- A Life Apart
on March 22, 2013
A Life Apart has love, sex, violence, adventure, seashells, 1884 British military strategy, spitting camels, fuzzy wuzzies and yorkshire pudding. What more could you desire in a historical romance novel?
Victorian England, teatime, elite boys school, dangerous back alleys, forts, army barracks, desert sands, emirs, soldiers, nubians, dervishes, perils, uncertainty, love, passion, sex, friendship, military camaraderie, thrilling battles, daring escapes, exotic locales, slavery, heroism, allegiance and always hope.
Separated in war two lovers fear they will never see each other again but nothing will stop them from trying.
It's a brilliant story of treachery and hate, loyalty and love.
We have not seen such a great bravery and passion since Roger Kean's story of Malco in his previous historical romance Thunderbolt Torn Enemy of Rome. Once again his knowledge of history and his career in writing have produced a masterpiece, Roger's partner Oliver Frey was the artist for the book cover and his legendary reputation in the gay art world shines brightly adorning A Life Apart.
