    Book 1 in Ms. Kasey’s Regency Duet.  The sequel is A Difficult Disguise. This is still one of my all-time favorite books.  I can’t help but love the Beauty and the Beast/Phantom of the Opera theme and characters.  Christine Denham is on her way to London with her aunt for her first season when their coach gets overturned in a blizzard.  The nearest manor is Hawk’s Roost, where Vincent Mayhew, the Earl of Hawkhurst lives as a recluse.  Hawkhurst is living in guilt of what he believes he did to his Book 1 in Ms. Kasey’s Regency Duet.  The sequel is A Difficult Disguise.

Fletcher Belden is Arabella’s brother and the hero in A Difficult Disguise.

    In the beginning I thought this was going to be a beauty and the beast book, but a little ways in I realized it was going to be so much more. Christine and her aunt are stranded in a carriage accident in the country and are at the door of a mansion asking for help. Christine has been injured and the driver of their rented carriage is carrying her. Vincent (the earl) is not inclined to help them and tells his servant, Lazarus, to send them to the village.

Christine has been injured and the driver of their rented carriage is carrying her. Vincent (the earl) is not inclined to help them and tells his servant, Lazarus, to send them to the village. The aunt is outraged and in fear for her niece's health. She demands to see the earl. He comes out dressed in a hooded cloak and has words with the aunt then sees Christine and mistakes her for a child. He is outraged that Lazarus didn't tell him a child was involved. Poor Lazarus shows them to some bedrooms where the aunt puts Christine to bed. Turns out that theatre is disfigured and has lost the use of his left hand, and basically feels sorry for himself as well as punishing himself for what we don't find out till much later in the story. He discovers Christine is not a child, suffice it to say the story becomes interesting as they develop a romance but the earl sends her on to London to have her season and risk the chance of losing her. The ending could have been a little more developed but Ms Michaels does not lack in writing romance.

    It's all about how beautiful and how perfect the hero and and the heroin were. They formed the supposedly 'deep love' because of that. Nothing else.

    Moonlight Masquerade by Michelle Kasey is a fabulous historical romance with a Beauty and the Beast twist. Ms. Kasey has delivered a well-written book loaded with outstanding characters. Christine and her aunt are on their way to London for Christine to find a husband when they are stranded in a snowstorm. They're forced to take shelter at Hawk's Roost, the home of Vincent, Earl of Hawkhurst. Vincent and Christine's story is full of drama, humor and sizzle.

I enjoyed reading Moonlight Masquerade and look forward to reading more from Michelle Kasey in the future. Moonlight Masquerade is book 1 of the Regency Duet Series but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger. I voluntarily read a complimentary copy of this book that I received from Bookfunnel.

    I like the way Kasey Michaels writes, and I read Regency romances, so what's not to love? Nothing. I enjoyed this short book from start to finish. It might be a cliché, but it's entertaining none-the-less. Actually, for Regency romances, there aren't that many surprise plots. Authors are restrained by the culture, language, and strict rules society imposed. It can be difficult coming up with something totally new. RR are generally about the characters, not the plot.

    I can't make up my mind if I like this book or not. I've never been a fan of books where the two people fall desperately in love with each other right from the start. To me there is no substance to their relationship. That's what happened in this book, obviously. I also felt that it was rather melodramatic. I didn't hate it, I was entertained but felt the whole time that it was a bit much.

    Another great book by Kasey Michaels!! Vincent has hidden himself at his estate for over 4 years when all of asudden his peace is disturbed by a pounding knock on the door!! When the door is opened his life will change forever. This book is based on redemption, love and forgiveness!! It is a beautifully written story!!

    Much too flowery and slow paced. This book was definitely not up to standards of other books by this author. It was so boring for the first third I almost stopped reading it but after skipping a bit had to finish to answer the questions about what happened. The speech was much too flowery and the action was so slow.

    I've enjoyed a number of books by Kasey Michaels, but this early venture is not one of them. Melodramatic and sappy, with little character development or humor, I could barely finish it. Yes, it's a regency but having read hundreds of those over the years I can assure you there are better selections, many of them from the same author.

    A most entertaining and quick romantic read . I really enjoyed the humor of Christine’s Aunt throughout the whole story --- the mansion, secret hallways --- candles lighting the way! Fun read! Again, I've found a new wonderful author!

    Wow! Beauty & the beast...regency-style! I didn't realize until I began reading the book that it is actually a prequel to "A Difficult Disquise". Moonlight Masquerade should definitely be read first in order for the second book to be fully appreciated. Wow! Beauty & the beast...regency-style!

    Forced language, forced story. Very predictable. Did not like this at all. Amazing I finished it.

    It was a decent book, but the main male character exaggerates himself a lot and believes he is disfigured when in fact he has only a scar.

    I guess that I have outgrown regency romances. It was okay but I would rather have read something with a little more meat in it.

    A typical Regency. Light-hearted, some hint of Phantom of the Opera, a touch of Beauty and the Beast. I enjoyed it very much.
