Duke of Midnight by Elizabeth Hoyt

When I started Duke of Midnight by Elizabeth Hoyt, I wasn't sure I was going to like the story. It wasn't because of the story or the author. I actually adore the author. However, it was the hero, Maximus Batten, Duke of Wakefield. Don't get me wrong I love stories about Duke heroes. Come on I did a blog on my favorite Duke heroes.

At the beginning Wakefield wasn't shaping out to be a fave. I didn't have a problem with his double life as the Ghost of St. Giles. I actually prefer him when he was the Ghost, because he was able to put away his autocratic self and be a decent guy. As the story progress, I was impress with Wakefield and he slowly change. I mean slowly; the guy was stubborn. Come on he was about to marry the wrong girl, because of the dukedom. Fortunately, he was able to come to his senses before he made a terrible mistake.

Now Artemis Greaves, I loved her. She was loyal to her hen-witted cousin. I mean some of the things she had to do, I mean I don't know if I would be able to do them so willingly. Then again I'm stubborn. However, Artemis will fight for what she believes is right. I mean she practically takes care and fights for her brother while he's in the bedlam.

Overall, I did like the story. Yes, I struggle with Wakefield, but I eventually warm to him and he did soften up in the story. I love that he met his match in Artemis. I can't wait to see what Ms. Hoyt will come up with next, and I'm sure it will be good. So, if you liked the other Maiden Lane stories, I believe y'all will enjoy Duke of Midnight.

  1. I have enjoyed this series and have been looking forward to Maximus and Artemis' story. He is one of the types of heroes I like. Artemis is a woman to admire and cheer for. I can't wait to read it.
