    If Alexis Hall ever decides to write a series about Ruben and Milord, I ll sing his praises non stop.Ruben is an aristocratic would be priest He believes that everyone has some good in them, no matter what sins they might have committed Milord is the crime boss of the underworld, and has very few regrets The two are thrown together when Milord is arrested, and Ruben is sent to convince Milord to repent before his execution The situation becomes complicated when it becomes clear that they re If Alexis Hall ever decides to write a series about Ruben and Milord, I ll sing his praises non stop.Ruben is an aristocratic would be priest He believes that everyone has some good in them, no matter what sins they might have committed Milord is the crime boss of the underworld, and has very few regrets The two are thrown together when Milord is arrested, and Ruben is sent to convince Milord to repent before his execution The situation becomes complicated when it becomes clear that they re attracted to each other.While I enjoyed Prosperity, I didn t love it However, Ruben and Milord definitely caught my attention, so I couldn t wait to get my hands on this short prequel It really delivers the goods Readers will get to see why exactly Ruben and Milord s relationship is so complicated, and what got them to the point that they were at in Prosperity.Both characters are complex, divided between what they want in their hearts, and how they believe they should feel about each other, given their specific circumstances There isn t much common ground for a godly aristocrat and an amoral criminal to build something together, but the two can t stop themselves from wantingThis is a thoroughly enjoyable read, which fans of Prosperity will love Though Shackles could be read as a stand alone, I think it s one of those prequels that are better appreciated when read after reading the book that was published firstARC provided through NetGalley

    Shackles is the story of Ruben and MilordThere isto a person than what they doThis is the story that made me want to re read Prosperity the most because I have underestimated Ruben greatly In Prosperity I saw him as this white knight trying to save everyone But there s so muchto Ruben In Shackles he is not the one physically chained, yet I felt he is trapped and his encounters with Milord set him free when he least expected He wanted to make him laugh Subdue him with ecst Shackles is the story of Ruben and MilordThere isto a person than what they doThis is the story that made me want to re read Prosperity the most because I have underestimated Ruben greatly In Prosperity I saw him as this white knight trying to save everyone But there s so muchto Ruben In Shackles he is not the one physically chained, yet I felt he is trapped and his encounters with Milord set him free when he least expected He wanted to make him laugh Subdue him with ecstasy Cover him with good things until his own goodness or lack of it didn t matter Of course, it wasn t biblical. Milord is, well, Milord and nothing can put him off balance like Ruben His refusal to give in to emotions of any kind is put through the test here and the end of the story is both surprising and typical Milord Also, Nell was brilliant.I call this story Alexis Hall s magic because when he writes about the desires of the heart, I find myself hoping that even the villain will find love

    This is the story of Ruben and Milord, and how they met Milord is captive, a man of vile reputation and fallen angel looks, whose one virtue seems to be that he never lies about who and what he is Ruben is the handsome, earnest and compassionate clergyman tasked with convincing Milord that it is better to repent and hang than be burned alive Unfortunately Milord is not capable of repentance, or even faking it And Ruben is inexorably drawn to this strange, adamant, fragile, vicious, brilliant This is the story of Ruben and Milord, and how they met Milord is captive, a man of vile reputation and fallen angel looks, whose one virtue seems to be that he never lies about who and what he is Ruben is the handsome, earnest and compassionate clergyman tasked with convincing Milord that it is better to repent and hang than be burned alive Unfortunately Milord is not capable of repentance, or even faking it And Ruben is inexorably drawn to this strange, adamant, fragile, vicious, brilliant manThis is almost the story I was hungering for after Prosperity Or rather, it s a piece of that story, a beginning, a gorgeous, entrancing, damnably short start It deserves the five stars but this will only whet your appetite for

    I finished Prosperity and was thrilled to haveof the characters I loved Especially Milord, and I thought I could not fall for him anyI only wish this was longer Alexis has a way of writing complex characters with the most unusual unexpected relationships but makes perfect sense.

  9. Irina says:

    I love Ruben and Milord They re the characters I cared most about from the first book and I couldn t wait to read their story Unfortunately, being so short, this sequel had only made me long forThese two deserve a full length novel, in my opinion.
