Her Cinderella Moment
Sue Green just wanted one night to be the pretty one. But a few glasses of champagne and one wild disguise later, she’s in some serious trouble. Who knew the devastatingly handsome face of Lord Holden Ellis would get in the way of her foot?  And how exactly did all that high-kick dancing start in the first place? At least she blamed it all on her new persona–Suzanna. So Society’s most eligible bachelor will never find out the truth.

All Holden wants is the truth. Who was that vixen who seduced him so thoroughly, then disappeared? The only one who seems to have any answers about Suzanna is Miss Sue Green. She’s promised to help him find his mystery woman, but in truth she’s not being all that helpful. And in truth, the more time Holden spends with Sue–witty, pretty, and disarmingly honest–the more he realizes he may have found exactly what he’s been looking for all along…


Barnes & Nobles:




DESPERATELY SEEKING SUZANNA by Elizabeth Michels is a delightful  Regency Historical Romance set in 1816 England.  #2 in the “Tricks of the Ton” series, but can be read as a stand alone. See, ” Must Love Dukes”.

Meet, Sue Green, aka, Suzanna, and Lord Holden Ellis and follow them on their Cinderella/Prince Charming moment. You will not be sorry you did.

Fast paced from beginning to end.  Ms. Michels draws the reader into the story and holds them there to every last sentence. Desperately Seeking Suzanna is a mixture of passion, love, and wit with a bit of fun mixed into the tale.

Of course,you have a few secrets, seduction, with a romp through Regency England. Ms. Michels is a talented author and I look forward to her next grand adventure into the TRICKS OF THE TON series. A most enjoyable read! Received for an honest review.
