    I Liked It

    James Lear writes another high energy novel of steamy man sex, complicated with the social struggles of an interracial male couple, and surrounded by the dangers of war set in the 1800s. I'm not a fan of books that take place during the civil war time period. This being the first one that I've read, I found it to be okay, different, yet expected. It's not a time period that I would want to look for in the future. James Lear writes a novel to equal his first, 'The Low Road'. Again, the main character is a young, spoiled, man coming of age, who discovers the fun of sex without realizing the dangers to him and his partners, as a result of his carefree and whoreish behavior. With the prospect of civil war inevitable, an educated and socially sophisticated black man will be embarrassingly reduced to turn into a whore at night just in order to survive, while his white, irresponsible, and unattainable love will endure and witness the hardships and horrors of the war as a medic on the battlefield. Once again James Lear tells an adventurous and creative story through his use of a familiar tool of letters and journal entries to his too late realized love that missed its opportunity. Will the lover's be fortunate to have a second opportunity in life to be together in the stained aftermath of the brother fighting against brother in the 'Hot Valley'?

    Erotic and Historic

    The book is very well written, the sex and love are well written and erotic, the exploits and challenges faced by the characters are interesting and sometimes frightening and the setting of the civil war is a part of our american past that is well told in this book.
