Squire William Raven has only one goal: to finally receive his spurs and become a knight. When his lord, Sir Robert de Cantilou, returns from a five-year crusade in the Holy Land, William wants nothing more than to impress him.
After Sir Robert's return, noble guests arrive from France, bringing intrigue to the castle. William is oblivious to the politics, as he's distracted by nightly visits from a faceless lover, a man who pleasures him in the dark and then leaves, a man he soon discovers is none other than his master, Sir Robert.
But William can't ignore the scheming around him when he overhears a plot to murder Robert. He becomes intent on saving his lord and lover from those who would see him killed....

Very well made and entertaining story
I haven't read the print version. I don't think that can be said, because if an audio book is good it had to be because the narrator AND the story is good.
Hard to compare, i don't read too much historical books and the ones i had, this was very different from them. I can't think of any book i can compare it to.
No, This is the first book i listen to from this narrator.
I guess the moment when an important part of the plot was settle was the best, but i can't say more without spoilers
Yes, it was a nice book. I liked the historical elements of it. It might not be the most romantic book i've read but it was very nice. I liked the narrator too, but at times it was hard to understand the change of characters, but after a few minutes of listening, i was more used to the change of voices and it was better.
One of the worst mm romances I've come across
I have no idea, someone who reads a book for the sex... The characters were sketchy at best, the story was almost non-existent and the romance was so meh, I can't say I thought I took it as a real romance.
Improve the characters, give them more personality, make the story more engaging and the romance more convincing.
The audio narrator was terrible throughout but exceeded himself even further with an unbelievably fake French accents, which sounded more like drunken Russian and indistinguishable English accents for the characters. I almost threw my iPod when I heard his voice for William. The supposed lion sounded like a twink who's put extra effort to sound even more effeminate than required!
It was really short!
