Night Falls Darkly
A Novel of the Shadow GuardBook - 2008
From an exciting new voice comes the first in a chilling saga about a cunning immortal who has been called upon to reclaim a marked soul-and about the young beauty whose life he must save a second time.
Ever since an accident took away her memory, Miss Elena Whitney can't recall the secrets of her past. All she knows is that with her mysterious benefactor, Archer, Lord Black, returning to London at the behest of Queen Victoria, she should seize the chance to get some answers. But the dangerously handsome Lord Black is not exactly the man Elena imagined.
Archer, a member of the immortal Shadow Guard, has been summoned to London to eliminate an exceptionally evil threat- Jack the Ripper. With his prey brutally killing London's East End prostitutes, Archer must stop the Ripper before the murderer's soul slips beyond his grasp, and do so while protecting his beautiful young ward, Elena, whom he spared from death two years earlier. But with a wave of panic spreading across London, Archer fears that Elena is his weakness-a distraction he can't afford, especially since she's likely to become the Ripper's next target.
