MISS BURTON UNMASKS A PRINCE
by Jennifer Moore
Prince Rodrigo de Talavera has lost everything to Napoleon. Jaded by war, he has become bitter and miserable—until he meets Meg, an American woman whose eccentric schemes and passion for life remind him what it is to laugh and to love. If only she knew him for himself and not as Carlo the stable hand. With the shadow of deception looming over their happy acquaintance and the dangers of war drawing ever more near, can Meg and Rodrigo find the courage to put aside their pretenses and discover if they can be loved as they truly are?
Praise for the Book
"Loved it! Jennifer Moore is quickly becoming a new favorite author of mine. She always manages to find a new perspective to look at the regency period from. Moore infuses humor and charm into the story as our prince and Miss Burton secretly get to know each other. It was delightful. I also liked learning a bit more about history and politics in 1812." - Cheryl on Goodreads
"There is something about royalty that tugs on my heart, especially when the royal is masquerading as a common man. I love the hidden message that we all hide behind masks and are vulnerable to revealing who we really are." - Katie Watkins on Goodreads
"Brimming with heart! Another great historical romance from one of my favorite authors, Miss Burton Unmasks a Prince, once again combines great characters with a fun plot." - Heidi Grange on Amazon
BLOG TOUR GIVEAWAY
Covenant Communications is sponsoring this giveaway-
They will notify the winner through email.
Jennifer Moore is a passionate reader and writer of all things romance due to the need to balance the rest of her world that includes a perpetually traveling husband and four active sons, who create heaps of laundry that is anything but romantic. Jennifer has a B.A. in Linguistics from the University of Utah and is a Guitar Hero champion. She lives in northern Utah with her family, but most of the time wishes she was aboard a British frigate during the age of sail.
Unfortunately, Thornshire Castle was not haunted. No weeping prisoner languished in the dungeon; no ravenous wolves prowled the surrounding woods. There was not even a menacing highwayman lying in wait on the road from Portsmouth. These unfortunate discoveries made Meg Burton's first trip to England an abysmal disappointment.
Meg wrapped a warm cloak around her shoulders as she stepped into the early morning air, clutching her book in the crook of her elbow. She glanced behind her once as she rounded the corner of the garden wall, glad to see she'd not been followed. Her lady's maid, Bessie, would surely wish her to remain inside on such a cold day, and the ensuing argument would no doubt end with Meg's compliance.
Looking up, she sighed. Did the sun ever shine in England? Everyone had assured her that spring was on the way, but Meg had yet to see any blue sky since her arrival two days earlier.
She looked about to get her bearings and turned toward the forest, judging the structure with the domed roof she'd seen from the window of her bedchamber to be in that direction. Walking down a garden pathway with the gravel crunching beneath her slippers, she saw that the gardens, even in the dead of winter, were immaculately tended. Not a bit of overgrown brambles or thorny stems to lend an air of foreboding to the grounds. Everything was tidy. And beautiful. And uninteresting.
Her mother had approached her six weeks ago with the news that Meg was to take a sea voyage with her elder brother, Daniel, and that their distant cousin, the Duke of Southampton, had agreed to sponsor Meg for a London Season. She had imagined a grand adventure filled with romance, excitement, and danger--a far cry from the limited society of Charleston, South Carolina.
How could it be otherwise? Her cousin's new wife, Serena, was a princesa from Spain, who had escaped a French prison and had been secretly smuggled from the country by a band of Spanish guerrillas and British officers. Meg sighed as she thought of how thrilling the adventure must have been.
It was while they were at sea that Daniel had told Meg the real reason for their journey.
