Matthew Cornwallis, Duke of Tyndale, once loved a woman, but she died in a tragic accident he felt responsible for. Since then, he’s been playing pretend that he isn’t broken inside, even as he’s seen as London’s most sought after bachelor. He decides to drown his sorrows at the notorious Donville Masquerade where he encounters an alluring stranger who he spends the night with.
Mrs. Isabel Hayes was married once to a man who did not inspire passion and she’s been curious ever since. She has no intention of taking a lover at the Donville Masquerade, but to watch the activities there, just as she has been for weeks. But once the masked stranger pursues her, she is swept away.
Soon Isabel recognizes her lover for who he really is and realizes a terrible truth. She is the cousin of the woman he once loved and lost, and her family blames him for what happened. Driven by the passion they’ve shared, but also repelled by the stories she’s heard, Isabel continues the affair, trying to find the truth. But once Matthew realizes her identity, will he pursue her for what they’ve built, or only because she reminds him of what he lost? And will he survive to share a life with her at all?
Oh my what a book, I cannot express how much I loved this book. I have been waiting ages to read this book, mainly because we finally find out what happened to Angelica and why Matthew is carrying so much guilt.
Mrs Isabel Hayes is by day living at her uncle's house, but at night she is visiting the Donville Masquerade, if you remember this is the club that is owned by Marcus Rivers, and it's here that Matthew and Isabel can attend the club without being recognised.
It was great to have Marcus back, but please don't expect to see Annabelle, because this book is set before Marcus and Annabelle meet.
If you have being reading this series, then you know it is a must read series.
I give this book 5/5 stars. The book is on pre-order at Amazon UK and is released on 22nd May.
I received this book from Netgalley in return for a honest review.
