London Jobbing writer, proprietor of the Matrimonial Advertiser and all-round weasel Theo Swann is just trying to get by when Martin St. Vincent turns up. Martin is a merchant, tasked with putting a stop to a wealthy young heiress's romantic correspondence in the Advertiser.

And when she and her swain make a dash for Gretna, Martin drags Theo after him on a breakneck high-speed fourteen miles an hour! The question is, as entanglements, deceptions, and revelations come thick and fast, will any of them be the same again? I had a lot of fun with this book, I hope you enjoy it! View all 10 comments. Charlesand I think she is an exceptionally talented author. However, this one didn't grab me like her other books. The book is very adventure-y, and while I sometimes like stories like that, I usually like more character-focused Nice gentleman wanted.

I like lots of slow burn and lots of sexual tension, and while we did get some tension in this enemies-to-lovers story, I didn't feel that "snap" of a connection like I crave. The blurb was great and the characters were well conceived, but it all didn't fully come together. Anticipating and trying to guess what that twist was distracted me from the story. My best advice to readers is to not think about any twist. It isn't a crazy twist or anything bizarre, but it changed how I felt about the story, for sure.

More than anything, it made me feel frustrated because it felt like an inorganic plot device rather that fitting smoothly with the story. The story shines in the sense of time and place, which this author always does well, but even though I'd say that I liked it, I don't think I'd continue on if this was a series.

Maybe with a different author, one who wasn't one of my favorites, I'd be more impressed. View all 5 comments. Charles, so of course the writing is engaging, the dialogue masterful, and the sense of time and place in this case London strong.

Theo makes his living putting together a sort of "city weekly" for those seeking marriage or more. Not all the are honest, but Theo doesn't care. He just wants to make money. His true passion is writing fiction, and he does that under the pen name Dorothea Swann.

Martin needs help, and Theo is a man for hire. The tongue is not for sale; Theo gives that away for free. This isn't a long book, so Martin and Theo spend but a few days together on chasing a spoiled, stubborn year-old girl who thinks it would be quite an adventure to elope to Scotland with a rake a not so dashing one.

Martin, who's of African decent, is a free man and while he doesn't feel he owes anything to his former master, his relationship with the man is complicated. And he cares for Miss Jennifer, his former master's daughter, whom he's known since she was but a babe. In many ways, Theo is more than the sum of his parts.

He really sees Martin, is angry on his behalf, and doesn't treat him any differently because of the color of his skin. Martin gets that, appreciates it, and can't help but lust after the man who fucks like a tomcat. Where the story lost me is with the "twist" around the 65 percent mark. I wasn't expecting it, but then again, the narrative isn't entirely honest. We get Nice gentleman wanted men's POV, yet one of them isn't forthcoming with us. The last couple chapters read a bit like a penny romance, with the hero, the villain, the maiden in distress, and none of it as it seems.

It's supposed to read this way, but I didn't find it entirely appealing and wished for a less dramatic resolution. The ending is a fairly hopeful HFN, and the last scene gets all the thumbs up. This is not my favorite K. Charles book, but it was still good fun. Rounded up because Theo has a dirty mouth and Martin is only sometimes a gentleman.

Her characters and little twists are always gripping and so well done. Martin, and especially Theo were such interesting characters with so much depth. Martin is a free-man, after be 4. Martin is a free-man, after being freed as a slave by his Masters, and is now hunting down their wayward daughter as a favour to them. Theo was my favourite, life and circumstances have been hard on him and he too is full of a lot of resentment and regret.

He is such a weasel though, and I loved that more human, very cheeky side to him. That was probably because he was a decent man with morals who knew right from wrong. Theo looked. He watched Martin pull his white shirt over his head, baring his deep chest, a rich glinting brown in the candlelight.

I loved watching these two get to know each other. Theo is one wanton minx and Martin is all delicious dominance and I freakin loved it! Theo Swann eeks out a small desperate living, publishing a lonely hearts publication probably the version of Grindr, Tinder, OKCupid and everything in between.

What follows is a wild race from London to the Scottish border at breakneck speed not to mention sore arses and aching ts and along the way, Theo and Martin learn they are both inclined to men: "I'm not doing this with spit," Martin said flatly. I've done worse. On the whole, I enjoyed the story giving it 3. Charles, and anyone involved in making the blurb for Wanted, A Gentleman.

Seriously, it is definitely one of the most creative blurbs I have ever seen!! I love the sub title, Or, Virtue Over-Rated ; which kinds of giving a clue about what the story is all about, really. The gist of the story is this: Martin St. Vincent ropes the help of Nice gentleman wanted Advertiser's scribbler Theodore Swann in order to locate the daughter of Ma 3. Vincent ropes the help of Matrimonial Advertiser's scribbler Theodore Swann in order to locate the daughter of Martin's former master who is going to Nice gentleman wanted with a questionable gentleman.

Then we have a rush of carriage pursuing the couple -- and of course Martin and Theo getting attracted towards one another in between. Since it was a novella length, I thought things happened pretty fast between both men. The relationship wasn't as ' deep ' as I preferred it to be. While in retrospect, after I finished reading, it sort of fit with the characters, I couldn't help thinking that the twist made the story felt Personally, I thought that the relationship felt like more like a business trade after that.

I couldn't help that maybe they getting together was pretty much helped by the pleasure of the flesh rather than attraction of minds and virtues.
