A Sci-Regency Novel: sequel to The Englor Affair
Sebastian Hastings, Viscount Wentworth, is captain of the Royal Guard by day and scandalous rake by night. To protect the royal family of Regelence from the plots of the Intergalactic Navy, Sebastian makes it his priority to personally oversee their safety.Prince Colton Townsend is done pining after the roguish viscount and focuses his attention on his second love—horses. Following his dream of owning a racehorse breeding farm distracts Colton from his heartache… until Sebastian begins shadowing him.
When a good deed at a horse auction sparks public rumors, Colton just might get the man and the marriage he’s longed for. But Sebastian’s duties and secrets keep him walled off from those who would get close.
To reach Sebastian, Colton takes one last risk that might break his heart….
This was another enjoyable installation to this series. This one focuses on Colton who we haven’t seen a lot of in the previous books. I found that I really liked his character and I found both he and Sebastian to be entertaining.
This book was a bit different than the first two stories.. There was less of the IN plot and more focus on the couple and the romance. We also get to see the previous couples and more of the various side characters. I enjoyed seeing these other glimpses of characters and it seems to be setting up the future books in the series.
I originally read this many years ago so I don’t remember much from my first read. I know things have been edited because I noticed a big difference in the first two books between the original and these new ones. This one though, I just don’t remember enough to be able to compare.
Overall I found this to be a really good read. It could be read as a standalone but you would miss some of the back story and the connections between the characters. I do hope that these new re-releases mean that the author is finally going to release more books in this series.
Cover Artist: Tiferet Design I love these new covers. I think they look great and are very eye catching. They are a big improvement over the previous covers in my opinion.
