Nice, but rather flat and sometimes stereotypical romance, that doesn't take the historical bit all that serious.

Inhaltsangabe zu "His Second Chance (Second Chances Book 1)"

The Seventh Viscount of Torring, Randall Blair is more than disgusted with unfaithful lovers. When his last lover announces his engagement to the current reigning belle, Randall decides to suppress his true nature and follow suit. He is determined, once and for all, to forget the dark sailor who slipped in and out of his life five years before.

Lady Prudence Wedgewood has, for a member of the fair sex, unquestioned beauty, and shows a surprising wit, which will entertain Randall, even if her well-proportioned body does not arouse his desires. The marriage should at least be bearable.

The Blair and Wedgewood wedding plans unfold flawlessly...until Lady Prudence’s brother returns.

Lieutenant David Wedgewood has always been beyond discreet with his unnatural attraction to men. An attraction, which years ago, nearly set Randall’s bed aflame for a blissful, torrid week. David returned for only one reason: to save his beloved sister from a marriage destined to bring nothing but pain. Marriage to a sod!

He will kill Randall if that’s what it takes to stop the wedding. And he is willing to seduce Randall, to prove that this marriage can only end in disaster and heartbreak.

    Kurzmeinung: Nice, but rather flat and sometimes stereotypical romance, that doesn't take the historical bit all that serious.
    Pleasant, but rather stereotypical and not historical accurate.

    Viscount Randall has enough. After his latest lover up and left him to marry, without even bothering to inform him, he decides he can't deal with unfaithful men anymore and wants to try his hand at marriage himself.
    He finds a good match with Prudence, who seems witty, practical and beautiful. He doesn't desire her, but feels they can make a decent life together, until her brother arrives back home from the navy.
    David is furious that a sodomite whats to marry his sister. He himself spent a week in Randall's bed, after all, just a few years ago. But as he comes back to confront the man he notices that old feelings might not be quite dead yet.

    It's a decent romance, but nothing outstanding.
    I thought the romance aspect fell a bit flat and was rather stereotypical. Pretty much an insta-love scenario (old affair, never forgotten, been in love all that time, yadida...), objections that where mentioned and then conveniently forgotten...

    The book is quite short and the plot also often felt rushed and cut short. The characters could have been fleshed out more, especially Randall seemed a bit shallow and not terribly original. David has at least some fears and some background that help make him a bit more unique. The story probably would have been better, if all the feelings could have had some more time to develop properly.

    I also felt the historical setting was taken quite lax. I stumbled over quite a few words or phrases that just where too modern, even for me as a layman, and the actions didn't always fit in either (A Woman making a public scene, being bodily dragged off by her brother? Pretty unlikely.)

    The ending was very much not expected and a bit different, though, so that's something. The sex scenes where pretty hot and all in all it was a pleasant read.
