Fans of the Maiden Lane series who have been anxiously awaiting Winter Makepeace’s story will be more than satisfied with Hoyt’s innovative, emotional, sensual and even humorous installment. Hoyt’s beautiful blending of the essential elements of a fairy tale into a stunning love story enhances this delicious “keeper.”

Everyone knows that Winter Makepeace is the stoic manager of an orphanage, just as they know the elusive Ghost of St. Giles is the protector and avenger of the weak and needy. What no one knows is that they are one and the same. After Winter is caught by a mob, he is rescued by Lady Isabel, who whisks the masked man into her carriage and home. When he is gone by morning, she has his kiss to remember. Since the orphanage is in desperate need of funds, Winter must raise money. Lady Isabel is chosen to tutor him in the ways of polite society. But there is something about his eyes and mouth that awakens Isabel’s passion, and they are quickly caught up in both danger and a thrilling desire. (FOREVER, Jul., 400 pp., $7.99)
