Then Jim’s arms were around his neck, and Jim pulled him into a deep kiss. Mark surrendered to the kiss, careful because he could still feel the remnants of the fever in Jim’s hot lips and slightly uncoordinated movements.
I really enjoyed this story. I have not read the previous books in the series, but I don't feel as though I was missing anything by reading this one first.
This book is set in Australia in 1876 so it is definitely a historical. I am not normally a fan of those, but I really got into this one. The story starts out with Matt and Jim in the gallows so from the beginning I was intrigued. I will definitely be going back and reading the rest of the series soon. Jack Byrne certainly caught my attention with his writing and I will revisit his work!
