Overall, this story was a good one. I thought it was a bit slow in the beginning but it picked up about page 50 and from there it was engaging. I enjoyed Michael and Daniel.
I did find quite a few glaring editorial problems, words that were misspelled, words not taken out when they should have been, leaving some awkward sentences, but they didn't detract from the story at all.
Period language was appreciated, as were the descriptions of the settings, clothes, etc. Good m/m historical romance which I enjoyed very much.
