Really Angelic - Recommended

Enid Wilson has done it again - retold the story of Fitzwilliam Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet. This time the tale is not only sexy but has a bit of a paranormal twist. You can guess that twist by looking at the book cover. This is not the Pride and Prejudice you read in high school or saw on PBS.

Elizabeth tries to not give in to Darcy, but even an angel can only hold out so long, especially when she has responsibilities. All the usual Pride and Prejudice characters are in the Wilson’s book, but Elizabeth and Darcy are so different, they could have been new characters. It was nice that Wilson kept them anchored by other characters familiar from the original.

The story will keep you wondering how it will end. After all, Mr. Darcy has a bit of the devil in him. And Elizabeth has a bit of an angel in her. Is this a match that will last?

If you’re a fan of Pride and Prejudice and Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth - and you think it’d be fun to see the story steamified - then come back tomorrow for Enid’s post (and possibly a book giveaway).
FTC Disclaimer: The author sent me the book. I read it. I recommended it. I’m hosting the author tomorrow. She’s giving me nothing for that, except a really interesting post. Which I have no doubt people will enjoy reading. Just like I enjoyed reading her book. If you’re from the FTC and would like to read her book, come back tomorrow.

  1. Sounds like a winner! I like the idea of the paranormal twist in the book...and of course I've always loved Mr. Darcy and Lizzie.

  2. LOL about the FTC- I hope they come back tomorrow and buy a copy of the book :) It sounds like a great read.

  3. I, too, like the idea of the paranormal twist, and angels are especially fitting for this tale! I'll be back for the authro interview.

    Writing Prompt Wednesdays today on my blog!

  4. ooo yes .. me me me.. loved that book...loved Elizabeth, couldn't stand her mother !

    I am currently reading Emma, Jane Austen has created some very recognisable characters - in such detail.. I can relate them to actual persons I have encountered. Will be back ..

  5. Loved your comment to the FTC. :)
    Yay that she has another book out!

  6. Hint: There might be a giveaway of the book.....the FTC won't even have to buy it....but that would be against their rules, so....

  7. Can any of us every get too much of Darcy and Elisabeth? I have the movies in three different versions.

  8. Sounds intriguing! There's nothing like putting a new, innovative twist to an old story, and seeing the life it takes!

  9. Sounds like a very interesting twist on a classic!

  10. December I recommended a friend's cd to my crowd.

    I got paid in Hugs. I wonder if I should disclose that to the FTC?

    [I did disclose that he's a really good hugger]

    Looking forward to the interview

  11. I too, reccommend Really Angelic. Also looking forward to tomorrow's guest post. Enid is a creative gal, comes up with interesting and unique posts on her tours. I've had great fun hosting her twice before on my blog as well.

  12. Thanks for the recommendation. It's added to the reading list.

  13. Karen, the FTC may demand that you give hugs to all before they let you off the hook.

    Some day the FTC is going to discover me and I will be in big trouble.

  14. After we dig out from the second blizzard month, I will go to the bookstore!

    Too much Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth Bennett? Never.

  15. Hmm, I'm not much of a P&P fan, but I might just have to check this out! Thanks. :)

  16. This sounds too good to pass-up so I've added it to my want-to-read list. Loved your disclaimer.

  17. Now THAT is an interesting twist to an old story. There are a couple authors out there that have given Darcy a para twist instead of the same old, same old (which gets boring really fast b/c how many ways can you tell Austen's story?).

    I'll be stopping by to see what she has to say in her article.

    Thanks, Helen, for bringing something new to our attention.

  18. Really like the snarky FTC disclaimer!

  19. Sounds like a great book. Can`t wait until tomorrow.

    You should link your post to the FTC blog - if they have one ;)

  20. Sounds intriguing, and pretty much the opposite to Pride & Prejudice & Zombies. I can never get enough Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy.

  21. Jenn! You're trying to get me in trouble, aren't you?

  22. Yep, Enid is at it again. I can see her putting out two or three books a year. She has drive and talent. And imagination. And passion.

  23. Thanks everyone for leaving the comments. How come I had a sweet few hours sleep and missed so many comments already!

    Thanks Helen for recommending the book.

  24. Ooh, Enid, go for the few sweet hours of sleep!

  25. Looking forward to tomorrow's post. Very interesting story.

  26. Hey. Great post you've got here! I love the blog and I submitted it to reddit,digg and propeller. I'm not sure if you did or not already,
    but I'm just trying to do my part to make sure people come and read this. I have a blog too! It's a really enjoyable experience for me. It eases
    the stress out of my life as I'm sure it does for you as well. What hosting company do you use by the way? I use Hostgator.
    I read a really interesting article about how Hostgator is the best company to sign up with if you want to start a blog or website. If you're looking to transfer hosts
    or if anybody you know wants to start a blog i would recommend reading this article

    Hostgator Web Hosting

    Again, thanks for the awesome blog! =)
