One of the world’s most beloved stories as it has never been told before, Unmasqued is a novel of breathtaking historical erotica. But its youngest and brightest star knows something no one else does-the truth.
For in the darkness she thri. For in the darkness she thrills to the deep velvet timbre of his arousing voice, and quivers to the soft strokes of his leather-gloved fingers.
Condemned to the catacombs below, Erik has desired his obsession from the shadows, careful to keep his identity, and his secret, in the dark. Only he understands Christine’s extraordinary talents and her beauty.
Only he can pleasure her like no man has before. But his sensual power comes with a price-and a risk to everyone who stands between them. For Christine too is succumbing to her most forbidden and dangerous desires-and to the Phantom who’s making them all come true. Paperbackpages.

Desenmascarzdo did the author never actually read the book? Giry is the keeper of box five! She’s NOT the dance teacher! God, why would you ripoff Webber’s crappy version? She was the ballet instructor. See 1 question about Unmasqued…. Lists with This Book. Apr 05, Katie babs rated it did not like it Shelves: Some books are like car accidents.
You stop, look, and continue on your way, but deep down you really want to know what happens next. I can only imagine that Gaston Leroux is spinning in his grave. Most people know the classic story of the chorus girl who becomes a singing sensation due to the Angel of Music. Her Angel is actually a facially scarred man who hides in the d Some books are like car accidents.
Her Angel is actually a facially scarred man who hides in the depths of the Paris opera house and has become obsessed with desenmmascarado student to the point of near madness. After the opera’s resident diva is scared by the opera ghost, Christine Daee is given the opportunity to become a star. As soon as she completes her first performance, her teacher comes to her not as an angel, but as a man Erik, as she comes to know him, shows his appreciation many times over, including the use of some interesting props – a mirror, a harp – to introduce her into the delights of his new way of teaching.
Christine wants to know gsle Erik looks like under his mask, but when she eventually takes it off, is horrified by what she sees. A multitude of other characters are intended to add flavor to the story.
Desenmascaraddo Giry, the dancing teacher of the chorus, is a blatant nymphomaniac. In order to keep Erik a secret, she gives her body to both of the managers of the opera.
And then there are the new owners of the opera, the Changy brothers. When Raoul, the younger brother, sees Christine on the stage, he quickly becomes enamored and wants to marry her. Little brother Raoul – who desrnmascarado the original version of the story is the hero – will do whatever big edsenmascarado wants.
Christine finally comes to the conclusion that she loves Erik – or rather the fantastic nookie they share. One specific scene in particular disturbed me: Raoul also tries to debase Christine by forcing her to perform a certain sexual act on him I found no redeeming qualities to any of these people, even Christine. She endures constant sexual traumas; her mind says “no”, but her body says “yes”. And Erik, who should be the most seductive of them all, is so one-dimensional that if he had disappeared from the story, I would have not missed him in the least.
There are not many books that I can say have made my stomach turn, but Unmasqued is definitely one of them. If Gale had written a more contained story between Christine and Erik – even if Christine was also involved with Raoul at the same time – I would have been more accepting. I am a fan of erotica in general but this was an unsettling, never-ending sadomasochistic tale filled with amoral characters.
I will at least give Gale some credit for trying to give the fans who always wanted Christine and Erik to be together their ultimate fantasy.

Nov 05, Amanda rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Read this a second time and still love it! I loved this book. Not only am I fan in general of erotica, I’m especially a fan of well-written erotica.
However, it was my love of the actual Phantom story and my long held belief that Christine truly was in love with Erik, that she simply wasn’t strong enough to deal with the intensity of her feelings. My only irritation with the book and it wasn’t even enough to ta Update: My only irritation with the book and it wasn’t even enough to take it down a star was that I would get to an especially exciting part with Erik and Christine, and then I’d have to wait a chapter while the author switched to some scene with one of the other characters.
But in hindsight, it may have just added to the book’s appeal. Loved it and am floating on C9 because someone finally saw the same general story I did. Jan 29, Chelsea chelseadolling reads rated it did not like it. I mean, this was terrible. But did anyone honestly expect anything else? Dec 23, MAP rated it did not like it Shelves: It was so bad, it hurt me physically and emotionally.
I was embarassed for it, I was embarassed for myself for buying it, I was embarassed for the paper it was printed on. And that’s a problem. Yeah, that’s this book, pretty much. Sexy people having sexytimes, and if we want to throw a mask on one and claim it’s POTO, sure why not, people will buy that schlock. Ya know, POTO is pretty naturally erotic on its own – that’s how it managed to spin off into so many different directions.
You really DON’T have to try this hard. Goza de ese otro chico. No me arrepiento de haberle descartado, libros asi no quiero leer. Jul 05, Melanie rated it really liked it Shelves: I love love love PoTO!!!
But I always wished Christine had ended up with Erik instead of Raoul who always seemed kind of weak compared to the passionate Phantom. Which is why I really enjoyed this book. The sex scenes were very hot, and well written.
I kind of liked the fact that you had sex scenes between secondary characters as well as between the MCs. The only thing I didn’t enjoy is how she still gets turned on by Raoul, and even a little by Philippe. It’s especially because of her reaction to the latter that I bumped it down from 4.
Unmasqued: An Erotic Novel of The Phantom of The Opera
Jan 22, Shannon The Show Stopper rated it it was amazing. If you’re a fan coletfe erotica, you should probably read this book. If you’re a fan of the stroy Phantom of The Opera, you should probably read this book. If you’re a fan of both, well then, you MUST read this book. You’ll probably never look at a harp quite the same way ;-D Colette Gale is one of my favorite authors of erotic fiction.
Taking my love for desnmascarado stories and putting an erotic spin on them What’s not to love? Mar 08, Robin rated it it was ok Shelves: I read in reviews that the ending is different from the stage version, which is why I decided to give it a try. I never liked the way the show ended I always wanted her to end up with the Phantom. I really was looking for more content dealing with Christine coletye Erik’s relationship, but not like this.
