Mending him is available today!
REVIEWS ARE POSITIVE! (Phew!)
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
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.

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 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.
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?
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-Barré 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
