The Girl Behind the Mask
Hidden Women: 1
By Stella Knightley
Two passionate stories of love, lust and seduction that will leave you wanting more . . . The first novel in the HIDDEN WOMEN trilogy explores the temptations of eighteenth-century Venice.
Leaving the heartache of sexual betrayal behind her in London, historian Sarah Thomson intends to make the most of her research trip to Venice. But she soon finds her attention consumed by mysterious millionaire Marco Donato. Despite their deepening relationship, however, the handsome playboy persists in playing a secretive game. What exactly is Marco hiding?
The subject of Sarah's research is eighteenth-century Venetian Luciana Giordano. At a time when debauchery is the city's favourite pastime, virginal Luciana is kept out of trouble by a zealous chaperone - until she meets a man who promises to help her escape her restraints. But just what does the worldly stranger want to teach her in return?
Stella Knightley is the author of twenty-six novels published under other names. THE GIRL BEHIND THE MASK is the first of three books in the Hidden Women series, which blends the daring stories of historical women of note with an erotically-charged contemporary love affair which will delight the fans of Fifty Shades. Stella grew up in the west of England and now lives in London.

THE GIRL BEHIND THE MASK is exceedingly enjoyable on so many levels . . . I'm anticipating the next in the trilogy for the story, the historical fiction, the familiarity of tentative sexual debauchery, the oh-so-English heroine. — freedom451.com
