Survival Instinct by Janie Crouch

Unleashing Mr. Darcy by Teri Wilson

Synopsis: It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single woman teetering on the verge of thirty must be in want of a husband.

Not true for Manhattanite Elizabeth Scott. Instead of planning a walk down the aisle, she's crossing the pond with the only companion she needs; her darling dog, Bliss. Caring for a pack of show dogs in England seems the perfect distraction from the scandal that ruined her teaching career, and her reputation, in New York. What she doesn't count on is an unstoppable attraction to billionaire dog breeder Donovan Darcy. The London tycoon's a little bit arrogant, a whole lot sexy, and the chemistry between them is disarming. When passion is finally unleashed, might Elizabeth hope to take home more than a blue ribbon?


Review: Teri Wilson's Unleashing Mr. Darcy is a wonderful retelling of the world's most beloved novel, Pride & Prejudice. I was pleasantly surprised with just how closely the novel followed Ms. Austen's story while still maintaining it's own uniqueness. Wilson does an excellent job bringing back to life Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth and adding a fun modern twist. Donovan Darcy is very much swoon worthy. I felt myself falling in love with Austen's characters all over again, except this time I felt an even deeper connection through Wilson's storytelling. I think my only critique of this story is that during certain parts the story line dragged a bit, but overall, I really don't think you could pick a better retelling of Austen's novel. I look forward to reading more from Teri Wilson and I do hope she continues to reinvent Ms. Austen's novels.

Rating: 5/5 DIAMONDS
