Happy release day to Once Upon a Moonlit Night by Elizabeth Hoyt, a novella in the Maiden Lane series of historical romance. I am a big fan of this series and eagerly read each installment when they are released. This is a short novella that will hopefully tide us over until the next book in the series is released. This story focuses on Hippolyta Royle, a character who has shown up in the series before and was recently the victim of a failed kidnapping in Duke of Sin. If you were wondering what happened to Hippolyta after she escaped her kidnapper, read Once Upon a Moonlight and wonder no more!
About the Book
ONCE UPON A MOONLIT NIGHT by Elizabeth Hoyt (July 5, 2016; Forever Yours Ebook; A Maiden Lane Series Novella)
From New York Times bestselling author Elizabeth Hoyt comes a delightful Maiden Lane novella that begins once upon a moonlit night—and ends wickedly, wonderfully ever after . . .
Hippolyta Royle is running for her life. Pursued by hounds on a cold rainy night, the heiress flags down a passing carriage and throws herself at the mercy of the coach’s occupant. Whoever this handsome traveler may be, he is her only hope to escape a terrible fate. But should he agree to escort her to safety, he’s in for much more than he bargained for . . .
At first Matthew Mortimer doesn’t believe Hippolyta’s story, that she’s a fabulously wealthy heiress who’s been kidnapped. He assumes she’s a beggar, an actress, or worse. But once his new travel companion washes the mud from her surprisingly lovely face, and they share a breathtaking kiss, there is no turning back . . .
