Book Description

Duncan has been Sir William's squire for two years. During that time, he has lusted after and been in love with the beautiful muscular knight. Too bad Sir William prefers fair maidens...

Sir William is called home due to the impending death of his father. On the journey, he catches his squire watching other men having sex and realizes Duncan is also ready for some love play. Once they reach the family's estates, William and Duncan begin an affair of both body and heart. But the happiness they find together is short-lived when the king dictates that William must marry a suitable heiress.

Unable to bear his place beside William and his wife, Duncan flees. Can William find the squire to convince him their love is meant to be?

"4 STARS!...a lovely story by author Shawn Lane and I found the characters to be quite delightful. Both William and Duncan were likeable and obviously cared a lot for each other. The sex was very passionate and sensual and the author packed a lot of action in this very short book. I would recommend THE SQUIRE to anyone looking for a great read whether or not historicals are your favourite genre."--Jessewave, Reviews By Jessewave

5.0 out of 5 stars Arousing Love Story June 1, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition
Loved these two characters: horny, sexy aritocrat wins and bangs his lusty late teens squire. Then reality steps in when the King bades the lord to marry and the squire realizes he can't live within that situation for his lover. Won't give away the ending, but the story and the erotic scenes are sexy and largely credible, considering they were written by a 21st century romance writer rather than a historian or 12th century letter writer. Got quite charged up in the erotic scenes and easily felt the pain of the boy in the late scenes. Ending not entirely credible, but acceptable to the reading audience. Fun time; don't expect historical accuracy and you will not be disappointed. Enjoy the romance!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Squire by Shawn Lane April 5, 2009
By Elisa
Format:Kindle Edition
Duncan is Sir William's squire. Duncan is 18 years old but he is not "grown" like the other squires of same age. He is little and pretty, almost too pretty to be a man. And he is in love with his knight, Sir William. Duncan has yet to experiment sex, with women or men alike, but he dreams everynight of William and when he accidentally spies another squire making love with a man, he realizes that also him, who likes men, can physically love. But he still desires only William, who apparently only has female lovers.

Sir William is a 27 years old young man. He is very handsome and has his fair share of lovers. He is not against the idea to make love to a man, but actually it'is more simple to be with a woman. But his young squire is a pretty thing to look at, and now that Duncan starts to be interested in the sexual side of love, he is ready to pick up the "blushing virgin".

The story is very short, less than 45 pages, but it's a funny romp. Not very historical detailed, it's more a little piece of savage romance, with the twist of the maiden virgin becomes a virgin squire. Even if Duncan is a man, he is not a very good squire, and probably he is not ready, and never will, to be a knight. He is the classical omega man, always in trouble and always in need to have a firm hand to direct him.

The story faces the problem of the social status of William, and of his due toward his title: as first and only son, he is expected to marry and produce an heir. something that obviously Duncan couldn't give him...

If you don't expect to read a "strong" historical romance, but are happy to enjoy a short and funny tale, The Squire is a light one. Duncan is the real only main character, William is more an icon, the dream lover of young Duncan.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Squire February 18, 2009
By MNix
Format:Kindle Edition
Being in love with someone you can't have is torture, but to experience what it's like to be with that someone you love only to find he's to marry someone else is a fate worst than death. This is the plight of Squire Duncan. Duncan is in love with his knight, Sir William, he never believed William to be interested in men until William showed him otherwise. With William commanded by the king to marry another, Duncan knows he cannot remain his squire and watch him love someone else.

The Squire is an entertaining story. Duncan is sweet and quite naïve. It's very understandable why William feared he would be taking advantage of Duncan if he pursued his interest in him, but I'm happy he got over that and pursued him anyways. Readers who enjoy historical stories with an erotic twist should pick up The Squire today.
