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.
With a series title like Darkest London, there’s a promise that, along with a deeply emotional romance, there will be supernatural derring-do, exquisite worldbuilding and layers upon layers of intrigue. In Shadowdance, Kristen Callihan most definitely delivers. Longtime fans of the series finally get to see the enigmatic Jack Talent take his turn as hero, and Mary Chase, bless her clockwork heart, is more than up for the job of heroine. When two people are absolutely perfect for each other, it makes for a romance like no other. The course of true love, especially the supernatural variety, never does run smooth, so while the happily ever after is guaranteed, the way Jack and Mary get there is full of surprises.
