Publisher's Summary

A sensual, erotic story with the rich texture of Regency romance with the spice of erotica.
Margaret Seymour is bored by the stifling constraints of society dictating her behavior as a debutante in search of a husband. Her prospects are promising by the standards of London society, yet, not one of them causes her heart to flutter, or her head to fill with scintillating, forbidden fantasies. Those feelings are reserved for Camden Rycroft, Duke of Avonleah - a man who isn't even aware of her existence.
While attending a scandalous Vauxhall Gardens masquerade, Margaret finds herself in the duke's arms. His promise of a night of pleasure is tempting, but is it worth it when Avonleah is a known rake notorious for his short attention span and avoidance of marriage?
Camden Rycroft is intrigued by the masked vixen he encounters in the Gardens. After one night with her leaves him hungry for more, his desire for her turns into a fiery obsession. Despite the scandal that could ensue from their affair, he finds himself unable to extract himself from a situation destined to end in pain. When faced with losing Margaret to a potential husband, will he rise to the occasion, or risk living without her?

Hot and juicy but badly narrated.

Graphic sex, foul language..... probably a good read but not an enjoyable listen. Not a narrator I'll buy again. And although this isn't the end of the scale (erotica novel?) I usually choose in a book, I did appreciate what it could be with a decent narrator.

An enthralling story

What made the experience of listening to Masquerade the most enjoyable?

I had read the book before so it was interesting to hear someone else's interpretation of the voices and storyline.Also, the fact that I could do other things as well as listen to the story, e.g. Knitting.

What did you like best about this story?

I liked the fact that Margaret ( Maggie)had a rebellious streak, even though she appeared as the dutiful daughter when with her parents. I enjoyed the encounters with Camden and Maggie and oh yes! they were hot! There was some amusing banter between Camden and his elderly aunt. I also liked the fact that there was doubt as to what Camden would do in the end.

Have you listened to any of Beatrice Pendergast’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No as this was the first audiobook that I have listened to.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Unfortunately I wasn't able to listen to it in one sitting but that didn't detract from the enjoyment of the book. It was over 4 hours long and it took me 3 sitting to complete it.

Any additional comments?

I was surprised to not to hear an English voice as this was set in England. This took a while for me to get my head around. Maybe it's because I'm British? Having said that Beatrice performed a very good reading.
I received a free copy for an honest review .
