UnclaimedHer only hope for survival Handsome wealthy and respected Sir Mark Turner is the most sought after bachelor in all of London and he's known far and wide for his irreproachable character But behind his virtuous reputation lies a passionate nature he keeps carefully i. “But you’re— you’re—”“A virgin” There was a note of amusement in his voice “True But just because I don’t believe in poaching out of season doesn’t mean I can’t hunt”As I’m sitting here trying to write this review I can’t begin to tell you how much I loved Unclaimed So much passion so much wisdom so much hope so much truth so much just so very much And uotes Literally pages worth of uotes I’d love to share with you Some that took my breath away some made me swoon others made me cry So where to begin Well if you’re a fan of historical romance you know how unfair society could be towards “fallen women” That double standard that literally ruined lives sometimes for a single “transgression” while yet allowing men to get away with anything and everything the debauched the better I adored this book because it took that very issue and stood it on its ear showing it from an entirely different point of view I absolutely adored Mark Turner whose book A Gentleman’s Practical Guide to Chastity had become an overnight sensation garnering a near cult like following of men and women passionate about giving up sex In fact so great was his stardom even ueen Victoria had heard about the book and bestowed Knighthood on Mark And to be completely honest I wasn’t sure how entertaining a book about a male virgin would really be but leave it to Courtney Milan to make it work I cheered Sir Mark in his convictions his reasons for choosing abstinence and his often humorous determination not to be swayed Jessica Farleigh was a fallen woman who had reached the point of desperation and decided to do whatever she had to in order to survive She had no desire to find herself on the streets again so in this instance survival meant seducing the infamous virgin Sir Mark Turner in to giving up chastity and then publicly ruining him by giving away all the details of their night of passion Having been hired to do so by a ruthless power hungry politician who wanted Mark destroyed the money she’d earn if she succeeded would make it so she’d never have to sell her body again Tired bitter and desperate she didn’t care what it would cost the virtuous Mark TurnerI really am having trouble explaining all the reasons I loved this book Humor passion seriousness I've decided I'll just share a few of my favorite uotes in hopes that they can show you why I adore this story so much It was so hard to choose which ones to include though because they’re all so so good and so true“If you were any other man” she said softly “I would think that you had just threatened to seduce me”“Worse” He leaned down close enough to whisper “I threatened to like you I suspect seduction would be easier for you to understand”A small smile touched her lips “Sir Mark there’s no need to threaten me with anything so drastic as like Mere acceptance would be sufficiently shocking”“A man who is sufficiently strong in his own right need not be jealous of power in others” He glanced at her “I know ugly men who insist on ugly wives believing that they will not stray” He shrugged “For myself I’ve always wanted a beautiful woman” She let out a little laugh “Because you are so beautiful yourself”“Because I intend to win her affections to me mind and soul” And then as if in an afterthought he added “And body I definitely look forward to winning her body”“It cheapens what I’ve accomplished” Mark said “to imagine me a saint To believe I am untempted that I pass through this life without feeling lust or want or desire I said it in the first chapter of my book and yet nobody seems to believe me Chastity is hard ”“I hadn’t thought—”“I want I lust I desire” He scrubbed his hand through sandy blond hair at that shaking his head “No You’re right You don’t deserve euphemisms I want you I lust after you I desire you ”She might have been the only woman in the world pinned by his gaze“But what I don’t do is act”“You’re a duke’s brother A knight And I’m a whore”He grabbed her wrist “Don’t call yourself that I wouldn’t let anyone else talk about you that way— why should I let you”“Very well Call me a fallen woman then”“Do you think that matters to me My mother used to say that there was no such thing as a fallen woman You just had to look for the man who pushed her down”The bottom line With Unclaimed Courtney Milan has outdone herself and it has become one of my all time favorite historical romance novels I loved seeing the desire to be chaste from the male perspective both the humor and the seriousness of it This story is heartwarming and heartbreaking romantic and passionate And don't be concerned that it's a holier than thou pulpit pounding tale far from it Mark's reasons for his chastity are made very clear and they'll have you cheering him just as I did Ms Milan had me laughing out loud sighing and wishing it would never end And visiting with Ash and Smite so much fun Unclaimed is definitely an addition to my Keepers shelf This ARC ebook was provided free of charge by netgalleycom in behalf of HNBooks This had no influence on my rating or my review

One of my abs fav romance tropes the male virginNot only that the male virgin paired with a courtesan If only she was one an unabashed one who was going to show him a good time still waiting for one of those books She's a good courtesan forced to sell her body cuz she fell on hard timesAnyway not only is he a MALE VIRGIN he's famous for writing a book on chastity I wanted his book from the time I met him in book 1 UnveiledThey don't describe him terribly flatteringly tho He didn't sound tall tho apparently he is and he didn't sound leanly muscular just slim slight And blond Like an innocent angelBut the man has a temper And he can beat bullies up AND he's gorgeous to boot What's not to likeUnfortunately for me bc he's one of those pale blondies I can't really use Mr Blondie Bun's image as I'm imagining MarkSome of my fav uotes were in this book I love that he struggles with his passions but CHOOSES to wait for the right woman And than once she hurt him uite badly broke his heart I'm not terribly fond of this heroine but my fondness for Mark makes me still give this book a 5
