
(Dianne McVetty 2:41pm December 9, 2013)
Sounds like a good book. I have your other one, Definitely Not Mr. Darcy, and I'd love to win this one. I'd watch the undressing if it was on T.V.
(Michelle Fidler 2:53pm December 9, 2013)
I always thought Davy Crockett was probably an imposing, handsome, adventurous guy. So, I would want to go to an undressing party for him. Wonder what he wore under those buckskins?
(Sandy Fielder 3:01pm December 9, 2013)
Hmm not sure but I would love to see Gerard Butler strip down to his underwear
(Vickie Schultz 3:53pm December 9, 2013)
I have always loved Mr. Darcy and your book sounds so delightful. Love to win it.
(Nancy Wolfe 4:13pm December 9, 2013)
Your book sounds like such fun! I'd definitely go to an undressing Mr. Darcy party. LOL
(Marcy Shuler 4:42pm December 9, 2013)
Well, if we were to have an undressing party and I were to choose a historical fiction figure I would have to say Rhett Butler!I would enjoy such a party for sure!
(Vennie Martinisi 5:16pm December 9, 2013)
This is way out in left field for me......I don't know who I'd like to see undressed but I think I'll go with Michael Caine. I've loved him since Alfie and always will.
(Susan Coster 5:42pm December 9, 2013)
I would choose Chris Hemsworth or Johnny Depp for my choice in getting undressed (gotta have some eye-candy) at this PARTY! I better bring a fan! I love your book cover.
(Linda Luinstra 6:02pm December 9, 2013)
I would have a blast and of course George Clooney is my take it off man
he is so sexy can you blame me
(Michelle Dodd 6:38pm December 9, 2013)
Book sounds great, not to sure I'd like to attend an undressing.
(Sheila True 10:08pm December 9, 2013)
Hugh Jackman for the undressing of Mr. Darcy. He has sideburns.
(Kai Wong 10:14pm December 9, 2013)
So many images popped into my head when I read the title for this book. :)~
(Callie Stuck 10:24pm December 9, 2013)
Would have to say Colin Firth.
(Leslie Davis 10:33pm December 9, 2013)
Oh my! Where is my fan when I need to hide my red face? Would I like to see Mr. Darcy take off his historically accurate clothing? Um, well, yes! Colin Firth is still my go to guy for the role, though!
(Marcia Berbeza 10:33pm December 9, 2013)
Yes... But I would be blushing up a storm! I'll go with a Mr. Darcy and say Matthew Macfadyen :-)
(Chelsea Brooks 11:41pm December 9, 2013)
sounds like a good read. Having just watched Olympus has
Fallen I think Gerald Butler
(Susan Meikle 8:38am December 10, 2013)
What a wonderful occasion to attend. I was in Bath years ago
and loved the area.
I need to re-read these books.
Appreciate the giveaway.
(Leona Olson 9:57am December 10, 2013)
I'd be up for an educational show as well. Do we have to
stick with one model??
