    One thought on “The Mark of a Man”

    1. W.T.H I really don t know what to say here, I m just so mad.OK 4 stars for the writing and story but 1 Star for the ending lol.Not at the story, that was brilliant, up to the end I was drawn in from the start, the characters were believable and likeable The plot was interesting and had me eagerly reading to see how it would end then BAM it stops Literally just stops I even thought I was missing a few pages A total cop out as far as I m concerned Not even a hint at a part 2 Not that I m sure I wo [...]

    2. First and foremost, my general stance has been I don t read historical stories, just have never liked them Wanting to add some variety and expand my reading, I decided with the new year I would try to read a least one book a month outside my normal reading Through gentle prodding and encouragement I was assured that this would be the right book to begin with I have to say that this was the perfect book for me to start with The story was so well written and I was so drawn to the characters, the a [...]

    3. 3.5 starsI m actually rating this lower than my enjoyment level which was right around 4 stars simply because I felt a bit cheated at how short the story is By the way the story is written, it seems obvious that this must be the beginning of a series, but this read like the first few chapters, or a really short Part 1 of what could or should be a 3 or 4 part novel Even just 2 parts and I would have felt better The main reason for this is that the buildup implies that there is something big comin [...]

    4. Very enjoyable historical set in Britain If I have any complaints it s that the book ended a little too suddenly and I m hoping this means a sequel is in the works.I really liked Alec and Kit Their sexual tension sizzles off the page but the book overall is very chaste The hurt comfort scenes worked very well with plenty of emotional content to contrast with the faster paced chase scenes The plot involving nefarious nobles and a gang of mercenaries worked well within the setting and the constant [...]

    5. 25 8 2011What happened to the rest of the story I was deep into the adventure, right along with Kit and Alec and as the excitement and intrigue builds it suddenly ends and I am stuck thinking what happened I m not exactly thrilled, all I can say is there has to be a sequel planned and hopefully soon.3 1 2013Re reading to refresh my memory before I start the sequel I still like Kit and Alec very much, they deserve another story so I am excited to find out what s in store for them in The Measure o [...]

    6. Synopsis Kit works is slave to the top man of the syndicate When he is arrested kidnapped while he is doing some routine errands, he doesn t know how to let the men know that they could be in danger Alec has been ordered by the Lord Chancellor to take a group of his men and escort a thief back to the capital As Alec gets to know Kit, and know about the situation that Kit has been in for most of his life, Alec realizes that he cares for Kit, and that the men coming after them will stop at nothin [...]

    7. Pleasing short historical M M story Guardsman Alec leads a contingent of soldiers to capture the young thief Kit Unbeknownst to Alec there are ulterior motives for Kit s capture and it could lead them all into terrible danger.Although I enjoyed this story I felt like it was just the first few chapters of a novel Alec and Kit become attracted to one another but there is no consummation of their desire The story does have a HFN ending with Alec making a dangerous choice to save Kit s life I also l [...]

    8. I first read this when it first came out, and I liked it a lot but it was way too short, and felt like it ought to be the beginning of something much larger, rather than a stand alone I wanted to see the relationship develop between Alec and Kit, and felt rather cheated at the end of the story Now that the sequel, The Measure of a Man, has come out, I had to read it again to refresh my memory I still like it but I still feel cheated.

    9. 3.5 starsThe story was great but the ending left me a bit dissatisfied Alec and Kit seem like they re going to have a relationship and Robert is like a third wheel at the end I hope there s a sequel I would like to know how their escape turned out.

    10. Interesting shortly developed novella with to open ending This could be taken like a beginning or a start into new series Overall it was fine short story.

    11. I thought this book was really good, but I am concerned that there won t be a sequel, and I really want it to continue.
