Okay, I'll admit it.  I am a sucker for romance novels that involve two people meeting while attending a masked ball or something of that nature.  I just finished When Seducing A Duke which followed this idea and now I want to read more like it.

Any recommendations for books that involve H/H is masks and not knowing one another (or maybe they do but won't admit it!) Historical, Contemporary, Erotica, I don't care...I'm just looking for this kind of story line!  Thanks!

Lady of Sin by Madeline Hunter -- But it was not your typical masquerade ball. It was a wild party for bored members of the ton, looking for some illicit thrills, but everyone was masked to protect their reputations from scandal. Very good book.

The Raven Prince - Elizabeth Hoyt - doesn't involve a masked ball but... it involves one of the more unique "masked" scenarios I have read. I LOVED the book.

My Lady Notorious by Jo Beverley - I think, though I don't remember the set-up really well. I didn't like this one, but it's pretty popular, so I'll mention it anyway.

I agree with Margaret M.  The Raven Prince.  I defy you to find a hotter masked scene.  Muy caliente.

Another with a mask but not a ball - Secrets of the Night by Jo Beverley. The woman loves masks. ;-)

Thanks!  I've read The Raven Prince before, but I may need to do a reread!  I loved that story!  Thanks for the suggestions everyone!
