The Man Behind the Mask is by far the best romance I have
read yet in 2004. This modern day Beauty and the Beast theme will
have you shedding tears of joy as these two deserving people battle
all the obstacles that are trying to block their destiny. The words
are so beautifully written, they will haunt your thoughts long after
you finish the last enduring page. Very highly recommended.
