Shunned by society, she retreats to her country estate. Having no children of her own, she finds joy in caring for children she's taken in from London's Foundling Hospital. But every night, she is haunted by the memory of the gallant stranger, whose seductive voice and gentle touch awakened desires she'd thought long dead.
Two years later, Sir Jeremy Fairhill still hungers for the lady from the masquerade. She felt like his match, more than his saintly deceased wife, more than any of the respectable ladies his friends urge him to marry. Failing to find her, he throws his energies into the cause of the Foundling Hospital, where he serves on the Board of Governors. Hearing that a notorious woman has some of the foundlings in her charge, he is impelled to investigate. He has no idea that she is the lady he seeks, but soon his sense of honor is at odds with his dangerous passion for the elusive, alluring Lady Dearing.

Great Love Story
"Lady Dearing's Masquerade" is a story about a long suffering love affair between two unlikely individuals; a lady shunned by the ton, with a tarnished reputation, and a man with the reputation of a saint. How the Lady fights to keep the troubled children from a Founding Home in her care, against those that would take them from her.
A good story, performed well by Elena Greene who does both men and women's voices equally well.

Setting: England, 1809 & 1811
This is the first time I have listened to Robin Rowan's work, and I was quite pleased. She did male voices especially well.
The plot is quite interesting, though it's a trope that's been done before. However, Elena Greene keeps it interesting with well-developed characters and plot devices. Both protagonists are likable, and three dimensional, with interesting back stories. The author uses activity to move the story along, not just telling what people thought or said. The central conflict centers on Lady Dearing and Sir Jeremy. But revolving around this is a host of problems, including distrust, prejudice, mistaken beliefs on both sides, and communication issues. The antagonists are appropriately creepy, icky, selfish, snotty, and other adjectives of people you just enjoy disliking.
This was definitely worth the credit.
