I pre-ordered this book and counted the weeks till it would be delivered to my Nook! It got there and I devoured it within two days! (Luckily my 5 yr old granddaughter LOVES to water paint!!) This is a continuation of the Lost Lords but is totally independent of the others.
I have Loved Mary Jo Putney's books for years and own every one (in book and e form). This starts with "Cassie" rescuing a "Lost Lord" who'd been in a small cell for 10 yrs. There are some bits missing to my mind (I met a man one time at a lecture who'd served 12yrs in prison and he couldn't sleep in big open areas for 2 yrs after his release) but even with Grey's strong mind and quick thinking of keeping in shape--I expected more of the internal struggles from Ms.Putney. She was so wonderful with a character that was drugged during the war-time incarceration that I expected the same with this one.

HOWEVER with that said--this book is a joy from page one to the end. IT hooks you and your thoughts and you will not want to put it down. Not only is there Grey but Cassie the heroine has struggles of her own and layer after layer is uncovered through the book.
I would recommend this book to any and every lover of Historical Romance. There is a lot of explicit sex but many women want that in their books. I have theory that sometimes--the buildup--and waiting till the end of the book for the physical sex to happen can be very sensual!

As soon as I read the excerpt for this book after I finished reading "The Rake," I knew I wanted to read this book!!! I even pre ordered it. And I have to say that although it was decent, it fell so short of my expectations. One of my disappointments was that Ms. Putney could have created such a much more intense and turmoiled Grey but after 10 years of incarceration, he instantly almost falls for Cass. I was so hoping that Cass would have to breakdown barriers to get a standoff, bitter, isolated Grey to love her, especially since Ms. Putney brought this type of character to life so admirably in "The Rake." It was the complete opposite of everything I hoped for.......in a bad way. Grey rebounded back with only fear of crowds and a problem not throttling others when angry. Aside from that, he was charming and horny as ever (REALLY ?!?!?). And that leads to my second disappointment.....the sex scenes. They were multiple but they were so glossed over and were summarized in a couple of sentences!!!!! There were almost no details and by far some of the most sad, uninspiring descriptions of displays of love that I have ever read. The potential for a really great story turned so predictable but I kept reading, praying it would somehow get better........IT NEVER DID. It really hurts me to review Ms. Putney's work unfavorably because many of her books in the past have been TOP NOTCH, but if someone is going to spend their hard earned money, you deserve quality..........and unfortunately, it was not delivered this time.

    Mary Jo Putney brings us another installment in her Lost Lords s

    Mary Jo Putney brings us another installment in her Lost Lords series with the highly anticipated release of No Longer A Gentleman. In an attempt to reunite all the Lost Lords, James Kirkland continues on his own personal mission to find the missing member of their elusive group; Grey Sommers, Lord Wyndham the heir and future Earl of Costain who mysteriously disappeared while in France trying to gain information (for James), during the battle between England and France over ten years ago. Kirkland, who is still trying to live with the guilt that plagues him to this day, refuses to believe his friend who was so full of life can be dead. Having been provided with new hope as part of a bargain with a captured French spy, Kirkland sets off to enlist the help of his most successful agent and spy; Cassie Fox. (We readers were introduced to Cassie’s skills in the previous installment in the Lost Lords series “Nowhere Near Respectable”! In an effort to determine whether the rumor surrounding a young blonde Lord held prisoner in a castle dungeon belonging to a devious high-ranking official at the Ministry of Police named Claude Durand, Cassie is willing to forgo the danger to find the truth. Cassie fears the clue to be false but wants to put Kirkland’s troubled mind at ease and finally hoping provide the proof confirming whether Wyndham is alive or dead. Cassie’s greatest fear however, if the tip proves true and she does find Wyndham alive, after ten years of being held prisoner there are no guarantees this Lost Lord will be the friend Kirkland once knew.
