Hamilton's Battalion: A Trio of Romances based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Wow. Erotic romance, m/f, m/m, f/f, marginalized people, and all tied together to Alexander Hamilton and the battle of Yorktowne. In Promised Land, Rachel, now dressed as a man, and serving as a damn fine soldier, meets a former love. Will he betray her secret? Will she betray his? I really fell in love with both these characters, AND found it was a very interesting look at what it might have been like to serve in the Continental Army while Jewish. How it might have affected religious observances, diet, and more. In The Pursuit of, we meet two men who are supposed to be bitter enemies. White, black, redcoat, Revolutionary... and watch them become, not just buddies, but lovers in every sense of the word. And it's funny and light and there is CHEESE. Not good cheese, mind you, but still. “I have too many thoughts, all stampeding their way to the forefront of my mind,” Henry explained. “Eventually, all but one will be trampled to death in the crush, and I shall blurt it out in triumph.” In That Could Be Enough, two African-American freedwomen meet over Eliza Hamilton's project of collecting her late husband's legacy stories. Sparks fly, but what next? I am very glad nobody is selling Hamilton! cereal, because I would probably buy a box. However, I really loved this set of stories, and how each author tied a love story into the Hamilton legend, AND portrayed those stories with sensitivity, tenderness, and HEAT. And doing the research to make the historical details, from clothing to street traffic to the very real challenges of being Jewish, gay, and lesbian, in an era not particularly friendly to any of any of "those people." Loved the historical research notes at the end of the set. Recommend to anyone who enjoys same-sex historical romance - or is willing to sample it.
