Ho boy, this was a tasty little treat. But being stranded is one of my favorite tropes. You show me any novel where the main couple is forced together, especially in a cabin during a snowstorm, and I will read it. The stepsibling part could have been off-putting, but the couple did not grow up as siblings (and technically aren’t even siblings at the beginning of the story) so it wasn’t weird, creepy, or incestuous.
I still don’t know how I feel about this novel. I felt like the sex scenes in Claimed were much hotter, but Masks didn’t lack heat. However, she jumped into bed with him so quickly that it made my head spin. I am not saying anything against quick, anonymous sex, but it seemed out of character for her.
I have read it countless times before. Rivard knew what she was doing and expertly wove a story of love, sacrifice, and fantasy. I will definitely be continuing the series.
