Overview

The only way to save her life is to resurrect the dead…

Uncanny Chronicles, Book 1

Julian Darke was only a newborn when he was abandoned on the doorstep of a gentleman doctor. Though raised with love, he is driven to discover his true origins.

Convinced Sir Thaddeus Ormond knows something, Julian shadows him one night—and is shocked to see a young woman thrown from Ormond’s carriage and accosted by a thug. Julian manages to save her life, but not her face and hands from horrific injuries.

Nellie Barchester doesn’t recognize the scarred, disfigured stranger in the mirror. Though the gifted doctor and engineer has done his best to repair the damage, scars ravage her body, and chill her soul with the realization that her own husband may have plotted her death.

Julian’s tenderness is a balm to her soul, and Nellie is drawn to the edge of passion by a man not repelled by her deformities. But as their pursuit of the truth draws them into London’s underbelly, they cross the path of a ruthless enemy who will stop at nothing to fulfill his schemes.

Warning: Can a brilliant but troubled doctor find happiness with a woman scarred both inside and out? A hint of the supernatural plus a night of passion spice up this Uncanny Chronicle.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
It is indeed the underbelly of London, where the greedy rich folk collide with the poor of the darkest streets and where Nellie is set upon by a murderer, only to be rescued by handsome doctor Julian Darke. Scarred for life and presumed dead, Nellie doesn’t let that stop her from learning the truth behind her vicious attack. Julian is linked to Nellie during their search for justice, and despite the amazing odds against them and a path fraught with difficulties, the two share a passion that is undeniable.

Verdict The limited cast of characters gives this short novel a sharp focus on the mysterious events occurring around Julian and Nellie, allowing the fast-paced, gothic-tinged story to take hold of the reader. A dash of steampunk with a taste of lust makes this an intriguing tale, perfect for historical romance readers. The romance is sexy but not overbearing or crude; a perfect weekend read for the thrill-seeker.—Marie Burton, Rockwall, TX

    I was given an ARC copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
    A beautiful story of love and honor torn apart by a deceitful Man of power, whose intent is to destroy what ever and whoever gets in His way. Julian a Man without a past searching desperately to find who He is while Nellie is a woman with no future. Their path cross sending down a path in search of answers that may not lie in this world.
    I enjoyed the story with its mystery that kept you guessing. The beginning dragged on until about the middle then that is when thing speeded up. Overall it was an intriguing with an element of paranormal spice.

    This book sucked me in from the very first few pages. The characters were easy to get to know a you're given perspectives from both, Nellie and Julian. They both brought their own issues to the table. I enjoyed watching them work through these issues both together and apart as the story progressed. Darke London by Coleen Kwan was provided to me by Bewitching Book Tours for review. The opinions are my own.
