Bath, 1812. As Lady Helen prepares for her grand wedding to the Duke of Selburn, she must juggle her new responsibilities with her duties as a demon-hunting Grand Reclaimer. Now a dyad with Lord Carlston, bonded in blood, the two prepare to confront their nemesis, the Grand Deceiver. Set against the glittering background of Regency society, Helen and Carlston's story hurtles to a shocking conclusion full of passion, betrayal, and heartbreak.


The Dark Days Deceit was a gripping and fitting conclusion to the trilogy that kept me turning the pages throughout. When the main action seemed to conclude 100 pages before the end, it was clear another twist was coming, but when it arrived its nature still managed to take me by surprise. The romance elements ended well too, which was satisfying, and overall it felt like a pleasing wrapping up of the story. This third book was, as you would expect a little more action packed than book two and returned the series, for me at least, to the five-star rating of the first volume. Recommended for fans of historical fiction action-romance books.
