Lindsey Althorp, the only son of a wealthy baronet, has never worked a day in his life. Aubrey Warren was born in a workhouse and hasn’t stopped working since.
When Lindsey wins a textile mill in a game of cards, he falls at first sight for the assistant clerk, Aubrey. Lindsey is certain that Aubrey is the Achilles to his Patroclus, the David to his Jonathan. Yet Aubrey, unaccustomed to affection, refuses to be a kept man—though he isn’t immune to Lindsey’s considerable charm.
Buoyed by Lindsey's optimism and fuelled by Aubrey's industry, the two men strive to overcome the class gulf between them. But a horrific accident reveals a betrayal that threatens to tear them apart forever.

Overcoming Obstacles for Love!
This is a historical tale of “like” at first sight by naïve, sheltered Sir Lindsey & office clerk Aubrey. The story incorporates betrayal, abuse, blackmail, attempted murder, death, an explosion along with the usual romance and sexy times. What’s not to love! I enjoyed the storytelling, the MCs are well developed, the co-characters enhancement the tale and the protagonist was evil (a love to hate personality).
I’m a fan of Mr. Sebastian Nothwell's books and recommend another one ‘Hold Fast’. On to the next installment...’Throw His Heart Over’.
