Summary

It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single vampire must be in want of a wife. Someone biddable, her memories easily expunged to allow for strange, inexplicable deeds and baffling circumstances. A tractable creature of average intelligence, willing to tend to the business of producing heirs and keep out of all else. A girl easily molded, incurious, indifferent, and demanding nothing beyond access to his fortune. 

Fitzwilliam Darcy knows exactly who he needs. He can fix on the hour, the spot, the look, and the words which laid the foundation for an obsession he rejected. But 10 years later, at an assembly in an obscure village in Hertfordshire, he finds himself in the middle once more. His needs are unalterable. But can he resist the one woman he truly wants?

If you like twilight, you’ll love this

This story takes the original premise of P&P & throws it out the window. If you’re a purist, you won’t like this at all.

I must confess I wasn’t sure for the first few chapters as Darcy is just so different to how JA drew him but then it transpires that actually he isn’t so different at all. Equally Elizabeth is different too but again as the story progresses she isn’t that different either.

In the end this book was a fabulous read & it surprised me greatly. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Intriguing and enjoyable

Excellent story, I was slightly annoyed with the character of Elizabeth in the beginning, but I am glad I kept going. The characters do show more depth, and develop well. Well worth it! If you love pride and prejudice and a little bit of vampire lore. Harry Frost is excellent, his ability to convey emotion and to portray different character voices consistently is one of the best.

👏👏👏👏👏

Quite a departure from canon but quite enjoyable as well.

The narration by Harry Frost as always was amazing.
