Mitzi does a wonderful job of staying on track with the original Pride and Prejudice plot line, all while adding in plenty of sizzling sex along the way. Even if you've never read the original, this story is still well worth checking out.

About author

Pride and Prejudice: Hidden Lusts isn't an original work by Mitzi Szereto, but is instead an erotic retelling of a classic story. In the back of the book, there's a single page with a long paragraph about Mitzi and what she's generally up to. You can find her blog and Web TV channel listed there as well.

Content / Style / Audience

This book has two things going for it: one being that it's basically Pride and Prejudice, and two being that it's got lots of sexy additions.

I'll cover the plot first, and based on my research at Sparknotes, the plot matches up pretty well with the original. Minor details may be slightly different, but all of the major ones seem to be in place. So if you've already read it and enjoyed the outcome, you'll get that with plenty of sex. If you haven't already read it, then enjoy the story!

The sex is pleasantly varied among pretty much all of your basic genres. There's your regular heterosexual sex, homosexual sex, lesbian sex, masturbation, and a bit of kink involved as well. It's also spread out through the book pretty well, not leaving you feeling like any one section is too full of one particular kind.

As for how it all flowed together, I thought it was pretty good. For the most part it seemed as though that was the way Jane Austen intended the book to be, although the character of Lydia throws me off when I get on a reading roll. To me, she seems a lot like that overbearing and not well planned out fanfiction that just has everything happen all at once and oh man look here's everybody and we're gonna have a super orgy!!!!! Some may enjoy how over the top she is, but I wasn't terribly fond of her. Aside from that, I did enjoy how well the story flowed.


The cover is actually pretty nice, at least to me anyway. It's your basic paperback, but it doesn't scream "I'm a dirty, dirty novel" at all. The cover features a photo of a woman in period clothing playing with the strings of her top. The back has excerpts from reviews, but it's hard to tell this is anything other than a regular book without actually inspecting it.


It took me a little while to get into this book, but once I did I really enjoyed it. The character of Lydia kept throwing me off of the story so much because to me, she reads like a bad fanfic character; just so over the top that there's no way anything like that would ever happen. I haven't read the original Pride and Prejudice yet, but after reading this story I now have plans to. It's well written and I'm very pleased with my first erotic novel.

    Great review. Your assessment seems to be right on with what I've read so far. The main difference I see is it is MUCH less of an epistolary novel (a novel that uses letters - as in what we wrote before email) than the original, but I don't know how much of that the average erotica reader would dig and if it would really work with the erotica format. There is some of it though, enough to be true to the original while keeping up with the times, if that makes sense? Also, in Austen's original, Lydia is over-the-top and annoying as all hell as well, so it's not really Mitzi's fault, more Austen's. However, she does serve to make everyone else (especially Elizabeth) look better by comparison, lol. I'm really digging this book so far, which surprises me, being a HUGE fan of the original. Anyway, I'm rambling. Great review, as always, and, as I said, your assessments seem to be right on the money! Great job!

    Kake, thank you. Not having read the original and only being able to get key plot points from the internet, I didn't realize that Lydia was so over the top in the original. I have a sneaking suspicion I would feel the same way about her, but I also like even more how Mitzi did this then with keeping things as close to the original as possible.

    LOL! I always felt like this story could use some sex. I never could bring myself to read Pride & Prejudice. Sounds like a fun romp. Kink and lesbian sex for the win! Lol
