- The Mentor of Lostwood Hall
"A man with a future he can't accept and a lad with a past he can't escape."
Two men in a storm-battered castle harbouring secrets and hopes unknowingly guide each other to an unexpected friendship that turns to passionate love.
Julian Ford's life is at a crossroads. Thirty-four, disillusioned with his screenwriting career and cheated by love, he craves the chance of isolation at his rambling home in the Welsh mountains, Lostwood Hall. But when 21-year-old Lee Benson survives a car crash, Julian has no choice but to take him in.
Their pasts collide, bringing a storm of doubts, fears, a jealous ex-lover and a dangerous thug seeking revenge. Is Julian and Lee's fledgeling relationship strong enough to survive? And do they trust each other enough to escape death?
The Mentor of Lostwood Hall is the fourth in Jackson Marsh's 'Mentor' collection of older/younger MM romance.
