Scandalous Desires

Elizabeth Hoyt. Grand Central, $7.99 mass market (400p) ISBN 978-0-446-55893-8
Hoyt’s third Maiden Lane novel (after February 2011’s Notorious Pleasures) is historical romance at its best. In 18th-century London, widow Silence Hollingbrook helps her brother run the Home for Unfortunate Infants and Foundling Children. Silence has bonded with young Mary Darling, the illegitimate daughter of notorious pirate Mickey O’Connor. When Mick’s enemies threaten Mary, he takes her back into his home; Silence, knowing her reputation has already been tarnished by her previous association with Mick, insists on accompanying the child. Hoyt slowly reveals the man behind the pirate, one who buried his ability to love so he could rise above the slums of St. Giles. Silence and Mick share their deepest secrets, creating a mutual trust that is tested as a mysterious enemy threatens them both. Series fans will be enthralled, while new readers will find this emotionally charged installment stands very well alone. (Nov.)
