View my blog tour post on my Teen blog, Clean Teen Fiction, to see more information and a giveaway!
I would consider this book a New Adult since the main character is in her early 20s, but lucky for us lovers of clean romance this book was clean just like all of Marcia’s wonderful romance novels.
I love fairy tales! This was such a unique retelling of The Twelve Dancing Princesses. I didn’t know what to expect at every turn. Evony was a wonderful heroine: strong and brave, determined and kind. She was a joy to read. She only made me think, “No! Don’t do that! That’s a stupid choice!” one time. It’s annoying to read a book that has the main character making a bad choice at every turn. Thankfully that was not the case with Evony. She was smart and just . . . lovely. I don’t know how else to describe her.
Stavos was such a dreamy prince. I love to read Prince and Princess stories. I’m such a girl! Stavos did not disappoint as the hero. He was everything a prince should be, full of honor and bravery. It didn’t hurt that he was thought to be the most handsome man alive!
As with all of Marcia’s books there was a wonderful intriguing plot that kept me turning the page while full of breath taking romance that kept me smiling. If you’ve ever read a review for one of her books you’ve probably heard about her talent for writing kissing scenes. Those scenes were very swoony. 😉 This book also had a good amount of peril and action. It was easy to read late into the night.
Midnight Masquerade was a fairy tale laced with faint inducing romance and pulse stopping mystery.
Content Ratings: highlight between ( ) to view details
Sexual Content: moderate ( long kissing scenes one mention of tongue and some necking; kissing while in bed- no sex; hints of men taking advantage of women )

I received the book from I Am A Reader for the blog tour. Thank you! I am not paid for my reviews. My reviews are solely my opinion.
