Summary

I’m Ivy Giacometti, a nightclub singer from New York, but tonight, I’m masquerading as Miss Black. I’m visiting my friend Tessa who lives in New Orleans and we’ve just been busted for gate-crashing a masked party after Tessa pretends to know Countess Montgomery, the mysterious hostess. 

A charming and devilishly attractive stranger saves us from humiliation and ushers us inside, and it soon becomes clear that this is not the kind of party I was expecting. Things are getting heated and the atmosphere is unconventional to say the least, but so is my hostess, the Phantom, who drives me to my limits in a private room upstairs. 

When identities are hidden, nothing is what it seems, and only time will reveal what lies beneath when the mask finally drops....

hot, (would you?)

storyline completely threw me, madeleine Taylor creates romance from exotica,
masquerade opens with just that, gate crashing a ball with found invitation, ladies only, almost instantly (except masks) all present are undressed
with a stranger in private room, ivy subs to bdsm
but thier chemistry is so hot come morning, masks off, they find they need and want more
I think the concept is brilliant, sexy yes, but mellows into romance
tessa stavers excellent as ever with her narration
you enter and find it's not the sort of party you thought, or would normally attend, would you stay? really good story.

Tantalizing Tale

I loved this tantalizing tale of learning to trust. Full of hedonism at the beginning as wayward souls embrace and explore. Then it's sensual, lustful, steamy moments woven together as romance blossoms. Fantastic narration, very expressive and believable. Another success from Madeleine Taylor!

Deliciously hot!

Madeleine Taylor's work is what I like to call polished, high-end erotic romance and I'm absolutely here for it. I loved this in written form and narrator Tessa Stavers brings it to life beautifully as she did with the first two books. What a great idea having two MCs meet at a women-only masquerade ball at a mansion in New Orleans! When New York nightclub singer Ivy Giacometti visits her best friend Tessa in the exciting city, she takes Ivy to an invitation-only event where a password is required to enter. There, Ivy meets a striking woman who calls herself "The Phantom" and she soon realizes there's much more to this gathering than meets the eye. What occurs overnight is the stuff of fantasies - for Ivy and Tessa both.
I don't listen to a lot of erotica but really enjoy it when well done. And this is certainly that. This and the first of the three Taylor books The Good Girl were especially hot and I understand Taylor is working on a fourth. There is some light BDSM but nothing occurs that would be outside most people's comfort zone. It's all very consensual and eye opening for Ivy, who has not experienced the kind of intimacy this intriguing woman is offering. If you're not familiar with erotic romances or are a fan but haven't discovered Taylor yet, this is a great place to start! Another draw of these books is the eye-catching packaging and marketing artwork. Fantastic - I must have them all on my bookshelves! Lise Gold Books doesn't scrimp on quality or content. Recommend!

Very hot sweet story

From the first few minutes of this story, I was captured by these characters!! The story is short but very sweet and there is no shortage of very hot, erotic scenes. Tessa Seaver’s did a great job with all the different voices and you had no problem figuring out who was talking. Great book overall!

Discovering your true self

Ivy learned how to let go and trust her Phantom lover at the masquerade party. Kameron wears more than a mask to hide her true self but her growing attraction to Ivy makes her want to come clean about who she is. Their sexual energy is amazing and hot I love the narrator Tessa. She does a fantastic job with Madeleine’s stories.

stick with it!

The first part of this was not my cup of tea, but starting around chapter 10 it evolved into a story with depth and substance. I really enjoyed it. And if you're looking for HOT, this story definitely doesn't disappoint.
