About the Author
Sarcastic, sassy and over-educated writer of deliciously smutty, plot-packed stories that celebrate men loving men, often. My stories, often dark and always sexy, focus on master/slave power dynamics, the vicissitudes of fate, and the fragility of historical memory. My passions are ancient Rome, laughter, and wine.
When JP Kenwood says that something is going to be filthy, she delivers -- but she also delivers on the plot and the story that I’m coming to rely on when it comes to this particular author. I really enjoyed reading both of these stories, and I honestly can’t say which I enjoyed more. Lucius is probably my favorite character of the books (JP, darling, I resist the urge to give spoilers here), and it’s nice to see him in both stories.
We also get to see Nic, who I adore, and Bryaxis, while Lucius yet again defies the norm in favor of what he wants even as he does his duty.
These were beautifully written stories, with just enough of a balance between smut and story to keep me interested from start to finish. Readers shouldn’t fear the word ‘historical’ in association with the novella. There’s enough explanation to keep the reader understanding what’s going on without so much that the eyes glaze over with too much of it.
If you haven’t already read Dominus and Games of Rome, never fear; these stories take place before those books and can be read beforehand. These are reminiscent of Kate Aaron’s Free Men series -- though admittedly grittier and darker. While the novellas are short and sweet, expect the books to be anything but.
Awesome short stories, JP Kenwood is my favorite erotic writer and she always delivers with great clear writing and easy and fun story telling without the old cliches and tired old plots. Although Luc is not one of my favorite character, really I can't see for the life of me his appeal since to me He comes as a empty man of privilege that never endured any hardship and just spent his life on pursuit of his pleasure and carnal desires at least his relationship with Bry a more complex and likable character make reading these stories a great treat coupling with JK Kenwood, awesome funny, great skills as a writer. Definitely a A+
