Release Day Review: My Fair Captain by J.L. Langley (Giveaway)

Title: My Fair Captain

Series: The Sci-Regency Series
Author: J.L. Langley
Release Date: May 29, 2018
Category: Science Fiction
Pages: 237

When Intergalactic Navy Captain Nathaniel Hawkins goes undercover to investigate the theft of an IN weapons stash, the mission raises painful memories from his past. Using a title he fled nearly two decades earlier, Nate once again becomes the Earl of Deverell, heir to the Duke of Hawthorne, in order to navigate the ins and outs of a Regency world. But planet Regelence—where young lords are supposed to remain pure until marriage—has a few surprises for Nate, not least of which is his attraction to Prince Aiden.

A talented artist, Prince Aiden Townsend isn’t interested in politics and the machinations of society gentlemen, and he adamantly rejects the idea of marriage and a consort. Aiden wants the freedom to pursue his art and determine his own future. But the arrival of the dashing and mysterious Deverell awakens feelings of passion and longing the young prince can’t deny.

As Nate uncovers a conspiracy reaching far beyond the stolen weapons, his future is irrevocably altered by the temptations of a life he never thought he could have. Drawn into the web of intrigue, Aiden is in danger of losing his life… and his heart.

First Edition published by Samhain Publishing Ltd., June 2007.

3.5 Stars!

This was a fun and adventure filled book containing a sexy dominant Alpha male and his sweet and beautiful younger Prince. Together, they steamed up the pages on my Kindle and left me wanting to dive right into book two. It didn’t matter that I’m not traditionally a fan of Sci-Fi or that I found the beginning a bit tough to completely get lost in. I still enjoyed the story of Nate and Aiden quite a bit.

If I had to say what I didn’t enjoy about the story, it would be the numerous characters we are introduced to. I am not a fan of having to keep track of so many different people and how they connect to the MC’s. It draws me out of the story too much.

Overall, however, I’d recommend My Fair Captain to fans of Sci-Fi and those who don’t mind a bit of Insta love.
