I know some folks think it's tacky for the author to give something they wrote five stars. Tough. I am proud of this story. Since the story never enjoyed a professional editing process, I know it has errors, especially the one toward the front (arrrrgh!)! I beat the words to pieces but I know my limitations. Unfortunately I didn't finish in time for my beta to massage the words.

On the upside, the story owns heart, love and healing, and characters who inspire me to keep documenting their romanti

Wow the tags don't mention age gap. One guy is 72 other is a mere 23.

Also doesn't mention he is married to a female.

The duel went on too long and was boring. I'm considering just not finishing.

Aperently three years ago while his wife was pregnant he started taking up with any young lad that caught his attention and never stopped. Been "ruling the kingdom with his cock for three years" and of course being the king the lads can't say no. So why are we supposed to like this rapist/cheating assho

Damn, long ago indeed. His brief life as prince seemed like another lifetime, an existence experienced by boy unscathed by exquisite treachery. The man who walked here now understood treachery’s vile facets, suffered from them, and ultimately defeated them.

And that is what I'm talking about when I scream out that I need detail. I know so much about the character and his way of life just from that one paragraph. I get a visual from that one paragraph. Even if the plot weren't unusual enough that
Oh my, S.A.! I've fallen in love with your messy King! Gustav is a wonderfully strong and loving man, while Tahir, despite his horrific past, is a sweet, loyal and giving man, perfect for Gustav!

Now I really, really hope we will have the rest of their tale together: cleaning up the traitorous Tothans, dealing with the bigoted and arrogant Edvin, learning more about the mysterious yet loving Aglaia, and reuniting with the kind and powerful Jan - perhaps with the help and support of the loyal Ain

The premise of the story is good. I got caught up and confused with the language that permeated the story; it was very "over-the-top" and more wordy than it needed to be. Once I was able to skip over some words and still retain the meaning of the story, I was able to enjoy it a bit more. I think, however, that A Cure for the King's Lust was too long for what was trying to be conveyed here. I, personally, wanted to hear more about the dastardly son who was going to make his father's "new toy" pay ...more

Last, but most definitely not least! This story is so rich with details and great characters. While still very alpha, Gustav seems like a wonderful King. I was so pleased to see that he could be sensitive and observant. And Tahir? Despite his traumatic past, he was fiercely loyal and loving. They were perfect for one another, but definitely need the rest of their story to be told:) I won't soon forget these lines: “My cock’s aim is quite true.” “My ass has noted the fact." *grins* This is a fant ...more

I dont like to write bad reviews for free reads, but... Wow. That was pure shite. Lots of things were wrong with this. Mostly wording and word tenses and some sentences seemed completely out of order. I had to reread so many times I lost track. Hints to things were brought up then skimmed over. The ending made absolutely no sense. It's like the author decided in the middle to just write The End. Weird.

The writing is just... annoying? I'm not sure that's the right word, but I can't stand even a page of it. This is the second story by this author I've dropped, so it's safe to say I won't try anymore...

I thought this was a well played story. It was definitely captivating. My only disappointment was the abrupt ending. I did not see that coming and felt that there should have been a glorious epilogue....

Thirty years ago, I started writing m/m romance. My writing remained a secret lest my friends thought me a freak. Writing about men inserting tab A into slot B didn’t seem the norm for a female teenager. Reading Gordon Merrick, John Rechy and Larry Kramer helped me fill in informational gaps. Yes, I read these books in my bedroom.

As the years progressed and I discovered my sexual path, I still wro
