Cover Reveal – Fatal Masquerade by Vivian Conroy

Posted on Updated on

Here at Review Sisters we have the great pleasure of being apart of Vivian Conroy’s latest Cosy Mystery Cover Reveal of Fatal Masquerade, which is book four in the Lady Alkmene Cosy Mystery series.

Blurb

Lady Alkmene and Jake Dubois are back in a gripping new adventure facing dangerous opponents at a masked ball in the countryside.

Masked Danger….

Lady Alkmene Callender has always loved grand parties, but when she receives an invitation to a masked ball thrown by Franklin Hargrove – oil magnate, aviation enthusiast and father of her best friend, Denise – she’s never seen such luxury. The estate is lit up with Chinese lanterns in the gardens, boats operated by footmen float across the pond and the guest list features the distinguished, rich and powerful!

But below the glamour, evil is lurking. When a dead body is discovered, it forces Lady Alkmene to throw off her mask and attempt to find the true killer before Denise’s family are accused. If only her partner, Jake Dubois, weren’t hiding something from her…

This case might just be more dangerous than either of them could have imagined.

Fatal Masquerade is to be released on 4th October and can be pre-ordered now at Amazon.

All About Virgina Heath

When Virginia Heath was a little girl it took her ages to fall asleep, so she made up stories in her head to help pass the time while she was staring at the ceiling.  As she got older, the stories became more complicated, sometimes taking weeks to get to the happy ending. Then one day, she decided to embrace the insomnia and start writing them down.

Fortunately, Harlequin Mills and Boon saw some potential in her stories and decided they would publish them. So far, she has been commissioned to write ten books for their Harlequin Historical series. Her first Regency Romance, That Despicable Rogue, was published in May 2016, and since then there are another five somewhere in the publishers pipeline for 2016 and 2017. Her 3rd book, The Discerning Gentleman’s Guide was shortlisted for a RONA (Romantic Novel of the Year Award).

She is currently working on her first series for Harlequin Historical- The Wild Warriners- which will hit the shelves in 2017 and a stand alone Christmas story as well.

She would love to hear from you on either Facebook or Twitter, especially if you love history as much as she does, and promises to try to remember to Blog about something interesting every month.

A former history teacher and enthusiastic tea drinker, Virginia lives near London with her wonderful husband and two teenagers. When she is not making up stories of her own, Virginia likes to travel to far off places, shop for things she doesn’t need and read other peoples’ stories.

Despite all of that, it still takes her forever to fall asleep.

A Warriner to Protect Her Book 1 in the #WildWarriners Series by Virginia Heath

The Blurb

An heiress in distress and an earl in disgrace… 

When heiress Violet Dunston escapes from an abduction, she finds an unlikely protector in Jack Warriner–a member of one of England’s most infamous families. Ensconced with mysterious Jack behind his manor’s walls, soon escape is the last thing on Letty’s mind! 

Jack may be an earl, but his father’s exploits have left him with nothing to offer except a tarnished name. He’s turned his back on the ton, but with Letty tempting him day and night, he finds himself contemplating the unthinkable–a society marriage!

The Review Sisters’s Thoughts

Amy’s Thoughts

I would have happily stayed in… what’s the opposite of a man cave? Delightful den! Until this tale was over but I’ve carried this book around with me for days and now I’m devastated that it’s over!

Jack Warriner, is the eldest of four brothers protects what is his fiercely and without reservation. His past shaping him into a man I’d take out to dinner anytime.

Jack wanted to “slay Dragons” for Letty. Theoretical Dragons, but Dragons nevertheless! All to protect his damsel in distress, Letty…

Not only have I fallen in love with one brother Jack, I have fallen in love with four, Jack, Jamie, Joe and Jacob, ‘The Wild Warriners.’

Frankie’s Thoughts 

This is just fabulous! It is thoroughly enjoyable and I think it is singularly the best book I have read this year. Ms Heath better pull her socks up because this is going to take some beating, I am fairly certain that she I’ll do it. Especially when we get to Jamie’s story, I was warned I would love him and I am very much looking forward to his outing. He reminds me of Gaelen Foley’s; Damien knight. Anyone who knows me will know how high a praise that is.I cannot say enough good thing’s about it.

The story is fast paced and keeps you gripped from that first page, it keeps you teetering on the edge of your seat as you read wondering where earth this is going to take you next. It really does have all the ingredients for a classic a love story with fabulously complicated characters which is all wrapped up with that wonderful Heath wit that we have come to know and love. I can see this being read and loved for years to come. I must warn you though you will never look at a sheep farmer in the same way again ..

Shell’s Thoughts 

‘If you ask me there are not enough feathers in the food. They are wasted in pillows.’

‘Only a fool would develop such a powerful emotion for a man who largely behaved as if she didn’t exist.’

These are my two favourites quotes from the book. If you liked the film Seven Brides For Seven Brothers then you will love this book, but even if you have never seen the film then I highly recommend that you read this book, Virginia you did a wonderful job and a different take on the film I loved it this book from start to finish.

Alison’s Thoughts

I absolutely loved every minute of it. On the one hand not being able to put it down and on the other not wanting it to end!

The story had me riveted from the very first paragraph. The writing flowed and the characters were very engaging.

I cannot wait to read the next book in the series about these four brothers.
This author has quickly become one of my favourites and I will be purchasing her future novels and also her back catalogue.

Very highly recommended to all lovers of historical romances!!

The Review Sisters’s Thoughts

Alison’s Thoughts 

My Oh My Oh My!!! What a beautiful love story this was. I thought I had fallen in love with Jack Warriner from the first book of the series but I fell just as hard for Jamie Warriner in this second book.

The story was just so enchanting that I really didn’t want it to end, you just knew from the very beginning that Jamie and Cassie absolutely belonged together.

I cannot wait to fall in love with the next Warriner brother in the third book of this series. Highly recommended read, this lady has become one of my favorite authors.

Amy’s Thoughts

Jamie and Cassie are kindred spirits, souls destined to meet each other in this life or the next. Jamie rescues Cassie only for her to rescue him straight back and they thoroughly deserved their happily-ever-after!

This love story is breath-takingly written. A love story that had me spell-bound from the get-go and continued to weave it’s magic until the final page.

A romance that is devilishly funny but just as emotionally charged as a love scene in the rain. A highly, highly recommended read.

Frankie’s Thoughts

Move over Heathcliffe there is a new gruff, monosyllabic, tormented hero in town in the form of Captain Jamie Warriner. Oh my word! I was warned I would love him and he has more than lived up to the hype, he really is something special. He is a proud man who after serving his country with courage facing down more horrors than any man should face he is back and he is in pain, not just physically but he is trying adjust to civilian life but like a lot of soldiers today poor Jamie is struggling. I was drawn to him the moment I met him in the previous book “A Warriner to protect her” there is just something about this gruff but hugely sensitive man, that draws you in. Yes, he may be as stubborn as an OX – as well as built like one – but he has a good and kind heart, who needs a little love.

Shell’s Thoughts

If he’d had any breath left in his lungs, he probably would have screamed in agony. All that came out instead was a weird hiss.’

‘Jamie thanks to his ancestors and over a decade of growing, he was now an ox of a man. An ox of a man with a useless left leg.’

Two of my favourite quotes! This is book 2 in Virginia’s Warriner Series. Well were do I start I loved it as I knew I would from start to finish, it made me laugh and also made me cry, I love the way Virginia writes she makes you engage with the characters.

Gwessie’s Thoughts

I literally could not put this awesome book down, was completely drawn in to the story and emotions of the characters as they unfolded having read #1 which I loved I knew what I may expect but it still blew me out of the water and I so very much enjoyed it, definitely cant wait to read #3 in the near future as the characters unfold more definitely adore this series and the author who wrote them cannot fault a single word any who love Historical Romance will love this it has everything from humour to tears in every setting truly wonderful read I must admit I did weep myself along with the characters but gladly come the end was weeping I joy.
