(From the publisher):
Jane Hayes is a seemingly normal young New Yorker, but she is secretly obsessed with Mr. Darcy, as played by Colin Firth in the BBC adaptation of Pride and Prejudice. No real man can compare. When a wealthy relative bequeaths her a trip to an English resort catering to Austen-crazed women, Janeís fantasies of meeting the perfect Regency-era gentleman suddenly become reality.
Jane knows itís all a game. Yet the longer she stays, flirting with the actors playing gardeners and gentlemen, the more she wonders: will she kick the Austen obsession for good, or could all her dreaming culminate in a Mr. Darcy of her own?
