This has several scenes of explicit sexual content of the dominant-submissive variety. You can stop reading this review right now and avoid this book if that's objectionable to you. It is worth noting that is is far from hard-core BDSM, though it's certainly within the borders of BDSM.

It has a slight similarity to Pride and Prejudice and Zombies in that you'll find virtually the entire text of Pride and Prejudice with an additional storyline added. The differences are that, in this case, the add

This is divided into two parts - the first part starts with Lizzie visiting her friend Charlotte Collins. There is then a flashback to the initial meeing of Lizzie and Darcy, then continues in the present stream of the story to jump back in time again. If you haven't read Pride and Prejudice, these flashbacks may be helpful for you. The second part is a continual timeline. In between scenes there are some bits of "training" in sexual encounters. These include as punishment some bondage (hands ti ...more

Ms. Austen’s fantastic story and Ms. Brown’s sensual additions have me daydreaming of Fitzwilliam Darcy, a name that brings many a woman the most pleasurable thoughts. The sensual additions to the story are very well done and in places that make sense. Lizzy and Darcy are brought to a new dimension in this story. Yes, I wanted more of their alone time…

I received a complimentary copy from the author.

My initial thought was that this was just another attempt to turn my absolute favorite story into pure smut. Not that I wouldn't be interested in what goes on behind Darcy and Elizabeth's door. I've read a few books from other authors who did just that but their story fell flat.
I absolutely loved this story. The author wonderfully merged her ideas with the original plot, which made for a delightful read. The idea that Darcy has a penchant for BDSM wasn't surprising. I loved reading his POV. I co

Pride, Prejudice & Wicked Pleasure (PPWP) was OK. The new portions of the story were pretty good, but there was just so much of the original Pride and Prejudice transcribed into this story. I found myself skipping over multiple sections because I’ve read Pride and Prejudice enough times to know exactly what was written.

I needed to go back and re-read several passages as well. In what I’m assuming was an attempt to capture Jane Austen’s writing style, the author utilized a plethora of lengthy sen

I'm not that keen on Pride and Prejudice variations as a rule but I downloaded a sample of this by accident, started reading and was hooked. It is very cleverly done and I think true to the original characters. I've always thought there was a lot of sexual tension under the surface of the original and this variation makes sense of that. It also manages to do it by introducing only one extra main character. ...more

Excellent mix of historical romance and steam

I very much enjoyed the story of Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth. It was both steamy and humorous with unexpected plot twists that moved the story along quite effectively. The only element detracting from its excellence was the language of the exchanges between character which were often difficult to comprehend in the author's effort to make it historically realistic .

This was a clever blend of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice and Em Brown's "little extra something", producing an interesting and witty novel. This is only Book 1 and I am eagerly looking forward to further instalments as it ends with a cliff-hanger. This novel was well worth the read, very enjoyable. ...more

Loved this book. I have never read the original PrIde & Prejudice by Jane Austen, so I was interested in seeing what a naughty version was like. I thought the characters were well written. The story was with a steady even pace. While the scenes were steamy, the book also had a bit of humor as well. I highly recommend this book if you like historical romances.

Interesting premise

I seem to remember that in a prior review it had been mentioned how much of the original was restated here. I have to agree. Made the book much longer than should have. I liked the premise but far too much restating.

Quite possibly my favorite romance book I've ever read. It perfectly combines the sophistication of Austin's originality with a raunchy spin of breathtaking sensuality between Miss Bennett and Mr. Darcy. Ladies, it's a must read! Gents, take notes! ...more

Wicked fun with Lizzie and Darcy...4.5 stars!

I love Em Brown’s retelling of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. True to the writing style of Austen, Em Brown gives this most beloved story a bit of wickedness. It’s amazing how Ms. Brown weaves backstory and present action and makes it flow very easily. Imagine Darcy with dark desires that encompass spankings and ties, and that within Lizzie flows the capacity for passion and need. There are a few parts that drew my brows up the hairline, and I fou
