A confirmed wallflower, Lady Aubrey Langston didn’t have high hopes for the new season. After a masquerade was announced, a modiste promised Aubrey that she would add some magic to her gown, enough to have men eating out of the palm of her hand. Little did Aubrey know that she would fall for the Duke of Wathersby, her best friend’s almost fiancé. With a shared history of tepid friendship, Aubrey struggles to trust the man who so completely stole her heart.
Bradford, the Duke of Wathersby, wanted to find a bride, and quickly. Preferably one that didn’t drive him mad. Frustrated with the social scene, he longs escape to the country. At least he did until he met the beyond comparable masquerade woman. Driven with a force he had never felt, he wants to make her his forever.
While Aubrey tries to reconcile her fears, an outside force is working to tear them apart. As another woman plots against them, Bradford must do everything in his power to convince Aubrey that she is the woman he wants. Will Aubrey be able to overcome her fears and be able to trust the man she loves, or will their relationship only be another masquerade secret?
