The Blue Devil
A historical meleé of masquerades, mistaken identities, chase scenes, spies, and dotty (or are they?) old ladies. Nominated for a Golden Heart Award™ by the Romance Writers of America, this is Regency romance at its best!
Hiding in Plain Sight...
The Blue Devil is a dashing, brooding spy set to catch a traitor who uses a finishing school for young ladies as a base of operations. But he’s having trouble keeping his mind on his mission, for one of the students reminds him too much of the mysterious Titania, a fairy queen who fled after they kissed at a glittering masquerade ball.
Kathryn St. David is pretending to be a student at the school in order to recover her dear auntie’s lost diary, which contains a scandalous secret that could ruin them both. But she’s horrified to discover that her roommate is the ward of the notorious, darkly attractive Marquis of Blackshire—who seems to be keeping secrets of his own. Will he recognize her as the fairy queen and expose her as the lady who kissed him like a strumpet in the moonlight?

The Blue Devil
Very good. Kept me well entertained for sure!
Painful to read
For characters that were supposed to be so intelligent, they were blinded by the absolute flimsiest of plot lines imaginable. There was absolutely no rhyme or reason to this story, and the happenings were so far fetched that it ruined the whole book. There has to be some semblance of reality in a story, and really- the ton is going to buy that a debutante walks in with a torn bodice was mauled by dogs? Insane.
Not enough dialogue and way too much narration. Also, confusing because not everything was explained.
