“#3. The Bastard (The Baddest Boys in History #1) by Inez Kelley: You may have noticed a pattern of exceptionally smart reads on this list. Kelley’s take on history is very special. I had the pleasure of talking about the making of this book/series with her and after she shared the depth and length of time spent researching this book, I knew I’d found something special. If you need to save the world from evil and could pick anyone from the past to assist you, who would you select? Good guys and awesome warriors might be a good start but if you’re fighting true evil, perhaps a bad guy’s point of view will serve you better? Nary a vampire or shifter in sight, Kelley gives us real life historical figures whose stories may not have been all that we read in the history books. The Bastard is the first book in the series and frankly, I am chomping at the bit for more. A considerable amount of world building takes place and never once do you find the track of the story out of focus. From raiding Vikings to biblical characters, hell, even Caligula has a part in this tale – Kelley’s take on history is precise and her storytelling is impeccable. The love story, romance and straight up sexy times will leave you in a puddle of swoon.”
