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.

    "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.

    "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.

    "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.

    "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.

    Due to being on the road hours most days, I'm an avid Audible fan! I live vicariously through the stories as the miles pass.

    Any additional comments?

    Interesting story, nice twists, romantic. What really impressed me and made it come to life though was the narration by Ms. De Leeuw. Her characters and emotion and perfect timing made it simply wonderful. Looking for more books narrated by her! Mrs. B.

    Story
    "Wordy"
    Would you try another book from Courtney Milan and/or Rebecca De Leeuw?

    No.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    It was OK, predictable.


    What three words best describe Rebecca De Leeuw’s voice?

    Affected. Her voice was grating at times, trying too hard to portray a snobbish affectation. Voices of different characters sounded the same. She does have a clear, easy to understand narration.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    I was disappointed in this book, given the positive reviews. I liked it enough to finish it, and enjoyed parts of it. There were excruciatingly long passages of characters' thoughts, many times repeating the same thoughts/worries throughout the book. Ash was likeable, but way too good to be believable. Margaret had no backbone; the scenes with her father made me wonder why she bothered. The premise was a good one, plot was interesting, but characterizations, repetitions, and sleep-inducing internal monologues made this a 3 star read at best.

    "Don't know which was worse--narrator or story"

    There was not one character I found likable--she was too spineless, he was too nice, and all their family members were horrid.

    There was not one part of the story I found likable--They fell in love immediately, I got tired of hearing about his disability, I got tired of her putting off telling him who she was (though it would have been obvious to even a blind man,) I got tired of all their repetitious internal dialog, and I got tired of looking for even a hint of humor and finding none.

    Narrator was unbelievably dull.

    Story
    "Glorious hero!!!"

    I absolutely LOVE Ash. He is everything I've ever wanted in a man and then some. Extremely protective, kind, and generous. He makes sacrifices for his loved ones at his own expense and loves them to no end. At the same time he is strong and protective, he has his tender side that provoked so many emotions in me.

    The book had a few very funny lines that jerk non expected spurts of LOL moments. Initially I was not as engaged in the book. But as the story continued, I became more and more invested in it. I can not say enough how lovely this book was or how profoundly it touched me, but I can say I hope you will enjoy it as much as I did and if not you'll still walk away completely satisfies. Finally, a man with a sense of duty, honor, and generosity!
