The Queer Principles of Kit Webb

HarperAudio. Jun. 2021. 9:12 hrs. ISBN 9780063026230. $26.99. HISTORICAL ROMANCE
Reformed highwayman Kit Webb has given up on a life of crime and now dedicates himself to the staid life of a coffee shop proprietor. When Lord Percy Holland walks into his establishment and tries to hire him for one last job, Kit is intrigued but refuses to help. However, Percy is persistent, convinced that only the legendary Kit can help him outwit the blackmailer who threatens his place in society. Luckily, Kit gets bored with his new life and reluctantly decides to help Percy train, despite his antipathy towards the young lord and all the members of the privileged class. A slow-burn romance follows, with a lot of steamy and tender moments. Although the plot is sluggish in the first half, and the heist storyline gets somewhat tangled, the novel makes up for it with the fantastic character development, Sebastian’s (The Soldier’s Scoundrel) signature social commentary, and a romance filled with radiant sexual chemistry and true love. Narrator Joel Leslie does a superb job of voicing both gruff Kit and aristocratic Percy.
VERDICT Recommended for fans of inclusive narratives, historical romances (especially ones set in Georgian London), the friends-to-lovers trope, and the author’s other works.
