Captain Hugh Fanshawe returned from the Peninsular War with a leg that no longer works properly, thanks to a French musket ball. Now his fight against Napoleon is reduced to quiet, lonely days compiling paperwork at Horse Guards headquarters.

His evenings are spent dutifully escorting his mother and sister to stifling social engagements, where his lameness renders him an object of pity and distaste. But his orderly, restricted life is thrown into sudden disarray with the arrival of Colonel Theo Lindsay.

Theo is everything Hugh is not—a man of physical perfection and easy yet distinguished address. Surprisingly to Hugh, Theo appears to be interested in making his acquaintance. Lindsay turns out to be a most convivial companion, and Hugh finds great pleasure in his company. Their friendship deepens when they become lovers.

In spite of himself, Hugh falls desperately in love. But when a French spy is suspected at Horse Guards, Hugh discovers nothing is as it seems—and the paper he shuffles from day to day could be the instrument of his lover’s death.

This book was stunning, spectacular, astounding, remarkable, phenomenal, incredible...

You get the idea: it was amazing.
I loved every damn word!

This was my first M/M historical fiction novel, and I really don't think I could have picked a better book for my first foray into this genre.

Whenever I ...more

Sense and Sensibility meets A Minor Inconvenience ~ I just loved the way this book read; like reading a gay Jane Austen. The style of writing and setting was perfect for a regency style MM romance.

For all those who like their historical MM romances, then this book will be just the thing you need. I ...more

By Kaje June 27, 2014

This is a well-done Regency/Napoleonic wars era historical. Captain Hugh Fanshawe, the POV character, was wounded in the war and now has an office job with the Horse Guards, and a bad leg that makes him limp visibly and in his eyes makes him a damaged and undesirable man. This is good in one way, be ...more

I must say that this was not at all what I expected! For some reason I went into this thinking it would be all war/military drama…and it wasn’t!! (I’m certain I only skimmed the blurb months ago when I pre-ordered.) Captain Hugh Fanshawe, thats the MC, received a crippling injury ...more

By Katharina April 19, 2016


This book was a delight. It is well written, felt thoroughly authentic, has a good story line and fantastic characters. And while the plot wasn't as monumental or multi-layered as, for example, Kindred Hearts (which has a similar setting - England during Wellington's campaign against Napoleon), ...more

Intrigue and romance - what more could a girl ask for? Another excellent Historical; I loved that there was no convenient pairing off as sometimes these period MM books are wont to do. Had I not just finished another excellent Historical, this probably would have rated slightly higher...I ...more

A "Live Your Life, Buy The Book" Review

I do love a good historical and this one comes with such a tempting blurb and … hello, can you say “gorgeous cover”? Considering all of those elements, I couldn’t wait to dive in. As it turned out, I really love this story. The character ...more

By Sophia February 10, 2015

I had a feeling when I picked this one up that it was going to be an absolute delight from cover to cover and it was. While I enjoy the recent outpourings of historical romance that are available, it is always with sheer joy that I stumble across a book or series that is convincing as romance and is ...more

By Anna January 16, 2014

I suppose it's a bit infra dig to admit to a love for Regency romances a la Georgette Heyer but there's no denying that a well crafted one, in which the language and writing style matches the genre and there are no jarring anachronisms (I'm looking at *you*, Jane Austen fanfiction, and I'm shudderin ...more

By Chris, the Dalek King April 09, 2016

Ok, I should learn to listen to people when they recommend books to me. Because I really liked this, and I've been putting off reading it for what feels like forever. I kinda figured out the mystery from the beginning, which was a shame, but other than that that story was really well done. Loved Hug ...more

I just adored this sweet historical romance story. These two gentlemen wormed their way into my heart and nearly broke it. I enjoyed the glimpse into the author’s Napoleonic era London, including comportment, fashion, and family in the early 1800s. Thoroughly enjoyable book. ...more

There have been so many great historical romances coming out lately and A Minor Inconvenience is another good addition to the list. A comfortable, entertaining read set in early 19th century England, it is well researched, written and plotted, and has engaging characters, all of them.

What m ...more

By Pjm12 August 12, 2016

I found this quite moving. The construction of Hugh's character, right up to the point where his clearly self unaware character demonstrates such little understanding, he might appear dull or slow.

He is neither.

I liked that Theo was engimatic for the majority of the novel. It was very slow to start ...more

By Walford September 21, 2020

Reread 9/20: Better than the first time! Historicals are my comfort food these days; grateful I have so many good ones to dip into again! The plot really grabbed me this time. Wish Ms Granger had written more like this, and her other titles seem to be out of print. Bummer.
Original review: Mostly a b ...more

By Meggie January 19, 2014

This is a perfect historical romance, indeed. I'm really in great mood after reading such a splendid romance. A well developed romance between Captain Hugh and Colonel Theo Lindsay. Sarah Granger writing style is pulling, her storyline here well developed and ends with HEA. All her character, both M ...more

I REALLY liked this book!

It was well-written, non-sensationalistic but still interesting, I cared about the characters, the setting was well done...

Yeah. It's hard to write a longer positive review... it all just worked for me! ...more

By Kate January 17, 2016

This sat in my TBR for a really long time, but apparently it was just the thing to read this weekend. It's great! I had a few minor quibbles with the plot, but on the whole, it's really enjoyable. ...more

By Sarah January 04, 2020

Very enjoyable! If I say this is one of those quiet romances, which is just plain enjoyable to read, does that make sense? I mean, there is a plot, but it doesn't get in the way of the romance itself, if that makes sense. The atmosphere and the tone were lovely and I read it through in one sitting. ...more

By Charlie September 21, 2020

Stumbled on this by accident and really liked it. A kind of m/m Jane Austen with a dash of Napoleonic history. A little mannered and coy in places, especially about sex, but well plotted and two good main characters, Hugh with his damaged leg and dashing Theo.

What I don’t get is where’s the rest of ...more

Delightful – that is the one word I would use to describe this book. As someone who grew up reading Georgette Heyer and Signet Regencies, this novel was a treat – It was the perfect Regency romance: The Ton, the London Season, the Unsuitable Suitor, Possible Ruin, invitations to Almacks; cl ...more

Lovingly Laid Back

This is an almost laconic, but richly detailed, Regency period romance which takes a lot of twisted turns in terms of character development and plot, but eventually brings out some very strong and viable personalities that I came to admire. In fact, the title perfectly reflects the ...more

About the author

Sarah Granger

Sarah Granger is a sucker for a happy ending. She believes, however, that characters will only appreciate their happy ending if they’ve suffered along the way. Sarah lives in the Cotswolds, an idyllic part of the English countryside with gently rolling hills, dry stone walls of golden stone, and fields dotted with sheep. She has shamefully broken with local tradition by not having a rose growing around her front door. When she isn’t writing, Sarah indulges her passions for horse-riding, gardening, and walking in the countryside.
