    A Myrt's Review Passion in Historical New YorkA Victorian roman

    A Myrt's Review

    Passion in Historical New YorkA Victorian romance set in New York with a murder mystery bringing the lead couple together. The biggest plus of the story is the strong chemistry between Christopher and Rebecca. They definitely create sparks as they struggle to solve a murder and stay alive. Christopher is a dashing sexy gentleman with a few class issues to get over and Rebecca is a lovely ingenue who is working as a maid to pay off her father's debts and who could use a huge helping of common sense. But together they fill the story with a passion that rises above any character flaws. It's a great romance between two characters who are the better for finding each other!

    A lovely romance, with secrets and thrills in store, Once Upon a

    A lovely romance, with secrets and thrills in store, Once Upon a Masquerade was a wonderful read. I really liked this book. It was a truly enjoyable read.

    Rebecca was a great heroine. She was strong, determined, and very loyal to those she loved. I really liked her. I thought she was a lovely character.

    Christoper was also wonderful. He was clever and sweet and very determined once he set his mind to something. He could be frustratingly stubborn at times, but it was never a big issue. Overall, I really liked him.

    The romance was good. Rebecca and Christopher were very sweet together. Even with all the obstacles in their way and both of their reluctance to admit to it, their feelings were always obvious. And, the attraction between them was there from the moment they met, with a lot of steaminess along the way. I thought they were perfect together.

    The plot was fast paced and I was hooked the entire way through. There were surprises along the way, and I never suspected who turned out to the be culprit behind all the chaos. I really enjoyed the story and the ending was lovely.

    Once Upon a Masquerade was a wonderful historical romance. I really liked this book  and I truly enjoyed reading it. Romance lovers, this is a book worth checking out.

    ONCE UPON A MASQUERADE by Tamara Hughes is an exciting Victorian

    ONCE UPON A MASQUERADE by Tamara Hughes is an exciting Victorian Historical Romance/Suspense. What a thrill ride!! Meet Rebecca Bailey, a housemaid in trouble and Christopher Black, shipping magnate. Fast paced! Filled with passion, danger, and romance. A most impressive debut for this author. Although, I do not condone lies, deceit, or disguise, I totally understand Rebecca and her need to keep her father safe. Christopher in looking for the killer of his best friend, which he thinks Rebecca may be, but his instincts tell him she is not. He feels she has a secret and his determined to find out what that secret is. Rebecca is posing as a heiress! Passion and love follows danger, mystery, suspense, secrets,betrayal and a real threat. Christopher is Rebecca's Prince Charming and Rebecca is Christopher's Cinderella. A great read and one I would recommend to anyone who enjoys historical romance, the Victorian era, and suspense. A great romp though Victorian England! Well done, Ms Hughes!! I look forward to your next story! Received for an honest review from the publisher and Net Galley.
