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.
Pay another visit to Maiden Lane.

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.
Audio-fiction ADDICT !
No matter the edition. I think this book is amazing eitherway with its excellent storyline and interaction of all the characters
I started with the first book where the hero and heroine's characters first introduced. I was captivated by them and jumped ahead to listen to the third book in the series instead of the second book! I love love love the book
Mikky ofcourse !!!!!!! Such contradicting yet captivating character !
What is not my favorite scene !!!!! I loved the whole thing ! I don't want to spoil the book :)
The narration was improved from the first book of the series. But still Ashford made Mikky's voice as if a teenager not fitting his charismatic character !
Never judge a book by its movie
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.
This is the best in the series thus far....looking forward to Winter's tale next.... I love the narrator as well. She does an excellent job on bringing the book to life!!!!
Yes, but only a VERY CLOSE friend! The sex is so graphic, I'd want to be sure the friend wouldn't be offended.
When they are all in the kitchen giving the dog a bath in his tub, then Micky walks in.
Too many to choose from.
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.
Please read this series in order. It is a delightful, funny, entertaining, sexy, romantic, suspenseful, read. This last book was my favorite of the series. I love when a writer can make one love and cheer for the bad guy. It is not easy to keep us historical romance novel readers enthralled, but you will be with this series. At least, it kept me listening late into the night. Great ending.
As an avid audio book listener, I really have enjoyed The Maiden Lane Series. I had waited patiently for the latest installment to be released and it was certainly well worth the wait.
The revelation of the Ghost of St. Giles identity.
Asford McNab is a very talented Narrator, she made this story come to life. Her voice is awesome.
I actually listened to the whole book in 2 days. If I had been reading it would classify as a page turner.
I love Elizabeth Hoyt's stories, I find her characters interesting and lovable. I am a huge historical romance fan and this book rates in my top 10 list.
I have already recommended this book to a friend. It was a great read, and couldn't put it down.
Pirate Mickey, His character, and voice draw you in. He is someone you fall in love with
with a deep interest and quirky personality
Pirate Mickey - loved his accent'
In part two towards the end you don't see the twist coming in the book until you hear it. I was driving to work, and was brought to tears.
I have been reading all Elizabeth Hoyt books, and this was her best book by far.
I thought I would be drawn into this book right away but the plot seems very similar to some of Lisa Kleypas' books. I only listened to about an hour or less. If I could return this book, I would. The reader seems excellent.
