Présentation de l'éditeur

Elizabeth Bennet thinks she is a great judge of character. However, when Colonel Fitzwilliam decides to take her as his mistress, despite her feelings on the matter, Elizabeth is forced to reconsider. Though not fully violated, she knows that his attack would be the ruination of her entire family. Mr. Darcy, who she had judged to be arrogant, disdainful, and ill-tempered, offers his support and assistance in a gentle and caring manner.

Elizabeth must come to terms with her feelings of guilt and shame, conquer her fears, and learn to trust again.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Original, intelligent, rivetting. 11 novembre 2011
Par tachi1 - Publié sur Amazon.com

I have read many Pride and Prejudice adaptations. Some are fairly horrible. The majority fall in between--not complete wastes of time, but an experience not worth repeating. It is a rarity to find a truly good one. This is one such rarity.

The strangest thing is that I usually don't like the ones that are complete reinventions and radical changes. That is probably because most authors can't carry it off and awkwardness and irritation are the result. This is among the most extreme reinvention I can remember, but it was carried out with charm and intelligence.

If you pay close attention, you see a little modern consciousness creeping in now and then, but it is so well disguised in 19th century language and behavior that it's fully successful. The writing style, while not trying to pass for Jane Austen, nevertheless captures the spirit.

I am sometimes hesitant to buy books with only a few reviews (especially if they are 5 stars) as I assume they are from friends or family and I avoid first books like the plague. Now that I've gone back to read the product description, I'm even more amazed that I bought it. That description is a total turn off and implies that the sexual abuse was something more graphic or prolonged than it really was. It is one incident, right at the beginning, and is just the catalyst to develop the story a different way. It is basically a character-driven story emphasizing each person's emotions and reactions and these are the forces that move the plot. As character studies, I think it holds together very well. Elizabeth's and Darcy's thoughts, feelings, and behavior, especially, are extremely well handled.

I don't want to give away the plot but it is a Pride & Prejudice variation which begins at the point of Elizabeth's visit to Charlotte (anything before is assumed to coincide with the original). Beyond that, there are very few plot points that coincide, although the ending of the story is, thankfully, the same. With the exception of Colonel Fitzwilliam, all the other major characters retain their basic personalities. The amazing thing is that, given the drama of the first chapter, the rest of the book is cohesive and logical based on this alternate reality. All the persons involved behave in ways consistent with the way Jane Austen's core characters would have behaved under these definitely un-Austenesque circumstances.

I found it very stimulating and original and one of those books that I was sorry to have end and have put in my "Worth Re-reading" collection.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 From perfect misery to perfect bliss 5 novembre 2011
Par Robin Helm - Publié sur Amazon.com

I followed this story as it was being posted on a JAFF forum, and I was very pleased to see it in Kindle form. Colonel Fitzwilliam, a scoundrel, does what privileged rakes do best, and the honorable Darcy comes once more to the rescue of Elizabeth Bennet. I look forward with great anticipation to several happy hours rereading one of my favorite stories so well-written by one of my favorite authors.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 A Rake Really !!!! Oh No 20 novembre 2011
Par C. E. Davis - Publié sur Amazon.com

I did like this book. The story starts at Hunsford but goes in a different direction. Col Fitzwilliam is a rake and really assaults Elizabeth and tells her that she's to be his mistress. Anyway Darcy comes to the rescue. The story goes from there. I was not sure I liked Col Fitz being bad, but the journey Darcy and Eliz took to reach happiness was good. Would recommend book to JAFF readers.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 it was different. 23 octobre 2012

I have no regrets buying this book. It most certainly a different slant to P&P. I think there were some issues that the author did not get quite right as regards women who are violated, and I say that with the understanding that this was not a rape, but a violation of trust. So what I am saying is that her reactions fit more, a woman who was raped. I have always pictured Elizabeth as a woman of greater sense and understanding. In this story, I think she over did the withdrawing into herself. I liked the way she handled Mr. Darcy's feelings and compassion. I liked the book, it kept me reading and for that I gave it high marks.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I really enjoyed it! 11 avril 2012

It was hard for me to accept Colonel Fitzwilliam in the role of villain, but once I got passed that concern I really enjoyed this story. It kept all of the other characters true to Jane Austen's creation and took us on a journey, along with Elizabeth and Darcy, toward healing and eventual joy.
