The Marquess of Hawksfield’s lineage is impeccable and his title coveted, but Archer Croft is as far from his indulgent peers as he can get. His loathing for the beau monde has driven him to don a secret identity and risk everything in order to steal their riches and distribute them to the less fortunate.

Lady Briannon Findlay embraces her encounter with the Masked Marauder, a gentleman thief waylaying carriages from London to Essex. The marauder has stirred Brynn’s craving for adventure, and she discovers an attraction deeper than the charming thief’s mask.

Brynn is a revelation, matching Archer in intelligence, wit, and passion. Stubborn and sensuous in equal measure, she astonishes him at every turn, but when someone sinister impersonates Archer’s secret personality, and a murder is committed, Archer begins to think he doesn’t stand a fighting chance without her.

Lady Briannon Findlay has suffered from weak lungs all her life.  This has meant her family has a bad habit of trying to keep her wrapped in cotton wool ,and panicking at the slightest sign of of a cough. When she gets the chance she escapes to ride bare back astride her beloved Apollo in boys clothes .
Lord Archer Croft,  The Marquess of Hawksfield is the arrogant and moody son of the Dancing Duke.  His father's excesses of drinking,  gambling and countless mistresses are depleting the family coffers.  That however is not the reason for Archer's escapades as the Masked Marauder. 
This is a wonderful historical romp.  The antics of our hero and heroine keep us thoroughly entertained throughout.  We have a little added spice with the danger of discovery.  It is also a nice full length novel that gives us a real chance to get right into it. 
I loved ever page.
