A Fine Gentleman
A Fine Gentleman
(The Jonquil Brothers #4)
by Sarah M. Eden
Adult Historical Romance
Paperback & ebook, 256 Pages
March 1st 2017 by Covenant Communications, Inc.


Jason Jonquil can't go anywhere, it seems, without hearing at least one of his many brothers praised to the skies. He is hard working and accomplished, but no one seems to notice. Especially Miss Mariposa Thornton. On the surface, she seems quite empty-headed. But Jason is certain she is hiding something. Initially, he wants nothing more than to be rid of the exasperating lady. But as her mask begins to slip, he finds himself wishing she saw him in the same way the world sees his brothers: as a gentleman worthy of admiration, respect and love.

My Review

A FINE GENTLEMAN was another enjoyable story from this author who consistently delivers sweet historical romance with lovable characters and engaging plots. The plot was unique with a fiery Spanish beauty who challenges an uptight English barrister at every turn, creating quite a bit of humor as well as some romantic sparks. Recommended to those who enjoy sweet romance or Regency romance with some twists.

I loved jumping back in to the Jonquil family. They're like old friends in a way. It was also fun to see how the other books intertwine here and there. Even though this is a series, each book can be read on its own, but it's fun to piece them all together. 

Jason is definitely one of the brothers that I didn't know overly well from the other books and so it was nice to finally get his story. I liked him immediately even though he is being shocked into sputtering and repeating things when Mariposa begins her quest to find her family. Mariposa I also liked, even though she was also rather frustrating. My one issue with the story was that I thought she went much too far with her treatment of Jason and that I thought with her friendship with his brother that she should have confided in Jason much soon or started with the truth. Though, I suppose, that wouldn't have been as entertaining.

The humor and romance were quite enjoyable. Mariposa dishes out the retorts quite easily and Jason eventually takes his own turn in fair play. The romance develops slowly, creating a bond of friendship and love, and surprising the characters when they figure things out. I especially loved the chemistry that developed when the characters travel together and the blundering Jason does later on, which I found quite charming.

In the end, was it what I wished for? I love how Sarah's books never fail to entertain and leave me with sweet contentment at the happily-ever-after endings. This story was one of those. I'm looking forward to reading about the rest of these brothers, hopefully Stanley next!
