What Reviewers Are Saying...
4 Angels... "When Alfred and Jason finally get together, it is like magic and Jason finds everything he has been looking for all of his life. Alfred teaches Jason that sometimes the hard things are worth fighting for. Thanks go to Ms. Lamont for a very interesting story." - Teresa, Fallen Angel Reviews
4 Stars... "Ms. Lamont has created a very interesting story incorporating the regency period. It was fascinating to see that modern times may be more advanced, but the treatment of homosexuality is not that different. Alfred accepts his inclinations even though they have caused him pain. Jason feels there is something missing in his life, but he fights his feelings because he knew they will cause him trouble. Alfred teaches Jason that together they may have something that is worth more than anything else in his life. Thanks go to Ms. Lamont for a very interesting story." - Teresa, Rainbow Reviews
5 roses... "Lyndi Lamont has penned a poignant and steamy novella in Finding Jason. The history shared by Jason and Alfred's former lover Michael is both touching and tragic. The obstacles placed in this couple's path are not easily overcome, especially considering the time period in which they live. Ms. Lamont explained the time period's ideas of morality in an interesting and effective manner. Jason and Alfred's relationship developed in a realistic manner considering those moral strictures. Jason's journey of discovery was a compelling tale which I was unable to put down until the satisfactory ending was revealed." - Robin, My Book Cravings
4 Stars from JERR!
"I enjoyed Finding Jason on a number of levels. The story itself is well written with characters [that] are complex and help the plot stay strong. Once he is forced to relive his past, Jason realizes that he is attracted to Alfred, his new valet. Alfred knows that he could love Jason, if only Jason would allow himself to love Alfred. This book also makes clear the intense disapproval of homosexuality in the Regency era in England. Acts of 'sodomy'... are considered crimes against the Crown and punishable by death. Ms. Lamont has done her research and is clear about the dichotomy of sexual behavior; illicit affairs between a man and woman are overlooked, as long as the participants are discreet, but sexual relations between same-sex partners are considered immoral. She does make it clear that such sexual activity is known, it is just totally hidden. Brothels are common, but places such as 'molly-houses' are very secretive. I enjoyed the sexual encounters between the various men very much, while at the same time, feeling sorry for having such urges at a time when the men were considered criminals. Thank you, Ms. Lamont, for a wonderful story" - Marcy Arbitman, Just Erotic Romance Reviews
