2015 Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention: The Lion and the Crow by Eli Easton

The Lion and the Crow by Eli Easton
Gay Historical Romance
Publisher: Dreamspinner Press; 2 edition (January 19, 2015)
Amazon Kindle: The Lion and the Crow

2nd Edition

In medieval England, duty is everything, personal honor is more valued than life itself, and homosexuality is not tolerated by the church or society.

Sir Christian Brandon was raised in a household where he was hated for his unusual beauty and for his parentage. Being smaller than his six brutish half-brothers, he learned to survive by using his wits and his gift for strategy, earning him the nickname the Crow.

Sir William Corbett, a large and fierce warrior known as the Lion, has pushed his unnatural desires down all his life. He’s determined to live up to his own ideal of a gallant knight. When he takes up a quest to rescue his sister from her abusive lord of a husband, he’s forced to enlist the help of Sir Christian. It’s a partnership that will test every strand of his moral fiber, and, eventually, his understanding of the meaning of duty, honor, and love.

This was a wonderful story with some expected and some unexpected twists. The characters were vivid right from the beginning and I loved to see how the relationship between Christian and William progressed. There was a lot of warmth, compassion and love between these characters and it was simply lovely to read. The ending took me by surprise, though I think it was a fitting one.

Wonderful characters and never a dull moment. This one was perfect in every way.
