Bad Miss Bennet

Picking up where Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice left off, The Bad Miss Bennet takes readers on a wild Regency adventure with Lydia Wickham, nee Bennet, who finds herself in dire need of a new husband.Lydia was never the most upstanding of the Bennet sisters, but who ever said that moral rectitude was fun?At least she bested her elder sisters and was the first to get married. She never could understand what allthe fuss was about after she left Brighton with her gallant. It is a shame, though, that Mr. Wickham turnedout to be a disappointing husband in so many aspects, the most notable being his early demise on thebattlefields of Waterloo. And so Lydia, still not yet twenty and full of enterprising spirit, is in urgent need ofa wealthy replacement. A lesser woman, without Lydia's natural ability to flirt uproariously on the dancefloor and cheat seamlessly at the card table, would swoon in the wake of a dashing highwayman, a corruptbanker, and even an amorous Prince Regent. But on the hunt for a marriage that will make her rich, there'snothing that Lydia won't turn her hand to. In the meantime, she has no qualms about imposing on her sisterElizabeth's hospitality at Pemberley. After all, what is the point of having all that fine fortune if not to aid apoor, newly widowed younger sister?While Lydia rattles around the continent from Paris to Venice and to the home of the disgraced Princess ofWales in Italy and back again to Darbyshire, you, dear reader, will be greatly diverted by the new adventuresof Jane Austen's consummate and incorrigible anti-heroine, who never ceases to delight.
