Spotlight on: Pirates and Prejudice by Kara Louise

About the Book:

After Elizabeth Bennet refuses Mr. Darcy's offer of marriage, it takes a heavy toll on him. He withdraws to London and disappears near the docks, away from family, friends, and acquaintances. When he is mistaken for an escaped pirate, he is thrust into an adventure he would never have imagined. Will this be what he needs to forget the one woman he had come to love? 

When her aunt and uncle have to cancel their plans to tour the Lake District, Elizabeth Bennet has the opportunity to sail to the Isles of Scilly with her father. After a pleasant visit, the voyage home brings storms, a shipwreck, and pirates! When she is rescued by gallant Captain Smith, she finds herself inexplicably drawn to him. What will she do when she discovers he is the very man whose offer of marriage she refused just a few months earlier?

Doesn't this look like a fun summer read?  I know I'll be adding this one to my beach bag!

 I was very impressed with the author's previous two Austenesque books, Darcy's Voyage and Only Mr. Darcy Will Do, and I'm looking forward to another P&P adventure and variation. 

Kara Louise is doing a blog tour for this book, so you can visit her website for more info. 

What are you looking forward to tucking into your beach bag this summer?

That looks awesome!! I'm going to have to add it to the TBR -- I've heard nothing but raves for Louise's books.

My summer TBR is too long for words. :)

I hadn't heard of these books, Joanne. Though I know there have been oodles of Jane Austen spin-offs. (She's probably turning in her grave as we speak. Though I'm sure she'd find the whole idolatry thing amusing.)

I'll add this title to my list since it sounds like a fun summer-time read. Mr. Darcy as a pirate. HA! How come she doesn't recognize him? What is he covered with hair? Or maybe an eye patch?

Lately I've been re-reading some Mary Balogh Regency books, not to mention Carla Kelly. Luckily I hung on to my old Signet romances. By the way, I'm having a Georgette Heyer Blogathon coming up in August and I fully expect you to join in, m'dear. :)
