The Devil's Masquerade - Book 3 Royal Pains by Nina Mason Blog Tour

Today, we are hosting the blog tour for THE DEVIL'S MASQUERADE, book three in Nina Mason’s erotic historical series ROYAL PAINS. Set in Great Britain during the Restoration period, the series chronicles the sexual, marital, and political exploits of Robert and Maggie Armstrong, the Duke and Duchess of Dunwoody.

Buy it now!

Here's the blurb:
Beware the devil in disguise… 

The year is now 1685 and Maggie’s father has just been crowned King of Great Britain, but that doesn’t mean trouble is over for the Duke and Duchess of Dunwoody. Rather than cool the flames of hatred between Papists and Protestants, the coronation of a Catholic monarch has only added accelerant to the already raging blaze. Two-faced devils lurk in every corner of the royal court, as do diseases with the power to kill and maim. When Robert falls prey to the smallpox virus, it looks as though Maggie will lose the two people most precious to her—her beloved husband and their only child—the son she bore three months before after five years of heartbreaking miscarriages and stillbirths. The one person in London who can help save her son demands a steep price in exchange her services. Will Maggie trade Robert’s hard-won fidelity to save her only child…or offer the apothecary an even more scandalous alternative?

Note: ROYAL PAINS contains highly erotic content and is intended to be read in order.

My Review

Book 3 in the royal pains series.

Robert and his rosebud have now been married five years and things have move on, they now have a young baby. I love the the relationship these two have, it's obviously a historical story but the way they see each other is a more modern marriage, and what happens in their bedchambers is seriously sexy!

In this instalment we get to watch both of them go through some insecurities, but these two being so devoted to each other come through with flying colours.

The historical element is really interesting and the names and behaviours very fitting for the times.

The passion is scorching in this book, when they add another person to the equation it gets even hotter. I did find the Menage went on a little to long for a man recovering from a serious illness, wow he has some stamina! 

The book ends on a slight cliffy, but knowing there's another book makes me hopeful everyone is safe. 

At the back of the book there's a list of unfamiliar words with meanings, one word is fortnight... Maybe it's not a word used in U.S. But in the UK it's used a lot, so was surprised to see that listed. 

Looking forward to book four and more of Robert and his beloved rosebud.

4.5 stars
