A MERRY DANCE by Josi S. Kilpack. When Lila overhears her uncle talking about a man coming to look for property in the county, she doesn’t think twice, until her uncle says he hopes Lila will find enough interest to marry the man. How can she marry someone named Mortimer Luthford, not to mention that his advanced age of thirty-three, and especially since she’s already in love with her absent cousin Neville? But when Mortimer arrives, Lila has to try every trick known to women to act not interested in the rather fascinating man, which proves a very difficult fa├žade to maintain.

UNMASKING THE DUKE by Donna Hatch. The last thing Hannah Palmer wants to do is flirt with men in a crowded ballroom, but when her sister throws a Masquerade Ball, Hannah can’t say no to the invitation and takes comfort behind a mask. She dances with a charming masked man, matching him wit for wit. When the glorious evening culminates in a kiss, and the two remove their masks, Hannah is horrified to discover the man she’s been flirting with all night is her most despised neighbor, the Duke of Suttenberg. No matter how charming the duke was at the ball, and how wonderful the kiss, he is the last man she’d ever accept.

WHAT’S IN A NAME by Nancy Campbell Allen. Penelope Timely has a terrible secret. She’s been writing letters to the Duke of Wilmington, pretending to be her ever-proper twin sister, Persephone. Now, the duke has written that he’ll be coming for the Autumn Masquerade Ball and Festival. Penelope will have to continue the charade while the duke is in town in order to protect her sister. The Duke of Wilmington isn’t fooled for a moment, but instead of confessing that he knows about the deception, he finds himself utterly charmed by Penelope and jumps into the game of deception to see how far the twin sisters will take it.

MY THOUGHTS:
A Merry Dance by: Josi S Kilpack
I loved this story. I love that it stuck true to life. Sometimes we think we have life all planned out. We think we know what we want and just how to get it. Then we find out that sometimes it just doesn't go that way. It reminded me of the song "Unanswered Prayers" by Garth Brooks. When a writer can pull in real life experiences and make it entertaining you know they are something pretty great! Awesome job Josi! 

Unmasking the Duke by:Donna Hatch
Everyone has a time when they feel intimidated by life and that they don't fit in. I loved that in this sorry Hannah and Bennett were able to let go and be themselves when they were masked for the party. It goes to show that everyone, in every station of life, has insecurities and when we are able to let go and enjoy ourselves we are always better off! I always love a good happily ever after story!

What's in a Name by: Nancy Campbell Allen
Two of my best friends growing up were identical twins. I don't know that they ever tried pretending to be the other twin. It was always fun to see people who didn't know them really well trying to tell them apart. Each of us is a individual with our own personalities and traits, that's what what makes us all so great! I loved that Henry was never fooled by the name. That he has truly fallen for Penny and 'recognized' her from the very start! What a great ending to this set of books!
