Hamilton's Battalion: A Trio of Romances - Alyssa Cole,Rose Lerner,Courtney Milan

'It's your turn, ' the man said with an unholy degree of cheer. "I remarked on the weather. Etiquette demands that you same something in return."

For a moment, John stared at the fellow in utter confusion. "I'm bloody trying to kill you. This is a battle, not a ball."

He pivoted on one foot, putting his entire back in whirling his weapon. This time he managed to whack the other man's stomach. A blow-not a hard one, he hadn't the space to gather momentum-but enough that the fellow grunted and staggered back a pace.

"Yes," the man said, recovering his balance all too quickly, "true, completely true, we are trying to commit murder upon each other. That doesn't mean that we need to be impolite about it."

Fucking British. Would he call a halt to take tea, too?

 

 

Courtney Milan is back everyone! Meet cute on the battlefield as only she can do.

Friday Reads - January 12, 2018
Triangle: The Fire That Changed America - David von Drehle
Ms. Marvel Volume 1: No Normal - G. Willow Wilson,Adrian Alphona
A Right Honorable Gentleman - Courtney Milan
Love is Love - Phil Jimenez,Various
Hamilton's Battalion: A Trio of Romances - Alyssa Cole,Rose Lerner,Courtney Milan

I have 40% left in Triangle, so that is the first one to read. There may be less left due to the index, sources, etc. taking up a big part of the page count.

 

Starting tomorrow, I will be reading off my COYER Winter Switch reading list, kicking off with volume one of Ms. Marvel and A Right Honorable Gentleman by Courtney Milan (previously published in RWA's anthology Premiere).

 

I will also begin reading Love is Love edited by Phil Jimenez, a graphic novel anthology that was created to raise money for Pulse Nightclub victims and survivors.

 

To round out the end of BoB cycle 21, I might get to Hamilton's Battalion anthology.

 

Happy first 3 day weekend of 2018!

I picked up the book for Milan, but also, Hamilton! Three charming stories that explore three different couples with different connections to the the war. All three of these do what I love most in an historic setting: create a realistic scenario, but focus on characters who are traditionally overlooked: Jews in the Revolutionary war, slaves and freedmen of color, and the ways in which women serve both in uniform and not during wartime. And also, three different but concordant pictures of Eliza Hamilton and her great work.

It's Here!!!!
Hamilton's Battalion: A Trio of Romances - Alyssa Cole,Rose Lerner,Courtney Milan

I don't pre-order books normally and especially don't pre-order ebooks (they tend to go on sale pretty quickly after release date). I made a big exception for this gem. Came home yesterday after another long day to find it sitting on my Kindle. I may end up reading it during Dewey because I can't hold out until after Halloween bingo.
