Our July 2012 Romance of the Month is the fourth installment in Elizabeth Hoyt's sizzling Maiden Lane series, Thief of Darkness. Writes romance columnist Christie Ridgway, "Scorching love scenes, a hero and heroine with deep wells of emotion and a delightful twist at the end make this a memorable, remarkable romance."

Hoyt chatted with BookPage about sexy scenes and bad habits.

Describe your book in one sentence.
A man who hides his true emotions in shadows needs the love of a strong woman to bring him into the light.

Where do you write?
Everywhere. My office, coffee shops, the library, bed, planes, motel rooms . . .

If you weren't a writer, what would you do?
Nothing. I have no other marketable skills.

What are the sexiest scenes to write?
Um . . . the sex scenes? ;-)

What is your favorite character you've ever written?
Jasper, the hero of my fifth book, To Seduce a Sinner. He was something of a clown, which is a bit hard to pull off in a romance hero.

What is one bad habit you have no intention of breaking?
Coffee.

What are you working on next?
Right now I’m writing Duke of Midnight, which will be out November 2013.
