Historical Fantasy / Steampunk
Released: April 2010
Alexia is quite put out to wake up one evening and find her husband, Lord Maccon, has disappeared on pack business without informing her. She's even more upset to find a regiment of troops camping on her front lawn, with no idea how they got there.
On top of that, the Queen of England is upset, and taking it out on Alexia. Deciding to take matters into her own hands, Alexia heads for Scotland, where her husband happens to be, to try and determine the cause of the mess.
For there's a force in England, one that can revert vampires and shifters alike back to their human state, and somebody is trying to use it for their own gain.
Not if Alexia has anything to do with it.
This is the second book in the series, which I devoured right after putting down book 1. This book was even better than the first one, with werewolves, vampires, and Alexia's trusty parasol. In this one she follows a strange occurance from England to Scotland, determined to get to the heart of the matter. Since her husband has also went off to Scotland, she can track him down while she's there. The only problem I had was the ending, but that's more because the third book isn't out yet, and the author leaves me with my mouth open, saying, "What happened?!" Luckily, the third book comes out in a month, so I don't have that long to wait. Unfortunately, the fourth book won't be released until next year, so I'll have to grit my teeth and bear it. :)
