The Marquess's Masquerade

By Daphne du Bois

Romance, Historical fiction | Paperback, eBook


'The Marquess's Masquerade' is a traditional Regency romance in the style of Georgette Heyer... Then, he did a terrible thing and smiled at her. That was the moment she knew she was in the biggest trouble of her life… Miss Constance Lindon is the quiet younger sister of the fashionable Countess of Winbourne. Like any young lady, she can’t wait for her first Season, but not for the usual reasons. At long last, her work is going to be displayed at the Royal Academy Art Exhibition, and for Con, it's the most important thing in the world. She may even make a name for herself as a serious portraitist, if only people would stop talking about the rakish painter Lord Athelcroft long enough to notice her! The Marquess of Athelcroft has problems of his own - he has to find a quick way to side-step his mother's ceaseless matchmaking before it is too late. Athelcroft has no intention of exchanging the freedom of an accomplished bonvivant for a wife. When Con unexpectedly loses her place at the exhibition and the dowager marchioness threatens her son with a visit, there’s only one thing left to do: strike a deal to fool everyone with a sham engagement. There’s only one rule – no falling in love. As they embark on a ridiculous plan to make an exhibition of themselves in front of fashionable London, Con and Athelcroft soon discover that love has a way of sneaking up on you when you're not paying attention. Will matchmaking mamas and well-meaning friends get in the way of a match most scandalous and a love most true?

Daphne has always had a passion for literature and history and one day it occurred to her: what better way to use her English Literature degree than to write about Regency romps and romance? She hasn't looked back since. Admittedly, her addiction to all things Jane Austen from a very young age had probably somewhat informed her choice of subject matter... Daphne has stacks of notebooks full of stories that still need to be written, which she insists on bringing with her when she moves around the world (she's done this a lot!). She likes her books full of romance, adventure, witty repartee and a dash of silly humour. When Daphne isn't writing, she can be found painting, picnicking, reading and listening to all sorts of exciting music. Follow her on Twitter @MsDaphneduBois
