He’s the last man in the world she would ever marry!

To Lizzy Sharp, businessman Louis Jumeau is a real-life Mr Darcy: insufferably proud, infuriatingly prejudiced…and impossibly good-looking! Louis knows exactly what gold-digging families like the Sharps are after – his money. But the universally acknowledged truth is that this billionaire needs a wife.

Independent Lizzy might not seem the perfect candidate, but her curves are proving powerfully tempting. And the arrogant and well-practised Louis is sure all it will take to wed – and bed! – her is a little seductive persuasion…

The Powerful and the Pure When Beauty tames the brooding Beast…

Great story but..........

Firstly, I enjoyed this book on its own merit. Louis is a fascinating hero apart from his initial meeting with Lizzie when he is completly unreasonable and over the top - I would have driven off and left him to stew! Lizzie herself ia quirky and great fun - you can't fail to warm to her. However, although it is not expressly stated there can be no question that this is based on one of the great British romantic novels of all time - Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice (count me as one of those who prefer the Matthew MacFadyen/Keira Knightley film to the BBC Colin Firth production)! And therein lies a dilemma. To what extent can you copy the plot of another story? Obviously the story has been modernised but I am uneasy at just how many similarities there are. Nevertheless highly enjoyable. 8.5 out of 10.

A familiar feel

This is a modern remake of the Jane Austen classic 'Pride and Prejudice', although no specific links are made of course. As you read this book, you can instantly see the similarities to the former story mentioned, but this didn't stop me from turning each page waiting to read what would happen next! Most importantly, the dark and brooding love interest Louis Jumeau is more than a match for Mr Fitzwilliam Darcy any day!

In true Cathy Williams Style. Love it!

Ok, I have to admit, I was apprehensive at first because there is no way anyone could replicate the beloved classic and modernise it. However this is fantastic! Beautifully written It was a slow start at first, a bit bumpy, but Ms. Williams took as classic and rock with it! the second half of this book left me in suspense and gasping for air! I was hooked! You have to experience this book..!
