It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single man in possession of a large ego must be in want of a woman to cut him down to size...

When journalist Jasmin Field lands the coveted role of Elizabeth Bennet in a one-off fundraising adaptation of Pride and Prejudice she discovers that the play's director, Hollywood heart-throb Harry Noble, is every bit as obnoxious as she could have hoped. Which means a lot of material for her column. And a lot of fun in rehearsals.

And then disaster strikes. Jazz's best friend abandons her for a man not worthy to buy her chocolate, her family starts to crumble before her eyes and her award-winning column hits the skids. Worse still, Harry Noble keeps staring at her. As the lights dim, the audience hush and Jazz awaits her cue, she realises two very important things, one: she can't remember her lines, and two: Harry Noble looks amazing in breeches...

Journalis Jazz Field lands a part in a benefit performance of Pride & Prejudice. She sees actors and acting in a new light, and gains some respect for the craft.

If you remember reading P&P, you might get more out of the characters in this book. But expect fluff.
