Summary, etc.:
Ever since Emma read Pride and Prejudice, she's been in love with Mr. Darcy and has regarded Jane Austen as the expert on all things romantic. So naturally when Emma falls for Blake Hampton and he invites her home to meet his parents, she is positive an engagement is in her future. But when it turns out that what Blake actually wants is more of a hook-up than a honeymoon, Emma is hurt, betrayed, and furious.

    Breaking up with someone is never easy, especially if you have been together a long time. But Emma Pierce realizes that she and Jane Austen must finally part company. Emma used to believe that Jane's books held the answers to every romantic question in her life until the night she showed up at Blake Hampton's family home expecting to receive a marriage proposal only to find her boyfriend busy serving his famous grilled fish to another lady. Throwing herself into her work seems like a logical way for Emma to get over her heartbreak, but she soon discovers that the new consultant her boss just hired to help her out is none other than Blake's brother, Lucas. Employing her own deliciously dry sense of wit, Whitney Award–winner Wright deftly pays homage to the inherent romantic wisdom found in Austen's classic novels in this delightfully fun and refreshingly sweet contemporary romance.
