Review: The Gentleman and the Rogue
The Gentleman and the Rogue - Jasper de Montfort,Bonnie Dee,Summer Devon

This was a M/M historical romance.  It was a fun escape from the currently reality. The story read like a fanfic I once read, but that's a compliment as most fanfic I have read is as good as or better than many novels.  The narration and just meh.  There was no emotion to it, which took from the story.  Not bad, but not great.

The Gentleman and the Lamplighter - Summer Devon
Giles is a lonely gentleman and John is a widowed lamplighter.  Sitting out on his front steps Giles looks like he might be drunk and John tries to help him only to learn this is where Giles lives.  They start walking together and become friends when John invites Giles into his home where the two act on the attraction between them.
This was too short.  I wish it were longer.  I wanted to know how an affair between the two men would develop.  I liked both men a lot.  John was upbeat and helped Giles see things through different eyes.  A good story.  I would read this author again.

"Thirty-five and ye still believe in goblins?"
The Gentleman and the Rogue - Bonnie Dee,Summer Devon
"You are rather like a child" Alan said, but he didn't sound scornful, and his tight mouth had relaxed. 
" I skipped that part o'life. So I decided to try again when I can". 

Meet two VERY different from each other characters. The stone-cold-and-composed at first sight Sir Alan and the easy-going-I -always -have-something-to-say boy from the streets Jem. 
The meet accidentally and the irresistible charms of our Jem capture Alan's attention immediately. 
The book starts with a very intriguing dialogue between the two of them that got me hooked from page one. 
But I'll be honest- I didn't like Jem much at first. I thought he lacks dignity.I know, I know... However, as the action unfolded and our characters had a very difficult task ahead, he won my respect and trust with the way he cooped with the situation and the risks he took. 

Overall, this is a very good historical novel with lovable characters, who don't get their happy ending easily. 
Oh, and there is a story about a goblin.

Delaney and the Autumn Masque (Bonnie Dee & Summer Devon)
Delaney and the Autumn Masque (Victorian Holiday Hearts Book 4) - Summer Devon,Bonnie Dee

3.5 stars

I think this might be the last book of Dee/Devon Victorian Holiday Hearts novella series; it featured Delaney Andrews one of the Andrews' foster kids. I really enjoyed the first part where Delaney and Bartholomew met on the masque party. There was something quite sensual about it, when you met the strangers while using masks.

The relationship progress was lovely and I was happy that Bartholomew was able to live doing what he enjoyed doing (making jewelry!!) :)

The Private Secretary (Summer Devon)
The Private Secretary - Summer Devon

Hmmm... I felt that the secondary plot that involved Robert's cousin -- who suffered from autism (based on Summer Devon's blog post) -- and his antics took the spotlight from the romance between Ezra and Robert. I found Ambrose to be a quite appealing as character, although he lacked of understanding in social interaction. He just felt more real than our MCs; his presence strong.

Ezra and Robert were okay, but I thought they lacked chemistry as a couple. It felt like Ezra was quite displeased about Robert (because of Francis) before, although Robert made his case by not playing the arrogant snob that Ezra thought. Anyway, I just didn't really convinced about them, or what led to their first intimacy session at the inn.

Also, when the story started, and Ezra was talking about Francis (and Francis was heartbroken because of Robert's rejection), I was quite confused and thought that this was a sequel to another book about Francis. Kinda took me out of the story right then, and needed a while to get into it.
