A lady of light

When one of the masked—and nude!—Lords spirits her away to his carriage, she shoots him, only to find she may have been a trifle hasty.

A duke in deepest darkness

Cynical, scarred, and brooding, Raphael de Chartres, the duke of Dyemore, has made it his personal mission to infiltrate the Lords of Chaos and destroy them. Rescuing Lady Jordan was never in his plans. But now with the Lords out to kill them both, he has but one choice: marry the lady in order to keep her safe.

Caught in a web of danger and desire

Much to Raphael’s irritation, Iris insists on being the sort of duchess who involves herself in his life—and bed. Soon he is drawn both to her quick wit and her fiery passion.

Is their love strong enough to withstand not only the Lords of Chaos but also Raphael’s own demons?

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Narrator Ashford McNab immediately brings the listener into the drama…Raphael has a dark past, and McNab has the listener feeling his pain and sympathizing with him. McNab brings to life the passion that ignites between Lady Iris and Raphael.” AudioFile
“A historical romance with pitch-black undertones…Passages of intrigue are charged with palpable suspense and danger, while the steamier bits crackle and singe…Though Duke of Desire dips too far into the darkness at times, the story in the end is still deeply satisfying.” Entertainment Weekly
“Duke of Desire…delivers the coup de gras to The Lords of Chaos. Far darker than many of Hoyt’s romances, Duke of Desire is emotionally powerful, and readers will be transfixed by this poignant tale of revenge and redemption. Not for the faint of heart since Hoyt tackles dark themes, fans of deeper stories and the series can’t miss this!” RT Book Reviews (4½ stars, Top Pick!)
