Praise for Kristi Ann Hunter's A Noble Masquerade
"Debut author Hunter pens a fantastic Regency romance."--RT Book Reviews
"If you're looking for an engaging Regency romance to sweep you away for a few hours, this is the book for you!"-- USAToday.com's Happy Ever After blog
"This is a lively and entertaining romp through Regency London--and is great fun."--Jane Austen's Regency World
Lady Georgina Hawthorne has always known she must marry well. After years of tirelessly planning every detail of her debut season, she is poised to be a smashing success and have her choice of eligible gentlemen.
With money and powerful business connections but no title, Colin McCrae is invited everywhere but accepted nowhere. He intends to marry someday, but when he does it will not be to a shallow woman like Lady Georgina, whose only concerns appear to be status and appearance.
But beneath her flawless exterior, Georgina's social aspirations stem from a shameful secret she is desperately trying to keep hidden--and that Colin is too close to discovering. Drawn to each other despite their mutual intent to avoid association, is the realization of their dreams worth the sacrifices they'll be forced to make?
"This whirlwind Regency romance offers spiritual depth and fascinating characters. A not-to-be-missed sequel."--CBA Christian Market
"Hunter's second Hawthorne House novel is dramatically entertaining."--RT Book Reviews
"Hunter's nicely nuanced, realistically flawed characters and the book's emotionally compelling plot work brilliantly together to create a soul-satisfying romance that will not only please fans of faith-based fiction but any reader who values impeccably crafted love stories."--Booklist

SPOILER ALERT: Felt like a little anticlimactic to end the book in the marriage bed with a bible...(LOL, do people really do that?) Maybe I've been a Christian too long, but would've been nice to throw a few more kisses in here and there. Otherwise, the author has a good writing style and I hope she continues.
Georgina wasn't my favorite character in the past books and I wondered how long it would take for me to warm up to her.
Honestly, I liked her on the first page. Getting to see who she really is, under the façade, you find out there is a good heart - a little bit blinded with desperation and lots of insecurities, but that still has potential to fight for good. I thought she was a really well developed character and, even though I do not agree with her decisions, it was possible to understand why she did what she did.
And Colin was the perfect match for Georgina! Brave enough to confront and comfort her.
The beginning of this book overlaps with the first book. Personally it didn't bother me one bit, specially considering one the most entertaining scenes were during this part of the book.
