The Dark Days Pact (Lady Helen Series #2)
Viking / January 31, 2017 / $18.99 print, $10.99 digital
If you thought you loved the Lady Helen novels after their premiere with The Dark Days Club last year, brace yourselves friends. Because love is about to become obsession.
The Dark Days Pact is everything that the increasing tension in The Dark Days Club promised us the sequel would be: an intense, terrifying, thrilling rush of romance and battle, blood and beating hearts, enemies and lovers. Darker, faster, at times absolutely hair-raising, this book is the critical moment at the height of a trilogy when the risks have never been greater and the rewards seem fewer and farther between.
In The Dark Days Pact we return to heroine and reluctant reclaimer Helen, who is living in seclusion in Brighton with Lady Margaret and Mr. Hammond after being discarded by her uncle at the end of the first book. (Following that amazing kiss on the floor of her bedroom with Carlston where she saved his life after the deceiver attack that killed the horrible Benchley.) Her potential betrothal to the Duke of Selburn (Looooove him) has imploded following the scandal, she is estranged from her family, surrounded by a frightening new reality—but, well, at least Brighton is quieter than London! Unfortunately, while life in Brighton may move at a more sedate pace, Helen’s life has not exactly quieted down.
