Hey everyone, hope that everyone is doing great. So far we are all doing well, but with the economy the way it is who knows what next week brings so keep praying. The school system in my county has to make 100 million in cuts so me along with many other teachers are wondering if we will have a job next year. I remember thinking when I started teaching that it was a good idea because we always need teachers and there will always be kids to teach. but I am foreseeing a very hard time coming up for education and fear for our kids' quality of education.

My hubby is getting ready to launch his new web design company so that is exciting. He is very excited about it and happy that he can do it from home so that he can stay home with the two little ones. I will post the site when he launches it in case any one is interested or curious. :)

Moving on, I had heard so much about this book and how good it was that I got it and the next in the series and read them back to back. Good stuff.

My Fair Captain (Sci-Regency Book 1) by JL Langley
Talk about a compromising situation! A storm of political intrigue, murderous mayhem and sexual hungers is brewing on planet Regelence. Swarthy Intergalactic Navy Captain Nathaniel Hawkins ran from a past he had no intention of ever reliving. But when his Admiral asks him to use his peerage, as an earl and the heir to a dukedom, to investigate a missing weapons stash, hes forced to do just that. As if being undercover on a Regency planet where the young men are supposed to remain pure until marriage isnt bad enough, Nate finds himself attracted to the kings unmarried son. All Prince Aiden Townsend has ever wanted was to be an artist. He has no interest in a marriage of political fortune or becoming a societal paragon. Until he lands in the arms of the mysterious Earl of Deverell. One look at Nates handsome face has Aiden reconsidering his future. Not only does Nate make a virile subject for Aiden's art, but the great war hero awakens feelings in Aiden he has never felt, feelings he cant ignore. After a momentous dance at a season ball, Aiden and Nate find themselves exchanging important information and working closely together. They have to fight their growing attraction long enough to find out who stole the weapons and keep themselves from a compromising situation and certain scandal.

This is a great M/M futuristic romance story. Nate was a great Alpha hero. Aiden was definitely a beta male and it worked for them. The storyline was very good and the world building was unique to me. On this particular planet called Regelence, they live perpetually in approximately Regency England and M/M relationships are the norm. Children are mostly lab created using the DNA of both parents. Nate goes there to investigate a theft, little did he know what he would find there. There is some d/s as well in the story.

In hiding who he was, Payton found himself…and the man he would grow to love. After his brother is kidnapped, Prince Payton Townsend masquerades as an Admiral’s assistant in order to track the culprits through the tangled mysteries of the planet Englor. He finds way more than he bargained for in the form of Marine Colonel Simon Hollister. Simon is no ordinary soldier. He’s heir to Englor and his life is mapped out for him: throne, bride, and eventually an heir. He never expected a dalliance with Payton to blossom into love, or that the organization that taught him to lead would threaten that love—and their lives. Danger and intrigue abound as they learn more about their shared enemy, and about each other. What they learn could help them rise above to an enduring love—or pull them apart.

I read this as soon as I finished My Fair Captain, the first in this series. I loved the storyline, lots of intrigue and romance. This was an excellent futuristic romance. Simon was a great character. He is heir to the throne of his world and is dealing with the politics and intrigues of the court. He is also attracted to men and that is not an accepted thing on his planet. Enter Payton, who is from Regelence, a world where M/M relationships are the norm, and he is also there doing some investigating. I loved watching them and wondering how it was going to work out. Payton was a lot more alpha than Aiden was in the firt book. Simon was the slightly more dominant partner but Pay could hold his own well. This partnership worked a little better for me because it was a little more balanced to me than the last book. Nate has a large role in this story but you do not see Aiden very much. Great book.
