#22 - "My Darcy Mutates..." by Enid Wilson

Title: My Darcy Mutates...
Author: Enid Wilson


What is the universal appeal of Jane Austen's works, especially to a generation of modern women?
Enid Wilson fell in love with Pride and Prejudice at a young age. Her head is always full of "what if".
What if old Mr. Darcy was still alive...
What if Mr. Darcy had a rakish soul?
What if Netherfield Park was haunted?
What if action of Pride and Prejudice had played out in Egypt?

This collection of 14 short stories contains sexy, over-the-top "pick-me-up" stories across the historical, fantasy and modern genres. They are not for the faint-hearted. Some may call the stories wild and say that they bear no resemble to the original, but Enid finds Miss Austen's characters timeless and inspirational.

My rating: 3 of 5

My thoughts on the book:
As it says on the cover, this is a collection of Pride & Prejudice inspired steamy short stories: 4 historical, 3 fantasy & 7 contemporary short stories. Yeah, they're all steamy, but they're also fun & really funny, even hilarious! Enid Wilson definitely surprised me more than once with her stories, especially with the contemporary re-tellings (there were even 2 with reality shows & they were hilarious).
