5.0 out of 5 stars Wealth, Riches and Breeches
This book is simply great! Like most extraordinarily good things in life, it has many facets. It is a true period Romance, peppered with details of horses' rumps, oil lamps and the clatter of hooves on the cobbles of a murky London.

3.0 out of 5 stars Too short
The book was far to short and needed longer storyline. What there was, was well written but it needed fleshing out.

This book is simply great! Like most extraordinarily good things in life, it has many facets. It is a true period Romance, peppered with details of horses' rumps, oil lamps and the clatter of hooves on the cobbles of a murky London. You can smell the wood smoke and hear the cries of coster-mongers with their barrows. It is a tale of social class, of the sufferings of the Napoleonic war, the heroism of the soldier and un-cried tears of the man. It is a tale of conflict between the beauty of love and the strictures of convention that would deny passion to a gentlemen of status. At the very edge of despair, an aristocrat falls into the company of an irrepressible cockney rogue. At last he finds the true love which makes him whole. But - who is truly the master in this unapologetic tale of M on M love and discovery? The story explores the complexities of society and opportunity in a way that would not be out of place today. Two elements are at the heart of the book. Firstly, the inner conflict of one man and, secondly, the broad conflict within all men in the face of evil. The monstrous Dr Schivvers is a vile enemy. A noble Baronet and his pragmatic lover from the gutter hunt down a maiden in distress. A debt of promise and honour is paid in an explosion of romantic love that left me wanting only one thing - a sequel.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hot period romance, 14 May 2013
Historical period romantic romp with a noble quest to rescue a young orphaned girl from an evil surgeon. Cheeky loveable 'cockney sparrow' Jem gives his aristocratic master Captain/Sir Alan Watleigh new reason to live. Some hot m/m action interspersed with really romantic and tender love scenes as the relationship between the two characters develops. Lots of period detail and lots of sex. Great read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful!, 5 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What a great story! Two loveable characters: Jem, the rogue off the streets and Alan who picks hiim up for one night. Like "Seducing Stephen", this story allows us to see the gradual development of the relationship between the two men. In places the writing is a little careless; I was unsure of who was speaking etc at times, but the actual story is so well crafted and thrilling, that I could not bring myself to only award four stars. Excellent writing and not just a tale of two lovers finding happiness.
