I have a sort of old fashioned passion for historical novels and romances you know me and these old Jane Austen s books This story suited me perfectly If it were not for some yummy sex scenes, could it perhaps have been written long ago It felt like a novel with grand sweet romance in it London, England 1813This is a tender story about a sad and depressed baronet Sir Alan Watleigh and the rent boy Jem Brown who this gentleman picks up the planned very last night of his life But that meeting with the rogue and that first steamy night change a lot A charmer seducing a sob stick yep, it ll be fun.Sir Alan can t understand it but he just doesn t want this cheerful young guy to leave It was such a nice feeling to feel a warm hard body next to him in his big bed He actually smile for a short moment again.Already the next day is this cheeky, but so gorgeous, Jem guy Sir Alan s new very chatty sevant valet The journey towards a grand final or begin I said I do not wish to speak about the matter Yah, you did But I wasn t sure if you meant it Christ, man, he snapped I speak plain English What you speak of and what you long for are a fair distance apart, pardon my saying soThis 9 hours audio version is IMO nicely and well narrated by Jasper de Montfort A new voice for me A voice and narration which was well suited to this stories time period, charachters etc view spoiler You can get this audiobook for a bargain Just 6 for the audio and the kindle ebook hide spoilerSomething that always requires a little thought is the different lives of the wealthy nobility clique and the many poor people in the working class and in the poor slums which lived in London then two hundred years ago Was really love between the classes possible In addition, a forbidden relationship between two men Alan had never spared much thought for the lower classes With Jem, for the first time, Alan considered that perhaps all men were the same, and only the hand life dealt then created differences it says a lot about the time my noteThis is of course a romantic fictional story, but I still think it is alright thought out and believable Jem doesn t change that much He is the cheeky raw in the mouth , the guy who is familiar with the poor prostitutes and thieves harsh reality then 1813 something He know hunger for food, but he is never the less horny and he likes to be with men It isn t just a hard horrible job for a young beautiful guy So the rent boy thing isn t that big and nasty here Jem is talking a lot He is happy and nice He is joking, and oddly enough, he takes quite easy on all of life s hardships Jem enjoys his new warm soft bed, all good food in Alan s big house and the stylish welldone new valet clothes he gets there I liked him so very much Jem is a amazing dear character to remember Alan is from the begginning, still and constantly Sir Alan, even though these two men eventually becomethan master and servant or secret nighttime lovers But the world doesn t change in a flash Not even in romances There will be no gay wedding, partnership, or joint bedroom It s still 1813, and the social structures remain But these great genuine feelings, the attraction and the true love is there So was what is about in the end The Gentleman and the Rouge is a romantic sexy romance about in that time forbidden love and lust There are gigantic social differences, memories of a horrible war, a rouge s always positive outlook on life, a missing young orphan girl, honor and justice, and of course new fantastic life opportunities Everything described in a good entertaining tone in the text, good bantering dialogues, believable characters, some suspense and a bit action All of it with much merriment, a developed plot and well thought out story, and hot hot secret moments to cut a long story and review short Do you want an easygoing and sweet romantic historical fairy tale But with just enough glittering sparkle Try this one I LIKE a chatty charmer seduces even me

    I love rent boy stories But you know what I enjoy evenGreat rent boy stories Paired with my fave historical time period Regency , let s just say I was a happy lady.Sir Alan is injured physically and mentally from war He wanted to have onenight s pleasure before meeting his maker and decided to pay for a male prostitute Who he picked up that night changed his life for the good He and Jem have their night but there was something about him that kept pulling him towards the young I love rent boy stories But you know what I enjoy evenGreat rent boy stories Paired with my fave historical time period Regency , let s just say I was a happy lady.Sir Alan is injured physically and mentally from war He wanted to have onenight s pleasure before meeting his maker and decided to pay for a male prostitute Who he picked up that night changed his life for the good He and Jem have their night but there was something about him that kept pulling him towards the younger man And their story is not a case of insta love even though they had sex the first night Alan had difficulties accepting his true nature and admitting that yes he has feelings for a man it was an inner grapple that touched melancholy but was not overcome in a high tide of grief and angst.You know why Jem.Jem He s truly a gem His name is just perfect for him.He has got a mouth on him And the best part he knew how to use it His outlook on life and he had a sucky one pun intended was surprisingly light He was the light to Alan s dark and gloomy I was afraid his feelings for Sir Alan were bred out of gratitude for not being on the streets any I mean, I d be singing the man s praises myself if it meant I didn t have to whore myself any But as the story progressed, you get a sense of the deep affection he had for his Lord Bumbuggerer I was happy for his happy ending The dark turn the story takes into the gruesome and macabre view spoiler There s a carve happy doctor who is a fan of abuse, messing with the minds of others, vivisection and just being fucking creepy.This is how I kept imagining the bastard Just put some limp white blond hair on that dude and a scalpel in his hand I loved what happened to him He so deserved it Asshat hide spoiler Though the angle was unexpectedI really liked it It brought the story to a different level than expected There s a satisfying HEA, well for what can be expected based on that time period The dialogue read authentic to me The characters were enjoyable The story dragged a little in the middle but not so much that I wanted to give up So if you read and feel it drags, try to push through but it gets better towards the second half.BTW The original cover is exactly how I imagine the MC especially Jem.Great story

    Audio for this is really good, would recommend it Loved this, and historical is never my first choice Picked it up as a freebie and now wondering why it s taken me so long to read it.Farstory here than I expected The characters are instantly likeable, haunted gentleman Alan only why does he have to be named Alan, that s my dad s name and irrepressible rogue Jem At first I wondered at Jem being so up beat but that s clearly his defence mechanism This being a historical the dynam Audio for this is really good, would recommend it Loved this, and historical is never my first choice Picked it up as a freebie and now wondering why it s taken me so long to read it.Farstory here than I expected The characters are instantly likeable, haunted gentleman Alan only why does he have to be named Alan, that s my dad s name and irrepressible rogue Jem At first I wondered at Jem being so up beat but that s clearly his defence mechanism This being a historical the dynamic would seem set but I was pleased to find that assumption wrong, Sir Watleigh I can t call him Alan indeed has the money and position but Jem has attitude and brings life The relationship balances out, they each bring something, and need the other I enjoyed seeing them work things out.There s big class differences, the damage of war, forbidden desires.And then there was drama A sociopath and a vulnerable child I was gripped wanting to know how it would resolve, where they d go from there Intrigue Danger It was unexpected and thrilling.Found this an engaging read with characters I instantly fell for Immediately on the hunt forby these authors

    3.5 StarsI admit, I don t typically read a lot of historicals, specifically of the M M variety because the intolerance and the need for secrecy wrecks havoc on my poor nerves I m not saying I didn t fret while reading this because this story did have the above, but at the same time, I liked the setup and the characters.Poor Alan Devastated, numb, and depressed after coming home from the war, he can t seem to forget the atrocities and losses so much so, he s about to end it all for peaceful o 3.5 StarsI admit, I don t typically read a lot of historicals, specifically of the M M variety because the intolerance and the need for secrecy wrecks havoc on my poor nerves I m not saying I didn t fret while reading this because this story did have the above, but at the same time, I liked the setup and the characters.Poor Alan Devastated, numb, and depressed after coming home from the war, he can t seem to forget the atrocities and losses so much so, he s about to end it all for peaceful oblivion However, before he does so, he indulges one last time in companionship and brings home Jem, a street urchin who survives on his smarts and willingness to do savory and not so savory things What results is something Alan would ve never predicted he actually starts to feel, as Jem incites within him longing, anger, passion feelings he thought were forever lost to him.So of course, Alan hires Jem to be his valet, as it s the perfect ruse for them to be together Jem is cocky and cheeky, and though lust and safety play a role in him staying with Alan, he also simply wants to make him laugh, wants him to engage in life again Slowly, despite Alan s personal guilt surrounding his proclivities, his resistance to Jem s charm weakens, and he can t help but come to care for Jem, as he becomes a vital part of Alan s wellbeing.The plot veers into an odd development as Alan tries to rescue an orphan from an evil person from his past, but it serves its purpose in making these two realize just how important they are to each other No doubt, Jem made this story Though he didn t always think things through, his quick wit and sense of honor show his true character, making him the perfect foil to Alan Overall, very well written for what I assume is accurate for the time and setting, this was also quite smexy Add in some good dashes of action interspersed with some great feels and I wouldn t be remiss to revisit this writing duo again

    This story has great characters, believable period detail, and an interesting plot, resulting in a very readable and engaging historical romance Jem is a 19 year old male prostitute, picked up off the streets by Sir Alan for one night of indulging Alan s long denied need for a man s touch, before Alan plans to commit suicide But Jem is no down trodden silent body to be used His spirit, his humor and his zest for life have survived all that he has gone through on the streets By the end of the This story has great characters, believable period detail, and an interesting plot, resulting in a very readable and engaging historical romance Jem is a 19 year old male prostitute, picked up off the streets by Sir Alan for one night of indulging Alan s long denied need for a man s touch, before Alan plans to commit suicide But Jem is no down trodden silent body to be used His spirit, his humor and his zest for life have survived all that he has gone through on the streets By the end of their first night together, Alan can no longer feel completely hopeless in a world that has moments like the ones Jem has given him, moments not just of sex but of humor and connection and caring touch The question is, how can Alan keep that hope alive when the person who gave it to him is a prostitute and a thiefand a man Jem is a wonderful character, not unreasonably Polyannaish, but one of those rare souls who can find the positive in any situation and make the best of it, not with resignation but with zest and enthusiasm Alan is great as the man pulled back into life in Jem s wake, willy nilly, becoming persuaded against his own conviction of depravity, that what he and Jem give each other is a good thing.Add a child in need of rescue, a silent but protective ex batman servant and some action, and you have an engrossing and entertaining story The historical detail was unobtrusive but smoothly done And I was very glad that the story didn t stop too soon after the action climax, instead giving us the HEA in enough detail to picture it continuing for all the years to come
