Talk Sweetly to Me by Courtney Milan

Talk Sweetly to Me by Courtney Milan.

This is book 4.5 in the Brothers Sinister series (and sadly the last...)

Stephen Shaughnessy, a infamous advice columnist and known rake,  is NOT the type of man you want as a husband but Miss Rose Sweetly is intrigued nonetheless. Having "run into" each other a number of times near their homes, neither know that the other has become intrigued during those brief encounters.

Stephen arranges it so that he has Rose tutoring him in math and science. As they spend more time with each other, they soon realize that their is much more under the surface than either of them expected.

I really enjoyed this last installment of the Brothers Sinister. I liked Stephen in The Suffragette Scandal and fell in love with Rose during this story.

Once again, Milan tells a story that is not often told in historical romances, the love story of a couple that are not of the same race.  If anyone of African descent is a part of a historical romance, they often play the role of servant and not hero or heroine. Thank you for being an author that doesn't follow the other mainstream writers and for choosing topics that are not often brought up in this genre.

Being a math and science teacher, I really loved all the planetary science elements of the story!! Thank you for ending your series with a wonderful story. I will definitely miss these characters!

You can get this story at the following retailers:

Thanks go out to Courtney Milan for a copy of the book in exchange of an honest review.
