Netherfield Prep: A Modern Reimagining of Jane Austen's 'Pride & Prejudice'

Elizabeth Stevens

Young Adult / Fantasy / Romance

"It is a truth universally assumed that a stupidly rich boy must be in want of a girlfriend. It is a truth universally acknowledged that a girl who has just travelled half a world must be in want of a bed." From her first day at pompous boarding school Netherfield, fiery Australian Lily Brewer comes up against the arrogance of Austin Cooper. Austin and his twin Jax are the hottest guys in school. And the richest. It’s quick wits and sass versus suave intelligence and abs, and they refuse to fall for each other. The rest of the school ignores Austin’s behaviour for his pretty face and fat wallet. But, Lily can’t get past his cold character even while her insults are enough to bring a smile to Austin’s usually dour face. As Lily’s roommate Anne is getting closer to Jax, Austin and Lily are always at each other’s throats despite the sizzling chemistry that both of them deny simmering below the surface. Between an ardent proposal from her step-mother’s simpering nephew, a dashing young fellow-Aussie from the Military College, the twins’ scheming bitch of a cousin, Lily’s embarrassing family, Austin’s intended fiancée, the antics of the twins’ best friend, the overbearing Lady Celia, and a whole lot of stubbornness, love seems off the dance card for everyone. Will pride and prejudice ruin them all? Or will love win the day? Get ready to spot all your favourite characters in this Young Adult modern reimagining of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, told in dual POV.

Keeping Up Appearances

Keeping Up Appearances

Elizabeth Stevens

Young Adult / Fantasy / Romance

Three's a crowd, but four's a war. Big girl undies? Check.Speech planned? Check.Nerves of steel? Check.A single crush? …not check…? What do you do when you find your best friend/crush kissing your other best friend on the day you were going to declare your feelings for him? You only agree to fake date your crush’s rival. The King of the Bows, popular golden (play)boy, and all around douche, Xander wouldn’t be my last choice for a boyfriend. Across the school, battlelines are drawn and sides are taken between the new ’it’ couple of my former best friends and the excitingly scandalous pairing of me and King Douche. Xander keeps distracting me from the plan; make Jason jealous. He insists on holding my hand and kissing me and being nice. Ugh. Xander’s not nice and he’s not the relationship type, but he’s doing a damned good job of acting both parts. He calls it ‘keeping up appearances’, I call it ‘take one more pass at my arse and I’ll break your nose’. They say all’s fair in love and war, but what’s so fair about falling for the wrong guy when your two best friends are on the other side of the battlelines?

Gray's Blade (No More Maybes #2)

Elizabeth Stevens

Young Adult / Fantasy / Romance

You’ve read Hannibal’s side.Now, read mine. Can one person really help you kill the monster inside? Maybe… I’m not a good guy. But, I love my little brother and I will do whatever it takes to keep him safe; the last thing I need is another dead body on my conscience. There were only two things I wanted in life; be there for Matty and lose myself for long enough to get some respite from the horrors of our past. Until I met her; the mud-streaked girl with the ability to arouse my mind as well as…other things. My captain of the A-team, Hannibal is as sweet and smart as she is sexy. But, the monster of my past – the one that created a monster in me – will not die and I can’t bring her into that. I try to pull away, to save her from the pain I’ll inevitably bring her. Except, my Hannibal’s a fighter and she won’t give up on me. No matter how many reasons I give her, that thing – that bond – between us only strengthens. Maybe Hannibal’s the reason I’ve been looking for to finally put the monster of my past to rest. Maybe she can give me the strength to finally kill the monster that lurks within me. Could she be my Gray’s Blade? *A sizzling YA romance about first love and learning to let go of a painful past, this is Cole’s story from his point of view. The companion novel, No More Maybes, is from Aurora’s point of view; much like the characters themselves, Aurora’s version is lighter, cleaner, and sweeter. Read through to the end of Gray’s Blade for a sneak peek at chapter one of Aurora’s side. Please be aware that this story is set in Australia and therefore uses Australian English spelling and syntax.* Not recommended for younger readers due to mature content.
