From New York Times bestselling author Elizabeth Hoyt comes a delightful Maiden Lane novella that begins once upon a moonlit night---and ends wickedly, wonderfully ever after . . .
Hippolyta Royle is running for her life. Pursued by hounds on a cold rainy night, the heiress flags down a passing carriage and throws herself at the mercy of the coach's occupant. Whoever this handsome traveler may be, he is her only hope to escape a terrible fate. But should he agree to escort her to safety, he's in for much more than he bargained for . . .
At first Matthew Mortimer doesn't believe Hippolyta's story, that she's a fabulously wealthy heiress who's been kidnapped. He assumes she's a beggar, an actress, or worse. But once his new travel companion washes the mud from her surprisingly lovely face, and they share a breathtaking kiss, there is no turning back . . .

Karen’s Review

I didn’t want Once Upon a Moonlit Night novella to end. I have been waiting with baited breath for  Hippolyta story, and Hoyt pulled out all the stops in this brilliantly written novella.  Hoyt gave me a sweet and HILARIOUS romance in true Maiden Lane form. Plus she didn’t skimp of the rich story of Hippolyta and William.

Hoyt’s writing and character development in her newest novella of the Maiden Lane series is utterly captivating and kept me spellbound through the entire story of Hippolyta Royle, the richest of England’s heiresses and the cartographer Matthew Mortimer.  Hoyt spun a rich tale of mistaken identity and true love that rivals any of her previous Maiden Lane stories.  Hoyt has proven time and again that she not only can keep her long running series fresh, but can craft each story with skill that keeps her readers enthralled until the end.  It amazes me that Ms. Hoyt writing talent just keeps getting better and better, this is remarkable as she was already a fabulous writer; but truly this novella shows reader’s that she can craft full rich story in a limited word count format. She also gives her reader’s the depth and breath of marvelous character development in the same story.  Bravo Ms. Hoyt and thank you for a wonderful treat in Hippolyta and William story.
