Wednesday's Favorites: Masquerade by Joanna Taylor



Welcome to the Wednesday's Favorites post. In the Wednesday's Favorites post I will talk about a book I loved and that I think deserves a little more attention. I read popular books, but also many books that aren’t so popular (yet). In this post all sorts of books from all sorts of genre’s will have a chance to shine. Today’s Wednesday's Favorites is 'Masquerade' by Joanna Taylor, a book I read in August 2015.

About the Book:

1786: Regency London.

Everyone is hiding something.

But someone is hiding everything.

Lizzy Ward never meant to end up working the streets of Piccadilly. So when a mysterious noble pursues her, it seems her luck is changing. But though Lord Hays offers to grow Lizzy's fortunes, his price is unexpected. She must masquerade in the sumptuous gowns and social mask of a true lady.

With the stakes so high, love is out of the question. But as Lizzy navigates the fashion and faux-pas of the London elite, she finds her tough facade failing her. Lord Hayes wants to show her that nobility is more than skin deep. . . and as the connection between them grows, it's no longer certain who's wearing the mask. As the street-girl and the lord collide. Regency London is poised for scandal . . .

A love story of surpassing power and imagination, this is a stunning new British voice in Historical romance for fans of Eloisa James, Julia Quinn, Stephanie Laurens and Georgette Heyer.

Praise for 'Masquerade':


The setting is very authentic! Very historical, in terms of location, time period, treatment of women and women's rights, class differences, societal norms. There are so many historical aspects that Taylor captured very well!

Taylor kept me guessing right to the end as to  how the story would play out and I thought the final scenes were perfect. Fans of historical romance and authors such as Julia Quinn and Eloisa James should definitely check this out!

Basically if you are in the mood for a light, fun teasing read then this is the book for you.
This was an absolute joy to read and I highly recommend it to all you historical romance fans out there!

For those of you who couldn’t guess it, I completely loved this book. It was such a fun read and I really loved how it took place in Regency London. I could totally imagine all those pretty gowns and beautiful houses and mansions.
