Talk about a compromising situation! A storm of political intrigue, murderous mayhem and sexual hungers is brewing on planet Regelence. Swarthy Intergalactic Navy Captain Nathaniel Hawkins ran from a past he had no intention of ever reliving. But when his Admiral asks him to use his peerage, as an earl and the heir to a dukedom, to investigate a missing weapons stash, he’s forced to do just that. As if being undercover on a Regency planet where the young men are supposed to remain pure until marriage isn’t bad enough, Nate finds himself attracted to the king’s unmarried son. All Prince Aiden Townsend has ever wanted was to be an artist. He has no interest in a marriage of political fortune or becoming a societal paragon. Until he lands in the arms of the mysterious Earl of Deverell. One look at Nate’s handsome face has Aiden reconsidering his future. Not only does Nate make a virile subject for Aiden’s art, but the great war hero awakens feelings in Aiden he has never felt, feelings he can’t ignore. After a momentous dance at a season ball, Aiden and Nate find themselves exchanging important information and working closely together. They have to fight their growing attraction long enough to find out who stole the weapons and keep themselves from a compromising situation and certain scandal.

Not as good as the first time around, maybe 3.5 stars.Insane amount of characters with nick-names, titles and birth-names drove me almost to the mad house this time. How did I keep up in the first place, I have no idea - this is clearly some kind of name porn read. Chadwick, Coldwell, Cony, Jeremy, ...
I loved the whole concept of this book. The idea that it was the young lords rather than young ladies was so unique and fun. It was like reading a historical m/f romance but so definitely not!
When I started reading, I actually groaned. A duel? I felt like I was reading a bodice ripper like I used to back in the day. I read so many that I never wanted to read another again. Then, I got sucked in. A sci-fi space regency romance that takes place in the 4800s? Okay, that’s a new one. ...
This was a very interesting read! The author's other works gave me my first introduction to m/m romance, but I really enjoyed this story. Aiden was slightly too girly, but there was a subtle thread of dominance and submission running throughout the romance that made his girly nature into an asset....
dates are most recent re-read. wouldn't have expected a year ago that some of my most treasured comfort reads would be MM romances. love this story and its sequel, and am excited for the third one late this year.
