Firelight, first in the Darkest London Series by Kristen Callihan, is a paranormal historical romance set in 1881 Victorian London. The story has a convoluted plot replete with mystery, magic, demons, and street thugs. Main character, Miranda Ellis is no shrinking violet, instead she is a strong-willed and capable, though flawed, young woman. Likewise, her love interest, Benjamin Archer, has depth as well as brains, brawn, and dashing good looks. The sexual and emotional tension between the characters grows with each plot twist. Building to an ending that stands other Cinderella stories on their ear.
A good book to recommend to paranormal romance lovers.
... note while demons figured strongly in this novel, there are werewolf sightings in the sequels, which focus on Miranda's equally remarkable sisters.
