Pride and Prejudice Annotated (Clandestine Classics)
Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen and Amy Armstrong
The Classics Exposed…
When the highly eligible and overtly handsome Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy first arrives in Hertfordshire, Elizabeth Bennet is instantly captivated, but his proud and arrogant manner is at odds with the heated glances he throws her way. Electrifying sexual tension soon leads to an unexpected kiss and Elizabeth’s world is turned upside down.
Misconceptions ensue and judgements abound but the attraction between the young couple endures. Can Elizabeth overlook social convention and give in to her desires for Darcy or will their Pride and Prejudice tear them apart?
Review From Literary Nymphs Reviews
Ms. Armstrong adds a little heat between Darcy and Elizabeth that show the chemistry between them is strong. The addition of Elizabeth’s constant thoughts about Darcy and his about Elizabeth were added smoothly into the story...I happen to read the classic every year, as it is a family tradition. This version will more than likely be alternately read as nothing is lost in the translation and in some parts, actually enhance the story.
Review From Night Owl Romance Reviews
Amy Armstrong conveys contemporary ardour with this revisited classic. Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy have long been my favourite romantic couple and this adaptation does not change my thinking. The sexual tension had always been there but with this retelling it takes centre stage and is so artfully done that I felt almost as if this were how it were originally written. This is definitely not the Pride and Prejudice I remember reading as an adolescent girl and while the young dreamer I was loved the sweet and tender interactions this story appealed to my mature passionate tastes. I enjoyed the fact that all the original wit and cleverness remained as did all my favourite characters. Whether you are a long-time Jane Austen fan, if you are simply curious to see just what this collaboration entails or if you are looking for something different I recommend you pick this one up and enjoy the sensual journey of this timeless tale.

landlord, and the best master,” said she, “that ever lived, not like the wild young men nowadays, who think of nothing but themselves. There is not one of his tenants or servants but will give him a good name. Some people call him proud, but I am sure I never saw anything of it. To my fancy, it is only because he does not rattle away like other young men.” “In what an amiable light does this place him!” thought Elizabeth, and wished she had known that side to Darcy’s personality, if it were
single.” “It is no such thing. Lydia does not leave me because she is married, but only because her husband’s regiment happens to be so far off. If that had been nearer, she would not have gone so soon.” But the spiritless condition which this event threw her into was shortly relieved, and her mind opened again to the agitation of hope, by an article of news which then began to be in circulation. The housekeeper at Netherfield had received orders to prepare for the arrival of her master, who
modesty?” Mr Bingley asked. “The indirect boast, for you are really proud of your defects in writing, because you consider them as proceeding from a rapidity of thought and carelessness of execution, which, if not estimable, you think at least highly interesting. The power of doing anything with quickness is always prized much by the possessor, and often without any attention to the imperfection of the performance. When you told Mrs Bennet this morning that if you ever resolved upon quitting
evening, and I take this opportunity of soliciting yours, Miss Elizabeth, for the two first dances especially, a preference which I trust my cousin Jane will attribute to the right cause, and not to any disrespect for her.” Elizabeth felt herself completely taken in. She had fully proposed being engaged by Mr Wickham for those very dances, and to have Mr Collins instead! Her liveliness had never been worse timed. There was no help for it, however. Mr Wickham’s happiness and her own were perforce
discard the memory of how remarkable she had felt in his arms, how, when he had looked down at her from his position between her thighs, a fiery passion had ignited within, one that made her feel all was as it should be—that she was exactly where she needed to be. She could not linger on how much she desired him still, despite her dislike and disappointment in his actions. To do so would only make her decision more difficult and it was the correct decision—it had to be. At length, with a voice
