2016 RITA Award Winner for Inspirational Romance
"Debut author Hunter pens a fantastic Regency romance. The characters are endearing and their motivations are not always what they might seem on the surface. This air of mystery adds depth to the tale. The romance portrayed is top notch and will cause readers to sigh with delight in the end."--RT Book Reviews Top Pick
Lady Miranda Hawthorne acts every inch the lady, but inside she longs to be bold and carefree. 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, the Duke of Marshington. Since she's never actually met the man, she has no intention of ever sending the letters and is mortified when her brother's mysterious new valet, Marlow, mistakenly mails one of the letters to the unsuspecting duke.
Shockingly, this breach of etiquette results in a reply from the duke that soon leads to a lively correspondence. Insecurity about her previous lack of suitors soon becomes confusion as Miranda finds herself equally intrigued by Marlow, a man she has come to depend upon but whose behavior grows more suspicious by the day. As the secret goings-on at her family's estate come to light, one thing is certain: Miranda's heart is far from all that's at risk for the Hawthornes and those they love.

Then, I started reading it and…guess what? I could not stop reading it! It was so good!
Miranda was an absolutely awesome main character. Marlow was even cooler! So were all of the other side characters. The only one who I didn’t like as much was Georgiana. (Even so, I am still excited to read the book about her, An Elegant Facade. Also, I am currently reading An Uncommon Courtship, the one about Trent.) I really liked Trent and Griffith. There was one scene with them that I just loved! It seemed like something my brothers would do! I laughed so hard!
I love the cover! It is amazing! Everything about it is great! I am definitely giving it 5 stars!
Also, you can guess what rating I am going to give the book! 5 stars to you, A Noble Masquerade! This is one of my favorite books, and I would recommend this book to anyone and everyone who likes an adventure and romance story!
To say that the main characters had chemistry would be a major understatement! These two individuals are from the same side of the tracks, but one of them doesn't know it. Lead astray by lies and deception, their love was almost broken apart at the seams.
Luckily, God's will and the pureness of their faith in each other helped them to find away to mend the burnt bridges between them. From punches thrown, to mistaken identities, and all the lady-like lessons a woman could need; this novel will keep you reading/listening until the very end!
This is written by a skilled author who shows, not preaches her story. Carefully planned events unfold in this romance between Miranda (an almost spinster) and Ryland, a mysterious duke. Enough twists, intrigue, thwarts, and clean romance to keep one reading to the last page. Likeable, realistic, developed main characters who don't have so many hang ups that you get sick of the same issue keeping them apart. Side characters who have important roles; but book stays with main story and does not divert to side stories for unnecessary length. No dysfunctional lives or issues, just excellent fun all around!
Can't wait to read another by Kristi Ann Hunter.
For the price and my time, I do not want to be disappointed. Who thinks this book was so awesome??????
