Intricate tale of love.
Struggling art student Samantha Telford finds herself swept off her feet after meeting Greek industrialist Perseus Kostopoulos. To protect him from his former fiance, the woman who stabbed a knife into his chin, Sam is marrying Perseus and traveling to Greece with him. Yet when Perseus hears the truth from his first love, will Sam be forced to leave the only man she will ever love?

A complicated weaving of various plot lines from an increasingly talented author. When you understand their motivations, there are no real villains.

rebecca winters has written another keeper!
The heroine meets the hero in the most amazing way. She has to clean this office building and she cleans the suite of a Greek shipping tycoon. An art student, she has to find scraps of paper to finish an assignment for her class. It's a collage. She made a collage of the building owned by the hero. Anyway, he needs that scrap of paper. it's a phone number which could lead back to the woman he loved in his past, the woman who gave him the scar. When the heroine and the hero meet in his office, he demands to know where the paper is. Of course it is in her collage which is now locked up at the university. He goes there with her to retrieve it, then takes the collage to her apartment to get it off the convass. That's when the start to fall in love and she ends up going to Greece with him. It's an incredible story caught up with a Greek myth. I don't know how Ms. Winters does it, but she hooks me every time.

It's an "OK" read.
Remy Jardin is in France as a masquerade ball when she stumbles upon a conversation that she is not to hear. Realizing she is in danger she turns to leave- being discovered by one of the participants in the conversation. He catches up with her. They argue. He hits her, knocking her to the ground where she hits her head on the tree. She is discovered by a couple of tourist. They get her to the hospital where she is discovered to have amnesia. Remembering nothing. An article about her identity is placed in the newspaper w/her picture. Her family sees it and sends someone after her to bring her back to the US, back home-Cole Buchanan, president of the family shipping company, and former lover/boyfriend of Remy. While Remy is busy trying to regain her memory with different flash backs- she stumbles on an insurance scam dealing with a company oil tanker that was lost at sea recently. She starts asking questions that someone is feeling threatened by- enough to beat her up again and tell her to stop being nosy. Did that have to do with the conversation that she over-heard in France? Is Cole involved and is that why they had broken off their relationship? The read is ok. At one time the maid tells Remy how the family got their fortune in the beginning having to do with a love affair between a rich cajun debutante and a yankee ship owner that was disapproved of by her family, ending in death, grief, loss of love, and the birth of an illegitimate son left with a fortune. I enjoyed that story more than the actual one. Read it for yourself and see what you think.

Oh, the shame!
Living abroad and starved for English language books drove me to read Masquerade, one of the few available options. What a book. You want to say that it's a must-read on its own terms, but you can't- the best you can do is that it's an okay-read. The prose is stilted and repetitive, and while Dailey is decent at using this repetition to build up suspense, she doesn't take it anywhere, so it just kind of fizzles. Furthermore, the love story set in the middle may provide a parallel, but it has no place in her novel- she either couldn't come up with enough plot or couldn't devise a way to throw in a third love scene between the two main characters. I'm new to the romance genre, but if this is among the best of what it has to offer, I'll be searching elsewhere for good reading soon. Masquerade is a nice try, but the plot isn't compelling, and the steamy scenes just aren't steamy enough. All in all, read it if you have to, but try to avoid it.

More of a mystery than a romance
In the cassette version of Masquerade, the relationship between Remy and her lover doesn't really factor in to most of the story, and is left open, allowing the book to become more of a mystery novel than a romance.

Synopsis: Waking from a head injury, Remy Jardin finds herself in the middle of a life she can't remember. A member of one of the wealthiest families in New Orleans, the lover of a man her family despises, and the guardian of a dark secret that someone is willing to kill for.
