We do love a good cover reveal here at Novelicious. Especially when the book is set to be a big ‘un, which is what we reckon this Regency romance by Joanna Taylor will be. A self-published, bestselling erotica author and journalist, it will be interesting to watch Joanna’s crossover to historical fiction with Masquerade, which will be published by Little, Brown on August 4 2015.
The cover is full of intrigue, too. A little bit dark. A little bit playful. We dig it. So what’s Masquerade all about?Lizzy Ward, escapee of the most exclusive brothel in London, spends her days working the streets of Piccadilly, navigating the debt collectors and the gin halls. Lizzy is determined to build a better life, and a chance meeting with a fine Lord has the potential to change her fortunes for ever – if she succeeds in masquerading as a Lady, his Lady, for an entire week. It is the beginning of an adventure she could never have foreseen, but sumptuous gowns and an impeccable toilette will only take Lizzy so far … for even the most expensive mask can't protect her heart. Can a street girl fool the Ton? Only time will tell …
What do you think of the cover, guys? We’d love to hear your thoughts!
