Unmasking the Earl
Series: Wayward in Wessex
Release Date: May 15, 2017
Devastated by the disappearance of his sister, the Earl of Stranraer has gone to extraordinary lengths to find the notorious rake responsible, and enters his household incognito to wreak his vengeance. But his enemy has an unexpected protector—the innocent but headstrong Miss Cassandra Blythe.
Cassie is determined to learn the art of seduction. But she is blindsided by her body’s thrilling response to the wrong man—a mysterious servant who shows up at the most inauspicious moments to spoil her lessons in love with warnings of her imminent ruin. When she learns the handsome servant’s identity and the reason for his deception, she resolves to help Stranraer, but only if he abandons his vow to destroy his enemy.
The earl is sorely tempted to give the meddlesome beauty a lesson in seduction she’ll never forget. But she turns the tables, and he gets his own lesson in forgiveness…and love.

I really enjoyed Unmasking the Earl. Cassie and Ned were so much fun to read! While searching for his sister, Ned goes undercover as a servant named Ganstridge to find out if the scandalous man, Captain Wycherley, has done something to Ned’s sister, Ned suspects the Captain is hiding his sister with child, leaving her alone and ruined or even worse dead.
Cassie pines for a man, Julian, who thinks of her as a child. She decides to take matters into her own hands and uses the willing Captain to teach her the ways of seduction, 1821 style. Fearing Cassie is falling victim to the Captain’s less than scrupulous manner, Ned oversteps his undercover role to try to keep the head-strong Cassie’s reputation out of danger.
The characters in Unmasking the Earl are fun and engaging. While as a Behind Closed Doors Book Review book it is mild on the spicy side of things, the physical romance is satisfying and fairly detailed (I always want more, though). The story moves along and offers a romp like atmosphere of who is fooling whom. Keysian is a new author for me and a look forward to her next book!
