Lord Perry Cavendish knows that he’s seen as a not-too-bright, amiable, sporting sort of chap. The type who can hold his own in the boxing ring, drink most men under the table, and offer a useful opinion on a piece of horseflesh—but not much else.

When Perry visits his friend, Lysander Winterbourne, he is introduced to the Honourable Jonny Mainwaring, a free-thinking artist who is everything Perry is not: unconventional, emotional… and very talkative.

At first, Perry is overwhelmed by the vibrant, witty Jonny Mainwairing, but when he agrees to sit for him, he discovers the real man beneath the dramatic flourishes, and the undeniable physical attraction he feels for Jonny begins to develop into something more.

But Jonny is not to be easily won over. While he has a longstanding weakness for brawny men like Perry, he’s still smarting from his latest heartbreak and determined to change his habit of throwing himself into each new affair without pausing to recover from the last.

Can Perry convince Jonny that he is more than just an empty-headed young buck, and that they could have a real future together?

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Joanna has crafted the most beautifully caring and elegant romance between two men who are so different, and yet each complements the other perfectly.

It’s a historical romance, but not overtly so, but when it does flex itself in that direction it’s done with the usual impeccable quality of all Joanna’s work.

Lord Peregrine aka Perry Cavendish (which had me chuckling as that’s the name of the current Duke of Devonshire, who I interviewed on inheriting the title) is feeling a bit aimless when he turns up to visit Lysander and Adam (the first two books in this series).

He’s been there a few days when his world is blown apart by the arrival of the Honourable Jonathan Mainwaring aka Jonny.

He’s an artist running wounded from life, his father’s disapproval, his ex-lover’s criticism, his own anxieties and fears of abandonment.

But, to Perry, he’s perfection. And, as Perry is the sweetest Chelsea Bun to ever exist (it’s the post Regency version of a cinnamon bun), it’s not long before they’re exploring the mutual attraction.

What follows is a narrative I won’t spoil, but it takes the reader on a journey which will have them gnashing teeth, shaking heads, wringing hands and, ultimately sighing the most happiest of sighs.

There’s not much smexy, but what is there scorches the sheets and was enough to satisfy my needs, although I wouldn’t have said no to more.

Let’s just say, when Jonny takes charge, he directs Perry in more than just the art of how to pose for a portrait sitting.

I honestly could talk about this book for way longer, but I think you all will benefit from me shutting up now and letting you fall in love with the sharp tongued Hylas and his Herakles 😁
