Unnatural by Joanna Chambers

The heart breaks but does not change.

Captain Iain Sinclair. Perfect son, perfect soldier, hero of Waterloo. A man living a lie. The only person who really knows him is his childhood friend, scientist James Hart. But they’ve been estranged since Iain brutally destroyed their friendship following a passionate encounter.

Iain is poised to leave the King’s service to become an undercover agent in India. Before he leaves his old life behind, he’s determined to reconcile with James. An invitation to a country house party from James’s sister provides the perfect opportunity to pin the man down.

James has loved Iain all his life, but his years of accepting crumbs from Iain’s table are over. Forgiving Iain is one thing—restoring their friendship is quite another.

In the face of James’s determined resistance, Iain is forced to confront his reasons for mending the wounds between them. And accept the possibility that James holds the key to his heart’s desire—if only he has the courage to reach for it.

Warning: Contains a dashing military hero with one weakness—a scientist who feels their chemistry in every cell of his body. Kissing in the rain, skinny dipping, and emotional flashbacks. Huzzah!

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

I have to confess to not choosing to read historical romances very often, but this peaked my curiosity and I am delighted that I gave it a go.

Set firmly in history, the story gives a good impression of the times and of the lengths to which men of society had to go to hide their natural instincts. Iain and James have known each other since childhood, and known of each other's interest nearly as long – yet the elder, Iain, cannot face the scandal he would bring upon his dearest friend. The story is told by shooting backwards and forwards in time – which did work, although I am not generally a big fan! And although it centred firmly on the two men, their families played some important roles in how the plot unfolds. This was a sensual story more than a sexy one, although the chemistry between the two is evident from the first.

Thank you Ms. Chambers, I shall be adding you to my authors to look out for list, and be checking through your current books for inspiration.
