She cannot resist the man behind the mask...
As the illegitimate daughter of a Scottish earl, Lady Magdalen Keith is not one to partake in lavish balls or other frivolities. Yet at her father's urging, she agrees to dance with the battle-weary officers at this year's holiday masquerade. It's practically her civic duty! But when one such officer-whose dashing good looks cannot be disguised by a mere mask-sweeps her off her feet and into his arms, the innocent lass can't help herself. Her lips are his for the taking.
But will he betray his country for a kiss?
Navy lieutenant Aiden Murray has spent too many months at sea to be immune to the charms of this lovely beauty. Even after he returns to his ship, she lives in his dreams. But when he discovers Maddie's true identity-and learns that her father is accused of treason-will the brawny Scot risk his life to follow his heart?
Another masquerade...oh I love masquerade's. The rest of the story following the masquerade is very exciting, full of lots of secrets as well as intrigue. The author continues her The Lords of the Highlands Series with another well written book that will keep the reader enthralled till the last page.
From the beginning chapter where the author sets up the meeting between Navy lieutenant Aiden Murray and Lady Magdalen Keith the reader will have a wild rollercoaster ride as the plot continually evolves. Both characters are fully developed with the most unusual personalities that really caught my attention.
At one point the reader will wonder if there will ever be a resolution to this tricky situation but slowly they will see the light at the end of the tunnel and in the end the reader will be satisfied. For this reason I give it 4 stars.
Received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review.
