Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Historical goofs mar this otherwise compelling Victorian romance. Ash Turner becomes heir to the dukedom of Parford after uncovering evidence that the current duke's children, Ash's distant cousins, are illegitimate. Among the suddenly disinherited is the beautiful Lady Margaret Dalrymple, now shunned by society. Ash has no idea that the dying duke's beautiful nurse is actually Margaret, set to spy on Ash and collect material to support her brothers' countersuit for a decree of legitimacy. Instantly attracted to almost impossibly kind and charismatic Ash, Margaret is torn between newfound love and loyalty to her boorish brothers. While the love story is genuinely satisfying and Margaret's dilemma movingly portrayed, Milan (Proof by Seduction) leaves Ash's complex relationship with his brothers unresolved--perhaps to be explored further in sequels--and makes the conflict dependent on the unlikely scenario of Parliament legitimizing a bigamist's bastards, fatally marring an otherwise promising novel. (Feb.)

From Booklist

Ash Turner has taken everything from Margaret Dalrymple: her name, her dowry, and her fianc�e. But Margaret isn�t about to give up without a good fight. After discovering that Margaret�s father, the Duke of Parford, married her mother without bothering to divorce his first wife, Ash petitions Parliament to declare Margaret and her two brothers bastards, thus awarding the title�and everything that goes with it�to Ash. And when Ash arrives at her family�s ancestral estate to take up his duties as the new duke, Margaret is ready for him. While acting as nurse to her ailing father, who, until his death, is still the rightful duke, she intends to find out information about Ash that she can use to discredit his claims to the title. The flaw in her plan is the fact that Ash is so irresistibly nice. In her latest expertly executed historical, Milan delivers splendidly nuanced characters and a quietly compelling and emotionally complex plot. An addictively readable tale of revenge and redemption, love and family, Unveiled is brilliant. --John Charles

Every single Courtney Milan book I've read has been so full of win. Her writing really speaks to me on so many levels. Courtney's skill as a writer is shown perfectly with her heroes and heroines and the interactions that on the surface seem to be one thing, when really underneath their dialogue and conversations is another thing altogether. Not many authors can write a successful character driven story, but Courtney has done it time and again. Her latest, Unveiled is another beautifully written historical romance that I can't find any fault with. The majority of the drama that occurs is internally, mainly from the heroine, Anna Margaret Dalrymple, who's entire world has been destroyed not only because of the selfish and amoral actions from her father, but from a distant cousin who rips it all away as a revenge on his part.

Ash Turner and his two brothers lived in near poverty because their mother was sick in the head and become a religious fanatic who gave away all their money and livelihood after their father died. Ash lives with guilt over the death of his sister who could have been saved if only his distant cousin, Richard, the Duke of Parford had given him the funds needed for a doctor. The Duke turned Ash out on his ear just because he felt like it. Left with nothing, Ash leaves his family for India where he makes his fortune. When he returns, his brothers are living on the streets. He quickly makes amends, but it's not enough, or at least from his view. Ash promises to get back at Parford, and after years of waiting, has figured out a way to take away the Dukedom from Parford and in a legal way. Parford is a bigamist who married one woman, threw her away and then married another woman of society who became his Duchess. From that union he had three children, two sons and a daughter.

I enjoyed "Unveiled" for many reasons, including the pleasure of reading a well-written and nicely edited book (during the last several I've read, I had to untangle cumbersome sentences and figure out missing or misused words).

The hero, Ash Turner, is a gem. While he can be ruthless and vengeful, when he interacts with the heroine, Margaret, he is supportive, kind, protective, loyal, and extremely empathetic. He is the most lovable hero I've come across in a long time.

Watching the three Turner brothers together is great, too. Just as happens in real life, the siblings offer unconditional love, but frequently fail to understand each other, and often hurt each others' feelings.

I liked the funny bits. The Turners' dreadful mother gave each boy a bizarre name. Ash's full name is revealed in "Unveiled," but disclosure of the "real" names of the other two brothers must wait for the sequels. Including all three names in one book would require an extra chapter just for the names. Also, younger brother Mark is obsessively writing a quirky treatise on male chastity. And, Mark gives self-defense lessons in streetfighting tactics to the housemaids. I could imagine the maids in their dark uniforms leaping about the parlor like early 19th century ninjas.

Courtney Milan has used an interesting device in her novels. Each hero has a syndrome or difficulty that was not identified until the 20th century. In his own way, each man has figured out how he is different from most others. Each feels isolated from the rest of society, but all of them learn to adapt and face the challenges in their lives. The hero of Milan's first book appeared to have Asperger's Syndrome. The second novel featured a bi-polar hero.

Unfortunately, I'm always highly suspicious when books by (fairly) new authors get a bunch of five-star reviews. My natural instinct is to think those first few five-star reviews are coming from friends of the author or people paid by the publisher to review the book favorably.

HOWEVER....In the case of Unveiled, I have to say that I feel every five-star review here is absolutely deserved by this author. I won't go into detail about the book because several others before me have already done so, but I just wanted to say that the book really surprised me in how beautifully it was written. I've read so many books lately that have just not been written well at all, that I found myself just shocked at how wonderful Milan is as a writer.

The book was completely engaging from the very beginning, and kept me enthralled throughout. The characters were well rounded and believable. I loved both the hero and the heroine and, even though logically, you know they will win in the end, I found myself on the edge of my seat, rooting for both to overcome the hurdles that were keeping them apart.

I would have absolutely no problem recommending this book to any other regency romance fan. Just a brilliant piece of writing. Well done, Courtney Milan!

To me, what makes this novel stand out from the pack is that it's more of a character study than a romance. Ash and Margaret are each in a rut in their journeys to self-actualization. The relationship that springs up between them helps them realize that they can be more than they're settling for.

The story got off to a slow start, but it didn't take me long to realize it wasn't slow...it was deliberate. This author's style reminds me a lot of Madeline Hunter, another writer who takes romance to the next level with fleshed out characters and careful word choices. Like Hunter, Ms. Milan seems more to craft her work than to just slop it down with an inevitable ending.

The family relationships are another stellar aspect of this book. Ash's relationships with his brothers felt true to life...both joyful and painful in the way family relationships are. (Your family may drive you nuts, but you'd probaly still give your life for them.) Poor Margaret drew the short straw when it came to family, yet they're not flat-out villains either. Margaret struggles with wishing she could walk away from them and knowing she just can't.

Bottom line: If you prefer your romances quick, formulaic, and focused on the couple relationship, then this may not be the book for you. If you look for a little more in your light reading experiences, give this one a try. I loved it and am eagerly looking forward to the next two books.
