TABT…Firelight (Darkest London) by Kristen Callihan

Firelight Coverd

This was a REALLY fun read. Kind of a Beauty and the Beast setup, set in regency London, with a definite supernatural, woo-woo bent.  Miranda was great, and I loved how she grew as a character throughout the story.  Don’t want to spoil anything, but she really shines in the end. Archer was fabulous, the kind of tortured hero with a true heart of gold romance readers love to celebrate.  And together?  Together they were magical, in more ways than one.  Can’t wait to read the next book in the series!

I’d definitely recommend this book for paranormal romance fans looking for a different venue/time period than the norm, it’s worth it!

Snow’s almost melted…

20130226_091440Promised I’d post a snow pic of the house after last week’s snowstorm.  Got about 7 inches on Monday night/Tuesday, lost power in the wee hours of Tuesday morning and didn’t get it back until Thursday about noon.  Brrrrr!
