Hello. I am a fan of Jane Austen, and Pride and Prejudice is my favourite book by far. Because of it, I´ve read different retellings of the story for years. I prefer young adult and not erotic books. I´ll recommend you two books I´ve read in case you´re interested, while I hope you may include others you know. Anyway, enjoy!

- Prom and Prejudice by Elizabeth Eulberg --> http://www.fantasticfiction.co.uk/e/elizabeth-eulberg/prom-and-prejudice.htm

- Spies and Prejudice by Talia Vance. It's been recently updated, I didn't like it though. I mention it anyway so you can decide for yourselves.

Does it have to be a Pride and Prejudice retelling? Or can it be a book with similar key aspects? I've heard good things about "Shades of Milk and Honey".

Summary:
Jane resists this fate, and rightly so: while her skill with glamour is remarkable, it is her sister who is fair of face, and therefore wins the lion’s share of the attention. At the ripe old age of twenty-eight, Jane has resigned herself to being invisible forever. But when her family’s honor is threatened, she finds that she must push her skills to the limit in order to set things right–and, in the process, accidentally wanders into a love story of her own...

btw, I love Pride and Prejudice as well. Have you checked out the Lizzie Bennet Diaries on YT?

@ DullyNoted: I asked for P&P specifically, but it doesnt mean you are not free to post whatever suggestions you like related more or less! ;-) Thanx you for the title, I'll check in on Holidays. Meanwhile, I didnt not there were a Lizzy diaries (Ive heard of Carrie diaries thought) But Ive read a Marvel collection of 5 comics about P&P :-P Worth it :-)

I didn't know Marvel had released P&P comics. I did happen upon P&P with Zombies comics though. You should really check out the Lizzie bennet diaries, it is really done nicely. Their interpretation of Lydia was a revelation. They are now doing a Sanditon retelling, since they finished the P&P. :)

Hmm. Sounds fine as well ;-) btw you can download the P&P Marvel collection from mobilism. Just put "Pride and Prejudice" in search and you'll see it (pm if you don't, its been a while since I first watched it) Enjoy! :-)

Well, this book as been re-edited and re-named (formerly, the Daughters Grimm), but Minda Webber's 'Pride and Prejudice and Daughters Grimm'.

I read it in its previous incarnation and it was very tongue-in-cheek (it had a lot of puns and was a quick read).

Rosie Rushton has retold not only Pride and Prejudice (as Love, Lies, and LIzzie), but Sense and Sensibility (as The Secrets of Love), Mansfield Park (as Whatever Love Is), and Emma (as Secret Schemes and Daring Dreams) in contemporary settings. She has probably also done Northanger Abbey and Persuasion, but I haven't seen them yet.
they are published by www.piccadillypress.co.uk

You need to hang on for P&P to come out but Harper Collins is doing The Austen Project, where they ask famous writers to modernize Austen. Sense & Sensibility by Joanna Trollope is the only one out right now but Northanger Abbey is coming soon.

Curtis Sittenfeld is on deck to write P&P.

Some other P&P recs (gen fix - none are erotic but they're not YA either):
Longbourn by Jo Baker
Death Comes to Pemberley by P.D. James
Abigail Reynolds has written a whole series of "Pemberley Variations" and one series set in modern times, starting with "The Man who Loved Pride & Prejudice."
