Cover Reveal :: Devils Masquerade Book 3 of Royal Pains

Royal Pains Cover Reveal for September 16 posting

Today we are revealing the new covers for Nina Mason’s Royal Pains, an erotic series set in Scotland and

England during the Restoration period (the latter half of the 17th century, for those who don’t know).

Ms. Mason decided to put new, sexier covers on the series to celebrate the launch of book three, THE

DEVIL’S MASQUERADE. All three new covers, the blurbs for the books, and the buy links follow:

Royal Pains, Book One


Innocence lost. Paradise found.

Maggie York, a convent-raised foundling, knows the Duke of Dunwoody’s

sexual tastes are a shade or two darker than most, but marries him

anyway—partly because she has no other prospects and partly because, try

as she might, she can’t seem to stop fantasizing about her dashing rake

of a guardian.

Robert Armstrong, the duke, is a Roman Catholic whose extreme

devotions as a child warped his desires as a man. He’s also a slave to

the times in which he lives–and to his king. Everything he is,

everything he holds dear, depends on staying in Charles II’s good

graces. Unfortunately, Maggie isn’t the bride the king selected for him.

Now, to make amends, the duke must either whore his wife or be reduced

to a penniless and unprotected commoner at a time when Catholics are

persona non grata in Great Britain.

Buy it now!

Royal Pains, Book Two


The tawdry tale of the Duke and Duchess of Dunwoody continues…

Maggie Armstrong, the long-lost illegitimate daughter of the heir

presumptive to the throne, is bedeviled by her husband’s limited

definition of fidelity. After observing him in a ménage à trois at the

court of King Charles II, she is determined to bring him around to her

way of thinking—

by any means necessary.

Robert doesn’t mind being punished for his transgressions. Rather,

he enjoys being whipped, especially by his beloved bride. Unfortunately,

her heart might not belong to him alone. His younger brother, who he’d

sent abroad to clear the way for himself, is coming home sooner than

expected, and Maggie’s feelings for Hugh may not be as dead as her

husband had hoped.

Both duke and duchess soon learn, to their peril, Hugh Armstrong is

not the honorable man they’d been led to believe. Insanely jealous of

his brother’s situation, Hugh will stop at nothing to strip Robert of

all he holds dear—including his life.

But the real danger for Robert and Maggie is not the villainous

Marquess, but the growing friction betwixt Catholics and Protestants in

Restoration Era Great Britain.

Can their love survive the trials that await them?

Royal Pains, Book Three


Beware the devil in disguise…

The year is now

1685 and Maggie’s father has just been crowned King of Great Britain,

but that doesn’t mean trouble is over for the Duke and Duchess of

Dunwoody. Rather than cool the flames of hatred between Papists and

Protestants, the coronation of a Catholic monarch has only added

accelerant to the already raging blaze. Two-faced devils lurk in every

corner of the royal court, as do diseases with the power to kill and

maim. When Robert falls prey to the smallpox virus, it looks as though

Maggie will lose the two people most precious to her–her beloved

husband and their only child–the son she bore three months before after

five years of heartbreaking miscarriages and stillbirths. The one

person in London who can help save her son demands a steep price in

exchange her services. Will Maggie trade Robert’s hard-won fidelity to

save her only child…or offer the apothecary an even more scandalous
