Forever Romance Spotlight + Review: Duke of Pleasure by Elizabeth Hoyt

The Maiden Lane Series, 11
Elizabeth Hoyt 
Grand Central Publishing Mass Market
November 29, 2016


Bold. Brave. Brutally handsome. Hugh Fitzroy, the Duke of Kyle, is the king's secret weapon. Sent to defeat the notorious Lords of Chaos, he is ambushed in a London alley-and rescued by an unlikely ally: a masked stranger with the unmistakable curves of a woman.


Cocky. Clever. Courageously independent. Alf has survived on the perilous streets of St. Giles by disguising her sex. By day she is a boy, dealing in information and secrets. By night she's the notorious Ghost of St. Giles, a masked vigilante. But as she saves Hugh from assassins, she finds herself succumbing to temptation . . . 


When Hugh hires Alf to investigate the Lords of Chaos, her worlds collide. Once Hugh realizes that the boy and the Ghost are the same, will Alf find the courage to become the woman she needs to be-before the Lords of Chaos destroy them both?

My Thoughts:

Hugh Fitzroy is nothing like Val. Hugh is broody and trying to do his job. However, when he encounters Alf who isn't like any boy he has ever met. Well, Alf isn't like any boy, because she's not. To top it all off, she's also the Ghost of St. Giles. WHAT! He's a girl. 

Anyway, we watch these two dance around one another. I mean by day Alf is trying to help Hugh catch the Lords of Chaos, and by night she's still helping Hugh catch them, but Hugh knows the Ghost is a girl. Boy does it start to unwind as Hugh realize that Alf is kind of the girl of his dreams. 

Boy these two have chemistry. Their banter is fun. She acts so cocky and he's so staid. They balance one another out. Poor Hugh he's not sure about his feelings through most of the book, but one thing is certain he wants Alf, the question is how badly he wants her. 

Overall, Duke of Pleasure is a pretty good read. Hugh was able to get a true happy ending, but now I need to know what is going to happen to Lady Jordan. Blast it I have until August to wait. The agony.
