Job Marsh somehow manages to weave a seductive spell around the inspector’s straight laced heartGradually undeniable attraction overcomes caution The two men are on the case and on each other as they race to stop a murderer before he kills again Warning Graphic language and hot malemale sex with light BDSM themes Despite “Descriptions of Murderous Acts” perpetrated by an unhinged killer resist the temptation to cover your eyes you’ll miss the good part Four and a half starsI ummed and ahhed about reviewing this one for Speak Its Name because it does have some paranormal aspects spiritualism but I ve decided that this could be treated in the same way as ghosts the only other paranormal theme we accept because it could be subjective and brought on by other reasons such as split personalities etcThis book continues this writing partnership s run of titles with similar names The Nobleman and the Spy The Gentleman and the Rogue there s endless fodder here and long may they continue to do themIf you enjoyed either of the last titles then you ll certainly enjoy this The thing is that although the titles are similar and there might be the danger that the authors would find it easy to slip into a pattern of plot that would be highly predictable they are to be commended that they don t do that at allThis uite apart from the gay romance within it is a good Victorian sleuth story which stands firmly on its own two feet You could remove the gay romance and the detective story would still be viable and that s needed in the genre too many stories simply concentrate on the meeting and eventual falling in loveYes there s instant attraction on both sides and this attraction is acted on pretty soon and both parties start to realise they are becoming fonder of each other than is wise but the detective story runs neatly parallel to this at a good pace deflecting us from simply concentrating on the uncertain love affair This makes the balance of the book great and therefore accessible to than just people who want gay sex storiesThe sex is nicely written with a BDSM theme I m not a fan of the trope and find it odd that so many gay books have it far higher percentage of men in fiction indulge than do in real life I m sure but what there is is nicely done At least for me with little knowledge of the lifestyle It s most definitely play and the bottom is the top which is how it should be There was one scene where for me it tipped from sexy to rather giggle worthy but I am 12 and I m sure others won t be as juvenile as meThere are many secondary characters here as befits a sleuthing story and each one is given the necessary weight as suspicion shifts from person to person As well the suspects there is a veritable line up of society matrons simpering hopefuls for the bachelor Court s affections and Dickensian work colleaguesWhat I liked most is that both characters whilst developing in their personality throughout both for the better remained true to their core beliefs Robert is a copper to his bootstraps and he was sent to investigate Oliver s mediuming don t think that s a word and the way he deals with it after Oliver becomes his lover is entirely in character Similarly the authors give Oliver a need to want to help people and he s never been comfortable conning them although he s been very clever never to actually do anything that could be proved to be fraudulentI would have liked to have seen a little of Oliver s original business as he seemed to give it up altogether very uicklyOne thing that jarred for me and again I know that some readers love this device was the sex scene that was put in after the denouement and the concluding sections It seemed really jammed in and it added nothing to the plot and my criteria has always been with sex scenes if you can lift them out and they don t cause a ripple they didn t belong there in the first placeHowever despite a couple of tiny niggles it s a really enjoyable read and if you like Victoriana crime fiction and anything written by this dynamic duo then you ll like this with great big brass knobs onThe score doesn t reflect it but for shame Samhain surely you could have done a better job on the cover than that Elasticated boxers So much scope with lovely Victorian scenes and clothes and we get disconnected naked guys and a Matt Bomer lookalike Horrid

Spiritualism though his flashes of insight often offer his clients some comfort Despite the presence of an attractive if sneering non believer at a séance he carries on and experiences a horrifying psychic episode in which he experiences a murder as the victimThere’s only one way for Court to learn if the young dangerously attractive Marsh is his cousin’s killer or a real psychic spend as much time with him as possible Despite his resolve to focus on his I m not normally a fan of historical fiction but Ms Dee and Ms Devon won me over with this well plotted story Set back in London of 1892 Oliver Marsh is a con man playing the Spiritualist to wealthy old women He justifies his scams by telling himself that he truly is doing a service by comforting them about their lost loved ones Robert Court is a cop assigned to bring Marsh to justice but sparks fly when the two men meet at a seance The story really starts to move when Oliver has some real psychic flashes of a woman Lily being murdered Turns out that Lily was Robert s cousin As the Oliver s psychic flashes become intense so does the sexual attraction between Robert and Oliver The real killer must be caught but it will take complete trust between the psychic and the sleuth I thoroughly enjoyed the interplay that Ms Dee and Ms Devon wove between Oliver and Robert The two men were perfect foils for one another There is some BDSM which adds spice to the stuffy thinking of old London and shows that while discreet gay men of the time heated up the sheets The mystery side of the story was intriguing and kept me interested right up until the surprising end I recommend this well written story to any mystery lover

    grmFor all the story it seemed as if the author was building the plot towards a great scene like a crescendo that would take us to a crucial point but then when we finally arrived to the point where our guys confronted the killer it felt like going down an hill I think that all the expectations we had while reading were crushed by the simplicity of this scene one that should have been the most important part of the book So yeah

    Four and a half starsI ummed and ahhed about reviewing this one for Speak Its Name because it does have some paranormal aspects spiritualism but I’ve decided that this could be treated in the same way as ghosts – the only other paranormal theme we accept – because it could be subjective and brought on by other reasons such as split personalities etcThis book continues this writing partnership’s run of titles wit
