However, I really didn't take to Meg - she's decided she wants a baby so turns up expecting her husband-of-convenience to do the deed. She's never wondered why he married her when she was pregnant by another man, or bothered to find out anything about him. She sort of assumes he's old - which he isn't, and turns up planning to seduce herself pregnant - not talk to the man and try to see where this sterile marriage of theirs might go. She wants a baby and that seems to trump everything else.
So I didn't like her. and initially wanted Godric to tell her to take her thoughtless, selfish little self back to the country and leave him be. But he doesn't, she improves, and... well, read book to find out!
I enjoyed the secondary characters, - the thwarted dragoon, the intelligent companion, the ghastly heiress... I'll read on with the series because I rate Ms Hoyt as a writer, but for me this is my least preferred. Oh, and while I'm griping, the Ghost concept is taking over. The first 2 or even 3 of these books had the Ghost playing a minor role - now we've had 2, and I think the next one is also based around the Ghost. All fine and fair, but there's limit to how many death defying escapes across roof tops and speedy recoveries from broken bones and sword slashes I'm willing to read about. It's all getting a bit Superman or Batman - except that here we have Harlequin Man!
This is the story Godric St John a Ghost of St Giles and his Wife Lady Margaret. To anyone just reading an Elizabeth Hoyt and choosing this book as their first I urge you to stop and read the 1st book in the series although the book can stand alone it is much better having read the 1st 4 in the series. But I digress... This is the story of Godric and Margaret and their courtship after their marriage. The couple had been forced/Blackmailed to wed by Lady Margaret’s older Brother Griffin (This event happens in the 2nd book of the series Notorious Pleasures) Both our hero and heroine had suffered the loss of love Godric’s 1st wife had dies due to a debilitating disease and Margaret’s true love and father of her unborn child had dies at the hands of the Ghost of ST Giles. Lady Margaret after the wedding retires to the country to live with Godric’s fathers 2nd Family and have her child however not long after she miscarries. Lady Margaret recovered from the loss of child and lover has decided that she wants to be a parent and returns to London with her young Sister in-law Sarah to seduce her reluctant husband and seek revenge on the Ghost of St Giles.
The couple reunite but not in the traditional sense as lady Margaret does not realise that the man she holds at Gunpoint is her husband for he is the Ghost of St Giles or at least one of them! And Godric upon realising that it is his wife that holds him at gunpoint wonders why she has returned to London.Read more ›
waiting for book 6 Duke of Midnight.
There are several secondary characters throughout the storyline and many had been introduced in previous books. But Elizabeth brings together several additional members from both sides of the family as well as friends and neighbors with stories yet to be told. The secretive Ghost of St. Giles plays a prominent role throughout and it is Margaret's amazing acceptance of his true identity that leads her to believe that she has been mistaken about her husband's intentions all along.
Again, throughout the building of their relationship, Margaret and Godric must overcome the ghosts from each of their pasts. Margaret has for so long kept her deceased lover on a pedestal that no man could possibly do any better and the memory Godric's long suffering dead wife has forced the man into a secret life in the dark streets saving women and children from unseen evil.Read more ›

St John's story. A slow-growing love story, a sparky heroine, a damaged hero and lively, engaging writing (with well-tempered erotic scenes). I enjoyed it.Published 4 months ago by gimmielinda

This was the best out of all the books I've read by this author. The same theme occurs through the Maiden Lane series and the plot is predictable.Published 16 months ago by Sonia Beckford
