1st Place Winner in Category, Chatelaine Awards Romantic Fiction*
Austenprose "Readers' Choice, Top 5 Books of the Year"*

In this thrilling and sensual adaptation of the classic British love story, Elizabeth Bennet and the citizens of Hertfordshire know Mr. Darcy to be a proud, unpleasant sort of man, but they never suspect the dark secret of his true nature. He is not a man at all - but a vampire.

When the haughty and wealthy Fitzwilliam Darcy arrives in the rural county of Hertfordshire, he finds he cannot control his attraction to Elizabeth Bennet - a horrifying thought because, as she is too far below his social standing to ignite his heart, he fears she must appeal to the dark impulses he struggles to suppress.

Set against the vivid backdrop of historical Regency England, this adaptation of Pride and Prejudice follows the cursed Mr. Darcy as he endeavours to overcome both his love and his bloodlust for Miss Elizabeth Bennet. Although Pulse and Prejudice adheres to the original plot and style of the Jane Austen classic romance, it is neither a "mash-up" nor "fan fiction" but an imaginative, thrilling variation told primarily from Mr. Darcy's point of view as he descends into the seedier side of London and introduces Elizabeth to a world of passion and the paranormal she never knew existed.

Pulse and Prejudice
has been meticulously researched for historical accuracy and remains faithful to nineteenth century literary conventions and Miss Austen's narrative. The author spent fifteen months traveling to Britain and researching Regency England, as well as vampire lore and literature. In the few instances in which the plots overlap, excerpts from canon have been expertly woven in so that prior knowledge of Pride and Prejudice is not required for full enjoyment of this remarkable novel.

Please Note:
Adult content. Although the first three volumes adhere to the plot of Miss Austen's classic romance, a fourth volume - Beyond Pride and Prejudice - has been added, which contains scenes of a sensual nature. Readers who would find this offensive or prefer Darcy and Elizabeth to remain chaste should skip Volume IV and proceed from Volume III to the Epilogue.
