Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Marriage is not in Juliette Andrews’ future. After Brandon Carlisle, the Earl of Strathland, seduced and ruined her, Juliette gave up any hope of a romantic happily-ever-after. Instead, she dedicates all of her time and energy to overseeing the financial side of Aphrodite’s Unmentionables, the exclusive and very popular ladies intimate apparel company founded by Juliette and her two sisters. When Dr. Paul Fraser suddenly shows up in London, Juliette isn’t certain if she is happy or not to see her old childhood friend. Despite the fact that she turned down his offer of marriage two years earlier, Paul still refuses to take no for an answer. Once Paul discovers exactly what Strathland did to Juliette, he not only redoubles his efforts to secure Juliette’s hand in marriage, but he is even more determined to finally secure revenge against his sworn enemy. Rich with historical detail and insightful characterization, Unraveled by the Rebel, the second in Willingham’s intriguing Secrets in Silk series, is a lushly sensual treat. —John Charles


"The sisters reunite once again in the second installment of the Secrets in Silk quartet. Plenty of action keeps the story moving, while class prejudice and Juliette’s own fears stand in the way of happily ever after. Paul's courage in the face of danger and his willingness to assuage Juliette's concerns enhance this worthwhile tale." —RT Book Reviews, 4 stars

"A sweeping story of Highland clearances and London society." —FreshFiction.com

Praise for Undone by the Duke, Book 1 in the Secrets in Silk Quartet:
“Well written, aptly conveying a strong sense of family among the sisters, the quartet shows great promise.” —4 stars, RT Book Reviews

"A tender, exquisitely romantic tale..." —Connie Brockway, New York Times bestselling author

If you were looking for a lighthearted romance novel, this book isn't it. There are a few tender moments, but overall, it's about the heroine's struggle to overcome a severe psychological trauma and hero's warring desire for vengeance and acceptance, particularly by the heroine's parents, who do not consider him a suitable match for their daughter.

When the story opens, the hero and heroine share a friendship tinged with adolescent attraction that is later supposed to turn into love. Despite the number of flashbacks, it's not shown how the feelings grew through the years of separation. Five years is a really long time to be apart, and given the trials both characters had gone through, it's likely that they don't even know each other all that well.

To be fair, the book does a good job showing that, in fact, they don't. Granted, after they marry, toward the last third of the book, they start building a relationship, but beyond their combined efforts to bring about the downfall of the villain, the development is hidden from the reader because the timeline jumps seven months into the future.

I've taken issue with more than a few plot twists, on which I cannot elaborate without spoilers, so if you'd rather not read them, skip the rest of this review, but keep in mind that the book includes triggers.

The hero is a crofter's son, whose father is hanged for the crime, of which neither he nor the father is guilty. After the tragedy, his mother sends him to his father's family in Edinburgh, where he learns that his father was the youngest, disowned son of an old viscount, and that he's the heir presumptive - not heir apparent as he's called in the book - to the current viscount, his uncle.

Michelle Willingham never disappoints. Unraveled by the Rebel is the second in her Secrets in Silk series. Dr. Paul Fraser is a wonderfully noble Highlander who is determined to marry his teenage sweetheart, Juliette Andrews, when they're reunited years later at the wedding of her sister. However, in his absence Juliette has suffered violence at the hands of Paul's powerful enemy. She protects her secrets and her heart as her beloved rebel presses her for answers. Paul is a perfect hero, full of venom for the man who ruined Juliette, yet gentle, loving, and patient with her. The passion swept me into the story, and the suspense kept me turning pages. Well done, Ms. Willingham!

Second in a series called 'Secrets in Silk' but it can stand alone.
The story proper opens in 1811 as Paul Fraser, a crofter's son and now an Edinburgh doctor, attends the wedding of Juliette Andrews's sister. The crofter families have been forced off the land by a rich landowner to make room for more profitable sheep, with Napoleonic wars pushing up the price of wool, and the people are camping out in bitter weather as they try to rebuild their lives elsewhere.
Since Juliette's father, an officer off fighting, came into his title, there is an uneasy situation and she tells Paul that he should not be interested in her. Juliette has a secret in her past however, that she was attacked by the rich landowner and she believes that Paul deserves a wife who could give him children as she cannot.
Paul is determined to ruin the landowner but Juliette just wants to live quietly in London now and help her sisters sell silk and satin undergarments to a shop for ladies, to shore up the debt her father inherited.
I always like the details and history in Michelle Willingham's books. However I was surprised that it was not mentioned that the men at balls all wore regimental or navy uniform at this time. Indeed the ladies found it difficult to wear a dress whose colours did not clash with some of the brightly coloured uniforms.

A definite page turner from beginning to end, so it's a good idea to start the book when you have time to read it from start to finish!!! You will find this is a very well written not entirely lighthearted romance, conforming more to overcoming true to life situations instead of a happy go lucky fairy tale. Packed with suspense, this book reveals a heroine who survives, does what is necessary, and overcomes a devastating tragedy. The hero's, who secretly loves her and has been wronged by the same enemy, main concern is winning her love and vengeance for them both while winning the heroine's parents approval and acceptance.

Drama and continuous suspenseful danger captivates the reader's attention throughout and allows the reader to get to know the characters on an emotional level. It draws the reader into the story and keeps them guessing as to what will happen next as they cheer the couple on to find that second chances of happiness do exist; you just have to find your way to the end of the rainbow.

The sisters of this series are strong and willing to take necessary steps outside the conventional socially acceptable box to survive and keep themselves and those under their responsibility out of poverty. This is Michelle Willingham's second book in the Andrew sisters Secrets in Silk series, of which I hope is not the last book of the series. This book can be read as a stand-alone but once started will make you want to read the first book, Undone by the Duke. You will discover, if this is your first time reading, Michelle Willingham is a top notch and not to be missed author!!!
