"An earl hiding from his future . . . Lawrence Browne, the Earl of Radnor, is mad. At least, that's what he and most of the village believes. A brilliant scientist, he hides himself away in his family's crumbling estate, unwilling to venture into the outside world. When an annoyingly handsome man arrives at Penkellis, claiming to be Lawrence's new secretary, his carefully planned world is turned upside down. A swindler haunted by his past . . . Georgie Turner has made his life pretending to be anyone but himself. A swindler and con man, he can slip into an identity faster than he can change clothes. But when his long-dead conscience resurrects and a dangerous associate is out for blood, Georgie escapes to the wilds of Cornwall. Pretending to be a secretary should be easy, but he doesn't expect that the only madness he finds is the one he has for the gorgeous earl.Can they find forever in the wreckage of their lives? Challenging each other at every turn, the two men soon give into the desire that threatens to overwhelm them. But with one man convinced he is at the very brink of madness and the other hiding his real identity, only true love can make this an affair to remember." -- back cover

From Library Staff

"Cat Sebastian’s LGBT historical romances are such a gift to the genre, and this might be my favorite of hers to date. She strikes the perfect balance between witty banter and heartfelt emotion, and the happily-ever-after will have you sighing in contentment at the end." (Martha)

LGBT historical romance is so interesting for a number of reasons. First of all, the couple's happily-ever-after can't be the traditional one (marriage) for a historical, and it's cool to see how this is navigated; second of all, the weird power dynamics that characterize traditional historical romances (on account of men having so much more power than women at the time) are absent, which I find super refreshing. All this is to say that I really liked this -- Cat Sebastian is extremely talented, with a real flair for dialogue and subtle humor, on top of the very emotionally resonant romance she has created here, and I'll be keeping an eye out for whatever she writes next.

As I'm sure will surprise exactly no one, I really enjoyed this novel! Sweet and steamy.
