Review: Masked Possession (The Masked Arcana #1) by Alana Delacroix

A Man Who Can Wear Any Face

Caro Yeats 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?

A Woman Without A Past

Eric has 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 . . .

Masked Possession is an original and unique premise!  The world is slowly introduced and before you know it, you are immersed.

Caro is working for a PR firm which works with supernaturals.  All the personnel is arcana themselves so they are sympathetic to their issues.  Caro is assigned to work with Eric, a Masquerada. The Masquerada are able to take on different appearances and personalities called masks.  Caro is half Masquerada but does not embrace her abilities having never been able to trust them. She keeps it under wraps.

Eric and Caro have an immediate connection.  She doesn’t feel she can trust him, and he doesn’t understand his instant feelings for her. Slowly they build trust with one another.

Eric is the ruling heirarch of America and his throne is under attack. His enemies are all over.  As he tries to figure out how to deal with that, his immediate issue is his masks. He took too many masks on and now they threaten to consume him. Caro was brought in to help him.

I really liked how this story flowed.  The Masquerada is a new element to PNR I have not read before.  I was intrigued. I also liked seeing the different arcana working together-Vamps, Fey, Werewolves, etc. That kept the story flowing for me. There was drama and battles and some romance to boot! I would’ve liked a bit more in the romance department, but I liked it just the same!

Masked Possession is the first book of the Masked Arcana series and I am hooked!  Masquerada are an interesting species and I look forward to reading more about them!
