Would the gorgeous Mr Darcy, pictured on the left in the infamous wet shirt, have been shocked if he had met the young lady on the right in his garden?
This is my latest cover from Ulverscroft LP and for some reason the artist has portrayed her in what look like her undregarments- and Victorian ones at that!
The heroine is, in fact, ash blonde and very aware that she is an aristrocat and is a stickler for convention. She would rather die than appear clothed in this way. Her arms bare, and her neck line plunging - and in the garden too!
Lady Allegra Humphry was shocked to the core when her head groom was obliged to place his arms around her when she fainted, I can just imagine her reaction if she met Mr Darcy (Colin Firth) emerging from her lake in a dripping wet shirt.
Would he have been shocked or enchanted?
This LP version of,THE MESALLIANCE is available from Amazon and to borrow from a UK library. My latest book, A DEBT OF HONOUR, (set in Constable country, Dedham, Essex) is out at the end of this month.
