manda Grange's novel begins where
Pride and Prejudice
ends. Elizabeth Bennett and Darcy marry and set out on their honeymoon. Darcy surprises Elizabeth by changing their original plan to visit the Lake District. Fortunately, Elizabeth is thrilled to be going to Europe instead.
lizabeth doesn't realize that they are in Europe to get approval of their marriage from the oldest known vampyre. Not knowing that Darcy is a vampyre, she worries that their marriage has not been consummated. Does he regret their union?
eaders can't help but wonder why Darcy, a vampyre, would marry Elizabeth if he truly loves her. He feels guilty, but he loves her too much to let her go and too much to change her in any way. As they travel through Europe, meeting Darcy's friends, there is always an undercurrent of danger, and more than once they are forced to flee and move on to another country.
usten might be surprised that Elizabeth and Darcy's life after marriage takes this turn. Half farce and half suspense, Grange's story is great fun to read. For me the ending is the weakest part, but other readers might think it couldn't have finished in any other way.
