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 . . .


I have read only two other books in this series. I was seriously thinking about giving up on reading any more. I am here to say that Once Upon a Moonlit Night was the best story in this series. I am pretty sure that their are other readers out there that will say otherwise, but to me there is no doubt in my mind that once you read Once Upon a Moonlit Night you would agree with me.

The old age saying to start with basic are still true and the story of Matthew Mortimer and Hippolyta has put it to the test.

Hippolyta a Lady of high birth was kidnapped and force to escape. With dogs hot on her trail, she was force to throw herself at the mercy of Matthew Mortimer.

Of course when she tells Matthew who she was, he doesn’t believe her, but assist her any was.

Matthew and Hippolyta  story was a enjoyable story full of adventure, mystery and a epic love story for the ages.

It also sends out the message that not everyone cares about nationality, its all about the person, and what you have become.

Wicked Intentions (Maiden Lane Book 1)



Infamous for his wild, sensual needs, Lazarus Huntington, Lord Caire, is searching for a savage killer in St. Giles, London’s most notorious slum. Widowed Temperance Dews knows St. Giles like the back of her hand-she’s spent a lifetime caring for its inhabitants at the foundling home her family established. Now that home is at risk . . .


Caire makes a simple offer-in return for Temperance’s help navigating the perilous alleys of St. Giles, he will introduce her to London’s high society so that she can find a benefactor for the home. But Temperance may not be the innocent she seems, and what begins as cold calculation soon falls prey to a passion that neither can control-one that may well destroy them both.



My Review: After reading Duke of Sin by Elizabeth Hoyt, I went into reading this book with trepidation. However, that was for not, because I really enjoyed this book

 Wicked Intentions couldn’t have gotten any better. Lord Caire was on a mission. A mission that only one person could provide and that was Widow Temperance Dews. Someone was disemboweling women, and one of those victims was Lord Caire’s mistress.

 Temperance has a plight of her on, rent is do and caring for twenty-seven children cost money; money that she doesn’t have. But, when Lord Caire come along, she had a proposition for him. She would take him around St. Giles if he would make introduction so she can find a benefactor for the home.

 Wicked Intentions slow going in parts. But the twist at the end I never seen coming.

Duke of Sin (Maiden Lane #10)



Devastatingly handsome. Vain. Unscrupulous. Valentine Napier, the Duke of Montgomery, is the man London whispers about in boudoirs and back alleys. A notorious rake and blackmailer, Montgomery has returned from exile, intent on seeking revenge on those who have wronged him. But what he finds in his own bedroom may lay waste to all his plans.


Born a bastard, housekeeper Bridget Crumb is clever, bold, and fiercely loyal. When her aristocratic mother becomes the target of extortion, Bridget joins the Duke of Montgomery’s household to search for the incriminating evidence-and uncovers something far more dangerous.


Astonished by the deceptively prim-and surprisingly witty-domestic spy in his chambers, Montgomery is intrigued. And try as she might, Bridget can’t resist the slyly charming duke. Now as the two begin their treacherous game of cat and mouse, they soon realize that they both have secrets-and neither may be as nefarious-or as innocent-as they appear . . .



My Review: Duke of Sin by Elizabeth Hoyt was very slow I almost gave up on it. However, I am glad that I didn’t. Valentine “Val” Napier Duke of Montgomery was so miss understood it was so unbelievable. I too thought he was a degenerate until the story unfold to show it wasn’t the Duke but everyone else. Now poor Bridget her life was a mess from the time she was born. Her mother was being blackmailed by Val and to save her mother reputation she must go undercover as a housekeeper to retrieve the incriminating evidence.

Val and Bridget complimented each other so well, since both was broken. Val because of his past and Bridget because of how she was brought into the world. Duke of Sin will have you cheering by the end.
