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

WHEN STRANGERS IN THE NIGHT

He lives in the shadows. As the mysterious masked avenger known as the Ghost of St. Giles, Godric St. John's only goal is to protect the innocent of London. Until the night he confronts a fearless young lady pointing a pistol at his head-and realizes she is his wife . . .

BECOME LOVERS . . .

Lady Margaret Reading has vowed to kill the Ghost of St. Giles-the man who murdered her one true love. Returning to London, and to the man she hasn't seen since their wedding day, Margaret does not recognize the man behind the mask. Fierce, commanding, and dangerous, the notorious Ghost of St. Giles is everything she feared he would be-and so much more . . .

DESIRE IS THE ULTIMATE DANGER

When passion flares, these two intimate strangers can't keep from revealing more of themselves than they had ever planned. But when Margaret learns the truth-that the Ghost is her husband-the game is up and the players must surrender . . . to the temptation that could destroy them both. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shyloh | 2/18/2014

    " Love, love, love her books. I love how each of her characters are so realistic, and have so much personality. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cassondra Windwalker | 2/1/2014

    " Although a well-written and pleasant read, Lord of Darkness is pedantic and predictable. However, Hoyt does an excellent job of painting her secondary characters. I do look forward to reading the stories of Artemis Greaves and Lady Phoebe, which are surely soon to come. Lord of Darkness is worth reading, though, if only for the Tale of the Hellequin that is interwoven throughout the main text. This parallel fairytale is delicate and beautiful and leaves the reader racing through the pages for more. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dana Alma | 1/31/2014

    " Lord of Darkness by Elizabeth Hoyt will captivate you and transport you to another time. Bold characters leave lasting impressions as this tasty tale unravels for readers. Godric will ensnare readers with his desires and anguish. Margaret is bold and will stop at nothing to get what she wants. Lord of Darkness, was sensual, exciting, and has left me hanging on the edge for the next story in the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nicole Luiken | 1/31/2014

    " Another lovely historical romance from Elizabeth Hoyt. I really enjoyed reading about Megs bring Godric back to (figurative) life. Tender and hot by turns. I'll be eagerly awaiting the next book int he series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Paula Kabbaj | 1/31/2014

    " Another fabulous entry in the Maiden Lane series. All I can say is more more I'm the series. I'm already anticipating Wakefields story. "

    " This book had some nice moments, and I was willing enough to go along with the Ghost of St. Giles thing (which really is fairly silly), but there were a number of things that kept throwing me out. Sometimes it was anachronistic language ("druthers," for example), sometimes it was just weirdness (why would the heroine be writing long chatty letters to the hero, and signing them "Yours affectionately" when a)she barely knows him, and b)is supposedly super depressed?). But mostly it was that the heroine never really gelled into an authentic-seeming person to me. She mostly just seemed like a collection of devices; everything she is described to be (which doesn't always seem to go with how she acts) is merely there to bring about something in the hero. She brings him to life; how her sparkling personality accomplishes that while at the same time supposedly being moody/depressed/vengeful doesn't make sense to me. "

    " Fabulous book - more of a 4.5 than a 4. Wicked Intentions (Book 1 in this series) remains my favorite, but this was a fabulous edition and a likely re-read at some point. It cleansed my palate nicely after Winter's book (which was okay, but...meh). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lissa | 1/20/2014

    " Absolutely loved this story! I laughed out loud, yelled at the characters, teared up...it was great! I don't want to include any details because part of the enjoyment was being reacquainted with characters from other novels. But now I can't wait for the next story!! "

    " Can't help but love Godric! Left me wanting to know more about Artemis and Apollo. Can't wait for the next one in the series. "
