Peek Inside The Blacksmith's Son

Captain Quentin Drake returns home after his Naval commission ends to find a young groom being beaten in the village stables. Weary from his travels, Quentin only wants a good night’s sleep, but refuses to turn a blind eye to the lad’s mistreatment. He intervenes, taking the lad to his room, only to discover a woman masquerading as a boy. After Ally Lockwood’s family dies, she supports herself by assisting the local blacksmith with his horses. She’s not allowed to do the work as a woman, so she dresses as a boy, but her ruse is up when, due to injury, she’s disrobed by a handsome stranger. What starts as a shared supper, leads to so much more...

This story is uniquely set in the time period in question. It both conforms with and goes against the times. Thomas walks a line to make this a very unique novella that keeps you thinking and guessing. I must also say that I never expected the novel to end the way that it did. Thomas’ emotional,... ...more

First off I'm not big on historical drama, but as this was a shorter read I decided to give it a try and I liked it.

By Leslie aka StoreyBook Reviews November 30, 2013

another enjoyable novella...I read about 5 of these that are new from the Flirt line of Entangled. A little racy in some parts but a good story. I could see this developing even more into more than a novella, just so many ways to expand the story and explain a few more things. ...more
