Awaiting The Angelini's Next Book

This book has become one of my most favorite Pride and Prejudice related books. It's a very smart modern twist of P & P, along with very witty and sensuous dialogue. I like that there is a bit of risque and erotic ennuendo with the sexual situations...and those situations are definitely HOT and not ungenerously sprinkled throughout the whole book. Having a wonderful gay best friend, a lesbian co-worker/friend is refreshingly modern and fits the locale in San Francisco and the Bay Area. Throughout the book stirs many deep emotions for both Elizabeth and Darcy without any lull. I loved the characters and feel much for each of them. The Judge and attorney premise very engaging. I could not put the book down till it was finished. I am ready to read this book again. Ms. Angelini, I like your style and can't wait for your next book.

HOT!!!!!!

Many modern adaptations of Pride and Prejudice fall short because the author tries to "rewrite" the story but forgets to develop the characters. I found some of the "connections" to P & P to be a bit of a stretch (i.e., Meryton is a suburb of San Francisco and this F. Darcy is the great, great, great, great, great grandson of the character we Austen fans all love), but the characterization between Darcy and Elizabeth is still there, just like in the original. They are very passionate, a characteristic I always assumed the original couple had, even though Regency England required them to be hidden passions. I could do without the use of the "F" word, but it would not keep me from rereading this book. Darcy is everything a woman could want - tall, handsome, rich, and sensitive. Elizabeth is an independent woman. I, especially, loved the scene after the bachelor auction when she slapped the wholly crap out of him in the parking lot. You go girl!!!! Anyway, I would recommend this to anyone who loves P & P as I do.

Will read over and over!

I loved this book instantly. It was amazingly well written and captured me from the first page. I virtually read the whole thing in one day and have already begun rereading. It was interesting to see the connections to the real Pride and Prejudice as well as entertaining to read about Darcy and Elizabeth in present day terms. The love scenes were either tender or "hot" which I loved because it shows the range and depth of their feelings for each other. This book is well worth the money!

From the Author, the Back Cover Blurb:

I thought I would provide the back-cover blurb and a little more detail than the description above. A thoroughly modern adaptation of Jane Austen's classic novel Pride and Prejudice, The Trials of the Honorable F. Darcy re-paints our favorite characters in twenty-first century colors. Judge Fitzwilliam Darcy has had enough. A transplanted Englishman roped into being a San Francisco judge at a young age, Will Darcy is ready to hang up his black robe and return to the life of a country gentleman until he meets Elizabeth Bennet, a fresh-faced attorney with a hectic schedule and no time for the sexy judge. She's just trying to survive her first year as a trial lawyer. Played out in Judge Darcy's courtroom, tempers and sparks fly as the two battle wits and chemistry, and the inevitable occurs: judge meets attorney, judge snubs attorney, judge falls for attorney. When the two are unexpectedly thrown together, passions flare. But when the ethical considerations forbid their romance, can Will convince Elizabeth that their love is worth fighting for? A sexy, bold, and oftentimes hilarious story with a fresh and vibrant cast of characters, The Trials of the Honorable F. Darcy will pull you in from the first page and won't let go until the last!

The most delectable Judge ever....

... and the most swoonable Darcy as well (and if swoonable doesn't YET exist in the dictionaries, I'll plead my non-English speaking... :-) ) But I have to say that Sara Angelini managed to show us what we all suspected and Miss Austen didn't dare to (but mentioned it all the same!) by the time she wrote the wonderful story of Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet: the strong attraction which subsisted between the two of them from the beginning! Yes, she did speak of - or rather made Darcy speak of - those utmost forces of passion... Yes, we do sense them in this modern narration of the most beloved novel (Pride & Prejudice). Wonderful story, one of those you would keep on your bed stand for repeated bed time reading...
