The book starts when everyone has gone to a masked ball which Colonel Foster has organised with his men. Apparently, it is set after the war with Napoleon and there has been a lot of men killed.

The drink at the ball is drugged so that couples are ending up having sex in various rooms under the drugs influence the only ones who do not get drugged are Darcy and Elizabeth, Darcy rescues Elizabeth but cannot find her sisters or her mother to rescue them.

They then go on trying to find Mr Bennet as he has gone missing under mysterious circumstances. This helps them to see the others personalities and get to know one another and as usual we end up with them getting married, along with many others.

You have to read this with your tongue planted firmly in your cheek. It doesn't take itself seriously and is all the better for that. The Masquerade Ball is very amusing & naughty but the plot is weak and tails off towards the end. Still, it made me laugh so worth it for that.

2.0 out of 5 stars I wouldn't buy it 9 Sept. 2016
By EM Clark - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The except of the book is the best part. It amazes me that the author is so widely known for her P&P fanfiction. I have read many, many much more well written on fanfiction.net...for free and unpublished.

Don't get me wrong, I can appreciate a sexy story, and I in fact write my own, which is why I was so surprised and disappointed with this. You know those scenes that give you goosebumps and make your heart race in excitement because they are so hot?? Ms Wilson has several love scenes in this book, but again, the only good one was in the excerpt. They are generally graphic without being sexy. I can't even explain how that is possible, because I don't know.

I skipped through some of the book towards the end, I knew everything would end happily ever after, and I just wanted to be done. The resolution is strange, the conversations of mediocre writing, and the storyline, though with the potential to be good, ends up being too fantastical and easy at the same time. I got the distinct impression that perhaps the writer herself got tired of writing it and just wanted to tie up loose ends and be done.

The Wickham bit is probably the most interesting and unique part of the story, aside from the masquerade ball. So much potential, it really was disappointing. I will not buy or read this author again.
5.0 out of 5 stars Sexy, Sassy & a novel plot line. 9 Oct. 2015
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com

I thoroughly got a kick out of this book. Some fascinating character switch-ups and oohs la la, some scrumptious Darcy/Lizzy romps after they tie the knot. Lots of sassy dialogue that had me laughing out loud. A mystery to be solved where the author gives occasional tantalizing clues as she leads you deeper into her novel plot line.
5.0 out of 5 stars "P&P" a little out of the ordinary! 14 Mar. 2012
By Sachie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
In my opinion, this was one of Enid Wilson's better books. Like "Fire and Cross", it had intrigue, mystery and some great character development. Enid is known for her Sci.Fi. and "Steamy Darcy" novels. Although not set in the far future, the initial premise is a little out of the ordinary and does not follow the canon. In this variation, Mr. Bennet has been missing for 6 years, leaving the Bennet women to essentially "fin for themselves" in the seaside town of Broadstairs. It is told through Lizzy's eyes. As the story opens, Colonel Forster has planned a masquerade ball to bring young people together. His goal is to boost the marriage market and replinish the diminished male population with children.(perils of war) Unknown to the guests, the food and drinks are laced with something that causes all who ingest to become amorous. (some suggestive sex scenes) All in all, several mock marriages take place and guests leave the ball in a daze. Even though Darcy and Lizzy start out with their usual "Love/Hate" relationship, our leading characters have been caught in one such marriage and leave the party only to realize on the next morning what has happened. From here on the plot becomes a little more realistic as relationships evolve and new twists emerge envolving familiar characters and culprits. ??? Was Lizzy compromised? Is the marriage legal? Will it be acknowledged or abandoned? What will happen to the Bennet women? What ever happened to Mr. Bennet? Will he be found or this a "who done it" book? Just what is Lizzy's vow? This book is not for the Austen purist but is definitely a good read. Thanks Enid!
4.0 out of 5 stars A mystery to solve 7 Jun. 2014
By Ladyearl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Along with a very passionate Darcy and Elizabeth comes the mystery of Mr. Bennett's disappearance. I enjoyed the way clues were given throughout the story so that my suspicion fell on various characters along the way, from Collins to Wickham to several others. We don't learn until the end who is really the responsible party and then all questions are answered in the epilogue. I was quite unhappy with the beginning of this story as our most beloved characters behaved in a disturbingly reprehensible manner. A fair explanation is given and the story proceeds in a likable enough way afterwards but I find that even after having completed it book I am uncomfortable with their behavior. Other than that it seemed true to their personalities and I recommend it to lovers of P&P.
4.0 out of 5 stars Two mysteries unveiled 21 May 2012
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this story. It was an easy read and quite different from most JAFF. One thing I have always admired about Enid's stories is how inventive her plots are. This one is as well. The difference is that this story is a bit more grounded in conventional story telling. As such, it held greater appeal for me. I hope to one day write a mystery, and I was interested in learning how Ms. Wilson handled the task.

The story started out with an event that I assumed would set the tone. It was typical of the author's specialty--a very wild and erotic ball where Darcy and Elizabeth meet. Though not particularly believable, it was quite amusing and enjoyable to read. Then out of the blue, the story became a very logical and decently developed mystery. What I loved most was that simultaneously with Darcy and Lizzy acting as a team to try to learn what had happened to her father they are also learning about each other (the hallmark of Austen's Pride and Prejudice). I truly loved how those two mysteries are interwoven and being unravelled simultaneously. The multi-purpose dialogue was delightful. Bravo, Enid!!
