About The Book

Picking up where Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice left off, The Bad Miss Bennet takes readers on a wild Regency romp with Lydia Wickham, née Bennet, who finds herself in dire need of a new husband.

Lydia was never the most upstanding of the Bennet sisters, but who ever said that moral rectitude was fun? Mr Wickham turned out to be a disappointing husband in many aspects, the most notable of which being his early demise on the battlefields of Waterloo. And so Lydia Wickham, née Bennet, not yet twenty and full of enterprising spirit, is in urgent need of a wealthy replacement. A lesser woman, without Lydia’s natural ability to flirt uproariously on the dance floor and cheat seamlessly at the card table, would swoon in the wake of a dashing highwayman, a corrupt banker, and even an amorous Prince Regent. But on the hunt for a marriage that will make her rich, there’s nothing that Lydia won’t turn her hand to. While Mrs Wickham rattles around the continent from Paris to Venice and to the home of the disgraced Princess of Wales in Italy, you, dear reader, will be greatly diverted.
