This is the second book in Lily Morton's Black and Blue series. The story is a take on a good old-fashioned gothic novel. It has everything! A mysterious house on an English moor, the return of a long lost parent, mournful female ghosts and spirits set on revenge. The tension and feeling of dread come off the page in waves and I was on pins and needles the entire time. The horror elements are strong but the love story between Levi and Blue does not suffer at all! This is one that will be joining my Halloween reading list.

“Oh my God,” I say. “I know who he reminds me of now.” Blue and Tom turn to me. “Who?” Blue asks. “Willy Wonka,” I say promptly. Blue laughs, and I poke him. “He’s offered you all a golden ticket to come here, but he’s got a bigger prize up his sleeve. Who amongst the group is going to win the chocolate factory?” I pause dramatically. “And who will end up shrunk, stretched, or sent down the rubbish chute?”

“I want you to know that I really want to kiss you at this moment,” I whisper fervently. “But you’re not going to?” he says with a twinkle in his eyes. “No,” I say earnestly. “But only because of the vomit.” He smiles, and I hug him. “It would have been an epic kiss too,” I confide. “Full of passion and love and relief because you came back for me.”

“I began to consider myself as too far from the living and somewhat too near the dead.” Walter Scott

From The Publisher


Levi Black has mostly recovered from the events of a year ago. The only lingering effects are that he’s much more well known in York than he’d like to be, and he’s a lot more cautious about walking around his house naked. However, those events brought him the capricious and fascinating Blue, so he’s not complaining. On the contrary, he’s happy, in love, and looking forward to Blue finally moving in with him. And if sometimes he wonders what Blue sees in a boring cartoonist, he keeps that to himself.

Blue Billings is finally ready to throw off the memories of his past and move in with the person who means the most in the world to him. His psychic abilities have grown in the last year to his mentor Tom's consternation, but Blue is determined to look on the bright side. He’s also focused on ignoring all the warning signs that he’s received lately.

However, even deeply buried secrets have a way of rising to the surface. And when a surprise from Blue’s past turns up and draws them away to a lonely house on the Yorkshire moors, Levi and Blue must fight for their survival once again.


I am a Puppet for The Man and a serious smut reader! I cut my teeth on mass market romance lines when I was a teen and now I have graduated to the good stuff. I am happiest spending time with my husband and my two dogs. Normally you will find me combing the virtual bookshelves for the best of Gay Romance, but I'll never say no to a good story no matter who it features. I can't wait to share my favorites with all of you!
