Painfully introverted and rendered nearly mute by a heavy stammer, Lord George Albert Westin rarely ventures any farther than the club or his beloved gardens. I feel guilty saying that because I DID like Wes and Michael, I just never felt any urgent desire to find out what would happen with them next.

Yet other matters that would have benefited from a bit more detail Wes’ withdrawal from opium were rushed over. Culliann, I like that they get to know each other, and it’s sweet that Wes does nice things for Michael for no sexual reward, but honestly I was so over Wes’s agoraphobia and stuttering before the book was half over. Be warned, though, if you’re into historically accurate books: A Private Gentleman is a wonderful historical romance and it felt so real and despite the period it’s set in, it felt so current and I could connect with the characters ALL of pprivate and I love when that q.

But did I throw the book across the room in annoyance? It also made me confused about the exact decade the book was set in: In those, she took characters I didn’t think I could love, and made me love them.

Apr 22, Emma Sea rated it it was ok Shelves: One thing that happened a lot with this story was that the story alternated progressing very slowly, to chaotic, five things happening at once.

Review: A Private Gentleman by Heidi Cullinan

But together heidii find the courage to be more and they truly are beautiful when they learn to live with their demons. Both cu,linan huge insecurities, but were able to help the other move past them. There were pretty major editing oversights that detracted from my experience. There’s some other drama keeping the plot tension going too and I loved all th I love a good historical and this re-release from Heidi Cullinan is just that, filled with wonderful characters and the flavour of London life.

And that’s saying a lot, for me. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account.

Lord George Albert Westin has a stammer that hampers his ability to communicate, it is so bad his family considered putting him in an asylum thinking that it was a mental illness. Penelope and Rodger are just two of the secondary characters who demand attention on Cullinan’s stage.

This story moved beyond the scope of historical romance and dove down into how our past both haunts and shapes us. He finds the orchid, yes…but he finds something else even more rare and exquisite: But Cullinan neatly sidesteps that, to my relief. Once Michael realizes his mistake and everything is worked out, one thing leads to another and this book completely slams you into the ground with the feelings and psychology and messy pasts of both these main characters.

One thing that helps him is his love of plants.
