‘Thief of Shadows’ by Elizabeth Hoyt

tos ehSTORY: A Masked Man . . .

Winter Makepeace lives a double life. By day he’s the stoic headmaster of a home for foundling children. But the night brings out a darker side of Winter. As the moon rises, so does the Ghost of St. Giles-protector, judge, fugitive. When the Ghost, beaten and wounded, is rescued by a beautiful aristocrat, Winter has no idea that his two worlds are about to collide.

A Dangerous Woman . . .

Lady Isabel Beckinhall enjoys nothing more than a challenge. Yet when she’s asked to tutor the Home’s dour manager in the ways of society-flirtation, double-entendres, and scandalous liaisons-Isabel can’t help wondering why his eyes seem so familiar-and his lips so tempting.

A Passion Neither Could Deny

During the day Isabel and Winter engage in a battle of wills. At night their passions are revealed . . . But when little girls start disappearing from St. Giles, Winter must avenge them. For that he might have to sacrifice everything-the Home, Isabel . . . and his life.

REVIEW: You know how I tell you that each of these tales in this series can stand alone? Well, this one doesn’t… come to think of it, none really do. Just forget what I said before! In order for you to get the full impact of these two, I think you’re better of reading the previous book. Better yet, read all of the earlier books in this series. They are all very good.

This tale picks up right where ‘Scandalous Desires’ left off, and I loved it! Not because of fast moving pace, or how well it was written and plotted, but because of both main characters. If anyone was ever made for Winter and sorely unsuitable, that would be Isabel. And yet they meshed perfectly! I also loved the fact that she was the experienced one and a few years older.

I can safely say that so far, this is my favorite in this series. Get it!

  1. I loved that Winter was a virgin hero(although he caught on quickly!) and Isabel was older and more experienced. I thought I had guessed the identity of the Ghost of St. Giles but I was way off track.
