Thief of Shadows by Elizabeth Hoyt (Audio Edition)

Narrated by Ashford McNab

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ This book was great! I loved Winter Makepeace. He is such an honourable man and he keeps himself this way until Lady Beckinhall threatens his sanity. These two together are fantastic! I loved how the roles were reversed, she the more experience and he the innocent. She the aggressor and teacher, though Winter stole that role some times.

There was some great action.. How could there not be when the Ghost of St.Giles is around. The lead characters had some wonderful moments, great banter and awesome chemistry. Who knew I would have to say yet again: that this is my favourite of the series so far!!   
This may sound foolish, and I know they are just children… but I really want Joseph Tinbox and Peach to get a story later in this series. He could be all grown up and comeback to her after years of letters.. Yes.. I know, I am ever the romantic!!

I have already downloaded book 5 in this series and can’t wait to read it! I am sad to see that the narrator is not the same... as Ashford McNab is fantastic! Here's hoping this new narrator can compare!

The Blurb:


Winter Makepeace lives a double life. By day he's the stoic headmaster of a home for foundling children. But the night brings out a darker side of Winter. As the moon rises, so does the Ghost of St. Giles-protector, judge, fugitive. When the Ghost, beaten and wounded, is rescued by a beautiful aristocrat, Winter has no idea that his two worlds are about to collide.


Lady Isabel Beckinhall enjoys nothing more than a challenge. Yet when she's asked to tutor the Home's dour manager in the ways of society-flirtation, double-entendres, and scandalous liaisons-Isabel can't help wondering why his eyes seem so familiar-and his lips so tempting.


During the day Isabel and Winter engage in a battle of wills. At night their passions are revealed . . . But when little girls start disappearing from St. Giles, Winter must avenge them. For that he might have to sacrifice everything-the Home, Isabel . . . and his life.
