Florian is an artist at a porcelain studio, painting mostly birds, but in his spare time he paints on canvas whatever he imagines. His works sell well and he has gained international fame. He’s even received awards from organizations and when one of those associations comes to town to present an award to the company he works for plus a medal for himself, Florian’s life takes a drastic turn he never dreamed would happen.
The problems for Florian are in his home. His stepmother and brother are irrational beyond words. His stepsister Ella has been so cowed by her mother that even Florian thinks Ella is “slow” and must be cared for like a young child. His stepmother shrilly requires that everything be done for her, although everyone except her works outside the home. She is an awful woman.
Deiter, or Count Deiter, comes to town from Germany to present the award and medal to the company and Florian. His gentle, understanding ways cause Florian to fall in love, even though Florian knows Deiter’s stay is short term and nothing permanent can come of a relationship with Deiter.
Florian’s brother Jeremy also works for the porcelain company and does such a poor job that he is eventually fired. When Jeremy blames Florian for his troubles the sparks are lit under an unimaginable conflagration that leads to destruction of many things and people.
When it is time for Deiter to return to Europe a solution to the problem of leaving Florian behind as well as a future for Ella, leading to several happy ever afters and at least one person reaping what he sowed. This is the second book of the St. Giles series but can be read as a stand alone novel. I loved this book and look forward to more stories.
MEMBER OF THE PARANORMAL ROMANCE REVIEW TEAM
Florian Cinderson is the chief designer for Bartholomew Porcelain Studio in St. Giles. If you read book one in this series then you know all about Dante Batholomew and his husband Beau who own the studio. Florian paints birds and when not painting them he goes to the bay to watches them. On the side he also paints nudes of men, not men he has actually seen but men from his imagination until he meets another birdwatcher, Count Dieter von Hollenbach.
Dieter is in from Germany to present an award to the studio an award that was due to Florian’s life-like paintings of birds. When the two meet they find themselves attracted to each other but Dieter is going to return to German and Florian has no idea that he is a Count. All Florian knows is that he wants what Dante and Beau have, love.
Florian’s home life is right out of Cinderella with a mean older brother and a step-sister that his mother uses as her own personal servant. Florian is twenty-two and his prospects for a life filled with love does not seem to be a reality. He knows he has to move out and be on his own but he is hesitant to leave his sister behind with no one to protect her. He realizes that too many years have gone by where he should have been there for Ella but now it is time for him to stand up for himself and her and Dieter helps give him the convidence he needs.
Unfortunately trouble comes in the form of Florian’s older brother who in spite of always being their mother’s favorite has been jealous of Florian’s success. Jeremy blames Florian for everything that goes wrong in his life and never faces that he and he alone is responsible for his failures. His resentment leads to very unexpected circumstances which I will not discuss.
Florian and Dieter hold on to what they have for the short amount of time that Dieter will be in the States and although Florian knows their relationship will end he hungrily grabs hold of whatever joy and happiness he can get for as long as he can.
If you have read Andrew Grey’s books before than you know that they are based on men looking for, and finding love, but is this book going to be a change of pace…………….not saying.I will say that I loved it and Florian and Dieter.
