Présentation de l'éditeur
What if Elizabeth had met Georgiana in Ramsgate?
‘Now,’ said Mr Darcy, as he settled himself back against the squabs. ‘You had better tell me everything. Hold nothing back. If you have been involved in this in any way, I will find out, so you had better tell me at once.’
‘Involved in it?’ demanded Elizabeth angrily. ‘What do you take me for?’
‘I take you for a young woman who has scraped an acquaintance with an heiress at a seaside resort,’ he remarked.
‘You are the most insufferable man I have ever met,’ she said. ‘Are you always so arrogant?’
‘Arrogant?’ he asked in surprise.
‘Yes. Arrogant, high handed, contemptuous and supercilious,’ she said with a spark in her eyes. ‘You declared me to be an unsuitable friend for your sister when you knew nothing about me, and now you have the effrontery to imply that I might have had something to do with your sister’s abduction, when the fault lies squarely at your door.’
‘Miss Bennet, you go too far,’ he said, with an angry set of his mouth.
When Elizabeth Bennet sees Georgiana being abducted by George Wickham, she is forced to turn to Mr Darcy, who has made it clear that she is beneath him. When Georgiana has been rescued, Elizabeth is thankful she will never have to see Mr Darcy again. But fate has other plans . . .
