Book Description

In hiding who he was, Payton found himself...and the man he would grow to love.

After his brother is kidnapped, Prince Payton Townsend masquerades as an Admiral’s assistant in order to track the culprits through the tangled mysteries of the planet Englor. He finds way more than he bargained for in the form of Marine Colonel Simon Hollister.

Simon is no ordinary soldier. He’s heir to Englor and his life is mapped out for him: throne, bride, and eventually an heir. He never expected a dalliance with Payton to blossom into love, or that the organization that taught him to lead would threaten that love—and their lives.

Danger and intrigue abound as they learn more about their shared enemy, and about each other. What they learn could help them rise above to an enduring love—or pull them apart.

4.0 out of 5 stars An affair to remember. April 6, 2009
By Sarah
Format:Kindle Edition
So after months of teasers about Payton and Simon the boys are finally here. If you've not already got this weighty tome of an ebook, best you shift your toot and get it now. It is 295 pages of delicious Sci-Regency Romance that is not to be missed.

One element that I kept coming back to in this book is that it is a regency romance. Payton for all intents and purposes has been as cloistered as a nun. Despite the odd foray without a chaperone, also known as the household computer back on his home planet, he is quite innocent in many ways. All this comes to a bit of an end when he hies off to assist the goodness that is Nate on a dangerous mission on Englor. He is certainly more than capable with his mad tech skills. Geeky and cute!

So, here he is far from his home on Regelence and minus duenna. What's a poor boy to do? Fall into the den of iniquity that is the marine base gym of course! Hoo Ahh? Where he meets Simon of the auburn locks and muscular physique. The dynamic between the two men is electric and Payton is like a kid in a candy shop (50 cent song in my head as I write... grubby, bad man) with all the naked men casually undressing, working out and heavens to Betsy showering. But Payton is made of sturdy stuff and does not disappoint with a swoon. Although, he does do a bit of fleeing later in the chapter. JL Langley is just so incredibly good at building that tension and keeping you turning that page till the wee small hours. I totally have bags under my eyes after her books!

The tension was different from My Fair Captain which was cool. I always worry in a series that I am going to get a carbon copy of the previous book. The voice is different from last time. It is certainly not polite regency romance with nighties on and the lamp low either!

4.0 out of 5 stars Greate Regency Sci-Fi May 2, 2009
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Until reading My Fair Captain, I hadn't really even thought about the existence of Gay, Regency, Sci-Fi. I had read SwordPoint and the Night Runner series, but they were more fantasy based (you kind of expect sword and horses and carriages there). I must admit my surprise and delight with Ms. Langley's ability to maintain the "Regency" atmosphere through all the bawdyness and technology.

I loved My Fair Captain! And didn't even know there was a sequel. I ordered The Englor Affair, totally independent of the first purchase, because I liked JL Langley as an author.

Enough preamble. This is a rip roaring good book, in and of itself. The universe and characters from My Fair Captain are there. But, the voice is different, and a new story is told. The excitement, adventure, suspense, and eroticism haven't been hurt one iota, though. This is always the concern with sequels; "Will the voice and/or story hold up as well as the first one?"

And, additional applause go out to Ms. Langley for a SUBSTANTIAL e-book. Too many are short stories, that you barely begin reading before they have finished. I can't say enough good things about the author and the book, except I hope there is a sequel to this one as well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Stardust and Imploding Planets June 14, 2009
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Prior to getting my Kindle, I never read a romance - gay or straight. I picked up J L Langley's With/Without novels and enjoyed them quite a bit and suddenly I have a guily secret. In the months since then, I've read some poorly written stuff - some of which I couldn't finish. This book is not among that list.

The Englor Affair is an interesting mix of science fiction and Regency nobility. As with her other novels I've read, this was fun as well as well written with enough intrique to keep it interesting.

The only think that stuck out for me is the use of words and phrases like 'Galaxy', 'Imploding Planets' and 'Dust' as expletitives; that was just distracting. I'm sure it was done for flavor but I really could have done without it.

That said, I'm looking forward to her next ebook novel.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Englor Affair April 1, 2009
Format:Kindle Edition
I have to commend J. L. Langley on the best book so far! I have read all of her previous books and loved them, but this one made me want the book to never end. J. L.'s story telling is outstanding. She gets you so caught up in the story that you can't put the book down. I read this book in record time. I only wish there was another book in the series. I never read a book twice, but I am going to read this one again. If you like a story that has hot sexy powerful men caught up in intrigue, devious plots, romance and above all Hot Sex, then this is the book for you! Pleas J.L. if you read this, please continue the saga of Regelence and Englor and the hot men of Royal Families!

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun concept, falls down a little bit on execution May 27, 2010
The Englor Affair is number 2 in J L Langley's space Regency series. It's definitely meant to be read as part of that series. A lot of the plot won't make sense if you haven't read Book 1, My Fair Captain, so check that out first. One drawback is that with the first book and with this one the endings feel a bit too unresolved, even for me, who doesn't mind quite an open ending. The romance is resolved, of course, but the rest of the plot doesn't seem to be.

I don't think this is purely down to it being a series though. I just find the endings a little too easy. After setting up the problems nicely for the rest of the book they are too easily solved. Si fears Englor society won't accept his relationship with Payton, but once it's out in the open no big problems appear. He's worried the House of Lords will agree to let the Englor Marines be absorbed into the IN, but talks them out of it - and we don't even get to listen to him do it.

I like sci-fi and I like Regency romance, so putting them together certainly appeals to me. But this second book does feel slightly less successful in exploring the results of what happens when the two are put together. In the first book Regelence society had some very odd aspects, some of which freaked me out a bit, but made me think! So it had more of a twist. This one doesn't explore the potential strangeness as much, which is a shame.

It does repeat the "I compromised you, so I must marry you!" trope from My Fair Captain, which is a bit contrived. I hope all the Townsend brothers don't end up having to get married that way as the series goes on!
