A Sultry, Modern Pride and Prejudice-Inspired Adventure
I have a mild obsession with Pride & Prejudice. Ok, who am I kidding, I am unconditionally and irrevocably in love with Mr. Darcy. I cannot fix on the hour, or the spot, or the look, or the words, which laid the foundation. It is too long ago. I was in the middle before I knew that I had begun.
This being said, it has been a love affair that has carried on for more that 20 years.  Fitzwilliam Darcy is my favorite hero and I  have never been able to let go.  So as a Crazy, Obsessed Janeite, I love P&P adaptions, retellings, and variations.  I find Mr. Darcy in almost EVERY romance novel I read. He is the original romance hero.
I recently had the pleasure of  reading a Modern Day Darcy and Elizabeth variation called Denial of Conscience: A Modern Day Darcy & Elizabeth Adventure by Cat Gardiner and it was one exhilarating ride!... (Extended Article AND an Interview with Darcy Here)
Elizabeth and Darcy like you have never seen them before!
I love when a writer can take beloved characters, pull them out of their element, transplant them in a different setting, dream up a unique plot and make them brilliant.
In this modern day adventure, featuring the characters of Jane Austen’s Pride & Prejudice, you will witness this exact feat. Denial of Conscience pulls you in, grabs you tight and takes you on an exhilarating ride around the world.
I can’t even begin to tell you how much I enjoyed this story! The pages are filled with passion, possession and a love story so sexy it leaves you breathless. 
I can read this stuff forever!!  Cat Gardiner is a delight to read. Her Austenesque romance novels are brilliantly unique, completely  satisfying and incandescently romantic.
A whirlwind romance, a dangerous adventure, a HOT DARCY! What more do you want in LIFE?!?!? I LOVED THIS BOOK!!!
This was one of the BEST experiences I have ever had with a book!
5 hearts

Thank you, Margie for this review!  Any gal who can appreciate my case for the modern Darcy, particularly one on a Harley with a couple of tattoos, is a groovy gal in my book!  You Rock!  I'm so happy you had a blast with DoC.
