You're (Not) The One

Most women dream of finding the love of their life. Lucy just wants to lose him...

Venice, one of the world's most romantic cities, lives by the legend of the bridge of sighs: When a woman kisses the man of her dreams under the bridge at sunset, she will be together with him forever. So eighteen-year-old Lucy seals her fate in the blush of first love with Nate.

Yet ten years later, the pair has completely lost contact-until the day Lucy arrives at Nate's luxury Manhattan apartment with paintings he has purchased from the gallery where she is newly employed. The legend has reunited the couple, and Lucy is overjoyed-until the state of their union is misery.

Can destiny be undone?

"Lottie," Charlotte's twenty-one-year-old self, drives onto the scene at the wheel of a rusty, orange Volkswagen Beetle identical to Charlotte's first UK ride.

Me and Mr Darcy

Every girl is looking for their Mr Darcy...

After a string of disastrous relationships, Emily Albright has decided she’s had it with modern-day men.

Forget going out on dates, she’d rather curl up with Pride and Prejudice and step into a time where men were dashing, devoted and honourable, strode across fields in breeches, and weren’t into splitting the bill, two-timing and internet porn.

So when her best friend invites her to Mexico for a week of margaritas and men, Emily decides to book a guided tour of Jane Austen country instead. She knows she’s not going to find her dream man here. The coach tour is full of pensioners, apart from one Mr Spike Hargreaves, a foul-tempered journalist sent to write a piece on why Mr Darcy’s been voted the man most women would love to date.

But then she walks into a room and finds herself face-to-face with Darcy himself.
And every woman’s fantasy suddenly becomes one woman’s reality…
