Blurb: Alec, Earl of Whittlesey, lives a dull and reclusive existence, rarely mingling with society and, to his mother’s regret, refusing to marry. But his mother and society do not know he harbors a secret: a kind of madness that is driving him to deadly despair.
When Alec meets the commoner Morgan Villenie, he finds the man’s cheer and wit hard to resist, despite his own dark moods. Alec warms to Villenie, but Villenie has secrets of his own. If these two men are ever truly to be together, they must trust each other enough to reveal those secrets—even if they both believe the truth could tear them apart.
Review: Well, I got to say that I am not normally one that reads historical books, whether fiction or nonfiction. This story was pretty good, well told, and great story line. I, however, did have a hard time following it, but in the end, I enjoyed the story.
Alec is driving his mother crazy with the not wanting to marry, however it is basically because he is in the closet. He is from a very wealthy and influential family, deciding to no longer mingle with those of his station in life. That is until he meets Morgan, a commoner who has secrets of his own. Morgan is funny and is cheerful even when he is angry and judgmental. They hit it off and try to learn more about each other, even if it could destroy them both. Both hot and sexy characters with different types of personalities, they come together in a time that it is extremely dangerous to be gay.
The sex is a mixture of tenderness and passionate. It took me longer to follow this story, keeping my attention, but once I started to understand the story, it was pretty good.
