|I don't really like this cover very well..Mr. Darcy looks creepy instead of HOT !|
This fresh, original paranormal Jane Austen sequel by bestselling author Mary Lydon Simonson explores Mr. Darcy as the leader of a secret world of werewolves threatened with extinction. Elizabeth comes to realize that she loves him in both his incarnations, and all his servants protect his secret. But then Elizabeth must confront a shocking danger to her beloved with every full moon, when Darcy is alone and exposed to those who hate wolves...
First thoughts when I finished the last sentence: "That was a fun, different twist on P&P with a werewolf thrown in for good measure!"
It goes without saying that I'm a sucker for Mr. Darcy...well, I found out that I also like him when he's a werewolf too!!! This story was just fun and I'm glad that the author didn't take the "werewolf" thing too far, otherwise it would've felt very cliche. I thought it was just right and added that little twist to the story that made it enjoyable.
"You are shivering. I am sorry it is not warmer in here."
Lizzy stood up and put her arms around her husband's neck and pulled his face to hers. "Why don't you warm me up the same way you did last night?"
(from Mr. Darcy's Bite page 267 in the ARC; finished version may be different)
Recommend? Sure...especially to those that adore Darcy and Lizzy's story as much as I do. It's always fun to shake up Austen's world and to read about this couple in different settings and situations!!
