Hump Day Hook #10

Welcome to the Hump Day Hook Hop for January 9th, 2013!

With this blog hop, each author posts one paragraph from a WIP or finished book for all to see. Then, it would be really cool if you could visit all the writers participating and comment on their paragraph!

This paragraph is from my current work in progress, Dearest Bloodiest Elizabeth, the sequel to Pulse and Prejudice, my paranormal adaptation of Jane Austen's classic love story.  It's just a taste of how marriage to Elizabeth has affected the vampire Darcy....

    Darcy felt he had undergone a metamorphosis of sorts, a second transformation to reverse the pain and shame of the first.  After years of self-loathing, disgust for the beast he had become, the indignity of even pronouncing the word, he had found someone who not only accepted his dark nature but embraced it – welcomed it, reveled in it! – gaining from it a satisfaction to match his own. Naturally, no one could possibly have imagined the secret of their marriage bed; but anyone seeing him standing a bit taller, walking with a self-assurance - beyond mere pride - heretofore unknown, could not doubt that marriage agreed with him.
    Fitzwilliam Darcy, vampire, was happy.

Love to know what you think!

    1. The silly blogspot comment boxes don't like me. This is Jade Crystal, a real person, not a web address, lol.
