When everything is taken from you, including the memory of who you are, what possible chance is there for happiness?
Edward Lazenby has it all—a rich grandfather, a beautiful home, days
spent riding his favorite horse in Hyde Park. What he doesn’t have, and
feels he never will, is handsome Thomas Marsden, a man who, at first,
seems repulsed by Edward’s forwardness when they meet.
Dalliances with members of the same sex in Victorian England can lead
to scandal or even imprisonment, so Edward and a few close friends have
formed their own Club where they can meet without fear of persecution.
When Edward’s grandfather dies, Edward is heir to his estate but before
he can lay claim to it, he is brutally assaulted, his injuries resulting
in complete memory loss.
Months later, Thomas Marsden finds him working as a stable boy on a
country estate. Thomas takes him back to London, hoping to find a way to
have Edward’s memory restored to him, and remind him that just before
he disappeared, they had declared their affection for each other.
Can the two men build a life together or will Edward’s disability be too much of a hurdle to happiness?
