Maiden Lane #03: Scandalous Desiresby Elizabeth Hoyt
Synopses & Reviews
CAN A PIRATE LEARN . . .
River pirate "Charming" Mickey O'Connor has lifted himself from the depths of the slums to be the king of St. Giles. Anything he wants he gets-with one exception. Silence Hollingbrook has been haunting his dreams ever since she spent a single night in his bed.
THAT THE ONLY TRUE TREASURE . . .
Once Silence was willing to sacrifice anything to save the man she loved. Now a widow, she's finally found peace when Charming Mickey comes storming back into her life with an offer she can't refuse. But this time she won't be the only one paying the price for his sins.
LIES IN A WOMAN'S HEART?
When his past comes back to torment him, Mickey must keep Silence safe from a merciless enemy, while wrestling with the delicious hold this widow has on his heart. And in the face of mounting danger, both will have to surrender to something even more terrifying . . . true love.
"Hoyt's third Maiden Lane novel (after February 2011's Notorious Pleasures) is historical romance at its best. In 18th-century London, widow Silence Hollingbrook helps her brother run the Home for Unfortunate Infants and Foundling Children. Silence has bonded with young Mary Darling, the illegitimate daughter of notorious pirate Mickey O'Connor. When Mick's enemies threaten Mary, he takes her back into his home; Silence, knowing her reputation has already been tarnished by her previous association with Mick, insists on accompanying the child. Hoyt slowly reveals the man behind the pirate, one who buried his ability to love so he could rise above the slums of St. Giles. Silence and Mick share their deepest secrets, creating a mutual trust that is tested as a mysterious enemy threatens them both. Series fans will be enthralled, while new readers will find this emotionally charged installment stands very well alone." Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
