I had forgotten what a good book it is.
A. Taylor
Both "Aunt" Leticia with her "natural" turbans, and Ferdie with his poems, bring additional charm and lightness to the story.

He needed to have true healing and to find love again.

Morgan Blakely, Marquis of Clayton: With a soul as dark as his raven black hair, England's most notorious spy had finally discovered a means of revenge against the man who betrayed him on the battlefields of France. That 'means' was a lovely, blonde haired girl who just might pass as the long lost Lady Caroline, rightful heir to the Wilburton fortune.. if he could convince the cheeky rag doll to trust his risky scheme.
Caroline Monday: From the dank and gloomy Glynde orphanage, to serving as an attendant to a dotty old lady and an ever rhyming dwarf, Caroline had survived with her spirit intact. Now a stranger who hid his hurts behind a handsome, impassive face offered her not only the rainbow, but he pot of gold at the end of the it. Caroline didn't believe Morgan Blakely's claim that she was really a lost heiress. Yet suddenly she wanted a chance to become that lady with all her heart.. in order to find a way to win Morgan's for her own.

Morgan Blakely doesn't much care if his uncle's deathbed confession is for real or just a fever talking, because if he can make others believe it, it will provide the means for revenge against the family that has cost his own so much. Armed with information (accurate or not), Morgan sets out to locate the long lost "Lady Caroline" whose parents were murdered when she was just a child.

Caroline Monday's has not been an easy life. If nothing else, growing up in an orphanage and finding work in an asylum, she's proven herself to be a survivor. When Morgan Blakely arrives at the asylum and presents an opportunity that will allow her to leave the asylum for good and, in the end, be independent, she jumps at the chance. Her one stipulation is that she gets to bring her friends along with her.

Morgan and Caroline each have an agenda but have to work together so that they can each achieve their desired result but when feelings start developing and sparks start to fly, will they be able to put aside their feelings and get the job done? Will all be lost when the truth of Caroline's identity is discovered?

Once again Ms. Michaels has created fun, lovable characters. Even the secondary character are endearing. Both "Aunt" Leticia with her "natural" turbans, and Ferdie with his poems, bring additional charm and lightness to the story.

The Bride of the Unicorn is a reissue but whether you've read it before or not, if you're looking for a good, enjoyable read, The Bride of the Unicorn won't disappoint.

I really don't. This novel was amazing. It was disturbing. It was heartbreaking. It was healing - or perhaps cauterizing. One thing is for sure, this is not a light, fluffy Regency Romance. Do not be fooled by the cover. This book is ridiculously deep, convoluted, corruptive, and positively one of the best novels I have read in a long time. The writing was simply unparalleled. Truly, even amongst her own works, this book rises several levels above. The sordid mysteries are extremely sordid and mysterious. They are also paralyzingly tragic. The ending isn't so much of an HEA as it is a relief, a catharsis. A Masterpiece. I love and hate books like this because finishing them is akin to coming down off a high. It's an emotional undertaking that leaves one drained. But I will only read it again.

My only disappointment was with Caroline. I felt like her love was used against her and she never triumphed over it. I understand that love isn't selfish, Morgan even came to understand that in the end, though somewhat too late, but I felt in Caroline' s case that perhaps it wasn't so healthy. And maybe that's the price one has to pay to love the Dark Hero, the vigilante who is hellbent on personal vengeance. But it isn't easy or comfortable watching a wonderful heroine pay that price and seemingly get nothing in return.

The characters were all, to a one, amazing. From our Dark Hero to our Innocent Heroine, to Ferdie and Aunt Letty, to Peaches. Richard, the Duke, the Earl, even Uncle James. They were all extremely well crafted and perfectly brought to life. The epilogue was sweet though not meaty enough by half. I almost want a sequel, but I guess there would be no practical way to do that with how we left the characters. Still, I ache for Richard. He deserves more than he got.

I read this book several years ago and recently re-read it. I had forgotten what a good book it is. The plot is fresh, with twists and turns, but not overdone, and unlike many historical romances, it is semi-believable. It's a great book and well worth the price.
