Melissa's Mask

Rated 4.00/5 based on 1 reviews
This story takes up where Georgette Heyer's "The Corinthian" finishes, focusing instead on the character of Melissa Brandon. Why is she is so cold and intimidating? It turns out that all may not be quite as it seems. Why is the irritating Marquis of Skelton so interested in her and why is it that the highwayman and murderer Captain Trimble is so interested in their new home? More

About J. Howard Shelley

I am 59 years old and I have a daughter with a degree in History & English currently working as a historical researcher. When I left school I trained as a nurse in mental health and then in general nursing ending up in operating theatres. At the age of 45 I became a solicitor (for those of you born on the left hand side of the pond that is a type of lawyer) and I now specialise in litigation work. When I retire I fancy learning to be a blacksmith.

For the rest, I have qualifications in welding and ballroom dancing and I teach artistic roller skating. I play a reasonable trumpet I'm good at DIY and I like mountains.

I am no Georgette Heyer but, if you like her work I hope you might like mine too. I try to construct interesting (but not too convoluted) plots and you will find no sex or adult content in any of my work.

Review by: John Whelan on March 9, 2015 :
Sometimes I get the impression that some authors have heard of Georgette Heyer but never actually read one of her books or at least understood how carefully they were researched and constructed, so my first reaction on seeing Georgette Heyer mentioned is to avoid them like the plague. This one is different, it actually has a plot, it has historical detail and is fun to read. Very enjoyable, with interesting characters. Four stars because that's normally as high as I go.

Traditional Regency that's well worth reading.
