Pride and Passion a stunning romantic novel and an incandescent modern retelling of Pride and Prejudice by a devoted Jane Austen admirer. This sensual adaption focuses on Jenna Stone, a clever post-graduate student studying at Pemberley University with the hopes of writing a children’s book. Once she is moved into her new apartment she bumps into her handsome but rudely brooding neighbor, Frederick Knight, who (due to a sudden change of events) ends up being her advisor at school. As their relationship grows from that of advisor-and-student into an intense, passionate romantic affair the two most overcome their own miscommunications, a wicked young man after Jenna’s heart, and the forbidden nature of their relationship. Focusing on the overarching kindness and good humor of Austen’s original characters, this gripping novel is an homage to the beautiful craftsmanship of a relationship that truly withstands the test of time.

Reader Alert! Professor Knight is a sexy romance that will keep you turning the pages, wondering if these stubborn protagonists will ever realize that they are meant to be. Jenna Stone thought she would be having an average post-graduate school experience until she found out that her handsome, brooding neighbor would be guiding her academic career. Things only grow more complicated as the sexual tension between Jenna and her academic advisor, Professor Knight, grows more and more heated…eventually, there will have to be a climax.

To My Readers: Every schoolgirl has a had a crush on a teacher at some point or another—Jenna understands this, but what she doesn’t understand is why her schoolgirl crush has to take place in post-graduate school and on the rude man who happens to be her academic advisor and neighbor. Jenna’s frustration only grows greater as her hatred for the handsome, enticing Professor Knight turns to undeniable sexual attraction and possibly even love. A novel born out of the love for Jane Austen’s Pride & Prejudice, this engaging romance has everything from mistaken identities and forbidden romance to a very sexy, modern Knight in shining armor!
