Description

"Vampire Darcy's Desire" presents Jane Austen's "Pride and Prejudice" as a heart-pounding vampire romance filled with passion and danger.
Tormented by a 200-year-old curse and his fate as a half-human/half-vampire dhampir, Mr. Darcy vows to live forever alone rather than inflict the horrors of life as a vampire on an innocent wife. But when he comes to Netherfield Park, he meets the captivating Elizabeth Bennet.
As a man, Darcy yearns for Elizabeth, but as a vampire, he is also driven to possess her. Uncontrollably drawn to each other, they are forced to confront a pride and prejudice never before imaginedwhile wrestling with the seductive power of forbidden love. Meanwhile, dark forces are at work all around them. Most ominous is the threat from George Wickham, the purveyor of the curse, a demon who vows to destroy each generation of Darcys.
Written in authentic Austen style and faithful to its Regency-era setting, "Vampire Darcy's Desire" retells the greatest love story of all time in a hauntingly imaginative fashion.
