Fitzwilliam Darcy, Rock Star
Author
Heather Lynn Rigaud
Review
A new twist on the classic tale of Pride and Prejudice - what if Darcy and Bingley were rock stars who lost their opening act and Jane and Elizabeth ended up going on tour with them as their opening act? Racy romance and trouble ensues in this modern-day take. Fun summer read.

Review
Lovers of Austen fan fiction will not be disappointed by Victoria Connelly. This is an amusing tale of two sisters who have a falling out after falling for the same man on an adventure and will come across each other again at an Austen Fan Festival in Bath. This is a fun, quick read. Great for the pool or the beach.
