Lord of Darkness by Elizabeth Hoyt

The newest Maiden Lane series is out today.  Yay!  It is going to be a wonderful birthday!  You can read online the prologue of LORD OF DARKNESS by Elizabeth Hoyt.  When you buy an Elizabeth Hoyt book, your hours of entertainment is guaranteed!

When the previous book about Winter Makepeace came out, I was so sad because I thought the series would end, and I won't have my dose of the Ghost of St. Giles anymore.  But here is Godric St. John.  He is an interesting character to read.  Godric has depth, and a sense of humor. I find myself laughing out loud with his dry, deadpan humor.

Margaret, the baby of Makepeace family. From the previous book, she fell in love with Roger, and had a baby with him before marriage. She did not care because she was in love, but unfortunately, Roger was killed. Her brother arranged for her to be married to Godric, then she promptly lost her baby after the wedding.

Fast forward two years, and here's Megs, trying to make a connection with her husband of two years. I find her effort endearing, and at times, hilarious. Then there's Godric, with his secret that got him into this predicament in the first place.

This book has enjoyable plot, clever and entertaining conversations, and fascinating supporting cast. It's like Downtown Abbey and Pride Pride and Prejudice in terms of enjoyment.

I highly recommend this book. Elizabeth Hoyt had outdone herself, again. A huge thanks to Jessica for this opportunity to review my favorite author's book. Just so you know, I have an MPT (Multi-state Practice Test), a lawyer skills exam tomorrow...and here I am devouring Ms. Hoyt's book!
