Blurb: Timon uncovers a world he never dreamed existed when his comfortable life is turned upside down after rescuing a young slave destined to be a rich man’s toy.

Timon promises the slave, Agapito, that he will return the young man to his home and family. However, fulfilling that promise is jeopardized when his own sister’s fiancé, the black hearted Sir Jocelyn, decides not only to reclaim the slave destined to be his, but to claim them both as his own.

Review: Timon is determined to keep his word to Agapito and get him home after buying him from a pirate to save him from Sir Jocelyn, even if it means putting himself in danger. Agapito falls in love with his rescuer and is determined to rescue Timon in return when Sir Jocelyn sets his sights on Timon as well.

This is a sweet love story that leaves you with a warm smile on your face as you read about these two young men who fall in love with each other and come out the victors in a surprising twist. Timon is a very big-hearted man who is willing to overlook his sister’s faults although you want to shake him and tell him his sister is nothing but a self-centered b***h who would sell him for a pretty bauble if she could.   Agapito is a sweet young man who keeps a secret to the last and you really do cheer them both on as they fall in love.

The sex scenes are truly making love and are as explicit as they are hot, sweet and heartfelt, the storyline is solid with no holes in it and everything is tied up nicely by the end and Sir Jocelyn is punished in a way that for him must be torture (although you do wish both Agapito and Timon weren’t so nice). It was also nice that both Captain Ghislain and Leighton were given protection as well. The characters drew you into the story and had you hoping for a happy ending not just for the two MC’s but their supporting characters as well.

So I have to recommend this to everyone as it’s a sweet romantic love story that is best read with a cup of tea and a box of chocolates and it will leave you with a warm glow, as well as a wish for a story for Captain Ghislain and Leighton.

    1. I hate to say this but the best I have been able to figure out is anywhere between 1760 and 1830 but I also have to say that some licence must be given as you also have a kingdom that welcomes same sex marriages at that time as well.

      1. P.S. 1760 – 1830 covers King George III and his son King George IV and was a time when pirates were most prolific.
        Although King George I & King George II reigned from 1714 – 1760 I think the book was set slightly later than 1760.

  1. I went back to the text and tried to figure it out. The book is set on an unnamed island in the Caribbean during the reign of King George. Unfortunately, my English history is not strong enough to narrow that down further, and I’m pretty sure there was more than one King George.
