"You have to do more than just like it. You have to seek it, fight for it to be in your life."
Because I'm not a big fan of serialized novels, I opted to download this entire series all at once, so I wouldn't feel I was left hanging in between episodes. And I enjoyed every winding, pulsing minute of this tale.
I think it can be easy for a contemporary writer to rely on the interesting manners, frills, and glamorous motifs of England's Regency period and leave out the kind of deeper, human exploration that makes novels like Jane Austen's so great. Hence, while a story may have Austen-like qualities on the "outside," it can fall flat beneath its English frills.
Unveiling Love is no such flat or flimsy story. I'm not comparing it to Austen's work, as Barrington and Amora's tale comes from a whole different kind of outlook and whatnot. And I did notice minor errors and inconsistencies in the writing, throughout the series.
But I also noticed the story's layering, and the author's evocative, poetic style that shines or pierces in places. I noticed the nuances in characters' development and interaction. It annoyed me when Barrington and Amora would jump to drastic conclusions in their heads, but it wouldn't make them suddenly jump out of character with melodramatic tantrums, as might have been the case in a flimsier story. No, the balance and tension between their thoughts and actions make them all the more believable. They must face questions in their relationship without easy answers, which makes their journey all the more compelling.
Plus, it pleased and thrilled me to read Regency romantic suspense with main characters of color, something I don't run into every day. This story of passion, doubt, faith, and intrigue kept me curious to see how this husband and wife might indeed seek and fight for light.
I certainly plan on reading this author again.
I hate reviews that give things away, but I like to know certain things before starting a book. There are no foul words, spiritism, gory violence, or intimate sex scenes. Some of the topics are sensitive, but treated with dignity and respect. I can't wait to read more from Vanessa Riley.
