Hamilton’s eye for the ladies creates the conflict around which the storyline is woven. Though neither Alexander nor his wife Eliza harbor any illusions of compromising their social prominence, their emotions take them along narrow precipices. Alexander finds himself attracted to Maria Reynolds, who hopes to draw Hamilton into a devious web of deceit. Eliza, in turn, finds a kindred spirit in Dr. Severus Black, who becomes her own confidant.
The use of first-person narrative is introduced by Rubino (we suspect), which pulls back the curtain to reveal the ulterior motives of the protagonists. Moreover we find ourselves standing alongside a serial killer on the streets of Philadelphia who eventually begins stalking the shadows of the main characters. It’s a sharp turn from Porter’s usual style which will titillate his readers and keep you turning pages to find out whether Aaron Burr will have anything to do with the climactic finale.
For historical fiction buffs and Porter’s growing reader base of murder mystery fans, Sharing Hamilton by Diana Rubino and Brian L. Porter is a sure-fire hit.
USA. Her descriptions of the intense love affair that took place between Maria Reynolds and Alexander Hamilton don’t hold anything back and it’s sometimes hard to realise this is a fictional, not a factual rendering of their relationship.
Into this tangled romantic web comes a rather handsome, debonair and charming young English doctor, a specialist in women’s medicine by the name of Dr. Severus Black. Introduced seamlessly into the plot by Brian L Porter, a master of the eerie serial killer character in his previous thrillers, Black is a typical Porter character, utterly believable and virtually able to charm the birds from the trees, while harboring a dark secret. As the affair between Alex and Maria progresses, so the streets of Philadelphia begin to flow with the blood of young women, victims of a vicious murderer, an obvious hater of women.
Suddenly we have two stories running, not side by side, but closely intertwined, and so well written that it’s impossible to ‘see the join’ between the work of Rubino and that of Porter.
You’ll have to read it yourself to discover just how it all ties together in the end, and it really does just that, with a terrific ending that left me wanting more.
It all fits together so well that only a five star rating is good enough. What a partnership! Look out Patterson and Paetro, Porter and Rubino are coming!

An amazing and unusual combination of an historical love affair and blackmail set against a background of seriously deranged psycopathic serial murderer Dr Severus Black which is very cleverly incorporated into the story set in Philadelphia of 1791.
A real gripping tale , i was unable to put it down until it was completely finished .
Being a real history enthusiast i love historical novels so had to try this one and was definitley not disappointed .
Dr Severus Black the muderer was excellently incorporated into the story by Brian L Porter i was enthralled from start to finish .This seriously deranged individual who had moved from Paris to escape capture murders female servants , while Mrs Reynolds and Mr Hamilton have a love affair and her husband tries blackmail . Something for everyone .
Well worth five stars . I recommend buying this novel . Brilliant combined effort between Diana and Brian
Well worth my pre ordering
The romance between Alexander Hamilton and Maria Reynolds is skilfully told, and though a fictional account of the true story, it was eminently believable. What made the book stand out for me however, was the way the character of the handsome young English doctor, Severus Black, gradually began to cast a shadow over the proceedings. Behind the gaiety of Philadelphia's upper class lives, a pall of doom seemed to hang over the city as the shadow of a serial killer stalked the night, preying on the innocent servants of the rich and wealthy. One was led to ask, could this debonair and charming men, physician to the wealthy and friend and confidant to Hamilton's own wife, really be a cold blooded killer? As Hamilton and Maria are drawn further into the illicit love affair, so Eliza Hamilton is drawn ever closer to the young doctor. Fate holds much in store for the participants in this strange, dark world of deceit and pretence. The wonder of it all is how the authors talents completely complimented each other. I found it hard to spot the joins where Mr. Porter's superbly chilling back story overlapped with Ms. Rubino's original historical romance to produce a great historical romantic thriller. Excellent, and a very intriguing read.
