Home Is The Sailorby Lee Rowan
But this is no
The fourth book in the Royal Navy series, Home Is the Sailor is set immediately following Eye of the Storm. After an unprovoked attack during peacetime-was it revenge for their abduction of one of Bonaparte's top military scientists?-Commander William Marshall and his lover, David Archer, are sent into hiding at David's ancestral home in Devon.
But this is no peaceful shore leave. With the best intentions in the world, Will has discovered that his fear of losing Davy is still stronger than his desire to keep Davy beside him on the quarterdeck. And Lieutenant Archer is having problems of his own-the family that seemed so rock-solid, if distant, is staggering under the loss of its eldest son and heir. Was it an accident... or murder? And if the latter, how will he ever prove it to an autocratic father who still sees him as the inept youngest son? Out of their element, Davy and Will are thrust into the role of sleuths while trying to determine what sort of future, if any, they may have together.
Fans of The Royal Navy series will be delighted with this latest entry, a truly intriguing mystery/adventure.
"From its nautical opening straight through to its startling climax and satisfying conclusion, Home Is The Sailor is a taut, well paced read. Engaged from the first paragraphs, I burned through it in a day. Another excellent book from Lee Rowan!" -Donald Hardy, author of Lovers' Knot

Book three in the Royal Navy Series finds our heroes, Will Marshall and David Archer, on retreat to escape the enmity of Bonaparte. Deciding to go to Davy’s home, they are surprised to find that Davy’s older brother and the heir has died under circumstances that David considers suspicious. The new heir is totally unsuited and will cause only problems for the family. But Davy cannot convince his father much less Will that there is more to the accident than appears. Soon the two are investigating the changes to find the truth. Meanwhile Will still cannot reconcile having Davy by his side an also keeping him out of danger. Changes are coming for both men. Will and Davy will always have a special place in my heart. These two belong together, but must be careful because their love is not condoned under the law. They are brave, capable and competent young men. They have each other’s backs both professionally and personally. Will is having problems handling Davy in any further danger while Davy is having family problems. Can they resolve these issues? Only in the pages of the book will you find out. Read it and enjoy it. I know I did.
I'd rate this a 4.5 After a harrowing escape at sea, Will and Davy are required to spend time on shore with Davy's family. Murders are occuring, even an attempt on the naval heroes themselves, and they have to find the culprit. There is a unique solution to the men's decision to remain together, even at the risk of a death sentence if they are caught.
