You may or may not have jumped to my blog from Alpha Heroes
(she has some looooovely pics up for 4th of July celebrating!).
On to my letter:
Dear J.L. Langley,
Thanks so much for your excellent books! I have enjoyed all of them, and appreciate the fine quality of the writing. I think my first Langley book was My Fair Captain
, and it's no secret that Nate is one of the finest alpha males ever, or the Steamy McSteamiest of Heroes
. You did a great job combining the culture of the Regency period with science fiction. I can't think of another author who does that. Historical mores, dress and politics run side by side with a planet where men are born to love other men and build families with them. An interstellar navy, an action-adventure mystery and some BDSM elements make this a win all around for me. Not to mention the compromised virgin and a long-lost heir. You weave these bits together so fluidly, and build the action masterfully. You followed this up successfully with The Englor Affair
, and I'm patiently waiting for The Regelence Rake.
Can you tell this is a favorite book of mine?
Your With or Without Series is also excellent despite being very different from the Sci-Regency books in that it takes place in a current day setting with werewolves as the main characters. I particularly like With Caution
. Particularly the relationship between Remi and Jake. Particularly that scene by the couch. You know the one I mean.
Let's not forget the Ranch series as well as the Innamorati, proving you are just as good with cowboys as you are with werewolves and sci-fi Dukes and Princes.
All in all, you've given me hours of entertainment, pleasure (and a few stray tears). Keep writing!
