    This is a short & sweet Christmas Regency romance novella. I

    This is a short & sweet Christmas Regency romance novella. It tells the story of Lady Theodosia and her servant, Isabelle, who accompanies her lady to a masked ball, where she meets a mysterious stranger. It's a super quick read that should keep you engaged the whole time. It moves too quickly for you to get bored!




    Now, I'm not a fan of instalove which was pretty prevalent here, but the friendship between Theodosia and Isabelle was enough to keep me reading. I do wish the relationship between Isabelle and her masked stranger had had more development, but that's the nature of the novella, I suppose. Sometimes Isabelle annoyed me with her conviction that she loved this guy and there were ways for this to work out nicely. But Isabelle's past was very fleshed out, which was quite enjoyable!




    There were a few little twists, which I won't put here (because spoilers!), that were quite pleasant and unexpected for such a short novella. And there were so many little details about Regency life that really made the setting come alive!

    I don't usually read historicals, but I'm so glad I had the chance to read Masked Love. I read this in just a few hours, as it's a short romance. Set in the Regency Era, I felt like I was reading about Jane Austen, Lizzy Bennett or Emma. If I read a historical, this is the time period I love! 




    The instant love is so heart-warming during those times. I wish it could always be that simple. Isabelle and Adrian meet at a Masquerade ball during the holiday season. What they both don't know is that Adrian is to be married to Isabelle's employer, Theodosia. Adrian doesn't know that Isabelle is just a maid. Yet, when they find out, it doesn't matter, because their love for each other far outweighs any social class perils. Adrian was always the gentlemen, not wanting to hurt Theodosia, but when he learns that Theodosia doesn't want to marry either, he's set on finding a solution to make every one happy. Centered around the holidays, Masked Love is a heart-warming, quick read with the joys of Christmas and love around every corner. Don't miss this read!

    What's better than a wedding at Christmas time?

    Isabelle is excited for her mistress, Lady Theodosia, and her upcoming marriage.
    But when Isabelle attends a masquerade ball and dances with a handsome stranger,
    suddenly Lady Theodosia's marriage plans are on shaky ground.

    Lord Adrian cannot forget the beauty he danced with at the masked ball, but knows he must,
    as he has a marriage contract to honor. Just as he thinks he can put the unknown woman
    behind him, he stumbles into her. Literally.

    Nicole Zoltack spins a wonderfully romantic tale of star-crossed lovers in this holiday release.
    You'll be turning pages to see if Adrian and Isabelle will get their happy-ever-after, or will Adrian
    be forced to honor a contract made when he was but a child. 

    *I received a free copy if this book in exchange for an honest review.*

    if
    you are looking for a sweet short Christmas romance, this novella is for you

    Isabelle is a servant. She works for a young woman and befriends her. The woman, Lady Theodosia is to be betrothed to a lord. She requests Isabelle to accompany her to a masquerade ball and reluctantly Isabelle agrees. Isabelle meets a man there and they fall in love with each other.
    When Lady Theodosia meets her betrothed, Adrian, for the first time he realizes that her servant, Isabelle, is the woman from the ball and that he can't be with anyone else but her.

    I really thought this book would be more exciting, more scandalous. It was a fast read and for the most part I did enjoy it, however I was a bit disappointed. I found that I really disliked Isabelle always feeling sorry for herself because she knew she couldn't have Lord Adrian. I disliked how Adrian thought he was such a catch for this poor servant and how he felt sorry for her because she had to watch him woo his betrothed.

    I am not a big fan of female characters who feel helpless and do nothing to help themselves. I think I would have rather enjoyed it more if she was being chased by Lord Adrian. Isabelle playing hard to get, instead of " Hey I am over here in a corner feeling sorry for myself, please find someone to take Lady Theodosia so that I might be able to have you". Throughout most of the book he only went to talk to her a few times. There was no chasing really just them reminding each other they can't be together.

    The overall book was nice. I did enjoy it for the most part. It was sweet and the ending was perfect. If you are looking for a sweet Christmas romance then this book is for you. It is a fast short read but it is enjoyable
