Hoyt's fourth Maiden Lane Georgian-era romance (after Scandalous Desires) is an expert blend of scintillating romance and mystery. The masked Ghost of St. Giles rescues orphaned children from the streets of one of London's less than savory neighborhoods. Widowed baroness Isabel Beckinhall rescues the unconscious "ghost" after finding him injured in the street; before she can ascertain his identity, he awakens and begs her to leave his mask in place. Little does she know he is Winter Makepeace, manager of a local orphanage, whom Isabel finds "dour" as she tutors him in charming potential donors. Neither anticipates the passion blossoming between them, a passion that will likely end in heartbreak in their class-conscious society. Suspense adds intensity as "lassie snatchers" kidnap orphans before the Ghost can save them, and the romance between the beautiful and quick-witted Isabel and the masked champion of the downtrodden propels this novel to the top of its genre.

As a member of the Ladies Syndicate for the Benefit of the Home for Unfortunate Infants and Foundling Children, the widowed Baroness Isabel Beckinhall finds herself in the depressed London area of St. Giles. She is there to meet with the home's manager, Winter Makepeace, but instead she rescues from a mob the Ghost of St. Giles, a masked man in Harlequin motley who is the elusive protector of the denizens of the impoverished neighborhood. Later, Isabel chides Winter, a cold and austere young man at odds with his new patronesses and the society of aristocrats, for missing their appointment. But to entice supporters to the home, it has been suggested that Winter needs some polish and that the intriguing Lady Isabel should school the schoolteacher. Neither one has the ghost of a chance of coming out of this unscathed. Verdict Hoyt's (Scandalous Desires) latest Georgian tale features a woman who hides the disappointment of her childless marriage behind insouciance and a young crusader afraid to release the beast that guides his clandestine persona. Yet when the pair finally come together, desire and long-denied sensuality explode upon the page. Expect more ghostly intrigue in Hoyt's upcoming Lord of Darkness.
