Unmasked by the Marquess

Cat Sebastian. Avon Impulse, $3.99 e-book (384p) ISBN 978-0-06-282065-5

A bisexual marquess and a genderqueer con artist fall in love in the spectacular first book of Sebastian’s Regency Impostors series. Robert Selby, a man of no great consequence in Regency England, wants to see his sister safely married off, and he hopes to use a tenuous connection to Alistair, Lord Pembroke, to launch her social season. As Robert and Alistair begin to form a deeper emotional bond, Robert is forced to reveal that the body beneath his gentleman’s clothing isn’t what Alistair expects, nor is his relation to Miss Selby what he makes it out to be. The romance that develops is remarkably tender, but with Alistair wanting a wife and an heir and Robert unwilling to live as a “proper” woman, it seems like their relationship is doomed before it gets off the ground. This delightful book will captivate readers with beautiful character development, emotional thrills, and a swoon-worthy courtship. Agent: Deidre Knight, Knight Agency. (Apr.)
