Kiss Me Once, Kiss Me Twice... Excerpt from The Proud and the Prejudice for My Sexy Saturday

Welcome to My Sexy Saturday! After the last two weeks revisiting Pulse and Prejudice with excerpts from the story of Mr. Darcy, vampire , this week's theme allows me to present another sample from my modern twist on Pride and Prejudice - The Proud and the Prejudiced .  "Remember the song that has the lyric ‘Kiss me once and kiss me twice and kiss me once again, it’s been a long, long time”?

I must confess, I have been a huge fan of hers since I first knew of such a thing as Pride and Prejudice variations; and she warmly welcomed me into the family.

Fortunately, for my sanity (and I use the term loosely), she and four other fellow Austen Variations Authors have provided us with a delicious treat: The Darcy Brothers !
