At the mercy of the darkness which terrifies her, Pru is alone except for 40,000 dead bodies. She starts screaming with no hope as the black starts to consume her.

I have never been a big fan of the paranormal, however I am a huge fan of historical fiction. The author has the ability to weave both into one story and the characters come to life in the very first sentence. Pru is an innocent who quickly learns that life is not as easy as others would make it to be. She thinks she is going quite mad when her world is invaded by ghosts, demons, vampires and the like. But she knows deep in her heart that what she feels is real and those around her are not tryin ...more

Pru and her brother were orphaned and being twins they had a special bond – the
author put that to excellent use in later showing how much love there was
between the two. Describing Pru’s heartache and devastation so extreme for a
young girl who had never had to fend for herself. Michael had protected and
provided for her every need. Pru was delicate, dainty and so beautiful it took
most peoples breath away – beautiful and pure. With this in mind the author was
able to portray, how such a fragil

Lady Elizabeth Prudence White - Pru to family and friends - is just about to have her "coming out" by Regency England standards. Her twin brother, Michael David Densington White - the sixth Earl of White - as her only surviving relative has enlisted to fight Napoleon, but Michael assures Pru that nothing will happen to him. At a ball held on the day that Napoleon attacks, Fearghass MacDonald - the Duke of Sumerled - much to Michael's consternation, introduces himself to Pru and asks if he may co ...more

This paranormal romance takes place during the aftermath of the Battle of Waterloo. The protagonist, Lady Elizabeth Prudence White or Pru, lives in luxury with her twin brother Michael. He leaves home to fight the French, but never returns.
Fearing the worst, Pru wanders around the battlefield looking for Michael. She finds Michael’s dead body along with the body of her new handsome friend, Fearghass MacDonald. She emotionally falls apart.
In the shadows is a French soldier, Pierre Blanchard who w
May 13, 2012 Toni rated it really liked it
This starts as nothing more than a Regency novel but in the first chapter, while it still remains light-hearted, something disturbing sinister tugs at the seams. The characterizations are startling while engendering a distinct sympathy. Fearghass and Dughlass may be twins but one, with his Scots accent, and the other distinctly English, are distinctly individuals. Pru is a delight, in her determination to get through everything that happens, whether it’s the death of brother and betrothed, vampi ...more

I want to thank Linda Hays-Gibbs for letting me read My Angel, My Light as Darkness Falls. :) I enjoyed the attention to detail, specifically on a very spooky battlefield with our heroine. Without giving too much away, I must say I was worried for Pru throughout the story as Ms. Hays-Gibbs' writing of the inevitable doom made for great suspense. I just had to keep reading to see if Pru would be all right. Historicals are a favorite of mine and Ms. Hays-Gibbs' lush descriptions are exactly what I ...more
Mar 17, 2012 Sally rated it it was amazing
My Angel, My Light as Darkness Falls is a wonderful hybrid of a book. It has elements of Regency romance (a splendid ball and a noble suitor), elements of gothic horror (a demon and various dark powers including an ancient vampire), and elements of coming of age story (the sheltered heroine has to learn to care for herself). It is frightening, sad and laugh-aloud funny (had me giggling hysterically when the heroine pondered on what to do with the Frenchman she had in the closet). Read this if yo ...more

When I saw the synopsis for the book My Angel, My Light as Darkness Falls, being offered by the author in exchange for an honest review, I realized it might have been interesting to read, and I wasn't wrong. This is a fantastic book, and I look forward to reading the sequel.

I liked this book and think it is a good read.

Very good!

I didn't enjoy this one. The heroine was naive, innocent and just plain clueless, which was appropriate for 1815, but her "goodness" and "light" induced a number of eye rolls. I am so pure that i don't that every man wants to jump my bones wasn't believable. In war times, young maidens tend to grow up a little.

It's an easy read but I wouldn't read it again.
A proper foundation wasn't laid and thus the book lacked depth and character development. None of the characters moved me and so I d

It was a great read all dark in the beginning but many changes to Kerp you interested. I really enjoyed the fantasy mixed with realism. I can't wait to read more like this one.
