Review: Untouched

UntouchedUntouched by Anna Campbell

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Mistaken, somehow, for a prostitute while lost in the port of Bristol, respectable widow Grace Paget is kidnapped and left strapped to a table by 2 nasty henchman before being discovered by a man who calls himself "mad." Yes, she is the present from his creepy semi-usurping Uncle John who wants his virgin nephew sated by sex so he won't escape the cottage in which he is imprisoned. Faced with rape and death as the alternative, Grace seduces Matthew, Lord Sheene--their initial encounter is predictably awful, but he catches on quick, figures out cunnilingus himself--he's a botanist--and bang! they fall for each other. But can they escape from the wicked uncle and his henchman and find happiness at last? Despite the melodramatic schlock factor (and it certainly has that), Campbell's writing is so addictive I had trouble putting this book down.
