In London's most glittering salons, she is lovely young widow Lady Elizabeth Barnes-Finchley. But by night, she rides as highwayman Blackerby Swift, seeking to ruin the man who took from her all she once loved. Then a pistol shot on a moonlit heath brings her face-to-face with a rival highwayman: Marcus Worthington, darkly handsome, lethally dangerous-and determined to stop her.
A fallen-from-grace earl with a nefarious reputation, Marcus wants vengeance against the man responsible for destroying his family. Elizabeth is a clever, daring, enchanting obstacle in his path. The two outlaws reluctantly agree to join forces against their mutual enemy, but their secret partnership puts both their lives in danger...and falling in love was never part of the plan.

Now there is one that I couldn't put down. And the ending was sort of spectacular. I read while on a treadmill - and this genre is easy to read and stop we needed. Midnight Raider kept me on the treadmill longer than needed. :)
Charming and romantic! 4.5 stars I have read Shelly Thacker's books and find them so captivating! Midnight Raider is slightly different, but I liked it very much! I loved her characters Elizabeth and Marcus! The story kept me interested until the end, it's fast paced, filed with action and romance. I recommend Midnight Raider, her 2nd story in the Escape with a Scoundrel series. Historical readers will love Elizabeth as fierce and smart heroine! I'm looking forward to reading Ms. Thacker's next book!
