Praise for Olivia and the Masked Duke
"A very hot and perfectly paced page turner, all the way to happily ever after." -NPR
"An exciting rollercoaster of a love story! This book delivers on a variety of levels. A slow burn, friends to lovers story. The plot is intricate, intimate, and all consuming. The couple's passion burns through the pages." -Jenna's Historical Romance Reviews
"This book has pretty much reduced me to describing it in one-word sentences. RAWR. YUM. YES!! SWEET. MORE... Livy and Ben together were ***swoon***. I really couldn't get enough of them. The writing, as always with Grace Callaway, was beautiful, heartfelt, and full of emotion. Every time I read something she writes, I can feel it completely. The storyline was fantastic, and I was captivated from beginning to end." -Candace, BookBub
"Olivia and Ben are so wonderful together. It is rare to find a match where the H & h share such a deep bond.... This book has it all-lead characters you truly love, fabulous side characters, murder, mystery, action, and a generous helping of steam and romance!" -Nazmin, Goodreads
"Ben and Olivia's friendship is detailed through the years, and you can't help falling in love with them and rooting for a happy ending. There's a mystery that finally helps bring Ben and Olivia together (I don't want give out any spoilers). There are some hot scenes between the two and lots of ups and downs in their relationship. If you love great character development, mystery, and a hot love story then this book is for you."-Rhonda, Goodreads
"This book was sexy, heartfelt, and exciting. Ben, the Duke of Hadleigh, may be Callaway's darkest hero yet... Livy has loved him since he saved her life when she was twelve years old. She's the one person who sees him as completely good and lovable. Grace did a great job of redeeming Ben. This book has Grace's signature sexiness and suspense that she's so great at writing." -Nancy, Goodreads
"This was another engaging and action-packed read that delivered likeable and interesting characters, mystery and intrigue, and steamy goodness galore!" -MG, Goodreads

"Despite the age gap, Ben and Livy's friendship is so natural. Their friendship never feels awkward and the transition from friends to lovers is done tastefully (and steamily). Grace Callaway is always reliable when it comes to writing romances that are both romantic and steamy." -Romance Library
"Get out the high velocity fan because you will need it while reading this story. It is hotter than hot, I am not kidding. I love a tortured hero and if you do also, then grab this story right away...I love how Grace can pull you into the story of these characters and make you feel as if you are there with them. I was totally enthralled with reading, and I swear I felt as if I was in their dilemma. Astounding storytelling." -Angela, Goodreads
"I loved this book from beginning to end. The first book of a new series catches you early and keeps you engaged. It was the perfect mix of drama, humor, romance, and steam. Grace Callaway is a must read for me." -Stacy, Goodreads--This text refers to the paperback edition.

An exciting rollercoaster of a love story!
This book delivers on a variety of levels. A slow burn, friends to lovers story. The plot is intricate, intimate, and all consuming. The couple’s passion burns through the pages.
Ben and Livy’s bond was forged when Ben saved Livy as a child. It was a powerful bond of the strongest of friendships. Then Livy grows up and finds herself in love with the man she has known as her best friend for most of her life.
Ben is a widower that is jaded and damaged from a past full of mistakes. He fought a plethora of demons including violence and substance abuse. He pulls himself out of this, yet still feels his soul is too tarnished for the likes of Livy. He has to have control over all aspects of his life including his romantic relationships. I enjoyed his journey where at first he lets his past define him to his epiphany that he can be a good man. A man that can love and is worthy of love.
Livy is strong willed and fierce. She will not allow societal restraints determine what she does. She is in a constant battle between love and independence. All the while she stays true to herself. I loved her total allegiance and all encompassing love for Ben.
All the secondary characters were strong and well written. Especially Charlie. Charlie knows who she is and what she wants. She is a mentor and confidante. I liked Charlie for her sense of justice and loyalty to her fellow women.
The platonic friendship between the two main characters was haunting and beautiful at the same time. The friendship defined both their lives. Watching the platonic love blossom into romantic love was breathtaking. Both characters had such an emotional journey. Ben’s hatred of himself was palpable. But coupled with that is Livy’s desire for his salvation.
The plot was stunning. It floated through a long period of time. There was backstory through flashbacks, it wasn’t redundant and filled in the gaps. It showcased the beauty of the love from the couple both platonic and romantic. A slow burn, it moved at a good pace with plenty of story to fill in when the two main characters were not together. The secondary characters were vivid and three dimensional.
I loved everything about this book! It was haunting, even tragic at times. At other times it was an extremely passionate love affair. It is a very strong start to a new series. If you enjoy slow burn, intricate, and passionate reads about redemption with a great happily ever after, this book is for you!
There are so many things to enjoy about Ms. Callaway's books: truly unique heroes and heroines, swoon-worthy romances, and oft times fascinating plot/intrigue... One thing I especially love about her books is that the heroines are strong women; they know what they want, and in this story, Livvy was no exception. I appreciated the push and pull of her relationship with Ben as he struggled to make sense of his transforming feelings. It felt real. Their blossoming love was so sweet and heartfelt, and when they came together, it was supa spicy!!! (Just the way I like my historical romances! Woooeee! Break out those fans, ladies!) Note: this one is the beginning of a new series, but the heroines are the offspring from her earlier books. You don't have to read the other ones to enjoy this one, but it does give the story an extra bit of special when her previous characters make brief appearances! Overall: LOVED IT, and can't wait for the next one! September is just too far away!
