Product Details


“King’s irresistible debut gives Pride and Prejudice a fresh look, transplanting the classic story to the sexy, sequined world of a contemporary burlesque club… Between the camaraderie and the costumes, this immersive look at the burlesque scene is sure to win many fans, Austenite or not.”Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Whether you loved the classic that inspired it or not, you’ll devour this steamy novel.”Good Housekeeping

“Deft and fun… An original take on the source material, filled with three-dimensional characters… A jaunty and sexy twist on a classic.”Kirkus Reviews

“Readers who enjoy sexy contemporary romance will be charmed by King’s light, irreverent retelling of Pride and Prejudice, set in the New York City burlesque scene.”Library Journal

“Vanessa King has written one of the freshest new takes on Pride and Prejudice I’ve ever read. With plenty of catch-you-off-guard moments of modern humor and sex-appeal, she still manages to maintain the heart-tugging longing and frustrations of the original. Darcy and Lizzie have never been so fun and sexy.”—Lyssa Kay Adams, author of The Bromance Book Club

“Sassy and sizzling! A fun play on Pride & Prejudice about the loves we find and the families we make.”—Virginia Kantra, author of Meg & Jo

A Certain Appeal is a fun romp into contemporary New York’s burlesque scene. King brings alive a fizzy Burlesque world with its pasties, boas, heels, backstage camaraderie and tensions, friendships and self-defined families, and all the drama of running such an establishment….A thoroughly enjoyable page turner.”—Soniah Kamal, author of Unmarriageable
“Vanessa King creates a vibrant cast of secondary characters led by a heroine to cheer for. A Certain Appeal is delightfully tantalizing, cover to cover. This book will make you want to shimmy!”—Alli Frank & Asha Youmans, authors of Tiny Imperfections
