Can he regain his lover’s freedom?
Lord Byron Wilton leaves England for the Americas after a public argument with his secret lover, Lord David Litchfield. On his return, he finds, Lord David has become an unwilling sex partner for the reprobate Mr. Hale and his cohorts, due to unpaid gambling debts. After Mr. Hale refuses his offer to settle the debts, Lord Byron makes an outlandish and dangerous plan to outwit the trio. He must use every trick in the book, and a considerable amount of his fortune, in an effort to regain his lover’s freedom.
Although a nice read and a relatively so-so story line, I found the main characters lacking in fibre.
It didn’t fire up my imagination and could have done with a little less lord/lady this or that throughout, and could’ve have done with a twist in the tale to liven it up more.
Reminded me a bit of the old Mills & Boon books of the 70’s (so that’s aging me!)…predictable and not memorable enough to liven up a conversation or pass onto a friend as a ‘you must read this’.
