 Lord Dixon is known among the wilder members of the ton for two things, his very exclusive brothels specializing in the most exotic of pleasures and his habit of keeping a concubine, a well-paid, full-time prostitute, at his country home for a year at a time. But romance can still be found in his shadow.


Matthew Greensleigh has been trying for years to have a role in the family business, but all of the opportunities are handed to his older brother.  So when his father summons him to one of Lord Dixon’s notorious brothels in London to “do his duty,” Matthew goes, prepared to do anything to prove to his father that he is as valuable as his brother.  But he was not expecting to learn Lord Dixon had taken a liking to him and wanted him as his concubine, a private prostitute kept at his country estate for a year at a time, or that his father expected him to agree to it.  


Sir Robert Farnsdale does not have time to deal with innocent young fools.  It’s why he limits his pleasures to finest London brothels, and why he has cultivated a friendship with Lord Dixon for years as a convenient cover for his own desires.    But when an obviously worried young man nearly knocks him over at one of Dixon’s brothels, he finds himself wanting to help.  And when Matthew Greensleigh asks him to show him what to expect as Lord Dixon’s concubine, Sir Robert finds himself agreeing to an afternoon together against his better judgment and then to bringing him to meet Dixon for the journey to the country estate.


Matthew knows Sir Robert is being kind, and that, no matter how much Matthew admires him, he could never think of Matthew as more than some lad he once helped out.  Robert does not have time for relationships with young innocents, so why can’t he get the image of Matthew Greensleigh enjoying a bit of pain with his pleasure out of his mind?

Lord Dixon is known among the wilder members of the ton for two things, his very exclusive brothels specializing in the most exotic of pleasures and his habit of keeping a concubine, a well-paid, full-time prostitute, at his country home for a year at a time. But romance can still be found in his shadow.

Jim Smith has just finished two years working for the notorious Lord Dixon as his concubine, a private, full-time prostitute at his country house, but it’s gotten him what he wanted, enough money to leave behind the brothels of London and buy himself a small country cottage where he can grow plants and live quietly with no one knowing about his time at Dixon’s or the years before that working as a prostitute.


Sir Lionel Westin has spent his life so far getting his brother and the family business out of one scrape after another while building his own successful tea business, and he’s just learned it was for naught.  His father left the entire business to his older brother with no mention of all Lionel’s work.  At least he’s enjoying the journey to back to his country estate with the amusing and understanding Mr. Smith, so much so that he invites Mr. Smith to stay with him at Hensley House.  Unfortunately, Mr. Smith doesn’t seem to have found the trip as enjoyable as he turns down the invitation.


Jim knows he should keep his distance from the handsome, kind Sir Lionel Westin, and he intends to until a storm forces Jim to take Lionel’s offer of a room at Hensley House, and then it seems only natural to offer to warm his bed.  But as they spend time together, Jim realizes he’s falling in love with Sir Lionel Westin.  He also knows he’ll need to leave before Lionel realizes it.  Surely Sir Lionel Westin deserves better than a prostitute and former concubine to the notorious Lord Dixon.  And when Jim learns Lord Dixon purchased a country house nearby, he knows it’s only a matter of time before all his secrets come to light.
