Today is the 200th anniversary of the publication of Pride and Prejudice. I'm participating in a blog hop co-hosted by Alyssa Goodnight and Stiletto Storytime by sharing my favorite sequels, spin-offs, and homages to my favorite novel. (Clicking on the titles will link to my reviews.)
In the comments, please share some of yours.
Prada and Prejudice by Mandy Hubbard.
There Callie meets Emily,
who takes her in, mistaking her for a long-lost friend. As she spends
time with Emily's family, Callie warms to them - particularly to Emily's
cousin Alex, a hottie and a duke, if a tad arrogant.
But can Callie save Emily from a dire engagement, and win Alex's heart, before her time in the past is up?

estate. Her father is a regular visitor; her sister Jane and her
husband, Bingley, live nearby; the marriage prospects for Darcy’s
sister, Georgiana, are favorable. And preparations for their annual
autumn ball are proceeding apace.
But on the eve of the ball, chaos
descends. Lydia Wickham, Elizabeth’s disgraced sister who, with her
husband, has been barred from the estate, arrives in a hysterical

owners and servants alike may never be the same.

Austen's immortal Pride and Prejudice, directed by and starring
the Academy Award-winning Hollywood heartthrob Harry Noble.
nobody is more surprised than Jasmin herself when she lands the role of Elizabeth Bennet. But things start to
go very wrong very quickly. Ms. Field's delicious contempt for the
arrogant, overbearing Harry Noble goes from being wicked fun to
Her brief moment of theatrical glory looks as if it's
going to be overshadowed by the betrayal of her best friend, the
disintegration of her family and the implosion of her career. And
suddenly she can't remember a single one of her lines. But, worst of
all, Harry Noble -- who, incidentally, looks amazing in tight breeches -- has started to stare hard at Jazz with that sort of a glimmer in his eyes...
