Elizabeth Hoyt’s highly anticipated Historical Romance THIEF OF SHADOWS,
the latest in her nationally bestselling MAIDEN LANE series,
has just been published as a paperback and eBook original by Grand Central Publishing.
♦ ♦ ♦
In THIEF OF SHADOWS, Winter Makepeace’s days are spent as the headmaster of a home for foundling children, one that has recently been adopted by “The Ladies Syndicate,” a group of aristocratic women committed to the works of the home and its betterment. Night, however, brings out the darker side of Winter. As the moon rises so does the Ghost of St. Giles, the most notorious footpad in London. Hidden behind a Harlequin’s mask, he is rumored by some to both rescue and defend, and by others to ravish and murder. When Winter, as the Ghost, is beaten and wounded, he is rescued and cared for by a beautiful aristocrat. Now his two worlds are about to collide.
Lady Isabel Beckinhall enjoys nothing more than a challenge. Yet when, as a member of the Ladies’ Syndicate, she is asked to tutor Winter so that he can move within Society for the benefit of the Home, she hesitates at the thought of teaching the dour manager the ways of society—flirtation, double-entendres, and scandalous liaisons. Nonetheless, she does so and as their lessons progress she is repeatedly distracted as she wonders why his eyes seem so familiar and his lips so very tempting.
By day, Isabel and Winter engage in a battle of wills. At night their passions are revealed. Soon though, the Ghost is called to action. Little girls are disappearing, their loss blamed on the “lassie snatchers,” who are plying their evil trade in St. Giles. Winter must avenge them. To do so, he must risk losing everything—the Home, Isabel and quite possibly his life.
Once again, Elizabeth Hoyt brings a time, place and people alive to captivate readers with their emotion, hopes and passion.

Thanks for the giveaway.. This book sounds like an excellent read.. I have not read any of her books, but I would love to have this one on my tbr shelf..
This is a new to me author, but one that I shall be aiming to start reading just as soon as possible.
‘Thief Of Shadows’ does sound as though it could be read as a stand alone novel, although to do it justice, I suspect that I need to read the books in order, to get the full impact of the storyline.
I am really ‘getting into’ my historical novels just lately, so this series will make a welcome addition, thanks for sharing.
Gorgeous cover on this one. Please enter me in the drawing.
I don’t usually read books like this but this one sounds pretty good. I do know a lot of people really like this author.
