There's no place for pride in this Austen misadventure.
Chloe Parker was born two centuries too late. A
thirty-nine-year-old divorced mother, she runs her own
antique letterpress business, is a lifelong member of the
Jane Austen Society, and gushes over everything Regency. But
her business is failing, threatening her daughter's future.
What's a lady to do?
Why, audition for a Jane Austen-inspired TV show set in
England, of course.
What Chloe thinks is a documentary turns out to be a reality
dating show set in 1812. Eight women are competing to snare
Mr. Wrightman, the heir to a gorgeous estate, along with a
$100,000 prize. So Chloe tosses her bonnet into the ring,
hoping to transform from stressed-out Midwest mom to genteel
American heiress and win the money. With no cell phones,
indoor plumbing, or deodorant to be found, she must tighten
her corset and flash some ankle to beat out women younger,
more cutthroat, and less clumsy than herself. But the witty
and dashing Mr. Wrightman proves to be a prize worth
winning, even if it means the gloves are off...
