Thief of Shadows is out and it’s number 18 on the New York Times bestseller list! Thank you to everyone who made this possible by buying the book!
More lovely reviews have poured in for Thief of Shadows:
“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!”
— Adria, Breath of Life Reviews
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:

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!

Today is release day for Scandalous Desires and the book has received a lovely review from Night Owl Reviews:
“…Scandalous Desires was well worth the wait. Mickey is, in a word, delicious. He is the perfect bad boy! Silence is a wonderful heroine, perfect for Mickey. She stands up to him and makes it impossible for him to not fall for her. I can’t say anymore, you just have to read it and experience this marvelous love story first hand. If I could give higher than 5 stars I would, as Scandalous Desires is sublime!”
–Leslee, Night Owl Reviews

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)
