Tuesday Teaser/Opening ~ Unveiled
Last week, I did a teaser from Courtney Milan's The Governess Affair. That started something, so this week, I'm rereading Unveiled. I don't read a lot of historical romance, but Courtney Milan is on my auto-buy list, and this is my favorite of her books.
Of all Ash Turner's accomplishments, stealing a dukedom from his old enemy is by far the most brazen. Now that he's been recognized as the heir, nothing remains but to head to Parford Manor and survey the estate that will be his. He expects opposition.
He gets Lady Margaret.
Margaret lost everything when Ash claimed the dukedom: her dowry, her legitimacy, and her place in society. Now Ash wants to take her family home, too. She disguises herself as a nurse, determined to learn his weaknesses. But the closer she comes to Ash, the greater the pull of his reckless charm. If she wants to reclaim what she has lost, her only choice is to betray the man she is beginning to love...
The First Paragraph:
Somerset, August 1837
So this was how it felt to be a conquering hero.
Ash Turner--once plain Mr. Turner; now, so long as fate stayed Parliament's hand, the future Duke of Parford--sat back on his horse as he reached the crest of the hill.
It was not lust itself he felt, but the premonition of desire, as if the wind that whipped around his cravat were whispering in his ears. Her. Choose her.
