#Review: TO RUIN A GENTLEMAN by Shana Galen

  5 of 5 stars
I've been a fan of Ms. Galen for a while now and have thoroughly enjoyed her previous books. "To Ruin a Gentleman" is the start of a new series and I absolutely loved it! The story is told from father to son and follows the widowed Comtesse Angelette and Viscount Hugh Daventry during the start of the French revolution. I felt like I was living through this awful time the writing was so visceral. Not many authors can successfully convey a complete story in a novella, but Ms. Galen accomplishing just that. I couldn't read fast enough to find out what happened to Hugh and Angelette during that time.

I loved Tom's reaction after his father had finished telling him the tale of the real Scarlet Pimpernel. He was dumbfounded as he always believed his parents were extremely dull. What other secrets did his parents have? I'm looking forward to reading the rest of the stories in this series.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review and was not obligated to leave a review.
