Mycroft Holmes is a successful, yet reclusive, mystery writer whose books have topped bestseller lists for years. Mycroft’s agent, Anthea, nearly had to resort to torture to persuade the writer to allow a studio the rights to film one of his books and he only agreed after a section was added to the contract that gave him final say on the choice of actors to play the detective in his novel. The studio wants the highly profitable and extremely sexy Greg Lestrade for the role, but Mycroft isn’t happy with the choice, since Greg’s films don't fit the more cerebral tone of the novel being filmed.
Greg, however, is desperate for the role, as he’s wanted to break out of the pigeonhole he’s been confined to, acting wise, and truly get the chance to show his skills as a serious actor. The studio finally pulls Greg from a publicity tour for his latest film and sends him to Mycroft’s remote country home to do some persuading. Once there, after getting to know the secretive, brilliant and slightly-eccentric Mycroft Holmes, Greg isn’t certain which ranks higher on his persuading list - him getting a role he dearly wants or him getting a man he dearly wants. One of those however, might be winning by a nose…

When John Watson makes an impulsive decision to take a shortcut home through the slave Den, he never imagines what he's going to find.
"Chin up." Two fingers beneath the warm, pointed chin, and he finds himself being scrutinized by the palest set of blue-grey-green eyes he's ever seen. The slave isn't conventionally beautiful, especially like this, but John can see how, with some feeding up, he could be. He's got long lashes and nice cheekbones and full lips, all of which has likely pleased more than one owner in the past.
"You're a doctor," says the slave.
"I am." John palpitates the area around his collarbone gently, noting the wince the slave can't hide. Definitely broken. "And I'm guessing you're a handful."
The smile is quick, infectious. "So they tell me."
