Swarthy Intergalactic Navy Captain Nathaniel Hawkins ran from a past he had no intention of ever reliving. But when his Admiral asks him to use his peerage, as an earl and the heir to a dukedom, to investigate a missing weapons stash, he's forced to do just that.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Only something for fans of the author 1. Februar 2014
Von Rodo
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
As with the other book of Langley's that I read, the author's strengths and weaknesses are quite obvious. She writes good sex scenes, but plot and characterisation seem boring and flat to me and in this case she also makes the unsual setting seem nothing more than a badly thought out porn backdrop.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Regency meets Star Wars 28. April 2010
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Dies ist der erste Band der Sci-Regency Reihe.
Ehrlich gesagt hatte ich meine Zweifel, wie diese beiden Dinge zusammenpassen sollen. Aber da ich sowohl Regency als auch Science Fiction mag und mir die bisherigen Bücher der Autorin gefallen haben, wagte ich einen Versuch.

Nate ist Captain eines Raumschiffes der intergalaktischen Flotte. Eines Tages erhält er den Auftrag, Ermittlungen wegen eines Waffendiebstahls auf dem Planeten Regelence durchzuführen. Regelence ist, genauso wie Nate`s Heimatplanet Englor, ein Regency-Planet. Das heißt, das gesellschaftliche Leben entspricht dem der Regency-Epoche im England des 19.Jahrhunderts. Regelence ist allerdings sehr patriarchalisch, das geht sogar so weit, dass, vor allem beim Adel, die meisten Ehepaare Männer sind. Der Planet ist gentechnisch sehr hoch entwickelt, sodass der künstlich gezeugte männliche Nachwuchs genetisch so verändert wird, dass er das eigene Geschlecht bevorzugt.
Die jungen Männer müssen traditionsgemäß bis zu ihrem 25.Lebensjahr oder ihrer Eheschließung unberührt bleiben. Es gilt deshalb, kompromittierende Situationen und daraus folgende Skandale zu vermeiden.
Gleich nach Nate`s Ankunft auf Regelence landet Prinz Aiden - wortwörtlich - in seinen Armen. Weder Nate noch Aiden sind auf der Suche nach einem Gefährten, trotzdem können sie ihrer gegenseitigen Anziehung kaum widerstehen. Aiden hilft Nate bei seinen Ermittlungen, dadurch kommen sich die Beiden noch näher. Auf einem Ball wird ein Anschlag auf Aiden verübt und dann überstürzen sich die Ereignisse.......

4.0 von 5 Sternen Eine etwas andere "Sci-Fi"-Form 8. August 2010
Format:Taschenbuch
Ich war nie ein Typ für Sci-Fi, noch werde ich es glaube ich jemals sein - doch da ich die Romane von J. L. Langley gerne lese, kam ich um diesen ersten Band der Sci-Regency Serie nicht herum. Und was soll ich sagen? Ich war überrascht - trotz der technisch hochentwickelten Planeten und ihrer Systeme sowie Bewohner, werden einem keine ellenlangen Beschreibungen oder umständlichen Technologien erklärt: es geht um Intrigen, die zwar in diesem Band noch nicht ganz so durchscheinen, aber ein guter Grundstein ist gelegt.

Hauptsächlich dreht es sich um das Kennenlernen und Näherkommen von Captain Nathaniel Hawkins und Prinz Aiden Townsend, die eigentlich gar nicht so wirklich Interesse an eine Partnerschaft haben, aber dem anderen auch nicht wiederstehen können. Für die Geschichte der beiden und den Ereignissen um sie herum hat sich die Autorin viel Zeit genommen, was zeitweise jedoch der Handlung insgesamt eher einen zähflüssigen Charakter gibt - Höhepunkt liegt ganz klar gegen Ende des Buches, was aber nicht bedeutet, dass der Rest davor nicht lesenswert wäre. =)

5.0 von 5 Sternen Engaging, amusing and characters to fall in love with. 7. Mai 2008
Von R.Parklane - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I have a great time reading this. No qualm about purchasing it in print too. This is a great sci-fi M/M romance with an engrossing plot, appealing characters and I like Langley's light hearted, amusing and engaging style. She has created a fascinating futuristic world and the story takes place in a planet, advanced in technology, but living in a Regency period which is patriarchal, with its "charming" protocols. Instead of the virgin ladies being "protected", it is the virgin young men, more so when he is a royalty or lord.
Both main and supporting characters are appealing and lively and they are all gorgeous men of course.
This is vol 1 of a series and centers on Captain Nathaniel Hawks, 100% alpha and a hunk. He has an unhappy past which forced him into exile but he has made an excellent military career for himself.
Then there is Prince Aiden, totally adorable in his innocence, with his artistic flair and intensity. You could not ask for a better or more romantic pairing.
The supporting characters of Aiden's royal Father and Sire and his equally gorgeous brothers as well as Nathan's adopted son are equally likable and I certainly do not mind future volumes to center on any of them.
This is not your usual M/M erotica because there is a wonderful and tightly paced plot here and characters development which take precedence over the sex, which believe me is hot and sensual. A dose of BDSM but it is OK.
Looking forward to much more on this series and bravo, J.L.Langley.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Captain McHotty Takes a (Male) Bride 14. Mai 2008
Von Scott Sherman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
In My Fair Captain, J.L. Langley takes an incongruous batch of ingredients: science fiction, speculative fantasy, historical elements from the Regency period, gay romance, explicit male-on-male action, and a sprawling family saga to create - amazingly! - a deliciously satisfying and spicy dish.

Had you described that to me - had I not read Langley's book myself - I'd think you were nuts. The elements of Langley's story sound like the craziest mash-up since Run DMC joined Aerosmith. Who'd think it could work?

If you read My Fair Captain, you'll be a believer, too. Langley is an author who truly experiences her work. The worlds she describes are fully fleshed out and, in their own incredibly way, totally believable. Regelence, where most of the action takes place, is a vivid setting that you won't soon forget. Imagine a society that combines the customs of 1,800's England with the cast of one of those Falcon videos where everyone is ridiculously hot and totally available, throw in a few Star-Trekian glimpses of future-tech, and you might begin to have a clue.

One of the nice things about the book is that it takes its time revealing the secrets of its society...and its citizens. Things you think make no sense become perfectly reasonable once you understand the planet's laws and values.

Meanwhile, a bunch of likeable and, to many readers, lick-able characters fight and fuss and fall in love. Frustrating the proceedings is fact that most of the book's men are forbidden by law from having sex - not because MM sex is illegal, mind you, but because they must save themselves for marriage - to another man, of course. That leads to a lot of pent up feelings, which, when they're finally released, are all the more explosive for having been contained.

The book's central romance is well-developed in the manner of a Harlequin romance, albeit one where all the heaving bodices have been replaced by pumped-up pecs. There's definitely some explicit sex in this book - much of it of the dom/sub variety - but that's not the primary appeal here by any means -there's not much sheet-wrestling until midway through the book. By then, you'll have fallen in love with Regelence, its characters, and the soaring, surprising imagination of J.L. Langley.

The ending of My Fair Captain leaves more than enough unresolved for a possible sequel. Let's hope we get to go back to Regelence soon.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Rating and Review At Odds 25. Februar 2010
Von Tracy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I find myself in the difficult position of feeling differently about a book than I thought of it, so the 3 star rating (how I felt about it) and the review (what I thought about it) are going to be at odds. And in truth, the star rating would really be more like a 2.5 if I could. But it's not because of the story itself, and therein lies the dichotomy.

I don't know quite what I was expecting from this book, but the blend of sci-fi and regency romance wasn't badly written, really. The characters were perhaps a bit two dimensional and maybe an argument could be made that they were very cliched, but in all honesty, that's sort of the nature of a regency romance and I'm very familiar with the themes. It WAS a bit odd to see so classic a theme as the ton and society mavens parading around in a genetically engineered predisposed m/m culture, but it wasn't done poorly. From the standpoint of plot development and characterization, I'd simply say I wish there had been a bit more fleshing out of the world, making the blend of historical and futuristic a bit more visceral and clear. And while I don't think there was anything wrong with the plot of the action part of the book in which an IN captain goes undercover in the house of the King of a Regency planet to discover the perpetrator of massive weapons theft and ends up discovering a conspiracy that threatens war between worlds, I didn't think it was given enough attention to really be the core of the story.

Admittedly, it is a personal genre preference when reading romance novels that the romance happens either in hand with or AROUND a central core that is not related to the romance and not the other way around.

But it wasn't badly written. I did think some of the situations were a bit too contrived and didn't really feel organic to the plot and story, especially as the conflict reached it's somewhat disappointing and too-pat peak. I did like the characters, though. I would've really enjoyed much more about the King and King-Consort and their children. I thought their characters were quite interesting and would revel in reading more about them, especially with a vehicle that fleshed them out and gave them more face time. I enjoyed the main characters, uber-alpha naval captain Nate Hawkins and artistic dream boy with a flash of spine Aiden to be interesting and likable, and there was enough story there to provide both some depth.

Honestly, if I was rating the story itself and how it was told, I'd give it a 3.5 stars, but I've realized that neither this particular genre - the scifi-regency - nor this particular type of m/m pairing with the big brawny alpha and the submissive effeminate boy to be my cup of tea for m/m romances. I prefer a bit more equality between males - that doesn't have to always be sexual equality, I don't mind a bit of bondage or dom-sub in the bedroom - but I really don't prefer when submissive becomes synonymous with feminine and it extends beyond the bedroom, like it did in My Fair Captain.

2.0 von 5 Sternen uncomfortable read 1. Oktober 2008
Von camille - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
The writnig and plot were good. The concept of a futuristic world in which male virginity is prized was an interesting one, if derivative of Dara Joy's The Ritual of Proof. If Joy's male virgin suffered from the unrealistically-rapid onset of emotional and sexual maturity, the male virgin/bride in My Fair Captain suffered from a continuing and total lack of maturity. Although he was in his mid-twenties, he thought and acted like a tween or young teen -- in fact, he was no different in attitude or behavior than the groom's teen son, with whom he was hanging out. Meanwhile, the groom is a hardened combat veteran and mature man. The disparity in age and behavior was so great and so emphasized by their domination/submission of their bedroom relationship, that it made me somewhat queasy. It honestly felt as though I was reading a taboo story about an older man deflowering a teenager because he has a fetish.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Her weakest novel to date... 18. Oktober 2008
Von Todd C. Spears - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I have to say I was rather disappointed in first foray into space. Her writing as always is very good but the plot was weak and the two main characters (if you could call them that) had zero chemistry. They meet, there is an amazing attraction, they're married via shotgun and realize their in love. That's about it - there is zero conflict between the two. The supporting characters were also hard to follow as there were so many and they all seemed to have two or three names each. It was just too confusing.

The other main issue I had was the nature of the relationship between the captain and the prince. There was very little to make me think the prince was actually of age other than some statements. His behavior was that of a spoiled teenage boy while the captain's was that of an oversexed man interested in very young men. It was a little uncomfortable.
