Street hustler Jody plays any role that will win the confidence of a mark. His sights are set on Lord Cyril Belmont, a potential ticket to financial freedom that could change Jody’s life. With a fake investment scheme in mind and larceny in his heart, he sets a snare for the wealthy gentleman.

Cyril Belmont may have a title but he’s as broke as a china plate and on the verge of selling his dilapidated country estate to start a new life in America. When his quiet, solitary life is invaded by a bright, passionate man who sets his head spinning, Cyril is ready to share whatever he has with the electrifying stranger—including the deepest recesses of his heart.

As Jody begins to cultivate inexplicable feelings for the sweet, gentle man who raises rare orchids, he intends to end his seduction and slink back to the ghetto. But then his cover is blown and the budding romance is crushed.

It takes an ocean voyage and several unexpected twists of fate to bring two strangers to a true understanding of each other and the very real bond they share.

I love me some well-written historical romance. When the ambiance feels and is put down right, the picture is more than pleasurable to visualize. 

Cyril is a baron whose estate is in ruins, no money or servants anymore. Jody is the thief and liar who thought he caught a big fish. 

Well prepared Jody approached his target, Cyril. One goal, to rob this man. It was quite simple to get an invitation to the man’s home. He easily could take a look around to find valuable things.
But he’s completely floored and disarmed by this trusting, kind, shy, and attentive man. 
Still, he’s got business to do.

Cyril cleared his throat. “May I offer you some tea?” 
“Fuck tea.”

Cyril is lovesick, he can’t get the man out of his head.
Until he understands the truth.

Everything felt plausible, the polite language, the clothes, the traveling, all the environments. I loved the story so much! This author has a great way of storytelling, I read it in one sit.
There are some heartbreaking side stories and their addition was everything.
These two men stole my heart from the very first moment and throughout this story, they became ever more adorable and lovable.
I loved the solution of how Cyril and Jody could live together during the era they lived in.
This whole story is a great addition to my bookshelf!

  1. Five weeks ago my boyfriend broke up with me. It all started when i went to summer camp i was trying to contact him but it was not going through. So when I came back from camp I saw him with a young lady kissing in his bed room, I was frustrated and it gave me a sleepless night. I thought he will come back to apologies but he didn't come for almost three week i was really hurt but i thank Dr.Azuka for all he did i met Dr.Azuka during my search at the internet i decided to contact him on his email dr.azukasolutionhome@gmail.com he brought my boyfriend back to me just within 48 hours i am really happy.
