Description

A MAN CONDEMNED . . .

Falsely accused of murder and mute from a near-fatal beating, Apollo Greaves, Viscount Kilbourne has escaped from Bedlam. With the Crown's soldiers at his heels, he finds refuge in the ruins of a pleasure garden, toiling as a simple gardener. But when a vivacious young woman moves in, he's quickly driven to distraction . . .

A DESPERATE WOMAN . . .

London's premier actress, Lily Stump, is down on her luck when she's forced to move into a scorched theatre with her maid and small son. But she and her tiny family aren't the only inhabitants-a silent, hulking beast of a man also calls the charred ruins home. Yet when she catches him reading her plays, Lily realizes there's more to this man than meets the eye.

OUT OF ASH, DESIRE FLARES

Though scorching passion draws them together, Apollo knows that Lily is keeping secrets. When his past catches up with him, he's forced to make a choice: his love for Lily . . . or the explosive truth that will set him free.

    Elizabeth Holt is a fabulous story teller, but I'm not a fan of explicit sexual details.... especially told repeatedly. It's so tiresome after the first encounter. While readers may find it instructional, it's far more scintillating to discover intimate delights on one's own. This novel's story line continues the intriguing tale of London's wily social set in the mid-18th century. And intrigue it is, the sole reason I've now read everyone one of this series, though I skip past paragraphs that deliver laborious fine print about sexual encounters. Like the Viagara ads, however, it may draw lots of readers.

    Elizabeth Hoyt had done it again with this fairy taleish book. Start out with a hero who can’t speak due to an injury to his neck, add in the fact that he’s on the run as an escapee from Bedlam, then mix in a beautiful and blacklisted actress hiding away on an island in the middle of London and you wind up with an amazing and creative story.
