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 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 thought "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" could not be outdone for the monster P&P craziness. I was wrong! "Mr. Darcy's Desire" was fantastic! My Darcy is a Vampire who is tempted by the blood of Elizabeth Darcy! After a series of courtship Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth end up getting married! Then the reader gets to journey through the rest of the book as Mr. Darcy, Elizabeth, and Colonel Fitzwilliam bring down Vampire Wickaham who has kidnapped Lydia and made a small army of vampire/undead minions. Ugh... can we say awesome!

With some juicy romance scenes between Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy this smutty vampire romance is a perfect pleasure read. I can't understand how many typos made it past the editor, quite disturbing actually, but other than that this one is great. Another monster P&P adaptation is a success. Favorite piece of the book is that Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth get married half way through the book and the romance continues to grow on rather then ending with the marriage. Also enjoyed the in depth story line of Elizabeth and Georgiana becoming closer friends. Might actually read this one again some day.

I have read many P&P adaptations and variations and sequels over the past 20 years or more! I found this one to be exceptional! I was hooked from the very beginning and could not put the book down until the end! I noticed a few editing issues but nothing to distract me from the engrossing story. I enjoyed reading Darcy's struggles and Elizabeth's strength and devotion throughout! I love the way Regina handles the romantic side of the story also. It is more daring, which fits in brilliantly with this story of vampires and legends. If you are looking for a great fun read, this is definitely a book worth looking at! If you want more of the original, then read the original!
Great work Regina and I look forward to purchasing more of your novels.

What a wonderful retelling of "Pride and Prejudice", I love vampire books and Jane Austen and Ms. Jeffers combined the two to create a masterful account of Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth!! I was afraid to read this when I purchased it because I did not want my romantized vision of Mr. Darcy destroyed...but instead a new stronger Mr. Darcy emerged!! Elizabeth remaines headstrong and stubborn as in the original so I was thoroughly impressed with Ms. Jeffers ability to stay true to Ms. Austen's version yet tell a new story that both engrossed and spellbound me!! Thank you Ms. Jeffers, as with all your Austenesque books you hold true to the form but bring a whole new and exciting contemporary retelling of these wonderful masterpieces!!!

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.

If you love Stephanie Meyer's Twilight Series then by all means pick up this book and enjoy. It has all the romance of Pride and Prejudice mixed with the vampire genre. You can't get better than this one. I have read many "mixed" paranormal-classic mashes. This is the best. It was the first book of Ms. Jeffers that I have read and now I am an avid fan. Her masterful mix of Austin characters, Scottish lore, and a great story is just wonderful. This is my new favorite comfort book (I'm not allowed comfort foods they're fattening). It's the one I travel with and the one you can always find at my bedside. Edward and Vampire Darcy will forever be my favorite lore characters.
