“Everything that makes good Regency drama is here—high society, duels, romantic locations, and of course, a look at the underbelly of the Regency world, including a very harsh and realistic look at Newgate prison. Highly recommended if you love Regencies, gay fiction, or just plain romance.”
—R.W. Day, author of A Strong and Sudden Thaw

A great house. A family dispossessed. A sensitive young man. A powerful landowner. An epic love that springs up between two men.

Set in the post-Napoleonic years of the 1820s, Standish is a tale of two men—one man discovering his sexuality and the other struggling to overcome his traumatic past. Ambrose Standish, a studious and fragile young man, has dreams of regaining the great house his grandfather lost in a card game. When Rafe Goshawk returns from the continent to claim the estate, their meeting sets them on a path of desire and betrayal which threatens to tear both of their worlds apart. Painting a picture of homosexuality in Georgian England, Standish is a love story of how the decisions of two men affect their journey through Europe and through life.

Second edition, newly revised by the author.
