From New York Times bestselling author Elizabeth Hoyt comes the fifth thrilling title of danger, desire, and dark passions from her sensual Georgian Maiden Lane series.
Since the death of his first wife, Godric St John has devoted his nights to protecting the innocent of London disguised as the notorious Ghost of St Giles. When Lord Griffin Reading discovers Godric's secret double life he presents him with an offer he can't refuse. . . and Godric finds himself married to a young - and pregnant - stranger.
Two years ago Lady Margaret 'Megs' Reading lost both her lover and her unborn child - but not before being forced into a marriage of convenience with Godric St John, an older, dour gentleman she barely knew. No longer content to spend her days at her husband's country estate, Megs leaves for London to get the two things she wants most: to find and bring to justice the man who murdered Roger, her lover, and to have a child of her own. But in order to conceive a baby, she's going to have to seduce the husband she hasn't seen since their marriage breakfast.
