Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Margaret McGaffey Fisk is a born storyteller whose tales often cross genres and worlds to bring the events and characters to life. She currently writes romance, science fiction, and fantasy but will go wherever the story takes her.

A daughter of diplomats, her early years were filled with many cultures, both very much alive and long turned to dust, and people who both pondered the great thoughts and were grand pranksters. Whether from wild adventures into the desert to climb sand mountains, poking around little known archaeological sites, or visiting bazaars and inner cities, she came out of that time with a love of culture and an all too sharp awareness of culture clash.

She lives in a Nevada desertscape with her husband, and a rotating collection of cats and sons. When not exercising her creative muscles, she has been known to tame the relatives of beasts in the wild--feral cats. In a different time, you'd find her before a bonfire or with a mug of ale and a lute spinning tales for all who are in earshot. Now, though, you can read her explorations of loyalty, love, and conflict wherever you might be.

More About the Author

Margaret McGaffey Fisk was born overseas during her father's first full post with the US State Department. She grew up in the diplomatic and ex - pat community, a place of mixed cultures, philosophical discussions, and grand pranksters. Between wild car rides into the desert to climb sand mountains, the discovery of little known archeological sites, and visits to various bazaars and inner cities, she developed a love of culture, language, and the point where these cross over and often clash.

Add a theatrical father, largely British teachers, and a return to the United States that was the epitome of culture clash, and Margaret was left with story fodder crossing the genres of science fiction, fantasy, and romance, with a sprinkling of real-world stories as well.

Join her in wandering foreign lands, stepping foot on new planets, or exploring the inner workings of the heart along with many other journeys of the imagination that offer entertainment mixed in with a thought or two to ponder.

When I read this book's description, I had to purchase it. I don't typically read this genre or era; however, the description was compelling, and the book did not disappoint. Even if you're not sure if this is your kind of book, if you read the description and feel called to read more, do so. You won't regret it.

Reminiscent of Georgette Heyer's classic regency tales, Beneath the Mask offers us the pampered willful younger daughter of an impoverished earl with a rare passion for dance. When her father fires her dancing master, telling her it's time to grow up and become the lady she was bred to be, Daphne begins a life of subterfuge as the masked dancer.

She catches the eye of Jasper Pendleton, a man of money but no significant title, which his mother has decided he will gain by marriage. He has no desire to be shackled to a society flower, yet he can't help but think of the advantages, like getting his mother silenced while continuing his current lifestyle. Past mistresses aside, Jasper is determined to unveil the masked dancer and make her his own. She has other plans.

This tale has many twists and turns that ramp up the tension in believable ways. A regency romance to remember.

Very human characters in an intricate, exciting story. It was both true to the times and true universally. I felt connection to the characters.

In the world of romance novels finding a well written refreshing author is a bit difficult. Having cut my reading teeth on Harlequin Romance, I have become a bit jaded in the romance novel department. I find it difficult to find a new story that isn't just the same tired plot and devises trotted out in new wrappings. I picked this story up not expecting much more really than a fun light read, and was pleasantly surprised to be sucked into the story and taken for a wild romping good time!

I'm not generally a Regency fan, but the characters in this come to life for you.
Our heroine, Daphne, starts out as the fairly standard sheltered rich girl, but soon stretches her wings and learns both how sheltered her life really has been, and that life out there isn't as easy as you might think it is! She matures noticeably in the pages of the book.
Her gallant love Jasper, who starts out not being quite so gallant, has somewhat the opposite problem. He feels he knows/has does everything and is really just hanging about because it's expected of him. He learns that he's not quite as all knowing as he thinks he is.
It's a romance so of course there is a happy ending, but the twists and turns that take you there are definitely worth the read and the bevy of other characters are each richly presented and develop recognizable personalities despite some only showing up for a few pages here and there.

Definitely worth the read.
