Book Description: Midnight Masquerade 
Stavos Voronin was not as blind-eyed as many nobles and royals. Evony’s physical gestures—even the simplest movement of her hands—revealed that she had not always been destitute. The same was true of the children—of their polished manners and the boy’s knowledge of horses and tendency to be bold and fearless of strangers. Ah yes, Stavos enjoyed a good mystery. After all, interest in the inexplicable circumstances surrounding the royals of Abawyth was the very thing that had lured him to the kingdom—the enigma of Abawyth’s twelve sleepy princesses. And yet now—now his mind was all the more intrigued. Not only was the obscurity of what had caused the profound and baffling torpidity of Abawyth’s princesses laid out before him, but also he found his curiosity intensely piqued over the riddle surrounding the very lovely Evony and her siblings. As Stavos strode through the village resting on the outskirts of Abawyth Castle, his mind reeled with possibilities. His musings were drawn back to why he had come to Abawyth at all—to solve the conundrum surrounding the twelve beautiful princesses of Abawyth kingdom—to solve the seemingly impenetrable crux and thereby win the hand of one of Abawyth’s princesses, as his father, King Letholdus of Ethiarien, had commanded. 

My Review:

 I absolutely loved this re-telling of The Twelve Dancing Princesses. I have read many different versions of this fairy tale and this one was just enchanting as the rest. I loved Prince Stavos and Princess Evony. Stavos is the best kind of hero! If you've read anything of Marcia's before, you know her clean romances are every bit as exciting and full of passionate kisses as more erotic stories without the smut. 

I loved the different mysteries and twists that were found in this version. This is a book that you will read in one sitting. I also have a feeling that this is the kind of book that you will read again and again. So if you love fairytale re-tellings you will love this beautifully written tale.
