Overview

Vampire Darcy’s Desire presents Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice as a heart-pounding vampire romance filled with passion and danger.
Tormented by a 200-year-old curse and his fate as a half-human/half-vampire dhampir, Mr. Darcy vows to live forever alone rather than inflict the horrors of life as a vampire on an innocent wife. But when he comes to Netherfield Park, he meets the captivating Elizabeth Bennet.

As a man, Darcy yearns for Elizabeth, but as a vampire, he is also driven to possess her. Uncontrollably drawn to each other, they are forced to confront a “pride and prejudice” never before imagined—while wrestling with the seductive power of forbidden love. Meanwhile, dark forces are at work all around them. Most ominous is the threat from George Wickham, the purveyor of the curse, a demon who vows to destroy each generation of Darcys.

Written in authentic Austen style and faithful to its Regency-era setting, Vampire Darcy’s Desire retells the greatest love story of all time in a hauntingly imaginative fashion.

    Can not say enough about Regina Jeffers and Vampire Darcy's Desire

    Received this book for Christmas and could not put the book down! Love the how the characters unfold him Regina'a books. I have read many books by this author and have loved ever one of them.

    Vampire Darcy's Desire is an easy read. It is suspenseful, romantic, touching, and down right great. For anyone that loves vampire novels and anyone that loves Darcy and Elizabeth, you get the best of both worlds. I would highly recommend this book to anyone.

    I have also read Darcy's Passion and I am in the process of Darcy's Temptation and both are also extraordinary.

    Satisfying

    I have always wanted Mr. Darcy to be a vampire because it would just lend a sensuality that is missing from the original Jane Austen. I love how the author essentially kept the classic Austen compnents intact however i would have liked it better if she had played upthe vampire aspect a little more. It could be a little better but otherwise a very satisfying rendition.

    Disappointing

    We're reading Pride and Prejudice in one of my English classes, and I like it, so I decided to check out some adaptations that seem interesting. I came across this. THIS. IS. NOT. PRIDE AND PREJUDICE. They're similar, yes, in that they're both romance novels, but in terms of plot, Vampire Darcy's Desire comes nowhere NEAR close to the original. Okay, so the Georgiana/Wickham prologue in VDD is somewhat similar to Darcy's relating of the P&P version. And yes, in both books, Darcy meets Elizabeth at a local assembly and snubs her. And it is also true that George Wickham seduces Lydia into leaving with him. But aside from those 3 points, there's absolutely no similarity. Well, that and the fact that some of the names are the same. But there really isn't anything else even closely resembling the original. The truth is, almost nothing of what makes P&P "P&P" appears in VDD. The whole POINT of P&P is that there are deep personal conflicts between Elizabeth and Darcy, and they both have to work to change to overcome them. There is NOTHING like that in VDD. In fact, as my Playwriting teacher told us last week, the protagonist is not necessarily the person who is portrayed as "best" (or kindest or nicest) , but the person who changes the most, and quite honestly, the person who changes the most throughout VDD is George Wickham. Admittedly, he starts the book as an undead but deadly nuisance, and ends up being a corpse at the end, but he changes. Elizabeth and Darcy, although they are portrayed as the protagonists, really do not change at all during the course of the book. Also, there really aren't any major conflicts, or even a single major conflict. The only thing I can see that resembles a conflict is when Elizabeth leaves Darcy because of what happened to Lydia, and even that blows over in an incredibly short amount of time. A good conflict requires lots of struggles and even more pages to be resolved. The major conflict should take a somewhat long time to set itself up, and should not just be resolved in a day or two. This "conflict" appears essentially out of nowhere, and is gone within a week. In fact, all the action in the book is finished less than 2 weeks after the "conflict" arises. Which is just pathetic. The entire rest of the book is just a regular romance novel. I honestly expected better.

    Not worth the money ....

    I got this book at my local B&N thinking it would be a great read. Because I love Pride and Prejudics and VAMPIRES. But I'm so disappointed I couldn't get through the first 20 pages, and just skimmed the rest of the book.It's definately NOT a book that I would recommend to anyone to read. In fact if I could I would take it back but I can't so I'm just going to donate to charity. There were things added to this story that didn't need to be. It's badly written the Pride & Prejudice (original) is the best. It's definately a classic. This would have been a good read and bring 2 of my favorite things together (vampires & romance) BUT it was poorly executed SAVE YOUR MONEY.....

    Vampire Darcy's Desire..... Loved it!!

    This novel is a keeper in my Library! Truly love the comaraderie between Darcy & Elizabeth and also Mr. Darcy trying to keep the evil George Wickham at bay! IT was a fun read and would totally recommend it! I liked this novel much more than Amanda Grange's novel dealing with vampires & Mr. Darcy.

    The Good and the Okay

    When I first got this book I was expecting it to be more along the lines of "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies," which it wasn't and slightly disappointed me. However, after I got over the fact hat it wasn't going to be like the original Pride and Prejudice, I really enjoyed. Jeffers tells a great story that would be a wonderful stand alone piece in its own right. Its a fun read, but its not something I'll probably want to read multiple times.

    I didn't think it was possible to love Darcy even more.

    I recommend this book to all lovers of romance and fantasy. Ms. Jeffers has done a wonderful job keeping the love story of Darcy and Miss Elizabeth alive along with adding the necessary edge for a vampire thriller. This isn't a Twilight rip off. Mr. Darcy doesn't sparkle and doesn't need to. He is all man and does what it takes to keep his family in tact. This is one of those books you keep at the bedside to re-read after a crappy day has you wondering if there are any real men left in the world.

    Love it!

    I read the other two books about Mr. and Mrs. Darcy by this author and truly enjoyed them so, I decided I had to read this one too. After renting it from the library and renewing it as many times as I could in one checkout I knew I had to purchase it. As an Austen and vampire fan there are no words to describe how this book captured me between its pages.

    Loved this book

    Regina Jeffers is amazing and I could not put this book down. So exciting and she leaves you craving for more. I loved that she told this story from the point of view of Darcy and Elizabeth - you get to read how each feels and the romance is absolutely beautiful. You won't be disappointed.
