• Grandir au côté de quatre soeurs n'a pas été facile pour la maladroite Mary Bennet, amoureuse invétérée des livres. Alors que toutes sont établies ou presque, Mary vit encore dans la demeure familiale, où sa mère n'a de cesse de lui répéter qu'elle finira vieille fille. Lorsque son aînée Lydia et son fiancé sont au coeur d'un nouveau scandale, qui met à mal l'image de la famille Bennet, Mary est éloignée à High Tor, chez Jane et son époux Mr. Bingley. Auprès du couple, elle rencontre l'élégant Henry Walsh, qui l'étourdit aussitôt. Serait-ce de l'attirance qu'elle éprouve pour ce séduisant gentleman ?

  • A romantic time travel story that's ideal for fans of novels by Meg Cabot and Donna Jo Napoli--and, of course, Shakespeare.
    Miranda has Shakespeare in her blood: she hopes one day to become a Shakespearean actor like her famous parents. At least, she does until her disastrous performance in her school's staging of The Taming of the Shrew. Humiliated, Miranda skips the opening-night party. All she wants to do is hide.
    Fellow cast member, Stephen Langford, has other plans for Miranda. When he steps out of the backstage shadows and asks if she'd like to meet Shakespeare, Miranda thinks he's a total nutcase. But before she can object, Stephen whisks her back to 16th century England--the world Stephen's really from. He wants Miranda to use her acting talents and modern-day charms on the young Will Shakespeare. Without her help, Stephen claims, the world will lost its greatest playwright.
    Miranda isn't convinced she's the girl for the job. Why would Shakespeare care about her? And just who is this infuriating time traveler, Stephen Langford? Reluctantly, she agrees to help, knowing that it's her only chance of getting back to the present and her "real" life. What Miranda doesn't bargain for is finding true love . . . with no acting required.
