    Suspenseful & Evocative

    Rourke, Lord Avenage, is the immortal Ravenmaster of England and, for centuries, he's been attracted to the bewitching immortal warrior Selene, daughter of Cleopatra. In the last installment of Kim Lenox's Shadow Guard series, Selene, who is one of the guards, sacrificed herself to save the people of London, risking a descent into madness.

    Now she's under surveillance. She's accused of murdering a helpless prostitute and one of Rourke's ravens, and Rouke is her keeper. From the haunting opening night travels to Queen Victoria's garden party (where we meet the Grande Dame herself), to the gothic castle that the couple retreats to, the connection between them builds.

    Selene is an assertive and dangerous seductress and a truly unique heroine. She's an eccentric creature who keeps deadly snakes as pets and devours curls of paper from novels. But for the first time in her existence, she's vulnerable. Rourke knows he shouldn't take advantage of the situation, but when a rival for Selene's attention arrives, Rourke can't help being jealous or resist the urge to stake his claim on her. Unfortunately, a dark past makes it almost impossible for him to give himself over to love. And the danger from the other world is drawing nearer. A dark nemesis is on the rise.

    With characteristic suspenseful and evocative writing, Kim Lenox brings us another fascinating tale that's both romantic and chilling. This terrific historical paranormal is one you won't want to miss!

    enjoyable romantic fantasy

    Shadow Guards' Ravenmaster Lord Avenage attends the Queen's tea party to obtain royal permission to remove sleeping Shadow Guard Countess Selene from the tower. Rourke's explanation to Her Highness is that his unit lacks the manpower to guard Selene, the only female member, and contend with Tantalus. Knowing she was put to sleep purposely so she would lose her sanity, Rourke conceals his agenda from the Queen as he has been dreaming of the woman, who sacrificed so much for London.

    The queen and her council agree to have Rourke personally guard Selene, daughter of Cleopatra and a Shadow Guard while Lady Black plans to awaken her and use a vaccine that should control the evil lurking inside her "patient". The plan goes astray when Selene awakens holding a bloody knife while a corpse lies nearby. As she panics that the evil has taken over her, Rourke calms her down and escorts her to the council where she will be interrogated to determine her mental state and whether Lord Avenage can control her.

    The latest Shadows Guards' thriller (see Night Falls Darkly and So Still the Night) is an enjoyable romantic fantasy as a doubting Rourke, in spite of eight centuries as an immortal, is unsure he does the right thing when it comes to the woman haunting his dreams. Fast-paced throughout readers will enjoy the tale of the two Guards as the hero wonders who is the one threatened by madness and the heroine sees his look at her as hesitation re evil killer or eternal love. The Lenox mythology burns brighter though it remains Darker than Night.
