Synopsis:  
If there’s one man that fledgling art photographer Diane Petit really, really, actively hates, it’s fragrance mogul Sebastian Darcy who stole her father’s company—and wrecked the man’s health in the process.
But the arrogant SOB had better brace himself because Diane has vowed revenge.
And revenge she will have.

WARNING: Just like in Pride and Prejudice, expect to find one rich, brooding and handsome Mr. Darcy and one feisty small-town girl who can't stand him. Unlike Pride and Prejudice, this book also contains artful nude photos of said Mr. Darcy and nights of wild passion in Paris.
About the Author:  
Alix Nichols is a caffeine addict and a longtime fan of Mr. Darcy, especially in his Colin Firth incarnation. She is a USA Today bestselling author of sexy and humorous romances.

At the age of six, she released her first rom com. It featured highly creative spelling on a dozen pages stitched together and bound in velvet paper.

Decades later, she still loves the romance genre. Her spelling has improved (somewhat), and her books have made Amazon Top 100 lists, climbing as high as #1. She lives in France with her family and their almost-human dog.

My Review:  ✭✭✭✭
Is this a P&P cousin or just a wannabe? That's the question. Well, it's been a lot of years since I read P&P, but I will fix that just as soon as I can. However, that doesn't assist me right now. I will tell you that Diane Petit is very protective of her family and especially close to her father, as Elizabeth Bennett was. She also believed every bad rumor about Count D'Arcy as Miss Bennett did about Mr. Darcy. The use of the name Darcy certainly adds weight to the feeling of P&P.

Count D'Arcy also was overheard in his opinion of Diane as was Mr. Darcy in his opinion of Miss Bennett. But the Count was heard to say "she was lower in the societal food chain than most every person in my employ" and that "falling in love with her unpalatable" as she was a "radical leftist, undereducated have-not". Words I believe Jane Austen might have written had she been born in the proper time to use such terms.

While Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth Bennett made every attempt to avoid each others company, Count Darcy and Diane Petit were involved in a contract that brought them into almost constant contact. And, as with Elizabeth Bennett, with each bit of the truth that is revealed and the more she gets to know the real Sebastian Darcy she falls deeper and deeper in love with him. 

These two characters are very well written and their love story is sweet and hot. Truly, it steams! Certainly a modern day descendant of P&P, I think.
