Genre: M/M, Historical, Romance, Interracial
Before the War Between the States, Andrew had deep feelings for Robert, but he couldn’t express his desires to his young master. When the family fled Atlanta, he ran away to obtain his freedom. Ten years later, Andrew is not only free but the wealthy owner of several barbershops in New Orleans. Only one thing is lacking from his life: a long-term lover. When a customer tells him the whorehouse hired a new male prostitute he hopes visiting him could ease his loneliness. Only in his wildest dreams did he imagine the new whore to be Robert.
The war turned Robert’s life upside down. Without slaves to work his plantation, his father sold Robert to a brothel. Trained in the art of submission, Robert hates his life as a whore, but he doesn’t see a way out. Heartache hits him when he thinks about his past and happy memories of Andrew. The man deserted him when they were children, just like everyone he cared for had over the years.
When his former love interest reappears in his life can he get over the man’s betrayal and embrace the future?
Content Warning: This book contains historical style BDSM
My Review: 4/5 Stars
Warning: There is a lot of sex. With that said, Shiloh hit the pages running. She wove a tale of sex and trust.
Andrew was a slave on Robert’s father’s plantation. After the war he found his chance at freedom and took it, leaving a younger Robert behind. Within the ten years that he has been gone, Andrew became a free, and successful business man. Now he wants some one to share his wealth with and call his own.
Robert’s fate was not as lucky. After the war his father sold him to a brothel because he didn’t want to take care of him. Robert wants to be free and to find someone to love and cherish him.
After ten years the two men paths crosses again. Andrew has it arranged for them to spend the weekend together. He wants to regain Robert’s trust so that when their weekend is up, Robert will want to stay. Andrew is a dominate to Roberts submission. Though Robert feels abandoned by Andrew when they were younger, it takes a great deal of trust for Robert to let Andrew do to him as he pleased.
I enjoyed reading this book and can’t wait to read more from Shiloh.
Shiloh Saddler is primarily a GLBT erotic romance author. Her favorite genres are M/M and F/F historical.
She likes to do research for her steamy romances first hand. She has invented a time machine and travels back to the 19th century on a regular basis. There are experimental settings on her time machine which could propel her into the future and even other worlds.
She believes love and a good book makes anything possible.
