WeWriWa and Snippet Sunday : A Gentleman's Reputation

Thank you for stopping by! 
In this scene from Betrothed To Mr. Darcy, Mr. Bingley and Mr. Darcy are sharing their thoughts on the importance of a gentleman's reputation. 

 “What do I care about my reputation? I have money in the bank and soon I will marry the most beautiful and agreeable woman in all of England. You are the one who is overly concerned with the opinions of others, though why you care, I do not know.”
“I care,” Darcy’s firm voice emphasized his point, “because all a gentleman has is his reputation. Once he loses the good opinion of others, it is lost forever.”
“The good opinion of society can be bought and sold. The true love of a good woman, however, cannot.”
“It may not be able to be purchased, but it still comes at a hefty price,” Mr. Darcy said, then exited before Bingley could respond with more of his lovesick drivel. 

Betrothed to Mr. Darcy will be available September 18! I'm pretty excited.

  2. Always so pitch perfect on the tone! Another excellent excerpt!

  3. I think they are never going to agree on this point.

  4. Great character voices once again.


I love to hear from readers! Thanks for being part of the conversation.
