By Elizabeth Hoyt
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
I have recently read the Duke of Sin and I absolutely wanted to know what happened to Hippolyta and the story does not disappoint! I like the length of the novella, I just flew through it and I would definitely recommend it to all readers of the Maiden Lane series and to anybody else wanting to read a quick story.
