Dr. Llewellyn Lewis leads a double life, as both an awkward but distinguished history professor and the more flamboyant Ramon Rondell, infamous writer of sensational historical theories. It's Ramon who first sets eyes on a gorgeous young man dancing in a club, but Llewellyn who meets teaching assistant Blaise Arthur formally at an event held for wealthy socialite Anne de Vere, descendant of Edward de Vere, seventeenth Earl of Oxford-who some believe was the real Shakespeare. Anne wants Llewellyn to prove that claim, even though many have tried and failed. And she's willing to offer a hefty donation to the university if he succeeds.

It also means a chance for Llewellyn to get to know Blaise much better.

Not everyone thinks Llewellyn should take the case-or the money. Between feuding siblings, rival patrons, jealous colleagues, and greedy administrators, almost anyone could be trying to thwart his work... and one of them is willing to kill to do it.

When Anne de Vere turns up dead, the police believe Blaise is the murderer. Only the shy, stuttering professor who has won his heart can prove otherwise...

Llewellyn Lewis is a shy stuttering historical researcher by day and a fluently speaking totally different man named Ramon by night. When he’s at a gay bar as Ramon he sees the most beautiful man ever.
When he meets him again as Llewellyn he can’t believe Blaise assists him in the research case of finding out who Shakespeare was. It’s heavy paid research and it looks like there are some people who are sabotaging it.
Blaise uses all his charms on Llewellyn and both men have affectionate feelings... 
Llewellyn is an insecure man and a bit suspicious about Blaise's intentions.

There is a murder and when Blaise is a suspect Llewellyn uses his skills to prove who is the murderer.

I always love it when a story can surprise me, this one did. So different than I expected, more a mystery than a love story, the mystery part is ingenious and the love part intense.
It was intriguing and I found the plot wonderfully done. 
The writing is appealing and with a great flow. The environments were original, the main characters were well developed, just like the whole story!
