Strewn about the prose of Pulse and Prejudice - the paranormal adaptation Jane Austen's classic, which retells the story from Mr. Darcy's point of view as a vampire - you will find references to film, music, and literature I have enjoyed over the years, all of which are listed on the Acknowledgements page.  Here are FOUR CLUES for you!

1.  Near the middle of Volume II, Chapter 9 of Pulse and Prejudice, whilst Mr. Darcy is in London, the Comtesse de Calmet fusses at him about spreading gossip regarding the personal affairs of Lord Byron. There you will find an allusion to Pulp Fiction.

2.  In Volume III, Chapter 5, Mr. Darcy has returned to London after reuniting Bingley with Jane. As he reads a letter from Bingley announcing their engagement, what should go through his mind but words quite similar to the lyrics from my favourite song by Madonna, "Gone" from the Music album.

3.  Towards the end of Volume III, Chapter 1, at Pemberley as Georgiana tells Elizabeth it's her birthday, Miss Caroline Bingley is being catty as usual. In Darcy's reaction, you will find a nod to Camelot.

4.  This one is rather tricky, I admit, unless you happen to watch the British version of Being Human. Earlier in Volume II, Chapter 9, as his valet Rivens assists Mr. Darcy after he returns to his London mansion, um, intoxicated because of his broken heart, Darcy laments:
"She has nothing but contempt for me, primarily because of what I did to her sister—and how wrong I was there as well! Believing Miss Bennet to be indifferent to Bingley, when in truth her sister is indifferent to me! Is this what this curse has wrought? Can I not discriminate human feelings because I am no longer human?"  
In his valet's reply, you will find the reference from Being Human.  (Also, as a bonus hint, earlier in that same paragraph of Darcy's distress is a line from my favourite Pink Floyd song!)
I will have one final clue next week on Halloween on my post on Austen Authors, for those of you who haven't gotten your entries in by then - you'll still have time since you have until midnight! So join me there where I will also have a sneak peek at the sequel to Pulse and Prejudice currently in progress, entitled Dearest Bloodiest Elizabeth.

Pulse and Prejudice – A tale of love, blood, and desire; the definitive vampire adaptation of the Jane Austen classic.

This compelling paranormal adaptation of Pride and Prejudice tells the story of Mr. Darcy, vampire, as he endeavours to overcome both his love and his bloodlust for Miss Elizabeth Bennet.
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.

Available Now in Print, eBook, and audiobook!
