In the guise of a princess, Phoebe is captivated by a handsome swashbuckler who's also adopted a more daring persona. Noah Kendrick's wealth has made him wary, especially of women: Everybody wants something. When Noah and Phoebe meet again in Knights Bridge, at first neither recognizes the other. And neither one is sure they can trust the magic of the night they shared - until an unexpected threat prompts them to unmask their truest selves. After all, it takes more than just the right costume to live out your personal fairy tale. It takes heart...and the courage to be more than you ever dreamed.

Insipid! Boring at best!
I kept waiting for something interesting to happen in this story but it never did. Quick synopsis: Couple meet each other at a costume ball, instant attraction, lose each other at ball, no idea of each other's name or face as they were wearing masks. Both turn up in the same small town, eventually realize they were the people from the ball. Then nothing; lots of talk about tomatoes, basil, and goats. There is a sub story of the main characters sisters troubled marriage, and about some clothes found in the attic of the library. (who could have possibly made these clothes) That's the extent of this story; resolving who made the clothes in the attic, the eventual getting together of the main characters, and the sister and her husband talking it out. BORING!! No action, no real dialogue between the main characters.
I would not waste a credit, just buy it if you want a sweet insipid story. This must have been one of her first stories written.
The narrator is very good, she was the only thing positive about this book.

This is a second book in a series, which I did not know when I purchased it. It works, however, as a stand-alone book. The story was engaging, as it deals with mystery and romance. Phoebe finds some old dresses in a forgotten room in the town library and loans them to her sister and friend for a charity masked ball. She decides at the last minute to use one of the dresses and attend the ball herself. There she meets a mysterious masked swashbuckler and sparks ensue. This story is fairly typical and not a strain on the brain cells. It's good, but not great.
