Overview

Annelisa Fielding has had the blessings of wealth her entire life, thanks to her industrialist father. However, there is one thing even he can't give her: a title. So he arranges a marriage between his daughter and the Earl of Swindon, Thornton Sutcliffe. As long as his future bride is a virgin, the Earl will tolerate the marrying down because in return for taking Annelisa as his wife, her father will pay off his debts. Everyone wins, as far as the men are concerned, but Annelisa wants more out of marriage than a title and is willing to wait. But time is running out. If she doesn't find some way out of the marriage and fast, in one month she'll become Lady Annelisa Sutcliffe.

The solution to her problem? Count Nikolai Shetkolov, a diplomat in the service of the Tsar and stationed in England. Single, powerful, and sexier than any man Annelisa has ever laid eyes on, Nikolai is the perfect choice to help a young lady lose the one thing her odious future husband prizes most. But Annelisa will have to watch out or she may get more than she bargained for with Nikolai.

Annelisa's father Andrew, has arranged for his daughter to marry an Earl named Thornton. Annelisa is disgusted with the idea as well as with Thornton; a man more than twice her age, broke and only wants to marry a virgin. Though her father means well, Annelisa is also upset that he only wants her to marry for a title and not love. With a scheme that involves Count Nikolai, Annelia's plan could backfire. ***THOUGHTS The moment the story began it dove right into the plot of the story and I love that. The author brought us another wonderful story that not only engaged you, but also gave us wonderful characters. Annelisa was very stubborn. Her family and a bit of her characteristics remind me of Lizzie from Pride & Prejudice, but only a tiny bit. However, in the end I still loved reading about her. Nikolai, what a Russian hunk, he had me at good afternoon Miss; he was so perfect for Annelisa. In addition, a good blackmail only heightens the storyline for me, a very good read from this trilogy. Storyline: GOOD Intimacy: GOOD Enjoyment: GOOD This was a wonderful end to a novella series. The series is The Victorian Erotic Trilogy. The series isn't connected by people but by the era. Titles Vampire Dreams /A sexy vampire who pleasures in dreams Love's Master /A sexual lover who is Dominant and found the perfect pupil Masquerade /A sexy Russian who makes blackmailing sexy ******************

Promised to a man who only wants her for her virginity, what is a girl to do? A virgin no more, that is Annelisa's goal as she gives herself to a man at the masquerade ball. All is well until her identity is discovered and then the real fun begins. A good read for 283 pages.

Oh Wow, LOVED this story! Strong, opinionated heroine, with a hero that knows exactly how to handle her and her shenanigans. The chemistry is off the charts, with love scenes that steam up my computer screen *fans face*. I hate reviews that give the story away, so please, take my suggestion, and indulge in this wonderful escape from reality. You won't be sorry! I'll be following Ms. Gabrielle Bisset with devotion. I hope to see many more works from her!!

It's official Gabrielle Bisset fans and fans-to-be--1878 London is so much more exciting than 2011 Nevada! Might I recommend you get yourself a copy of Masquerade and dive in to this book? I adore these characters; Annalisa is intelligent, willful and quick-witted, and Nikolai is sexy as sin, playful and romantic. Annalisa Fielding is a 25-year-old exceptionally educated woman whose marriage has been arranged for her, much to her dismay. Mr. Fielding has attained substantial wealth in his chemical business, but cannot provide his heirs with a prestigious title. Lord Sutcliffe possesses a title which puts him at a higher social status, but he is virtually penniless. Seems to be a win-win, right? Maybe for all involved excluding Annalisa! Why on earth would such a modern thinking woman put up with betrothal to a man double her age? Upon overhearing that her virginity is of utmost importance, a real deal breaker, she devises a plan. With an upcoming masquerade party - her father's Russian diplomatic friend, Nikolai Shetkolov - and a mask in hand, she sets out to lose her virginity. For such an educated woman, she certainly gets herself into quite a mess with her foolish scheming. BUT...Nikolai, well educated himself, is quite the match when it comes to scheming. If you have a few spare hours and a bag of Kit-Kats (or carrots for healthier people who will live 1.7 years longer than me), there's no reason why you shouldn't be reading Masquerade right now!
