About Dearest Bloodiest Elizabeth:
Set me as a seal upon thine heart, as a seal upon thine arm:for love is strong as death; jealousy is cruel as the grave. Song of Solomon 8:6
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?
"What happens after the happily ever after is explored well here, as is the character growth for the couple, paired with an intense vampire hunt through the dark streets of New Orleans. The author painted details of the place, the society, the social norms, and characters of the times. A passionate, soul-searching, and dangerous journey of the heart awaits them."
Sophia Rose, Delighted Reader Book Reviews
"Elizabeth and Darcy's life after the wedding is anything but dull: passion, love and sex but also jealousy, love triangle, arguments and blood, a lot of blood. A vampire Darcy with the love of his cursed life gets to know the green monster of jealousy and the result can be very steamy. Colette Saucier knows how to solve a fight with your hubby!" Ana Darcy, My Vices and Weaknesses (Read full review)
"Dark, bloody, and savage all, as vampires wreak havoc or as, at times, Darcy expresses his desires and yearnings towards Elizabeth or even as he acts out to protect her. The end is one of deep drama--one which will stay with me in dreams and thoughts as it causes such angst for our couple." Sheila Majczan
"After taking the plunge into this dark and haunting world, I am bloody thrilled to say that I just loved this sequel! The story examines the beauties and frailties of Darcy and Elizabeth’s love and devotion to each other while folding it into a world filled with gothic danger. It is action-packed and left me turning pages rather quickly, while at the same time being filled with well-developed characters whose inner turmoils make the reader empathize with each of their own plights."
C.A. Pepe, Just Jane 1813 (Read full review)
"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. There’s plenty of angst, and it’s not all due to external forces; they both are battling internal struggles, as well. There is no predicting which direction the story is going to veer, and it delivers numerous surprises. It was hard to put down once I started reading." Debbie Brown, BrownSound Music
"I have been trying to find the words to describe how I felt, reading the second book in this series by Ms. Saucier. All I can think to write is, absolutely brilliant! She out did herself with this second story! To keep Darcy and Elizabeth so true to form and adapt it to the Vampire theme, was unreal. Simply brilliant writing." Claudine Dimuzio
