~ Under the Covers
This seals the deal. The Maiden Lane series is the top Historical Romance series to beat. Every book in this series has quickly become a new favorite. Not only does Elizabeth Hoyt keep things fresh with each new premise, but the characters continue to be intriguing and unique. This is especially true for the hero and heroine of DUKE OF PLEASURE.
If you’ve read the previous book in this series then you’re already familiar with both. Hugh Fitzroy, the Duke of Kyle, made quite the cameo in the last book and so did Alf. We know Alf as a cocky and clever boy, but he’s not a boy at all, as many of you already know. He’s a girl just pretending to be a guy. As if that wasn’t already exciting enough, she’s also the Ghost of St. Giles by night. See what I mean when I say this series is the one to beat? Just the premise alone is fascinating! When you factor in Hoyt’s amazing writing, it’s really something special. There’s no other series that as fun and exciting on the market right now and if you’re not already reading this series, then you’re really missing out. I loved the Maiden Lane series in the beginning, but as the books continue to get better, this series is quickly becoming my new favorite. I read this book so fast, I almost regretted devouring it so quickly because of the book hangover I had after.
DUKE OF PLEASURE is the eleventh book in the Maiden Lane series and I would say that you should read the stories from the beginning. Quite a lot has happened already and while you can probably still enjoy the romance, the threads lining the books together will be underappreciated if you haven’t read them all. Also, I want to say that I’m claiming Hugh for my harem, as I have all the heroes in this series. One simply cannot read a Hoyt novel and walk away without falling in love.

What did you think of our review?
Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below!
When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.
When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
