Darkest London #2 Moonglow

Oh my! as marvelous as the previous one. Presenting Darkest London #2 Moonglow by Kristen Callihan.

Here is the summary of the book:

Once the seeds of desire are sown . . . Finally free of her suffocating marriage, widow Daisy Ellis Craigmore is ready to embrace the pleasures of life that have long been denied her. Yet her new-found freedom is short lived. A string of unexplained murders has brought danger to Daisy's door, forcing her to turn to the most unlikely of saviors . . . Their growing passion knows no bounds . . . Ian Ranulf, the Marquis of Northrup, has spent lifetimes hiding his primal nature from London society. But now a vicious killer threatens to expose his secrets. Ian must step out of the shadows and protect the beautiful, fearless Daisy, who awakens in him desires he thought long dead. As their quest to unmask the villain draws them closer together, Daisy has no choice but to reveal her own startling secret, and Ian must face the undeniable truth: Losing his heart to Daisy may be the only way to save his soul.

Moonglow, second book in the darkest London series and tells the story of Miranda's sister Daisy. Fresh out of mourning for her husband, Daisy is now ready to shed her black clothes and again take up the colors of society. What she doesn't foresee is that in the dark alleys of London roams a monster vicious to the teeth and deadly. As Daisy comes in its line of it remembers her scent....well only Lord Northrup is her only hope but she needs to start trusting him for that to happen.

Ember and Firelight spoke of Miranda's story with and before her husband Lord Archer and Moonglow tells us Daisy's entangled with Lord Northrup's and it totally does not disappoint. All the elements that were in the previous book, that made them amazing are all present here. All the darkness, the emotions, the dark and the dirty, the sarcasm, its all in here.

As I already mentioned, Moonglow changes its perspective to two new characters.....well old but still.....Daisy and Ian/Lord Northrup. So it was a little difficult follow the change of perspective and a new story arc but it was a wonderful and an exotic change. The story of Daisy and Ian held many parallels with Miranda & Ben. In that both the sisters are a stubborn and headstrong lot, Daisy is also very insecure and doesn't let anyone in easily, in Miranda's it was her Fire elemental but with Daisy it was the treatment she received at the hands of her dead husband. But she has the ability to love and love she does in leaps and bounds.

Ian/Northrup again like Daisy and Miranda, draws parallels with Benjamin Archer. Both are old souls, both are creatures of the paranormal world. They both have experienced extreme sadness and betrayal at the hands of their loved ones and just want to feel loved again. And just like Miranda & Archer, Daisy & Ian will take you in their tumultuous relationship when you are least expecting it and make you ride the waves of their tussling emotions. Oh now I want to know what Winterblaze has in store for us rather badly.

"From the pen of Ms. Callihan - oh the magic that happens when she mixes the dark and foggy London, Steampunk and the Paranormalia - out comes a tale of two stubborn souls who only want a little love in their loves - Moonglow is just as wondrous and sexy as Firelight was!"
