Moonlight Masquerade by Ruth Axtell  a Sneak Peek on Reading List



Goodreads Summary:

Lady Celine Wexham seems the model British subject. French by birth but enjoying life in 1813 as a widowed English countess, she is in the unique position of being able to help those in need--or to spy for the notorious Napoleon Bonaparte. When Rees Phillips of the British Foreign Office is sent to pose as the countess's butler and discover where her true loyalties lie, he is confident he will uncover the truth. But the longer he is in her fashionable townhouse in London's West End, the more his staunch loyalty to the Crown begins to waver as he falls under Lady Wexham's spell. Will he find the proof he needs? And if she is a spy after all, will he do the right thing?



Sneak Peek:

He set the pole on a rack with all the others, the Scripture "be not unequally yoked with unbelievers" flirting through his mind. He had no idea what Lady Wexham's Spiritual beliefs were, but he had seen no evidence of her attending church while in London." p146







Initial Thoughts

I had this on my TBR list for a long long time, so I finally grabbed it on a trip to the library, and I have had to renew it twice... so for me that isn't the best sign.  While I am determined to get to the end of the book, simply because I want to figure out how these two get together, it's a slow story. But it has so far fulfilled all of the typical points of a Regency Romance book... so if you're a fan...
