Jane Austen heroine Elizabeth Bennet travels to the Isles of Scilly in a novel based on Pride and Prejudice.

Pirates and Prejudice, by American author Kara Louise, sees Lizzie accompany her father to the islands in the aftermath of refusing Mr Darcy's first proposal.


The synopsis reads: 'After Elizabeth Bennet refuses Mr Darcy’s offer of marriage, it takes a heavy toll on him. He withdraws to London and disappears near the docks, away from family, friends, and acquaintances. When he is mistaken for an escaped pirate, he is thrust into an adventure he would never have imagined. Will this be what he needs to forget the one woman he had come to love?


'When her aunt and uncle have to cancel their plans to tour the Lake District, Elizabeth Bennet has the opportunity to sail to the Isles of Scilly with her father. After a pleasant visit, the voyage home brings storms, a shipwreck, and pirates! When she is rescued by gallant Captain Smith, she finds herself inexplicably drawn to him. What will she do when she discovers he is the very man whose offer of marriage she refused just a few months earlier?'


Kara has self-published eight novels based on Pride and Prejudice since 2001.


Pirates and Prejudice is available on Amazon and Lulu.
