    Oooh the Indian Mutiny. What a brilliant idea for a setting. I enjoyed this a lot. Lovely start with plenty of UST and building attraction, and the practical difficulties of finding space. Nice tension in the escape scenes, loads of passion, great stuff. The second half of the book set in England starts really well also, with a vivid, evocative settling of a very different landscape, and the reunion is all terrific, with Marcus's pride and shame proving a temporarily effective barrier to Jacob's [...]

    Gah!  Another S.A. Meade book that made me cry!  Its like the woman knows just what buttons to push to make me grab the tissues.  While on a visit to India during the Spring of 1857, Lord Jacob Endersley gets stuck there during a mutiny of the local people.  Captain Marcus Billington comes to Jacob’s rescue and the two travel through the safety of darkness to a refugee camp in Agra.  There, they find solace with each other and make every moment last together like there will never be anoth [...]

    This is emotionally really well developed story. I loved it. At the start I didn't really understand why was Jacob in India, but I guess he was travelling and being on a vacation. Jacob & Marcus were an interesting couple. Their deeply evolving emotions are main part of this story. The storyline is written from Jacob point. We could see Marcus point from his behaviour and feelings toward Jacob. Their despair of being apart and wishing they weren't, was a constant part of this story. A reader [...]

    4.5 stars. I don't usually read historical romance but this was very good and well written. I really loved it. I can't wait to read more about Marcus and Jacob.

    3.5 starsNow here’s something rare – I might even say unique!

    This book could have been amazing but for the choice of the main conflict in the plot. Everything else is good: the historical settings, the characters (well, 1.5 main characters), their chemistry, the writing.- The first part of the story takes place in India during the Indian Mutiny in 1857. A English Lord (Endersley) is visiting his cousin in India and he meets and falls in love with Billington, a dashing Captain in the East India Company army. At the time the British presence India was in th [...]

    Relationships are never easy, but one which has to be kept secret is an even harder road to travel. The odds are against Jacob and Marcus from the start, yet they fight to keep this very special love they've nurtured alive. Being with each other almost becomes a compulsion, but one that may destroy them both. What happens when you can't live with someone and you can't live without them? This is the challenge that these two men face as they try to make sense of what could be the best or the worst [...]

    The period of the Indian Sepoy Uprising of 1857 provides an unusual backdrop for this historical romance about a British nobleman visiting the area and an Army officer stationed there. The book opens promisingly, with action, adventure, and sexual tension. Jacob Lord Endersley is an optimist, who will wring the most positive that he can out of any situation, including his attraction to another man. Captain Marcus Billington is much more pressured by social expectations, and is convinced that lov [...]

Just know that I will always love you and will carry the memories to my grave. Don’t forget me.”I was glad that Samir had left me in peace. I held the letter to my chest and wept.S.A.

    'Lord of Endersley' starts in India in the mid 19th century. The natives are getting restless and Captain Billington warns the young Lord Endersley to ignore the official reassurances and flee while he still can. Endersley is gay and decides to take the Captain's advice, as much because he has developed a crush on the officer, with his military bearing and confident manner, as because he believes he is in danger.The more Endersley sees of the Captain, the more he desires him, but homosexuality i [...]

    Review at Brazen Reads: brazenreads/review-lord-of-endersley-by-s-a-meade/I may do a lot of sighing during the course of this review, so bear with me.I discovered the writing of S.A. Meade through our mutual participation in a forum on Absolute Write. She writes exclusively m/m erotic romance, many of which are historical, and after reading a few of her stories I was hooked, which is really saying something, because I’m not a huge fan of historicals.Lord of Endersley, out today, is absolutely [...]

    Review on the behalf of Miz Love and Crew Love Books:mizlovelovesbooks/2012Once I began this novel, I was captured. The author’s style, the elegant romance, the wonderful mix of lavish and gritty settings took me back to my dreamy days of high school when I lost myself in the wonderful worlds of Barbara Cartland and Georgette Heyer. The blurb gives you the plot, I only want to share the beauty of the story and the characters.I loved, loved, loved Jacob Endersley. So gentle, so simple, so passi [...]

    Beautiful Beginning to a Beautiful SeriesA unique twist on the 19th Century British-themed M/M romances, this book kicks off a series that raises an eyebrow or two along the way (to say nothing of baser feelings), but also pulls no punches as to how two men who fall desperately in love can or cannot live together.What helps here is the beautiful development of a story that starts in India and eventually comes home to the English countryside where Jacob Endersley and Marcus Billington confront th [...]

    Really good! I read it in one sitting.I love a good historical and this one is set in India and England in the mid 1800's. The Indian part had me looking up the Sepoy Uprising and the Diwan-i-am to find out more - always a good sign for me if a book kick starts my little gray cells!The balance of power between the two men is interesting - in Indian it is Marcus who, as the army officer, is more take charge. Once back in England, Jacob is more comfortable in who he is and Marcus is more adrift. M [...]

    Really enjoyed this story, much of which is set in India during an uprising. I liked Jacob's voice. Good pacing, believable emotional conflict, and the unusual setting make this a regular re-read for me. Try Lord of Endersley if you enjoy historical M/M, like K.J. Charles's Think of England, Joanna Chambers's Provoked, or the M/M books in the Brothers in Arms series by Samantha Kane.

    I very much enjoyed this historical m/m romance. It's set during a period I'm not all that familiar with (the British Raj) and half set in India. The descriptions of both India and England are top-notchI had a deep sense of where I was at all times.The relationship is interesting and builds within the confines of the society at the time--the men stealing snatches of time here and there, sometimes for nothing more than a kiss or a touch or glance.Very well done, all around.I look forward to readi [...]

    Read this in preparation to Darkness at Endersley - although there is no real need to, I just wanted to get a SA Meade hit in, and 's really, really good; combination of historical accuracy and proper environmental suppression (sexual and weather) had this flying off the page.Strong characters, great attention to detail, thwarted love, big old house,solitude and a good dollop of sex.More erudite review to follow (maybe)

    What can I say? I absolutely loved this book. The characters were attractive and believable and I soon got caught up in the story and their romance. The vivid descriptions of India, in the first part of the book, had me itching to go visit, or at the very least hit the kitchen to knock up some Indian cuisine. I really enjoyed this book and can't wait for more from the author. Excellent.

    I enjoyed this historical romance very much and was pleased with the HEA ending. I am looking forward to the second in the series.

    Interesting read. I loved the Indian setting in the first part of the book; I thought it seemed accurate and believable.I felt like throwing Marcus across the room at times! He seemed overly stubborn about not continuing their relationship once they were back in England. I do understand the difficulty, but Septimus was a local lord and able to command considerable immunity, even in Victorian England, as long as he was circumspect and society could look the other way. Still, all was well that end [...]

    The first part of the book is interesting. The setting is India during an uprising, but I have to admit I am not that familiar with the history so the specifics of it weren't that compelling. I've read other stories of British colonials during uprisings and it seemed accurate enough, but I didn't get much sense of who/what/why from this story. I did like the slow build of the relationship between Endersley and Billington. It did seem realistic that they really had very little time together and n [...]

    4/5 starsThis is a copy from my non pen-name . The actual review is here:/review/show/(I don't double rate.)I very much enjoyed this historical m/m romance.

    The beginning of the attraction was subtle. Actually too subtle. I wasn't even sure why it happened. I think, had their attraction to one another been more explained instead of implied I would have enjoyed the rest of the story more. I did enjoy the story though. And I will be on the look out for the next installment.
