Lord Brand Malloren has little to no memory as to where he is, nor how he came to be lying in the road. He realises the people taking care of him aren't being completely honest and are using false names, but he is grateful for their help. When the masked Rosamund aka Mrs Gillsett asks him to repay her kindness with a 'tupping,' Brand agrees. Once turns into a few times and Brand finds himself falling for her. He wants to know more about her and asks that she runs away with him. Rosamunde is tempted, but remembers her obligations to her husband and cannot comply.
Rosamunde's friend, the Duchess of Arradale, discovers her predicament and informs Rosamunde of who Brand really is (the brother of a powerful marquess). It's more reason for Rosamunde to say goodbye and forget about him. Brand is drugged and left in a barn, with a message sent to the Marquess of Rothgar, who just happens to be staying in the inn Rosamunde is staying in. More fake names are used and Rosamunde hopes Rothgar won't persue her.Read more ›
In 1762 Wenscote, her elderly spouse pleads with Rosamunde Overton to find some stud to impregnate her for the good of their people since he is incapable of doing so. He worries that if no heir is born to them, the estate goes to his nephew. The lad would simply hand the property over to his rigid religious order. Taking to heart her spouse's desires, Rosamunde sets a plan in motion. However, on her way home from a failed attempt to select a suitable hunk at a masquerade party, Rosamunde finds an unconscious person. Rosamunde decides he will sire her child.
An ailing Lord Brand Malloran agrees to assist his unknown angel, who wears a mask while they are together. They make love and both find their hearts captured by the other. However, he now wants more, but she fears to give into his demands. As she flees back to the safety of her home, he begins to search for the love of a lifetime.
Jo Beverly is clearly not a secret amidst romance readers and her latest tale, THE SECRETS OF THE NIGHT, typifies why her books are so loved. The story line never stops hooking readers from start to finish. However, as is usual with a Ms. Beverly fiction, the characters run the show. The lead protagonists are a witty duo struggling for something that seems just outside their grasps. The support cast adds much period piece authenticity as they move the plot to its stirring conclusion. Ms. Beverly continues the magic of the Mallorans with this delightful romp.
