Introducing Mr. Winterbourne (Winterbourne #1) [Lysander & Adam] by Joanna Chambers

REALLY enjoyed this one! I loved everything I've read by Joanna and this seems no different! This story is really short time-wise - the whole plot takes place in ONE day in which Lysander Winterbourne has to take Adam Freeman - a wealthy business man who is about to marry his sister - around Town. 

They don't start off well especially with everyone looking down at Adam for not being Nobility and Adam on his part isn't impressed or interested in all these snob-y types. Then when the both just act on what THEY enjoy they start to see each other in a total different way. 

I loved the sexual tension and how much they needed to be SURE of the other sexual orientation, I could totally get that considering the time this novella takes place.. Lysander was really sweet, and Adam just needed someone who understands him and sees him for who he is (not just a way to get money..). Both of them got what they needed. Oh, one last thing, this novella is told from both their POVs which I really appreciated :)  

Originally published as a part of "Another Place in Time" Anthology.

Winterbourne is an Historical Romance series by Joanna Chambers. Though the name of the series implies it's all about Lysander Winterbourne it's not really though both Lysander and Adam appear in all novellas. That's the other things, sadly, all four stories are rather short though the 4th is the longest which makes me hope Joanna will write more of them and make them full length as I ADORES all of them. 

Being high born surely helps if you are a certain sexual preference while living in the beginning of the  19th centaury. It doesn't mean it's easy though especially someone you can trust  and find a way to share your life with. 

My real interest in reading Historical novels (especially of this age) started with Joanna's Enlightenment series an as it's name it brought something new and wonderful into my life and now every new publish by her gets an automatic 1-click buy.
