A modern love story with a Jane Austen twist...

Marine biologist Cassie Boulton likes her coffee with cream and her literature with happy endings. Her favorite book is Pride and Prejudice, but Cassie has no patience when a modern-day Mr. Darcy appears in her lab.

Silent and aloof, Calder Westing III doesn't seem to offer anything but a famous family name. But there is more to Calder than meets the eye, and he can't get enough of Cassie Boulton. Especially after one passionate night by the sea. But Cassie keeps her distance. Frustrated by Cassie's evasions, Calder tells her about his feelings the only way she'll let him-by rewriting her favorite book, with the two of them in the roles of Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet. It's up to Cassie to supply the ending...

Praise for Pemberley by the Sea:
"Romance fans will be carried along by the smoldering heat between Cassie and Calder." -Booklist
"As enjoyable and sensual as any of Reynolds's novels." -Library Journal
"In terms of Jane Austen spin offs and redos, this is one of the best... a clear testament to Reynolds' talent as a writer." -Savvy Verse & Wit

Really enjoyed this book and referred to others. Of course we get all the juicy bits that Jane could never be allowed to write and I am looking for to reading 'Morning Light' its sequel.

This is a modern-day take on P&P, and it benefits from not following so closely to the original that you know exactly what will happen. Be warned: the morals are not what they were in the original, and there are multiple sex scenes throughout the book.

(AKA: The Man Who Loved Pride & Prejudice)
This was another great Pride & Prejudice book by Abigail Reynolds. This modern retelling of Pride & Prejudice is filled with great characters and keeps the reader captivated by the story from start to finish.

“Do you know what it is to be a man violently in love? To live for a woman's smiles and laughter, to hunger for her touch until life itself seems impossible without it, to desire her as you desire to breathe?”

“I like my coffee with cream and my literature with optimism.”
