|M/M romance of the new Earl and his stablemaster. They have not seen each other in 7 years as the new Earl was banished from his home by his father for the relationship between the two men. The old Earl is dead and the new Earl finally comes home. He is angry and bitter and wrong in his thoughts.
I liked Bryn, the stablemaster. Con, the Earl, I had problems with. He was a brooder. Too much of the story was Con's brooding and kicking himself for what he believed. He did not believe that the people who lived on his estate and the servants in his employ were happy to see him. Once Bryn was able to get Con to see it differently then the story lightened up and got better. Unfortunately, there was not much story left by then. I would rather have seen more Bryn and Con loving then Con angry and punishing.
