More About the Author

I am a writer of gay romances, a lover of dramatic TV and a fan of many things which are bad for me. I don't cook, I do read, I pretend to garden, and I take care of my pets. One of my favorite things is a clean desk; another is a messy desk.

I am SO GLAD I looked past that to read this book!
L. Knight
I'd love to read of the maturation of their relationship and the ways they handle the challenges they face, even more about Lloyd.
Variety IS the Spice of Life
The supporting characters in An Agreement Among Gentleman added a great deal to the story.

As all other reviewers I came to this book after reading the beautiful Bareback by the same author.

There could have been no major change: here we are led into Victorian England, among the gentility and the tone is necessarily completely different.

Edward Munrow comes to wealth in an unexpected way and is not entirely happy about it because his new position forces him to take those responsibilities he has carefully avoided until then.
The fact that ignites the plot feels unlikely enough to make it difficult for the reader to suspend disbelief; once suspension is managed somehow, the reader is thrown into a plot who develops consistently giving enough room for the three main characters to shine.

Mr Owen's writing is good as ever, yet I found the characterization rich but unfulfilling. It seems to me that the novel, rather short in fact, is constantly on the verge between the nicely written but light-hearted erotica and the full fledged gay historical novel: sex scenes are many, graphic, well done and take a large number of pages but there are several hints at deeper issues which are never dealt with, leaving me dissatisfied.
The most thorny issue is perhaps the threesome that develops among the three characters: it is nicely done and sexy but I really could not understand how the three come not only to have sex together but even to love one another so much that the expected exclusion of one of them from the "happily ever after" never takes place.
Among the others undealt with issues one could quote the characters of the duke and of the bride to be, not to mention the rather sexy topic of dominance and sexual play in xix century England.

Format: Paperback
Edward "Ned" Munrow is content with his life of no responsibility and all pleasure until his friend unexpectedly gives him an estate and a great deal of money. He's not particularly pleased with the development, especially when a Duke blackmails him into a marriage he definitely doesn't want. The Duke sends his heir, Henri, Viscount Langton, to spend the summer with Munrow, so they can pretend he's seeing if the young man will make a suitable heir. To his surprise, Munrow discovers that he actually likes Langton. Things get even more confusing (and exciting) when an old lover enters the picture.

Don't let the Victorian setting fool you, An Agreement Among Gentleman is an incredibly hot book! Munrow is an unashamedly sensual character and I enjoyed watching him slowly become motivated by more than just temporary pleasure. The supporting characters in An Agreement Among Gentleman added a great deal to the story. They provided comic relief and much more. The relationship between Munrow and his valet was especially amusing. As for the love interests, Langton was sweet, passionate, and eager, and Munrow's old lover Truitt was absolutely delicious! The attraction among these three gentlemen just about burned up my laptop. Chris Owen has written a wonderfully sexy historical which will have a permanent spot on my reread shelf.

I thought my fav Chris Owen book was "Bareback". However, An Agreement Among Gentlemen" is the best piece of fantasy yet. What I like about this story is how the story arouses, truly erotic, in a time where same sex love is forbidden. The story is light, but has a bit intrigue and manipulation by those seeking to use others to their own gain. Of course, true love wins in the end, but I was sad that their "happily ever after" could change due to society's needs. How true even today.

The sex was great, but there was really too much of it for me (started to skim the scenes toward the middle of the book.) I didn't like the main character. He was cold and unsympathetic. More about sex than love, and I'm a romantic at heart. Considering the lack of good m/m romance though, it's worth the read.

Good story that moves along nicely. Good character development. Good tension between the young Langton and Munro. Nicely erotic. I liked the cast of characters and especially Munro's friend Truitt. The author hinted strongly at Truitt's need to be disciplined, etc. I wish that area was explored more in the book. Looking forward to reading more ofChris Owen's books. A very good read.

3.5 stars.

I read the first half of the book with a bit of irritation. The main character, Edward, is given an estate and riches by a good friend of his (or better of Edward's father). His benefactor and Edward share the same sexual orientation and the benefactor, a childless widower, instead of marrying and providing an heir to the estate, goes to France with his paramour and leaves Edward with the huge problem of managing his new riches and finding a wife to have an heir.

Edward is not of noble origins, but his father left him an allowance. When we meet him, Edward has never really worked in his life, he's simply enjoyed life. It's difficult to like a character that appears rather inept and dull, he wasn't even convincing as a hedonist, in my opinion. The big problem of his life comes from a dying duke whose fortune had been dilapidated and who blackmails Edward into marrying his widowed daughter, who has already a son who will become heir to a title void of actual riches. The duke knows that Edward is a sodomist - this is a historical romance, you could be sent to prison and hard labour - but he accepts to send his nephew Henri to Edward's hall so that Edward can see if Henri is a suitable heir.

Henri is 19, handsome, with a passion for books and riding in the open and Edward is set on seducing him and flaunting his conquest to the dying duke. Not a nice person, this Edward. You might understand why I was so uncomfortable while reading this, because I couldn't really connect with such a shallow character. At the half of the book, though, Edward has an epiphany: he starts to see Henri as a real person, a young brilliant man who has the courage to pursue his desires.
