William Wilkerson leads the life of the privileged rich. Head of his father’s shipping business, he indulges to his heart’s content in the pleasures of the flesh with Boston’s finest young men.
That is, until he reunites with Fredrick: his former tutor and the one man who captured his heart.
But William’s father has declared Fredrick off limits. And Fredrick, himself, believes he's beneath the attention of the Wilkerson heir.
After having lost his current pupil to graduation, and with no prospects of a replacement, Frederick is homeless, hungry, and easy pickings for the men on the docks.
When Frederick is shanghaied into service on William’s own merchant ship, will William discover his plight in time to rescue him?


Freya’s Book Brief

Frederick and William – Ex-tutor and lover. After a humiliating intervention by William’s father, Frederick leaves the estate and moves as far away as he can. Three years later the men meet by chance and, once again love blossoms.

Oh my, like this review, Sweet William, is a shortie but a goodie. If you like period drama, this is a must for your library. For me, it ticked all the boxes. It had drama, emotion, loving and damn the sex was graphically hot.

It has the language of Pride and Prejudice – charmingly authentic only with the setting of Boston docks. I could just imagine being on sea front watching the story unfold. We have a shanghai, lovely ladies, gorgeous men, a miser and a hero to the rescue. What more could a person want – and all in such a sweet package.

This story has been well told and expertly edited. I enjoyed every word.
