Publisher's Summary

When a masked man…

Twenty years ago Maximus Batten witnessed the brutal murders of his parents. Now the autocratic Duke of Wakefield, he spends his days ruling Parliament. But by night, disguised as the Ghost of St. Giles, he prowls the grim alleys of St. Giles, ever on the hunt for the murderer. One night he finds a fiery woman who meets him toe-to-toe-and won't back down…

Meets his match…

Artemis Greaves toils as a lady's companion, but hiding beneath the plain brown serge of her dress is the heart of a huntress. When the ghost of St. Giles rescues her from footpads, she recognizes a kindred spirit-and is intrigued. She's even more intrigued when she realizes who exactly the notorious ghost is by day…

Desire ignites a dangerous passion.

Artemis makes a bold move: she demands that Maximus use his influence to free her imprisoned brother - or she will expose him as the ghost. But blackmailing a powerful duke isn't without risks. Now that she has the tiger by the tail, can she withstand his ire - or the temptation of his embrace?

    "Great addition to the Maiden Lane Series"

    I really loved this addition to the Maiden Lane series, and enjoyed Claudia Harris's narration as well. I am eagerly anticipating the next installment featuring Apollo. October can't come fast enough.

    "Good Story with Just "Ok" Narration"

    This was definitely the weakest of the narrators in the series . . . too bad because the storyline is very good. I completely agree with the reviews that state the narrator sounds angry all the time. She practically barks every line the Duke utters. Certainly some situations called for it but mostly the narrator's attempts to make him stern just came across as inappropriately angry. The love story itself was heartfelt and I'm sure in the hands of Ashford McNab I would have enjoyed it more. Still, if you've listened to the series, you definitely don't want to miss this story.

    I love Epic Fantasy....have become a Historical Romance fan because I am a sucker for a good Happily Ever After. Good characters are a must

    Story
    "Maiden Lane Mystery and Fiery Romance"
    Would you listen to Duke of Midnight again? Why?

    Yes I probably will...but probably the second half is what I will end up really listening to again. The first part of the book was a little slower than most of the past Maiden Lane books.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Duke of Midnight?

    I thought it was hilarious when Scarborough, Penelope, and Maximus were discussing the color China different drinks should be served in. Very well written funny & sarcastic scene.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Claudia Harris?

    Yes....but hopefully she won't do the next Maiden Lane book. She has a pleasant voice. But I did not like the way she did the voices of past characters. She made them sound very pompous. I also did not like the way she portrayed Maximus. I never could fully "like" Maximus and I am not sure it wasn't because of the way she played his voice. She always made him sound very angry and so self centered I just couldn't get over it. I think if she had just used a little different tone every once in a while when he was speaking to Artemis I might have liked him better.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Obviously the ending was great. And the scenes in the woods between Artemis and Maximus were good. I loved that she again made dogs part of the story.


    Any additional comments?

    It's not the best book in the Maiden Lane series, but it is credit worthy and to anyone who has been reading the Maiden Lane series it is a must read!

    "Another winner! Great story in a terrific series."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Every story in this series has conflict and suspense as well as the romantic tension. I highly recommend this series.


    Have you listened to any of Claudia Harris’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not listened to this reader before, but found her very engaging.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I wished I had enough time to hear all of he book in one sitting, but I took two days to hear all of it. I am glad to have taken the extra time thinking about the story.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoy Elizabeth Hoyt's novels and would recommend them to anyone who enjoys historical novels.

    Any additional comments?

    Absolutely awesome!! Loved Maximus and Artemis. Loved Phoebe, Apollo and Miss Picklewood, simply because of her funny name.
    The Maiden Lane series is one of the best I've ever read and I can't wait for the next.
