More lovely reviews have poured in for Thief of Shadows:

4 Stars
“Once you have finished reading this book, you will fully understand why Elizabeth Hoyt is considered to be one of today’s best writers of Regency Romances! BRAVA!”
— Detra Fitch, Huntress Reviews


“Ms. Hoyt makes me laugh, makes me cry, and makes me fall in love with each couple. There is pure delight on each and every page! What more can you ask from an author? Thief of Shadows is another 5 star read from the stellar Elizabeth Hoyt!”
— Leslee from Night Owl Reviews


I feel like I’ve been waiting for this book for forever! After what felt like a lifetime, I have read, finished and loved Thief of Shadows!”

My lovely website designer, Vibeke Courtney from Dreamforge Media has put together an absolutely fabulous addition to my website: all new Maiden Lane pages. At the top of the navigation bar on my website, you can find the Maiden Lane tab. Click it and it opens a whole bunch of stuff, including:

  • and an Interactive Map of Georgian London

I hope that you’ll enjoy exploring the new Maiden Lane pages!

Finally, quite a few of my books are on sale this month:

  • And The Ice Princess is on sale in ebook (because it only comes in ebook) for $0.99.


Website Updates!

I made a batch of applesauce yesterday from some lovely Ozark Gold apples. This is a autumn tradition in the Hoyt Household–picking apples at the local orchard, and making applesauce and apple pie. Mr. Hoyt does love the autumn! ;-)

I have some updates to the website!

First up, my novella, The Ice Princess has been released in ebook form! The heroine of The Ice Princess is Coral Smythe, who you may remember from The Raven Prince where she played a small part as the madam of Aphrodite’s Grotto. You can find an excerpt from The Raven Prince that features Coral as well as the first chapter excerpt of The Ice Princess and links to buy the ebook on The Ice Princess page.

While The Ice Princess is available only in ebook form at the moment, we do hope to publish it in a paper anthology soon!

I’ve posted the first scene excerpt of Notorious Pleasures, my February 2011 book featuring Lady Hero.

I have a new Book of the Month–Lila DiPasqua’s Awakened by a Kiss.

And finally, reader Rane Aria sent me some lovely original fan art for Wicked Intentions.


Happy New Year!

A very Happy New Year to you and yours! I hope the new year will bring peace, prosperity, and plenty of reading pleasures.

I’m beginning a new book with the new year–Notorious Pleasures is the second book in the Maiden Lane series and involves the daughter of a duke who has found the perfect man to marry…and then falls for his less than perfect brother. We don’t have a release date for Notorious Pleasures yet (sometime in early 2011 most probably) but the first book in the series, Wicked Intentions, will be out this year in August.

And where exactly is the Wicked Intentions page?! Well, I’m waiting on the book cover to put it up. Hopefully by February!

Finally, the final chapter–and epilogue–of my free novella, The Ice Princess is up!

I hope you enjoy.
