Lord of Darkness by Elizabeth Hoyt

Lord of Darkness (Maiden Lane, #5)Historical Fiction

Elizabeth Hoyt has done it again.  Another great Maiden Lane story with another Ghost of St. Giles. 

Godric St. John has been a ghost of a man since his wife took years to die.  He is also one of the Ghosts of St. Giles. Two years ago he was blackmailed into marring Lady Margaret Reading.  She was pregnant with another man's child (a man who had just been murdered) at the time but miscarried shortly after.  She has been living the the country and Godric in the city but as the book starts that is changing.  Margaret has come to town with two goals.  Get pregnant and find her lovers murderer. 

Margaret or Megs as she prefers and Godric are both wonderful characters.  Both have lost people they love and both think they cannot love again.  It is really fun to see how they both begin to live and love again. 

Margaret also wants to find the person who killed her first love.  That brings the story of the Ghost and a reappearance of the lassie snatchers from the last book into the story.  The Ghost is in danger again.  He wants to keep his identity from Margaret but things happen that make it harder and harder to do. 

There is a set up for the next book woven into the story.  The characters for this story appear but really do not play a part in Lord of DarknessThey did not add to this story.  They only appeared as a set up for the third Ghost of St Giles book.

Grand Central Publishing released Lord of Darkness by Elizabeth Hoyt in 2013.



  1. I don't read much of Historical, but this does sound good! I'll make sure to recommend it to my fellow blogger Janhvi who loves the genre. I hope you enjoy the Lords Of Darkness series! :) Awesome review, Jo! :)
