Drake is a mercenary who has never been in love. He finds love for the first time in a most unexpected form, that of another man. While he likes women, his attraction to Ansel is overpowering and immediate. He struggles against his desires. Will his feelings be reciprocated?
The Mercenary's Tale is actually two love stories in one. Drake suffers heartbreak and must struggle to find joy in living again. I found this to be a very well written emotional love story. It was my first foray into this genre, and I really admire the authors' ability to write a story that pulls the reader in.
The characters were well defined and believable. I had no problem believing the way events unfolded. The physical expressions of emotion were also very well portrayed. Drakes journey into really living and loving was a truly great read. I recommend this unreservedly, and would like to read more from this author.

When Drake first looked into Ansel's blue eyes, he found himself breaking his own rules. Despite his better judgment, he agreed to let the young mercenary travel with him to the battle at Foray. Their travels become a journey of sexual discovery, love, and, ultimately, on the battlefield at Foray, loss.
Two years later, Drake is called to be Master of Arms at Marden Castle. Drake can handle that, but he can't handle Logan, the Duke of Marden.
Logan's green eyes, long blond hair, and boyish charm make Drake feel things he'd rather keep buried. But if Drake can open his heart again, he'll find everything he's never wanted and always needed: a home, a son, and a man to love and who loves him.
