Summary

Summary

Widowed Silence Hollingbrook is impoverished, lovely, and kind-and nine months ago she made a horrible mistake. She went to a river pirate for help in saving her husband and in the process made a bargain that cost her her marriage. That night wounded her so terribly that she hides in the foundling home she helps run with her brother. Except now that same river pirate is back...and he's asking for her help. 

"Charming" Mickey O'Connor is the most ruthless river pirate in London. Devastatingly handsome and fearsomely intelligent, he clawed his way up through London's criminal underworld. Mickey has no use for tender emotions like compassion and love, and he sees people as pawns to be manipulated. And yet he's never been able to forget the naive captain's wife who came to him for help and spent one memorable night in his bed...talking. When his bastard baby girl was dumped in his lap—her mother having died—Mickey couldn't resist the Machiavellian urge to leave the baby on Silence's doorstep. The baby would be hidden from his enemies and he'd also bind Silence to him by her love for his daughter.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Series fans will be enthralled, while new readers will find this emotionally charged installment stands very well alone.”  Publishers Weekly
“With its lush sensuality, lusciously wrought prose, and luxuriously dark plot, Scandalous Desires, the latest exquisitely crafted addition to Hoyt’s Georgian-set Maiden Lane series, is a romance to treasure.”  Booklist
“This is the Maiden Lane story readers have been waiting for. Hoyt delivers her hallmark fairy tale within a romance and takes readers into the depths of the heart and soul of her characters. Pure magic flows from her pen, lifting readers’ spirits with joy.” RT Book Reviews (4½ stars, Top Pick!)
“Ashford MacNab’s crisp narration captures the story’s brisk pace and roguish pirate atmosphere, as well as the looming presence of the characters’ mysterious enemy. Silence’s pride and defiance of Mickey are revealed with a soft-spoken but confident voice. Her demeanor is contrasted with Mickey’s rough personality, conveyed by a loud, gruff voice that begins to moderate as Mickey falls for her. The complexities of the main characters are highlighted by MacNab’s compassionate interpretation of Mickey. An evocative performance.” AudioFile
