Isabelle is content being a maid, and will do anything for her lady, even accompany her to a masquerade ball. Lady Theodosia needs extra support and encouragement on this night, for tomorrow she will meet the man her parents have pledged her to.
Isabelle has never had occasion to attend such an event, and is at first ill at ease. But meeting an enchanting young man during the course of the evening makes her wish for a life she can never have. Thinking she will never see him again, she returns his flirtation and even reveals her face. Imagine her shock when he shows up the next morning, announcing his claim on Lady Thedosia.
Isabelle does all she can to avoid Lord Adrian Wingave, but then he not only sees her, he recognizes her. To make matters worse, Isabelle fears her feelings are not one-sided.
Torn between duty and desire, Isabelle hopes for something more this Christmas.
This book was captivating from beginning to end from the relationship between Isabelle and Lady Theodosia to the growing love story between Isabells and Lord Adrian Wingrave. Which is why I gave it 5 stars out of 5 and also why I will recommend this book to other peolpe,.ol
The descriptions of scenes and Characters that Nicole gave not only made me feel like I was part of the story but that I new the places and characters intimately.
From the moment that Isabelle met Lord Adrian Wingrave at the Masquerade Ball and fell in love with him I felt for her as I have been in a similar situation (although not with some one that wasn’t from my class).
