Well-written, good plot, solid characters. The male lead is a former employee of the East India Company, formerly stationed in India, which turns into a integral part of the story. Lots of steamy sex scenes advance the plot.
Male lead: Sir Gideon Trevithick, recently returned to England, hoping to settle peaceably in Cornwall.
Female Lead: Lady Charis Weston, a lady in trouble, seeking a sanctuary until she can control her fortune.
Supporting characters: Akash, Gideon's friend, always turns up in the nick of time, Tulliver, stalwart servant.
