Enchanting short romance!

I received a free copy of this audio book in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.

This was a fun, light and clean regency romance. Lady Theodosia is an eligible young lady on the eve of being introduced to her intended, picked by her parents years ago. She takes one last night of innocent fun at a masked ball and brings her trusted maid Isabelle along as her companion. The fact that she is a maid won't be known since they dress her in her mistress clothes and she will wear a mask.

Isabelle is nervous and feels out of place until she meets a charming masked man whom she is able to speak to easily. They share one dance and some conversation till her lady leaves and Isabelle goes home with her heart full of a man who will haunt her dreams.
Such dreams all come crashing down when she meets her mistresses intend the next day, the self same Lord Adrian Wingave whom she recognizes by his voice. From here on out broken hearts and mishap ensue in the attempt of true love finding it's way.

This story was, as a novella, short but complete. You get to know the characters quickly but intimately making the magic of love ring true. This was helped along by narrator Melanie Fraser who brings each character to life with tone and inflection that makes it easy to tell who is speaking. There were many conflicting emotions throughout the story and Ms. Fraser embodied them all for each character. You could hear the love, longing and hopefulness in each voice. Sigh. A lovely read designed to leave the reader satisfied to which I can definitely attest!

A light fairy tale

Masked Love is like a fairy tale - for kids or early teens. It reminds me of Barbara Cartland, just without the Dickens and Shakespeare.

As a very grown up adult, I missed a lot more to this story. I missed some drama and tragedy for it to work out in the end. The Ugly Duckling also went through a lot before his happily-ever-after.

This book is as light and sweet as it can ever be and is wishful-thinking story about falling in love with someone you can't really have. And if I would expect a light fairy tale, I liked it.

Melanie Fraser narrates in a very poetic way, which fits this story perfectly.
