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
    "Excellent Historical Romance"

    The story in this audiobook brings a breath of fresh air to the genre. What might appear at first glance to be a "been there done that" storyline for a historical romance (an upper-class woman who is unappreciated by her family but whose loyalty to them comes before her own happiness and a hero who is determined to have revenge upon that family but finds himself conflicted when he falls for the heroine) is turned into something unexpected by above average writing and atypical characterizations. Although I found the hero to be a bit idealized (he has surprisingly modern-seeming sensibilities) that was offset by the fact that he certainly had flaws and was a very well-developed character. The interactions between the protagonists was fun to read and the external forces at play in keeping them apart were unique.

    The narration was above average and I was surprised (and vastly disappointed) to find only two other audiobooks narrated by Rebecca De Leeuw on Audible. Her character differentiation was excellent, her voice is very pleasant, and her ability to traverse the entire emotional spectrum in both male and female character voices without over-dramatizing was stellar.

    Story
    "COURTNEY, COURTNEY, COURTNEY - YOU DID IT AGAIN"

    Excellent Victorian family saga of revenge vs. love with brilliant characters, a few twists to a great storyline and touching verbal interactions between the two lovers Ash and Margaret.

    This is 'technically' book 1, followed by Unlocked - Margaret's friend Elaine's story, Unclaimed - Ash's brother Mark's story and Unraveled - Ash's brother Smite's story but they could each be a stand alone book.

    Worth a credit? C.M.'s books never disappoint me so it's a big YUMMY YES.

    "Reviews are right"

    I did so love this story and Ash's commitment and loyalty to Margarent Ann. Absolutely perfectly done away from the Norm, I would like to here a second book about the other too handsome brothers Mark and the other one who name fails me with his extremely cool self. I loved the ending and must admit I was in favor of Ash just giving up on Margarent.
    Write another soon.

    Story
    "Wow! What a winner! LOVED EVERYTHING about it!"

    I have not read the print, but the narrator was OUTSTANDING...added so much to the experience. I was surprised to see other narrators used by Milan.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Unveiled?

    Margaret's realization that Ash deserved her loyalty.


    What does Rebecca De Leeuw bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    Excellent characterisations, passion, emotion, thoughtful pauses and intonations.


    Any additional comments?

    Absolutely fantastic character development. I couldn't wait to listen!

    "I loved it!"
    What did you love best about Unveiled?

    I loved the story ! Coutney's style in writing is most artistic in describing the setting, environment, feelings and emotions. I really admire her writing style , an intriguing combination of elegance, sensuality, and humor.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The main hero character


    Which character – as performed by Rebecca De Leeuw – was your favorite?

    It's first book for this narration. She was really good. She needs to work more on making the characters more alive. But not ad at all. She performed Ash Turner best


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Interesting question !!!!!! Hmmmm ... It has to be the title !!! I love the titles of the who,e series

    Story
    "I was kidnapped by this book!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Unveiled to be better than the print version?

    Rebecca De Leeuw has now become my favorite narrator. She is masterful in this performance.


    What other book might you compare Unveiled to and why?

    I was as captivated by this book as I was by Flowers from the Storm by Laura Kinsale. High praise indeed!


    What does Rebecca De Leeuw bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Ms. De Leeuw drew me into the book in the first few minutes.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Absolutely! I had to pull myself away from it in order to do things like, go to work!

    "Lovely romance....in a riveting story"

    This book is great....it's not perfect....but I love Ash and Margret's relationship and the path it takes.

    The narrator was very good I liked her female voices and her male voices.

    I did get a little bit tired of the constant father / daughter relationship in the beginning I mean it seemed like there was a lot of repeating. It was the same conversation every time they had one and once I knew they had the relationship they had I didn't need it to be beat into my head anymore.

    I also felt like Ash's relationship with Mark was a little annoying the beginning it was kind of the same thing it was just a constant beating and are headed that Ash was doing everything for his brother and his brother was being a jerk about it.

    I loved near the end when Margaret told her father what "how it was going to be" it was great!

    All this being said, I loved this book! In the beginning I was annoyed with some things....but once I got over those things....I couldn't put it down! There were some really great aspects of this book that made the story really deep and interesting.

    I got this book on a special sale...but I think it is for sure credit worthy!

    Story
    "I laughed & cried several times... Wonderful."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I do not usually get so invested in the books I listen to that I laugh and cry out loud. The characters and the story touched me so deeply. I loved this book. I love a brave hero and heroine. This had both.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Ash and Margaret both for different reasons.


    What about Rebecca De Leeuw’s performance did you like?

    She is wonderful. You can just get lost in the story with her reading.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I cried and laughed. The best of both worlds.


    Any additional comments?

    I cannot wait to listen to the next books in this series.

    Story
    "Overall a 4, great narrator"

    First the narration was really good, wish this narrator had more books recorded. Enjoyed the story but got frustrated with Margaret, and what she tolerated from her family. I suppose for that time period it would have been difficult to do anything else. Still it was harder for me to like her than Ash. I did get tired of hearing 'Ash, Ash, Ash' over and over again either in her thoughts or in dialog! There were some interesting twists in this. Not a 'deep' book by any means. But that is not what I wanted. I've only listened to one other book by this author, enjoyed that one more. I will look for others by her. This was worth a credit.

    What did you love best about Unveiled?

    Sweet and firm love.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Both Heroine and Hero, the support described by the Author that the Heroe gives the Heroine is a work of art.

    I did listen to it in one sitting, and cant wait for Unraveled and Unlocked.


    Any additional comments?

    ACX we are waiting for some more of Courtney Milan's books.
