Unmasked Heart by Vanessa Riley is an entertaining historical romance. Ms. Riley has delivered a well-written book. The characters are awesome. Gaia and William's story is loaded with drama, humor and spice and quite a bit of angst. I enjoyed reading Unmasked Heart and look forward to reading more by Vanessa Riley. Unmasked Heart is book 1 of the Challenge of the Soul Series but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.
