Three traitor lords plotted to kill the king; now their sons must deal with the aftermath.
Solicitor Robert Clarkson had begun to think he’d never have his own law practice, not when all of the work he was given at Glasson & Co. involved estate matters, until he was assigned to handle the business contracts of Lord Heathborough, son of one of the notorious traitor lords. Lord Heathborough has connections that could lead to the kind of clients Robert finds most interesting, and it doesn’t hurt that he is exceedingly handsome.
Laurence Nelson, Lord Heathborough, had always known his father would destroy his inheritance somehow and had built up a fortune of his own against the day, but he certainly never expected it to come in the form of a plot to kill the king. As the only traitor lord captured, his father was only making it worse enjoying the notoriety and telling the press anything he thought would make the conspirators seem clever, including details of the stock swindle used to finance it. At least his new solicitor isn’t bothered by it, although Laurence is certainly bothered by the handsome Mr. Clarkson.
When the Crown begins to suspect Laurence of using his companies to aid the traitor lords in their stock swindle, he’ll need to decide if he can trust his new solicitor, or if Robert was part of the plot all along.
A gay – M/M romance novel set in the Regency period with a medium heat level. This book was previously published with different distributor under the same title and cover. No changes have been made.
This is one of those reads that is a slow build up type of read. It is not like book one where everything started from the beginning and kept all the way through. This book on the other hand started off slow and had to work its way up to everything. If being honest, it is not until halfway through the book that it starts to get interesting.
Laurence is another son that gets caught up in the middle of the scandal his father was involved in when he plotted with other Lords to kill the King. The Crown is still trying to figure out who all was involved and Laurence finds that he may be caught in the middle of it though he had nothing to do with it.
One thing Laurence does is find a new solicitor so that he is not using the same one as his father and therefore causing a conflict of interest. That is where Robert comes in.
Robert is the solicitor that Laurence hires so that he can help Laurence with all the legal issues because of his father. The more Robert looks into things and the more Laurence starts to learn about people that have been in his life the more he starts to question everyone including Robert.
Though Laurence and Robert seem to have something special between them, Laurence has been burned in the past and is scared that maybe he is once again trusting the wrong person.
Can Laurence figure out whether Robert is trustworthy or not before time runs out and Laurence is accused of something he did not do? Can Robert help Laurence find out who was truly behind all the scheming and thieving?
This was a good read but I would have liked it to not been so slow-going for the first half of the book. Once it got to the second half of the book, it got more interesting and finally started getting my attention. I will give the next book the benefit of the doubt by reading it. I just hope that it is not slow-going.
