[Read by Claudia Harris] When a masked man . . . Twenty years ago Maximus Batten witnessed the brutal murders of his parents. Now the autocratic Duke of Wakefield, he spends his days ruling Parliament. But by night, disguised as the Ghost of St. Giles, he prowls the city's grim alleys, ever on the hunt for the murderer. One night he finds a fiery woman who meets him toe-to-toe-and won't back down. Meets his match . . . Artemis Greaves toils as a lady's companion, but hiding beneath the plain brown serge of her dress is the heart of a huntress. When the Ghost of St. Giles rescues her from footpads, she recognizes a kindred spirit and is intrigued. She's even more intrigued when she realizes who exactly the notorious Ghost is by day. Desire ignites a dangerous passion. Artemis makes a bold move: she demands that Maximus use his influence to free her imprisoned brother -- or she will expose him as the Ghost. But blackmailing a powerful duke isn't without risks. Now that she has the tiger by the tail, can she withstand his ire or the temptation of his embrace?

I'm finished, but I'm still kind of thinking about how to rate this. The heroine, she gets all the stars. And as Melody said, the nickname annoyed me. The hero...him, I don't know what to give him. He's obsessed, but with his own legacy. He's uncompromising on that. He's also upfront about that, an...
Whoa. This book could possibly be my favorite Maiden Lane story. I'd been waiting to read the Duke of Wakefield's story and it absolutely lived up to my expectations. Artemis Greaves is a lady's companion to her cousin Penelope when a family scandal leaves her with no other options. Her beloved tw...
I think that next to Charming Mickey and Silence's story, this is my favorite. I loved watching the Duke of Wakefield squirm and lose his precious control and order. He is a formidable man and Artemis is the perfect woman to help him lose that control. She is strong, she has to be to earn his not...
