Dane Westbrooke never left a challenge unanswered. Born an English nobleman, the charming, influential earl abandoned the peerage to become a staunch Federalist and member of Alexander Hamilton’s inner circle. His relentless yearning for Jacqueline Holt threatened all reason, but he vowed to have her—despite evidence branding her a traitor to their fledgling country. Torn between honor and betrayal, loyalty and desire, they would dare to forge their own destiny, divided by intrigue— and consumed by love.

I picked Masque of Betrayal up one morning while waiting for the kids to get on the bus… then was really upset that I had to put it down and get to work!
What a book! Besides being a great historical romance I felt like I had a history lesson and experiences a great mystery!
Dane and Jacqui are terrific characters. They’re both headstrong but loving and principled. You couldn’t want to spend time with two better people.
The kitten in Masque of Betrayal was perfect! I absolutely loved Whiskey and thought he brought just the right touch to the book!
I especially loved how Ms. Kane pulled together the history for me. I read lots of books set in England around this time but rarely from eastern America so there was a lot I hadn’t put together. It was great!
