Product Description

Review

"An X-rated homage to Jane Austen's classic." --Glamour UK "The author did a brilliant job of keeping to the original story but just adding very saucy and outrageous acts to make it stand out!" --Leetid's Reading "A sexual soap opera set back in the day of horse and carriage!" --Angel's Cove "Readers familiar with Austen's story will laugh (and blush) with delight as their favorite characters shed their mild mannered exteriors (and clothes) and succumb to passion." --San Francisco Book Review "...A glorious, breathless gallop through the word-smithing antics based on Jane Austen's most popular classic novel... Written with Szereto's deft humor, combined with Austen's style, the result is a great deal of fun with literature, with scandal and laughter on every page. Laugh out loud funny and arousing by turns, the pace doesn't flag from beginning to end, every point spot on." --Portland Book Review "Instead of living happily ever after, Elizabeth and Darcy have faced murderers and zombies. Now Mitzi Szereto gives the classic novel an erotic work-over. It's not just bodice ripping, but Szereto has thrown in a sprinkling of gay desire and BDSM as well." --Hot Press (Ireland) "Mitzi Szereto's erotic parody is a loving historical riff on the Jane Austen classic." - The Advocate "This novel uses Szereto's spicy additions to explore and elaborate on the character's motivations, thus legitimately reinterpreting Jane Austen's story rather than simply jamming in the erotica... Szereto's imagination will surprise, her interpretations will intrigue..." --Rambles.NET "A fan of the original and wondering what all the characters you enjoyed might really be thinking of doing behind all those pleasantries? Give Pride and Prejudice: Hidden Lusts a read and see if you feel the same lusts they do!"- Bzzingbee "The author, Mitzi Szereto takes all our favorite characters and puts them in the sexiest situations imaginable. Pride and Prejudice:Hidden Lusts is a mash-up similar to Pride and Prejudice and Zombies in style, except there aren't any walking dead. But there is definitely some head." --Glamour "A fun take on a classic." --The Reading Life "What I really liked about Szereto's rendition is that it made sense and the insertions were much lovelier to read than the inclusion of dead, grizzled walking corpses... So as long as you don't take your Austen too seriously, I think you will find this version an amusing and titillating treat!" - Girls in the Stacks "Ms. Szereto has, while honoring the original manuscript, done an excellent job in inserting those hidden lusts that could very well have been in in the minds of each and every character from the original novel." --Book Reader's Heaven "Szereto has replaced modesty in all my favorite characters with porno-pumping desire." --College Candy "Dear Lord, this is Pride and Prejudice, is nothing sacred? Yet I couldn't stop reading." --Lynette's Two Cents "I was delighted with this book, anyone who loved the original classic should read Pride and Prejudice: Hidden Lusts by Mitzi Szereto!" --Readaholics Anonymous "This novel is quite respectful of the original. Szereto's version is hilarious and accomplished. Who is to say that Jane Austen wouldn't have written something like this if the zeitgeist of her era had been more like that of ours? In years to come, this book will probably be regarded as a classic in its own right." - Jean Roberta/Lizardlez "Read it if for no other reason the novelty or seeing peoples faces when they think your all smart and reading a classic, then they look closer and see it's smut." --Getting Naughty Between the Stacks "(Szereto's) sophisticated and humorous touch to retelling a well-known story is both absorbing and clear. I still find it impressive how well her rewrite lines up with the original novel, and look forward to her future endeavors." --Romancing the Book "I giggled, laughed and smiled all through Pride and Prejudice: Hidden Lusts." --Another Look Book Reviews "Put simply, "Pride and Prejudice: Hidden Lusts" is delicious smut... Szereto has written us some healthy, Victorian erotic...everyone enjoys a good romp or three and lives happily ever after." --EDGE "This is a 'must read' for anyone who loves spicy and entertaining literature. You'll be shocked, uncomfortably aroused and planning to re-read it over and over. Bravo Ms. Szereto for bringing us all a little more culture." --Whipped Cream Reviews "Despite the sexy times, Mitzi has kept the story faithful to how Austen would have written it, so the style of it is perfect, and flows well." --Love Romance Passion "A refreshing change while keeping the classic storyline intact... This was my first novel by Mitzi Szereto, but definitely not my last!" --JoJo's Book Corner "Szereto has captured Austen's voice and tone and the essence of her characters so well that you might've believed that it was written by Austen herself -- but for all the lustful thoughts and naughty shenanigans that appear in just about every chapter!" --Pace J. Miller "It is my personal opinion that Austen would not be rolling over in her grave over Szereto's novel. In fact, she might laugh a little." --The Dying Book Affair "Pride and Prejudice: Hidden Lusts is historical parody, Regency romance, erotica, and satire. It's a mashup of all mashups. And most of all, it's a whole lot of fun!" --Mitzi Szereto, in an interview with Joey Pinkney "I was extremely conscious at all times to write in the voice of Jane Austen. I wanted Pride and Prejudice: Hidden Lusts to be seamless, with nothing marring the Austen feel and story-telling style or, I should add, her use of language." --Mitzi Szereto, in an interview with The Book Rat "I read Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and let me tell you something: this is no Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. There's way more seminal fluid." --Cherry Trifle "Ms. Szereto brings new life to this classic. The original book seems dry by today's standards, but this new version will keep the reader entertained from first page to last." --Sensual Reads "Everything from the tone to the dialogue is executed superbly... This adaptation of Jane Austen is essential for collectors of literary erotica and, dare I say, is just as fine if not more riveting and sexy read than the original." --Lucrezia Magazine "Mitzi Szereto follows the original story line but endows each of the characters with their own quirks of fancy and sexuality with no shortage of imagination." --Jane Austen Prequels and Sequels Review "If Jane Austen had drunk a great deal of absinthe and slipped out of her petticoat ... Mitzi Szereto's erotic parody of Pride and Prejudice might well be the result!" --Susie Bright "This is the book Jane Austen would have written, if only she'd had the nerve!" --Reading Lark "Polite manners and civilized society are juxtaposed with the seething sexual undercurrents of Szereto's devising. Some ardent Jane Austen fans might scream 'Sacrilege!', but indeed others might raise their eyebrows in interest at this innovative take on a classic as I do and say 'Why not?'" --Fiendishly Bookish "[S]exy and often quite humorous ... Enthusiastically recommended." --Library Journal "Thank God for Mitzi Szereto! Now the literary purists have someone new to go after with their pitchforks. Adding zombies to Pride and Prejudice was one thing, but SEX SEX SEX? It's sacrilege! Raunchy, hilarious, subversive sacrilege ... which is the best kind, of course." --Steve Hockensmith, author of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dawn of the Dreadfuls "If Jane Austen can survive the onslaught of zombies, she can surely swoon all over at the thought of Mitzi Szereto's witty and explicit new exploration of her classic novel. A sexy hoot!" --Maxim Jakubowski "Mitzi Szereto's deliciously erotic retelling of Pride and Prejudice boldly turns Austen's classic on its pretty little head, knickers-side up. With keen wit (I laughed out loud many times), elegant prose, and a wicked imagination, Szereto exposes hidden lusts and truths, paying irreverent homage to Austen's romantic entanglements of yore while at the same time revealing a great deal about contemporary matters sexual and otherwise." --Janice Eidus, author of The Last Jewish Virgin and The War of the Rosens "Mitzi Szereto's Pride and Prejudice: Hidden Lusts is a luscious tribute to Jane Austen. This erotic version of the classic honors the wit, romance and sociological observation of the original. At the same time, it's as though Szereto knows the wicked thoughts that went through many of our minds went we first read Pride and Prejudice. Austen lovers will savor this hot Regency romance -- perhaps even your aunt who worships the PBS versions. And those who don't love Austen can enjoy this entertaining, smart and sensual novel." --Polly Frost, author of Deep Inside: Extreme Erotic Fantasies and Sex Scenes "Mitzi Szereto's adaptation of Pride and Prejudice is a mysterious and delightful uncovering of random sexual encounters among the landed gentry. You will have a ball!" --Nick Belardes, author of Random Obsessions and illustrator of West of Here "Wicked, tongue in cheek (and elsewhere) take on Pride and Prejudice--a wild, funny, sexual romp. Austen is shaken up, sexed up, and stirred up in Szereto's naughty, laugh out loud, exuberant homage to P&P." --Janet Mullany, author of Jane and the Damned "How fun it is to wander in the minds of seemingly proper tea-and-crumpets men and women, set to the tune of Jane Austen's romantic tale. Szereto creates a parody that's full of sex of all kinds (including taboo topics like homosexuality, adultery, and BDSM), but it is classy at the same time." --Stephanielovesblogspot "Thank God for Mitzi Szereto! Now the literary purists have someone new to go after with their pitchforks. Adding zombies to Pride and Prejudice was one thing, but SEX SEX SEX? It's sacrilege! Raunchy, hilarious, subversive sacrilege ... which is the best kind, of course." -- Steve Hockensmith

This is one of the most hysterical and most fun books I've read for ages. The scandalously shocking things the characters get up to are endlessly inventive, and perfectly attributed to each character. Come on, we all knew Lydia was a total hussy, didn't we? And that Caroline Bingley was a filthy dominatrix? Of course we did. I know the story back to front, and I've seen the BBC adaptation umpteen times, which made for rather brilliant (and occasionally disturbing) images in my mind as I read the shinnanigans in Mitzi Szereto's book. It's not supposed to be taken seriously, it's not a piss-take or a serious attempt at erotic literature, it's just a whole heap of bloody good fun that had me giggling and blushing to myself. She's manipulated the story with deft ingenuity, and her admiration and respect for Jane Austen is clear - as is her filthy mind!
If you want a good old laugh, read it.

Overall thoughts - Wow this one very different variation of Pride and Prejudice and I really enjoyed it. It made me smile all the way through reading all outrageous things the characters were doing. It certainly buts the whole story in a new light and I thought it brought the story back to life for me and fall in love with it again!

I thought the author did a brilliant job of keeping to the original story but just adding very saucy and outrageous acts to make it stand out!

Warning this book is not for the faint hearted or for people that don't like the classics being changed to much!

I have to say that this is one of my favourite appropriations of an existing classic. Mitzi Szereto treats this well-known story with obvious reverence, and yet manages to beguile the reader into a world that is far more passionate than the staid and restrained original.

If you enjoy well-written erotic literature, and you enjoyed Jane Austen's original work, then you will absolutely adore Pride and Prejudice: Hidden Lusts.

Pride and Prejudice being my favourite book and film i thought i would buy this for its erotic values. It does not disappoint. The pride and prejudice story and characters we know just with an insatiable appetite for sex sex sex! I love it! Even with all the scandalous sexual encouters going on somehow the classic romance between Elizabeth and Mr Dary is still there, kind of.
If you like Pride and Prejudice and you like Fifty Shades type erotica this is the book for you.

Seriously now in my top five favourite books and i'm not ashamed to admit it.

Note: Picturing Mr Darcy as Colin Firth doesnt hurt ;-)

In Pride and Prejudice: Hidden Lusts Mitzi Szereto takes the familiar story of the Bennett sisters and transforms it into an hilarious bawdy tale filled with laughs and lust at every turn. It manages to keep the romance between Elizabeth and Mr Darcy, and the character's personal kinks all seem to fit with their personalities. No mean feat!

It's well written too, which seems to be an afterthought for most erotica on Amazon, but not here. My partner and I read it to each other and enjoyed it immensely, we're now reading through Ms Szereto's other book: The Wilde Passions of Dorian Grey and enjoying that too.
