Untouched by Anna Campbell

Genre: Historical Romance
Publication Date: 27th November 2007
Pages: 434
My Rating: 4 stars

I gave this book 4 stars as I read it after reading Anna Campbell's first novel, Claiming the Courtesan and whilst I enjoyed Untouched I felt it was a little undeveloped in comparison. 

The characters, Grace & Matthew were atypical which was refreshing (Grace being widowed & Matthew, Marquess of Sheene being held captive in his own home for over a decade and a virgin.) I also found it quite novel that the couple's first sexual experience was unsatisfying for Grace. 

There is romance, genuine scenes of fear, sexual tension and sizzling encounters but I thought after the many refreshing differences in this novel, I was disappointed in the ending...yes it was happy, but it seemed an easy option rather than being an ending with more substance.
