About the Author

J.L. Langley said her first words at six months of age. By the time she was a year old, she was talking in complete sentences and, as most of her family and friends will tell you, she hasn't shut up since. After becoming an accomplished motormouth, J.L. set out to master other avenues of self-expression, including art, and dance.
She attended the University of Texas, where she majored in art and worked as a dance instructor on the side. Her love of artistic expression in dance landed her a career in which she taught and performed for over twenty-five years. After marriage to her junior high school sweetheart and the birth of their children, J.L. decided to try her hand at writing. To date, she has several successful novels and a handful of novellas to her credit.
She lives in Texas, where she was born and raised, with her real-life hero, their rowdy two boys, two even rowdier German Shepherds, and ten goldfish, one of which is named Jaws. When she's not writing, she can usually be found with her nose in a book appreciating the communication skills of other writers.

I never read books more than once, but J.L. Langley is awesome. I could not put it down. I had to find out what happened to Nate and Adrian. A touching love story, with super hotsex scences.And men in uniforams. I'm hooked.

I love the first edition of these stories but these polished, fleshed out version are excellent! I can't wait to read the other books in this series.

While I hadn’t read the first edition, I can assure you that J.L. Langley’s My Fair Captain is polished, provocative, and perfectly paced. With an exciting mystery, a unique and creative story, and a smokin’ hot romance, what more could you want? Well, whatever you’re looking for, My Fair Captain delivers. This is the first J.L. Langley book I’ve read and I’m so impressed! She sets the stage perfectly, presenting both characters’ current state of contentment so thoroughly that their spark of attraction made me a bit giddy. I was also happy to discover that Langley writes a mighty enticing sex scene. Not wanting to miss anything I went back and read a few of them again… in the interest of writing a comprehensive review, of course. Estranged from his family on his home planet Englor, Intergalactic Navy captain Nathaniel Hawkins has made his ship his home and its crew his family. While he has a few lingering regrets over the way he left, he’s basically a happy man. Likewise, Prince Aiden Townsend is thoroughly wrapped up in his art and participating in his brothers’ mischievous deeds. Stories of the young princes’ playful misbehavior, sneaking out of the castle and creatively ditching their dance cards, are sweet and funny. It’s a good way to demonstrate Prince Aiden’s youth and naiveté, not to mention his innocent and beguiling nature. When the prince literally falls into Nate’s arms, their powerful connection takes them both by surprise. Nate knows he can’t pursue Aiden. Debauching the virginal young prince is out of the question. Aiden also recognizes that any liaison with the handsome Captain will leave him ruined. But he’s intrigued by the feelings his attraction brings to light. As the men continue to cross paths the sexual tension increases to spectacular proportions. Langley builds it up beautifully, and I don’t want to spoil anything for you, but this is one I’ll remember *wink*. Still, My Fair Captain isn’t all sex and romance. There’s also an intriguing mystery. In fact, it’s the reason Captain Hawkins is bound for the planet of Regelence to begin with. While I wouldn’t technically call it a cliff-hanger, since we get our happy ever after with Nate and Aiden, the mystery isn’t resolved at the end of the book. I have my fingers crossed that we will be treated to what promises to be a darn good mystery. There are so many clever and creative ways both the Sci-Fi and Regency romance aspects are woven into this story. As a fan of both genres, I’ve just discovered my new favorite series. Although publication dates aren’t available yet, on her website J.L. Langley states that reissues for the two previously published Sci-Regency books are on the way. She also promises several new novels in this addictive series. So while I’m late to the party with My Fair Captain, my timing turns out to be excellent.

"My Fair Captain" was my first gay romance novel. A fan of many genres, I did an unsuspecting (albeit whimsical) Google search for 'gay military science fiction' and was introduced the world of MM Romance. As is with most readers, the novel that introduces you to the genre is special. I'm glad this was mine. "My Fair Captain" is a non-genre novel that could be described as gay fiction meets Horatio Hornblower in space meets Jane Austen. The author sets her story in a "Regency" world whose culture intentionally retains a simpler way of life in the past, yet are still connected to other worlds through technology. The result are images of 18th century loading docks, where huge space freighters float over masted sailing ships, and where military officers run through spaceship corridors with swords and scabbards. The reader finds themselves in an intoxicating "gay-utopia," where the noble-ruling class are genetically engineered to be homosexual. Whereas, other worlds in a planetary alliance are sadly similar to our own. This is where Langley finds the story's tension: a romance between a dashing captain and a come-of-age member of the Regency's nobility. As I was new to the genre, I was expecting more gay fiction than gay erotica. (After many reads, I like both approaches to MM Romance.) As I began reading the first sex scene, my heart began beating faster, and I had to laugh at myself, thinking "This is what it must be like for a chick reading "Love's Savage Secret!" ;) The point is that this book is certainly a hot read. After many MM novels, Langley's sex scenes are some of the most memorable. NOTE: Don't let not liking one of the genres prevent you from reading this book. Langley's world is so expansively creative that you only need to be a fan of one of the genres, or even none, to enjoy this exceptional read, so richly written are her characters.

I absolutely love J.L.s style! Its difficult for me to find good M/M romance that is more than just sex based (you get just the right amount alongside the action side of the story). Remember though, this is a series not a single title, the story is far from over!

Never having read an m/m before I absolutely loved this book. If you enjoy sci-fi, historical m/m romance then this would be the book for you. I've re-read it atleast 3 times since reading it the first time. And the second book is even better!

Great but not spectacular. But that could be because it took me a while to figure out what was going on.
