We are thrilled (and a little giddy) to have published Spank Me Mr. Darcy by Lissa Trevor, our Pride and Prejudice erotic mash up. We think it is quite delightfully naughty in a way that should make you blush, and keep turning the pages.
Ms. Trevor says, “I wanted to write a fun mash-up that was hot and sexy, while remaining true to the passionate love Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy had for each other. Pride and Prejudice is over 200 years old and the fact that its characters have endured this long and live in the hearts of readers is a tribute to Jane Austen’s talent. I wanted to play in her world for a bit and expand on Elizabeth Bennet’s sensuality and the dark wickedness I’ve always thought lurked inside Mr. Darcy.”
Spank Me readers will get to visit a Netherfield that has a new master and is infamous for its debauched parties of excess and luxury. Elizabeth and her sister Jane finagle an invitation to the ball, where Elizabeth is introduced to Mr. Darcy and Jane is captivated by Netherfield’s new owner, Mr. Bingley. When Jane becomes ill the women remain at Netherfield, and a new world unfolds for Elizabeth when she discovers the dungeons there and the man in the black mask who becomes her Master.
Riverdale Avenue Books publisher Lori Perkins says, “As soon as Lissa came up with the idea for this Pride and Prejudice/50 Shades of Grey mash-up, we knew we had a winner. The story of kinky goings-on at Netherfield really works. I loved it and couldn’t put it down. It was just too clever.”
As Jane Austen would say, “I declare after all there is no enjoyment like reading! How much sooner one tires of anything than of a book! – When I have a house of my own, I shall be miserable if I have not an excellent library.” How about e-books Ms. Austin?
