Jane Austen | Romance

A sexy, bold adaptation of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice that re-paints favorite characters in twenty-first century colors

Judge Fitzwilliam Darcy, a legal expert on both sides of the Atlantic, is ready to hang up his black robe and return to the life of a country gentleman—until he meets Elizabeth Bennet, a fresh-faced attorney with a hectic schedule and no time for the sexy but haughty judge.

Tempers and sparks fly in Judge Darcy's courtroom— and outside, in a series of chance encounters that give each of them pause—as the two match wits and try to fight their overwhelming attraction. When they meet up in England at an international law conference, they embark on a hot, heavy affair. Back in the States, though, ethical considerations intrude, and each is subjected to a torturous period of soul-searching before they can find their way back to each other...

Re: The Trials Of The Honorable F. Darcy

Elizabeth Bennet, was and is independent and strong. She would fit well in 2009.

How I'm looking forward to read this book !!! Congrats ;-)

Great insight into such a classic! Thank you!

I think that is why Jane Austen's books are still popular today. She truly understood how people were and why they sometimes acted the way they did (well, after awhile in Darcy's case anyway!).

I'm not sure I identify with any particular character but enjoy the fact that all the 'heroes' and 'heroines' are not prefect by any means!

I identify with Lizzie.

Vikki Parman 11:28am October 15, 2009)

I identify most with Elizabeth Bennett. I believe she was a forward thinker for a woman in her during her time, and certainly she was going to marry for true love.

I am almost afraid to admit I have never read Jane Austin's Pride and Prejudice...my sister reads all these posts and she is going to yell at me so loud!To make up for it, I promise to read "The Trial of The Honorable F. Darcy". I like how it sounds.
(

I love Elizabeth & Darcy in P&P too. It's a grand escape to read Jane Austen's work. That is why they are all so popular & updated today. No recession or job losses, depressing news.
(
Donna Petrilla 2:18pm October 15, 2009)

I think I probably identify with Jane. Shy, laid-back, unruffled. Im looking forward to reading your book.
(
Theresa Buckholtz 3:01pm October 15, 2009)

Elizabeth, of course! Your book sounds wonderful.
(
G S Moch 3:30pm October 15, 2009)

Great post! I identified with Elizabeth most because she was such a strong character. She was honest and loyal which are characters I admire greatly.
(
Cherie Japp 3:47pm October 15, 2009)

I can identify with Elizabeth; she was certainly a woman before her time.

Thanks!
(
Tracey Dent 3:59pm October 15, 2009)

For some reason Jane Austen is still really popular today!
(
Brenda Rupp 4:04pm October 15, 2009)

I would love to imagine that I'm
like Elizabeth Bennett, but I
think I'm most like Eleanor
Dashwood.
(
Margay Roberge 4:32pm October 15, 2009)

I identify with Elizabeth. Thanks for the great post - I've enjoyed reading about your book on the blogs.
(
Cheryl Snyder 4:58pm October 15, 2009)

Congrats on the release of your book! I can't wait to read it and I love the cover. I always liked Anne Elliot. And really, most of Elizabeth's family was very interesting and had so many humorous touches.
(
Julie Holden 6:16pm October 15, 2009)

Your book sounds Great!!
(
Robin McKay 6:44pm October 15, 2009)

I identify with Elizabeth. She's feisty and independant. Just my kind of heroine.
(
Shelley Munro 11:32pm October 15, 2009)

I love Elizabeth's sense of humor and independence and I can identify with her for that.
(
Mona Cunningham 3:43am October 16, 2009)

I'd have to say Elizabeth as well because she was definitely a woman ahead of her time. Strong, fierce,loyal and I look forward to reading your book. Congrats on the release.

I am a dedicated 'Austenite'. Elizabeth Bennett is my favorite Austen woman. She gets Darcy after all.
(

How life would be so simple-or would it really be- Just different-

Mrs bernard Yavitch 11:24am October 16, 2009)

I guess Elizabeth - I like her spunk. I, too, wouldn't have put up wtih Darcy's snobbery. She definitely has some great comebacks.

Although I am also very fond of Anne Elliot in Persuasion (I love that book and the movie as well!) I think Anne had a lot of spunk as she got older (as I have found out I have). I especially like how she got her "voice" in the end and went for what she really wanted.

Josie Roetemeyer 4:32pm October 16, 2009)

Sounds like a very creative premise. I'm an advocate of using bits of dreams, no matter how unusual - I once dreamt of Vin Diesel on a ladder, and I don't even like his movies. It turned into a scene.
(
Maya Missani 10:02pm October 16, 2009)

I relate more to Elizabeth!
(
Lisa Glidewell 11:51pm October 16, 2009)

I love Pride and Prejudice and I relate so
well to her characters!
