A Noble Masquarade
A Noble Masquerade
Hawthorne House Book 1
Kristi Ann Hunter
Lady Miranda has spent her entire childhood being told how to properly act as a lady. She's now a proper young lady in her third season and is beginning to lose hope of ever finding a husband who will love her. As a young girl she began the practice of writing to a friend of her older brother, named Marsh. It would be highly improper for her to send them, so she uses the letter writing as a cathartic therapy and then hides them in a trunk. But one day the new valet accidentally mails one. What will Marsh think to be receiving a letter from a stranger. But to her horror he replies. And thus begins the most confusing months as Miranda tries to grasp the concept of actually sending letters to Marsh while falling in love with someone highly inappropriate.
I'm a huge fan of regency novels. And this one fit the bill perfectly. It has suspense, romance, proper conduct, and faith in God. The characters were entertaining and fit well with the genre. The plot moved quickly and I loved several of the secondary characters. It was a quick read and I was sad to reach the end. I will definitely be reading the next book in the series.
I received this book free of charge from Bethany House in exchange for my honest review.
