Rena Mills plans to turn an abandoned abbey into a haunted bed-and-breakfast to prove she can be successful without her ex-fiancé. What she finds inside is Synn MacAllistair, the distinguished, self-proclaimed Ghost Keeper. Her dreams soon fill with sexual cravings for him. But are they dreams?
Synn, born in 1828, is determined to free the souls of the resident spirits, blaming himself for bringing the Red Death that killed them. When Rena steps into the old Pleasure Palace, he’s sure he can take her through the after-midnight Pleasure Rooms and stoke her passion to complete the Masque so the souls can cross over. Her innocent fire makes him crave more, but it’s far too late for him.
As Rena begins her erotic journey, her heart becomes more involved with every sensual caress until she discovers by completing the Masque she would lose her ghosts. Synn’s betrayal wars with her compassion for her ghostly friends. Torn, she must make a choice between her financial security and freeing seventy-three trapped souls. Either way, she could lose Synn.
Masque is an interesting story which has a cursed abbey, a bunch of friendly ghosts, one creepy ass one, and one who isn't really a ghost but is "trapped". In order to set them free Rena must complete the pleasure rooms. I loved this story, Synn and Rena really heat up the pages. It is engaging, has mystery, romance, and salvation. Lexi Post does a wonderful job with this remake of a classic Poe Tale, I couldn't put it down once I started reading it.
