Product Description

The long-awaited sequel to the definitive vampire adaptation of PRIDE AND PREJUDICE is finally here!

ADULT CONTENT: Contains violence and intense sexual situations.

In this lurid, lusty sequel to Pulse and Prejudice, death shadows the newlywed Darcys from Pemberley to the parlors of Regency London to the courtyards of Antebellum New Orleans. As Elizabeth discovers the trials and travails of marriage to a vampire, can Darcy ever believe that she loves him as he is? Or will his jealousy tear them apart?

This is the sequel to Pulse and Prejudice; however, as it is not an Austen adaptation, the reader will find it darker, bloodier, and more provocative than Book 1.

5.0 out of 5 stars Colette Saucier has written a sexier, more creative, and engrossing sequel to "Pulse and Prejudice!" 25 September 2016
By Claudine A Pepe (Just Jane 1813) - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Please note that this book is the second book in The Confession of Mr Darcy, Vampire series and that it will contain spoilers for anyone who hasn’t read the first book in this series, Pulse and Prejudice: The Confession of Mr Darcy, Vampire.

Will Elizabeth decide to leave Darcy after she realizes the full extent of the threats and secrets that are revealed during their early marriage?

As someone who came to JAFF looking to read Pride and Prejudice sequels, it still surprises me that I am able to love so many different kinds of variations. The key for me, when I am enjoying a variation that veers very far from canon, is that I find that the characters resemble Austen’s own characters in many ways and that the story engages all of my senses. Colette Saucier’s Pulse and Prejudice: The Confession of Mr Darcy, Vampire was one of the first JAFF paranormal books that I ever had the pleasure to read and ever since then, I have been eagerly anticipating the sequel, Dearest Bloodiest Elizabeth: Book II: The Confession of Mr Darcy, Vampire. After taking the plunge into this dark and haunting world, I am bloody thrilled to say that I just loved this sequel because Colette Saucier took an interesting storyline from her first book in this series and brought it to a whole new level. From the very first pages, readers will know that this is a darker, grittier, and angstier book than the first one.

It’s clear from the beginning of this story that Darcy and Elizabeth have a very passionate and loving relationship, as they enjoy their time together at Pemberley. After all, Elizabeth has trusted a vampire to take care of her for the rest of her life and take care of her Darcy certainly does. But, even a vampire who has sworn not to do certain things can get a bit carried away and before long Darcy and Elizabeth face a dire situation; one that can only be made “right” with Colonel Fitzwilliam’s interventions. Yet, once Colonel Fitzwilliam intervenes, his trust in Darcy has been completely shattered. As he struggles to allow Elizabeth to stay married to such a creature, he tries to intervene on her behalf.

This early mishap in their marriage will have lingering effects on their relationships, as events start to spiral out of control for Darcy and Elizabeth. After he finds himself in a situation where he must decided whether or not to use his powers on someone close to him, the master of Pemberley soon finds himself being threatened by a dwarf dhampir, who has reappeared in his life. The dhampir starts making demands that Darcy flatly refuses to comply with, no matter what inducement are being offered to him. But, when the ultimate threats are far too damaging to bear, Darcy finds himself tasked to comply with the dwarf dhampir’s commands; travel to America to locate and kill his arch-enemy, Wickham.

So off we go with the Darcys to New Orleans, along with Darcy’s trustworthy and insightful valet, Rivens. This ultimately became my absolute favorite part of their story, mainly due to Colette Saucier’s efforts in bringing 19th century New Orleans to life through the sights, sounds, and scenes she incorporates into the Darcys time on New Orleans. While Darcy and Elizabeth go in searching in earnest of Wickham, it quickly becomes clear that this will be a more difficult task than they have initially anticipated because the local society wants nothing to do with them. After exhausting all of their ideas related to using their wealth and other “tricks” to get close to the locals, Elizabeth decides to resort to her final idea in their quest; she pens a request to Lady Calmut, the French lady who Colonel Fitzwilliam is courting, asking her to join them in New Orleans to assist them. Lady Calmut and Colonel Fitzwilliam eventually arrive in New Orleans, but Colonel Fitzwilliam makes it pretty clear that his distrust of Darcy has not faded, and that he’s more willing to serve as a friend to Elizabeth, than to his own cousin.

Once Wickham is located, Darcy and Elizabeth learn a lot more about what’s truly going on in New Orleans amongst the “locals.” Darcy must decide if he trusts Wickham’s intentions, even when Elizabeth flatly refuses to believe any good can come from cavorting with the likes of Wickham. Eventually, Darcy and Elizabeth find themselves at odds with one another; will Darcy’s pride lead them both to suffer from his reckless desires, or will they come to see eye to eye regarding what’s essential in their lives?

Dearest Bloodiest Elizabeth: Book II: The Confession of Mr Darcy, Vampire is everything I was hoping for from this sequel, and possibly, even more! Ms. Saucier certainly found a way to bring a lot of interesting angst and new revelations to her sequel. This is not the type of relationship that Austen purists would prefer to read between Darcy and Elizabeth, but for JAFF readers who enjoy a little bite in their JAFF, this is the kind of JAFF paranormal story that will not only engage your heart, it will also engage your mind. I relished learning about the history of New Orleans and how certain aspects of their life in New Orleans were difficult for the Darcys to adjust to due to the culture of the area.

The book also touches upon the subject of slavery amongst during this time period in New Orleans and how the Darcys’ values sharply clashed with the values of the citizens of New Orleans. It was fascinating to see how wealthy people from such different backgrounds found it hard to understand each other and how they sometimes couldn’t see that they were also more alike in some ways to the very same people that they disliked.

The loving relationship between Darcy and Elizabeth established in the first book continues here, and becomes even more intense, now that they are a married couple. There are some very intimate scenes between the couple, though they are very well-written and generally integral to the story. There’s plenty of angst between our dear couple, and it’s a nice combination of external and internal forces that they struggle with throughout the book. Darcy battles his own demons throughout the story, as he deplores his “condition,” and can’t even bear to hear even the word “vampire.” Compounding his anxieties is the tremendous guilt he harbors for bringing his beloved wife into his abnormal life. Elizabeth painfully subscribes to her own set of concerns, as she realizes she still has a lot to learn about the “man” she has married and struggles to regain confidence in her own judgments after she witnesses aspects of Darcy’s “condition” that frighten her to her very core. How can she herself not also be evil to find such a monstrous creature so irresistible?

The book is action-packed and left me turning pages rather quickly on my Kindle, while at the same time the story is filled with well-developed characters whose inner turmoils make the reader empathize with each of their own plights. Ms. Saucier’s story examines the beauties and frailties of Darcy and Elizabeth’s love and devotion to each other, while she also folds it into a world filled with gothic danger. While the ending does not leave us with a cliffhanger, the door is left open for a third book, if Ms. Saucier should ever decide to treat us to another sequel in this series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful follow-up to Pulse and Prejudice 15 August 2016
By Debbie B. - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
It would seem that being married to a vampire creates just as much difficulty as actually being a vampire. I enjoyed Pulse and Prejudice: The Confession of Mr Darcy, Vampire, the predecessor to this, but I think I enjoyed this even more. There is no predicting which direction the story is going to veer, and it delivers numerous surprises.

As it begins, Darcy and Elizabeth are now newlyweds at Pemberley enjoying the bliss of their unfettered time together, but it doesn't take long for problems to jeopardize their happiness. First Elizabeth requires Col. Fitzwilliam's assistance to save her life. The circumstances create such a severe breach in his relationship with Darcy that Fitzwilliam begs her to abandon her marriage, and he comes to the belief that she must be mesmerized by her vampire husband when she refuses. An attempted hold-up of the Darcy carriage on the way to Longbourn has disastrous consequences, and more tragedy strikes after they get to Longbourn. Then the dwarf dhampir (from the previous book) shows up again with a demand that Darcy at first refuses, but he eventually is forced to acquiesce.

The second half of the book moves to New Orleans, where Darcy and Elizabeth go in search of Wickham. They are hampered by the distrust the locals have for the British. Fitzwilliam and Lady Calmut arrive with additional information and assistance, although Fitzwilliam’s motives are to help Elizabeth rather than Darcy, with whom he is still furious. When Darcy and Fitzwilliam find him, Wickham (a.k.a. Warik now) gives an apparently sincere explanation for why he abandoned Lydia and faked his “death,” but can he be trusted? Elizabeth certainly doesn’t think so and will not allow him near her. Wickham introduces Darcy to the leader of the thriving vampire community in the area, who gives Darcy lessons to expand his powers.

Several complications arise from various sources. Darcy feels threatened by Fitzwilliam’s relationship with Elizabeth. She suffers estrangement from part of her family. Worst of all, the New Orleans vampires make an impossible demand of Darcy, but he can’t leave and return to England without having fulfilled the dwarf’s ultimatum, leaving him with an impossible dilemma.

The loving relationship between Darcy and Elizabeth established in the first book continues here, although there are periods of time when they’re at odds with each other and not sharing the marriage bed. Several intimate scenes, though very well-written and generally integral to the story, are more explicit than some readers may be comfortable with. The couple is given a lot to handle, as hinted at above. There’s plenty of angst, and it’s not all due to external forces; they both are battling internal struggles, as well. Darcy already suffers from self-loathing over his condition and can’t even bear to hear the word “vampire,” plus he feels tremendous guilt for bringing his wife into his abnormal life. Elizabeth thought she understood him when she married him, but when she sees aspects of his condition that frighten her, it makes her believe that she must be evil herself to find such a monstrous creature so irresistible.

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. It was hard to put down once I started reading. While the ending does not exactly leave a cliffhanger, the door is left wide open for a third book.

4.0 out of 5 stars True love can overcome even the most inconceivable roadblocks 16 August 2016

Lisa Hatfield - I agree with Debbie B's assessment of this novel!! Elizabeth discovers both the pleasant and frightening aspects of being married to a vampire. I loved Pulse and Prejudice and found this sequel to be equally excellent!!! Lizzy loves Darcy's biting foreplay, but it quickly puts Lizzy's life in peril. Col. Fitzwilliam is called upon to save Lizzy's life. The Col. rails at Darcy for nearly killing Lizzy. He begs Lizzy to leave Darcy. This causes a serious breach in Darcy and the Col's relationship. On the way to Longbourn in anticipation of Lydia giving birth to Wickham's babe, Lizzy and Darcy are attacked by highwaymen. During the attack, Lizzy sees Darcy's dark vampire side - he was forced to turn feral to save Lizzy's life. The Bennet's receive word that Wickham was killed in America (but they are unaware of his vampire status). Lydia gives birth to a son, but doesn't survive. The Bennet's adopt her son.

The damphir from the first book coerces Darcy into going to New Orleans and kill Wickham. He threatens to kill Ann (who decided to be turned as she lay dying), if Darcy refuses. The Darcys head to New Orleans in search of Wickham. The Col. and Lady Calmut arrive to assist the Darcys. Darcy is extremely jealous of the he knows that the Col. is in love with Lizzy - and this causes the cousins to remain estranged. Without giving away key plot points, Wickham is evil.

The damphir informs Mr. Bennet that Darcy is a vampire. He travels to New Orleans to try and "save" Lizzy. There is a lot of emotional upheaval throughout this book....and Lizzy and Darcy truly have to struggle and fight to achieve their HEA. This is an excellent book!!!!
4.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as the first one. 15 September 2016

This is the second book in the Confession of Mr. Darcy, Vampire series.It follows the life of Elizabeth's and Darcy's life after they get married and have to go to New Orleans to find and get rid of Wickham. Which actually that turns out to be a waste of time as the Dhampir who is blackmailing Darcy is killed towards the end of the book. Darcy neglects his wife throughout most of the book but is still very possessive towards her. Of course Richard does do a good job of rising his ire.

To me though this book does feel rushed but I understand why as the author was sick for a long time. I really didn't understand Darcy's decision to cut his children out of Elizabeth and then try to save her. You would think he would have tried to save Elizabeth which would in turn would have saved his children. In all though this book is enjoyable but I liked the first one better.
