MASKED DESIRE The Masked Arcana #2 by Alana Delacroix Book Tour and Giveaway :)
Masked Arcana #2
Genre: Paranormal Romance
A Perfect Disguise
As security chief of the supernaturals’
ruling council, Michaela Chui has seen more than her fair share of
disaster. For centuries, she’s survived through caution and
strategy. But when the only human councilor is viciously murdered,
Michaela knows the coincidences that keep blocking her investigation
are a sure sign of bad things to come. She needs answers fast. And
her only ally is Cormac Redoak: wild, unpredictable, unreliable—and
worse, distractingly attractive.
A Hidden Truth
exile from the court of the Fairy Queen, Cormac has all the
experience with careful strategy and veiled intentions he can stand.
But he also has the fey talent for getting his way, and he’s sure
his way lies with Michaela’s. No matter that she can change her
lovely face at will; there’s a clarity to her being that he’d
know anywhere. Working with her will be temptation and frustration
bound together. Somehow, though, he must convince her to trust
him—without revealing the secrets he dares never share . . .
Michaela locked the car door and was
checking the handle when a soft, low growl came from behind her.
“Councilor. You’re here early.”
Not now. It was too early in the
morning. She steeled herself to face Cormac Redoak, exiled fey,
special ambassador to the Pharos Council, and world-class pain.
“Ambassador,” she said briskly, heaving her bag over her
“May I take that for you?” Even
after centuries away from the fey homeland, he still had a bit of an
accent, almost but not quite Irish.
“No.” She walked towards the
door. Although they had known each other for decades, she’d had few
conversations with him, and in fact tended to avoid him. Not because
of the wild rumors that surrounded his exile from the fey court or
because she’d been on the receiving end of more than one of his
inquisitions when she’d objected to his schemes. He was too erratic
for her. Wild. Unstable. Even his eyes refused to stay a single
color. Right now they were a light jade but could easily change to
gray or brown depending on his mood.
This criticism was grossly
hypocritical coming from a masquerada and she knew it. Her eyes, like
the rest of her, could be transformed in a breath to become part of
any masque she chose. That was the point, though. While Cormac was at
the mercy of his emotions, she needed to keep perfect control at all
times. Failure—if her masque slipped and humans witnessed a
shift—would result in a breach of the Law. Worse, she could lose
her natural self in a sea of other personalities: the dreaded
convergence. Cormac said what he wanted, did what he wanted, and
damned the consequences. The ambassador was not a man who accepted
limits to his desires and it made her wary.
“I want to speak about our
discussion the other day,” he said. She didn’t bother to look at
him. “By discussion you mean when you attempted, and failed, to
humiliate me in front of half the Council?”
He made an airy details, details
gesture. “I asked for a simple clarification.”
“About a subject you had no
business with and at a meeting to which you were not invited.” She
reached out to pull the door open but he moved in front of her with
the fluid grace typical of the fey. For a moment she breathed in his
unique pine scent—the one thing she enjoyed about him. Then she
silently brushed by with a nod of thanks, mind already on the day’s
agenda. She had about ten minutes before she was due to meet Madden,
enough time for a few emails and to re-check her calendar.
“I assumed my invitation was lost.
Luckily Hiro told me about it.”
She kept walking. “Which he also
had no business doing. We have meeting procedures for a reason.”
“Procedures are for the masses.”
He paused when they reached her office door. “Look, Michaela, my
point remains valid.”
Michaela opened the door. “As I
said before—” Her voice trailed off as she flicked on the light.
Cormac peered in, then tried to block
the door. “You don’t want to see this.”
Did the man not remember she was the
Pharos security chief? She shoved him aside. “That’s Hiro. In my
Cormac stood beside her, his cool
skin brushing her hand. “It was Hiro,” he corrected. “It’s

Who Can Wear Any Face
doesn’t run from much. As a former investigative reporter now
working PR for Toronto’s supernaturals, what she hasn’t seen
mostly isn’t worth seeing. But the assignment to “rebrand” Eric
Kelton’s out-of-control alter egos has her on edge from the start.
Kelton is the heirarch of the Masquerada, beings able to change their
face—their entire persona—on a whim. Eric’s charisma muddles
her instincts. How can she trust a man who can become anybody?
Woman Without A Past
never met anyone like Caro, with her lightning wit and uncanny
insight. But desirable as she is, he’d be a fool to let her near.
Struggling to hide the sudden loss of his powers, Eric can’t risk
becoming entangled with a woman who scorns her supernatural side and
claims not to play politics. The enemies on her trail are strong,
clever, and vicious. And when they force Eric and Caro together, the
fallout could shatter far more than two hearts . . .
