Moonglow (Darkest London) [Mass Market Paperback]

I've finished "Moonglow" the 2nd book in her Darkest London series by Kristen Callihan.

Product Description

Once the seeds of desire are sown . . .

Finally free of her suffocating marriage, widow Daisy Ellis Craigmore is ready to embrace the pleasures of life that have long been denied her. Yet her new-found freedom is short lived. A string of unexplained murders has brought danger to Daisy's door, forcing her to turn to the most unlikely of saviors . . .
Their growing passion knows no bounds . . .

Ian Ranulf, the Marquis of Northrup, has spent lifetimes hiding his primal nature from London society. But now a vicious killer threatens to expose his secrets. Ian must step out of the shadows and protect the beautiful, fearless Daisy, who awakens in him desires he thought long dead. As their quest to unmask the villain draws them closer together, Daisy has no choice but to reveal her own startling secret, and Ian must face the undeniable truth: Losing his heart to Daisy may be the only way to save his soul.

About the Author

Kristen Callihan is a child of the eighties, which means she's worn neon skirts, black lace gloves, and combat boots (although never all at once) and can quote John Hughes movies with the best of them. A lifelong daydreamer, she finally realized that the characters in her head needed a proper home and thus hit the keyboard. She believes that falling in love is one of the headiest experiences a person can have, so naturally she writes romance. Her love of superheroes, action movies, and history led her to write historical paranormals. She lives in the Washington, D.C., area and, when not writing, looks after two children, one husband, and a dog-the fish can fend for themselves.

My Review:

One night when Daisy was leaving a party celebrating her freedom from her long dead husband she is attacked by a creature.  Ian Ranulf is nearby and hears her terrified screams and comes to her rescue.  He is terrified because he knows the creature is a werewolf and he knows what will happen to their kind if found out.  As you know, Ian is a werewolf himself and is exiled from his Ranulf clan.  He takes Daisy to his home to question her about the attack and the creature and asks her not to tell the public about what she saw.

They decide to team up and investigate the werewolf attacks and then bodies start showing up in horrible fashion.  They discover that the werewolf is attracted to Daisy perfume scent and is going after everyone that is wearing that scent.  Ian also runs into his younger brother Conall the Ranulf King who has a major grudge against him.

Ian is working through some tough issues with the lost of his father and the seclusion from his fellow clan members.  He regrets his actions regarding Miranda Daisy's younger sister and wants to prove to her that he has changed.

I really enjoyed the romance between Daisy the bold, smart, courageous but troubled women and the dark  tortured Ian because you can feel the tension between them and the trust and love they find.  Ian is always complimenting and flirting with Daisy and it was quite sizzling.
