Once upon a Moonlit Night by Elizabeth Hoyt
Publisher: Forever (July 2016)
Series: Maiden Lane, 10.5
Genre: Historical

Blurb:

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.

Why?

I love the pink dress. I also like how they used a lime green for the font and edge, it makes the cover pop. Plus, I can't wait for this story. Seriously, the last we heard about Lady Hippolyta was her harrowing escape into the dark night.

Foolproof Love by Katee Robert (Review)

I actually finished a Foolproof Love a couple weeks ago, but with the move and trying to navigate the wifi I currently have (which is not the best). Anyway, I had a fun time reading Foolproof Love. Come on it's a fake relationship to prove to Jules ex-boyfriend she has moved on, which she has, but the douche didn't get the memo. However, Adam and Jules have a combustable chemistry. Jules knows that the relationship is temporary, because Adam has one foot out the door.

Oh my goodness, Jules is so adorable. She's practically the town spinster with her coffee shop with cats. Yes, she has crazy cat lady starter kit. At the same time she has bright sunny disposition that draws people to her. I love that about her. Adam is described as catnip to women. The sexy bull rider is trying to figure out his life while helping Jules out.

So much fun, these two stir up scandal in Devil's Falls. Katee introduces us to her new fun sexy read. You definitely find steam as you turn the pages of Foolproof Love, and fall in love with these two characters. A solid read with your heated scenes. Plus, you meet some of characters that I can't wait to read. I totally can't wait for Quinn and Aubry's book, because of this interaction this story:
"Tell me, sweet cheeks, did it hurt when you fell from heaven?"
"Nope, but I scraped my knees when I crawled up from hell."
"Witty. I like that. Maybe you and me should go get a drink sometime."
"Sorry, cowboy, but judging from the assets you're far too proud of displaying"--she waved at his crotch area--"I've had better. Not interested."
Oh my gosh, this is sounds so promising on there story. Anyway, fun read. If you love fake relationships that turn real, you will have fun with Foolproof Love.

Love Thy Enemy by Katie Reus (Review)

I must say that I liked Love Thy Enemy by Katie Reus. You don't necessary need to read the previous story to follow what is going on. The beginning sort of ties in with parts of the previous book, but then takes off in it's own direction. Basically, Dominique Castle hates Viktor Ivanov, because of something his father has done. Eventually the reason comes out, Viktor feels bad about the situation, and tries to make amends. While that is going on there is a secondary love story going between his brother and their assistant, It didn't necessary add to the story, but it was nice to see him to find happiness. I don't know if there was enough story to make its own story, so it was nice to add to Love Thy Enemy.

Overall, Love Thy Enemy was a good story. Most of the story didn't focus around Red Stone Security, but mainly Viktor has his associates, and how they operate. Eventually, Red Stone guys are called into action. Who knows we might see more Viktor guys. Dominique didn't know how to handle Viktor's kindness, because she lumped him in the same category as his father. Of course, she had to eat crow.

Harper Collins Spotlight + Review: The Girl from the Savoy by Hazel Gaynor

THE GIRL FROM THE SAVOY
A Novel
By Hazel Gaynor
William Morrow Paparbacks
May 31, 2016

About the Book

Presenting a dazzling new historical novel … The Girl From The Savoy is as sparkling as champagne and as thrilling as the era itself.

‘Sometimes life gives you cotton stockings. Sometimes it gives you a Chanel gown …’

Dolly Lane is a dreamer; a downtrodden maid who longs to dance on the London stage, but her life has been fractured by the Great War. Memories of the soldier she loved, of secret shame and profound loss, by turns pull her back and spur her on to make a better life.

When she finds employment as a chambermaid at London’s grandest hotel, The Savoy, Dolly takes a step closer to the glittering lives of the Bright Young Things who thrive on champagne, jazz and rebellion. Right now, she must exist on the fringes of power, wealth and glamor—she must remain invisible and unimportant.

But her fortunes take an unexpected turn when she responds to a struggling songwriter’s advertisement for a ‘muse’ and finds herself thrust into London’s exhilarating theatre scene and into the lives of celebrated actress, Loretta May, and her brother, Perry. Loretta and Perry may have the life Dolly aspires to, but they too are searching for something.

Now, at the precipice of the life she has and the one she longs for, the girl from The Savoy must make difficult choices: between two men; between two classes, between everything she knows and everything she dreams of. A brighter future is tantalizingly close—but can a girl like Dolly ever truly leave her past behind?
