We’re less than a month away from the June 26th release date of Thief of Shadows and already it’s gotten some great reviews:
Fans of the Maiden Lane series who have been anxiously awaiting Winter Makepeace’s story will be more than satisfied with Hoyt’s innovative, emotional, sensual and even humorous installment. Hoyt’s beautiful blending of the essential elements of a fairy tale into a stunning love story enhances this delicious ‘keeper.’
–Kathe Robins, RT Bookreviews
Suspense adds intensity as “lassie snatchers” kidnap orphans before the Ghost can save them, and the romance between the beautiful and quick-witted Isabel and the masked champion of the downtrodden propels this novel to the top of its genre.
In the fourth installment in the Maiden Lane series, all of Hoyt’s signature literary ingredients—wickedly clever dialogue, superbly nuanced characters, danger, and scorching sexual chemistry—click neatly into place to create a breathtakingly romantic love story.
–John Charles, Booklist
I’m making plans for RomCon 2012 in Denver, Colorado, June 22-24. I’ll be hosting the Team Romance Trivia Extravaganza—we’ll be playing in teams so that no one need feel too shy to join in and there will be a ton of prizes (perhaps literally.) It’s a great way to relax and meet new friends. I’ll also be attending all the various luncheons and dinners, a special Titanic themed tea party, and the multi-author book signing. And rumor has it that I may have a few coveted copies of Thief of Shadows to hand out several days ahead of the release date.
I do hope to see you there!
Conference season is upon us and I have a whole slew of conferences and appearances I’ll be making this spring and summer. Take a look at my Appearances list on the sidebar to the left to see if you can come meet me. Even if you don’t want to go to an entire conference, many will have multi-author booksignings open to the public for free or with a small fee. Hope to see you soon!
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
