Publisher's Summary

When a masked man…
Twenty years ago Maximus Batten witnessed the brutal murders of his parents. Now the autocratic Duke of Wakefield, he spends his days ruling Parliament. But by night, disguised as the Ghost of St. Giles, he prowls the grim alleys of St. Giles, ever on the hunt for the murderer. One night he finds a fiery woman who meets him toe-to-toe-and won't back down…
Meets his match…
Artemis Greaves toils as a lady's companion, but hiding beneath the plain brown serge of her dress is the heart of a huntress. When the ghost of St. Giles rescues her from footpads, she recognizes a kindred spirit-and is intrigued. She's even more intrigued when she realizes who exactly the notorious ghost is by day…
Desire ignites a dangerous passion.
Artemis makes a bold move: she demands that Maximus use his influence to free her imprisoned brother - or she will expose him as the ghost. But blackmailing a powerful duke isn't without risks. Now that she has the tiger by the tail, can she withstand his ire - or the temptation of his embrace?

What an amazing book. The book was suspenseful and full of twists as well as passion. I have enjoyed all of the books in the series, although they are not marked as such when doing a search. This book, however, is my favorite in the ghost of St. Giles series. I can not recommend this book enough. I wish I could have rated it a ten. The narration is also very good. Don’t hesitate in purchasing. A++++++++

This one didn't work for me

Although I've loved just about everything else E. Hoyt has written, this novel seemed very different from the others. It didn't feel like it should be part of the Maiden Lane series. The way Maximus spoke to Artemis was so melodramatic it distracted me and took me out of the story. It might not be the narrator's fault since the writing called for it. My all-time Hoyt favorite is Scandalous Desires, with Mickey O'Connor and Silence Hollingbrook. BTW, I e-mailed Hatchette Audio to ask why Ashford MacNab isn't narrating these books anymore, and they said they couldn't comment on contractual issues. I ran across the fact that Ashford M. has a pseudonym, Polly Lee--just found 25 books on Audible!
