Masquerading the Marquess
By Anne Mallory
Calliope Minton loves nothing
better than to capture the nobility in her cartoons. She uses many
disguises to hide her true identity so that she will fit in at different
parties. Never has anyone rubbed her the wrong way as much as James
Trenton, The Marquess of Angleford, and making him look foolish
has become an obsession. Soon, she must find a new disguise, so
she has her friends help her find someone she can trust as she pretends
to be a mistress, Esmerelda.
She believes Stephen
is perfect to help her, although she finds out too late that he
is a good friend of her nemesis, James, who is determined to find
who is making fun of him in the papers. After meeting Stephen's
new mistress, Esmerelda, he knows she is the one he used to know
as Margaret. Every time he sees her he has feeling he can't describe.
When Stephen disappears,
James thinks the fair Esmeralda is the reason. Soon he learns that
she is in as much danger as the missing Stephen. Now the tale gets
twisted into murder and mayhem as James and Calliope search for
Stephen and tries to discover what secrets people want to keep buried.
