A Man Who Can Wear Any Face
Caro Yeats doesn’t run from much. As a former investigative reporter now working PR for Toronto’s supernaturals, what she hasn’t seen mostly isn’t worth seeing. But the assignment to “rebrand” Eric Kelton’s out-of-control alter egos has her on edge from the start. Kelton is the heirarch of the Masquerada, beings able to change their face—their entire persona—on a whim. Eric’s charisma muddles her instincts. How can she trust a man who can become anybody?
A Woman Without A Past
Eric has never met anyone like Caro, with her lightning wit and uncanny insight. But desirable as she is, he’d be a fool to let her near. Struggling to hide the sudden loss of his powers, Eric can’t risk becoming entangled with a woman who scorns her supernatural side and claims not to play politics. The enemies on her trail are strong, clever, and vicious. And when they force Eric and Caro together, the fallout could shatter far more than two hearts . . .
Masked Possession by Alana Delacroix
Masked Possession had strong world building and a highly original premise.
Caro is a young woman working PR for the Tornonto supernaturals. She is ½ supernatural herself but has kept her nature hidden. She is sent to advise Eric Kelton, the leader of the Masquerada. The Masquerada is a species with the ability to alter their appearance and persona... and it just so happens that Caro supernatural other ½ happens to that special brand of supernatural.
Eric is immediately taken by Caro but he doesn’t quite trust her. Eric's rule is in jeopardy. Its threat comes from within.
The story is slow going with a building trust between Eric and Caro. They have enemies trying to take over from within.
I liked the overall concept but found it a bit repetitive. Masquerada is a really strong name for a new species that is introduced in Masked Possession but having it used 260 times is just one example of things that stalled the story telling.
In the end, Masked of Possession was unique, new and interesting.
I received this ARC copy of Masked Possession from Kensington Books - Lyrical Press. This is my honest and voluntary review. Masked Possession is set for publication August 8, 2017.
