The Challenged by Love E Boxed Set really caught my eye All of these stories follow disabled heroes all of these stories are set in a time when one s sexual orientation could end up with a noose around one s neck even if you had the social status to protect you somewhat At no point did I forget the obstacles inherent, and I appreciated this so much CalibanCaptain Theodore Hedgeford was wounded in the war, and after he s abandoned by his lover because of it, Theo s gun shy and in pain and gives up on finding someone to accept him as he is Enter Robin Thornfield, Theo s new orderly This isn t my favorite in the set, but Theo s such a wonderful character While he may be down, he s certainly not out I like how he discovers a new side of himself, and as such, the intimacy is out of this world There s also a side plot working steadily in the background, but be aware that there s possible triggering situations in this one Overall, super sweet and poignant NarcissusThis one is my favorite in the bundle and it brought full on waterworks Julian Mure discovers his attraction to men when he meets his sister s fianc e, Alasdair Thinking Alasdair s lost to him, Julian earns himself the name Narcissus His life changes when a freak accident costs him an eye and an arm He secludes himself in Scotland to heal just in time for the newly widowed Alasdair to come back into Julian s life While this one s fairly short, it felt much longer in a great way The feels are so strong and present Julian s such a vulnerable character, finding himself unlovable, all the while lusting after his deceased sister s husband Alasdair is Julian s commanding and patient counterpart The added taboo and the absolute vulnerability inherent in both of these characters makes this story shine VulcanIf the previous one brought the emotional conflict, this one brought the heat Nicholas Beauregard has certain submissive needs, but he doesn t know how to find a man to meet them That, and his game leg has kept away potential suitors He hopes that Viscount Sebastian Colvin s annual revel will bring the Dominant man he s looking for Vulcan is about two men coming together and realizing there may be between them then meeting each other s needs This one is just as short as Narcissus, but I read through this one the fastest I love a good masquerade, and this one had a great meet up Add in the the Greek costumes and themes and it quickly became my second favorite in the series.
Overall Rating 4 stars The characterizations are phenomenal The portrayal of disabilities and trials and constrictions of the time period are treated with sensitivity Challenged by Love E Boxed Set blew me away completely, and I m definitely going to be picking up of Autumn Montague s novels in the future I voluntarily reviewed an arc via the publisher Reviewed by Michaelene from Alpha Book Club
