Being Collins is worse than being the Frog Prince?

pexels-160904You bet it is, according to Mr. Darcy.

And he should know, because of his body swap experience in Darcy By Any Other Name.

(Thanks to yours truly …)

This week we have a treat: Darcy is guest posting at Darcyholic Diversions.

He is! And he’s giving away an e-book too.

Curious about what Darcy has to say? I’ve included a smidge of his rant article.

The Frog Prince Had It Easy

A guest post by Fitzwilliam Darcy

Perchance you recall that frog fellow in the fairy tale.  He’s a handsome prince, caught in a spell that changes him from a man into a toadish amphibian. The cure? Love’s first kiss. And therein lies the dilemma. What woman would ever kiss a frog?

I can go one better. What woman would ever kiss William Collins?

No one, that’s who. And I am in a position to know, because in Darcy By Any Other Name, Laura Hile has made me, Fitzwilliam Darcy, switch bodies with William Collins.

You read that right, with Collins—that podgy, pompous bounder who can empty a room simply by opening his mouth. A kiss from adorable Elizabeth Bennet? Not on your life.

As Collins, I’d have a better chance if I were the frog.

I would! See here, ugly animals are much cuter than ugly men. Then too, a talking frog is a miracle. A talking Collins is a menace.

That Frog Prince is a lucky dog. In fact, all of the heroes in romantic fairy tales have it better than I do. Don’t believe me? Read on …

Darcy-beachYou’ll find the rest of his article — plus details about entering the giveaway — at Darcyholic Diversions.

Entry deadline is Sunday, February 19, 2017.

Not quite in time for Valentine’s Day, but a treat for you if you win.

One thought on “Being Collins is worse than being the Frog Prince?

  1. I absolutely loved this book and have recommended it to family and friends. I would so dearly love if this were adapted to screen. I laughed and teared up, and I haven’t done that in any P&P book for quite a while! Thank you, Ms. Hile.
