Masquerade


A collaboration with Lisa Worrall and Patricia Logan, due out on 4th February 2012.

Cover art by Reese Dante.

The Layered Mask
Threatened by his father with disinheritance, Lord Edwin Nash is sent to London for one season to find a wife. In London, Nash discovers he is the lamb, the sacrifice of the society matrons, to be shackled to one of the girls by the end of the season.

At a masquerade ball, Nash hides in a study to avoid the ladies vying for his attention. He is discovered by Lord Thomas Downe, the Duke of Lynwood, the handsome stranger that Nash had met the day before. Nash is horrified when Thomas calmly tells him that he knows the secret that Nash had hidden for years and that he sees through the mask that Edwin presents to the rest of the world.

As Nash shares a secret dance and kiss, he slowly relaxes in Downe’s company.
While Nash plays the dutiful lamb to society, Downe introduces Nash to other men like himself, and he realises he is not alone. Then his father demands that Nash return, engaged to be married, and Nash realises his time with Downe is coming to an end.
