Oh, Mr. Rochester! Oh, Mr. Darcy!

Some original fans of “Jane Eyre” might be unhappy to discover that the female protagonist has “explosive sex with Mr Rochester” in a new erotic edition of the Bronte classic. But it’s all part of a publisher of adult fiction’s effort to give literary classics such as “Jane Eyre” and “Pride And Prejudice” an erotic makeover. The company said that it was “100% convinced” that there was a market for the racy versions of the 19th-century novels by authors Charlotte Bronte and Jane Austen and that the spicing up of the much-loved books will introduce the classics to “a new generation of readers.” Other titles to be published under the Clandestine Classics collection include Austen’s “Northanger Abbey” and Arthur Conan Doyle’s stories featuring Sherlock Holmes. Will Sherlock and Watson get it on?
