Moonlight Masquerade

Full Product Description

A twisted tale of intrigue and deception intertwined with romance – ‘Moonlight Masquerade’ relishes in a gripping plot and remarkable characters.

The widowed Lady Celine Wexham is everything an English countess should aspire to be, except for spying for the infamous Napoleon Bonaparte. A British Foreign Officer is given a new assignment to uncover the truth as to where her allegiance lies.

Posing as her butler, Rees Phillips finds himself caught up in a greater plot which questions his own loyalty to the crown. Will he find the proof that he needs before it’s too late?

“Intrigue, romance, a clandestine kiss… all cast in a Regency setting so magnificently detailed I could see the fabrics and feel the glow of another era. A wonderfully romantic and memorable read!” – Maureen Lang, author of Bees in the Butterfly Garden

Publisher's Description

Sometimes it is hard to tell if you are the cat or the mouse.

Lady Céline Wexham seems the model British subject. French by birth but enjoying life in 1813 as a widowed English countess, she is in the unique position of being able to help those in need-or to spy for the notorious Napoleon Bonaparte.

When Rees Phillips of the British Foreign Office is sent to pose as the countess’s butler and discover where her true loyalties lie, he is confident he will uncover the truth. But the longer he is in her fashionable townhouse in London’s West End, the more his staunch loyalty to the Crown begins to waver as he falls under Lady Wexham’s spell.

Will he find the proof he needs? And if she is a spy after all, what then will he do?

With sharp wit, fast-paced dialogue, and infectious intrigue, Ruth Axtell deftly creates a world where black and white burst into a confusion of colors-and no one is who they seem.


“The first paragraph drew me into the story, and the next twist held me there to the end.” – Laurie Alice Eakes, author of A Flight of Fancy

“A wonderful romance, graced with expert detail of the Regency period, as well as with Ruth Axtell’s usual flair for intensely romantic situations between characters so real I couldn’t stop thinking about them.” – Melanie Dickerson, two-time Christy Award finalist and author of The Healer’s Apprentice and The Merchant’s Daughter
