"Elizabeth Hoyt has outdone herself." -- Jennifer Ashley,New York Timesbestselling author


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.
Elizabeth Hoyt is theNew York Timesbestselling author of over seventeen lush historical romances including the Maiden Lane series.Publishers Weeklyhas called her writing "mesmerizing."

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really Enjoyed It 4.5 Stars Usually I'm not overly fond of the trope where the hero is younger than the heroine. That's why I was a bit sceptical whether I'd enjoy this one (Winter is 6 years younger than Isabel); but while reading it I was not that much bothered by the age difference, largely because Winter is very matured for his age. However, I did not see the point of him being a virgin. I can understand why he wouldn't have many lovers (considering how busy he is), but I don't think it was necessary for him to be a virgin. Other than that, Winter was a great hero. I also liked Isabel as a heroine. She is a widow but she is not celibate and she is not ashamed of it. I like that about her. I was also glad to see that Isabel was not condescending nor did she ever belittle Winter because of his social class. She embraced him for who he was and accepted everything without a care. Now the next book looks like it will be even more interesting because it features a marriage of convenience narrative (one of my favourites)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fantastic read Isobel and Winter have excellent on page chemistry and the added bonus of Winter Makepeace's double identity makes this a story that will appeal to the romantic in all of us.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it!! This is my favourite one in the series (so far). I really liked Winter and Isabel. Winter especially was a memorable hero and surprising in many ways. He and Isabel made a great pair despite the difference in social class.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A Letdown I had high expectations for this. I really liked the synopsis and thought this would be an exciting read. Instead it was a bit boring. I liked both hero and heroine but something was missing and I can't put my finger on what is was. The twenty-six year old hero being a virgin was a total turn-off and I'm not sure what the point of that was. Other than that, I like the man he is and the good deeds he's doing for children under cover of night. I too liked the graphic sex scenes and that the heroine wasn't a dried up young widow. Since her husband's death, she's had a few lovers. I also liked little Christopher. I'm not ususally too happy about children being in romance books but I enjoyed his character a lot and found him to be a little cutie who was just looking for a mother's love. I'm not happy with the way Isobel was cold to him but I understand it a bit. I received this from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
