Undressing Mr. DarcyBook
Taking it off in the name of history . . .
Thirty-five-year-old American social media master Vanessa Roberts lives her thoroughly modern life with aplomb. So when her elderly Jane Austen - centric aunt needs her to take on the public relations for Julian Chancellor, a very private man from England who's written a book called My Year as Mr. Darcy , Vanessa agrees. But she's not 'excessively diverted,' as Jane Austen would say.
Hardbound books, teacups, and quill pens fly in the face of her e-reader, coffee, and smartphone . . .
. . . until she sees Julian take his tight breeches off for his Undressing Mr. Darcy show, an educational 'striptease' down to his drawers to promote his book and help save his crumbling estate. The public relations expert suddenly realizes things have gotten . . . personal. But can this old-fashioned man claim her heart without so much as a GPS? It will take three festivals filled with Austen fans, a trip to England, an old frenemy, and a flirtatious pirate re-enactor to find out . . .
