Pulse and Prejudice Audiobook on Cinco de Mayo Sunday - PLUS Margaritas!

Welcome to Sneak Peek Sunday for Cinco de Mayo! I will not be celebrating this year because I still have not recovered from last year's festivities. Am I the only one who thinks tequila makes people crazy?

BUT I so make the BEST margarita anyone who has ever had it says they've ever had. To commemorate today, I am sharing my recipe on my Facebook page, so go check it out. While you're there, be sure to click "Like" so you won't miss out on other recipes, along with complaints about my soul-sucking day job and my struggle to lose weight. Oh, and I also make balloon animals.

But I digress. The audiobook for Pulse and Prejudice - the adaptation of the Jane Austen Classic, which tells the story of Mr. Darcy, vampire - is now available! So for this week's Sneak Peek Sunday, I give you the option of reading this 2-minute scene or sit back, relax with your margarita, and listen to the amazing narration by Tim Campbell, who is not only an actor but also an opera singer! I think you will hear that quality in his voice, too.

Of course, it is still available in print and all eBook formats, but right now, you can get the audiobook from Amazon for FREE through their Special Offer with a free trial Audible new membership! FREE!

This scene is from when Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth are forced to spend several under the same roof after her sister suddenly takes ill at Netherfield....

Darcy turned just as the door opened and Elizabeth appeared. They cried out in surprise simultaneously.

“Mr. Darcy!”

“Eliz-a-Miss Bennet!”

She was dressed in her night-rail and wrapper; and, though more modest than even her day dresses, the sight set his nerves on edge. Her hair hung down as he had imagined. She held one hand to her heart as the other gripped a candlestick.

“Mr. Darcy, you frightened me! What do you mean by all this skulking about in the dark? How can you even see where you are going?”

He steadied himself before speaking. “I seem to have mislaid my book. I was unable to sleep and thought to read.”

“The Lord Nelson? I believe I saw it in the library on the sideboard.”

He nodded. “That would be a good place for it.”

She smiled. “Indeed. Although if you are looking for the second volume, you may have to wrest it away from Miss Bingley,” she said with a glint in her eye. He smiled at that; but then they both became sensible to the impropriety of their current circumstance and their close proximity. “I was on my way to check on Jane.”

He knew he should step aside, but he did not. He knew he should look away, but he did not. He held her eyes in his stare, his resistance faltering. Another moment and he might have moved towards her, reached his hand to hold the nape of her neck, pierced her flesh with his aching teeth, pressed his mouth upon her lips; but the light from her candle illuminated his face, and he saw his wan reflection in her eyes. As with all those with his curse, he could not bear the sight of his own reflection, a vision of death itself. Her candle flickered out in an instant, and she gasped and broke her gaze.

“There...must be a draught,” she said. They were in darkness, save the moonlight from the window behind her, as soft as her voice. Something made her step back from him; then she turned away. “Let me find the tinderbox.” When she looked back, he was gone.
