Historical romances starring gay couples are often focused around the danger of the act or how homosexuality is sinful or wrong or shameful Dreamspinner Press has several books in a series where opinions about homosexuality are lessened considerably through fiction which I appreciate a lot I love being able to simply enjoy an historical romance without the constant reminder of how bigoted the mindset of society was in the era Hollis Shiloh tells a lovely sweet romance between Adrian Knowles a posh gentleman of considerable wealth whose sexual preferences are known yet left unuestioned by society and Oliver Ollie Windham who is the poor nephew of a man of meager means and morals alike Adrian and Ollie meet under accidental circumstances only for Adrian to take it upon himself to give Ollie a chance at a better life by hiring him to be his librarian Ollie is very much a wounded young man at the beginning He s been told his uncle plans to sell him to someone as a bedmate as if he is worth nothing than his pretty face and form Education was sporadic for him growing up often Ollie was denied schooling in favor of having him take the place of a governess whose job was to care for his younger cousins which has led him to have very poor self esteem It s hinted at throughout the work some sort of unpleasant sexual encounter occurred between Ollie and another man but nothing is ever explicitly said about the event and the event is not disclosed to the reader which I also appreciated as it was easier to stomach than reading about this sweet young man s abuse full out Adrian starts out as a bit of a callous cad He was meeting one lover only to instead encounter Ollie and had no problem with dismissing his previous lover in favor of a prettier one His original intentions toward Ollie were to employ him and seduce him if he was able but he realizes he cares for this wounded fellow too much to push him or influence him in any way which might remind him of his prior bad treatment I loved seeing Adrian growing irritable then morose as he realized he might have fallen in love with someone he can t bear to feel as if he s bought or tricked through seduction into his bed Hollis Shiloh does a fabulous job giving these two fellows an opportunity to grow to care for one another before becoming physical there aren t any explicit scenes of a sexual nature in the piece which puts this one on the low heat setting for me I could believe they had an attraction without the explicit scenes but I admit I don t usually read sweet romance as I tend to favor grittier storylines I d give Adrian s Librarian a solid four stars for having wonderful memorable characters a steady pace a reasonable plot and a guaranteed Happy Ever After I d recommend it to anyone who enjoys historical romance sweetclean romance or who wants a uick read to make their day brighter

First thing to note before reading this one is that it is a Dreamspinner Press A Timeless Dreams title Stories published under this label include historical period stories with a modern sensibility glossing over or completely ignoring the political climate and the historical stigma of gay relationships at the timeIf that is going to bug you this story is not for you Anyway Adrian s Librarian is the story of Adrian a wealthy player and Oliver the loneliest boy in the worldThere is a lot of crying Regency speak that isn t a lot of angst that isn t all that angsty if only because we don t get any real details and a story line that plows straight through with no distraction from the main plotBut none of those things are necessarily bad It is really sweet It is a stress free read which can be nice And even as we don t get enough detail on Oliver I found myself really liking him and wishing I could know about him The premise is fabulous and I think if you can separate what you thought this SHOULD be and read it for what it is it s kind of adorableNovella length can be tricky and while Hollis Shiloh may have written a great deal in the last few years this appears to be one of hisher first I ll certainly try another
