A Gentleman Never Keeps Score by Cat Sebastian 1.99!!!
A Gentleman Never Keeps Score - Cat Sebastian

Once beloved by London's fashionable elite, Hartley Sedgwick has become a recluse after a spate of salacious gossip exposed his most-private secrets. Rarely venturing from the house whose inheritance is a daily reminder of his downfall, he’s captivated by the exceedingly handsome man who seeks to rob him.

 

Since retiring from the boxing ring, Sam Fox has made his pub, The Bell, into a haven for those in his Free Black community. But when his best friend Kate implores him to find and destroy a scandalously revealing painting of her, he agrees. Sam would do anything to protect those he loves, even if it means stealing from a wealthy gentleman. But when he encounters Hartley, he soon finds himself wanting to steal more than just a painting from the lovely, lonely man—he wants to steal his heart.

A Gentleman for Christmas by Prescott Lane
A Gentleman for Christmas - Prescott Lane

 

 

The world believes he has has it all together. Little do they know he's still a work in progress. Sometimes it takes a missed opportunity to remind us what we're missing. A Gentleman for Christmas is a captivating look at love, friendship and second chances. Jax is the man with all the answers. Skylar is the girl that got away. Can the man with a plan, convince the girl of his dreams to risk her heart on him? Prescott Lane brings a fascinating twist to self help with an adorably tempting romantic comedy. Sentiment and humor come together to make a mesmerizing read.

Keep On Trying: "The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman" by Laurence Sterne
The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman - Joan New,Melvyn New,Laurence Sterne



(Original Review, 2002-06-20)



Many very good books are not difficult to read--at least for the people who read them and have read them. But books can become difficult when difference of culture, or viewpoint, or language, or elapsed time intervene. Dickens is more difficult now than 150 years ago, and part of the reward of reading Dickens is the learning of how British society has changed. The difficulty of reading Virgil might include learning some Latin; the difficulty of reading Dante might involve at least a parallel text edition.

My kids' school had their fall book sale; Sophia got a My Little Pony Early Reader book, Joshua got a Beast Quest book and a box of rocks (comes with a booklet to explain the different rocks). Then I picked up for both of them Women in Science: 50 Fearless Pioneers Who Changed the World and Poppy Field.

 

This weekend we will be out adventuring around our town, taking in the different activities going on for Remembrance Weekend. On Monday I am taking a trip to London to see Chicago the Musical; since I am not driving, I hope to get some reading while traveling. Glad I got my flu shot this week. 

 

With the Festive Task game underway, I am trying to catch up so I can add up my points for the doors opened so far. I am halfway through Let the Circle Be Unbroken and Princess Elizabeth's Spy, so they are the priority right now. Then it is on to A Gentleman's Game and Love's Unfading Light.

 

Happy Veterans' Day to my brothers and sisters in arms. Happy reading to everyone! See you all on Tuesday.

Book: A Gentleman's Game (Romance on the Turf #1) by Theresa Romain (book about horses, horse breeders, and horse racing set in Newmarket). Will update points on the discussion board when I am done reading.

 

Task 1: None of my ponies fared well. 

Task 2: Recent favorite is Queen Elizabeth II's "EU" hat she wore to the state opening of Parliament in June 2017. When you are the monarch but want to throw some shade, wear a hat LOL.
