    Summary

    “You’ve been gone a while,” James said.

    Seven months. He’d set out as soon as the weather cleared up, loathe to be cooped up with the reminders of his failure any longer.
    “You know how it is,” Francis said, following the line connecting their bodies, from Fitzjames’s hand, with its smooth skin and long fingers, up his arm and shoulder, to the part where his clavicle was visible under the robe that had slipped, over his throat with the Adam’s apple working as Fitzjames swallowed, and lastly, to his face. When he met Fitzjames’s eyes, everything that needed to be said had been said.

     

     

     

    The year is 1898. Francis Crozier is a bounty hunter who loves the road more than anyone else he’s ever met. James Fitzjames is a cowboy looking for his place in the world.

    Summary

    "Yes," Irving said and gently pulled his arm away, taking the stairs up.
    Hodgson was left standing in the entry hall with his dogs and feeling at the same time quite content and indeed very bereft.
    A bit of music would sort him surely out, he thought and took to the parlour and his clavier.

    Summary

    Jopson slides the captain’s right epaulet into place, adjusts it minutely, and steps back. “Let us see, sir,” he says.

    The older man stands still for inspection, his arms extended before him and a glint of amusement in his eye. With nimble fingers, Thomas plucks a hair from his sleeve—the man’s own, warm silver—and nods once, a neat and practiced dip of the chin conveying approval.

    “What would I do,” Crozier queries with a sly cock of his brow, “without you to tend to me?” His gaze flicks to Jopson’s lips. “I might have to take a wife.”

    Summary

    "It is a paradox—one very much in line with what Thomas knows of life—that, whilst he longed for quiet when Edward's niece and nephews were staying, the moment they leave, he finds himself missing their noise."
