Masquerade

Author: Janet Dailey

A New Orleans heiress awakens with memories she’s afraid to trust in this New York Times bestseller by a master of romantic suspense. One minute, beautiful Louisiana shipping heiress Remy Jardin was being swept away by the uninhibited party madness of Carnival in France’s Côte d’Azur. The next, she wakes up in Nice, suffering from amnesia after a brutal attack, her identity and memories lost in a dizzying eddy of confusion. Found by her family and rushed back to her home in New Orleans, Remy feels neither relief nor calm—only dread. For Remy is surrounded by strangers. Her father claims to have Remy’s best interests at heart, yet he seems too anxious to have her committed. Her conniving brother is filled with cryptic warnings. And what is she to make of slippery and handsome Cole Buchanan, CEO of the family’s Louisiana shipping line? He claims they were once passionately involved, but his secrets suggest something devious. Now, as Cole claws at her heart anew, Remy wonders if he’s just another soul she dare not trust, or the only man whose declarations of love can save her.
