From the Inside Flap
for love is strongas death; jealousy is cruel as the grave.
Song of Solomon 8:6
In this lurid, lusty sequel to Pulse and Prejudice, deathshadows the newlywed Darcys from Pemberley to the parlors of Regency London tothe courtyards of Antebellum New Orleans. As Elizabeth discovers the trials andtravails of marriage to a vampire, can Darcy ever believe that she loves him ashe is? Or will his jealousy tear them apart?
"I want to thank Colette Saucier for taking the time (two years!) towrite such a thrilling tale that includes great historical details, bringing19th century New Orleans to life through the sights, sounds, and scenes sheincorporates into the Darcys time there."
Just Jane 1813
"This was an amazing sequel easily bringing me back into the storybegun in Pulse and Prejudice. Sequels sometimes can offer weak, insipidromance because the happily ever after has come and gone. In this case, it was reallyonly the beginning. I can easily recommend this to those who enjoy spicyhistorical paranormal romance blends."
Delighted Reader Book Reviews
From the Back Cover
"Elizabeth and Darcy's life after the wedding is anything but dull: passion, love and sex but also jealousy, love triangle, arguments and blood, a lot of blood. A vampire Darcy with the love of his cursed life gets to know the green monster of jealousy and the result can be very steamy. Colette Saucier knows how to solve a fight with your hubby!" Ana Darcy, My Vices and Weaknesses
"Dark, bloody, and savage all, as vampires wreak havoc or as, at times, Darcy expresses his desires and yearnings towards Elizabeth or even as he acts out to protect her. The end is one of deep drama--one which will stay with me in dreams and thoughts as it causes such angst for our couple." Sheila Majczan
"After taking the plunge into this dark and haunting world, I am bloody thrilled to say that I just loved this sequel! The story examines the beauties and frailties of Darcy and Elizabeth's love and devotion to each other while folding it into a world filled with gothic danger. It is action-packed and left me turning pages rather quickly, while at the same time being filled with well-developed characters whose inner turmoils make the reader empathize with each of their own plights." C.A. Pepe, Just Jane 1813
"The book is action-packed but also has fully-developed characters, and it convincingly creates a world of love and beauty as well as gothic danger. There's plenty of angst, and it's not all due to external forces; they both are battling internal struggles, as well. There is no predicting which direction the story is going to veer, and it delivers numerous surprises. It was hard to put down once I started reading." Debbie Brown, BrownSound Music
"I have been trying to find the words to describe how I felt, reading the second book in this series by Ms. Saucier. All I can think to write is, absolutely brilliant! She out did herself with this second story! To keep Darcy and Elizabeth so true to form and adapt it to the Vampire theme, was unreal. Simply brilliant writing." Claudine Dimuzio
