Duke of Pleasure by Elizabeth Hoyt
Another beautifully written, action, drama, and romance-packed Maiden Lane story from Elizabeth Hoyt. This whole series is amazing, but I've been especially looking forward to Alf's story. Alf is an enigmatic character whose story unfolded in a way that kept the pages turning. And the duke, well, the duke was worth his salt too. I love a good duke. Who doesn't, right? RIGHT? Especially dukes involved with intrigue, and investigations of mysterious circumstances surrounding death (murder?), secret societies, and love affairs. This was a definite favorite for me, one I highly recommend. It's up there with Lord of Darkness, Duke of Midnight and Duke of Sin (my top 3 favorite Maiden Lane books). ~Lina [November 2016]
