About the Author
The author of numerous best-selling Pride and Prejudice variations, historical romance writer Victoria Kincaid has a Ph.D. in English literature and runs a small business, er, household with two children, a hyperactive dog, an overly affectionate cat, and a husband who is not threatened by Mr. Darcy. They live near Washington DC, where the inhabitants occasionally stop talking about politics long enough to complain about the traffic. On weekdays she is a freelance writer/editor who specializes in IT marketing (it’s more interesting than it sounds) and teaches business writing. A lifelong Austen fan, Victoria has read more Jane Austen variations and sequels than she can count – and confesses to an extreme partiality for the Colin Firth version of Pride and Prejudice.

As I was reading this story I kept thinking about gossip concerning presidents and other politicians...even today's men and women, and how their lives are on display but then also how gossip can be used to paint those as immoral, corrupt, etc. individuals even if untrue and so many believe what they hear and/or read.
We do have this modern variation beginning as did canon. Elizabeth, attending a social event, with her nouveau riche family, gets caught where she should not be and when she can't seem to get her foot out of her mouth is thought to be a stupid and not so pretty and thus an ignorable young lady by the president of the USA. But when he expresses his opinion within her hearing and God-awful Lydia uses social media to relate his words to all who subscribe to that channel of communication the stage is set to make any apologies or second chances to change his opinion almost impossible.
What I did like about this is how Elizabeth is involved with bettering the world by her work with the Red Cross and how the president is forced to learn just how wrong he is about not only her intelligence and her motivations but also her beauty as sexual chemistry is thrown into their relationship.
But several things work against them. He has sworn not to date while in the presidency and with all the rumors is now forced to step back. Any overtures at this point would seem politically motivated. Plus Lydia has gone on to paint an even wider gap between her sister and the president. (Guess who is helping her?) Elizabeth decides to bow out of the picture.
I loved the solution the author came up with. I had an inkling that this was the only possibility but it was so well staged - much better than I had painted in my brain.
Well done - and don't you love the cover -drool!
