Smart, sassy, fabulous, well tressed and well dressed, she has read every GH book backwards and forwards. As to her review of The Masqueraders— please enjoy. For first-time readers: Spoiler alert. Such a daring escape… Their infamous adventurer father has taught Prudence Tremaine and her brother Robin to be masters of disguise.

The Masqueraders could be set in no other time; it requires both the artifice and the intrigue to work. They are on their way to London, to settle with a family friend and await the arrival of their father. The reason for the disguise is simple: Robin and his father backed the Stuarts in the uprising, and there is a price on each of their heads. But the reason they are indulging in this amazing masquerade of switched genders is due to their father, who has led them a precarious and wildly improper upbringing through most of the major cities of Europe.

But there is more mystery here, and the return to England in this fantastical make-believe plays into it. In the opening chapter, the brother and sister meet an enchanting young lady who had wished for some excitement in her life ,but turned to the wrong person. Letitia becomes great friends with the lovely Kate, who in his real person is on his way to falling in love with the young lady.

Sir Anthony also takes a shine to the attractive young man, who is so surprisingly worldly and well traveled, if slightly too smooth of cheek. We watch these circuitous wooings with delight; the young lady is all unaware, but what of Sir Anthony?

He is a large man in his mids, said by many to be sleepy, if not altogether dull, and slow to quarrel. But, large as he is, there is more to Tony Fanshawe than meets the eye. He asks if they had thought of what could have happened to Prudence had her identity been discovered by someone not in love with her. I wondered when I saw her tip wine down her arm at my card party, I confess.

But I was watching her closer than she knew. As is always the case in a Heyer historical novel, the times and the place are carefully laid out. The political fallout, the harsh measures taken against the Jacobites, and the dangers of living in London at that time all play their part in the plot, adding some weight, if not gravitas, to this fine caper. In fact, the stylized society that was so much of the midth Century is what makes this plot work.

Only in the elegant velvets and laces, the swordsticks and elaborate hairdos, long full petticoats, boots and full-skirted coats with fine gilt lacings could the brother and sister pull off their amazing disguises and the incredibly intricate plot unwind. So too does his creator, in this charming tale of adventurers.

The Masqueraders is a delightful romp from beginning to end, with one of the most romantic interludes, a ride in the moonlight, ever penned by this delightful and dependable author.
