Lie back and think of England... England, 1904. Two years ago, Captain Archie Curtis lost his friends, fingers, and future to a terrible military accident. Alone, purposeless and angry, Curtis is determined to discover if he and his comrades were the victims of fate, or of sabotage. Curtis’s search takes him to an isolated, ultra-modern country house, where he meets and instantly clashes with fellow guest Daniel da Silva. Effete, decadent, foreign, and all-too-obviously queer, the sophisticated poet is everything the straightforward British officer fears and distrusts. As events unfold, Curtis realizes that Daniel has his own secret intentions. And there’s something else they share—a mounting sexual tension that leaves Curtis reeling. As the house party’s elegant facade cracks to reveal treachery, blackmail and murder, Curtis finds himself needing clever, dark-eyed Daniel as he has never needed a man before…Warning: Contains explicit male/male encounters, ghastly historical attitudes, and some extremely stiff upper lips.

I'd picked up this one a while back, when I was browsing through the m/m historical fiction ebooks, but had never got round to actually reading it... Anyway, Think of England is set in the early part of the 20th century when one of our main characters (Archie Curtis) is still recovering from his e...
I've wanted to read an HR m/m romance for ages but I've never found one that caught my fancy. A friend recommended this one to me and bing! We had a winner. Great book. Loved Da Silva. And can't wait to check out more titles from this author.
In short: I love this.In long: I wrote about how much I loved it over The Bookpushers for Queer Romance Month.Queer or straight or what-you-will, if your romantic feelings are sexualised, I think a lot of people go through a stage of life best articulated as “omg, now I can have sex”. For me, it hit...
