Scandalous Desires is number 26 on the New York Times paperback bestseller list, 31 on the ebook bestseller list, and number 80 on USA Today‘s bestseller list!!! Whew!

Here’s a quote from another super review:

“Scandalous Desires is a must read historical romance and my favorite book of 2011 so far. I’m confident it will remain so. I simply adore Ms. Hoyt’s books for her sensuous prose, multifaceted characters, and intense, well developed story lines. And she delivers every single time. It’s no wonder all of her books are on my keeper shelves. Do yourself a favor and pick up Scandalous Desires. Go on…you can thank me later. *g*”

–Andrea, The Romance Dish

Thank you to everyone who bought a copy of Scandalous Desires!


Woot! I just got my RT BookReviews magazine in the mail and was thrilled to see that Scandalous Desires got a 4 1/2 Stars Top Pick! review from RT reviewer, Kathe Robin:

“This is the Maiden Lane story readers have been waiting for. Hoyt delivers her hallmark fairy tale within a romance and takes readers into the depths of the heart and soul of her characters. Pure magic flows from her pen, lifting readers’ spirits with joy.”

Oh, dear, I’m blushing! ;-)

Remember, Scandalous Desires will be available for both ebook download and in stores on October 18th!

I just got the first review for Scandalous Desires today:

“With its lush sensuality, lusciously wrought prose, and luxuriously dark plot, Scandalous Desires, the latest exquisitely crafted addition to Hoyt’s Georgian-set Maiden Lane series, is a romance to treasure.” (Starred Review)
–John Charles, Booklist

I also have the third scene excerpt from Scandalous Desires up now (you’ll have to scroll through the first two to see it.)
