Narrated by Ashford McNab
♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ½ I loved Lord Caire. I loved how he wanted Temperance right away and yet seemed to almost push her away and pull her close at the same time. He felt the desire to shock her often. How he wanted and needed her to care for him but thought that wasn't possible. He was a wonderful Hero!
Temperance was a strong lead. I liked her straightforward attitude and how she's willing to thwart convention for what she wants. I felt the sparks between these two right away and I kept reading, just waiting to watch them on the page together. I have had this book for a LONG time.. I cannot believe I haven't read it before now! Though on the plus side the Maiden Lane series has lots of books in it for me to enjoy!
I am pretty sure this is the first time I have read a book by Elizabeth Hoyt, but it will certainly not be my last! The Narrator Ashford McNab. She was fantastic! Even just after this first time listening to her, I will be adding her to my favourites list!
Here's the Blurb:
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 the area like the back of her hand—she cares for its children 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 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 a cold bargain soon falls prey to a passion neither can control—and may well destroy them both.
