Working at his father's inn serving the guests one night, Ben locks eyes with one of the patrons. He's the stuff of his romantic dreams, he can't keep his eyes off him. A romantic tryst leads to more clandestine moments. When danger strikes, Ben is worried his dream have turned into a nightmare.

With a nod to Alfred Noyes poem "The Highwayman", the author has scripted her own version with a m/m twist. It's a nicely done erotic spin on a familiar theme. I liked the setting and the time period was an extra treat. I also liked Ben and his "highwayman", their connection strong emotionally and sexually. The story flows from chapter to chapter smoothly holding my interest. There's intrigue, angst and some heady sexual encounters wrapped up neatly with a very nice ending. Told from Ben's point of view, you get a good rapport with his character. I like this author's style of writing, it's very descriptive pulling you into the story and that's a good thing. All in all it was a decent read.
