Less Than a Gentleman (Mass Market)
Less Than a Gentleman (Mass Market) - Kerrelyn Sparks I enjoyed this historical romance set during the Revolutionary War with its fast paced exciting action. Both alpha hero and heroine struggle to survive during hard times in addition to helping those dependent on them. Rebel leader Matthais escapes from prison while Caroline takes her pregnant sister with children to safety.

Less Than a Gentleman (Mass Market) - Kerrelyn Sparks

Cover looks like it should be a HP spoof; not a Revolutionary war era historical.

 

Not quite the same charm as the first book, largely because of…the Numbskull. Ok, you're wanted, your dad is imprisoned, and you're surprised that the British/Loyalists decide to use your mother as bait? Em… right. Further, you agree to sneak around the hidden passageways in the family home to spy on said Brits and it never occurs to you that *maybe* you should have a plan for getting your family out? Really?

 

And the funny thing - genius boy there is worrying about the h taking risks that'll get her killed - spying herself - but it never once occurs to him that his actions might be traced back there without her involvement at all.

 

Truly, the book would have rated lower if it weren't for the rather hilarious pokes at the H's manhood - he was kissing her, her dress had a pin in it that poked her. She told him she was poked by something, then added it was only a little prick (that was just one)

Less Than a Gentleman - Kerrelyn Sparks I don't know about you but when I think of romantic time periods I don't usually think about the Revolutionary War; but maybe that's just me... After reading Less than a Gentleman that opinion has been changed because the Revolutionary War can be romantic and action packed.Caroline is not to be trifled with. She is a strong-willed and courageous woman who does what she has to do keep her family safe. Even lying about being someone else to get shelter. I mean a girl has gotta do what a girl has gotta do. Granted she does feel terrible about it.Speaking of lying there is quite a bit of lying in Less Than a Gentleman. Most of it is well founded and understandable. But at one point I was yelling at a character to just tell the truth already. Of course they didn't listen to me, not that I honestly thought they would.The romantic scenes were HOT, obviously because this is a romance novel. But they were not too over the top so if you are not into the explicit this book is for you.One thing that I was really surprised about was how much action there was in Less Than a Gentleman. This is not a romance that takes place in drawing rooms and stately mansions. Though there are drawing rooms and a plantation this book mostly takes place in mills, secret passageways, swamps, and docks. And don't you think for a moment that Caroline is going to let the boys have all the fun. She can hold her own against the British.Even though I enjoyed the whole book my favorite part was the secondary characters. From Dottie and Becky to Charlotte and Jacob all the characters added so much to this story and really fleshed it out. There are no characters that are gratuitous, and they will make you fall in love with them.Basically if you are a fan of historical romance or romance in general you should read Less Than a Gentleman.

Less Than a Gentleman
Less Than a Gentleman - Kerrelyn Sparks Sometimes we need to leave our comfort zone, that little niche where we settle into so happily. I’m a picky reader you see; I want my men either in kilts waving claymores about or I want them to have some sort of fangs or horns with a supernatural power or a preternatural ability. Easy, right? Then, one of my favorite authors decided to write a book in a time and place that I just normally don’t enjoy! But I felt compelled beyond all reason to read it and was rewarded for taking a chance.

Less Than A Gentleman takes place in the Carolina colonies during the Revolutionary War. It begins as Matthias Murray Thomas and his men break free from the prison they were in, having to kill some of the guards and making a mortal enemy of one left alive. The Major who assisted in the rescue operation had two daughters that were left alone and he wanted Matthias to check in on them. One daughter had two young children and a third on the way, while the other, according to her father, could take care of herself! As Matthias set out on his mission, he kept looking for the women but found their home had been burned out and he feared them dead. Returning to his own home, Matthias discovered that the women were both safe and staying with his mother at his plantation. Caroline was there under the fake name Miss Agatha Ludlow pretending to be a woman there to marry Matthias.
