One night. That’s all Miss Penelope Ashurst wants away from the strict decorum of Regency society. Donning a mask and attending a forbidden masquerade, she meets the man of her dreams. Then, before she discovers his identity, she is kidnapped.
From their first encounter, his goddess in a golden mask stirs a deep and different longing within Ranulph, the Earl of Monfort. When she disappears, he vows he will find her no matter the cost.
Soon it’s a race against time, and the kidnappers are just the start. Penelope and Ranulf’s very lives are in jeopardy. Before the end, everything will be stripped away, and Penelope and Runulf will be more than just face to face. But this is true love, and nothing will stop it.

Sheltered and protected her father has a plan for her life and she has no say. Of course this is the basis for the story and the author takes this and is off to the races. This is a well written story of growing up to fast for the wrong reasons. Yes it's insta love but hey even insta love can be a good read and this author adds suspense and the thrill of the chase to it as well. Loved all of the action and really enjoyed the characters as well. This is a new to me author and I love all of the aspects of the story that were added to keep it moving and not just sex. I like this authors style and even though historical reads are really my thing I had no trouble jumping in and forgetting that it was a historical read (well until the horse, or lanterns, carriages and such were mentioned).
