Review

“Sparks skillfully infuses her writing with a deliciously sharp wit, and the second in her sexy contemporary vampire series is wickedly fun.” (Booklist)

“An absolute delight! Can’t wait for the next book in the series!” (Lynsay Sands, USA Today Bestselling Author)

“You won’t regret picking up every last one and adding them all to your keeper shelf.” (Long and Short Reviews blog)

Fans of Sparks’s paranormal romances may be surprised by the lack of vampires, but will not be disappointed. (Publishers Weekly)

Customer Reviews

I love how Matthias fights his feelings so hard only to fall head over heels in love.
H. Hinz
I have read several of Ms. Sparks stories, she writes some great vampire books with much humor and sexy characters.
Pamerd
The truth of the war brings sadness, but in her usual way the author brings humor into the story.

Less Than a Gentleman takes place in South Carolina during the Revolutionary War as the British were making their way through the countryside taking whatever they wished. I have not read a historical set in this time period for many years and I definitely enjoyed the change.

Captain Matthias Murray Thomas was held by the British for a short while and with help, his group escapes, he meets up with a Scotsman named Jamie Munro, a major in the army who is worried about his daughters, Virginia Stanton and Caroline Munro. He asks Matt to keep an eye out for them and to send word if he sees them.

The sisters have been walking and hiding from the British in the countryside for several days. They finally come across a large home and seek help for the two kids, Charlotte and Edward and the very pregnant Virginia. Jane, the woman of the house quickly brings them in, at first thinking Caroline is another neighbor, she quickly realizes her mistake but she is desperate to marry off her son and takes a liking to the little family so keeps the ruse going.

Jane is Matt's mother and lives at Loblolly Plantation with a few remaining servants but she is lonely and although Matt comes home to visit and check on her, he leaves each night to go back to his troops in the woods. When he meets the sisters he wants to know what Caroline is up to so he pretends he is the butler, Haversham. Matt realizes Caroline is Munro's daughters and is intrigued by her but because she refuses to fall for anyone who is a soldier he keeps his identity a secret from her.

The danger heats up along with Matt and Caroline's attraction as the British camp out at the house. There is spying, secrets and a baby!

I zipped through The Forbidden Lady and I am just as pleased with Matt and Caroline. If you haven't read Virginia and Quincy's story, read it now. Less Than a Gentleman was a wonderful continuation of the Monro sisters doing what they do best. Fighting for their families, their independence and spying on the Redcoats.

The American Revolution isn't my favorite time period, but this book and Forbidden Lady have changed my mind. Less Than a Gentleman is the companion to Forbidden Lady taking several years later with many of the same characters. I fell in love with this book like I did Forbidden Lady. Mathias and Caroline are perfect for each other

Format: Kindle Edition
Patriotism, history, spies and romance: what more could you want? This story by Kerralyn Sparks has all of that and more, and told using sublime characters that bring the story to life.

Caroline is completely adorable, you can't help but like her as her goal is to protect her family: at all costs. She is smart and clever, with an independent streak a mile long. Her assumption of Agatha's identity, although not honest, was done with the best intentions: the first encounters with Matthias are laugh out loud funny.

Matthias is equally attractive, aside from his unwillingness and later inability to share his real identity with Caroline: despite the fact that he cannot pass long moments without thinking of her. Heir to the plantation and the slaves held there: although he wants no part of it. A recurring nightmare from childhood and the loveless attitude of his father to his mother have soured him on the idea of marriage and children.

This is a historical romance that is well-grounded in the facts of the history, without becoming overwhelmingly factual or dry. Characters maintain a sense of the time, conversations, thoughts and behavioral standards of "appropriate" are all given their just due, yet there is no feeling for the reader that this is a lesson. Everything flows in a natural and smooth manner. Loaded with action and adventures for the characters increases both the tension and pacing, there were several points where I could only hold my breath as the confrontations came to a climax. These are real people, well portrayed with faults and baggage that they must learn to work with or around to finally have their happy ending.

Less Than a Gentleman by Kerrelyn Sparks
Historical Series Book Two
Matthias Murray Thomas has a lot on his shoulders. Fighting for freedom with a price on his head, protecting his mother and his plantation and now he has a fiery redhead who does not take orders...at all. And she thinks he’s a butler.

Caroline Munro has been through a lot in her life so far. Now at twenty-six it has fallen on her shoulders to protect her very pregnant sister and her niece and nephew. The war rages on as the redcoats invade more territory and take what they want. If she has to pretend to be someone else for them to have food and shelter in the huge plantation home, that is what she’ll do.

This story is full of adventure, danger and romance. The truth of the war brings sadness, but in her usual way the author brings humor into the story. We first met Caroline in the first book The Forbidden Lady, as a young fifteen year old who had a loose tongue at the worst times. She may be older, but her tongue is still a bit out of control. The excellent story telling from Kerrelyn’s Love at Stake series is continued in both historical books.
