Publisher's Summary

Audie Award Nominee, Romance, 2013

Can a pirate learn that the only true treasure lies in a woman's heart?

Widowed Silence Hollingbrook is impoverished, lovely, and kind - and nine months ago she made a horrible mistake. She went to a river pirate for help in saving her husband, and in the process, made a bargain that cost her her marriage. That night wounded her so terribly that she hides in the foundling home she helps run with her brother. Except now that same river pirate is back... and he's asking for her help.

"Charming" Mickey O'Connor is the most ruthless river pirate in London. Devastatingly handsome and fearsomely intelligent, he clawed his way up through London's criminal underworld. Mickey has no use for tender emotions like compassion and love, and he sees people as pawns to be manipulated. And yet he's never been able to forget the naive captain's wife who came to him for help and spent one memorable night in his bed...talking.

When his bastard baby girl was dumped in his lap - her mother having died - Mickey couldn't resist the Machiavellian urge to leave the baby on Silence's doorstep. The baby would be hidden from his enemies, and he'd also bind Silence to him by her love for his daughter.

    "Magnificent Journey!"

    This audiobook is absolutely wonderful! If you have followed Elizabeth Hoyt's Maiden Lane series and daydreamed about what would happen when Charming Mickey and Silence Hollingbook finally got together, your daydreams could not compare to their actual story. The storyline will keep you riveted to whatever device you have selected to hear your audiobooks, and the realness that both author and narrator create in Charming Mickey's dialogue makes him more endearing. Other characters from previous books are mentioned, but Silence and Charming Mickey are definitely the focus. Hoyt also does a wonderful job in enticing the listener to want to hear more of Winter’s story in her next installment. The twists and turns and cliffhanger moments will take you on an emotional journey that will leave your mouth hanging open in surprise, and tears threating to fall as you begin to wonder if you will get the happy ending you want for Silence and her Charming Mickey. Oh yeah, and of course, the “Ghosts of St. Giles is revealed. Listen to find out if your suspicions as to his identify are correct.

    "The perfect narrator for this fascinating series"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, but only a VERY CLOSE friend! The sex is so graphic, I'd want to be sure the friend wouldn't be offended.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Scandalous Desires?

    When they are all in the kitchen giving the dog a bath in his tub, then Micky walks in.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Too many to choose from.


    Any additional comments?

    I know not everyone likes the narrator, but to me she is the PERFECT narrator for this series. Her narration is quiet, deliberate, and somber, which reflects the seriousness of the character (and her entire family) as well as the atmosphere of the whole book. She complements the atmosphere created by the author. Her Irish accent is fantastic.

    "The Best Book of the Series"

    I really liked this series, but this was clearly the best (so far)
    The Narrator was amazing, she has an amazing voice. I loved her voice of baby Mary.
    Silence & Mickey were both characters that you could not help but love.
    The mystery of the "Ghost of St. Giles becomes clearer, introducing Book 4 of this series.
    This book is not to be missed.

    "I couldn't stop listening!"

    Loved the story. I really liked how Elizabeth Hoyt created this story from a previous one and how she weaves another tale in with it. Very clever and very entertaining. This is the second book I've listened to and I'm hooked. I'm going for number three!
