Book Description

26 Jun 2012 Maiden Lane (Book 4)

When society widow, Lady Isabel Beckinhall, becomes involved with the Home for Unfortunate Infants and Foundling Children, she soon clashes with its manager, Winter Makepeace, whom she finds severely monastic, terribly solemn . . . and quite distractingly intriguing. And Winter does have a secret: at night he transforms into the masked avenger, the Ghost of St Giles.

After the infamous Ghost of St Giles is wounded while rescuing a notorious pirate from the gallows, Isabel has no choice but to hide him from a ravenous mob, though doesn't discover his identity. Winter is haunted by this glimpse of the tender - and sensuous - side of Lady Beckinhall, though he knows that they are too far apart socially to ever be together. But when a relentless dragoon captain begins hunting the Ghost of St Giles, Winter must decide if he can trust his secret, his life - and his heart - to Isabel's hands.

5.0 out of 5 stars Blown away again 19 Aug 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have very recently found this fa author and can't understand why it has taken me so longer to explore her work, the novel holds you from the first few pages right up to the end sentence, a must read but defiantly an addition to any historical fiction lovers must haves !!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A hit with me 15 July 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Although Elizabeth's books are a little fantastical. for some reason I love them I can't put them down. All in the maiden lane series are excellent. The only one that was a bit iffy to me was the bondage scenes in the first book in the series. I don't like kinky sex. However I would still Highly recommend them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! 10 July 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Having read the other books in this series:

Book 1 - Wicked Intentions: A Maiden Lane Novel
Book 2 - Notorious Pleasures: A Maiden Lane Novel: Book Two
Book 3 - Scandalous Desires: A Maiden Lane novel

I can't really say how this, book 4, would work as a stand alone. Probably not badly, although you wouldn't know much about the Ghost, who features in all the other books. The leading ladies from the earlier books, sisters Temperance and Silence, and Lady Hero, and their men, either don't, or very peripherally appear.

This is a fine addition, although I was pretty certain I knew who the ghost was at the end of book 1 but remember a scene that meant it couldn't be who I thought. So I was pretty miffed to discover I was right all along, and shall re-read book 1 soon to see if I'm remembering things correctly. I also found the Winter presented in this book didn't really match the Winter presented in the other books - again, I need to re-read them to see if I'm right. But that all said and done, I liked the Winter presented here, very much liked the way the physical side of the relationship was initiated, with a neat about turn on the normal expectations, and liked how the emotional/intellectual relationship developed, and the effect on the two main characters of that developing relationship. I also liked that the issue of Isabel's apparent infertility wasn't simply swept aside by the arrival of a more virile (potent?) man...

5.0 out of 5 stars Thoroughly Enjoyable 26 Jan 2014
By Grandma
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Thoroughly enjoyed this whole series. Couldn't wait to read the next book. The whole series is connected by character, although each book does stand alone and tells its own story. I bought them all at once and read them one after the other - great. Typical historical romance escapism - highly unlikely in reality (I should think) but great entertainment! I believe there is another book in the pipeline for this series and I will be buying it when it is available.
