Historical Romance
Provoked (Enlightenment) - Joanna Chambers

Provoked is a historical romance by Joanna Chambers. This is a M/M romance, so it may not be for everyone. Ms. Chambers has given readers a well-written book. David is a farmer's son and lawyer. Murdo is the younger son of a marquess. David and Murdo's story is packed with drama, sex and intrigue. I enjoyed this book but the end while not being a cliff-hanger, left you wondering. Provoked is book 1 of the Enlightenment Series.

Ok so I know I’ve said this before but it bears repeating…
Gentleman Wolf - Joanna Chambers

I’m not a big fan of historical books but when I read Ms Chamber’s ‘Enlightenment’ series I was totally enchanted I loved that series her writing was superb and each story just enchanted me…and when I saw the blurb for ‘Gentleman Wolf’…in spite of this I still had reservations because…shifters again not a big favorite for me but surprise! I was good with this part of the story as well.


This has all led me to the conclusion that Ms Chambers is magic. She took two of what is quite honestly my least favorite story genres and mixed them together and created something that I really, really enjoyed…magic I tell you, her writing is sheer magic!

Lindsay Somerville has been hiding in Paris and I say hiding because that’s where Francis and Marguerite have been hiding him from Duncan MacCormaic after freeing Lindsay from the dungeon, he’s been held prisoner in for years.


When news reaches them that Duncan is heading for Paris, Lindsay is sent to Edinburgh on business in an effort to keep him out of Duncan’s hands. His task is to acquire the Naismith Papers, the writings of a long-dead witchfinder. It’s during the commission of this task that Lindsay meets the very staid architect, Drew Nicol. The man who turns out to be Lindsay’s bond-mate.


Lindsay in some ways is a man who’s ahead of his times…he’s comfortable with his sexuality and while he’s not marching around advertising that he’s gay. If you pay attention the subtle signs are there for anyone who wants to see them. He’s colorful and a bit of a chameleon when it comes to both his appearance and his behavior. Lindsay’s one of the more interesting characters that I’ve encountered in a story for a while now and I really enjoyed him.


Drew’s drawn to Lindsay but at the same time he’s determined to fight the attraction. He’s not comfortable with Lindsay’s flamboyance and peacock attire. In some ways Drew is Lindsay’s polar opposite in terms of appearance and behavior.


While Drew is fighting his attraction to Lindsay…Lindsay is conflicted in his own right. He’s struggling to try and not force himself on Drew but he just can’t quite bring himself to stay away.


Things started out a bit on the slow side for me.  But it was when the events of Lindsay’s business and his personal life begin to get interwoven that things also begin to get really interesting. Even though Lindsay’s business isn’t directly connected to his relationship with Drew, things become increasingly intertwined and before he realizes what’s truly happening Lindsay finds himself face to face with his past and his bond-mate has been drawn into its path. A path that’s going to alter both of their futures. 


The dynamics between Francis, Marguerite and Lindsay seemed to be that of family and then there was Wynne who seems to be Lindsay’s Butler/manservant/companion/ friend.


‘Gentleman Wolf’ is the first book in Ms Chambers ‘Capital Wolves’ series and unlike some series the stories are not self contained so readers need to be prepared for the fact that the ending of this book is not the ending of Lindsay and Drew’s story and while it’s not what I would call a cliffhanger but more of a natural break in the story, I’m already looking forward to what comes next.




An ARC of ‘Werewolf Gentleman’ was graciously provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.

Enlightened - Joanna Chambers PERFECTION

“It’s just, I’ve loved you for so long, David. I really didn’t think you felt the same way.”


I've been fully immersed in David and Murdo's story this week and my only regret is that I didn't finish this series sooner.

Trust me,if you're a fan of MM romance and Historical romance this series is a MUST read.

I'm very late to the party here,there are so many great reviews about so I'll just say....MURDO....I honestly couldn't love a character more...

I feel as though I should be quoting Shakespeare...something profound to explain how much I adored this character but I'll just show how much I was into him,






Highly Recommended!!

“I don’t know what this thing between us is,” Murdo said, and he sounded genuinely bewildered. “But I can’t give it up. I can’t give you up.”

Little help
Tribute Act - Joanna Chambers

This is book #8, in the Porthkennack series.  This title can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader enjoyment and understanding of the series, I always recommend reading the series books in order.


Mack & Nathan have a hot history.  One that they agreed they would keep private.  Mack is already under the weather and needs to recuperate without added stress.  Only he wants to be more with Nathan and does not know how.


Nathan is really needing to move on.  For right now, he helps a man who he wants to keep.  Only he promised to keep things simple.  Can he convince his new roomy that complicated is better?


This was such a sweet story.  Unexpectedly light in some parts, I really felt the story deeply.  I sure hope we see these characters again.  Compelling for more than one reason, this book is a sure win!  I give this story a 3/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
