Sequel to Poacher's Fall
Midwinter Manor: Book Two
Landowner Philip Luccombe has been enjoying a passionate relationship with young poacher turned gamekeeper Danny Costessey for four years now. Danny's love has brought him out of the shell he retreated into when his first lover died after the Great War. But this Christmas, visitors to the manor threaten their happiness. Philip's young cousin Matthew is artistic, vivacious, and flirtatious: just the sort to remind him of his long-dead first love-and to emphasise the social gulf between Philip and Danny.
But the worst danger comes from much nearer home. An old flame of Danny's is discovered in incriminating circumstances, forcing the lovers to keep their distance for fear of being tarred with the same brush. Meanwhile, Danny's younger brother, Toby, has grown to resent the connection between his brother and the lord of the manor. Danny wants to do the right thing-but that could divide the lovers forever.
