Books by Elizabeth Hoyt

A-
Duke of Midnight

This book is the sixth in Elizabeth Hoyt’s Maiden Lane series and in my opinion the strongest to date in this 18th-century storyline. Of course, I must confess I have not read Winter’s story yet, and if that novel is better than Duke of Midnight then it would deserve a solid A because it was ver ...

Thief of Shadows

Thief of Shadows is the fourth book in Ms. Hoyt’s Maiden Lane series. Three of the books, including this one, feature siblings who run the Home for Unfortunate Infants and Foundling Children in the London slum of St. Giles. The hero of this book, Winter Makepeace, is by day a grave, severe man sob ...

Notorious Pleasures

Elizabeth Hoyt is a master -- her writing is almost unrivaled, and she’s one of my personal favorites. I was delighted when I got the opportunity to review Notorious Pleasures, the second installment in her Maiden Lane series. Not surprisingly, it was good-- very, very good. But unfortunately, it ...

Wicked Intentions

Wicked Intentions is the first book in Hoyt’s new Maiden Lane series. Despite the author’s success, this is only the second book of hers I’ve read. And, while it will probably make me unpopular, I have to say that I wasn’t overly impressed with this one. It was good – certainly above avera ...

To Desire a Devil

Elizabeth Hoyt has earned seven DIKs at AAR. Sometimes it sucks to buck the trend, but you do what you must. And in this particular case, this book is really, really good. But it isn't great. After his regiment was massacred in North America and following seven years of Indian c ...

To Seduce a Sinner

The second novel in Elizabeth Hoyt's Legend of the Four Soldiers series is even better than the first. To Seduce a Sinner is funny and heartbreaking, sexy and poignant. A hung-over Jasper Renshaw, Viscount Vale, has just been left at the altar by his fiancée when he is offered a replacement - ...

To Taste Temptation

I’m not certain I can put into words how To Taste Temptation, the first installation of Elizabeth Hoyt's new Legend of the Four Soldiers series made me feel. I’ve never read the author before and I don’t know how this book stands up next to the others she’s written. I only know that I love ...

The Serpent Prince

If you’ve ever seen the classic movie Tom Jones you know just how much fun bawdy innuendo can be. I was reminded of that film and it’s irrepressible joie de vivre as I read The Serpent Prince and, considering my extreme fondness for Tom Jones (not to even mention the incredible deliciousness tha ...

The Leopard Prince

Last year Elizabeth Hoyt made a splash with her debut novel The Raven Prince. It earned DIK status here at AAR and gained more than one honor on our 11th Annual Reader Poll. The Leopard Prince is her second offering, loosely tied to The Raven Prince, but in no way a sequel. Sophomore books are trick ...

The Raven Prince

The Raven Prince is classic romance. It is the type of book that reminds me why I love this genre. Elizabeth Hoyt’s debut novel brings emotion, sensuality, and wit to the forefront, blending it all together with a deft hand. The characters are not new to us: A nobleman with a heart-hardening past ...
