“Moonglow” by, Kristen Callihan
Daisy Ellis is finally free of her abusive marriage and she just wants to enjoy being a widow; but when a night out turns into a nightmare, Daisy’s life quickly spins out of control. After witnessing a grizzly attack and narrowly escaping death Daisy is rescued and taken to safety by Ian Ranulf, the Marquis of Northrup. Daisy and Ian are both hiding dangerous secrets and with a mysterous killer on the loose they have to decide weather or not to trust one another.
“Moonglow” is the second book in the “Darkest London” series. (The first book is called “Firelight”) In this series you will find immortals, magic, shifters, werewolves, and other supernatural characters. The setting for this series is early London and it has a steampunk feel to it that I enjoy. However, what really drew me into this story was the sexual tension between Daisy and Ian (steamy doesn’t begin to cover it). This couple had a great back and forth banter throughout the story and the tender moments were extremely satisfying.
I am a big fan of strong female characters. Daisy walks with confidence and isn’t afraid to kick some butt. I am also drawn to the strong damaged male character, but I appreciated that Ian was able to say that he was scared and that he needed Daisy (instead of just wallowing in a dark corner). I am also really excited to read more about some of the characters that were introduced in “Moonglow” (Winston and Talent). This series is great for anyone who loves historical or paranormal romance books. I eagerly await the next book in the series!
