Oh, semi-Gothic novel, how I’ve missed you. I cut my romance teeth on the classics in Gothic novels – Bronte, Woodiwiss and the indomitable Victoria Holt.

While naming this series the Roaring Twenties certainly has historical precedent, there is an argument to be made for “the Steamy Twenties”. Amid the magic and intrigue, Bennett creates two nuanced and well developed characters who chase treasure, test wits, and generate enough sexual heat to curl this book’s pages.

I love books where a high society girl goes to fancy dances and fights evil while still being able to get to ‘afternoon tea’.

Review: Masks (Cassandra Palmer World) by Karen Chance

While I’d have to go back and read all of Karen Chance’s books again to be sure, I am pretty sure MASKS is my favorite.
