Perfect love casts out fear. If you let it. Cambridge Fellows Mysteries, Book 2 Jersey, 1906 St. Bride's English don Jonty Stewart is in desperate need of a break from university life. A holiday on the beautiful Channel Island of Jersey seems ideal, especially if he can coax his lover Orlando to step outside the college's walls to come along. Orlando Coppersmith is scared. Within the safe confines of the school it's easy to hide the fact that they are t just friends, but lovers. In an unkwn place, in full view of everyone, how will they keep their illegal affair private-much less dare to make love, even in the security of their suite? A brutal murder at their hotel forces their personal problems into the background-at first. The race to catch the killer gets complicated when the prime suspect finds Orlando irresistible. Suddenly keeping their affair clandestine isn't only a matter of legality. It's a matter of life and death... Warning: Contains sensual m/m lovemaking and handsome young men in (and out of) Edwardian bathing costumes.
