I enjoyed reading this book. I read it for pure enjoyment, with engageing characters that drew me in instantly. Then we had the historical facts and the son's of liberty to give the story added interest. I would have liked more of the battle scene. However, it didn't spoil my enjoyment of the story. I loved the slow burning passion of Cassy and Colt, their clashes of personality gave the plot the tension it needed and worked well . . .
I liked the spirited heroine and the broody hero and thought that the love scene when they finally got together was well written . . .
Finally, I found it extraordinary that, No Gentleman is He, was written by two authors, one living in Canada and the other living in New York. And that they managed to make the book seamless . . .
Congratulation to you both for producing a wonderful book that I would certainly have no hesitation in recommending. ~ Cathy, Amazon UK
and Amazon US
Great book. Amazing collaboration.
No Gentleman Is He is a thoroughly enjoyable book. Not only is it true to its historical period, the characters are so real you feel you could talk to them and expect them to reply. I loved this story. What amazed me most was how well these two authors worked together to produce such a smooth flowing book. I'd love to know how they did it. If you didn't know, you would never guess there were two authors instead of just one. Excellent job. Excellent book. ~ Petticoat Grandma, Amazon
I really enjoy the Revolutionary time period in US history, and this gave enough detail and enough background to make me enjoy the time period and be interested in the details of events leading up to the revolution that is well known. I liked the premise, and the horses. While there were a few scenes that didn't quite gel together, most were well done and gave a glimpse into the lives of a much harder time period than now. The romance was well done, and built up throughout the story. Having a powerful heroine that does more than just survive but holds her own and is expert in her field is refreshing in the genre. ~ Marie Davis, Amazon and Goodreads
Romance with Character
I must say this was reminiscent of the early days of fine, historical romance stories. I found myself immediately captured by Casey and Colton's personalities. Throughout the story there was a bevy of strong characters who entertained and lived in a period of time weaved around historical events of the American Revolution.
From the opening scene of a struggling mare needing help in delivery, to the end scene of kidnapping, I found my interest captured. The only thing that jarred me from an engrossing read were a few transition bumps in scenes.
The time period came alive with great descriptions of life on a working horse farm. Being an avid horseman, I found the descriptions of the day to day operations and animal behavior true to life.
I highly recommend this read to any discerning romance buff. My thanks to the writers who presented an extremely well researched, professional, and edited story. ~ Rgabel, Amazon
I just finished this book and really enjoyed it! I haven't read a historical romance in a very long time but I am so glad that I read this. This book had me hooked from the very beginning. I normally only have time to read at night, but found myself looking for opportunities to squeeze in a few chapters during the day. The story was well written and the attention to history made me feel like I was living in that time period. Cassandra overcame many hardships to live in a new land and succeed in a man's world. She quickly earned the respect of everyone at Varina Farms and proved to be the best thing to ever come into Colton Rolfe's life. I look forward to the next book in the Sons of Liberty series to find out what comes next for these characters and their family and friends. Carley Bauer and Lynette Willows did a fantastic job with this book! I am definitely a fan of historical romance again! ~ Diana, Amazon
I am not a big reader and read very little actually but I decided to read this book and I am so glad I did! I loved everything about it, the year it took place, the way the writers described the scenery and every character, I could picture it clearly ! I especially loved the tension / romance build up between Colton and Cassandra their characters were amazing!, sad to see it end can't wait for the second !!! I'm hooked :) ~ Courtney, Amazon
The best book I have read in a long time.The characters were very strong. Cassandra was spirited and intelligent. Colton was a dark haired man full of passion and strength. They're love story drew me in. I felt as I were living it, though I have to admit some parts made me blush (I felt I was peeking).
It's hard to believe it was written by two people instead of one. I couldn't tell where one ended and the other started. I am curious if one of them grew up on a horse farm, it seemed very spot on. Can't wait till the next one. ~ Roin, Amazon
I just finished reading "No Gentleman Is He", it really is a must read. It has a cast of characters, both main and secondary, who's personalities are so well defined and consistent from beginning to end that I found myself feeling at times, I was eavesdropping on the action from somewhere in the scene. Voyeurism comes to mind as I think of the love scenes. The story takes you on an emotional journey that leaves you wanting and waiting for the next adventure. ~ Cole34, Amazon
Once I started this book, I couldn't put it down. This is a great, historical romance. Colton is a bit of a Rhett Butler, he's dark and misunderstood by society. Cassandra, on the other hand, is no Scarlett and I mean that in a good way. She is a strong, smart, independent woman who is not afraid to take care of herself. I admire the way she refuses to run to a man to save her. Colton's respect and admiration for her strength add depth to his character. I also really enjoyed the interactions between Cassandra's parents at the end of the novel. Perhaps there could be a prequel down the road about their relationship? ~ Barbara, Amazon
I absolutely loved this book. I don't usually read revolutionary era books. But it looked intriguing so I read it. This was such a terrific story with strong characters and an accurate story line. I felt as if I was there living in those exciting, yet hard times, when this country began its journey to independence. It really retells the american history. It had everything you want and more. A beautiful love story and an exciting book, you really feel for these people in those times. I can't wait to read the next one!! ~ Dana, Amazon
Exciting and Entertaining
I really enjoyed this historical fiction and the romance between Colton and Cassandra that's was so heated and erotic. It fairly sizzled . . . the history involved in the book is very accurate and so interesting . . . I highly recommend this wonderful tale and applaud both authors for their hard and ingenious work. I look forward to more in the future. ~ Linda Hays-Gibbs, Amazon
Exciting and Entertaining
It is a love-hate relationship with a fire so intense you can feel the heat of it coming off the page. I was very impressed by the weave of history in this most erotic love story. The first battle with the British was accurate and so interesting you felt the urgency. The characters were well-rounded and four-dimensional. You could feel the pull between the main characters and you feel for them in their problems. Their personalities were firmly set in your mind and you flowed with them through their troubles. ~ Carole, The Romance Reviews, Amazon
This is a wonderful story and well written. There is a logical flow of the plot to the climax, the pace is perfect, and is well edited. Having a romance story with a back drop of the American Revolution made the action light up. It centers on a relationship between a hard driving horse rancher and a young widow he's hired to manage his ranch . . . The passion between the young Cassandra and the rancher, Colton, heated up the pages. I enjoyed the love scenes and the well written dialogue. The frustration and confusion between Colton and Cassandra was obvious and tantilizing . . . I enjoyed the read because of the superb writing style of both authors. There was a sense of their passion for the story as well as their knowledge of the time period. The story was interesting from page one to the end. If you love romance with steamy embraces, mixed in with an interesting setting and time period, you'll enjoy No Gentleman is He. ~ Feather Stone, Amazon
