Kurzbeschreibung

Henry Fenna has just accepted the title Baron of Wilomar for services to the crown. He has proven his valor on the battlefields of Spain and earned a position working for a spymaster known as the Silver Beaver. Henry must recover from a wounded leg, integrate into the ton, reconcile himself with his family (who he has not seen in ten years), learn to sleep without night terrors, and prepare for his mission to India. But when he comes to London for the Season of 1814 and sees Miss Jane Burnel at Lady Rauley’s annual masquerade, he realizes he has more to worry about.

Miss Jane Burnel set her heart on an officer when her father went off to fight the French. Now in her fifth Season and with the war over, the officers she has waited patiently for can finally court her. With a handful of cavalry officers calling on her she cannot believe she is jealous of her younger sister, who is spending a great deal of time with the rather handsome Lord Fenna. After all, she wants an officer. But no one is who they seem in this masquerade, and Jane must find the courage to fight for the man she loves.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Not worth your time or money 13. Dezember 2013
Von Jean in Jersey - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I read all the great reviews of this book and bought it, as well as another of this author's books, for a trip. BIG MISTAKE. The idea for this story and the way it intertwines with others in the series is great, but it was poorly executed. There were so many long drawn out passages that say the same things over and over and over again. They were so incredibly tedious that I wound up skimming through many of them and actually began to skip whole pages. The hero and heroine were conceptually sound, but they agonized over things more than they actually interacted. They OBVIOUSLY didn't want to be in love, but apparently were -- or as "in love" as you can be when you have spent all of 30 minutes in each other's company. Where were the interactions that showed them together in such a way as you could believe they were falling in love? We heard a lot of other characters telling them they were meant to be or something, but how about showing us rather than telling us.

Then there were the misused words. After the heroine makes some comment, the hero says to the heroine something along the lines of "your brother said you were witty." The problem is, the comment wasn't witty. There was no humor to it at all. It might have been pithy, but it wasn't witty. Then later the heroine rehearses in his head something he is going to say to show the heroine he is "witty" but unfortunately there was nothing witty about what he planned to say. Perhaps the author doesn't know what "witty" means and, if she does, how about show us an interchange between them that was ACTUALLY witty instead of just telling us they are supposed to be witty, but never actually seeing either of them being witty. Also, "compliment" is not the same as "complement."

It is also really distracting to me when an author uses "I" when she/he should have used "me." This author does that fairly frequently. It is not that hard a rule to learn and there is a ton of information about the rule for free on the internet. Perhaps because so many people on t.v. and in real life don't seem to know when to use which word maybe I can't blame the author, but where was the editing?

I don't know if all the other reviews were the author's family and friends or if it is really a case of "to each his own", but as far as I am concerned, this was really not worth the money. I even started the other one hoping it would be different, but it was more of the same. I do wish the author could tighten up and improve her writing (perhaps a good editor would help) though because I really did like the idea behind this series and was looking forward to reading all of the intertwining stories.

Others praised the historic detail. I can't remember any of that right now, the problems with the book were too distracting, but if that is the case then it is a further reason to be disappointed the execution of the story wasn't better because I really do appreciate an author who gets the historical details correct.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Masquerade Volume 1 4. Januar 2013
Von techguy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
"Firstly", let me say Romance Novels aren't my cup of tea. My wife smiled and snickered all the way through the book, which sparked my interest in reading the book myself. I found it to be a very enjoyable read, focusing on the historical fiction, and getting caught up in the match-making and romance of the characters. I found myself laughing, and even had an occasional tear. With "The Masquerade" series running 6 books or more, I can picture this book making a great Hallmark TV series! I am fascinated with history, and the author is very descriptive with her writing. You can feel yourself being taken back in time during the read, and as for me, the book appeared to be very historically accurate. You can see a knowledge of history and research in the authors writing. I've just started the second novel in the series "A Mask of Black Satin", and since my wife just received the third novel today "A Tartan Mask", I know I'll be reading it soon as well.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Why Guys will like The Masquerade series 5. April 2013
Von Mary Hushour - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Review by Larry: It is obvious that Ashley Stormes offers more than a simple romance novel in her writing. The Masquerade is so accurate in its historical details, I found myself immersed in an enlightening game of "google search" just to expand my knowledge of British aristocracy and the events of the time. I could not help but learn as I enjoyed the book. As well, Ashley offers enough masculine input to allow a male reader to revel in war, liquor, espionage, and chasing (or sometimes running away from) women while he covertly enjoys a great romance! As a man who enjoys a romantic story as long as the men are behaving like men, this book is an excellent read, and I'm ready to tackle the rest of the series! ps: I agree with Lord Fenna, Parmisan ice cream... not a good choice!.. "Google" it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Masquerade 17. September 2012
Von Theresa I. Patterson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Ashley Stormes is a young first time author that has an over abundance of talent that will make her a well known author soon. Her descriptive writing skills make the reader feel as if they have been transported back in time to England in the early 1800's with a novel of romance and some mystery. Her second novel in the series promises to be an exciting adventure of love, danger, mystery and intrigue and I can't wait for it to be completed. She reminds me of a young Catherine Coulter.

5.0 von 5 Sternen My review of Ashley Stormes' "The Masquerade (Volume 1) 14. September 2012
Von leolady - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I have just finished reading Ashley Stormes' novel, The Masquerade (Volume 1). This is the first of her Masquerade series. I enjoy reading regency romance novels very much and this is no exception. I received this book on Monday and finished reading it Thursday evening. It is a captivating novel. It holds the reader's interest and keeps you wondering if things will end as you hope they will. I can't wait to read book two of this series, "A Mask of Black Satin".
