Just A Dream by Heather Boyd


 On the surface, Raphael has everything he needs: good friends, a title, and membership to the decadent Hunt Club where forbidden pleasure can be had at a moments notice. Pretending is not what he wants. Expectations by family and friends keep his feelings for Lord Claymore at bay. When his best friend returns to London in a black mood, Rafe sets out to cheer him up and
make Claymore’s upcoming birthday an event to remember.
Shaken and uneasy of his growing attraction to men, James has reached an uncomfortable crossroads in his well-ordered, respectable life. Plans to end his torment on his birthday are mere days away. However, his intention to explore forbidden passion just once comes unstuck. Can James follow through with his well-reasoned, sensible decision when a man who knows what he wants, needs him too?

A gay regency romance novella.

This story was one that I completely enjoyed, and hated when it ended! I was a bit worried when I started it because it was the 4th book in the series, and I haven’t read the previous books before starting this one. Thankfully though, I was still able to follow along with the story without any problems whatsoever.
The story is a historical one, and even though I wasn’t completely sure how I would like a M/M romance set in a historical time I was once again caught off guard with how well the story was written. I really believe that Ms. Boyd did a great job writing a story that takes place in a time long ago, yet it was written in a way that even if you’re not a fan of historical’s you would still be able to enjoy it.
I think out of the characters mentioned in this story, my favorite would be James. I am a total glutten for punishment but I completely enjoyed the back and forth that he faced during the story. I also liked how it wasn’t an instant thing for him either. He did have his mixed feelings about everything, even after he found out that his feelings were returned, he was still worried.
With this being the first book that I have read by Ms. Boyd, she has a new fan for life! I can’t wait to go back and read the other books in this series.
