Format: Mass Market Paperback
So Still the Night is Kim Lenox's new historical paranormal romance set in Victorian London, and I found this second book in the Shadow Guard series to be just as sumptuous as her first, Night Falls Darkly.

As the love child of Cleopatra and Mark Antony, it's not surprising that hero Marcus Helios is beautiful, passionate and larger-than-life. In the pursuit of becoming legendary, at the end of the Night Falls Darkly, Mark sacrifices himself, so that in So Still the Night he is fighting for his existence and trying to prevent his transition into one of the evil souls that the Shadow Guards exterminate.

The key to saving himself rests with information held by the delightful Mina Limpett, whose eccentric father has disappeared with some ancient Akkadian scrolls of supreme supernatural importance. From the moment Mark and Mina meet, the attraction sizzles. She's feisty and smart and the perfect match for a formerly self-involved god-like creature like him.

Lenox does a fabulous job of blending nail-biting dark suspense with evocative description and occasional moments of wonderful wry humor. As the story progresses, Mark is losing time and possibly descending into madness and murder, the body count is rising, and a new and terrifying killer, the Dark Bride of Jack the Ripper, emerges. Despite the danger of getting distracted, Mark can't resist the urge to pursue Mina. Falling for him complicates her life, as she must contend with the jealousy of female rivals for his affection. And later Mina faces the realization that the man she loves is not mortal and will never be hers alone.

Lenox brings the story to a smooth and stunning conclusion with surprising twists that give Mark and Mina's love story a satisfying ending while also leading into the next book in the series. As always, I loved Lenox's storytelling and greatly look forward to the new installment in the Shadow Guard series, Darker Than Night (April 2010 by NAL).

SO STILL THE NIGHT (A Novel of the Shadow Guard)
KIM LENOX
Paranormal Romance

Rating: 4.5 Enchantments

Marcus Helios is not only an immortal, a former member of the elite Shadow Guard and the son of Antony and Cleopatra, but he also in the depths of Transcension, bringing him to the depths of madness. His only hope of salvation lies in two ancient scrolls he believes are in the possession of the beautiful Willowmina, and he'll do whatever it takes to get his hands on them. But with the mysterious Dark Bride hunting him in London and having to deal with his twin sister Seline, who's desperate to become his official assassin, things are complicated enough without falling for the beautiful Mina.

With her father faking his own death, sending her back to London to report the grim news, then to go into deep mourning for her own safety, Mina suddenly finds herself on her own. When strange things begin to happen, such as being the victim of an apparent random attack in the street and having her father's papers shredded in her room, she becomes uncomfortable and slightly scared for her own safety Surprisingly, she finds herself inexplicably drawn to Mark, Lord Alexander. When he unexpectedly asks for her hand in marriage, she's thrilled when her uncle agrees to the betrothal. Now she can get out of the house and hopefully start over, completely unaware of her new husband's immortality.

I adored SO STILL THE NIGHT. While not your typical historical romance, Mina and Mark are two strong individuals, both fighting their own battles: Mark's for his sanity and Mina for trying to overcome the loss of her father. The chemistry between the two is some of the strongest I've read and the scenes between them are sizzling hot.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Kim Lenox follows up "Night Falls Darkly" with "So Still The Night", book two of her historical paranormal 'Shadow Guard' series. Her immortals are those who hunt down the bad guys who have made their way to the human realm, killing merrily along the way. The increase in slaughter recently is all part of their scheme to prepare the way for Tantalus, uber-bad guy.

Mina has spent her life traipsing on the heels of her father's fascination with books and learning. On their late trip to Nepal, her father's increasing strange behavior took a wild turn and he left Mina to make her way home alone, saying it would be safer for her if all believed him dead. Her long trip back to England was a battle to keep from constantly looking over her shoulder...WHAT was it about those scrolls her father kept gibbering about? Could it be that there is more to this world than Mina ever imagined?

Marcus is the son of Antony and Cleopatra, made an immortal Shadow Guard. He sacrificed himself to save his leader, Archer, and now if he doesn't get his hands on Mina's father's scrolls, he will be hunted down by the remaining Shadow Guards and killed to stop his descent into evil. But his trademark seduction routines don't seem to be working with Mina, and it's not long before Marcus is fighting BOTH his descent and his growing love for Mina.

For such a smart woman Mina teeters back and forth between acting logically and being a twit. I lost count of her TSTL (too stupid to live) moves about halfway into the book. Once you realize the bad guys are real...STAY WITH THE GOOD GUYS! Her constant waffling on Marcus was quite irritating too--she loves him, she loves him not; she likes him but refuses to fall in love; she loves him but he's immortal; this goes on and on and on and on.
