    Gorgeously, perfectly done I adored it even if the book really isn t my genre K.J Charles is changing the face of M M, I m telling you She keeps coming up with this brilliant, well written stuff that elevates the whole genre Think of England is another exceptional book and I loved it almost as much as her The Magpie Lord series Is it a GFY No, I wouldn t say so This book is sort of like a coming of age or sexual awakening, only the person waking up is way past adolescence Curtis was Gorgeously, perfectly done I adored it even if the book really isn t my genre K.J Charles is changing the face of M M, I m telling you She keeps coming up with this brilliant, well written stuff that elevates the whole genre Think of England is another exceptional book and I loved it almost as much as her The Magpie Lord series Is it a GFY No, I wouldn t say so This book is sort of like a coming of age or sexual awakening, only the person waking up is way past adolescence Curtis was glorious in his discovery of his same sex tendencies Deliciously hot I was also obsessed with Daniel, who was flawlessly written It was strange for me seeing a character openly mocked for being Jewish I m so spoiled living where I live, both geographically and in this period of history I ve never encountered outright antisemitism I ll admit, reading some of the insults against Daniel stung a little It just made me admire him eonsHe had the triple whammy of being Jewish, Portuguese, and obviously gay in a time where none of those things were tolerated I was in awe of his strength, resilience, and his ability to adapt I could read books and books about Daniel Though this book was nearly perfect in many respects, it still, at it s core, isn t the type of book that I can easily give 5 stars to I simply don t enjoy mysteries and suspense that much Too much danger makes me impossibly anxious and sweaty, and no one likes a sweaty Heather This book gave me the cold sweats, and I found myself rushing it a bit because I had too much anxiety about what was to happen next Oddly enough, I can tolerate suspense and danger in my paranormal book much easier I think in those types of reads, I KNOW the hero is going to pull some magic out of his arse and get the bad guys But with real people Real situations, like in this book Yeah, I m not strong enough.So, yes, this book was amazing Yes, all of the reviews are correct And, YES, I m happy that sweat fest is over

    I love Edwardian pulp, but I do love it I love Golden Age pre WWI Britain, with well dressed gentlemen and dastardly foreigners, stiff upper lips and country house parties, derring do and plots and amateur spies John Buchan, Edgar Wallace, E Phillips Oppenheim, and the other wonderful writers of a time when to be a straight white English gentleman was to be at the pinnacle of human civilisation Obviously, if you weren t white, or upper class, or Christian, or male, or straight, it wasn t q I love Edwardian pulp, but I do love it I love Golden Age pre WWI Britain, with well dressed gentlemen and dastardly foreigners, stiff upper lips and country house parties, derring do and plots and amateur spies John Buchan, Edgar Wallace, E Phillips Oppenheim, and the other wonderful writers of a time when to be a straight white English gentleman was to be at the pinnacle of human civilisation Obviously, if you weren t white, or upper class, or Christian, or male, or straight, it wasn t quite so much fun The fiction of the time is shocking to modern readers with its casual prejudices in particular the anti Semitism with which the era is so foully infected But there s also the almost automatic villainy of queer people and sexually aware women the restrictive class structure the assumed inferiority of non white and non British.I love the balls to the wall plotting and milieu of Edwardian pulp, but the prejudices make it a guilty pleasure So I wrote my own Edwardian pulp, my way Think of England features British officer and gentleman Archie Curtis, tackling a dastardly plot in a country house Because Archie needed shaking up, I gave him decadent Jewish poet Daniel da Silva to spar with not English, not white, not a gentleman and very definitely not straight And then I sat back to see how long it would take Daniel to turn Archie s life upside down I had immense fun with this book I hope you enjoy it

    Jesus he yelped I fear not, said a silky voice, and Curtis realized that he had collided with da Silva Both Jewish, of course, but the resemblance ends there 3.5 stars What really happened is that I was completely enthralled for a good part of the story, around 50% , before it started to feel relatively monotonous and my interest slowly decreasing It didn t happen soon, for sure, but, by the last chapters, I just wanted to get to the ending and, naturally, the HEA I nee Jesus he yelped I fear not, said a silky voice, and Curtis realized that he had collided with da Silva Both Jewish, of course, but the resemblance ends there 3.5 stars What really happened is that I was completely enthralled for a good part of the story, around 50% , before it started to feel relatively monotonous and my interest slowly decreasing It didn t happen soon, for sure, but, by the last chapters, I just wanted to get to the ending and, naturally, the HEA I needed it Perhaps I m too generous, but I do think the main characters, romance and writing to deserve it enough.For the first time, I find it hard to give my opinion on paper Not because I m afraid or shy or anything of the sort my bluntness will actually be my undoing, but because my thoughts seem to contradict themselves I loved the romance, I found the romance to be too tame for my liking I adored the writing, but didn t understand every word and expression my fault perhaps Curtis was great, but lacked of dept De Silva started off being fun And expressive And intense But then he changed and a vulnerable side of him started to show itself and the humour was not present any The pacing was okay, really neither slow nor fast Some may find it indeed slow but the many dialogs that the plot contained made it agreeable to read He felt a pulse of alarm and then realized that it must be da Silva going to his own rooms Of course the man would be his neighbour Naturally It would be nice, he thought with justified irritation, if Fate could stop throwing that limp wristed thieving bloody dago in his way Ah the plot When I pick M M romances up, I do not always look at the sub genres I see M M romance and, if no werewolves are involved sorry, do not care for those creatures much then it s fine by me And historical fiction tends to have its own charm Except, I did not expect the plot to beimportant than the romance itself If I would shelf this book in order of principal genres, historical fiction would go on first There were multiple chapters or scenes in which da Silva was not even present or, if he was, the scenes in question didn t wish to focus on him And, you see, I wantedbackground on him, for he was my favorite character and it is sad that I hardly could describe him to you Oh dear, I got lost in myself Why I fear the plot did not appeal to me is because of what consequences it had on the setting and some characters See, the two main characters could not leave the property so variety of settings it lacked And there weren t many strong connections either Curtis seemed to despise or simply not care about any of the hosts or guests, as did da Silva Which made that I did not either The secondary characters looked like accessories or necessity to the plot alone Forgettable.I did not intend on bringing up so many negative points, because I did enjoy this, hence the 3.5 rating It s been some time since I last found a character that will stay with me after closing a book, but da Silva surely will I mean, I would be very surprised if someone told me they hated his character he was so loveable and innocent somehow And Curtis may not have been exciting or unearthly charming but he was a good hero for the story And strong And sweet a bit too much, mind me Both characters repeatedly apologized for every single misinterpreted thing.Such a beautiful writing style this author possesses She definitely was born to write historical or fantasy with an historical vibe books I m repeating myself, but words seem to come so naturally to her and she always takes in consideration the context with her choice of words.Verdict This had a great writing, cute romance with a lot of angst, adequate pacing, not a strong but a good enough atmosphere, lack of settings and importance for the secondary characters, plotting and secrecy throughout the read

The ending was view spoiler a tentative HFN, which I considered realistic considering the time place and Archie s upbringing and recent change of heart hide spoiler This book definitely felt like the beginning of a series, and I can t say I m sorry about that There s surelyto Archie and Daniel s story
