Unleashing Mr Darcy - Teri Wilson (2013)

Elizabeth Scott has a legitimate anger towards those with wealth and power. Her teaching career is in tatters thanks to one of these people and now she is disgraced and in need of a break. Luckily for her, a break is on the horizon. After showing her dog, Bliss, at a New Jersey dog show, Elizabeth is offered the chance to live in England and show a pack of dogs for a fellow contestant who doesn't have time to show her own dogs. Being a glorified dog nanny isn't exactly what Elizabeth had in mind for her life but it does provide the respite she needs from her overbearing mother and the scandal back in New York. What she doesn't need, however, is the persistence of billionaire Donovan Darcy, who has his mind set on getting Elizabeth to fall for him. How can a man with all the wealth in the world be any different from the man who ruined her life back home? If Elizabeth can bring herself to trust Donovan, she might just find that everyone with money and power isn't necessarily bad. This is a wonderfully written story, with Austen-era references and lovable characters. Keep an eye out for thinly veiled references to a popular British comedy and sparks flying between two unlikely people. (AS)

Unleashing Mr Darcy, by Teri Wilson, sets the tale of Elizabeth and Darcy in the world of show dogs. The summary says: "It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single woman teetering on the verge of thirty must be in want of a husband. Not true for Manhattanite Elizabeth Scott. Instead of planning a walk down the aisle, she's crossing the pond with the only companion she needs - her darling dog, Bliss. Caring for a pack of show dogs in England seems the perfect distraction from the scandal that ruined her teaching career, and her reputation, in New York. What she doesn't count on is an unstoppable attraction to billionaire dog breeder Donovan Darcy. The London tycoon's a little bit arrogant, a whole lot sexy...and the chemistry between them is disarming. When passion is finally unleashed, might Elizabeth hope to take home more than a blue ribbon?"
