Editorial Reviews

Review

"An X-rated homage to Jane Austen's classic."
—Glamour UK

“The author did a brilliant job of keeping to the original story but just adding very saucy and outrageous acts to make it stand out!”
—Leetid’s Reading

"A sexual soap opera set back in the day of horse and carriage!"
—Angel's Cove

"Readers familiar with Austen’s story will laugh (and blush) with delight as their favorite characters shed their mild mannered exteriors (and clothes) and succumb to passion."
—San Francisco Book Review

"...A glorious, breathless gallop through the word-smithing antics based on Jane Austen’s most popular classic novel... Written with Szereto’s deft humor, combined with Austen’s style, the result is a great deal of fun with literature, with scandal and laughter on every page. Laugh out loud funny and arousing by turns, the pace doesn’t flag from beginning to end, every point spot on."
—Portland Book Review

"Instead of living happily ever after, Elizabeth and Darcy have faced murderers and zombies. Now Mitzi Szereto gives the classic novel an erotic work-over. It's not just bodice ripping, but Szereto has thrown in a sprinkling of gay desire and BDSM as well."
—Hot Press (Ireland)

"Mitzi Szereto's erotic parody is a loving historical riff on the Jane Austen classic." - The Advocate

"This novel uses Szereto's spicy additions to explore and elaborate on the character's motivations, thus legitimately reinterpreting Jane Austen's story rather than simply jamming in the erotica... Szereto's imagination will surprise, her interpretations will intrigue..."
—Rambles.NET

“A fan of the original and wondering what all the characters you enjoyed might really be thinking of doing behind all those pleasantries? Give Pride and Prejudice: Hidden Lusts a read and see if you feel the same lusts they do!”- Bzzingbee

"The author, Mitzi Szereto takes all our favorite characters and puts them in the sexiest situations imaginable. Pride and Prejudice:Hidden Lusts is a mash-up similar to Pride and Prejudice and Zombies in style, except there aren’t any walking dead. But there is definitely some head."
—Glamour

"A fun take on a classic."
—The Reading Life

"What I really liked about Szereto's rendition is that it made sense and the insertions were much lovelier to read than the inclusion of dead, grizzled walking corpses... So as long as you don’t take your Austen too seriously, I think you will find this version an amusing and titillating treat!"
- Girls in the Stacks


"Ms. Szereto has, while honoring the original manuscript, done an excellent job in inserting those hidden lusts that could very well have been in in the minds of each and every character from the original novel."
—Book Reader's Heaven

"Szereto has replaced modesty in all my favorite characters with porno-pumping desire."
—College Candy

"Dear Lord, this is Pride and Prejudice, is nothing sacred? Yet I couldn't stop reading."
—Lynette's Two Cents

"I was delighted with this book, anyone who loved the original classic should read Pride and Prejudice: Hidden Lusts by Mitzi Szereto!"
—Readaholics Anonymous

"This novel is quite respectful of the original. Szereto’s version is hilarious and accomplished. Who is to say that Jane Austen wouldn’t have written something like this if the zeitgeist of her era had been more like that of ours? In years to come, this book will probably be regarded as a classic in its own right."
- Jean Roberta/Lizardlez


"Read it if for no other reason the novelty or seeing peoples faces when they think your all smart and reading a classic, then they look closer and see it's smut."
—Getting Naughty Between the Stacks

"(Szereto's) sophisticated and humorous touch to retelling a well-known story is both absorbing and clear. I still find it impressive how well her rewrite lines up with the original novel, and look forward to her future endeavors."
—Romancing the Book

"I giggled, laughed and smiled all through Pride and Prejudice: Hidden Lusts."
—Another Look Book Reviews

"Put simply, "Pride and Prejudice: Hidden Lusts" is delicious smut… Szereto has written us some healthy, Victorian erotic…everyone enjoys a good romp or three and lives happily ever after."
—EDGE

"This is a 'must read' for anyone who loves spicy and entertaining literature. You’ll be shocked, uncomfortably aroused and planning to re-read it over and over. Bravo Ms. Szereto for bringing us all a little more culture."
—Whipped Cream Reviews

"Despite the sexy times, Mitzi has kept the story faithful to how Austen would have written it, so the style of it is perfect, and flows well."
—Love Romance Passion

"A refreshing change while keeping the classic storyline intact... This was my first novel by Mitzi Szereto, but definitely not my last!"
—JoJo's Book Corner

"Szereto has captured Austen’s voice and tone and the essence of her characters so well that you might’ve believed that it was written by Austen herself — but for all the lustful thoughts and naughty shenanigans that appear in just about every chapter!"
—Pace J. Miller

"It is my personal opinion that Austen would not be rolling over in her grave over Szereto's novel. In fact, she might laugh a little."
—The Dying Book Affair

"Pride and Prejudice: Hidden Lusts is historical parody, Regency romance, erotica, and satire. It's a mashup of all mashups. And most of all, it's a whole lot of fun!"
—Mitzi Szereto, in an interview with Joey Pinkney

"I was extremely conscious at all times to write in the voice of Jane Austen. I wanted Pride and Prejudice: Hidden Lusts to be seamless, with nothing marring the Austen feel and story-telling style or, I should add, her use of language."
—Mitzi Szereto, in an interview with The Book Rat

"I read Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and let me tell you something: this is no Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. There's way more seminal fluid."
—Cherry Trifle

"Ms. Szereto brings new life to this classic. The original book seems dry by today’s standards, but this new version will keep the reader entertained from first page to last."
—Sensual Reads

"Everything from the tone to the dialogue is executed superbly... This adaptation of Jane Austen is essential for collectors of literary erotica and, dare I say, is just as fine if not more riveting and sexy read than the original."
—Lucrezia Magazine

"Mitzi Szereto follows the original story line but endows each of the characters with their own quirks of fancy and sexuality with no shortage of imagination."
—Jane Austen Prequels and Sequels Review

"If Jane Austen had drunk a great deal of absinthe and slipped out of her petticoat . . . Mitzi Szereto's erotic parody of Pride and Prejudice might well be the result!"
—Susie Bright

"This is the book Jane Austen would have written, if only she’d had the nerve!"
—Reading Lark

"Polite manners and civilized society are juxtaposed with the seething sexual undercurrents of Szereto's devising. Some ardent Jane Austen fans might scream 'Sacrilege!', but indeed others might raise their eyebrows in interest at this innovative take on a classic as I do and say 'Why not?'"
—Fiendishly Bookish

"[S]exy and often quite humorous . . . Enthusiastically recommended."
Library Journal

"Thank God for Mitzi Szereto! Now the literary purists have someone new to go after with their pitchforks. Adding zombies to Pride and Prejudice was one thing, but SEX SEX SEX? It’s sacrilege! Raunchy, hilarious, subversive sacrilege . . . which is the best kind, of course."
—Steve Hockensmith, author of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dawn of the Dreadfuls

"If Jane Austen can survive the onslaught of zombies, she can surely swoon all over at the thought of Mitzi Szereto’s witty and explicit new exploration of her classic novel. A sexy hoot!"
—Maxim Jakubowski

"Mitzi Szereto’s deliciously erotic retelling of Pride and Prejudice boldly turns Austen’s classic on its pretty little head, knickers-side up. With keen wit (I laughed out loud many times), elegant prose, and a wicked imagination, Szereto exposes hidden lusts and truths, paying irreverent homage to Austen’s romantic entanglements of yore while at the same time revealing a great deal about contemporary matters sexual and otherwise."
—Janice Eidus, author of The Last Jewish Virgin and The War of the Rosens

"Mitzi Szereto’s Pride and Prejudice: Hidden Lusts is a luscious tribute to Jane Austen. This erotic version of the classic honors the wit, romance and sociological observation of the original. At the same time, it’s as though Szereto knows the wicked thoughts that went through many of our minds went we first read Pride and Prejudice. Austen lovers will savor this hot Regency romance — perhaps even your aunt who worships the PBS versions. And those who don’t love Austen can enjoy this entertaining, smart and sensual novel."
—Polly Frost, author of Deep Inside: Extreme Erotic Fantasies and Sex Scenes

"Mitzi Szereto’s adaptation of Pride and Prejudice is a mysterious and delightful uncovering of random sexual encounters among the landed gentry. You will have a ball!"
—Nick Belardes, author of Random Obsessions and illustrator of West of Here

“Wicked, tongue in cheek (and elsewhere) take on Pride and Prejudice—a wild, funny, sexual romp. Austen is shaken up, sexed up, and stirred up in Szereto’s naughty, la...


"Thank God for Mitzi Szereto! Now the literary purists have someone new to go after with their pitchforks. Adding zombies to Pride and Prejudice was one thing, but SEX SEX SEX? It’s sacrilege! Raunchy, hilarious, subversive sacrilege . . . which is the best kind, of course."
(Steve Hockensmith)

From the Back Cover

A classic that goes all the way

In Pride and Prejudice: Hidden Lusts, Mr. Darcy has never been more devilish and the seemingly chaste Elizabeth never more turned on. The entire cast of characters from Austen's classic is here, caught with their breeches unbuttoned and their skirts raised high in this re-imagined red-hot Regency romance. And of course, there's plenty of good old-fashioned bodice ripping that shows no pride or prejudice and reveals hot hidden lusts in every scandalous page-turning chapter.

Format: Paperback
Pride & Prejudice: Hidden Lusts is an erotica novel adaptation of Jane Austen's classic Pride & Prejudice. All the characters are still here from Mr. Darcy, Elizabeth, and Mr. Bingley but you could have never imagined what was really going on in Netherifeld Park!
While Mrs. Bennett is determined to marry off one of her daughters to the good fortune of Mr. Bingley, Mr. Bennett is too busy behind his study doors with his favorite pictures to get involved.. Mr. Bennett is not the only one with an agenda of his own...Mr. Bingley and his sister both have their sites set on Mr. Darcy and will seemingly stop at nothing to get him. Lady Caroline is trying to bring her birch across anyone's backside that will oblige. Lydia is busy entertaining any officer she comes in contact with. Mr. Collins is known to go behind the bushes with any number of men to satisfy his need. All the while, Elizabeth is keeping herself busy and trying not to think of Mr. Darcy. Will anyone get what they so desire?!

My Thoughts
This adaptation what a refreshing change while keeping the classic storyline intact. Some of the scenes were a little much for my taste, but the plot remained solid and does justice to the genre. One of my favorite's is in chapter 19..."As Elizabeth lay in her bed in Lambton touching herself, so too did Darcy in Pemberley, their hands moving in unison at their loins....That their thoughts should be so closely united would have astonished them both, for as Elizabeth imagined that the fingers within the folds of her womanhood were those of Mr. Darcy, he imagined that those encircling his manhood belonged to her." This was my first novel by Mitzi Szereto, but definately not my last!

Dear Lord, where do I begin?

Okay, everyone knows that my not so secret vice is Pride and Prejudice adaptations. My favorites are ones where Darcy and Elizabeth show their love for each other (umm, get there grove on, have sex, do the nasty). However, nothing prepared me for this.

PRIDE AND PREJUDICE: HIDDEN LUSTS was crazy for coco puffs, completely lacking in reason and common sense. Yet, I was entertained. Granted my entertainment was more along the lines of "Dear Lord, no she didn't. Dear Lord, no this isn't happening. Dear Lord, this is the stupidest, craziest, thing I have ever read. Dear Lord, this is Pride and Prejudice, is nothing scared?" Yet, I couldn't stop reading.

The only way I can make my review coherent, or for you to understand what I mean is to go character by character and give you their sexual vices. This is full of spoilers, because I'm giving you each characters kinks.

BEWARE OF CONTINUING: THIS IS NOT FOR THE FAINT AT HEART. READ AT YOUR OWN RISK. LOL.

Mr. Bennet: He loves to enter woman in their 'hind quarters.' Since Mrs. Bennet refused to do this, he has discovered special drawings of woman with things sticking out of their hindquarters. When he is in the library ignoring his family he is getting himself off and bankrupting his family by paying for these pictures. He eventually gets tired of the pictures and carves out a piece of butternut squash to resemble a woman's internal parts (I'm trying to be delicate here, people!) where he sticks his wee wee. Of course, he is so exuberant that the squash is quickly destroyed, so he ends up banging Mrs. Hill.

Mrs. Bennet: Mrs. Bennet's love of officers back in the day resulted in Jane.

Reviewed at Another Look Book Reviews

I finished Pride and Prejudice: Hidden Lusts a few days ago (now a week ago by the time I've gotten around to updating my draft) and this is the longest I think it has ever taken me to write a review after I've finished a book. I'm stumped on how to rate this book or for that matter, how to properly review Pride and Prejudice: Hidden Lusts without a bunch of spoilers. Since most people I know would have read the original masterpiece by Jane Austen, I think people will want to know what makes this book different and what exactly is the Hidden Lust version all about.

Have I read erotica before? Of course! Have I read romantic comedies before? Of course! I have I read an erotic romantic comedy before? No. I can't say as I have. I giggled, laughed and smiled all through Pride and Prejudice: Hidden Lusts. I dare you to picture Lady Catherine de Bough wielding a horse whip or Mr. Collins losing a front tooth while performing oral sex (on another man no less) and not crack a smile.

Mitzi Szereto has taken one of the most revered story of all time and modified each of the characters in an exaggerated new character form. Did you think a certain female character in Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen was a bit bossy? Well chances are that same character is dominatrix in the Hidden Lust version. The story plot and flow was fantastic but was it so because it followed along an existing fantastic original by Jane Austen?

This erotic adaptation is not as extreme as Anne Rice's version of the fairy tale Sleeping Beauty and for me it focused more on character adaptations. The "acts" themselves were often humourous if not ridiculous and lighter hearted.
