Trapped by Ruby Moone 4*
BLURB: Sam Holloway is a desperate man. Trapped in Dante’s, the high-class London brothel catering to men who love men, his only hope is to find a rich protector. Then he meets the young aristocrat with sad eyes.
Tristan Barrington, sixth earl of Chiltern, waited until the death of his father before acting on his unnatural desires. Dante’s has a reputation for quality and absolute discretion. He never expected to find in its sordid depths a glorious man who could master not only his body but his heart, as well.
In Tristan, Sam sees an opportunity to flee a life he hates, and he sets his sights on seducing the earl. Tristan vows to help him escape, but in the process not only uncovers the vile corruption at the heart of Dante’s but also suspects that Sam’s declaration of love was nothing but a lie.
Then Sam is gravely injured, and Tristan faces a tough decision -- leave Sam to his fate, or help him once again?
My Review:I was given a copy as part of the review tour for this book. The first thing to establish is that this is a companion book to The Wrong Kind of Angel but can be read as a stand alone. The second thing to establish is that I did not know this when I agreed to review it and I am going to be reading the first one as soon as possible. So, on to my opinion of this book. Well it wasn't at all what I expected but in a good way. I thought it would be an M/M Barbara Cartland kind of story but it wasn't. Even with keeping it true to the facts of the times it is set in, it still managed to have a decent action and suspense filled storyline with plenty of hot sex and humour for the two main characters. I especially liked the surprises that the author sneaked in and the way she gave the couple a believable happy ending.
