Thief of Shadows by Elizabeth Hoyt
Well, this is the fourth book in the Maiden Lane Series. All the stories of Maiden Lane take place in St. Giles. Not the safest place in London. We meet up with Lady Isabel Beckinhall who is to meet up with Mr. Winter Makepeace, the manger of the Home for Unfortunate Infants and Foundling Children. Yeah, I know a mouthful. Unavailable at the time she arrives she decided to head home, but Lady Beckinhall finds something in the road. Not really a something, but a someone, The Ghost of St. Giles.
The mysterious Ghost of St. Giles, goes around St. Giles saving the people while prancing around in a Harlequin outfit. No one knows who this masked man is, but the one who wears the mask. Which would surprise everyone. No one ever figure that the mild manner man, Winter Makepeace, would be the Ghost of St. Giles. Until he came across Isabel started figure out who the masked man is.
An amazing book by Elizabeth Hoyt. I love Winter's and Isabel's chemistry, each of them wears a mask in front of society not wanting the world to see their true selves. However, they are able to break down the walls for each other. Conquering fears that they both have to find their ultimate happiness. Such a wonderful book, which y'all should check out if you have a chance.
