I loved ‘The Wrong Kind of Angel’ - a suspenseful and touching story about Harry, a young man forced into prostitution in the England of 1817, and his rescue by Charles, a former soldier in the Napoleonic wars. And while you don’t need to have read that novel to enjoy ‘Trapped’, I think it would greatly enhance your experience if you did. Sam is one of Harry’s friends, still suffers under the cruel hands of the brothel owners, and knows he has to find someone to rescue him if he wants to survive ...more

I don’t know why I continue to be surprised when Historical Romance meets or exceeds my expectations. Maybe I need to work harder to adjust my mindset.

And WHY have I never read a book by Ruby Moone before?

Trapped is an apt title, because WOWZA.

The blurb states that this is a companion piece to The Wrong Kind of Angel. Having not read that, I can definitively say that this book can be read as a standalone. The pre

I’m always reluctant to read an M/M historical romance, simply because I cannot stand the fact that any time period before modern ones they have to hide who they are—not from fear of being ostracized by other people (though that is always a possibility, then and now), but due to the laws that could find a character swinging from the end of a rope. But sometimes my curiosity is piqued by a synopsis for a story in this genre, and I wind up quite pleasantly surprised at the wonderful story I discov ...more

Very nice book, with just the right touch of angst (for me that means not very much) and a satisfying ending.

Book & Author: Trapped by Ruby Moone
Rating: 4.25 Stars

Another historical hits it out of the park!

I loved these two guys and how they were opposites in so many ways in a time that already made being together difficult. Sam was a prostitute that worked in a brothel run by a cruel man. Tristan is an Earl and well to do. Sam was kicked out by his father for being caught with a boy and many bad decisions are made landing him in a dangerous situation. Sam comes from a wealthy family, although not

A Joyfully Jay review.

3.25 stars

Trapped was a quick read with lots of tender moments, but a somewhat uneven storyline. Tristan and Sam are both given some definition, though neither feels fully developed. There is enough between them to establish a convincing romance, albeit one that is occasionally prone to moments of melodrama. Tristan’s cousin Alfie, also serves as a nice intermediary and I wouldn’t be shocked to see him get a book of his own. There is a serious and significant undertone to

Radically different historical romance

I have read historical romance periodically for decades,
beginning with Georgette Heyer. This one is probably as far apart from those as it is possible to be. It is also by far my favorite one. It begins with two men who meet in a gay brothel, and ends with them, some of their family, friends, and a few orphan children forming a large, loving family. It is a truly great read that has me anxious to discover what other stories this author has written. Read it.

(This review is for all four titles in Regency Rogues Box Set, in which this tale appears)

A Bounty of Rogues & Lovers

This anthology strings together two short stories and two novellas, the latter two interrelated as to plot and characters. You can buy them separately, but I thoroughly enjoyed working my way through this anthology of 19th Century England because all four books featured similar MC's: A member of the gentry (or aristocracy) and a commoner meet accidently and fall in love despit

I had to laugh when I really took a good look at this book. When I first glanced at it and the blurb I didn't realize it went with The Wrong Kind of Angel. Which I read and reviewed not too long ago. I remember really enjoying the book and hoping that maybe another story would be told to get those people out of Dante's place. And ta da! I got my wish! Sam gets his story this time.

If you've read the first one then you know Dante and his cronies and his establishment are just horrid. It's supposed

I really enjoyed this book! After reading The Wrong Kind Of Angel I was keen to step back into this world, and I wasn't disappointed. The characters were a great mix and well fleshed out, and the story compelling. A great read.

I liked this story. It tells the horrible truths of humans, and how far they will go I'm life. It was a well written book, with a good story line.

A beautifully written companion book to The Wrong Kind of Angel. This expands on that world with new characters and then weaves everything together. Ruby is a skillful author who knows how to tell a good story.
May 10, 2017 rated it really liked it
Only after starting this, I realized it was the second part of "A wrong kind of Angel" which I read before and really liked. The story here is not too much different. Sam works in a brothel and when Tristan an obviously rich and at the same time very attractive client returns several times to see him, he sees a chance to escape with Tristan's help.
However, at the end, Tristan finds out that the reason wasn`t really love as Sam told him, but rather his money that had Sam seek his help.
Of course,
I've read a few books by this author now and I've enjoyed each one. Her characters are sympathetic and her "voice" works for me. I would definitely recommend her books for fans of m/m historical romance.
I stumbled across this while searching for something to read late at night on Amazon. I hadn't heard of Ruby Moone before but Trapped appeared to get good reviews on both Amazon and Goodreads, so I leaped and brought it! Such a rebel I know.

Trapped was surprisingly darker than I initially thought it would be, and I think people need to know that it contains mentions of children forced in prostitution so I'm putting right at the start of my review. If that is something you don't want to have in

lifestyle, quickly escalates into something more. He’s been meeting the younger man for awhile now, but never understood what drove the aristocrat to seek out men of Sam’s particular skill set. They reveal their true names and hearts early, but how much of it is real, and how much is a charade to have a comfortable existence? Secondary characters Alfie (Tristan’s cousin) and Gareth (Sam’s fellow brothel boy) are an additional delight, and the four have their work cut out for them when a fun-fill ...more

My name is Ruby Moone and I love books. All kinds of books. My weakness is for romance, and that can be any kind, but I am particularly fond of historical and paranormal. I decided to write gay romance after reading some fantastic books and falling in love with the genre, so am really thrilled to have my work published here. The day job takes up a lot of my time, but every other spare mom
