Summary

Packaged in handsome and affordable trade editions, Clydesdale Classics is a new series of essential literary works. From the musings of literary geniuses like Mark Twain in The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn to the striking personal narrative of Harriet Jacobs in Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl, this new series is a comprehensive collection of our literary history through the words of the exceptional few.Originally published in 1813, the novel Pride and Prejudice has been a favorite of literature readers for more than two centuries. Set in turn-of-the-nineteenth-century England, the story largely takes place in the beautiful London countryside. The narrative centers on Elizabeth Bennet, one of the five unmarried daughters of a high-class country gentleman, as she struggles with common moral and social issues for young women associated with England’s landed gentry class. At a lavish ball, Elizabeth’s eldest and most beautiful sister, Jane, is introduced to the rich, eligible, new resident, Mr. Bingley, who quickly takes a liking to her. All the while, Mr. Bingley’s seemingly arrogant friend Darcy refuses to dance with Elizabeth, despite her immeasurable wit and charm. But, like all great love stories, things change.Dubbed the number one romantic book by Time magazine, its influence is still felt today through various literary and cinematic adaptations. Pride and Prejudice tells of a young girl who navigates her way through high society, family conflict, and love with spirit and humor.

    Over my dead body. 
     
    That's what I told Gracie when she informed me of her plan to pick some random guy she met online to get rid of her pesky virginity. 
     
    If anyone is touching her, it's going to be me. 
     
    I shouldn't even be considering it, but I can't get it out of my head: her, under me, begging me. 
     
    *** 
    Arrogant. Cocky. Prick. 
     
    Those are the words I’d use to describe my older brother’s dangerously handsome best friend. 
     
    When he learned of my plan to kick off my white cotton briefs, ditching my good girl persona once and for all by losing my virginity to the first eligible bachelor I could find, he flipped out. Said over his dead body. 
     
    He says if anyone’s going to do it, it’s going to be him. 
     
    I hate that I’m even considering his offer. 
     
    But I am … I sooo am. 
     
    Ever since he suggested it, all I can think about is his cocky smile on those full lips as he’s driving in to me. 
     
    But if we cross that line … will I ever be able to go back? 
     
    MONSTER PRICK, a sexy romantic comedy, is a spin off novella from SCREWED, but can be read as a standalone, as it features a new couple.

    When a dashing young gentleman runs into Wentmore Hall bleeding from his shoulder and crying, “Save me! Save me! If you cannot hide me, they will kill me!” the quick-witted beautiful young Novella Wentworth hides him in the secret passage that was used centuries ago by Catholic Priests escaping from the wrath of Queen Elizabeth and later the Royalists and the Cromwellians. 
    The young man, Vale Chester, has been shot by Novella’s neighbour, Lord Grimstone, who demands to search the house for his quarry.
    	Novella’s father, a General fighting in the Duke of Wellington’s Army in Spain, never liked Lord Grimstone, so she is naturally suspicious of him and his motives.
    	And sure enough she finds that Vale Chester is a Government agent who suspects Lord Grimstone to be the leader of a smuggling gang landing French luxury goods illegally in England and therefore a traitor, as the English are at war with Napoleon Bonaparte.
    	Taking Vale’s top secret coded message to the Secretary of State for War, Novella finds herself a part of the plan to capture Lord Grimstone and his gang of smugglers and a terrifying adventure begins. 
    Now her own life, as well as Vale’s, is at stake and, as love blossoms in her heart, she finds that it is for his safety that she cares most.
