Publisher's Summary

Gil Truman has eyes only for the beautiful Tilly - until he is forced to marry plain, sickly Rose Davenport to reclaim the lands his father foolishly gambled away. After a disastrous wedding night tainted with his bitterness, he deposits Rose at his remote, Northumbrian estate, soothing his guilt with the thought that she need never lay eyes on him again.
Five years after the mortifying wedding night that destroyed all her romantic fantasies, Rose is fed up with hearing second - and third - hand reports of Gil's philandering ways. She is no longer the shy, homely girl he left behind, but a strong, confident woman who knows how to run an estate. And knows what she wants - her husband, back in their marriage bed.
Gil doesn't recognize the bold, flirtatious woman he meets at a ball, with or without her mask. Yet he is bewitched and besotted, and their night together is the most passionate he has ever known. But when he confesses his sins to the beautiful stranger, the truth rips open the old wounds of their blighted history. Threatening any hope of a future together.
Contains mature themes.

An Excellent book

Would you consider the audio edition of Unforgivable to be better than the print version?

I think this book would be great in any format. It is very much like a Mary Balaug novel. It has an h/h that don't just fall into bed/love because both are beautiful. They have a very rough start to their relationship and then grow together. You understand why the fall in love and feel the complexity of those emotions.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I really liked Rose. She was smart and did not make a lot of mistakes or went against her intelligence just to make the plot move in a certain way ( like so many authors that write smart women that keep doing stupid things). Rose was authentic to her character and behaved with logic, strength and passion.

Which character – as performed by Lucy Rayner – was your favorite?

The narrator did a great job with the different characters. I could hear when characters changed, because she had a subtle difference for every one. I think she did a very good djob.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I could feel the anguish of the characters and their pain. It was then so wonderful to feel them falling in love and coming to appreciate each other. This is what romance should be...but lately is not . This book doesn't depend on sex scenes to convey the emotions. it is complex, from them hating each other to friendship to love. The character development was fantastic! And the sex scenes are integrated so they have meaning and move the story forward.

Any additional comments?

I can't wait to read more from this author. She has a great feel for both the anxiety, insecurity and flaws found in both a male and female character, so the development is exciting to read. I wish there were more books available from her, but hopefully in the future. I'll be looking for more like this one.

Beat me again it's my fault!!

I kept reading hoping . . praying . . believing that at some point Rose would wake up and smell the coffee and smack her jerk husband in the face, but to know avail! Instead she berates herself for what . . .seducing her own husband! Terrible, terrible lessons in this book!
