2nd Edition

In medieval England, duty is everything, personal honor is more valued than life itself, and homosexuality is not tolerated by the church or society.

Sir Christian Brandon was raised in a household where he was hated for his unusual beauty and for his parentage. Being smaller than his six brutish half-brothers, he learned to survive by using his wits and his gift for strategy, earning him the nickname the Crow.

Sir William Corbett, a large and fierce warrior known as the Lion, has pushed his unnatural desires down all his life. He’s determined to live up to his own ideal of a gallant knight. When he takes up a quest to rescue his sister from her abusive lord of a husband, he’s forced to enlist the help of Sir Christian. It’s a partnership that will test every strand of his moral fiber, and, eventually, his understanding of the meaning of duty, honor, and love.

Belens Audio Book Review

I will admit I was hesitant for this audio book – not only because it’s a historical romance, which can be an iffy thing when dealing with M/M unless it’s AU, but because when I listened to the sample the narrator, Scott Richard Ehredt, sounded like a stuffy old British guy who would bore me to death. God, was I wrong!


Scott Richard Ehredt is PERFECT. He blew me away. Seriously…Blew. Me. Away.

The characters and time (late 1200’s to early 1300’s) are beautifully, and even lovingly, portrayed. The only thing I didn’t love about this was the ending (even though it totally fits). The ending killed me. I hated the ending. I wish someone had warned me.

Listeners should stop in the epilogue at the step-daughter’s wedding.
Consider the spoiler my warning to you (without giving anything away) unless you want your heart torn out and stomped on.

Tear out my heart
