New contest: "Unclaimed" by Courtney Milan

ETA 10/8/13: This contest is now closed. Aislinn won the book!

It is no surprise that I love stories about sweet, earnest heroes and embittered courtesan heroines. So I have a special place in my heart for Courtney Milan’s incredible Unclaimed, the second book in her Turner brothers series.


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 in check…until he meets the beautiful Jessica Farleigh, the woman he’s waited for all his life.


But Jessica is a courtesan, not the genteel lady Sir Mark believes. Desperate to win free of a life she despises, she seizes her chance when Mark’s enemies make her an offer she can’t refuse: Seduce Mark and tarnish his good name, and a princely sum will be hers. Yet as she comes to know the man she’s sworn to destroy, Jessica will be forced to choose between the future she needs–and the love she knows is impossible.

In my goodreads review I said (among other gushy things): “Courtney Milan is a genius in many ways, but one of my favorite things about her writing is the sheer depth of longing in her books. I bought Mark and Jessica as meant for each other within seconds of them meeting, their connection was so intense and real. And I felt Jessica’s bitter loneliness in my bones.”

Just comment on this post to enter, and make sure you enter your e-mail address on the comment form (not in the body of the comment itself, just where it says NAME: URL: EMAIL:). It won’t show up to other commenters, but I’ll get it and then I can easily notify you of your win. As always, if you want to be alerted when a new contest goes up, I recommend signing up for my newsletter.

NB: Courtney isn’t involved in the giveaway and the signed book isn’t personalized. So if you want to tell her how much you loved her book, this isn’t the place. That would be her website. (But this IS the place to tell ME how much you loved it!)

Good luck!

    1. Congratulations, it is open internationally and you won! Look for an email from me asking where you want the book shipped. 🙂

  1. I loved all of Courtney’s Brothers Sinister series but haven’t gotten around to reading this one yet. Looking forward to it when I do!

  2. Courtney Milan is one of my must-read authors. Among other attributes, I appreciate how she explains complicated concepts so well.

  3. Actually I don’t like stories about courtesans, that’s why I didn’t read A Lily Among Thorns even if I love In for a Penny. If I win, I’ll offer it to a friend of mine who likes this kind of book.

  4. I’ve heard such good things about this book, and the plot sounds like something I’d really enjoy. Thanks for this contest!

  5. Hi Rose!
    I love Courtney’s books and recently just read the second book in The Brothers Sinister series, The Heiress Effect, and loved it as much as the first book in the series that came out the end of last year, The Duchess Wars!
    I can’t believe I missed reading Unclaimed when it was released because I read the 1st, 3rd and 4th book in the series! All of them are wonderful and obviously I forgot to pre-order for my Kindle! Thanks for reminding me because I loved all the other three books in the Turner Brothers Series. Maybe it’s because I have sons of my own but when I read them I often thought of my sons who are grown with sons of their own now!
    Thanks for the great contest!

  6. I have yet to read a book by Courtney so would welcome the chance to do so. Thanks for alerting us to this author.

  7. I adore Historical Romance books, and have read a couple of Courtney’s previous books.
    I’d love to read “Unclaimed”, as it sounds like a wonderful read. Thank you for the chance to win.

  8. Very interesting story line, would love to win this!! The author is one of several that I enjoy, just checked and this book is not on my shelves nor on my kindle…………

  9. I love Courtney’s books. I haven’t read this one yet . Thanks for the chance to win.

  10. How lovely this is of you to offer “Unclaimed” as a prize. I’ve read it and also liked it, but don’t have an autographed copy. 🙂

  11. Another courtesan heroine – I’m all over that. I like Courtney’s writing, but just hadn’t gotten around to this series, although I believe I have the first one on my towering TBR pile. Thanks for the contest!
