    Vicktor Alexander has created a fictional Regency set in Angland where sexuality is fluid and gender is defined not by external appearance but by whether or not one can sire or carry a child Anyone born with a uterus is a girlwoman and anyone born with seed but not necessarily a penis and a sire mark on the forehead is a boyman There are thus male women and female men Males can be ladies and duchesses and females can be lords A male woman is still referred to with masculine pronouns and a female man is referred to with feminine pronouns Confused yet? I was throughout most of the book even though Alexander explains this in an author's note at the beginning While I command Alexander for flipping our understanding of sexuality and gender there were so many secondary characters in this book dozens upon dozens I couldn't keep track of them all much less their genderanatomyPlus this world is not as euitable as it seems Two people who have a uterus can't get married and neither can two sires Males who are women can get pregnant so there is m preg galore The writing was stellar and the first part of the book was fun Lady Lucien a male woman meaning he has male anatomy and a uterus capable of bearing children is so upset about being betrothed to the older Lord Heathcliff he finds himself in a bar looking to lose his virginity Lucien using his childhood nickname Timmy finds a willing partner in Robert who's trying to escape a betrothal of his ownOf course as fate would have it Robert is Heathcliff so Lucien loses his virginity to his future husband this is obvious to the reader even though it's not to the MCs The two males exchange a few love letters and when their true identities are soon revealed they are relieved except Lucien might be pregnant with Heath's childAll this happens in the first uarter of the book which was disappointing as the secret identity twist was engaging and then the plot comes to a standstill There is the usual hysteria over Lucien losing his virginity out of wedlock as well as meddling families nasty relatives good and not so good friends loyal servants and orphaned children At one point Lucien finds out that a man he had a crush on when he was younger isn't nearly as nice as Lucien believed him to beHeath is possessive and a secret romantic we are told he's a cad and a player but there is no evidence of this since he becomes a lovestruck fool immediately upon meeting Lady Lucien Lucien is giggly naive and understanding Each wonders if the other loves him and there's a LOT of talk about what men do and what women do While I have enjoyed m preg stories in the past Lucien's pregnancy is a main source of tension and the talk of pregnancy symptoms and babies gets old very uickly Lucien is constantly sick nauseous and uncomfortable This is all very real but not in the least bit romantic I was also never clear on the idea of how a male woman would miss that time of the monthThe book is fairly lengthy and the plot revolves around the various lords and ladies and servants and their doings with endless talk of who is related to whom and long descriptions of people's personalities At one point Lucien and Heath have a dinner party and the parade of guests goes on for pages My eyes glazed over and my brain shut downThere is a murder of a character we don't know mentioned once and never explained or related to the story I can only assume it's a setup for the next book in the series The few steamy scenes were lovely but I wanted of them and less of the constant talk of manners and customsIf you adore Regency give this one a try It's not a fast paced book but it is original and well written

    I loved this book and look forward to the entire series Yes it is an mpeg but I like these types of books so if you don’t then this book is not for you This is a book I had been eagerly awaiting for months since Vicktor gave little snippets over time that only wet my appetite for its release I will say that I was very satisfied once I finished it in one setting for I could not put it down now I am looking forward to dessert the next bookYes there are a lot of Lord’s and Lady’s in this book but as you follow the story of Lady Lucien Timothy Hawthorne and Lord Heathcliff Eddington III the Duke of Pompinshire I did not feel overwhelmed Instead it made me antsy for I could tell all these Lord's and Lady's were going to be players in future books Which if you go to Vicktor’s blog you get a snippet for book two now I have to wait patiently NOT for its releaseSomeone commented that it was an insta love situation between Lady Lucien and Duke Heathcliff I didn’t feel that way There was an instant attraction while seeking out someone after finding out about their arranged marriage They had a connection as they talked on their way to the Duke’s home and yes the sex was hot But importantly it was after they had been together that they kept thinking of the other and how the other made them feel They spent time over the story learning each other and did not confess their love for each other in the story until toward the end I have read plenty of insta love books and they are professing from the beginning they did not do this What happens is something would happen or one of them would do something and they would make the internal comment to themselves that was making them fall in love them or the beginnings of loveWhile I was satisfied and extremely enjoyed this book I must make one slight comment Vicktor posted on his blog a deleted scene and I thought it would have added to the book and wished it would not have been deleted It showed how Lady Lucien was able to enlighten his self and an important fact of how he learned Tswahili view spoilerThis is the language of a slave girl they will end up adopting and how he communicate with her as she learns Tenglish hide spoiler

    A friend of mine reviewed this book and I've been looking for a reason to start it for a while now I uite like the idea of this Victorian world where men were able to give birth and where men were free to marry And for the most part I really liked this story There is very little angst though if you get triggered by view spoilerrape scenes you should know that Lucien was attacked and was almost raped in this book I do like how it wasn't just shrugged off here though hide spoiler

    Historical novels and Regency romances in particular are not my usual kind of literature Yet I have read enough of them to know what a Regency romance feels like and this novel is in many respects a perfect example of that genre And yet it is also very different For one thing it is set in an alternate reality where most of the historical facts of 1814 are the same as in our reality but while the role of women is exactly as limited and oppressed as it used to be in “our” 1814 the rest of society and most interpersonal conditions are somewhat different As concepts for alternate realities go this one is pretty uniue and I enjoyed the book immensely for precisely that reasonPlease find my full review of the second edition on Rainbow Book Reviews

    This was such a remarkable read with such imagination and innovation in its presentation of gender Yes it can get confusing but I think that is the point In trying to decipher and keep track of the genders and roles here we see how foolish and short sighted a binary system really is Compared to a contemporary romance the plot is a bit slow but it actually fits the Regency style and I enjoyed the leisurely pace I loved the twist on the m preg kink and thought it really brought the characters together and as uncomfortable as it made me I understood why the rape scene was there

    I loved this book and I want I loved the world and the people I know I'm loving a book when I'm not reading the book and I'm thinking about the it Also this book has mpreg which I love I really enjoy Vicktor Alexander's writing I'm also waiting for another book in this world It can't come soon enough


  10. says:

    DifferentWhile I do love a good mpreg this one was a little harder to follow with the confusing flipping gender pronouns I tried to just roll with it but I didn't love it I did appreciate the recency aspect I have liked other vicktor Alexander books and would probably read the next one in this series I commend the effort for something different
