Hoyt's new series, The Legend of the Four Soldiers, begins with destruction and ends with glorious love. She begins each chapter with a snippet of a legend that beautifully dovetails with the plot and creates a distinct love story that will
thrill readers.

Lady Emeline Gordon uses her place in society to launch young ladies into the ton, making her the ideal chaperone for colonial businessman Samuel Hartley's sister. Though wealthy and handsome, Samuel lacks the sophistication of a London gentleman. A scout for the British during the French and Indian War, he tried to save his men from an ambush.

He was there when Emeline's brother died and has come to London to find the man who betrayed his unit. Emeline is drawn to Samuel, longing for his strong embrace and heated kisses. Her attraction draws her into his hunt for the turncoat and an unfolding mystery. (Forever, May, 384 pp., $6.99)
