The Masked Ball at Broxley Manor is a short prequel to the Royal Spyness series by Rhys Bowen. In this novella we are introduced to Lady Georgina who has just had an unsuccessful season out in society. She feels she will never be able to attract a suitable man but decides to accept an invitation to a masked ball anyway. At the ball there is an attack on a prince and Lady Georgina is kissed by a charming masked man.
Though short I enjoyed getting to know Lady Georgina and I felt that the characters were developed. I look forward to reading more In the series.
