Book Description

When the Duke of Byworth's empty marriage is threatened by a fellow duke he is naturally aggrieved. Nathan cannot allow the potentially damaging contents of his wife's diary to reveal the depths of their estrangement because exposure of his secret dalliances with other men would taint his innocent children's lives. Not to mention end his life. So, without revealing his mission to his steward, Henry Stackpool, a man he trusts for everything else, Nathan undertakes to steal the diary back alone.

Former pickpocket and molly house whore, Henry Stackpool, works hard to keep his position as right hand to a moral man, the Duke of Byworth, but he fears his kind hearted employer is ill-equipped for a confrontation with his unstable opponent. Yet Henry cannot reveal his knowledge of the threat without exposing the secrets of his past or his keen interest in Byworth's safety. So when fate places Henry in harms way, he risks his hard won reputation to retrieve the diary. Yet he too is held captive, and when Byworth comes to his rescue his lies are revealed.

Can Byworth forgive him for his deception and will Henry keep the country life he's grown to love?

    5.0 out of 5 stars Almost an Equal by Heather Boyd 18 Dec. 2011
    By Elisa - Published on Amazon.com
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    It's very clear this author is used to write erotic historical romances, and I'd like to highlight the word "erotic", since in this case it weights a little more than the "historical" one. Nobleman Nathan has done his due to the dukedom, 2 sons and 1 daughter, and now he has no patience left for his demanding wife, a wife that, by the way, has already found a replacement for the role of bedmate. There is no love between Nathan and his wife, and from what I understand, never there was. Even if it's not detailed, I think their was an arranged marriage of some sort. Sure, to my opinion, Nathan could have found someone nicer to be the mother of his children, but then the children seem to not have taken from their mother.

    Lately a new addition to the household has helped with raising the kids: Henry, Nathan's steward, spends as many time as he can with the children, and they seem to care for him as much as they care for their father. Nathan is not against the idea, but he himself would like to have a deeper bond with the young man, only that Henry has never expressed any interest or given him any signs he would be willing. Aside from that, Henry's devotion to Nathan is exclusive, and when he learns about a possible threat to the man's good name, he is ready to risk his cover for him: Henry is a former whore and he escaped a molly house; the man who is blackmailing Nathan is the same man Henry was running away from; of course Henry's plot will not go as smoothly as he hoped and Nathan will have to help him. That is no surprising at all, what will be a nice surprise for the reader is the changing in powership that will happen between Nathan and Henry.

    At the beginning I found Henry to be a little too submissive, too weak; I was already thinking to tag this story as a "classical" breeches rippers, with the poor young man falling in love for the dashing aristocrat; but even if this is a breeches rippers, you will have a surprise on whom will have his breeches ripped. I think this is due to two major factor: Henry's bad past experience preventing him to fully trust another man, with his body but above all with his freedom, and Nathan's need for once to not be the one in command, his need to let it go, and exactly at the opposite of Henry, to be able to trust someone with his body and his freedom.

    This is book 1 in a series, and it's clear who will be the pair of book 2. What remained an open point is if maybe this is not a spin off of some other series by the same author, mainly since some of the supporting characters, having only a cameo role, gave me the idea to have a some sort of shared past with both Henry than Nathan, and so there was a little bit the feeling to be plunged in the middle of the action with little preparation. But in a way, it was no bad, since the reader was soon at the main course, without wasting much time with the appetizers.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Sweet & sexy 1 Sept. 2012
    By Beck - Published on Amazon.com
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    This is a nice little historical romp. It is very shallow tho' which is why I only awarded it 3 stars. I've bought the sequel already so I hope the continuation of the story allows for more character development. Although this one has been listed as BDSM I would have to say that it is extreme sugar-kink. There is some light spanking & a slightly over-bearing alpha male. Nothing too heavy at all. It's an easy read but it doesn't have a wow factor. Unless the sequel revs the story up, I'm unlikely to revisit the book.

    I like Heather Boyd's writing. It is sexy, entertaining and relaxing. I like reading sex stories, historical even better and even taboo sex as long as there is nothing offensive in it.

    It's well enough written but the warning comes too late. Rough brutal male on male sex. The story jumps and isn't the quality I expected from this author
