Moonlight Masquerade (#01 in London Encounters Series)

Also Available In
Lady Celine Wexham seems the model British subject. French by birth but enjoying life in 1813 as a widowed English countess, she is in the unique position of being able to help those in need--or to spy for the notorious Napoleon Bonaparte. When Rees Phillips of the British Foreign Office is sent to pose as the countess's butler and discover where her true loyalties lie, he is confident he will uncover the truth. But the longer he is in her fashionable townhouse in London's West End, the more his staunch loyalty to the Crown begins to waver as he falls under Lady Wexham's spell. Will he find the proof he needs? And if she is a spy after all, will he do the right thing?

Ruth Axtell deftly creates a world where black and white burst into a confusion of colors and no one is who they seem. Readers will be hooked from the very first scene to the final page.

Great story
5 stars By Audrey, Apr 29 2013
I loved reading Moonlight masquerade. It had a slow start but very soon picked up speed. I was wondering right to the end if Rees and Celine will get together. Both characters endeared themselves to me and I found myself drawn into the conundrum of their situation, wondering how they will be able to overcome the circumstance that is keeping them apart. The way that the author wove the history of that time period into the story was very crafty in that it stimulated my love for history and had me wanting to know more, but not so much that I felt overwhelmed with facts. I am excited to see that there is a second book in the pipeline and will definitely be looking out for it.
