    1. Thank you for writing this book, Ms. Campbell. I loved it, from beginning to end. I am an unashamed lover of virgin heroes, and Matthew is going near the top of my list. Matthew truly was a hero to die for. His passion, his integrity, his intelligence, his innocence, his anguish. Oh, my goodness. I am so in love with this man. And reading his story, and how he meets Grace, was such a wonderful experience for me. Why we love books is so unique to each reader. There is no formula for a perfect boo [...]

    2. ***This review contains spoilers***After reading Claiming the Courtesan, I rushed out and bought all of Anna Campbell’s books and I’m glad I did! Untouched is another unique story told only the way Ms. Campbell can tell them.Matthew, Lord Sheene is a wonderful man who has been held captive under the guise of insanity by his greedy uncle John since he was 14 years old. Claiming that due to a serious illness Matthew is no longer able to care for himself and is prone to ‘fits’, his uncle wa [...]

    3. Anna Campbell’s romance books may not fall under any typical romance, her stories drawn you into a dark world sensual world with characters that will pull and rip at your heart strings.While Claiming the Courtesan was at times a hard pill to shallow for some, Untouched was such a tragic story with a deep sensual level between Grace and Matthew. Still in keeping with the darker side of romance. Untouched kept you at the edge at all times never giving you leave until the ending chapters with sur [...]

    4. Untouched by Anna Campbell: A Glittering 5 star read that will stick with me for a long long time. Poignant and BeautifulOverall thoughts How do I accurately portray via Review how much beauty this book encompasses. With its intriguing cover and novel description, I decided to give this book a try. I haven't read any romance books in a while, much less Historical, and I needed something good. I had never read anything by this, splendid, author and so I was unsure. Truth is, I didn't have much ho [...]

    5. 3.5 stars for this one and a bit disappointing compared to Campbell’s previous stellar novel Claiming the Courtesan. The dark feel of the Regency Noir is certainly there, there’s some harsh, graphic violence (leaving you wondering if this is a romance novel at all) as well as the stock creepy characters but the main thing that was missing was the emotional connection between the h/h –I for one didn’t really feel it. I also have to say that I don’t like this kind of hero at all so I may [...]

    6. The Marquess of Sheene has been locked away in his country estate by his uncle for 11 years (since the age of 14). His uncle wanted to control his money and the power of the marquisette, and the only way to do that was to control Matthew Lansdowne. To that end, Matthew's uncle captures a loose woman and locks her away with him for his "pleasure". The only problem with that is that the loose woman that they capture isn't that at all, she's recently widowed Grace Paget. As I was reading this book, [...]

    7. I have been reading historical romance novels for many years now and “Untouched” is certainly the first romance novel I have read from Anna Campbell. “Untouched” is certainly one romance novel that is way different from all other romance novels I have read and it has enough drama, hot sizzling romance and forbidden love to keep any romance fan entertained!The book starts off with a beautiful woman named Grace Paget who is suddenly kidnapped by two terrible men and was brought to Lord Joh [...]

    8. I liked this book but to be honest I expected more than that. I liked the author's writing style, the dark atmosphere and the tortured hero. Unfortunately, I can't say the same for the heroine. She actualy pouted and finally lashed out like a harpy to the hero, for not satisfying her sexually(!) after their first time together. Her actions and attitude towards the end didn't help with the negative impression I already formed for her.Besides these facts, the story was original, the plot intriguin [...]

    9. At 14 years of age, Matthew, Lord Sheene, was locked away as a lunatic by his uncle. After suffering 11 years of isolation, torture and humiliation, Matthew is losing the will to go on. However, in order to retain control of the vast family fortune, his uncle, must ensure Matthew remains alive.He orders his men to obtain a whore for Matthew in an attempt to reinstate his will to live. Grace Paget, shabbily dressed and wandering alone near the docks at night, is an easy target for the uncle’s m [...]

    10. I was so looking forward to reading the story of Matthew and Grace and I wasn't disappointed. The relationship between Matthew and and Grace is one of captive and captive, Grace kidapped as whore for Matthew and Matthew as part of a nefarious plot by a relative. At first Matthew refuses to beleive that Grace is nothing more than what he has been toldspite her protestations. Here things could have become very exasperating but Matthew is quick to realize the truth, however, he is quite aware that [...]

    11. With so many reviews of this book available, I will just list some of my random thoughts of this well-done Regency-period novel. * Nearly all the action takes place on a small, walled-off estate, but it didn't suffer from the narrowness of the locale one bit.* There is a beauty of language not often seen. Some of my favorites:"He stared wordlessly down at the source of his anguish and his delight.""She stared at him, lost, dazzled, silent. Masculine triumph surged through him. She looked like th [...]

    12. This love story has an old fashioned theme where the lovers are ready to out do each other in sacrificing for love’s sake. This is a story about a Marquess H, who perhaps suffers from epilepsy, and who has been kept hidden and captive since he was 14 by an avaricious uncle who covets his wealth, and the formerly noblewoman h, a destitute widow of a farmer now, who gets abducted by his uncle’s goons to serve as a sex slave/amusement for the H. The book to begin with has despair, bitterness, d [...]

    13. A riveting romance featuring an emotionally and physically tortured hero trapped in his own home by his uncle's insatiable greed. Also a victim of the uncle's terrible scheme is the undeniably brave and beautiful heroine who is kidnapped to fulfill the hero's every desire when she is mistaken for a prostitute.The love story is beautifully written and the interactions between the h/h sizzles! What was so endearing was the fact that not only was the hero a virgin (and remained faithful during a ye [...]

    14. Oh, I loved this book. What a great hero, it kept me engaged from the first chapter. Read this! Intense and dark and romantic.The hero Matthew is a marquis that has been unjustly diagnosed by bribed doctors as a lunatic. He has been in an isolated small manor as a prisoner since he was 14. He's now 25 and it is after a near successful escape attempt. If he escapes his uncle will lose control of the finances so his uncle comes up with a plan: He hopes by putting a woman in with Matthew he will be [...]

    15. This book was a little bit different from the usual historical romance novel. It had an unusual plot and the main characters where not 'typical'. The author really built up the sexual tension between the main characters to fever pitch and their first encounter was more believable than many I've read. I enjoyed the plot, with the main character being locked up and held prisoner for being mad. The setting of the book is Somerset England in 1822. A time period I haven't read much about. The 'hook' [...]

    17. Matthew Lansdowne lost both his parents and was under his Uncle's care when he was afflicted with a fever that caused him to go mad. Power and money hungry Uncle, Lord John, took the opportunity to declare Matthew insane and keep him prisoner. For reasons unexplained, the Uncle has his henchmen kidnapped a supposed prostitute and bring her to Matthew to deflower. Grace is not a prostitute but in order to save her life she has to sleep with Matthew.I just want to thank my friend, Heather C for br [...]

    18. Untouched3 StarsMistaken for a prostitute and kidnapped, Grace Paget finds herself in a remote country manor where she is told to service a prisoner with a history of insanity or die. Matthew Lansdowne is determined to never give his despicable uncle the satisfaction of participating in his malicious games, but Grace tempts him like nothing else can. Together Grace and Matthew must face the harsh circumstances in which they find themselves and perhaps find a measure of happiness in their shared [...]

    19. 5 Stars AGAIN!I think this author's style is either a hit or miss for her readers. I'm a HIT girl so far on every one!!!!I love these stories!Untouched is a story about a young man (Matthew) determined mentally insane by doctors being paid off through his uncle. Why? His Uncle is gaurdian and has controll over all the money as long as Matthew stays "unwell". Matthew is locked up in a cottage on the estate when he is fourteen years old. Guarded and fed by two men and one woman.He has tried escape [...]

    20. 4.5/5 - Wow. I can't believe I let this book sit in the TBR pile for months. I'm not a big historical reader, though I really enjoy Lisa Kleypas and Julia Quinn's humor, but this book made me forget what genre it was, in the best way possible. The story completely takes over and has it all.Lots of angst - check.A tortured hero - check.The horrible, evil, villain I wanted to punch in the face - check.An incredibly sweet, touching love story - TRIPLE check.I simply couldn't put the book down, and [...]

    21. OmgG!!!!!This book was one of the best things I have ever read. And I read A LOT.So, I wish I could rew it -but any sentence I write could count as a spoiler- and you do not want this to get spoiled!No go and read it yourself! ^^

    22. My review contains spoilers and they're mostly my thoughts as I went with the bookAh, Untouched is all about Matthew for me. From top to bottom, left to right, from north, south, east and west. Everywhere. I loved him, I loved his brilliance, his honesty, his ardent devotion to Grace (some lucky chit!) and last but not the least, yah, the fact that he was a virgin in the beginning of the story! Of course I love men who know what they’re doing but Matthew Doesn’t matter when it comes to him. [...]

    23. 3.5 StarsSo this is a book that I've heard about since I started reading Historical Romance. I've heard it's amazing, wonderful, etc. etc. and as with all things that are built up, the reality is sometimes disappointing.The premise of this book is dark, dark, dark. The hero, Matthew, Lord Sheene, is a prisoner held captive by his grasping Uncle who took advantage of a fever that Matthew got in his teens. The fever gave him seizures and from there the Uncle claimed Matthew was mad and was able to [...]

    24. 3.5 Stars! My October Pick-It-For-Me over in Western and Medieval Romance Lovers. Never tried this author before, but I've heard good things. Within just the first few pages, I thought it was very interesting. I was curious about the situation the main characters were in, especially the hero, Matthew. How had he come to be there, and why had his uncle been allowed to get away with what he was doing. Matthew was very intriguing at first. His cold, disbelieving attitude had me wondering what it wa [...]

    25. 5++++++++++++++!!!!!!!!!!!!! It's official! I love the HR author Anna Campbell! This is the second title I have read by AC and I loved it!!!!!!!!!!Matthew Lansdowne (I'm predisposed to love an H named Matthew!) Marquess of Sheene is not the typical alpha-type H that is common in HR. Instead he has been certified as a lunatic and has been locked away for 11 years since the age of 14 by his evil uncle and guardian Lord John. There is a reason why uncle evil can't simply kill Matt. As a matter of f [...]

    26. I created a thread in the HR forums about a book similar to Flowers from the storm because I really liked it. My thread was hijacked by someone requesting a tortured hero suggestion, two people suggested this book, so I said well may be I will give it a try it may be as good as Flowers from the storm………not likely, not even close. Untouched is indeed about torture but it isn’t the hero it is the reader. I was so disappointed, I am not sure why people even rated it high, the first 15 chapt [...]

    27. I really wish we could give half stars because this one for me was better than a four star but not quite a five star; I rate Untouched a solid 4 1/2 stars!!There are some very good reviews on this book already so I will only touch on a few quick points.Matthew, the hero, is fantastic!! He is one of the best heroes ever written in the literary world, in my opinion. He was afflicted with an extreme illness that left him unable to do anything for himself (for a time), imprisoned in a home in the co [...]

    28. Rating: 4 out of 5.Untouched by Anna CampbellDo you love virgin heroes? Tick.Do you like tragic heroes? Tick.Do you like beautiful heroes? TICK!Grace Paget, a beautiful widow left destitute by her husband’s death, makes arrangements with her cousin to go live with them. Left waiting in a shady neighbourhood by her cousin who was delayed, she gets picked up by two brutes who mistake her for a prostitute. This leads to her being held captive for the beautiful but crazy Lord Matthew Sheene. Beaut [...]

    29. I ended up wanting to read this one because I've been looking for books where the guy is completely clueless when it comes to a female, since I've been bombarding myself with so many alpha male books. It's fun to break out of the normal mold to try something different.The first half felt sort of slow to me, but the ending was quite adorable and made me sort of have one of those awwww moments.

    30. 2.5 stars. These stars are only for Matthew who is a beautiful character.++Spoilers++What destroys a book for me is an unlikeable h. Grace started out likeable, but when she ruined her first love making encounter with Matthew by getting angry at him for lack of satisfying her ended my like for her for the rest of the story. He was a virgin, she loved him (although she wouldn't admit it to herself) and he loved her, yet her selfish treatment of his first experience was terrible. He felt so bad th [...]
