A must read for bodice ripper fans!
Kim Buelow
UNCONQUERED features an indomitable, intelligent heroine; exciting, fast-paced story that never lags; exotic locales; and very steamy love scenes.

In fact many of Small's books are not for you.

After reading the other reviews, I have to say that I really liked the book, except for one particular scene. When Miranda is forced into her extramarital relationships after going to Russia it is understandable. It is also reasonable that Jared becomes a rake after he believes Miranda is dead. However, the scene where Jared has sex with Gillian after he and Miranda are (happily) married is unnecessary. Yes, he feels terrible, and yes, she forgives him without question, but it was still disgusting. He could have said no or gotten the information without knowingly cheating on his wife. Ms. Small often has the characters engage in extramarital relations, but usually it is due to dire circumstances. I just really didn't like this scene. I'm surprised no one else has mentioned it.
But other than that (which happened fairly early on), I enjoyed the rest of the book, even if it did move sort of too quickly...
P.S. - My favorite Small book is "A Love for All Time." It starts in the middle of the O'Malley Saga, but since it is easy to read first.

I started to read the works of Bertrice Small back in the late seventies when she started to be published. When she started to write, the genre of historical romance had a love story that was written around historical events, generously served up with plenty of details, and tended to make the characters the center of the story, rather than the time and place. Sex, if and when it appeared, was more of the 'fade to next morning' variety rather than anything graphic.

Then came the seventies, and suddenly, historical romances got racy. Sex moved from the edges, and went far beyond what was to be found in most novels, unless they were of the sort found in certain adult bookstores. And Bertrice Small leapt into the genre with both feet and changed the standard.

Starting in the year 1811, this tells the story of Miranda and Jared Dunham, two very strong-willed lovers who meet through an arranged marriage, but manage to make a go of it. Miranda, barely above a child herself is resentful at having to marry before her twin, Amanda, can announce her own betrothal to an English lord. Miranda, naturally, doesn't want to marry anyone, deciding at the tender age of seventeen that she would much rather stay in her American home.

But when she returns to her home, the island of Wyndsong near Long Island, tragedy hits when her beloved father is killed in an accidental shooting. Worst still, it appears that she's going to marry the man who was partially responsible for the shooting -- his way 'of making things right' as it were.

Jared Dunham, Miranda's cousin and the new owner of Wyndsong Island, is one of those tall, dark, brooding heroes so common in romance novels. He's the younger son of a Massachusetts?

This was the very first Bertrice Small novel I'd read. I'm a big fan of hers and have read most of her books (I'm addicted to the O'Malley saga!). UNCONQUERED features an indomitable, intelligent heroine; exciting, fast-paced story that never lags; exotic locales; and very steamy love scenes. The only drawback is Jared Dunham. I know Miranda was forced into marriage to him, but come on! There was never a more arrogant, boorish Bertrice Small leading man. If I were Miranda, I would have gladly become part of Mirza Khan's harem and said adieu to Jared. Jared lost even more points when he accused Miranda of having brought upon herself all the terrible things that had happened to her in Russia, when in reality those things would never have happened if he hadn't gone there in the first place and forced her to come after him.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I was shocked by the other reviews. I love this book and consider it one of the best. Miranda is cool and determined, but not cold. She is merely frustrated by the long separation from her husband. The murder scene of Gillian was to show the evil capabilities of the Prince, who would do anything for his own personal gain and pleasure. Only a woman of Miranda's determination and the love of her husband could defeat this man. Although Miranda seemed to want to blame their separation solely on Jared, it was obvious that they were both to blame. Both were headstrong and independent. I think at the end they learned to depend upon one another. I rank Miranda right up there with Skye, Zenobia, and Cyra. Cool, collected, determined, and strong.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Many romance novels revolve around an arranged marriage, love discovered after the wedding and eventually, living happily ever after. That's just the first 100 pages of this book. This book looks at the first four years of Miranda and Jared's marriage and they go go through some wild "adventures" in the path to true love.
It says something that this book is still in print after almost 20 years. It also was chosen as one of Romantic Times Top 200 Books of the 20th Century. The pacing is fast, the locations exotic and Miranda is a fun, spunky heroine. While the setting is largely the Regency period, this is no conventional Regency romance.
Unconquered is a fantasy, but it's a fun romp. Some of the undertones are a bit dated but surely were just the thing in 1981. I gobbled it down in a single sitting. Enjoy
