Publisher Comments:

Once a heart is lost in shadow . . .

Life has been anything but kind to Mary Chase. But the Society for the Suppression of Supernaturals has given her purpose. Now she's been tasked with catching a vicious murderer dubbed the Bishop of Charing Cross. But someone is already on the case-and the last thing he relishes is a partner.

Only someone who lives in darkness can find it.

Jack Talent has been alone with his demons for many years.

He never expected to have the willful Mary Chase assist him on the Bishop case. Their age-old rivalry reaches new heights-even as their desire for one another reaches a fever pitch. Though he aches to bring her close, Jack's dark secrets are a chasm between them. With dangerous enemies closing in, Jack must find the strength to face the past . . . or risk losing Mary forever.

Review:

"In the fourth novel of her acclaimed Darkest London series (after Winterblaze), set in 1885, Callihan introduces Mary Chase, who was killed by a runway gin wagon and brought back to life by the Society for the Suppression of Supernaturals (SOS). Jack Talent is a tortured man, haunted by self-hatred and fiercely protective of those he loves — including Mary, who views him as a rival. When bodies begin turning up at Trafalgar Square, journalists dub the unknown killer the Bishop of Charing Cross, and Mary and Jack set out to hunt him down. Callihan's solid worldbuilding draws the reader into 1885 London from the first page (though her use of the 20th-century term 'ghosts in the machine' to describe the resurrected is disconcerting), and her lyrical writing will have readers racing to the thrilling finish."

About the Author

Kristen Callihan is a child of the eighties, which means she's worn neon skirts, black lace gloves, and combat boots (although never all at once) and can quote John Hughes movies with the best of them. A lifelong daydreamer, she finally realized that the characters in her head needed a proper home and thus hit the keyboard. She believes that falling in love is one of the headiest experiences a person can have, so naturally she writes romance. Her love of superheroes, action movies, and history led her to write historical paranormals. She lives in the Washington, D.C., area and, when not writing, looks after two children, one husband, and a dog - the fish can fend for themselves.
