About the Book

'A MESMERIZING MARRIAGE BETWEEN REGENCY ROMANCE AND URBAN FANTASY ... I DEVOURED THIS SERIES'

-- Sabaa Tahir, author of the bestselling An Ember in the Ashes series

London, April 1812.

Lady Helen Wrexhall is about to make her debut at the court of Queen Charlotte and officially step into Regency society and the business of marriage. But Helen is about to discover that beyond the glittering ballrooms of Mayfair is a shadowy world of strange powers, missing housemaids and demonic conspiracies.

Standing between those two worlds is Lord Carlston, a man of ruined reputation and curt manners. He believes Helen has a destiny beyond the ballroom; a sacred and secret duty. Helen is not so sure, especially when she realises that nothing around her is quite as it seems, including the mysterious Lord Carlston.

Set against a backdrop of whispered secrets in St James's Palace, soirees with Lord Byron and morning calls from Beau Brummell, Lady Helen and the Dark Days Club is a delightfully dangerous adventure of self-discovery and the dark choices that must be made ... whatever the cost.

A tantalising trilogy set in Regency London from the award-winning author of Eon and Eona.
