After a series of courtship Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth end up getting married!
BooksHugBack
Regina Jeffers successfully weaves the vampire folklore with the beloved characters from Pride and Prejudice in spellbinding fashion.
S.C.Mema
There are more than just a few typos/grammar errors, too much modern language, and the ending (epilogue included) blows.

Format: Paperback
As an avid Austen fan and a person who have loved vampire stories for around 15 years, I was hoping that someone finally had gotten this little twist of a story right. I could really see Darcy as a vampire, brooding, sulky, irresistable and cursed, but... alas, it was not really what I wanted. While I appreciated the romance aspect of the story--and that is what it is, a romance--it was not very Austen-like. If that doesn't bother you, you will probably like this story because it is fun, flirty, and I must say neatly tied together by its mythology. I was hoping for a more true-to-the-novel story, and was distracted at times by the lines that she took directly from movies and/or the novel. I also had a very hard time imaginging Elizabeth attacking vampires. I know she was an avid walker, but ???
Overall, I would say it is a fun read, but it definitely does not have same "feel" as the world Jane Austen created.

My son bought Vampire Darcy's Desire for me for Christmas and I applaud his attempt at getting the 'perfect' gift, but I was quite disappointed with the book. The story was given to us on a silver platter by page 40, but the book went on for another 240 pages. The editing was horrible, these books are simply cranked out with little respect for the reader.
If you're into internet fanfic or vapid romance you'll like it, otherwise, look elsewhere.

Being a Pride and Prejudice fan, I thought this book would be an interesting reading twist...and it is. EXCEPT, I found the first two thirds to be unlike anything I expected.
The author created Elizabeth as aggressively sexual which I felt was not in keeping with her original character or the Regency time in which she is portrayed. Every other line seemed to be kissy..kissy to a point of "I have to have you". She could almost be perceived as a "fast" woman. Beside being repetitive, the story became boring with the same lines used over and over again by the author. Darcy's character fairs slightly better in some ways, but shows his strength diminished at times to almost a wimp. I did not feel these were the people we've come to love in Austen's book, vampires or not. The last third of the story, however, kept one's attention and was worth the read. The vampire sequences with Wickham, Elizabeth and Darcy were well done and quite exciting....but the story probably could have been written the same way using a Tom, Dick and Mary. Sorry....only 2 stars.

I love this book, it had me captured from the beginning to the end. I love the way Darcy calls Elizabeth,Vixen. I read a few bad reviews, but I guess it depends on taste because this book was great. I wish we could go further with a sequel, especially something that was stated in epilogue I am a bit confused about, but if I say what it is than it will be a spoiler. So, I will just make due of what I think the particularly character meant when talking about a name.

I greatly enjoyed Regina Jeffer's book, Mr. Darcy's Desire. It was a well-researched, interesting story with a compelling plot and vivid characters. For those of us who are Darcy addicts, this book is a great fix. The brooding, dark vampire Darcy fits very well with canon, and as usual, he is more concerned with duty and protecting those he loves than he is with his own desires. Wickham's character as an archetypical villain is also satisfyingly close to Austen's selfish, vengeful anti-hero. I highly recommend this book for romantic chills this Halloween.

I found this book to be simply TERRIBLE. I mean, I thought the ideas and plot points in the book had a lot of POTENTIAL to be great, but the authors handling of them just fell flat.

The books worst element is the enormously nauseating romance scenes. Every five pages since Darcy is introduced is a cheesy "I Want You, But Can't Have You" moment for our two protagonists. Every single scene with them is the SAME until Colonel Fitzwilliam pops up in the end, as the author frantically tries to "diversify" the plot by randomly adding a love triangle in the last two chapters. It takes one for the good colonel to fall in love with his cousin's wife and one for him to struggle with his feelings of guilt and jealousy and eventually come to accept that he and Elizabeth just weren't meant to be. And all of this is in the middle of an incredibly fragmented and random climax where they are all facing Wickam and his minions in a Northumberland graveyard, where they repeatedly scream and become bloodied and ripped up but NONE OF THE LOCALS SEEM TO NOTICE.

Th characters were possibly even worst than the nonsensical plot twists. Darcy, Elizabeth, Colonel Fitzwilliam, and Wickam were absolutely NOTHING like the Austen characters we all know and love. I mean, I understood when I began to read the book that the characters were going to be different because the plot would have different elements added in, but God, she could've at least TRIED to make the changes BELIEVABLE. Darcy as the tragic hero, I can get, but Elizabeth as a mushy, needy nympho (characeristics the author valiantly tries to disguise behind horse-riding and swashbuckling skills)and Colonel Fitzwilliam as the knee-jerk, last minute "competitor" for Elizabeth's heart are just a little beyond my Austenian comprehension.
