The Gentlemans Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi LeeHenry “Monty” Montague was born and bred to be a gentleman, but he was never one to be tamed. The finest boarding schools in England and the constant disapproval of his father haven’t been able to curb any of his roguish passions—not for gambling halls, late nights spent with a bottle of spirits, or waking up in the arms of women or men.
But as Monty embarks on his Grand Tour of Europe, his quest for a life filled with pleasure and vice is in danger of coming to an end. Not only does his father expect him to take over the family’s estate upon his return, but Monty is also nursing an impossible crush on his best friend and traveling companion, Percy.
Still it isn’t in Monty’s nature to give up. Even with his younger sister, Felicity, in tow, he vows to make this yearlong escapade one last hedonistic hurrah and flirt with Percy from Paris to Rome. But when one of Monty’s reckless decisions turns their trip abroad into a harrowing manhunt that spans across Europe, it calls into question everything he knows, including his relationship with the boy he adores.

Fresh off an accidentally whirlwind tour of Europe that she spent evading highwaymen and pirates with her brother Monty, Felicity has returned to England with one goal in mind—to enroll in medical school.

The Book Carousel is an in-blog reading game where we secretly recommended a book to one co-blogger, then we each review the book we get. My thanks to the recommender Jenia , who is shrouded in mystery Jenia , whose identity will forever remain a puzzle it was Jenia ; it was the perfect book for me. But his father saddles him with a glorified babysitter and a threat: his heir should straighten up or else not bother coming back home. Monty endures a sedate visit to Paris, but a mishap during a ball in Versailles is the first step towards a dangerous adventure, involving highwaymen, pirates, alchemical secrets and a revised version of his Grand Tour he never anticipated. But his actions are not a normal part of him sowing his wild oats, and rather a way for him to escape his demons.
