We're Bonnie Dee and Summer Devon and we write books together

Summer Devon and Bonnie Dee have co-written over a dozen books. Their historical novels often feature cross class romances which give the protagonists even greater hurtles to overcome than being gay men in dangerous times. Summer is the alter ego of author, Kate Rothwell, who writes gaslight historicals. Bonnie is interested in flawed, often damaged, people who find happiness together. These writers met by chance online and have had a fabulous time passing stories back and forth, creating characters and situations in what might be the world's longest party game.

Mending him is available today! 


Let's take a look....

 This is a great historical romance, written in the language of the times, adding credibility and authenticity to the plot. It's well-written, with interesting characters, and a few unexpected plot changes, which kept my interest. I recommend it to everyone who enjoys a historical romance, passionate men, and true love overcoming almost impossible obstacles. Thanks, Bonnie and Summer, for the highly entertaining story.
--rainbow reviews

Bonnie Dee and Summer Devon have written an enjoyable, frothy historical romance that manages to balance the darker emotional conflicts with the relief of sexy times and witty hero-to-hero moments.  The interplay of the romance allows for characters that seek maturity, and watching the characters find excitement in each other throughout the book is worth the angsty parts.  Mending Him was like dark chocolate: sweet enough to be a dessert, and bitter enough to do the flavors justice.
--heroes and heartbreakers

 This was a very sweet story.  Not the sappy, disgustingly sweet that I hate, but the adorable, happy romance that put a huge smile on my face.  Both characters are easily likable and their friendship and attraction to each other is very believable.  Two lost souls coming together over disability and recovery.  Don’t get me wrong, Robbie and Charles are “nothing” alike, but the men they become are totally in sync.

I am a big fan of Bonnie Dee and Summer Devon’s historicals and Mending Him was another really delightful story.  Robbie and Charles are such an interesting match and I loved the way things develop between them.

This story is a sweet, tender love story that made my heart smile while I read it....Overall, this was a really wonderful story.  I’m not a fan of historical stories, however, I will say that this book was so sweet and wonderful that I fell in love with it.  This book was such a great story and I really fell into the story and the love affair between the Robbie and Charles.  So, sit back and enjoy watching two young men fall in love with each other.

Bonnie Dee and Summer Devon’s “Mending Him” Is A Pitch Perfect Historical Romance

I’ve read a good number of Devon and Dee’s books, and it’s quite safe to say that Mending Him, as far as I’m concerned, is their best offering yet.
--novel approach

Bonnie Dee and Summer Devon’s works have become some of my favorite entries when it comes to M/M historical romance. And while The Gentleman and the Rogue is still my most favorite coming from them, this latest “Mending Him” is definitely one that I cherish as well.
If I could describe the story, I would use  words like “sweet” and “lovely” — because that was what it felt for me.
--boys in our books

I love the historical novels Bonnie Dee and Summer Devon create, I’ve not yet read one that I didn’t like. They are always absorbing and fascinating, with interesting plots and happy end-ings. Mending Him is written from various POV’s and as much as I liked Robbie Charles was my favorite, he was a perfect example of a bad thing changing someone for the better. ...I loved Mending Him and recommend it to anyone who loves historical stories with wounded heroes that need lots of tender care.
--prism reviews

A few reviewers have wondered what was going on with poor Charles who suffered with a mysterious illness that came and went.

It remained unnamed in the story because it wasn’t recognized until decades after Mending Him took place. Sufferers were often accused of hysteria because they improved without any sort of outside treatment.

Did you guess?

The answer:
Guillain-Barre syndrome was named after the French physicians Georges Guillain and Jean Alexandre Barré, who described it in 1916.

GBS is a rare disorder in which your body’s immune system attacks your nerves. Weakness and tingling in your extremities are usually the first symptoms. These sensations can quickly spread, eventually paralyzing your whole body. patients usually reach the point of greatest weakness or paralysis days or weeks after the first symptoms occur. Symptoms then stabilize at this level for a period of days, weeks, or, sometimes, months. The recovery period may be as little as a few weeks or as long as a few years. About 30 percent of those with Guillain-BarrĂ© still have a residual weakness after 3 years. About 3 percent may suffer a relapse of muscle weakness and tingling sensations many years after the initial attack. There is still no cure today.
