Publisher's Summary

Being a gay man in 1827 is not only frowned upon in England, but punishable by death. Magistrate Simon Stockley would know. He’s convicted men in his courtroom and sentenced them himself. Every time, it leaves a vile taste in his mouth because Simon is no different than the men whose lives he claims. 

Overcompensating for his secret and fearing discovery, Simon walks the straight and narrow with everything he does. Being overly cautious with life is second nature to him. The consequences of being discovered are among his worst fears. Sadly, this is his life, and he accepts it.

Until one cold day in October when James Hansen is led into his courtroom. Blinded by the fire in James’s eyes and the energy seething from his core, Simon’s entire life is thrown upside down. One cursory glance at the criminal, and nothing will ever be the same again.

Problem.

James’ crimes are severe, and his punishment is death. However, there is something about him that Simon can’t put his finger on. Despite all sensibility, Simon can’t let him go. Maybe, some things are worth the risk. Maybe, rules are meant to be broken.

Secrets are wonderful...until someone finds out the truth.

Perfection

This book is simply amazing. People need to give historical romance more of a chance as this book has it all. As usual this book is beautifully written but I don’t expect anything less from Nicky. The research she had to have put into the book clearly shines through.

God James and Simon story is so heartbreaking and beautiful. It’s is story that I both read and listened to the audio is done to perfection. The narrator could not have been any better.

Wonderful!

Oh My Goodness, I absolutely loved this book! First let me say that I have never read a historical romance before, but because Nicky James is one of my favorite authors I just knew it was time to read my first one and I was not disappointed. Simon and Jame's story was just wonderful. Filled with emotion, angst, passion, and a never ending love. It was one of the most romantic stories I have ever read. I was immediately drawn into the story. It was fascinating reading about the time period, the way people communicated, the way the justice system worked, everything was so expertly explained and woven into the story it was like I was transported back in time.
I was riveted to their love story, the almost insurmountable obstacles put in their way and the way their love just stood the test of time. It was simply glorious. I was smiling, I was crying, I was outraged at times--I just felt the gambit of emotions throughout their journey.
I listened to this on audio and this was a new to me narrator. Let me tell you I was captivated with his voice. His cadence, timing, emotion, accent--it was all so spot on. JT Ruddle was simply marvelous and brought life to Simon and Jame's love story!

outstanding performance

THE STORY:
What can I say?? I LOVED IT!!!
Historicals aren't my thing, but this story is so beautifully written (of course it is, we're talking about Nicky James here).
Like all of Nicky's books, this story is classy.
And I did shed a tear or two 😔😢
One can only imagine the extensive research needed to write a book set in the 1800's.
Loved it !! ❤❤

THE NARRATION:
J.T Ruddle is a new to me narrator.
I'm so happy that Mrs. James found an English narrator (not a narrator trying to do an english accent) for this book. JT Ruddle brought this already amazing story to life. I forgot how much I enjoyed this story, having read it 4 years ago.
The narration was perfect!!

A forbidden love

Nicky James is a master of angsts romance. Her characters have to fight for their happy endings. Poor Simon and James have so much standing in their way but eventually they get a happy ending.
I was pleasantly surprised by the narrator JT Ruddle….did a very good job with this audio!
Highly recommend!!!!

Until the End of Time

Wow. This audio really took me by surprise. I don't tend to like historical books but this is Nicky James so I gave it a shot. I'm so glad I did. This book is so full of emotions I don't quite know where to start. I'm not gonna lie and pretend I didn't bawl like a baby at James and Simon's story. I can't even imagine what it would have been like to be told your love is illegal and punishable by death. J.T. Ruddle did a marvelous job with this audio and he really made the characters come to life. I highly recommend this beautiful and haunting love story.

A delightful rollercoaster of emotion!

I absolutely loved this book! The story took me on a journey that made me hold my breath with anticipation, and brought tears to my eyes.

J.T Ruddle's performance was outstanding! He made the experience of listening an absolute joy. He captured the heat and emotion of the storey wonderfully. Having listened to countless books, he is easily one of my favourite narrators.

A wonderful experience all around!

The most beautiful love story of all time

The most beautiful love story of all time.

I'm not a fan of historical romances, but somehow Nicky can write anything and I'd love it.

I loved reading this book and now with the audio it was a whole different experience. I loved listening to James and Simon's story, the voices were so great for both of them and the narrator did a really good job bringing this story to life.

Who doesn't love a love story which can last forever, no matter the time and place. A love story in a time when it was forbidden to love someone in the same gender as you. A love story which could easily be a tragedy.

I have only one word for this book: perfection. This story is so beautiful that it will stay with me forever, until the end of time.

A book that left me speechless

Story: I do not read or listen to a lot of historical romance stories, but this being a Nicky James book had me curious enough to give it a try. What a brilliant decision it was! The story had me absolutely riveted! The emotions, the characters and the setting were spot on! To top it off, the language was brilliantly authentic, building an amazingly complex and wholesome tale of love in times it could be deadly dangerous. The story left me speechless!
Narration: The narrator was amazingly well selected! The voice, the inflection and all the emotions the performance carried forward made this audio a beautiful travel in time.

Heartbreaking

I follow Nicky James. Her stories are always so emotional and true to life. This made me feel like she had insight to the time period. Since being gay was not legal in England until the late nineteen sixties that sets this as probably mild for what really happened. This story broke my heart most of the way through. Living in fear or prison does not make a happy story. I think this author has the ability to take characters of such different class and make them interact naturally. The story flow moved right along. The characters felt totally real to me. The narration by J.T. Ruddle really brings life to these characters. I think this is one of her earliest stories and I’d love to read one from that time period she would write now.
