1642, England: David Caverly’s strict father has brought home the quiet, puritanical Jonathan Graie to help his dreamer of a son work the family forge. With war brewing in Parliament, the demand for metal work increases as armies are raised.

The fair David is drawn to his father’s new apprentice.

“Set during the Royalist/Roundhead conflict of the mid-1600s, this story exudes historical detail and will please historical fans.”
Library Journal
Blacksmith's son David Caverly is taken with his father's new apprentice, Jonathan Graie, but it takes Tobias, an army soldier separated from his troop during the early days of the English Civil War, to make David understand the nature of his attraction. Jonathan also feels for David. For a brief while, the young men are happy until they are forced apart by misunderstanding. Each enters the conflict, and each finds dangers and others of their kind. David becomes a hardened soldier and has a positive relationship with Tobias, but Jonathan becomes ensnared by Michael, who uses his position as a witch hunter to torture and kill. Period detail rounds out this tale of star-crossed lovers. Erastes is one of the best known M/M authors in the UK. — "Bodice Rippers Without the Bodice", Booksmack!, 12/16/10.
