"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

Here is a book with all the right moves--historically accurate in setting, mores, style; craftily drawn and deeply conflicted characters; rip-roaring scenes on the streets, through the woodlands, and in the bedroom. And in the end, you could believe it might have happened.
Jack West (on the left on the cover) and Eli Ashfield are beautifully depicted and their love story full of passion, heartache and heartbreak. But nowhere in the blurb will you find mention of the critical character--Mrs. Constance Sullivan, the catalyst for the plot as well as a few other things that go on.
You will love these three, and there is promise of more from the author. But for now, saddle up and ride, this one is an absolute stunning surprise.
I admit that I truly and sincerely liked the first third of this book. This is the reason for the three star rating, otherwise I would have rated this a 2.5. I felt that the writing was good, and the spy plot was intriguing. I liked the tension between the two MCs. But once they got together, the plot fell away in favor of sex, sex, sex. I love sex in my romances as much as the next person, but when I find myself skimming through yet another melodramatic sex scene, well, then I know it's just a bit too much.
The balance of plot to sex was just way off. That's a pity, really, because this could have a very intriguing novel, and the author could have made the reader work for those lascivious scenes and then feel like the earned them. As it was, if felt like I was at the bargain bin tossing about one worthless item after another.
I'd heard many good things about this book, too bad they didn't prove true for me.
Revolutionary Temptation has a fantastic background in the American Revolution with plenty of intrigue to keep everything fascinating while the two main protagonists work out how they intend to work out their feelings for one another. I was captivated by the wickedness of Eli, charmed by the honor of Jack, and thoroughly thrilled by the unrepentant resourcefulness of Constance. I sincerely hope Constance gets a book or a short of her own because she and her Major Bradford completely deserve their own Happy-Ever-After.
There's lots of spying to go with the romantic entanglements. I enjoyed the addition of the details regarding the status of the troops of the rebel forces. I'd recommend Revolutionary Temptation to anyone who enjoys books written about Historical Americas, not only fans of M/M romance. If you ordinarily wouldn't take a chance on a historical yet are a fan of queer romance? I'd definitely say give this one a try. I doubt you'll regret it. To give the book credit where it's due, I borrowed the book through the Kindle lending program then bought it for my permanent collection because I know I'll read it again and I can't wait for the sequel to come out in February 2018!
The spying/war time part of the novel is very interesting and shares the spotlight with the gorgeous sex scenes I expect from Violet (you won't be disappointed, believe me).
Thankfully I didn't start this one till I had Of Hope and Anguish in my hot little hands. I wouldn't say that Revolutionary Temptation ends in a cliffy exactly but it is clear that the story continues from here. I've got an ARC and no moss will be growing on that one, that's for sure!
I wonder if Constance will get her own book...?
