Format: Paperback
If I could give this book a 4.5, I would. My (small and spoiler-free) gripes (and what kept this from being a 5-star book for me):

Like the vast majority of American novelists (Carla Kelly notwithstanding), Ms Hoyt's tone when writing about London is just a bit "off". And as this whole series is set in and around a London slum, that's annoying. Georgette Heyer couldn't have written well about East L.A. - I know that, but it still annoys me. I hate being able to tell an author isn't English, if the book is set in England.

Gripe #2: I'm tired of this plot. I never liked the idea of 18th-Century Bruce Waynes (and this hero, being a Duke - is even sillier).

On to the good - and there's a heap of it. The romance is interesting, the main characters fully fleshed-out with REAL motives for their actions. The supporting characters are great - a short but terrific scene between our heroine and a fellow (older) companion especially stood out to me. The love scenes are seriously good (and - yay! - take place at a realistic point in the story).

In short, top-class stuff from a mature author at the peak of her powers (though my favourite of Ms Hoyt's books is still The Raven Prince...).

PS: Ms Hoyt: I'd like to see Apollo's story - but please, no more Ghost!

Really loved this series and so sad it has come to an end, but what a way to go out, with the sexy , brave, strong but haunted Maximus and the feisty, tough heroine with a heart of Gold. Loved the secondary characters too especially Apollo and would love to see him with his own story. Great read.

As with all Maiden Lane stories, there's depth, intrigue, heart break and fantastic naughty bits. I absolutely loved both Artemis and Maximus in this story and was impressed with how deeply I sympathised with them and their situation.

Over the moon to see some old characters turn up and have all my fingers crossed that there will be another one to come.

I love all the Maiden Lane books and this latest instalment is a cracking good read. Elizabeth Hoyt creates some memorable characters. Artemis and Maximus have so much depth and it was heartbreaking to follow them through their romance when things looked so unlikely to turn out well. It was also a joy to meet up with so many old friends from the earlier books in the series whilst other characters show great promise for future stories! Hope they won't be too long coming!

At long last, we get to read about the Ghost of St. Giles #3 - Maximus Batten - otherwise known as the Duke of Wakefield. We have read about him in the other Ghosts' books but in the "Duke of Midnight" we finally learn what has driven him to roam St. Giles during the darkness of the night.

Artemis Greaves is an impoverished lady who serves as her cousin Penelope's companion. Penelope isn't the brightest gal on the block but she is Wakefield's ideal choice of duchess with her bloodline and her fortune. He cares not for love, only for the dukedom. So much so, that even after he begins to fall for the very fascinating Artemis, he holds solidly with his intentions to marry Penelope.

*Slight Spoilers* For four long years, Artemis's twin brother, Apollo, has been locked in Bedlam - accused of madness and murder because he was found passed out alongside three murdered men. Artemis knows that Apollo is innocent and definitely not mad, however, she has no money to help him and it is driving her nuts. When Apollo is beat nearly to death by his guards, she is frantic and decides she will blackmail Maximus into rescuing Apollo. You see, she has figured out that Maximus is the Ghost. However, Maximus isn't so easily blackmailed but he does have a soft spot for Artemis so he agrees to help her.

Action/Romance/Intrigue with Maximus and Artemis. Wakefield's character has always been a puzzle but with the help of his Diana, Artemis, the puzzle is finally unraveled. From the streets of London to a house party at Wakefield's country estate, then back to London, the reader is fascinated and held captive to the story line of Maximus and Artemis.

The secondary story of Apollo is absolutely haunting.

I usually enjoy elizabeth hoyts novel but this one did not do it for me I found it quite ridicules. We had met the ghost of st giles in the previous novels but here he was again only a different man.it was more like batman in his secret cave. Alsothe subplot with appolo seemed poor. All in all I found it quite annoying and all the characters have stupid names. It the usual steamy sex scenes but it was disappointing.
