    4 StarsI’m totally digging this sci fi setup with Regency undertones as it appealed to the hidden geek in me all the while being nicely nostalgic for those MF historicals I used to read way back when What is it about the stuffiness and propriety that's just begging to be ripped away in a storm of lust and hormones this time though with heaving dicks instead of bosoms Oh yeah you know what I mean This pretty much starts a few weeks after My Fair Captain continuing with the mystery of missing stolen weapons and whether or not all this is originating on fellow Regency planet Englor I won’t bore you with the details as this is NOT a standalone Just know that this is about two princes trying to be proper and then not succeeding as desire gets the best of both Payton and SimonAgain for those who need to know the main mystery isn’t completely solved at the end of the story but uestions are answered Also know that this still contained some really really good UST ripening for delicious picking leading to some impressively hot smexy This also had some fun and funny just like its predecessor all tied up in some military espionage and twisty political conspiracies while maintaining Regency culture but in space That entire concept just puts a smile on my mug high five

    2018 UPDATE Dreamspinner now publishes this series This book is hereThis is a sci Regency That means a Regency romance set in outer space don't bother asking how it works or this whole review will be wasted on you It's also a smutty gay sex romp written by a very nice straight ladyIf you're still here we'll get to the plot The ueen of Englor an Earth colony that's chosen Regency England as its societal model is a nasty homophobic gambling addict whose son and heir happens to be a big ol' 'mo with a taste for chicken men younger than the subject He's also a Marine Colonel a gym rat and as heir to the throne PRIME marriage material He's been dodging scheming mamas and aunties at the Englorian revival of Almack's for most of his life Colonel Hollister Our Lantern Jawed and big eared Hero discovers that his revolting Mama is up to her hiney in badnessshe's being blackmailed to deliver to Persons Unknown some schematics for something the Englor Marines have designed that's so secret that even the heir to the throneColonel Hollister doesn't even know what it isSo it's a romance and that means a counterparty Prince Payton Townsend of Regelence another Regency based society is a nineteen year old computer genius and son of the King of Regelence and his Consort No not ueen Consort A Manand a very studly one Payton's younger brother has just married a Captain in the Interplanetary Navy subject of a previous book My Fair Captain who also happens to be the heir to an Englorian Dukedom Englorian spying on Regelence has been discovered an investigation takes place Payton meets Colonel Hollister the heir to the homophobic ueen sparks fly virginities are lost tops bottom and all sorts of runnin' from pillar to post takes place There is an agreeable amount of very very dirty sex The expected miscommunications and misunderstandings and emotional angst takes place and in the end pun optional Our Hero and his little bit of stuff are married and parents and just gooily happyWell it ain't for everybody but I really really really liked it Is it a perfect novel? Oh heavens no Someone needed to guide Ms Langley to a few of the obvious embellishments that a spy thriller really needs and the world building that a sci fi novel needs is woefully absentBut the love story is charming The sex is waaay smutty exactly as sex should be My father said it best during his first teenaged indiscretion talk with me If you can do it in front of me you're doing it wrong So don't do it until you need to close the door If you need to lock the door you're doing good So why do I like the book so much given its flaws? Because these characters are not in any way conflicted about themselves True the Englorian heir is closeted but he never feels he's bad or wrong he feels he's put upon and wastes little time in angsting over what he wants just over not being able to see how he can have it That's an adult dilemma not a boring coming out story suitable for kids I am so weary of coming out stories I could urp I was never in really so coming out didn't make a big impression on me Yes yes married two women had two children but never ever hid my true nature from anyone Chacun a son gout of course but I for one am not buyin' any gay fiction with the words teen or awaken or life changing decision in the sales copySo should y'all read it? Maybe Sex is rampant in these pages Don't pick it upheck don't even look at the cover if you're not into big hairy chested semi nude studmuffins drifts off to Bermuda for a moment sorry where was I oh yeah so if anything here makes you gag leave it If you're suirming a little try it The rest of us are waaay ahead of you

    The second in this space opera series was just as fluffy and feel good as the first only this time it's set on the Regency companion planet Englor and involves Lord Plague aka Payton and the future king of Englor Simon Payton accompanies Nate to his home planet posing as his aide due to his computer prowess However he finds himself drawn to the military life and enjoys assists in the investigation into the shenanigans that occurred on Regelence in book oneOne rather problematic fly in the ointment is he soon finds himself enthralled with the giant ginger at the gym pause for applause on the alliteration The tension between Simon and Payton builds much the same as it did with Aiden and Nate with the addition of Payton essentially investigating Simon as a possible suspect in the spy game The tension and heat builds nicely between them I am a fan of public and or semi public shenanigans and these two are a fan of the each other At the gym Though there was enough actual relationship development to satisfy me as wellAs backwards as it sounds I'm almost invested in the investigation than these romances which may entice me to carry on with the series I need to know who this villainous villain is Plus my curiosity was piued by the Colton pining over Sebastian that was hinted at than once in My Fair Captain soAside from the subplot I share a fondness for a size difference that Langley seems to favor and who doesn't like a bit of feel good fluff set in space in a Regency time period from time to time?Say that four times really fastIf any of the above appeals give The Englor Affair a try though you will likely need to read My Fair Captain first A copy was provided in exchange for an honest review

    Some of my fave books are being ruined by subpar narration 😫Choose wisely

    This book was amazing I won't even attempt to blurb the plot I loved My Fair Captain and was so looking forward to today when this book came out Needless to say the book totally delivered The sparks just flew off Simon and Payton from the moment they laid eyes on each other Great characters great sex great emotion and a great plot This book is an absolute must read for anyone who likes a mm romance

    I was anexious to grasp and read this book after I finished My Fair Captain from the same author Admiral Nathaniel Hawkins was in this book just supporting character and his role was from almost paternal supervision to scarring king of Englor to the core Hawkins went back to Englor to investigate the espionage affair and took with him prince Payton Townsend who was the second oldest son of royal pair and skilled hacker Regelen with preference in males had obviously some gaydar and found the nearest gay man and promptly loosened his virginity with him Prince Payton was hardworking undercover lad as you see His partner turned to be prince Simon Hollister who was by chance the main subject of investigation Payton and Simon went trough oh nice fuck in shower to hey you are prince to oh my you compromised me and my brother in law bumped on us so you will marry me at one phases Too much marriages too much gay way is the best way and who is hetero is cause of all evil things in our planet However this book was pleasant to read and still it stays above average gay romance

    I really like Langley's style of writing It is so easy to picture the story in my mind as she is telling it I truly enjoyed every minute of this novel It had it all humor suspenseand some very heated moments between the sheets I loved this book and I am planning on reading books by this author ASAP Thanks for the recommendation ladies

    Audio Review 17Mar2019 No ChangeI was absolutely dying to listen to this series somehow I forgot to listen to the first one firstand now I'm not so sure Joseph Morton just kindareads the story Which I guess is a type of narration But I have been ridiculously spoiled with fabulous performances by other voice actors and expected No character differentiation no vocal inflection Dramatic scenes were as rote as filler and the sex was so MEH I almost fast forwarded Good thing I got this one from the library rather than Audible Not so happy that I wasted my weekly reuestrecommendation limit asking for this and book 1 though Honestly can't say I'm going to listen to the first installment now Maybe for a challenge?But again I don't dock for re reads via audio so the rating stands If you're interested in listening to this series I SERIOUSLY recommend that you check out the sample before buyingColor me hella disappointedOriginal Review 03Feb2017 4 StarsYep like I said in the update I need to re read the first to figure out why I rated it so low I know I read it a long time ago despite the review date here and for the life of me I just can't remember what I didn't likeWell unless it was because I wasn't partial to historicals at all until relatively recently and the Regency esue aspects all up in my SciFi wouldn't have endeared it to me back thenBut I really did like this one a lot and the whole melding of the two seemingly opposite genres is fascinating So definitely going to re read #1 and putting #3 on the TBR now
