The Spare and The Heir: a romance novel with pictures

· Illustrated Romance

About this ebook

Thorne Magnus Calder, heir to the Duke of St. Cyr, has been betrayed by his own heart. 

Watching the man he loves court the lovely Lady Alain was a pain so visceral he quit London but when Calder receives word that Quinn and Celeste are married it’s a vow Calder refuses to break.

Lord Quintin Wyntor's heart has always belonged to Calder but a relationship with another man is a crime neither is willing to face. The strain drives a wedge between them. 

As a man of honor, Quinn marries the very woman who drove the last wedge between he and his lover but he never anticipated she would hand him the key to his own freedom.

When Lady Alain forces Quinn to accept that his love for Calder cannot be denied, Quinn realizes that the risks they’ll face together may not be as dangerous as their desolation as they attempt to survive apart.

As Quinn chases Calder to India one thing is certain—Quinn will not return to England without the man he loves and if they can conquer their differences, together their little triumvirate may be given the grace to survive.

This book is the story of Calder and Quinn and has their happily ever after with Celeste. 

The prequel is The Trouble With Grace—which has important elements of Calder and Quinn’s story as well as Celeste’s primary romance and HFN.

Warning: You’re going to fall in love, and it’s going to hurt.
