- Customer Reviews:
"the conflict is utterly new and refreshing for the genre... Sebastian masters the plotting and emotions of an individual coming to grips with her gender queer identity, while also not falling into the trap of melodrama or maudlin after-school special. "--Entertainment Weekly
"Rising romance star Sebastian launches her Regency Imposter series on a high note with another impeccably crafted, lusciously sensual love story that also gracefully--and quite cleverly--alludes to her previous, brilliant male-male Regency historical romances."--Booklist
"Sebastian gives readers a beautiful, emotional romance between two people who are thoroughly perfect for each other; Alistair's response to Robin's revelations is as powerful and poignant as the couple's happily ever after is triumphant."--Sarah MacLean, Washington Post
"A witty romantic romp from start to finish with an ending that will make you smile and sigh, proving true love will always find a way."
--Valerie Bowman, author of The Right Kind of Rogue
"This book is a pleasure that cuts deep. It's a slow-motion stained-glass heartbreak, all sparkling color and velvet shadow and sharp edges slicing you without mercy."--Seattle Review of Books
"Brimming with warmth, laughter, and passion, this book is an absolute delight. The honesty and bravery of the lovers made me literally cheer out loud, and Robin is now among my favorite romance leads of all time. I adored every little bit of this novel."
--Katharine Ashe, USA Today bestselling author of The Duke
"Cat Sebastian sent me on an emotional rollercoaster with Unmasked by the Marquess, an unforgettable tale of powerful love that overcomes the odds. I was hooked from page one and adored these characters as they fought for their HEA. If you haven't read Cat Sebastian, what are you waiting for?"--Lorraine Heath, New York Times bestselling author
From the Back Cover
The one you love . . . Robert Selby is determined to see his sister Louisa make an advantageous match. But he has two problems: the Selbys have no connections or money and Robert is really a housemaid named Charity Church. She's enjoyed every minute of her masquerade over the past six years, but she knows her pretense is nearing an end. Charity needs to see Louisa married well and then Robert Selby will disappear . . . forever.
May not be who you think . . . Alistair, Marquess of Pembroke, has spent years repairing the estate ruined by his wastrel father, and nothing is more important than protecting his fortune and name. He shouldn't be so beguiled by the charming young man who shows up on his doorstep asking for favors. And he certainly shouldn't be thinking of all the disreputable things he'd like to do to the impertinent scamp.
But is who you need . . . When Charity's true nature is revealed, Alistair knows he can't marry a scandalous woman in breeches, and Charity isn't about to lace herself into a corset and play a respectable miss. Can these stubborn souls learn to sacrifice what they've always wanted for a love that is more than they could have imagined?

Despite is limited resources Robert Selby is determined to launch his beautiful sister, Louisa, on the London season and see her comfortably settled. He needs someone powerful to lend their support to get things started and he intends to make use of a tenuous link with the staid and absolutely respectable Marquess of Pembroke to get that support.
When the Marquess agrees to help it is only to frustrate the plans of his fathers ex-mistress, and perhaps because spending time with the charming Robert becomes more and more appealing. The only problem is that Robert Selby died 2 years ago and unbeknownst to the Marquess, the young man that so intrigues him is a woman, Charity Church, friend and former maid to Robert, who is determined to secure the best match for his sister.
It is (minus the cross-dressing) all so gloriously Georgette Heyer, the early part of the book seems an affectionate homage to 'Frederica', one of my favourite Heyer novels. It is witty and sharp and a huge amount of fun. The characters were easy to love, the pompous marquess with a soft heart, and especially Charity, bold Charity, chancing her arm and completely out of her depth. The story was interesting and the unconventional romance was thrilling. It was a great read.
It's made me laugh, cry with laughter and just out right cry.
I found both intelligent resourceful Robin and prickly emotionally stunned Alistair delightful and their connection clear and believable.
Alistair being bisexual and Robin non binary ads a level of realism to this romance, as most people are more than 1s or 0s.
Their sparring is hilarious and their sex is very hot.
(I meant to just start it then have an early night, but ended up reading it in one sitting.)
