Marc Sanderson’s love of stories grew up alongside his love of science and history. Unable to decide which was most fascinating, he studied science, literature, history, education and law, all of which pop up in his writing. Currently a full-time writer of romance and fantasy, he loves finding ways to infuse his passion for learning and the natural world into his stories. When he’s not reading or writing, he can be found studying the ecology of the local streams, restoring the eelgrass beds of the local estuary, hiking up mountains, watching documentaries or indulging in romantic comedies. Lately he’s taken up cooking as a hobby and is trying diligently not to poison his wife.
What is an “eco-romance”? These are contemporary romances with ecological themes running through them. I hope the stories will help raise awareness of the vital part our environment plays in all our lives and convey the urgent need to reform environmental policy on the federal, state and local levels.

Colette L. Saucier

Paranormal Regency Romance

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.”

Eva Pohler author of The Gatekeeper’s Sons an Interview

Tuesday, February 11th, 2014

Welcome, Eva Pohler to my blog.

Eva, what is your typical day like?

I help my three teens get to school, then get myself ready and go teach writing and literature at The University of Texas at San Antonio on Mondays, Wednesday, and Fridays. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, I stay in my PJ’s as long as possible and write. I try to avoid cooking and cleaning as much as possible, but I end up having to do it nearly every day. I enjoy catching up with friends and readers on Facebook and Goodreads, and then I write some more. Some evenings, I watch Modern Family, The Big Bang Theory, and Once Upon a Time with my family.

Wow that is a lot. Do you write with music or not?

I don’t play any music, but one of my sons is usually on his piano or guitar while I’m writing. It’s nice, actually. (more…)
