This is a sequel to Moonlight Masquerade, which I read last year and loved! However, this book stands alone, it just contains a few ties to the previous book.
Jessamine is very young, but has already experienced heartbreak when the man she thought loved her, decided he was a better fit for another woman. Even though she has no intentions of falling in love, Jessamine and her close friend Megan are enjoying a “season” in London. They are hoping to meet eligible young men and fall in love, but at first it seems hopeless! They find themselves despairing at the stuffy, proper atmosphere, which causes a first meeting with Lancelot Marfleet.
Lancelot, from a very wealthy and prominent family grates on Jessamine’s nerves. However, she soon finds he’s not like all the other formal English gentlemen but refuses to admit she likes him.
As the story unwinds, there are complications. Jessamine goes against her better judgment and finds herself in a very immoral and dangerous situation. Of course, Lancelot comes to her rescue, but can he ever love her after learning what she’s done?
I received the book free from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
