Waiting on Wednesday: Darling Beast by Elizabeth Hoyt

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine which spotlights eagerly anticipated upcoming releases!

I absolutely love Elizabeth Hoyt's Maiden Lane series - it's one of my top historical romance series (keeping Julia Quinn's Bridgertons and Lisa Kleypas's Wallflowers company, among others) and I'm always eager for a new story. Plus, with the way things were left for Apollo in Duke of Midnight, it's no wonder I'm excited to read Darling Beast.

Book Description (from Elizabeth Hoyt's website):

Falsely accused of murder and mute from a near-fatal beating, Apollo Greaves, Viscount Kilbourne has escaped from Bedlam. With the Crown’s soldiers at his heels, he finds refuge in the ruins of a pleasure garden, toiling as a simple gardener. But when a vivacious young woman moves in, he’s quickly driven to distraction . . .

London’s premier actress, Lily Stump, is down on her luck when she’s forced to move into a scorched theater with her maid and small son. But she and her tiny family aren’t the only inhabitants—a silent, hulking beast of a man also calls the charred ruins home. Yet when she catches him reading her plays, Lily realizes there’s more to this man than meets the eye.

Though a scorching passion draws them together, Apollo knows that Lily is keeping secrets. When his past catches up with him, he’s forced to make a choice: his love for Lily…or the explosive truth that will set him free.
