She’s taking charge… Prim, proper, and thrifty, Eve Dinwoody is all business when it comes to protecting her brother’s investment. But when she agrees to control the purse strings of London’s premier pleasure garden, Harte’s Folly, she finds herself butting heads with an infuriating scoundrel who can’t be controlled. He’s running the show… Bawdy and bold, Asa Makepeace doesn’t have time for a penny-pinching prude like Eve. As the garden’s larger-than-life owner, he’s already dealing with self-centered sopranos and temperamental tenors. He’s not about to let an aristocratic woman boss him around … no matter how enticing she is. But love conquers all. In spite of her lack of theatrical experience—and her fiery clashes with Asa—Eve is determined to turn Harte’s Folly into a smashing success. But the harder she tries to manage the stubborn rake, the harder it is to ignore his seductive charm and raw magnetism. There’s no denying the smoldering fire between them—and trying to put it out would be the greatest folly of all.

Editorial Reviews

4 1/2 Stars! Top Pick! There is enchantment in the Maiden Lane series, not just the fairy tales Hoyt infuses into the memorable romances, but the wonder of love combined with passion, unique plotlines and unforgettable characters. RT Book Reviews on Duke of Midnight
I adore the Maiden Lane series, and this fifth book is a very welcome addition to the series . . . [It's] sexy and sweet all at the same time . . . This can be read as a standalone, but I adore each book in this series and encourage you to start from the beginning. USA Today's Happy Ever After Blog on Lord of Darkness
Lord of Darkness is classic Elizabeth Hoyt, meaning it's unique, engaging, and leaves readers on the edge of their seats, waiting for the next book . . . an incredible addition to the fantastic Maiden Lane series. I Joyfully Recommend Godric and Megs's tale, for it's an amazing, well-crafted story with an intriguing plot and a lovely, touching romance that I want to enjoy again and again and again . . . simply enchanting! JoyfullyReviewed.com on Lord of Darkness
Richly drawn characters fill the pages of this emotionally charged mix of mystery and romance. Publishers Weekly on Duke of Midnight
4 1/2 Stars! Top Pick! Darling Beast is wondrous, magical and joyous -- a read to remember. RT Book Reviews
Hoyt's exquisitely nuanced characters, vividly detailed setting, and seemingly effortless and elegant writing provide the splendid material from which she fashions yet another ravishingly romantic love story. Booklist (starred review) on Darling Beast
“Maiden Lane and its inhabitants have long captivated readers, and the latest series installment is just as enchanting as fans could desire. This is a story of love’s healing powers, family, courage, and overcoming the past. It is a story that takes your breath away and leaves you uplifted. Hoyt does it again!” RT Book Reviews (4 ½ stars, Top Pick!)
“Narrator Ashford McNab makes Eve and Asa’s unlikely pairing a foregone conclusion. Further, her reading gives the story’s eighteenth-century-London setting verisimilitude for contemporary listeners…it’s hard to imagine better historical romance. McNab’s greatest success is her projection of the undercurrent of longing between Eve and Asa. Her realistic delivery of their shared secrets makes the romance that much more convincing. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
