Description
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.

        Hoyt’s fifth Maiden Lane romance (after Thief of Shadows) captures the essence of the Ghost of St. Giles, Georgian-era London’s “protector of the weak.” Godric St. John spends his days as a gentleman of leisure and his nights as the legendary Ghost, saving women and children from human predators. Then Godric’s wife, Megs, arrives in London after a two-year absence. Megs is determined to unmask and destroy the Ghost, believing that he was responsible for the death of her lover, Roger, who was killed before he could marry her. She also longs for children and wants Godric to consummate their marriage of convenience, but Godric walls himself off out of loyalty to his deceased first wife, Clara. Hoyt’s writing is imbued with great depth of emotion as she reveals Megs and Godric’s separate grief. Heartbreaking misunderstandings create an edgy tension-filled plot as the spouses must decide whether they can leave behind the past and embrace their future together. Agent: Susannah Taylor, Richard Henshaw Group.

        Thank God his wife is a terrible shot. That is the first thought that crosses Godric St. John's mind when he unexpectedly encounters an armed and very cranky Margaret Megs St. John in London's most dangerous neighborhood. To her credit, Megs has no idea she is shooting at her husband; she is really trying to put a hole in the Ghost of Saint Giles. Two years earlier, the Ghost of Saint Giles killed Roger Fraser-Burnsby, and Megs vowed she would one day exact revenge on the man who murdered the love of her life. Of course, Megs had another reason for coming to London. After their wedding, nearly two years ago, Megs and Godric have lived separate lives, but now Megs is determined to seduce her husband into giving her the one thing she desperately wants: a baby. But what to do now that she realizes her husband is the same man she has sworn to kill? The fifth installment in Hoyt's impeccably written, Georgian-set Maiden Lane series delivers plenty of swashbuckling thrills and wry wit, while the exquisitely crafted chemistry between Megs and Godric is pure passion.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2013, American Library Association.)
