Alfred Pennington, the Earl of Crawford, knows someone wants him dead. An illicit boxing match seems the perfect opportunity to hire a champion fighter to watch his back, but Alfie is shocked to recognize the beaten and bloody challenger as his childhood friend, Dominick, one of the few people who knows the truth about Alfie’s past.
Life has been hard for Dominick, so he can’t believe his luck when Alfie—now with fine manners and a fancy title—offers him a chance to escape the slums in order to catch a potential killer. That’s difficult enough, but not falling in love with the refined, confident man his friend has become may prove trickier still.
The investigation draws the two men closer than ever, but it becomes clear that their years apart may prove too much to overcome. As the danger mounts, can they find their way through the past to a future together? Or will hidden secrets cost them their happiness… and their lives?
His Lordship's Secret is the first title in the His Lordship's Mysteries series.
4 out of 5 (very good)

Lord Crawford has got somebody trying to assassinate him so in a desperate attempt he hires a bodyguard after watching him in a boxing match and he seems familiar. He finds his long lost friend and the reason why somebody wants him dead!
This is a lovely written story the way the friendship blooms after the time they've had apart is fantastic. Some fights occur and I found myself wincing, to be honest, it's that well written. The sex scenes aren't coarsely written they are graphic but beautiful in a way the connection they have is amazing.
It really was a shock who was attempting to murder Alfie and why!
Definitely suggest you read it

Samantha SoRelle grew up all over the world and finally settled in Southern California when she soaked up too much sunshine and got too lazy to move.
When she’s not writing, she’s doing everything possible to keep from writing. This has led to some unusual pastimes including but not limited to: perfecting fake blood recipes, designing her own cross-stitch patterns, and wrapping presents for tigers .
She also enjoys collecting paintings of tall ships and has lost count of the number of succulents she owns.
