Unveiled by Courtney Milan

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….

 

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….

This is my first Courtney Milan book, and boy does she know how to put beautiful words on the page. This will definitely not be my last read by her.

I was most impressed with the way Milan delivered the blows in the story. She distracts with wonderfully crafted writing and quick dialogue, and then bam! things start coming to a head that you didn’t think were going to happen for pages and pages. You don’t know when anything is going to happen, and you learn quickly that you will never guess how she’s going to do it. You can’t block the surprise.

My favorite part of story was the vulnerabilities Milan gave the main characters, and how she used them in the story. To watch them at work was something else. Margaret and Ash are so vulnerable to each other it was like watching two young teenagers fall in love through innocent flirtation, and small fits of giggles. All the while you are terrified that at any moment they are going to use those vulnerabilities to strike out at one another. Which you expect, what with all the vengeance, deception, and human determination spinning around the characters. It’s a whirlwind.

The entire story is laced with a build up that catapults in one direction, but lands in a spectacular other place. And in the end there’s a bit of something all of us can take home:  Paint your canvas, and never let anyone hold the sheet over it. You must be unveiled.

Kudos to the author…

  1. Courtney Milan is an auto-buy for me. Her debut was brilliant. As in, “Why do I even bother?” brilliant. Really looking forward to this one.

  2. I was very impressed with this book, and I believe it’s going to be a series. I think. I hope so. I’ll definitely be reading.
