Overview

Lad from the streets meets lord of the manor. Both men�s lives will be changed forever.

When Sir Alan Watleigh goes searching for sex, he never imagines the street rat he brings home for one last bit of pleasure in his darkest hour will be the man who hauls him back from the edge of the grave. Despite his harsh life in the slums of London, Jem is a bright, cheerful young man. He�s also witty, irreverent, glib, and makes Alan laugh--a rare occasion since war time trauma and the death of his family have made the man a ghost of his former self.

A single night of meaningless sex turns into an offer of permanent employment. Jem acts as Alan�s valet, but offers him so much more than polished boots and starched cravats. Just as the men are adjusting to their new living arrangement, news about a former soldier under his command sends Sir Watleigh and Jem on the road to save a child in danger.

The journey brings them closer together as they travel from lust toward love. They rescue the girl from the clutches of an insane surgeon, who is as interested in experimenting on the vulnerable human spirit as he is on physical bodies. Alan realizes his love for Jem when he nearly loses him, but is Alan�s love strong enough to risk society discovering the truth about him? And is he strong enough to finally accept his sexual identity?

Editorial Reviews

You Gotta Read Reviews - Patchcat reviewer
You Gotta Read--I don�t give this rating often. But this book? Totally deserves it. The world is well-built, the characters just about leap off the page, and the plot flows exceptionally well.
JERR - Lauria Chandonnay
Gold Star Rating One of those rare books that grabs you by the heart and doesn�t let go. Their love story was so realistically written that my heart ached for the pair what with all of the obstacles in their way. When I turned the last page it was with sorrow that I had to leave these people behind to return to reality.
Jessewave - Erastes reviewer
5 stars
What really impressed me is that the writers pack so much in just 158 pages. It�s a really compact, solid story with a lot going on: good servants, bad servants, loyalty to dead troops, riding lessons, a road trip� it�s amazing how much it contains.
Queer Magazine Online - Lena Grey
This is a lovely, romantic, passionate story written in an easy flowing, flowery style befitting the time period and reflecting the characters' personalities perfectly.
Rainbow Reviews - Jimbo reviewer
5 stars
To say I enjoyed every moment of this story is putting it mildly. The authors have to be congratulated in bringing to life some wonderfully drawn characters and vividly recalling a time in London's history with atmospheric authenticity. I loved every aspect of this story, and was truly sorry when I came to the last page ~ so I read it all again! Highly recommended
