Duke of Pleasure by Elizabeth Hoyt

Why Do We Like This Book?

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]

Favorite Quotes

“They’re so far away, ain’t they, the stars? But they’re always there, no matter where you might be in the world. You might be miles apart from someone, maybe in a different town or city, even, but if’n they look up, they’ll see the stars, just the same as you. If you think about it, it’s almost as if you’re never really apart, ain’t it?”
He wanted to take her, pull her from this room, prove to her that he was the male to her female.
“If you can’t dream of something you don’t need but want so much it makes your heart sing, well, you might as well just lay down right there and breathe your last, I reckon. Some things are worth more than bread or shoes or a warm bed.”

The Book Details
Publisher Synopsis


Bold. Brave. Brutally handsome. Hugh Fitzroy, the Duke of Kyle, is the king's secret weapon. Sent to defeat the notorious Lords of Chaos, he is ambushed in a London alley-and rescued by an unlikely ally: a masked stranger with the unmistakable curves of a woman.


Cocky. Clever. Courageously independent. Alf has survived on the perilous streets of St. Giles by disguising her sex. By day she is a boy, dealing in information and secrets. By night she's the notorious Ghost of St. Giles, a masked vigilante. But as she saves Hugh from assassins, she finds herself succumbing to temptation . . .


When Hugh hires Alf to investigate the Lords of Chaos, her worlds collide. Once Hugh realizes that the boy and the Ghost are the same, will Alf find the courage to become the woman she needs to be-before the Lords of Chaos destroy them both?
