Sisters are something that I know a lot about. I have four! And while we don't always get along, we are family... and we know the secrets.
Author Jennifer Raines has twin sisters in her latest release, MASQUERADE. These two are about as opposite as can be but can get by pretending to be the other. While that sounds great on the surface, I know from many TV shows over the years, that it really isn't a good idea. With that in the back of my mind, I knew the mix-up would come back to haunt Kate.
MASQUERADE is more than the traditional sister swap story. Ms. Raines uses the swap in a unique way. Toss in a romance with a hunky business man, and I was unable to stop turning the pages.
Now available in ebook and paperback, MASQUERADE is a great story about one woman's hidden passions.
Fool me once…
Money won’t bring LIAM QUINN’S father back, but it’ll save his mother’s home. A high-paying law partnership is in his sights. To win it, he needs to successfully land a project. Problem is the project requires absolute confidentiality, and he’s just discovered his estranged identical twin is appearing life size on a billboard across the city. The second catch is a return to environmental law. His earlier career imploded after his lover was revealed as a mining company spy.
Researcher and soon-to-be-published romance author KATE TURNER needs a disguise. Maybe more than one. Her famous playwright father despises ‘trashy’ novels. Her ex-boyfriend mocked her ‘dirty little secret’, then stalked her when she left him. Her identical twin coaxes her into appearing on a billboard to prove she can be notorious and anonymous at the same time. No one connects the billboard model to the dowdy researcher Kate has become, and no one knows about her author pseudonym and second disguise as Ms. Sexy Romance.
Kate and Liam’s lives collide when she’s hired as Liam’s research assistant. Liam’s boss laughs off the billboard. Having doubles is the perfect cover for confidential field work.
A masquerade, a road trip, a steamy attraction, the sudden appearance of Liam’s old lover, and Ms. Sexy Romance’s unexpected arrival in the wrong place at the wrong time, and Liam and Kate discover the steps they took to protect their hearts might break them.
Award winning author Jennifer Raines’ stories combine a love of romance with contemporary conflicts. Her writing is both relevant and heart-warming. Each story is a journey across the world. Jennifer likes to think her readers get occasional hints of the deep passion of a Nora Roberts or the unshakeable loyalty of a Grace Burrowes where love conquers loneliness, distrust and fear.
--“A Jennifer Raines romance will make you sigh in the best possible way!”-- Best Selling Author, Grace Burrowes
Liam gestured to her report, open in front of him. “Simple summaries of assorted environmental disputes across Australia. That’s not a lot to work with.”
“Have you read my report, Mr. Quinn?” Kate emphasised his surname, annoyance at the snub for her research trumping her anxiety at exposure. She’d back her research skills against anyone in this room.
“I’ve scanned it.” His shoulder lifted in an offhand shrug.
Arrogant moron. Another man living in an echo chamber, so sure his worldview was right not even a drone buzzing overhead would alert him to imminent attack. Was he hostile because his identical twin Niall had kept the billboard campaign secret from him? Or generally hostile to new ideas? “Then you’re being deliberately offensive.”
“Not yet,” he answered, leaning forward—a panther preparing to spring.
Dismayed to be so attuned to his slightest movement, she stiffened her spine.
Liam had her second-guessing her defence strategy. Until Liam, Kate had trusted that Ms. Dowdy Researcher couldn’t be linked to the billboard—the final stress test to confirm no one, especially not her besuited, controlling ex-boyfriend, would recognise Ms. Dowdy as Anna Turner’s twin.
