Rainy Days is one of my top favorite Pride and Prejudice variations! I don’t know how many times I’ve reread this! But with all the great JAFF books out there I haven’t lacked any new reading material. Needless to say, it’s been a while since I’ve reread this. So, recently, I took the time.What if, Elizabeth, during one of her long morning walks, gets caught in a torrential downpour? As she is seeking shelter at a near by cottage, Elizabeth is almost run over by Darcy on horseback. Startled by Elizabeth, the horse rears up, throwing Darcy to the ground then runs off. With nowhere else to go, Darcy accompanies Elizabeth to the cottage. Spending time alone together affords them a chance to really get to know each other. Right away Darcy realizes Elizabeth has a very low opinion of him and Elizabeth learns that Mr. Darcy finds her more than tolerable. Darcy, who has been fighting his feelings for Elizabeth all along, now knows he cannot let her go.
