Series: Darkest London #3
The Darkest London series is one of the best paranormal romance series. Winterblaze was the best book in the series so far (chronologically speaking). The main character was Poppy Lane. She was bad ass and independent. Over the years she had lied to her husband and her family about what she really did. Her lies were exposed to her husband, Winston, in the last book (Moonlglow) when he discovered the paranormal world.
At the start of the story Poppy and Winston were separated. He was not quick to forgive her for all of her lies. Poppy heard that he was in danger. She rushed off to protect him. They were forced to work to together because the enemy was after both of them. It was nice for a change to have the romance revolve around a married couple. It isn’t a concept that is commonly seen in PNR.
There was more to the story than romance. Since Poppy worked for the Society for the Suppression of Supernaturals, much more was revealed about it than in the prior books. The enemy who was after Poppy and Winston had closer ties to both of them than they ever knew. The family history of Poppy and her sisters (who were the main characters in the first two books) was finally unraveled.
