Publisher's Summary

Three men who made a sacred pact years before: to defend and protect the innocent of St. Giles - no matter the cost to themselves...
Since the death of his first wife, Godric St. John has devoted his nights to protecting the innocent of London disguised as the notorious Ghost of St. Giles. When Lord Griffin Reading discovers Godric's secret double life he presents him with an offer he can't refuse, and Godric finds himself married to a young - and pregnant - stranger.
Two years ago Lady Margaret "Megs" Reading lost both her lover and her unborn child - but not before being forced into a marriage of convenience with Godric St. John, an older, dour gentleman she barely knew. No longer content to spend her days at her husband's country estate, Megs leaves for London to get the two things she wants most: to find and bring to justice the man who murdered Roger, her lover, and to have a child of her own. But in order to conceive a baby, she's going to have to seduce the husband she hasn't seen since their marriage breakfast. (Maiden Lane, Book 5)

BRING BACK ASHFORD MCNAB - PLEASE!!!

Would you try another book from Elizabeth Hoyt and/or Emma Taylor?

No - I'll never buy another book narrated by Emma Taylor. She's terrible.


What did you like best about this story?

I didn't enjoy the story very much at all because the narration was so bad. I've still got 4 hrs to go and I'm looking into the buying the book on my Nook to finish it. I'm just not sure I can suffer through 4 more hours.


Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Emma Taylor?

Ashford McNab, Rosalyn Landor, Helen Stern, Rebecca DeLeeuw, Anne Flosnik


Was Lord of Darkness worth the listening time?

Not really. I seriously doubt that I ever listen to this book again. That's unfortunate because I've listened to the other books in this series several times each. I've thought about returning this book, but I guess I'll keep it.


Any additional comments?

I'm not sure that I like the fact that more and more people are aware of who the Ghost of St. Giles really are. There are just too many people who know now. That makes it unrealistic for me. How can that many people keep this kind of secret?

WHAT A SHAME... A GOOD BOOK RUINED BY NARRATION

Firstly, let's have some culpability here - so whoever's to blame at Hachette Audio/Audible for choosing Emma Taylor to narrate this book should be transferred to a Janitorial job because they obviously don't know their job.

I have loved all the previous books in the series and had this one on a pre-order, I couldn't wait - but unfortunately, and purely because of the narration, I found this one to be hard going - I even listened to a few chapters, stopped, listen to another book, then came back to this and I've never done this with any of Ms Hoyt's books before.

So, for this reason, it's very hard to judge whether it's been a really good book because the voices of the characters (as we, the listeners know) can make or break a listen and, as I seemed to dislike most of the characters purely by the way they were portrayed by ET, it's so difficult to get passed this. However I must and did, there's tragedy, loss, danger but then comes awakenings, laughter, desire, joy and, of course, passion. As with all the Maiden Lane series there's a good plot with thrills along the way.

Worth a credit? Yes because I'm invested in the series but please please please go back to Ashford MacNab and, as for ET - well she can go home.
