Blurb: The Yule festival of Twelfth Night is a time when servants are the masters and vice versa, and tension and humor fill the air. Dan and his partner, Taj, have busy lives even without their duties as members of the Society for Creative Anachronism. When Taj is selected to coordinate the holiday activities and assigned the title Lord of Misrule, it encroaches on their time as a couple—until they negotiate their way to a happy holiday.
Review: Taj and Dan are members of the Society of Creative Anachronism. They do medieval reenactments. It keeps them very busy along with their hectic work schedules. Twelfth Night is a time when servants are the masters and vice versa. They each have a surprise for the other planned for this night.
I’m going to have to say that this one lost me. It started out with a battle scene like its medieval and the two men are going at it like bunnies all the time. I am sure back then they wouldn’t be so open. Then it all of a sudden changes names and is present time. Then you find out it’s a society thing they do together. I just stayed lost and a bit confused. I had to look up lots of words (thank goodness for kindle fires dictionary). I had to reread a lot to see if I missed something’s. However, the story between Dan and Taj is very sweet and hot. I think it would have been a great story without the other part or if there was a bit more explanation or a smoother transition between the two stories. All in all I liked the story.
I recommend this to anyone that likes, Lords and Ladies, Medieval reenactments, and hot mansex.
