"It is a truth universally acknowledged" that Teri Wilson has done it again with her modern take on yet another classic, beloved, and well known piece of literature.

The first novel of Wilson's that I read and enjoyed was "Unmasking Juliet," with its modern take/twist on Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet. I liked the romance between the star-crossed lovers(Leo and Juliet), the rivalry between the couples feuding chocolatier families(the Mezzanottes and the Arabellas), and the various mouthwatering descriptions of the chocolate confections Leo and Juliet created.

In "Unleashing Mr. Darcy," Teri creates a story centered around the world of competitive dog shows, and places well known characters from Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice in that world. Donovan(our Mr. Darcy)is a professional dog show judge, who also happens to be a wealthy blue blood. While Elizabeth Scott(not Bennet)is an American school teacher, who enjoys, as a hobby, entering her dog Bliss in these competitions. The two meet and butt heads when Donovan is a visiting judge(from the UK)at a local competition held in Elizabeth's home state(New Jersey). I liked the prickly, heated sexual attraction/chemistry Wilson was able to create between Darcy and Elizabeth. It created the perfect tension, coupled with the constant misunderstandings between the characters.

Having grown up devouring "Pride and Prejudice," the title of this book set my heart aflutter. Alas! Except for some names and some similarity in the plot this Harlequin Romance had nothing of the panache of Pride and Prejudice. Instead it was true to the Harlequin formula of the characters confused between love and lust with some intrigue thrown into the mix. If you like Harlequin romances and dogs (yes, lots about show dogs - hence the 'unleashing') you will love this book.
