The premise of this book immediately hooked me. Two dominants sparring with each other, even by telephone? Yes, please. However, Jo and Spencer immediately proved themselves to be amazing and three-dimensional characters. That 3D part is key in a sub-genre not always known for its subtlety. Continue reading
I started this series on the recommendation of a friend who is a romance author, and I devoured this sexy novella in a single evening. I had certain preconceptions about the two main characters based on the back-cover text, which were smashed immediately.
The heroine Myst, especially, was not what I expected at all. The intricate world-building enhances the complexity of her character, and I look forward to learning about the magical elements of this paranormal romance world. Also, she’s hilarious, which will always make me favor a character. Continue reading
The two following reviews are of content freely available on the author’s website as supplemental material to the Society of Gentlemen series. Neither can be read as stand-alone, but are best enjoyed following a read of the full series. Continue reading

Andrew and Edmund, and their relationship with each other, continue to delight. Continue reading

My favorite thing about this series is that it doesn’t follow the traditional romance script. While the story is inherently about the evolving relationship between two characters, the big climactic moment is not the two characters breaking up because one thinks that they are not good enough for the other. Instead, the threat is always external, in a way that shows the characters just how much they want (and should) to be together instead. To borrow a term from this book in particular, that seems to be catnip to me. Continue reading
