A MASKED MAN . . . Winter Makepeace lives a double life. By day he's the stoic headmaster of a home for foundling children. But the night brings out a darker side of Winter. As the moon rises, so does the Ghost of St. Giles-protector, judge, fugitive. When the Ghost, beaten and wounded, is rescued by a beautiful aristocrat, Winter has no idea that his two worlds are about to collide. A DANGEROUS WOMAN . . . Lady Isabel Beckinhall enjoys nothing more than a challenge. Yet when she's asked to tutor the Home's dour manager in the ways of society-flirtation, double-entendres, and scandalous liaisons-Isabel can't help wondering why his eyes seem so familiar-and his lips so tempting. A PASSION NEITHER COULD DENY During the day Isabel and Winter engage in a battle of wills. At night their passions are revealed . . . But when little girls start disappearing from St. Giles, Winter must avenge them. For that he might have to sacrifice everything-the Home, Isabel . . . and his life. (2011)

Winter Makepeace is the staid manager of an orphanage by day and works as the Ghost of St Giles during the night. Isobel Baroness Beckinhall has a combative relationship with him but she finds herself attracted to the Ghost and then to him and eventually they find a way to have a good relationship.
"Has anyone cherished you just for yourself?" I wasn't highly anticipating this couple but they showed me and had some great heat between them. Our hero Winter is the epitome of still waters run deep. His and Isabel's back and forth, especially in regards to their sexual innuendos, had some spine ti...
Winter Makepeace has a secret; by day he is a stiff, no none sense, never smile, all too serious manager of the home. By night he is the witty, fluid, daredevil and a vigilante named the Ghost of St. Giles. He has forsaken all happiness, no marriage, no family, no life outside the two roles he plays...
