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.

Thief of Shadows answers the questions from the previous two books.
Thank God she did not kill off the Ghost.
I enjoyed Ashford in the previous books and I appreciated her consistency.
This book allowed me to exhale...because the one before it took my breath away;
I just discovered Elizabeth Hoyt and I really have enjoyed her Maiden Lane series. This is the fourth book in the series and I have been really looking forward to Winter's story. I like this one the best, so far, and appreciate that this story especially include the male point of view as well. I don't love all of Ashford's male voices but so far, the male leads have been generally good. The chemistry is good and the sex scenes and flirting scenes are hot and more creative than many. I also like that Hoyt's female leads are not all wilting virgins. Hoyt has written a compelling series and I like that her books take place in the Georgian period as I get tired of all the Regency books sometimes.
I suggest reading them in order, but you don't have too. I just like learning about Winter throughout the other books. He is so reserved at first, but he's a winner in this one!
I had discovered this series before Thief of Shadows came out. I was so curious because I really kept wondering who the ghost was. This book did not disappoint me in any way. It was also nice to get a sneak peak at the next book coming out. Ashford McNab did not disappoint, either. Although I generally like Anne Flosnick, it's nice to hear other people doing period books.
I love losing myself in books of any kind
The hero had morales... The woman seemed a little stuck up
I really love Elizabeth Hoyt as an author as she writes a lot about the underdog. The storyline is not just about the rich and privileged.
I always love the happily ever afters it is always nice to get an updated of the charaters. Would also like to see a story on some of the orphaned children.
Over all good but gets bogged down a little in the middle as if the author added in some of the erotic parts after the main story was written slowing down the flow of the story.
I have been married to my wonderful husband for almost 30 years. I love reading - romance, adventure... Captain Blood is really great!
Full of mystery and passion!!!
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.
She had a great performance - her nuances made the story come to life
I enjoyed this series from the start. Intrigue and romance in every story. The Ghost of St. Giles is a great mysterious hero from the start. Am surprised and pleased that there will be a book 5.
I LOVE this series. Ms Hoyt is an excellent writer. I don't necessarily listen to the same book twice, but I definitely look forward to the next in the series!
Her voice is perfect for this series, she pulls you in and weaves a spell.
I'm not sure if it was the story or the narrater but I tried 5 times to listen to this book and couldn't get past the 3rd chapter
I have not read the print version but I loved this audio book
When Winter decided he was going the marry Isabel and he was going to have to give up being the ghost of St. Giles
Yes, I enjoyed her narration of the story
Unfortunately I could not listen to the book in one sitting but would want to.
This audiobook is absolutely wonderful! If you have followed Elizabeth Hoyt's Maiden Lane series and daydreamed about what would happen when Ghost of Giles and Isabel 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 created in Isabel and Winter's dialogue makes them more endearing.
