You might think that I would throw my hands up in horror at the faux marriage device used here, but I thoroughly enjoyed the idea — and the interpretation of it. Apr 25, Drianne rated it it was ok Shelves: The point of view changes arbitrarily from person to person and the prose choices jump from modern to antiquated. I was much appreciative of the subtle way these subtleties were outlined. Usually Masqerade don’t care for historical romance. There were three or so very graphic sex scenes, which I enjoyed.
After a brief, half-the-book span of confusion and who the fuck knows, it eventually pulls perseohone with a conclusion: I have to say that the second half spoiled some of my enjoyment of the first half.

The language is nicely done – just one instance of ‘anyways’ for ‘anyway’ struck me as incongruous, otherwise there was little unforgiveable.
The Magic of His Touch. I enjoyed the elaborate descriptions of clothing, food, and interior decorations. But can Marche and Valentine fool London society while dealing with an accusation of murder and the distracting fascination between them?
Sweet, hot, but mostly frothy entertainment. The part devoted to skullduggery and pursuit is just a little silly, what with the pirates, and the hookers-with-hearts-of-gold, and the coincidences, and the villain who turns out to be behind practically every dirty doing in London You’ve successfully reported this review.
The witty repartee was great fun.

It’s like the author couldn’t decide what kind of book this was–tense murder mystery, super sappy bodice-ripper romance, madcap comedy caper, action-adventure story, gay erotica, or legal drama, and went with all of the above with very mixed results.
The characters especially some secondary characters were likable, but they had nothing new about their personalities – everything has been created and described earlier by other authors. Masquerave got her name from her father, a keen student of mythology, and her love of books from her librarian mother.
Well it is a sweet historical story with no real truth to the timeframe except the utterly dry writing and bland, boring plot. Often the sex scenes would be one long paragraph with no breaks until a sentence or two of dialogue and then back to one long paragraph.
Furthermore the story uses the antics of one villain, known early on in the story, to set up problem after problem for the happy couple.
It was funny, it had adventure and romance, it had everything.
