About the Author
Somewhere in a small town in up-state New York are a librarian and a second grade teacher to whom I owe my life. That might be a touch dramatic, but it’s nevertheless one hundred percent true. Because they taught me the joy of reading, of escaping into worlds crafted of words. Have you ever been nine years old and sure of nothing so much as that you don’t belong? Looked at the world from behind glasses, and wondered why you don’t fit? Then turn the page and see… there you are, running from Injun Joe in a dark graveyard; there you are fencing with Athos; there you are…beneath the deep blue sea- marveling at exotic creatures with Captain Nemo. I found myself between the pages of books, and that is why I write now, it’s why I taught English and literature for so many years, and it’s why my house contains more pounds of books than furniture. If I’d had my way, I’d have been a fencer…or a starship captain, or a lawyer, or a detective solving crimes. But instead, I am a writer, and that’s the best thing in the world to be if you ask me, because as a writer, I can be all those things and more. If I hadn’t learned to value the stories between the pages, who knows what would have happened? Certainly not college…teaching…or writing.

: I love this cover! I can visualize these men avidly. Gideon prefers men, one man in particular but he is afraid of getting caught. He does everything in his power to avoid being alone with Gareth, but Gareth is persistent. Gareth isn’t as shy about his feelings as Gideon. He dresses to the hilt even wears face paint. He assure Gideon they could be friends by day and lover by night but Gareth doesn’t buy it. Over a wager at cards. Gareth plays his hand, but will it end in a battle of swords or hearts? This is M/M regency at its finest. Lee Brazil has a way with words, emotions and some sensuous and steamy mansex. If you like regency romance, a battle of wits, words and tongues, suspense steamy hot mansex and gay romance at all you will love this.
