A light-hearted Regency fantasy series of novellas, for readers who like a little Powerpuff Girls sprinkled in their Georgette Heyer.
Young widow Annabel Chalfont, Countess of Fellbridge, has two small sons to raise, a mountain of her late husband’s debts to pay off, and a secret: she’s a shadow-shaper, able to manipulate shadow as anyone else might clay. Along with six other aristocratic ladies, she’s also a Lady Patroness of Almack’s, the most fashionable club in Regency London.
What the world doesn’t know is that this exclusive group of women are all possessed of extraordinary powers, which they use to solve London’s supernatural crime. But as the long shadow of the Emperor Napoleon looms from France, the Lady Patronesses will face their greatest challenge yet: to save England itself.
