      The first 70% was five stars and then the drama llama reared its ugly head and pissed me off Artemis was awesome and is one of my favorite romance heroines She was strong and confident and I lurved her She took control of her situation in life and didn t care what anyone thought She was too good for Maximus and everyone else around her except for Phoebe, who is also awesome.The smut love scenes were HOT The chemistry was great I loved the banter and the two leads were perfectly matched Artemis w [...]

      10 15 2013 So I got up at midnight to read this because of course I did Even with a wondrous thing like Thief of Shadows, I do always feel a little letdown with this series, but I think it s because I am looking forward to each release so much that I m bound to feel that way.In this case, though, there is a pretty basic element that I think is a real problem, and here it is view spoiler It is the end of the book 83% before we get Wakefield s POV during any sexual contact with Artemis, including [...]

      Do you want to be mine and only mine, away from this cursed world, in a place inhabited by just we two I had high hopes for Duke of Midnight, considering that most of my friends enjoyed it so much, and not only did this book not disappoint, it exceeded all my expectations I thoroughly enjoyed this wonderful HR story, and it pulled me in right from the beginning and firmly held there until the end It s been a while since I read anything that kept me turning pages like crazy This one was so engagi [...]

      4.5 Stars.Oh, Maximus, Maximus, Maximus Would you come to your senses and see the treasure that was straight in front of you Would you turn your nose up at society and do what was in your heart I really enjoyed this one I think of the reasons was that Artemis was not of his station but she stood up to him and he didn t know what to make of her.Maximus is a Duke and he must marry a noblewoman It would be unheard of for him to marry beneath his station But he wants Artemis, his goddess, his Diana [...]

      The male lead in this book is a douche But, I knew of his douchiness going into the book It turns out, though, that it didn t really matter because the female lead is so awesome that he pales in comparison She is strong, determined, and cunning She blackmails him into doing what she needs done, and won t let him control her even after he sleeps with her Yeah, no falling under the spell of his magic penis No swooning and letting him take over her world She is always in control Yay Girl power in t [...]

      3.85 A buddy read with the MacHalo Freaks Because we are romantic like that I have to admit it I am a complete sucker for Historical Romance I am not sure why, is it the clothing, is it the societal norms of the time, is it the idea of the gentleman hero But I love it all This series has been reviving around the seedy part of London in the 18th century and the legendary Ghosts of St Giles It is a bit repetitive, this being the sixth book in the series, but the truth is, there aren t very many va [...]

      Normally in a romance novel especially a HR one I can forgive the Hero almost anything and I often do But for some I ll mention it later reason I just never got there with him I spent the majority of the book mad at him and wondering when Artemis was going to figure out that she could do so much better for herself.The SkinnyMaximus is in the market for a wife and wants a perfect Duchess by his side Pretty much his only criteria is that she is beautiful, a virgin and from a wealthy family He does [...]

      I m always in the height of anticipation when it comes to Hoyt s newest book When I found out it was to be Maximus Batten, Duke of Wakefield book, I couldn t wait to see how Hoyt would make him eat his harsh words toward a kind lady s companion and what made him tick The thing was he was out shined by IMO the best heroine of the series so far Artemis Greaves Artemis has had some really crappy hands dealt to her in life and the last blow was her very sane twin brother Apollo thrown into Bedlam fo [...]

      It s about time Loved this I ve waited forever for the story of Maximus Batten, Duke of Wakefield I was pleasantly surprised that I loved the heroine than the guy I ve had my eye on Maximus since Notorious Pleasures Mister I can do no wrong is surely put to the test here He s used to giving orders and getting what he wants But in this story, his station in life is the one thing that is keeping him from his true desire.The mystery of the Ghost of St Giles continues We all know that Maximus is th [...]

      Five Glittering Stars I think I am running out of words to describe just how much I LOVE this series Time and again, Ms Hoyt enthrals me with her unforgettable characters, compelling plots and sensual romances.This was not a man to be swayed by gentleness, beauty, or sweet words He would bend assuming he was even capable of bending only for reasons of his own.I didn t particularly like Maximus in the previous books but there was just something about him that intrigued me I wanted to know what sh [...]

      EDIT read, 3,5 stars.Elizabeth Hoyt is one of my favorite romance authorsbut really though That uptight, self serving a ssh t who tried to marry off his own sister to an abusive man she didn t love, for his selfish ambitious purposes, is getting a book I do have some reluctant faith, but his redemption better be believable.

      Who knew that the cold and seemingly unfeeling Maximus Batten, the Duke of Wakefield, could burn so passionately when in the company of the right woman He had no idea how he would do it yet, but he meant to best her He d show her that he was the master, and when she d admitted his victory well, then he d have her And he d hold her, by God His huntress.His goddess Ever since the murder of his parents twenty years ago, Maximus Batten has promised himself that he would strive to be the perfect duke [...]

      I enjoyed this one just a bit than the last Maybe it was Maximus and his internal struggle with who he was, who he loved, his guilt.Maybe it was Artemis and her strength, her unwavering love, her sense of humor.Maybe it was Apollo I wonder about him.It doesn t much matter what it is Duke of Midnight was yet another wonderfully written book by Ms Hoyt A perfect addition to this series I m looking forward to reading on.

      3.75 starsI m conflicted on this one.What I lovedArtemis Her name suits her She of the Warrior Goddess, who brings a stuffy arrogant Duke to his knees and doesn t bend to his will or is reduced to begging Go girl Phoebe I can t tell you how much I adore this character and want all things wonderful, beautiful and good to happen to her She s so adorably charming I loved her genuine friendship with Artemis and this girl s whit is hysterically sharp and so on point Please don t lose it Apollo This c [...]

      I loved, loved the first books of this series, and I must admit that I like every one, but the first were the best In this one my main complaint is that Maximus is way too convinced that he has the right to keep Artemis without comitting to her completly I didn t like him He was obviously in love with her, but I felt like he was in love with his title obligations I felt that he didn t grovel enough at the end On the other hand I loved Artemis and her strenght She realizes soon in the story that [...]

      This is my first Elizabeth Hoyt and I enjoyed it, but am left confused and feel like a lot of questions went unanswered Perhaps, it is better to say I feel like I was missing a chapter or two.You may say Of course you are confused, silly, you started at book 6 in a series Duh SPOILERS The heroine, Artemis, is a poor relation and companion slave to a spoiled, beautiful heiress who has caught the hero s eye as the perfect Duchess to his exalted Dukedom Artemis is pretty awesome The author made her [...]

      Review posted Happily Ever After ReadsBlog rating B After losing both her parents and her twin brother who s locked in a mental institution after being accused of murdering three of his friends, Artemis is forced into taking a position as her cousin s companion, and while treated well, she s still little than her cousin Penelope s servant Her entire focus is on finding a way to save her brother Everyone else has written him off as a lost cause, a madman who should be forgotten, but he s the onl [...]

      My review contains spoilers and they re mostly my thoughts as I went with the book just because My, my How I love it when the uptight and sometimes obnoxious Dukes go all ga ga over the Bluestockings It s so much fun to watch them fall, almost as much as those incorrigible Rakes snickers Apart from JQ s newest in the Smythe Smiths, Duke of Midnight was another of my most anticipated in 2013 and I m happy to report that it lived up to my expectations and this has nothing to do with the fact I m [...]

      I m finished, but I m still kind of thinking about how to rate this The heroine, she gets all the stars And as Melody said, the nickname annoyed me The herohim, I don t know what to give him He s obsessed, but with his own legacy He s uncompromising on that He s also upfront about that, and kind of a selfish asshole, and TBH, I kind of like myself a selfish asshole He could be needlessly cruel, and unexpectedly demonstrative He was definitely flawed, and Istillcan t tell if I love or hate him.I [...]

      Absolutely five stars Maximus Batten is Hoyt s hottest hero yet, and he meets his match, in ways than one, in Artemis Greaves I don t have time to write a long review, but I wouldn t know how to anyway See my status updates for some great quotes My only complaint I would have enjoyed seeing a bit of Maximus and Artemis as a publicly recognized couple at the end But that s just me.And Ms Hoyt leaves us with a hell of a teaser in the epilogue Will her next hero be Asa Makepeace Or Apollo Greave [...]

      Beautiful and brilliant This is now my favorite of the Maiden Lane series But I have a feeling I m going to have several favorites by the time I finish them all.The Duke of Wakefield is everything I hoped for in the brooding man we ve seen so far Even And I absolutely adore Artemis She s my favorite kind of heroine intelligent, compassionate, genuine, and bold.Recommended to anyone who loves historical romance Hoyt has quickly become my favorite HR author with her ability to interweave the dark [...]

      Maximus Batten is such a lusty Duke One thing I love about this series is that I meet the characters in previous books, cannot imagine them as romantic heroes, and then bam it happens and it s wonderful and believable The author has a real talent for making you see emotions, which totally changes the perspective and that, in turn, changes everything else I m loving this series Apollo is next

      This is a review of the audiobook Lovely to visit Maiden Lane again, and to have it so wonderfully narrated by Claudia Harris She does a great job on providing different voices for all the various characters, male or female, young or old, smart of dimwitted, guilty or innocent or somewhere in between I was surprised to see some of the negative reviews of this one perhaps they needed to listen to the audio, instead You may remember Maximus Batten, the Duke of Wakefield, is Hero s Notorious Pleasu [...]

      4 stars Historical RomanceI ve loved all the Maiden Lane books, but this was my least favorite of the series Something about the romance between Maximus and Artemis fell a bit flat for me, but I enjoyed other aspects of the story Although it s not my favorite, Ms Hoyt still delivered another thrilling, addictive, steamy read I soooo hope she gives us Apollo s story Begs and rubs greedy hands

      4.5 Stars Ms Hoyt is truly talented as she continues with her Maiden Lane series I really liked Artemis, but Maximus came off as a spoiled boy at times Having said that though, I really enjoyed the book and so hoping that she is going to continue the series We have Apollo, Phoebe, Asa and others that need their HEA LOVE this series
