“Try to keep that sharp tongue under control. I’ve no mind to bleed to death tonight.” When he drew back, her chin was tilted so high in the air he was surprised she didn’t overtip herself. “I’d no idea your skin was so tender.” – Once Upon a Moonlit Night by Elizabeth Hoyt
I received an advance reader copy of this Maiden Lane series novella by Elizabeth Hoyt from NetGalley. I adore the Maiden Lane series, and the characters that this author creates are just fantastic. The wit, depth, and facets of all the unique personalities in the series are an absolute delight. I burned through this story in a few hours. Sure, I could have gotten out of bed and found some breakfast, but then how would I find out what happened to Hippolyta and Matthew? There are a few cameos from earlier tales in the series, but nothing to offset the reading experience. I have the attention span and memory of a goldfish, but I remember enjoying the Maiden Lane stories and Once Upon a Moonlit Night was no exception. Fans of historical romance will definitely want to check this one out – give the series a try if you have yet to sample it, too!

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 . . .
