The cold and aloof Marquess of Hawksfield is the worst peer in London. He has no friends, no fortune, and no time for fools. The dissolute ways of the ton disgust him. But when Archer assumes the identity of the mysterious and devilish Masked Marauder, he is free to do as he pleases.

Sheltered heiress Lady Briannon Findlay is a wallflower, and prefers it that way. Until she meets the nefarious Masked Marauder, a gentleman thief waylaying carriages from London to Essex, who awakens sensual impulses she never knew she had. Provocative and darkly attractive, his artful seduction leaves her wanting more.

When Brynn discovers that Archer and the Masked Marauder are one and the same, trust and attraction collide. But after a murder is committed by an imposter marauder, they must risk everything to find the real killer...including their love.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I found myself enchanted with their world So I feel the need to preface this with the fact that I'm generally one to stick with contemporary romance, versus historical, and that this is my first historical romance in probably 10 years. If you're someone who reads a lot of historical romance, don't laugh too hard at me if I go a little fangirl. :P Alright, that out of the way, I've gotta say that I LOVED THIS! I had looked a few months before hearing about this for stories with knights or pirates and, not being familiar with this sub-genre, had no idea where to start. The thing that really got me interested in this one was: 1) The cover. Seriously, it's mesmerizing and I find myself staring at it for, ahem, too long. :) 2) The fact that our hero is Robin-Hood-esque. Um, yes please! I started reading this and it starts with our hero robbing a carriage that holds our heroine. Lady Briannon (Brynn) is feisty and stubborn and I thought she was awesome from the moment she stood her ground with a guy holding a pistol at her, but was smart enough not to push him too far. She is my absolute favorite type of heroine, probably because I'm fairly feisty and stubborn myself. ;) Then, we officially meet Archer, Marquess of Hawksfield. He's obviously not a big fan of all the pomp & circumstance of his peers, is known for his cold and rake-ish behavior, and is pretty much just as stubborn as Lady Briannon. Through a series of happenstance and parties people with their titles attend, these two spar with one another in such a delightful way and I really just loved the way their relationship built up and the way they dealt with everything that came their way. Their chemistry was also fantastic, burning up the pages. And, it needs to be said, I enjoyed the "Regency" aspect more than I had even thought I might. These characters were most definitely high society English, but felt almost contemporary. I found myself enchanted with their world and a lot of the terminology used ("He would have smalls on, surely.") There is also a fair amount of suspense in this and a really fun mystery that unravels that had me guessing and then second-guessing for the majority of the story (Though it was not without an "I KNEW IT!" at a particular reveal.) To wrap this up, I say READ THIS! If you are at all a fan of Downton Abbey, The Princess Bride, Elizabeth & Will in the Pirates movies, and/or Robin Hood, I think that you will be as charmed by it as I was!
