As a longtime fan of Jo Beverley I look forward to her rule-bending risk-taking romance novels. Adultery is often a tough sell to fans of the genre, but in Beverley's deft hands, the adultery is not only understandable, but both hero and heroine are made to suffer for an arrangement that becomes a love match. The wonderful hero, Brand Malloren, is very different than his siblings. If this is your first Malloren novel, don't worry, you do not need to have read the others to enjoy this one. But I'm betting you'll want to know more, especially about the intriguing Marquess of Rothgar, Brand's oldest brother. One of Jo Beverley's strengths is her heroines who are reliably feisty and capable. Rosamunde is no different. Scarred from an accident during adolescence and married to a much older man, you can't help but forgive her for falling in love with Brand, the man she needs to father her child for the sake of others. Jo puts a lot of obstacles in Brand and Rosa's path, which makes their ending all the sweeter.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and finished it in one day! "Rosie" is a mature and honest character, and a pleasant alternative to the immature and spoiled brats that so often prattle and tantrum their way throughout historical romances. The love scenes are hot and realistic! This is my first Jo Beverley read, and I'm here looking for more!

Sir Digby Overton is having trouble impregnating his young 23 year old wife, Rosamunde. In order to prevent the title and home in Wenscote falling to a nephew, the Puritan Edward Overton, he instructs her to get pregnant by bedding some young buck. Rosamunde is hesitant, but agrees. Instead of finding someone at a masquerade, she happens upon a young man, lying unconscious in the road. She brings him back to nurse him to health, much to the dismay of her staff, who believes the young man must be notorious and cannot be trusted. Rosamunde ignores her staff, and sets him up in her own bedroom to take care of him. However, she doesn't want him to know who she is, and wears a mask in his presence.

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.

ISBN: 0-451-40847-0

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.

A bit of a change of pace from your usual English historical romance, with adultery not set up from childhood, and the betrayal not as sharp. The plot was well paced, and the characters were well written. I must say however that Malloren was a bit.. well a LOT too trusting in this situation. I found his brother's reaction much more believable and in fact much more of an interesting character. All in all, however, I enjoyed the book.
