About the book:

Dreams come true in this hilarious, feel-good fairy tale about life, love, and dating literatures most eligible bachelor!

After a string of disastrous dates, Emily Albright decides shes had it with modern-day love and would much rather curl up with Pride and Prejudice and spend her time with Mr. Darcy, the dashing, honorable, and passionate hero of Jane Austens classic. So when her best friend suggests a wild week of margaritas and men in Mexico with the girls, Emily abruptly flees to England on a guided tour of Jane Austen country instead. Far from inspiring romance, the company aboard the bus consists of a gaggle of little old ladies and one single man, Spike Hargreaves, a foul-tempered journalist writing an article on why the fictional Mr. Darcy has earned the title of Man Most Women Would Love to Date.

The last thing Emily expects to find on her excursion is a broodingly handsome man striding across a field, his damp shirt clinging to his chest. But thats exactly what happens when she comes face-to-face with none other than Mr. Darcy himself. Suddenly, every womans fantasy becomes one womans reality. . . .
