FINALLY! Jasper’s story! Jasper was interesting and intriguing from the moment I met him in Third Son’s a Charm. I knew he needed a really special heroine and he certainly got her in Olivia. This book is excellently and intelligently written, well-plotted, and it has a lovely romance. The book title is also perfect – and often, that isn’t the case.

Jasper Grantham is the youngest son of the Marquess of Strathern. He had joined the military, as was

Jasper was badly maimed during the war, he wears a mask to hide his external scars, but lives in the shadows to hide his internal ones. Jasper has a knack for finding things and currently his mission is to find Viscount Carlisle's runaway daughter and bring her home. This should be a straightforward mission, he will find her, bring her home to her family and then slink back in ...more

Unmask Me If You Can is my favorite book in Shana Galen’s Survivor series. It’s an emotional story filled with fabulously written characters, great dialogue, romance and intrigue.
Jasper Grantham was a member of Draven’s dozen, an elite group of men who fought in the Peninsular War. Draven’s troop was given the most dangerous assignments. Jasper was badly burned when he ran back into a burning building to save a member of his troop. He wears a mask to cover the burns. Olivia Carlisle was betroth

This is a forth telling in The Survivor series and we finally get Jasper's story. As I read his story I realized that it helped that I've read the previous books in this series. I could understand the story and its origins better.

In contrast to the third book, this story's heroine was someone I liked immensely and cared for her plight. She was strong and caring, a perfect match for the hero who was her equal.

Their story was touching and compelling. My second favorite in this series, for sure.

Jasper Grantham was one of a group of soldiers that we would call special-ops. He survived the war with France and feels guilty for living when others died. His face is badly scarred, and he hides it by wearing a scarf so not to frighten others. He earns his money as a bounty hunter, finding missing people. His current job is to find Miss Carlisle. The Duke of Withernsea wants her found, but Jasper refuses to work for him for reasons you’ll discover. Her father, Viscount Carlisle, has hired him ...more

Another Survivor finds his HEA! This time with a little forced proximity meets road trip romance meets single parent as the backdrop!

Jasper has been intriguing to me since he first showed up in Third Sons a Charm and now we get not only his story but that of a woman who bravely faces her past for herself, her son, and other women!
Having a seriously scarred hero would be a challenge for most authors but Shana Galen handled the descriptions of Jasper’s physical scars with a frank deliberateness

This was the book I was waiting for and it doesn't disappoint! Jasper is the noble unsung hero whose scars only enhance his appeal and Olivia is the brave heroine that sees beyond them. A wonderful love story, filled with honor, patience, and bravery. I love this couple and all they surmount to get to their HEA. Little Richard is a dear and you'd have to be very hardened not to get teary-eyed when he tries to persuade Jasper to be his father!

I knew the first time Jasper appeared in Third Son's a Charm that his story would not disappoint. Jasper and Olivia are two people that have something horrible in their pasts that they need to overcome. Their passion and understanding of each other is rare and perfect. It was amazing how easily they seemed to click and light a spark between them. The whole time they were together in that cottage was like a fairytale. When they got to London it was another creature. Certain peoples lies and plans ...more

At one point in her life, Olivia didn’t have more worries than wear pretty gowns and attend the most fashionable balls. Now? Now she has more pressing, more important things to worry about, mainly her full of life and curious five year old son Richard. Jasper may have looked scary with that mask covering half his face but his considerate and honorable behavior was enough to bring down the walls Olivia had erected around her heart.
I have to say that Jasper was not exactly how I ima

I loved this book! I expected to like it, but I was not prepared for the depth of this story or how it would touch my heart. This is a historical story that is appropriate for it's Regency setting while also seeming particularly relevant for contemporary times. I adored the element of female characters standing up for and supporting each other. I also loved the main characters, Jasper and Olivia.

I think one of the things that made this book unique was that it was set at first outside of London

Olivia Carlisle had run away from her home in London five years ago. She had thought she and her five year-old son Richard were relatively safe on the southern coast of England, until Richard found an injured man on the shore. Jasper Grantham had been looking for Olivia because her deathly ill mother wanted to see her daughter one more time. Jasper is not sure what to think: was he stabbed by Olivia’s enemy or was it coincidence?

Finally, Jasper’s story! I had been waiting so long for this book,

Unmask Me If You Can is the fourth entry in the Survivors series by best-selling author Shana Galen. It is a delightful Regency Romance between two people who have scars that need to heal before they truly find love.
Olivia Carlisle had built a good but very modest life for her son while hiding out on the southern coast of England. She left home and her place in London’s society after being brutally raped by the man she was expected to marry. Her world was changed forever when her son, Richard,
I loved this one! Do yourself a favor and grab it! Just make sure you have some reading time blocked out because you won't be able to put it down once you've started. I've read all the books in the series thus far and this one is now my favorite. I'm a sucked for a good tortured/scarred hero and Ms. Galen sure knows how to write one. Jasper has been skulking around the shadows of previous books and it was great to see him step into the light and have his story told this time. I already can't wai ...more

I think Jasper, The Bounty Hunter of Draven's suicide troup, is my favorite hero so far. He doesn't see himself as a hero but his face is badly scarred from failing to save one of this troup brothers pinned down in a burning house. All of the survivors of Draven's hand picked "black ops" troup are scarred by the war, each differently.

The Survivors series is one inspirational story after another. Jasper has survived a horrendous burn. He thinks he is so deformed that he must hide his face. It takes love to teach him otherwise. The spirit and acceptance of a child helps Jasper to see that he is not hideous. Olivia is a strong determined woman. She doesn't need a man. But she is shocked to realize she wants one. This one. Can they both let down their guards to allow love to grow roots?
4.5 Wonderful Stars.

What a great lovely book that this one is. I could not put it down.

Thanks Shana Galen for this great book.

I have been looking forward to Jasper’s story since reading the first book of this series and Shana Galen did not disappoint! I love how Olivia and Jasper’s back stories are just as serious as each other. Jasper might have serious external pain but Olivia’s pain is internal and just as serious if not more and is handled delicately and expertly. Through empathy, understanding and recognizing/admiring each other’s strengths they fall in love. The plot had me interested right to the end. I really w ...more

A women who is dying wants him to find her daughter. Olivia Carlisle has a son and he found a man. She wants to leave him, but her son gets her to take care of the man.

I’ve enjoyed all of The Survivors books so far and this latest one really tugged at my heartstrings.

When little Richard finds Lord Jasper Grantham, the younger son of the Marquess of Strathern, lying injured from a knife wound, Olivia doesn’t want anything to do with him but can’t leave him to die.

Another fantastic page-turner from this consistently excellent author! This time her hero has been physically deformed in an act of heroism that didn't succeed, and so is left with not just survivor's guilt but a conviction that he's so ugly no-one could possibly love him again - or even look at him without being repulsed. As a result he travels an extraordinarily long road between the first and last pages of this book and there are a number of tearjerker sections as well as the sexy, sweet, rom ...more

I love Olivia! Strong heroines are the best! Both the hero and heroine have fears to face and risks to take and Shana Galen tells the story perfectly. I was drawn into their story and was rooting for a good outcome. There were definitely some tense moments! I look forward to reading about the other Survivors as the series continues.

I've read all The Survivors books by Ms. Galen and I have to say that Jasper's story was my favorite. Jasper Grantham, the youngest son of the Marquess of Strathern, fought in the war and came home with terrible burns and scars to half his face. He wears a mask over his scars and only takes it off for his fellow soldiers at the Draven club.

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review. This is the fourth book in the Survivor’s series and one book I have been looking forward to reading. Unmask Me If You Can is Jasper Grantham’s story. We have met Jasper in the previous Survivor books and I believe I speak for many when I say the curiosity surrounding him made many readers look forward to his story finally unfolding on the pages of a book, as well as offering him a chance at true love.

I've enjoyed all of the books in Galen's The Survivors series but Jasper and Olivia's story is my favorite. They both carry deep emotional trauma that has led them to hide from others. For Olivia, it meant running away from everything and everyone she knew while Jasper hides his burns beneath a silk mask and his emotional vulnerability even deeper. I liked that the first half of the book takes place in Olivia's secluded cliff-side cottage with the only human interaction between Jasper, Olivia, a ...more
