Where did you come up with the names in the story?
The names of the original characters all come from vampire stories and lore. Many of them such as the Comtesse Mina, Elizabeth’s maid Lucy and Darcy’s butler Seward come from Dracula by Bram Stoker. Darcy’s valet Rivens is taken from the novella The Vampyre by John William Polidori and his original vision of a gentleman vampire, which he based on Lord Byron (who has a cameo in Pulse and Prejudice). The surname of the Comtesse is from the author of Treatise on Vampires & Revenants, Dom Antoine Augustin Calmet
In Dearest Bloodiest Elizabeth, many of the names I have taken from actual people who lived in the French Quarter at that time. Yes, I actually looked up assessment records. Many historical figures are incorporated in the story, such as Mayor Girod and Col. Mullins, and other property owners and military officers involved in the battle of New Orleans.

If you had to do it all over again, would you change anything in your latest book?
If I could do it again, I think I would break up the chapters of Dearest Bloodiest Elizabeth at the end differently. I attempted to have a fast-paced ending to bring about that sense of urgency I wanted to convey, but having just recently reread it, I think that the chapters could have been separated in such a way to convey the angst more effectively. 

Did you learn anything during the writing of your recent book?
I learned so much while researching Dearest Bloodiest Elizabeth about Creole society in New Orleans and the relationship among the various races and social strata. One of the reasons it took me so long to write was because I found it all incredibly fascinating and wanted to learn more and more. I hope readers like their paranormal romance with a large helping of history because they are definitely going to learn about what the French Quarter was like immediately after the Battle of New Orleans.


The Confession of Mr. Darcy, Vampire
Books I and II
by Colette L. Saucier
Genre: Paranormal Regency Romance 


FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER: The definitive vampire adaptation of Pride and Prejudice and its sultry sequel in one volume!

Books 1 and 2 of the award-winning, international bestselling Confession of Mr. Darcy, Vampire, re-released in this special edition only on eBook for a limited time at an incredible price.



BOOK I: Pulse and Prejudice

Elle Magazine selection "A Most Inventive Adaptation" (April, 2016)
Austenprose "Readers' Choice, Top 5 Books of the Year" (2012)
1st Place Winner in Category, 2013 Chatelaine Awards Romantic Fiction
Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy - elegant, dark, brooding...vampire. The Master of Pemberley tells his haunting tale of unquenchable desire and forbidden love.

"I cannot express enough how skeptical I was upon starting this book. Pride & Prejudice with a touch of vampires was enough to send me into fits of eye rolls. But, within only the first chapter, I found myself strangely drawn to the story. The vampire Darcy weaves his spell quickly." - Austenprose

Book II: Dearest Bloodiest Elizabeth
In this lurid, lusty sequel to Pulse and Prejudice, death shadows the newlywed Darcys from Pemberley to the parlors of Regency London to the courtyards of Antebellum New Orleans. As Elizabeth discovers the trials and travails of marriage to a vampire, can Darcy ever believe that she loves him as he is? Or will his jealousy tear them apart?

This is the sequel to Pulse and Prejudice; however, as it is not an Austen adaptation, the reader will find it darker, bloodier, and more provocative than Book 1.

"After taking the plunge into this dark and haunting world, I am bloody thrilled to say that I just loved this sequel! The story examines the beauties and frailties of Darcy and Elizabeth's love and devotion to each other while folding it into a world filled with gothic danger. It is action-packed and left me turning pages rather quickly, while at the same time being filled with well-developed characters whose inner turmoils make the reader empathize with each of their own plights."
C.A. Pepe, Just Jane 1813
