DISENCHANTED by Kara Pleasants

As a renowned wizard, Fitzwilliam Darcy thinks he is familiar with most of the spells, enchantments, and magic practiced in the wizarding world. When he reluctantly joins his friend Bingley in Meryton, a small town not known for its magic, he is startled to stumble upon the rare gift possessed by Miss Elizabeth Bennet. The daughter of a poor country squire, she possesses a singular talent: she is not only immune to magic, but she can counter enchantments as well. Despite their initial dislike of each other, the two draw closer as the threat from the Thieving Necromancer, a dark wizard stealing people’s magic, grows more dangerous. As Darcy battles nefarious wizards and Elizabeth unravels ever more difficult spells, they uncover dark secrets and break mysterious enchantments. But love may prove the most important magic of all.

Comments: I love the idea of mixing magic with Jane Austen. This is one of the better renditions. I love P&P on principle and this has all the elements of that fantastic romance. It is clean and well written but even the surprising elements are predictable which made me feel like I've read this story before.
