"Seducing Mr. Darcy" by Gwyn Cready

Mr. Darcy just isn't Flip Allison's style. She prefers novels with hot sex on the bathroom sink to the mannerly, high-tension longing of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice. That is, until she pays a visit to Madame K, who promises a therapeutic massage with an opportunity to "Imagine Yourself in Your Favorite Book." Somehow, on the way to a sizzling sink-top session with a Venetian Adonis, Flip lands right in the middle of Regency England -- and dangerously close to handsome Mr. Darcy. So close, in fact, that she discovers a side of him even Jane Austen couldn't have imagined.
Waking from her massage, Flip is on top of the world and ready for her upcoming book club -- that is, until she notices a new scene in which Darcy and spunky heroine Lizzy Bennet are arguing over...Flip Allison? Her rapturous liaison with Darcy has had disastrous consequences for Austen's characters -- not to mention millions of
Pride and Prejudice fans! Flip has twenty-four hours to put the story back on course, and Magnus Knightley, a sexy but imperious scholar whose brooding good looks and infuriating arrogance are decidedly Darcy-like, is the only one who can help. The only problem is, Flip can't keep her hands off him, either....

My thoughts on the book:
First of all, I have to say that I read this one in december, too. I wasn't expecting a lot, I borrowed it from a friend because I needed a book with Mr in the title for a challenge, but I have to say that I enjoyed reading it!
What Flip does with Mr. Darcy has consequences on the original story, so the story starts to change in all the copies of "Pride & Prejudice" in the world and while Flip & Magnus are trying to fix that, they find themselves in lots of funny and steamy situations. So, if you enjoy reading funny & steamy romances, than this is a book for you...

Rating: 3/5
