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.
