Blurb: Jack and Christopher have made it through years of campaigning and the horrors of Waterloo together–side by side by day and, by night, in each other’s arms. After the war is over, however, will the love shared between this batman and his officer survive when Christopher returns to the life of a gentleman?
A Time For Loving is a historical short story of two lovers who survived the tragedies of war. After losing his hand, Christopher, the second son of a baron, returns home to recuperate. When he awakens, he discovers that his lover Jack has not left his side. In order to stay together without raising suspicions, Jack takes on the tasks of Christopher’s valet.
This story was too short! It’s really more like a snippet of what could have been a longer, much better developed romance. Like…if it would have shown how Jack and Christopher discovered each other, their first time together, how they fell in love, Christopher’s injury and recovery, and more about Christopher’s uncle. Oh, the POSSIBILITIES!!
Anyway, I think the story fit well with the time period and I enjoyed some of the dialects. I didn’t find the sex scene all that hot and spicy…but I think that’s because I prefer lots of sexual tension and I just wasn’t all that attached to characters either. I loved the ending and it put a huge smile on my face.
Like I said, this was a short story…and it serves its purpose. But I still think it has amazing potential for being expanded into a novel, maybe even a LONG novel. Jack and Christopher have a lot of story there to tell!!!!
Overall Impression: I Liked It
