Product Description

Lady Miranda Hawthorne acts every inch the lady, but inside she longs to be bold and carefree. Entering her fourth Season and approaching spinsterhood in the eyes of society, she pours her innermost feelings out not in a diary but in letters to her brother's old school friend, a duke--with no intention of ever sending these private thoughts to a man she's heard stories about but never met. Meanwhile, she also finds herself intrigued by Marlow, her brother's new valet, and although she may wish to break free of the strictures that bind her, falling in love with a servant is more of a rebellion than she planned.

When Marlow accidentally discovers and mails one of the letters to her unwitting confidant, Miranda is beyond mortified. And even more shocked when the duke returns her note with one of his own that initiates a courtship-by-mail. Insecurity about her lack of suitors shifts into confusion at her growing feelings for two men--one she's never met but whose words deeply resonate with her heart, and one she has come to depend on but whose behavior is more and more suspicious. When it becomes apparent state secrets are at risk and Marlow is right in the thick of the conflict, one thing is certain: Miranda's heart is far from all that's at risk for the Hawthornes and those they love.

    This is Kristi Ann Hunters debut novel. She has really set a high bar for herself with this one. She does have a prequel novella out that is available in eBook only.

    The characters are incredibly well developed and easy to connect with. The variety of personalities that are included are very entertaining.

    Lady Miranda Hawthorne grew up with her mother constantly pulling her aside to give her lady lessons in proper conduct. She hated these little lectures because they constantly constrained her very nature and emotions. But they were needed to help her live in polite society. Throughout the book when she is struggling with wanting to act one way and knowing it is wrong she hears in her own mind her mothers voice and the lady lesson that applies. I found each of these tidbits very amusing.

    Interspersed through the book is a bit of mystery and intrigue. The book is set in 1812 England and they are currently at war with France. There isnt much actual talk about the war but it is a backdrop for the story and there is mention of it and how it affects those in high society. Some of the more quirky characters are connected with the danger and intrigue.

    I received a free copy of this book through The Book Clue Network in exchange for my honest opinion.

    A Noble Masquerade is an entertaining book. I totally enjoyed reading about the humor behind the characters and the trouble they could find themselves in. It is not the typical regency romance. This is the first book in the Hawthorne House series. I can not wait to read the next one!

    I received the book from the Book Club Network in exchange for my honest opinion.

    I loved this book. There were times when I got tired of Lady Miranda's tantrums, but I liked her for the most part. I liked her imagination and spunk. Ryland, the hero, was a complex character. When we (and Miranda) first meet him, he is Marlow, valet to her brother Griffith. Later we find out he is a spy on an undercover job and is really Griffith's longtime school chum, Marsh, otherwise known as the Duke of Marshington. Miranda has been writing letters (but not mailing them) to Marsh since she was 8 years old, as a way of expressing her feelings, so this causes some complications. Most of the story takes place in 1812, when there were quite a few expectations for ladies of high quality. Miranda despairs of her "lady lessons" given by her mother. The story is pretty fast paced, with kidnappings, masked balls, the spy plot, betrayal by relatives, and, of course, the romance between Miranda and Ryland. Quite a satisfactory tale that I recommend for all lovers of Regency romances.

    One of the main reasons I requested to review the book was because Kristi Ann Hunter is a new author and I wanted to see what she brought to her audience. The main female character, Lady Miranda, desired to break out of the societal constraints of her life, but kept that secret closely guarded until her brothers new valet sends one of her letters to Duke Marshington. The letters were Mirandas way of releasing her pent up feelings and desires were she to write them in a journal.

    Mirandas problem is that she is attracted to her brothers valet, but then she receives a response from the Duke that was never expected! There are Christian themes throughout the book, which I am glad to see in the novel as some publishers have not been publishing novels with any Christian themes even though they are clean. Readers will love the fast-paced action in the book and be entertained as they read how Miranda decides what to do with two men in her life.

    My knowledge of this era is very little, but the author does a great job of bringing humor to her first full length novel. If you desire to read the prequel, A Lady of Esteem, it is readily available as an ebook. I didnt read the prequel and enjoyed this first book in the Hawthorne series. I look forward to the next installment. The novel will make a great gift for the readers you know whether family or friends!

    'A Lady always pays attention to her guests, even when she finds them boring.' 'A Lady never gives her servants something to gossip about.' Even when her mother is not present, Lady Miranda can here her mother's Lady lessons. Miranda has done fairly well at obeying these lessons, all but one. 'A Lady never has correspondence with a gentleman who is not a close relative.' Miranda has been writing to Marsh, her brother's school chum for years, but she has never mailed any of them, so it shouldn't matter, right? But when her brother's new valet finds one of her letters, everything changes.

    A Noble Masquerade will keep you on the edge of your seat, and may cause you to miss sleep. Even after finishing the book, I find myself wondering what everybody is doing. The characters and plot was so plausible that it is easy to believe that they are continuing their lives long after the book was done.I look forward to the next Hawthorne House book.
