This short story (only 5 pages) is offered free at Smashwords. Despite the length, I feel that it packs quite a punch about a man (Stephen) who yearns for his servant (Austin). He tries to deal with his feeling by firing Austin, but the younger man begs him to let him stay because he will be heartbroken if Stephen let him go. Which leads to love confession and a hot sex. The ending is pretty sweet and tender. Love it!

I spent most of the time reading this trying to understand what was going on. I never really did make sense of it, and it was just way too short for any sort of clarity.

I found this free short story, a scene really, at Smashwords. It's historical, which I noticed only after having already started it, otherwise I probably wouldn't have read it. It was well written, and a happy glimpse into what I hope happened to many, many gay men in the past. One can always hope. How to rate it? It was nothing special, just a sex scene really, but very skillfully written. If you're interested in historical m/m you might want to read it.

Kinda hard to review this since it is not really a story...not even a chapter.

For a free read that is only five pages to boot, it is about as good as you can expect from that.

Short, sweet, steamy.

This was okay, but I guess I had expected more. It just felt like more could have been expressed and was missing. It was a good read, if all you are really interested in was a quick sex scene.
Marcia Carrington
Eloquently written erotica which builds well and has a plausible reason for the events taking place, rather than just being an excuse for showcasing explicit sex.

I liked it but it was too short to say any more than that!

Difficult to rate because it is basically PWP.
