From the New York Times bestselling author who Lisa Kleypas hails as "too good to be true" comes the first book in her beloved Maiden Lane series.A MAN CONTROLLED BY HIS DESIRES . . . Infamous for his wild, sensual needs, Lazarus Huntington, Lord Caire, is searching for a savage killer in St. Giles, London's most notorious slum. Widowed Temperance Dews knows St. Giles like the back of her hand-she's spent a lifetime caring for its inhabitants at the foundling home her family established. Now that home is at risk . . . A WOMAN HAUNTED BY HER PAST . . . Caire makes a simple offer-in return for Temperance's help navigating the perilous alleys of St. Giles, he will introduce her to London's high society so that she can find a benefactor for the home. But Temperance may not be the innocent she seems, and what begins as cold calculation soon falls prey to a passion that neither can control-one that may well destroy them both.A BARGAIN NEITHER COULD REFUSE Don't miss Elizabeth Hoyt's brand new Greycourt series beginning with Not the Duke's Darling, on sale in December 2018!
Finally worked my way to book 1 of the series. Started with Darling Beast, which I think is 7 or 8. So far only one, #2, that I didnt like. Fortunately, all are stand alones, but definitely all entertwined, featuring either the patrons of the orphanage, or one of several Ghosts of St Giles. . For some reason, she leads off each chapter with bits of a fairytale which seems unrelated. I find it very distracting and annoying, but stop and read each one in fear Ill miss something that matters. So far, I would have missed nothing by skipping over all of them., but she hooked me, so I continue to stop & start the story while mumbling curses. . One character, Alf, appeas in every book. Cant wait to read his/her story in Novembers Duke of Pleasure. .
