Pulse & Prejudice Pop Culture Challenge: Second Clue

The Pulse and Prejudice Pop Culture Challenge is in full gear! I hope all of you are having fun searching for the hidden treasures throughout the narrative of the novel for your chance to win an iPad4 and CA$H Jackpot!

As promised, periodically during the contest period I will provide clues as to where you can find one of the pop culture allusions within the prose of Pulse and Prejudice, listed on the acknowledgments page. Last month I divulged the first clue, which was probably the most difficult: William Faulkner. That particular reference is something of an homage to my ex-husband, as he is a Faulkner scholar.  He is also a wine connoisseur; so in keeping with the "former spouse" theme, today I'll give you a hint as to the location for the reference to the film Sideways. You will find it in Volume 3, Chapter 6, just before Darcy and Elizabeth proceed up Oak Mount; and - to make it even easier for you - it is something Darcy says in response to a question posed by Elizabeth.

Happy Hunting!

The rules of the contest are simple: Find the most pop culture allusions within the text of Pulse and Prejudice, and you will win a Fourth Generation iPad with Retina Display! PLUS, if you find ALL 25 of them, you will win a CA$H BONUS from an ever-growing Jackpot! There are even prizes for runners-up!

There is no purchase necessary to enter or win, so feel free to borrow a copy from a friend or the library - although I'm sure you will want your own ;).  Just don't use a pirated copy, or you will be disqualified.

About Pulse and Prejudice

When the haughty and wealthy Fitzwilliam Darcy arrives in the rural county of Hertfordshire, he finds he cannot control his attraction to Elizabeth Bennet – a horrifying thought because, as she is too far below his social standing to ignite his heart, he fears she must appeal to the dark impulses he struggles to suppress.

Set against the vivid backdrop of historical Regency England, Pulse and Prejudice follows the cursed vampire Darcy as he strives to overcome both his love and his bloodlust for Miss Elizabeth Bennet. This compelling adaptation of Pride and Prejudice remains faithful to the original plot and style of the Jane Austen classic but tells Darcy’s story as he descends into the seedier side of London and introduces Elizabeth to a world of passion and the paranormal she never knew existed.

“What would Jane Austen have thought? I think she would have loved this book. She might even have written it herself had she lived in a less constrained age.” Books Are Cool

"Within only the first chapter, I found myself strangely drawn to the story. The vampire Darcy weaves his spell quickly." Austenprose

“Darcy’s demise and subsequent ‘rebirth’ are written to perfection. It has renewed my faith in the sub-genre.” Reflections of a Book Addict
