Lord of Darkness by Elizabeth Hoyt (Audio Edition)

Narrated by Emma Taylor
Maiden Lane #5

♥ ♥ ♥ ½ This story while good enough to listen to, seems to almost be a repeat of the last book. Another Ghost of St.Giles who is still on the hunt for the Lassie Snatchers, etc. Which I think made me become a bit bored. Godric and Margaret had good chemistry, but when the last quarter of the book seemed to be just them having sex over and over, I found they lost some of it.  However, I also think the narrator had a part in this too. Her voice was ok to listen too but I didn't seem to get the emotions out of her as I did with McNab who had narrated the previous books.
Now while I felt Emma Taylor wasn’t as good as Ashford McNab.. I don't think she's as bad as other reviewers make her sound…I for one, have listened to worse.  She does pause in odd spots during the sentence and pronounces words differently (ie Sin-Jun she says Saint John) but I got used to her and was able to finish the book.

I am hesitant to read the next book as it, yet again, has another Ghost of St.Giles. If I am being honest here, the first man was the best ghost so far. And now that SO many people know about Godric being the ghost, I find it hard to believe that he is still a mystery.  I will have to read up some reviews and see what people have to say about the next book.

Here's the blurb:

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.
