Her former tormenter is up to his old tricks, and she's his intended victim. This time, though, the earl is going to discover that wallflowers can fight back.
Evan has come to regret his cruel, callow past. At first, he only wants to make up for past wrongs. But when Elaine throws his initial apology in his face, he finds himself wanting more. And this time, what torments him might be love...
Unlocked by Courtney Milan is about Lady Elaine Warren and her constant torture she endures by individuals in society. She was bullied at a young age and it unfortunately failed to cease as she grew older. This story is about her overcoming all and breaking out of her shell.
This was indeed a nice surprise. I love a good romance novel that leaves me with a smile on my face. This novel was so heartbreaking at times but so adorable the next. I loved it! I agree with many of the reviewers comments regarding the length of the novel. As much as I loved it, it would have been nice if the author had gone into the story with a bit more detail.
