Thief of Shadows: Maiden Lane, Book 4 | [Elizabeth Hoyt]

Thief of Shadows: Maiden Lane, Book 4

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. 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, Isabel can't help wondering why his eyes seem so familiar - and his lips so tempting.

Publisher's Summary

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.

    "A great story and a great listen."

    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!

    "Well worth the wait!"

    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.

    Story
    "Not to shabby... The woman is the rogue"
    What did you like best about Thief of Shadows? What did you like least?

    The hero had morales... The woman seemed a little stuck up


    Would you be willing to try another book from Elizabeth Hoyt? Why or why not?

    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.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    Decent


    Do you think Thief of Shadows needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    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.

    Story
    "Over all good,but..."

    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.

    Full of mystery and passion!!!

    She had a great performance - her nuances made the story come to life

    "Excellent Series. Listen from the start."

    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.

    "One of the Best Series Ever!"
    Would you listen to Thief of Shadows again? Why?

    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!


    What does Ashford MacNab bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Her voice is perfect for this series, she pulls you in and weaves a spell.

    Story
    "Wonderful book Loved the main characters"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Thief of Shadows to be better than the print version?

    I have not read the print version but I loved this audio book


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Thief of Shadows?

    When Winter decided he was going the marry Isabel and he was going to have to give up being the ghost of St. Giles


    What about Ashford MacNab’s performance did you like?

    Yes, I enjoyed her narration of the story


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

    Unfortunately I could not listen to the book in one sitting but would want to.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Good enough to look forward to book 5!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Thief of Shadows to be better than the print version?

    Didn't read the print version. Why would buy the same book twice?


    What other book might you compare Thief of Shadows to and why?

    Any series that keeps you wanting more. The kind of story that ends with each book but leaves a thread to be followed to the next.


    Which character ??? as performed by Ashford MacNab ??? was your favorite?

    Winter. I guess I like the strong silent type. Not much to say but.....


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    "Just who is Winter Makepeace?"


    Any additional comments?

    Just when you sigh and think there can't be another...the bait. Can't wait for the bite!
