Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for Definitely Not Mr. Darcy

“Entertainment in its purest form, a skirt-flying tumble of a story, and an excellent, lighthearted way to while away a quiet afternoon.”—New York Journal of Books

“A lively and engaging tale of a modern woman faced with the amusingly inelegant reality of Regency life.”—Abigail Reynolds, author of Mr. Darcy’s Noble Connections

“Composed of equal measures of romance, captivating characters, and clever writing, Definitely Not Mr. Darcy is a fun read.”—Chicago Tribune

“Doornebos gives the historical romance novel a hilarious update in this delightful debut...The amusing secondary characters, sidesplitting faux pas, and fiery romance will make Doornebos an instant hit with readers.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“[A] fun, funny, and perfectly satisfying dip into the world so many of us would like to time travel back to—but with a thoroughly modern twist.”—Arielle Eckstut, coauthor of Pride and Promiscuity

“Chloe deals with Regency underwear, spiteful costars, and chamber pots with determination and sass . . . It’s delightful to read an Austen-inspired novel that is funny!”—Margaret C. Sullivan, author of The Jane Austen Handbook

Customer Reviews

He speaks like Mr. Darcy and is always the gentleman.
Candy @ So little time...
A little disjointed and for some reason I felt like the story just jumped from thought to thought and wished it had a little more flow.
Kristin Jones
I enjoy reading 'fluff' like this for fun in between my more 'serious' books...
Brenda Douglass

Undressing Mr. Darcy by Karen Doornebos

With a title like "Undressing Mr. Darcy", author Karen Doornebos' new release is sure to turn a few heads this holiday season. "Sex sells, even to smart, liberated women, and Mr. Darcy was the smart girl's pinup boy." p.7 And like the novel's master PR rep, who has turned tweeting into an #artform, Doornebos has carefully crafted another contemporary romance novel about an ambitious, highly energized, very modern woman who meets a charming Mr. Darcy re-enactor sure to draw the attention of Janeites and romance readers alike.
When Vanessa Roberts, PR extraordinaire with the perpetually-present smartphone and ever-ready clever social media tweet or posting, takes on a pro-bono job as a favor for her elderly Jane Austen loving aunt, little does she expect promoting the English author of "My Year as Mr. Darcy" to turn her organized world topsy-turvy. When she finally meets Julian Chancellor, who has capitalized on his good looks "as he gives a little historical background on his Regency-era clothing as he proceeds to take it off -down to his drawers" at his book signings, she finds she too, like the throngs of Darcy fans in the audience, is caught by his artful allurements.

When she realizes his incentive for writing his book is to raise money to support the restoration of his ancestral home, coupled with his charm and gentlemen-like behavior, she can't help herself but start to fantasize what a fling, nay relationship, with him might be like. As they all attend the Jane Austen Society North America (JASNA) Annual General Meeting (AGM) in Chicago, while surrounded by Austen lovers fully immersed in the hubbub, Vanessa is busy promoting her author, "Want to tie the knot with Mr. Darcy? He's in Cravat Tying 101 right now.

Karen Doornebos got me on the first page (all sixteen lines). I couldn't wait to find out what would happen to Vanessa, Julian, Aunt Ella, and Chase, but, at the same time, Karen Doornebos's charming way of weaving a story (such as "And tea wasn't her cup of tea. She liked coffee.") made me want to slow down and savor every sentence. I smiled like a fool for almost three hundred pages and found the ending right and satisfying. Though many friends think me a Jane Austen "expert," I learned a thing or twelve about Austen. Indeed, a couple days with Karen Doornebos made me a better Austen fan. UMD even helped me pick a Samsung Galaxy phone over an iPhone--so I could download the Ask Mr Darcy app (which is a Magic 8 Ball--Darcy-style). And the Jane Austen scavenger hunt taking Vanessa from Bath and London? I want Karen Doornebos to make it come true. Jane Austen fans who love to laugh have to like this book.

In Undressing Mr. Darcy, author Karen Doornebos gives her readers a tale sure to knock any lady’s slippers off, Janeite or not.

When Vanessa Roberts does her Aunt Ella a favor by working as Mr. Darcy’s, a.k.a. Julian Chancelor, PR rep for his book tour supporting his novel, My Year as Mr. Darcy, she doesn’t realize what she is getting in to.

A social-network junkie, Vanessa cannot wrap her mind around how someone could spend an entire year without using a cell phone, the Internet, or even a ball point pen. She can’t go five minutes. Fascinated by the enigma that is before her, Vanessa slowly sees herself falling under Mr. Darcy’s spell. Can a girl leave a life of hashtags and cyberspace for a life of quill pens and stationary?

Having not encountered a woman as forward and vivacious as Vanessa, Julain Chancelor also appears to be falling hard. It worked for the original Mr. Darcy, why not him? Plus, Julian knows he can make any girl swoon with his tight, flesh-colored breeches, hessian boots, and cravat. I was even falling for him with his arrogance and British charm. But what will happen when his book tour is over and he heads back across the pond?

Karen Doorenbos provides her readers with a fun-loving cast of characters. The combination of Vanessa, her new friend, Sherry, and her frenemy, Lexi, creates one sexy, humorous trifecta. Thrown into the mix is treasure hunter and Jack Sparrow impersonator, Chase MacClane. While I swooned over Chase’s gentlemanly ways, I couldn’t decide if he was a Wickham or a genuine gentleman. Doornebos had me guessing until near the end.

In addition to this new cast, Doornebos also brings back Chloe Parker and Henry Wrightman for a memorable cameo appearance.

With Definitely Not Mr. Darcy, author Karen Doornebos takes readers on a diverting and hilarious ride on the set of the fictitious reality dating show – How to Date Mr. Darcy. For her second Austen-Inspired novel, Karen Doornebos brings readers on a tour de force of Jane Austen conventions and festivals through Chicago, Louisville, Bath, and London! (Have your traveling bags and I <3 Mr. Darcy gear ready, friends!)

Leading us through these incredible celebrations of Janeites and their love for all things Austen are:
Vanessa (a PR specialist who has been raised by her Austen-loving aunt ever since her parents separated)
Aunt Ella (Vanessa's darling aunt who has lately shown signs of having dementia)
Julian Chancellor a.k.a. Mr. Darcy (author of My Year as Mr. Darcy, keynote speaker at this year's JASNA Annual General Meeting, and owner of a crumbling historical estate in England)
Paul (owner of antiques auction house and special friend of Aunt Ella)
Chase MacClane (works for Paul when he is not impersonating Captain Jack Sparrow, claims to have gone to the same high school as Vanessa)
Sherry Pajowski (a JASNA AGM attendee with the most enviable Darcy T-shirt collection imaginable ;) )
Lexi Stone (former PR partner and friend of Vanessa's)

What a fantastic mixture of characters – die-hard Janeites, helpful friends, men in billowy shirts, a social-media maven/non-Janeite, and Jack Sparrow...*ahem* Captain Jack Sparrow. I fell in love with all of these well-drawn and intriguing characters, and took great pleasure in witnessing the conferences and festivals with them. I find that Karen Doornebos's characters are always believable and extremely likable (even the villains!
