Seven More Days...

…Until the release of Scandalous Desires! I recently saw a super wonderful review for Scandalous Desires from blogger Katie Babs which begins:

“Elizabeth Hoyt has written the must read historical romance of the year. Scandalous Desires (Maiden Lane #3) is beyond perfect from beginning to end.”

Read the rest of the fabulous review here.

I’ve spiffed up the website for the release of Scandalous Desires. Here’s a few things you might want to check out:

You can download the fairy tale from Scandalous Desires, Clever John, along with an extended excerpt of the book. Just click on the purple Clever John cover. Clever John is also available FREE for Kindle, Nook, Sony, and as an iBook.

You can also download my free Insider’s Guide to Elizabeth Hoyt’s Maiden Lane Series booklet.

I have a new Book of the Month for October.

And, finally, I’m running not one, but two fun contests this month: my regular website contest and a special contest with the fabulous Kristan Higgins: sign up for both our newsletters for a chance to win a Bad Boy Survival Kit full of fun!



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!

Now on to some website updates:

Be sure to enter my website contest–I’m giving away all four of the Legend of the Four Soldiers series in audio book PLUS a Barnes and Noble gift card for $100!

You can now download for FREE my booklet, The Insider’s Guide to Elizabeth Hoyt’s Maiden Lane series.

I have a new Book of the Month up–and its only the author’s second book!

And finally, I hope you’ll take a moment to check out the Monty Python inspired book video for Scandalous Desires!


New Books in the Works!

I’m very pleased to announce that I’ve just signed a new contract with my publisher, Grand Central Publishing for three more books! They will be a continuation of the Maiden Lane series with characters I’ve been getting lots of reader mail about! ;-) The first book of the new contract will be released in summer 2012 and will feature Winter Makepeace and is tentatively titled Thief of Shadows. I hope you enjoy it!

Romance Writers of America’s conference is coming up at the end of June and with it the annual “Readers for Life” Literacy Autographing. This year it will be in New York City at the Marriott Marquis in Times Square, Tuesday, June 28th from 5:30-7:30 p.m. There will be over 500 authors signing their books and all proceeds will benefit literacy in New York.

Finally, I’ve donated three items to Brenda Novak’s Annual Auction for the Cure of Diabetes: Luncheon with moi in NYC, a signed set of all my books, and a signed advanced readers copy of my upcoming November release, Scandalous Desires.
