Pride and Prejudice and Mistletoe: a feel-good rom-com to fall in love with this Christmas

By Melissa de la Cruz

  • Paperback
  • £8.99

A romantic, feel-good and festive retelling of Pride and Prejudice, perfect for Christmas.

'I absolutely adored this novel; it's the perfect holiday romance!' Netgalley Reviewer, 5 stars

Darcy Fitzwilliam simply doesn't have time to fall in love. But this Christmas, a kiss under the mistletoe will change everything...

As partner at a major New York hedge fund, Darcy's only serious relationship is with her work cellphone. The truth is, she's too busy being successful and making money to have time for Christmas... let alone to allow romance into her life.

But this year Darcy is coming home to Pemberley, Ohio, for the holidays. There, she runs into her old neighbour and high-school foe Luke Bennet - the oldest of five wayward brothers. When Darcy's enmity with Luke is re-opened, along with a hefty dollop of sexual chemistry... well, sparks are sure to fly. Can Darcy fall in love - or will her pride, and Luke's prejudice against big-city girls, stand in their way?

This sparkling retelling of Pride and Prejudice will warm your heart over the festive season. Perfect for fans of Jane Linfoot, Debbie Johnson and Jenny Colgan.
