the slightly plump daughter of two very outgoing college
professor parents. She is a librarian by trade and a curious
woman by nature. One thing she is very curious about is some
of the sexual positions and actions that she has read about.
But, she has never been able to let her inhibitions go to try
any of them. This changes when her roommate gets tickets to
the highly secret and infamous Sexquerade Ball. With a
costume, a mask and a color coded card you can leave all of
your inhibitions at the door and conduct an anonymous affair.
At the ball, she is attracted and sought after by Mac, she
calls herself Scarlet and has is able to try a number of
things she wants to. When Mac asks her to call him so they
can get together again she vows to think about it.
stunned to find out that he is the person that is supervising
the job she is doing cataloguing his uncles library. It is
even funnier when he doesn’t recognize her. She finds herself
living a double life, Scarlet at night, and Sophie during the
day. She only wishes that Sophie was good enough for Mac.
Sophie has been down this road before and knows that when Mac
figures out Scarlet and Sophie are the same he will not only
be mad but will drop her as she is not the size three
socialite that will be needed for his lifestyle. Can Mac
convince her differently?
Masquerade is a story reminiscent of the masked balls
I have read about in historical romances with the added twist
of a little gratuitous sex. I loved how Sophie was able to
live out her fantasies without the normal insecurities of the
man she liked knowing her secret side. What made this tale so
special was the fact that they did know each other, but Sophie
is the only one who really understands all that is going on
for quite a while. The author made the story come to life in
my mind, and I thoroughly loved the fact that the heroine was
not a little size three woman. Ms. Black can write one hot
sex scene, and added to the fact the story had a well written
plot and a number of humorous situations and you have one of
my September Recommended Reads. Masquerade is
one that I think most will like.
