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.

    "I love this series!"
    Would you listen to Thief of Shadows again? Why?

    Absolutely. I've actually started to listen to the series all over again.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Winter Makepeace. I've adored him since the first book and I'm so happy that he finally has a HEA


    Any additional comments?

    I originally bought the first book in the Maiden Lane series because Ashford MacNab narrated it. I ended up really enjoying "Wicked Intentions" and immediately purchased the next books in the series. The characters, the setting, the plot, the romance are all superbly done and Ashfrord MacNab is an excellent narrator. This book is sure to please especially if you've read the previous installments.

    "Dreamy"
    If you could sum up Thief of Shadows in three words, what would they be?

    Sexy, daring, entertaining


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Winter, because he is everything a man should be, strong of character and decent without losing his manliness.


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

    She has a very pleasant voice, her tone is soothing and really makes the characters come alive on the page. Have loved all her narrations so far.


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

    Really not a fan of this question.


    Any additional comments?

    This is up there as being one of my all time favorite romances. Sexy, and intelligent. I liked that the female lead wasn't a virgin and knew what she wanted. She was smart and engaging, while Winter was truly everything I like in a man. He was strong, determined and driven.

    This is such a good listen. Would love more romances like this one, not afraid of describing sex as it should be. Getting really tired over sex scenes being about flying or flowers popping in brains. Prefer them to be a bit more realistic, gritty and sexy.

    Hoyt does a great job and MacNab needs to narrator more books.

    "Elizabeth Hoyt redeemed herself..."
    If you could sum up Thief of Shadows in three words, what would they be?

    Thief of Shadows answers the questions from the previous two books.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Thank God she did not kill off the Ghost.


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

    I enjoyed Ashford in the previous books and I appreciated her consistency.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This book allowed me to exhale...because the one before it took my breath away;

    "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!

    Story
    "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.

    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!
