STORY: A scoundrel who lives in the shadows
Jack Turner grew up in the darkness of London’s slums, born into a life of crime and willing to do anything to keep his belly full and his siblings safe. Now he uses the tricks and schemes of the underworld to help those who need the kind of assistance only a scoundrel can provide. His distrust of the nobility runs deep and his services do not extend to the gorgeous high-born soldier who personifies everything Jack will never be.
A soldier untarnished by vice
After the chaos of war, Oliver Rivington craves the safe predictability of a gentleman’s life-one that doesn’t include sparring with a ne’er-do-well who flouts the law at every turn. But Jack tempts Oliver like no other man has before. Soon his yearning for the unapologetic criminal is only matched by Jack’s pleasure in watching his genteel polish crumble every time they’re together.
Two men only meant for each other
REVIEW: What is one to do when one accidently downloads an M/M romance?! Well, one must at least try to read it, and so I did. And let me tell you, it was extremely well written considering it was a debut, and immensely enjoyable.
Both characters were very likable and relatable to the times in which the story was set. My heart went out to both as they try to live in a world that shuns homosexuals.
I truly was pleasantly surprised by the prose, plot and pace. All were in perfect sync and the story was very easy to read and like. I’d like to encourage all my M/F romance readers to give it a try. I promise you’ll like it as much as you do all the other romance tropes and genres.
This story had mystery and intrigue, but its romance was the heart of it and I highly recommend it.
