New Giveaway - Mr Darcy, Vampyre - Amanda Grange

Mr Darcy a vampire??? I'm not sure how the concept sits with me, but following the recent vampire trend Amanda Grange has continued the classic tale of Pride and Prejudice in Mr Darcy, Vampyre and we're giving away a brand new softcover copy of the book. The book picks up exactly where Jane Austen left off, on the morning following Elizbeth and Darcy's marriage. From here on in.....things get pretty strange!!

  2. I'm not sure about this trend either... but possibly Jane Austen's Persuasion? Might explain where Captain Wentworth was for 8 years - learning to control his new unnatural appetites ;-)

  4. Hiya.

    I am following your blog and your twitter (leetid26).

    I think Northanger Abbey should be changed with vampires as you got the mysterious dark house in it already so it would be the prefect setting!

  5. Ha ha - silly me - I forgot to put a novel. What about Jane Eyre, where Mr Rochester's first wife is really a vampire?

  6. Vanity Fair...where Becky is a little bit like the Countess Bathory. Get it...she bathes in her victims blood to stay young = Vanity!
