This short story packs quite a punch! I can't reveal the ending without spoiling it, but I can say that it left me breathless. I love it when there's a surprise like that to leave me - well, impressed.

It’s a historical, even if the history is fictional since the exact details of the location and time are never revealed. The main character, Lieutenant Jarryd, has survived long years of service to his Duke. He has lost one lover to the drawn-out war already. When he meets Arin, who is a new recrui...more

After reading Maria McCann's historical romance/drama featuring two male characters in a tempestuous relationship set against the backdoor of war, I imagined a story of my own of fellow warriors who fall in love, having to endure the almost constant worry that one or the other might die at any time.

This story is one of my personal favorites that I've written. I created a review because I often reread my own stories, still trying to find if there can be something improved in it and I wanted to e...more
A Lieutenant’s Love is somewhat unexpected. It’s a gay fantasy historical set in some unknown, vague time yet the themes are universal. The story blends familiar elements with enough vague descriptions to give a feel for the story, time, and men without getting specific and being subjected to historical accuracy. It works for the most part since regardless of the world the story of love amongst war remains timeless.

The story begins with Jarryd, a young Lieutenant in the Duke’s army that’s been i...more
Usually I'm not a fan of historicals, but I liked this story.
Intense and sad and hopeful with a HEA for the two MCs, but kind of a sad twist for a secondary character. I'd love to read his story someday.
Rating demoted due to auto-rating from the author.

I think this short story will be well liked by the historical romance lovers. The setting is undefined, meaning that it’s somewhere between the XVII and XIX in a North European country, probably some Germany or Scandinavian dukedom.

Of Lieutenant Jarryd Alyt we knows that he “crossed an ocean and journeyed north from his own overpopulated land”, he is now under services of a Duke, trying to follow his father’s step, “for in his father’s homeland, the Crown eternally sought new lands and peoples...more

A historical piece by Red Haircrow that should not be passed up.

Lieutenant Jarryd Alyt, has lost one love already while fighting for the Duke. Jarryd is withdrawn from his men and from his true self when when Arin enters Jarryd's camp. I don't want to give to much away from the story. It is only 35 pages, but is a good read.

Red Haircrow brings texture to his words. There was one quote that stood out for. (view spoiler)...more
It is a short story but I was surprised so much happened and I loved the characters. It was just like watching a movie. I'd never heard of this writer until recently but glad I gave this a chance.
