I'm obsessed with K.J. Charles, and I think she is an exceptionally talented author. However, this one didn't grab me like her other books.
The book is very adventure-y, and while I sometimes like stories like that, I usually like more character-focused works. I like lots of slow burn...

I enjoyed this story because it's K.J. Charles, so of course the writing is engaging, the dialogue masterful, and the sense of time and place (in this case London 1805) strong.
Theo makes his living putting together a sort of "city weekly" for those seeking marriage or more. Not all the ads...

I just get so sucked in...

This is a light, fun, classic romance that would be a great choice for introducing an M/F historicals reader to the M/M genre. It gives us two great characters, a touch of well-researched historical background, an amusing adventure and a plot that is not too tropey, but which harks back to the cl...

Favorite Quote: “You don’t give an inch, do you?”
“I just took at least eight,” Theo pointed out.
I really need to go back and read KJ Charles’s backlist – as I’ve only read a couple by her and what I have read I’ve really enjoyed. In this book she gives us a more serious stoic hero paired with a w...
