|Plot Summary of Masquerading the Marquess|
Avon, Oct 2004, 5.99, 384 pp.
In 1823 caricaturist Calliope Minton gains access to her subjects by donning disguises; currently she works as Lady Simpson's companion. Her prime target of late has been Marques James Trenton, who gets her fired.
Not long afterward, Calliope arranges through her mentor Robert Cruickshank to pretend to be a courtesan attached to Stephen Chalmers, who has just come in from the cold. James who works undercover with Stephen immediately recognizes his beautiful companion as Calliope and not Esmeralda as she claims. When someone abducts Stephen, James and Calliope try to rescue him and to uncover the identity of the traitor in the Home Office even though he ponders her masquerades and how they link to the vanishing while the duo also falls in love.
