Muckamore Abbey: Seclusion room pictures unveiled
Family is very important to me as well, and even though I don't always like everything my family does, I love them, and I'd do anything for them. That's why I couldn't get mad either at Ash or Margaret at the choices they made. Even though their brothers didn't always understand the sacrifices they made for them, it was both characters' choices to give up so much for the love of their siblings. In the end, I was glad that they found each other, and realized that someone saw them truly and loved them honestly.
I was glad they found their other halves, because I think that this kind of love is so valuable to humans, and they both needed it. It takes a writer of considerable skill to create such real, lovable characters, and Ms. I loved the intensity of her writing, and the strength of the story here, a romance, and a good one, but something more.
I liked how she integrated the sensual moments into this love story, making them intrinsic to the development of the relationship between Ash and Margaret. I liked that Ash saw Margaret and knew she was what he wanted and needed. I liked that even though it was a seemingly bad idea to fall for Ash, Margaret did anyway. I know that she had some tough choices to make, and I was glad that she was able to make a choice that was right for her, down deep, and that that choice included Ash.
I was glad their feelings for each other, that trust and understanding of each other stayed true, even in the face of what seemed insurmountable. I also loved the authenticity of the Victorian setting, drawn in subtle strokes, but very evident. I could tell that the author knows her subject, and she managed to convey that without overwhelming the narrative with facts about Victorian England and inheritance law.
Giving this book five stars is a foregone conclusion, based on its many strengths, and how much I enjoyed reading it.
It was deep, rich, fascinating, sensual, intense, and rewarding. All the things I love about historical romance. View all 32 comments. Dec 06, KatLynne rated it really liked it Shelves: This is my second book by Courtney Milan and I really enjoyed this story. This author has a definite talent and I love how she incorporates the unusual in her stories and makes it work so well.
I loved the hero, Ash Turner. He is one of those men just oozing with that sizzling sex appeal that draws you in making you love him. But my love for him was not just his charismatic appeal. I liked his character And whil This is my second book by Courtney Milan and I really enjoyed this story. And while hiding a long held secret we see a vulnerable side that appealed to me.
Still suffering from painful events from his childhood, he is haunted by memories and relentlessly seeks revenge from the one man who hurt his family. Lady Anna Margaret Dalrymple is the kind of heroine I like…intelligent, strong and fierce in her loyalty to those she loves. But I do not wish to convey that this story is all about hatred, revenge and despair. This is an amazing story full of passion, tenderness, strong sensual desire, longing, and hope.
They want a woman who is a canvas, white and empty. Standing still, existing for no other purpose than to serve as a mute object onto which they can paint their own hopes and desires. They want their brides veiled. They want a demure, blank space they can fill with whatever they desire. View all 11 comments. Mar 01, Elizabeth rated it it was ok Shelves: I decided to give this book a try, my first ever Courtney Milan, having seen the praise lavished on both author and book gathering the momentum of an avalanche. Obviously, previous crushing disappointment has not yet taught me to mistrust this kind of 'enthusiasm' and see through all this thoroughly undeserved praise.
Everything in this book is so smugly mature, so insufferably idealised, so wishfully civilised, that you could both smell and feel the starch. The reader is assaulted by a narrativ I decided to give this book a try, my first ever Courtney Milan, having seen the praise lavished on both author and book gathering the momentum of an avalanche. The reader is assaulted by a narrative that reads like an endless relationship-guideline wholly contemporary of course - why bother set your book in the 19th c.?
Since the past plays no part in anything, why don't you bloody set it in the present and be done with it? The manufactured maturity of this book drowned everything that could have been interesting in this story, and it was so oppressive that finishing it felt like fleeing a small musty smelling basement.
The very concept of maturity of the book's characters and their love ends up as a clunky caricature of the real thing, sabotaged by the writer's ever so precious, ever so prissy treatment of passion and of gender, social and sexual relations. This reader felt constantly hammered by etiquette. One of the failures of this book is that it harks back to the bad old days, when passion was conveniently and prudishly divided into two steps: This kind of false dichotomy passes for 'development' in the couple's relationship.
In Milan's book the sex is even more of a task to read than all the other elements in her not-remotely-historical romance the past, in which it is supposedly set, counts for shit. For sex here is oddly de-sexualised and reads more like a pedantic discourse on what should happen between bodies in the dark.
That said, it would not be fair to say that Milan's writing is bad although it can be that too, for example, a good writer would have never allowed the scenes between the Turner brothers to run and run into four and five pages. Nothing of what was said or accomplished by such prolixity could not have been done in three paragraphs , but it definitely is, and in a way that makes it worse than bad, insufferable, as it is lead by a desire for hagiographic, wholly affirmative romance, where even the having of a cup of tea is analysed to death -for the purpose of constantly asserting that the female character is 'in control' and the writer not only never misses a chance to assert the heroine's being 'in control' but artificially creates reams and reams of opportunities to make such an assertion.
In Milan's writing the 19th c. Milan's characters are not characters at all, they are mouthpieces for the writer's indifferent, random and forced rationalisations. This kind of writing tends to turn its back to what is should be? In historical romance there's the additional demand for an ear sensitive to the requirements of one's historical setting, and I don't mean merely frocks, carriages and 'prithees', but mores, social structures and norms, gender and sexual relations, which the romance should recall to some powerful effect.
If you want to write historical romance then you should take the effort to show how society would bite back and would not allow you to fulfil those desires that exceed what society symbolically shapes. In short, there is no way that the authorities would have passed over all those males and given the prize to the heroine but Milan is so idiotically obsessed with forcing totally foreign to the 19th c.
In the end, the whole reads and feels like an arid exercise in sanitised contemporary relationships and this is something the more recent spade of romance writers suffer from, instead of interesting -and perverse- idealisations and fantasies of romantic love we get the sanitisation of such fantasies, with all their teeth removed.
Milan wrote not a romance even less a historical romance but a homily on the proper etiquette for 'dating' not love in frocks. There's no exploration of eros energetic, naughty, dramatic, purple or any other kind , no exploration of conflict between the sexes and a 19th c. Worse still, all the so-called negative elements in 'Unveiled' that were supposed to drive the drama and create some conflict are so woefully trivial and so clumsily contrived that this oppressed by the writer's manipulations reader called upon the gods to deliver her.
All the hurdles which are utterly unconvincingly presented here as insuperable conflicts rang hollow and were nothing more than clumsy plot fiddlings to further the cause of the characters' promotion to sanitary heights. All the 'titanic' obstacles the writer tells us are insuperable and she at once constantly states them and refuses to reveal their nature thus achieving the triple feat of being simultaneously turgid, annoying and vague are quickly overcome and forgotten with a little bit of good will, friendly banter and, the oh so boring, age old cliche of fisticuffs-achieved male camaraderie.
If you like your lovers written by a neat and ponderously moralising hand where the heroine's 'being in control' has to be asserted, celebrated, shouted from the rooftops and advertised on giant billboards -making a mockery of and contradicting her circumstances ; if you want everything to sound like a relationships advice column in Cosmo; if you like your romance books pompously trying to disguise their inability to come up with a love story of note especially a 19th c.
Me, I found the pompous triviality of her prose and her shrill contemporary voice so unbearable that I've resolved never to go anywhere near a book that bears her name again. View all 3 comments. Here are some of my thoughts: They actually both turn out quite likable? Ash is so dedicated to his brothers and vulnerable in garnering their approval. I can even appreciate the confidence that we have seen since the beginning because he has shown why he is so determined in his life. In additi Here are some of my thoughts: In addition, Margaret has gotten more thoughtful and lively later on.
Nikki Haley hints at yet to be unveiled 'deal of the century'
I appreciate that she has shown how the struggles she has gone through in the past year has changed her, and how much her perspective has changed. And same for that scene when she realizes that she deserves to give her loyalty to people who appreciates her and treats her well.
I was dang proud when she finally got to that realization, but it took her like the whole book. I like the way he challenges her and the way he always respects her. He is infinitely patient with her throughout the book. Especially towards the latter part of the book, he is honestly so sweet and respectful towards her.
In addition, I like that she speaks up to him and truly listens and recognizes his good qualities. The same goes for him because he also champions her to her brothers. It is nice to see that they are grateful for each other and accept each other, while their own family can fail to show that same level of family loyalty they are able to give. The developments in the characters are particularly shocking and great to me. However, I am not exactly enchanted at this point.
Other things to note? When Margaret yelled at Smite and Mark for making Ash sad and lonely. When the secret it out, and Ash is so supportive and sweet to Margaret still. When Margaret and Ash reunite at the end. Explicit details on sex. Making this short but Unveiled reminds me why I love historical romance. Ash is simply the best, most amazing hero. Never have I wanted a character in a book to be as real as this one. Tender, patient, some decent alpha. Dec 31, Mimi Smith rated it it was amazing Recommended to Mimi by: This book was much more captivating than I'd thought it would be.
So, people, prepare yourself. Ash Turner has had a difficult life-made all the harder by the Dalrymples-the duke and his sons. But he's made it, he's now a successful businessman and a rich man, if not an educated one. And now he has the chance to take his revenge on them-as well as help his beloved brothers Mark and Smite in one move. Taking their dukedom away from them by proving their illegitimacy.
Maybe it is cruel, but there are few things Ash wouldn't do for his brothers And now you know my greatest weakness: I want to give them everything. I want everyone in the world to realize how perfect they are.
They are smarter than me, better than me. But then, if Mark had wanted to flap his wings and embark on a voyage to distant planets on holiday… Well. Ash would have found a way. It reminded him of the cacophony of an orchestra as it tuned its instruments: It was the rumble, not of thunder, but its low, rolling precursor, trembling on the horizon. It was all of that. It was none of that. It was sheer animal instinct, and it reached up and grabbed him by the throat. As if the reactive beast buried deep inside him could recognize truths that human intelligence, dulled by years of education, could not.
And he is determined to win her over. It shouldn't be too difficult. After all, he is endlessly charming. Everyone loved him, right? Margaret Lowell is actually Lady Anna Margaret, the daughter of the Duke of Parford She remained in the manor to see what kind of man Ash was and to report it to her brothers, to help them in the fight for the title. But, slowly, Ash starts to win her over, despite her original protest. And he won her over by showing her all she is and could be. And what do those dastardly spots portend? Are freckled people thrown in prison?
Covered in tar and sprinkled with tiny little down feathers? Call me Ash because you deserve it. Because your station is just so many words in a parish register, not a sentence of death. And I want you on it with me. The biggest being Margaret's real identity and the necessity to choose between her brothers and him. He was all light, no darkness.
It was Margaret herself who cast shadows. So, what else to say about this book.

I obviously loved it. I liked its originality, the characters, both Ash and Margaret were great and so right for each other. I loved the brothers, too. I loved the humor and the romance. So, to everyone reading this review No I did not post the entire novel here, and there's so much more. And you should consider-I'm not usually a fan of historical romance, so me saying that means a lot. Oh, and the only thing I remained curious about-what's Ash's full name? ETA Never mind the last bit, Erika told me view spoiler ["And ye shall tread down the wicked, for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet" hide spoiler ] No, I'm not kidding.
View all 8 comments. Mar 24, TJ rated it it was amazing Shelves: The characters of Ash Turner and Lady Margaret are two of the most endearing, yet believable, honorable yet torn characters on page today. The story is engaging with twists and turns one never expects - especially the big one at the end! The only glitch for me was the "from the moment he saw her he knew he would seduce her" aspect.. The type of man Ash was would not be so blase' about ruining a young woman whether nurse or aristocrat. With that exception, this story is the stuff romance is made of and the reason people gobble it up!
Jul 27, Elizabeth Liz rated it it was ok Shelves: I do believe I'm missing the I-love-Courtney-Milan gene that everyone seems to have. I skimmed big portions of this story. It was deadly dull. View all 12 comments. Mar 04, Bark rated it really liked it Shelves: Ash Turner was going to be a damn nuisance. She stayed behind, posing as a nursemaid to the ailing duke in order to keep him safe and also to spy on Ash and report all of his failings back to her brothers who are attempting to get reinstated as legitimate heirs with a case in parliament. The more time they spend together the more difficult it is for her to tell him the truth.
This was a fabulous love story, developed well with strong characterization and beautifully done sexual tension. At first I was all set to dislike Ash. What a jerk, right? He has layers and reasons for behaving the way he does and I warmed up to him fast. I have a few minor complaints. It seemed to come to quick and tidy after the big build-up but what do I know? Other than those minor nits I found this a thoroughly engaging and charming romance. The story follows Ash Turner, a self-made man who rose to power by outwitting his enemies.
His desire to take revenge on the man who had forsaken his family had landed him as the possible heir of a dukedom. Then, he meets Lady Margaret. I started reading a handful of regency books last year. There are so many that stood out for me, they all have an uplifting ending, swoony romance, and feminist values. As expected, there is a robust presence of philosophy, politics, but the strongest focal point lies within the craft of the characters. I love his unfailing loyalty to her brothers. The heroine Margaret has been through several hurdles, but still she tries.
I love how she constantly struggled with her familial duties and her honor. Her growth from page one to the end has been notable. The Romance The romance is spectacular, it made my eyes misty at some point. Ash seduces—offers everyone he knows regardless of their station a promise of their self-worth. And to Margaret, who has barely hanging on with her insanity, he is dangerous. The validation is too tempting. Similar to each other, they are both caught in between their loyalty to their family.

I love how Milan avoided the usual plot device such as miscommunication for drama. This is the romance we all need. But her hand, stroking his, returning the strong grip he gave her— this was something different. But right now, I want you to know one thing. She drew his head down to rest against hers. The short e-novella, Unlocked, set in this world is also a great read. It is not to be missed. Review also posted at Hollywood News Source.
Unveiled had the potential to stand out, to be different. It doesn't have a common theme like romance between the rake and the innocent. What it has is a romance between an honorable man and an honorable but not-so-innocent lady. Ash Turner was a figure of a gentleman, through and through. He had all the kindness and patience. He survived from poverty, he makes his own fortune. He knows how to treat a woman 3. He knows how to treat a woman with all the respect she deserves.

He had all the qualities we want from a man. There's nothing he wouldn't do for his brothers and the woman he loves. He was as perfect as a brother could be, as perfect as a lover could be. And that, unfortunately, was a big problem for me. When I wanted him to be angry, he remained calm. When I wanted him to be harsh, he turned soft. When I wanted him to hold his forgiveness, he gave it instantly. When I wanted him to put the blame on someone else, he blamed himself. I couldn't find a flaw in Ash Turner. I needed something like cruelty, impatiences, wickedness, greed, view spoiler [any imperfections other than dyslexia hide spoiler ] because I didn't consider that disability as a flaw.
It might have ruined the figure of perfection, but his character was emotionally flawless.
