Publisher's Summary

He was her bitterest enemy….

Ash Turner has waited a lifetime to seek revenge on the man who ruined his family—and now the time for justice has arrived. At Parford Manor, he intends to take his place as the rightful heir to the dukedom and settle an old score with the current duke once and for all. But instead he finds himself drawn to a tempting beauty who has the power to undo all his dreams of vengeance….

And her dearest love

Lady Margaret knows she should despise the man who’s stolen her fortune and her father’s legacy—the man she’s been ordered to spy on in the guise of a nurse. Yet the more she learns about the new duke, the less she can resist his smoldering appeal. Soon Margaret and Ash find themselves torn between old loyalties—and the tantalizing promise of passion.

    Story
    "Narrator not a good match"
    What did you like best about Unveiled? What did you like least?

    Like the story. The narrator sounds old for this story. Makes it difficult to relate to the heroine since she is a young woman.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Rebecca De Leeuw?

    Rosalyn Landor, Carolyn Morris or Susan Durendan


    Was Unveiled worth the listening time?

    The story got me to finish the book but only because I want to know what happen.


    Any additional comments?

    I love this series but I didn't get the other two audiobooks. I would rather read it myself.

    "Not enough action"
    Any additional comments?

    I love a good romance but there has to be action to the story as well. This was too much thinking, discussing, agonizing . . . and I did not connect with the heroine's reason to stay away.

    Story
    "A WONDERFUL DELIGHT!"

    It was such a delight to read/listen to a book from a gifted author like Courtney Milan. Her prose, writing style and ability to capture the emotional aspects of her characters was wonderful to experience. I also enjoyed the narrator, Rebecca De Leeuw, whom I thought helped bring this book to life.

    In Unveiled, the intricate themes of family, loyalty and attachment are explored at every angle. The hero, Ash Turner, was so appealing to me as he stood out as an enlightened figure in his era. The poverty he endured in his youth formed his work ethic and value system that was vastly different than what society dictated should be valued. The power of his character was found in his charisma, drive to overcome barriers, and his ability to value people for their own personal qualities.—WHAT A NOVEL CONCEPT IN THAT ERA! Also, Ash Turner is a classic first born who put the happiness and welfare of his siblings before anything else. He worked very hard to make up for the lost years of his brothers’ childhood and to fill the vacuum he saw in their lives. (I can’t wait to read both of Mark and Smite’s stories in the following books!)

    One of the finest pleasures is how he fell for his heroine, Lady Ana Margaret. Despite being enamored by Lady Ana (aka “Margaret”), the moment he set eyes on her, he did not account for the intense draw between himself and the daughter of the man he set out to destroy in order to avenge his family. The irony is that even though Ash served as the catalyst for the loss of Lady Ana’s position, dowry, friends, and mother (all within a year) something strings the leads together in an unlikely love match that is sure to devastate their families and society, alike.

    I love a romance story in which the hero pursues the heroine relentlessly. And, this is the case for Margaret and Ash. Ana Margaret learned to forgive and develop a perception that made her incredibly powerful, especially to her father and brothers who overlooked her and left her behind in their plans for the future. I love a story that empowers women in this era!

    I also loved how the plot was so unique and character-driven. The resolutions to the conflict in family affairs were sewed up pretty nicely in the end. My only complaint is that I was hoping for a more beefy epilogue. I had a lot more questions, but since this is a series, I am confident I will hear more about Ash and Ana Margaret in the books that follow. Great read/listen!

    Story
    "A nice start to an HR series"

    Rating: 3.5 Stars

    The story started out slow for me with the characters being almost uninteresting and the story line blasé. It didn't quite pick up until half way through, but when it finally did I ended up really liking the characters and the way the story and ending turned out.

    Ash Turner is ruthless and focused on his endeavor to steal the dukedom inheritance from a heartless distant cousin, but what he lacks in finesse he makes up for in charisma. He is loyal and fierce in his love for his brothers and that later includes Lady Margaret. Lady Margaret, on the other hand, is strong-willed with a sharp-tongue and although she knows she should hate Ash for what he's done to her family, Ash wins her over with his kindness and sentiment.

    This was a heartbreaking story because the characters are damaged and try hard to be the better individual in the tale which helps as well as hurts their progress. The supporting characters in this story were fascinating and I am intrigued enough that I've purchased the following two books.

    In addition to a great romantic tale, the bits and pieces within the story is smart and interesting. There are hints of a fanatically religious mother and an upbringing that may prove to be devastating and shocking.

    Narration:
    Narrator: Rebecca De Leeuw
    Performance: 4/5
    Speed: 1.5x
    De Leeuw did a decent job with the narration. Accents remained pretty consistent and the tone and pace were easy to follow at the speed I listened to her read at.

    "Read this book do not listen to it."

    I can't finish this book. The narrator is ruining a potentially good book. I cant say whether its good or not since I cant finish it yet. I will download on my kindle and read it. Sorry Rebecca De Leeuw, but you should not narrate books. I hate leaving this review and hope the author reads it and gets a new narrator. Try Moira Quirk or Ashford McNabb, they do a fantastic job narrating historical romance novels.

    "Well thoughtout storyline"

    This one had an interesting story. It wasn't my favourite, but it was good. The story was well thought out. Hidden identity themed historical romance.

    Story
    "So good I wish I could buy it twice!"
    What made the experience of listening to Unveiled the most enjoyable?

    This is a very rare find. A writer who writes a good story with fully fleshed out characters, and a reader who brings each moment to life. This book is up there with the best reads of Rosalyn Landor, and that's saying something. I enjoyed every moment, and stayed up long past my bedtime listening (which I hate to do since the book will then be over far to soon!)

    Ash is a character that is wholly original. A strong male lead who is sensible and doesn't lead with his ego. Very well done.

    I really wish Rebecca De Leeuw would have read more books available for me to buy. She's amazing. I will always look for books read by her.

    Highly recommended.

    "Didn't want it to end"

    The narrator was great, the story was passionate, Margaret was cool and Ash was so sexy.... Both of them trying to do what is right for their families yet they can't resist what is between them, I didn't want it to end, but it did so now I'm reading the next book about Ash's brother Mark which has started out very promising! Unveiled is well worth the credits and one that will go on my "Listen to again " list.

    "somewhat entertaining, but not great"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    add substance to the story line


    Did Rebecca De Leeuw do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    so-so


    Do you think Unveiled needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    no, it would just be "more of the same"


    Any additional comments?

    need to add more substance to the characters

    "Romance and Intrigue"

    Courtney Milan writes with depth and sensuality. The storyline draws you in and the characters are developed with interesting layers of vulernability. Add to that the rich and expressive voice of Rebecca De Leeuw and you've got a winner! I purchased the othe two books in the series and am enjoying those just as much as Unveiled.
