One of my first historical m/m romance, I got hooked since the first pages.
Set in the 19th-century London this book tells the story of a rent boy (Jem) who meets a noble and closeted man (Sir Alan). What was intended to be a one night stand turns into an offer of permanent employment as the Lord’s valet; after a slow and wonderfully depicted building relation Jem and Alan become at last lovers and companions. There’s a really intriguing secondary plot with a scary-dirty-evil-doctor villain.
Some of the slang used was a bit hard for me to understand but I loved Jem’s filthy talk and dirty tales.
