Blurb: Ichabod Crane, town schoolmaster and self-proclaimed supernatural expert, wants to better his situation by marrying the wealthy Katrina Van Tassel. But, there is a rival for her attentions.
Local hero, Brom Bones.
Brom lives to torment and tease Ichabod, leaving the schoolmaster wondering if he is more interested in besting his rival than winning Katrina’s hand. Especially when each time Ichabod goes into the backroom of his favorite tavern – a place men can be men –his imagination conjures Brom’s face on every lover.
Late one night, Ichabod is chased by the legendary Headless Horseman. Terrified the ghost wants his head, he tries to outrun the specter. To his horror, he is taken captive by the evil spirit.
Ichabod awakens, naked and tied to a bed, only to discover the Headless Horseman is none other than his rival Brom Bones! Brom confesses that Ichabod has been haunting his own fantasies and he vows to make Ichabod Crane his in every way.
Ichabod wants to believe the pleasure Brom offers comes from his heart, but he is afraid it is another one of Brom’s tricks.
Though surely an enemy’s touch has never felt like this…
Review: A fun and sexy twist on the old story. I always enjoy when new life is given to familiar stories, especially when it includes sexy men exploring their kinks and finding love.
Ichabod was so starchy and self contained. I loved watching him lose his tightly held control. Brom has been driving him slowly and surely mad with his constant needling, digs, pranks and by always getting the best of him no matter the situation. It was so much fun watching him come apart for Brom.
Brom was such a delightful combination of contradictions. It was oddly sweet to learn how he had seen their interactions and his motivation for all he did to poor Ichabod. He was a tender master who was as enthralled as his submissive lover. They were incredibly hot together.
There were some intense and sweet moments where the balance of power that they fought so hard to control became blurred and they were able to just fall into their passion.
The sex in this story is smoking hot and even better the story of these two very different men moving from antagonistic enemies to lovers to even more is fun, sweet and a little beautiful. The extra little twists that come into play made this story a fast, sexy, and deeply enjoyable read.
