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-flirtation, double-entendres, and scandalous liaisons-Isabel can't help wondering why his eyes seem so familiar-and his lips so tempting.
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 knew I would have loved this book, Elizabeth Hoyt’s writing style is always so impeccably captivating and sensually overwhelming that it’s impossible not to be totally enthralled every time. What I really wasn’t expecting was to fall in love with Winter Makepeace! I never felt a great connection with him and yet, it totally happened. Beautiful under every aspect, his tormented soul and the chemistry with Lady Isabel Beckinhall are what allure the reader the most. How everything develops between the two of them not only amuses you, but arouses you. And this just from their chatting, so mesmerizing . . .

Romance, seduction, mystery, action, danger, this book has been one of the best historical romances I’ve read so far. I strongly suggest you not only to pick this book, but the entire series because Hoyt delivers you some of the most intriguing plots with outstanding characters you can ever dream of!

    This book sounds awesome. When you use words like 'sensually overwhelming', 'enthralled' and 'captivating' I have to read this.

    • It makes me extremely happy to hear that! This book (and so the series) is a very beautiful well written historical romance and it deserves every word I used. I so hope you read it soon, Emma!
