A-Hunting We Will Go by Kate Roman

The Honourable Philip Huntingdon is due to inherit a comfortable country estate, and what should have been a comfortable fortune. But Philip's dissolute guardian has squandered the inheritance, and is now determined Philip must marry a rich heiress as soon as possible. Philip's own preference runs instead to his boyhood friend Fergus, a groom on the estate. When a foxhunting accident brings things to a head Philip must decide: his home, and the life he was born to, or an unknown future with the man he loves?

Reviewer: PurpleRose
This short historical story was okay but I would have liked it to have been longer and started years before we are introduced to the main characters. It felt like we only got to read the last chapter of a full length story. I also thought the author should have let us know what happened to Sir John, which I hoped would be a slow painful death for the way he treated Philip for so many years and wasted all of his inheritance!

I would have also liked to have know more about Philip's love interest Fergus. The only thing we know about him is they have been in a relationship for sometime and have known each other their entire lives. Fergus was only really in 2 scenes in the book and they were both sex scenes. However, despite these faults, this was a cute story with a nice happily ever after ending. I'm giving A-Hunting We Will Go 3 stars.
