Overview

Smite Turner is renowned for his single-minded devotion to his duty as a magistrate. But behind his relentless focus lies not only a determination to do what is right, but the haunting secrets of his past--secrets that he is determined to hide, even if it means keeping everyone else at arm's length. Until the day an irresistible woman shows up as a witness in his courtroom...

Miranda Darling isn't in trouble...yet. But she's close enough that when Turner threatens her with imprisonment if she puts one foot wrong, she knows she should run in the other direction. And yet no matter how forbidding the man seems on the outside, she can't bring herself to leave. Instead, when he tries to push her away, she pushes right back--straight through his famous self-control, and into the heart of the passion that he has long hidden away...

    Milan at her finest

    Milan has one of the most unique regency voices. I have loved everything she has written, so I am most definetely a biased fangirl. Watching her voice evolve from Proof of seduction to now has been one of my greatest reading pleasures of the last 3 years. I was a little afraid that I woyld not enjoy her new self-published work as much. However, Milan is a shining example of how to do self-pub right. Beautifully formatted, tightly edited, same great voice & quality. And Smite. Smite makes the book worthy of the keeper shelf. If you like dark, tortured heroes , this is your book.

    The best in the series!

    This is the first ebook I ever bought, and it was absolutely worth it! This trilogy just got a little bit better with each book. Milan's characters are refreshingly original, and her writing is stellar.

    Loved it!

    Loved this book! I laughed, I cried, I sighed! Ms. Milan writes like no other. She gives an edginess to her characters and the plot turns away from any expected cliches. I loved all 3 books in the trilogy, but Smite and Miranda were my favorites.

    The third and final book in the brilliant Turner series by Court

    The third and final book in the brilliant Turner series by Courtney Milan. This is the first and only series I’ve read by Milan and I’m extremely impressed with her voice, her pacing, and her very complex and troubled characters. This series is set in early Victorian England and is about three brothers raised by an unstable and overzealous mother. The impacts on the brothers is as varied as their personalities yet they maintain a strong, implacable bond now as adults. 
    Smite Turner is a determined and scrupulous magistrate—known as Lord Justice—living minimally and in stark contrast for the brother of a duke in Bristol, England. As a child, he was abused by his mother and, as an adult, he doles out justice for those who go unheard, as he once did. His duty is his life. Until Miranda. Like the book’s titles, his carefully crafted life becomes unraveled.
    "When they needed someone, I was there. I listened. I acted. What happened to me won’t happen to them. Not while I can prevent it."
    ”’I fear being caged by luxury. I fear that one day I will no longer understand desperation, and with that, I will slowly stop listening to what others have to say.’”
    “‘The truth is simply this: you can find a better man than I. God knows you wouldn’t have to look very hard. But I don’t believe you can find one who loves you more.’”
    Miranda Darling is a survivor. Living in the slums with a young boy she saved, a child of fellow actors like herself, they live a hand to mouth existence. She is saved—sort of—by the protection of a dangerous entity known as the Patron, who keeps her safe, protects her virtue, but expects her to do illegal favors for them in exchange for this protection. She’s tied to them and walks a precarious line of fear and a desire to change her life for the better.
    "So Miranda had kept him. In books, women reduced to straitened circumstances always surrounded themselves with kind, adoring loved ones through pluck and determination."
    When she meets Smite, he is immediately enchanted by her. Like himself, she is a survivor, but he also feels a calm and peace with her that he has never felt before. He invites her to become his mistress and they embark on a one-month affair, growing closer together as the days tick by.
    Miranda notices Smite’s kind heart behind the stoic facade, something that endears her to him.
    ”’No man is broken because bad things happen to him. He’s broken because he doesn’t keep going after those things happen. When you told me about your mother, and how it made you resolve to be the person you are…What I thought was, ‘Yes, please, I’ll take him.’ Because you didn’t break.”
    The rich familial relationships Milan creates are wonderful. They remind me of the strong family dynamics that Grace Burrowes also writes about in her Windham series. Richard Dalrymple, a cousin and one-time best friend of Smite’s, begs forgiveness for a long-ago quarrel. It is a heartwarming reconciliation, however tentative. And Smite’s loving relationship with his brothers, Ash, and Mark. Words alone cannot aptly describe their camaraderie and understanding.
    Miranda understands Smite like no other woman. Their love affair is passionate, sexy, and endearing. She gets him. And loves him for who he is.
    ”’What? That he’d fall in love and turn into an ordinary man?’ Miranda choked on the words. ‘Anyone who loved him would never want that. It would be like loving the ocean, but wishing it would change into a glass of water.’”
    The covers perfectly capture Miranda’s orange red hair and are both beautiful.
    A lovely and smart love story. I very much look forward to reading everything else this author has written.

    I couldnt get enough of this story. Smite is fascinating. My heart ached but I never doubted the power of his love nor Miranda's courage. This is a wonderful journey made only better by the book's lovely length

    As always Ms Milan writes great love stories. Smite was the mos

    As always Ms Milan writes great love stories.
    Smite was the most damaged of the turner brothers, and the one who needed to make the most amends.
    The first book of the series was about Ash, and the best. You should read it if you have not. It's absolutely amazing.
    Because Smite is harder and more complicated, the romance is not flowery but kind of weird. Miranda has "to read between the lines" to understand what Smite really means.
    The story talks a lot about the slums in Bristol and the difficulties of getting justice for the poor. And to look out of place was to be found guilty of some crime.
