Blurb: As far as Lord Duncan Aldham is concerned. War is a thing which affects other people. He’s quite content to sit in the ancestral pile, ride his horses, and defend himself against his mother’s attempts to marry him off. So when Duncan meets the Manor’s new stable hand he’s thoroughly unprepared for the desire which the man ignites within him.
William Fossett is handsome, muscular, and utterly forbidden. A kind and gentle soul, William is a pacifist in a country which is about to force every man to test the strength of their convictions.
Confused by his yearning for Fossett, Duncan will soon be forced to work out whether he dare act upon this illicit attraction to another man – and to a Commoner, no less.
But Fossett has bigger problems: the Military Service Act has been passed into law, and even absolutists are at risk of conscription…

Review: I’m not really into historicals unless there i something else mixed in it. That being said this was a fast paced book with a slow build up on the romance. It takes place in Victorian times and was well detailed.
Basically this story was about forbidden love in a time of war and having to hide it. Lord Duncan Aldham has no use for women who simply do his bidding without hesitation. He is confused yet fascinated by the new stable hand William Fossett.
It was o.k. read.
