Maiden Lane Series
A Masked Man . . .
Winter Makepeace lives a double life. By day he's the stoic headmaster of a home for foundling children. But the night brings out a darker side of Winter. As the moon rises, so does the Ghost of St. Giles—protector, judge, fugitive. When the Ghost, beaten and wounded, is rescued by a beautiful aristocrat, Winter has no idea that his two worlds are about to collide.
A Dangerous Woman . . .
Lady Isabel Beckinhall enjoys nothing more than a challenge. Yet when she's asked to tutor the Home's dour manager in the ways of society— flirtation, double-entendres, and scandalous liaisons—Isabel can't help wondering why his eyes seem so familiar—and his lips so tempting.
A Passion Neither Could Deny During the day Isabel and Winter engage in a battle of wills. At night their passions are revealed . . . But when little girls start disappearing from St. Giles, Winter must avenge them. For that he might have to sacrifice everything—the Home, Isabel . . . and his life
I gave this book a 4
Thief of Shadows by Elizabeth Hoyt is an exciting tale with the allure of The Legend of the Harlequin Ghost of St. Giles to entice us further. It is a wonderful story of saving the orphaned children off the streets of London using an urban legend of the times, to do so. Isabel and Winter spice up this story with their fiery passion, especially when a secret identity looms close to the surface. I was delighted when Winter's character became a chest thumping, alpha male and took Isabel in hand. This is the first book in the Maiden Lane series I have read, and I am looking forward to reading its predecessors.
