In medieval England, duty is everything, personal honor is more valued than life itself, and homosexuality is not tolerated by the church or society.
Sir Christian Brandon was raised in a household where he was hated for his unusual beauty and for his parentage. Being smaller than his six brutish half-brothers, he learned to survive by using his wits and his gift for strategy, earning him the nickname the Crow.
Sir William Corbett, a large and fierce warrior known as the Lion, has pushed his unnatural desires down all his life. He's determined to live up to his own ideal of a gallant knight. When he takes up a quest to rescue his sister from her abusive lord of a husband, he's forced to enlist the help of Sir Christian. It's a partnership that will test every strand of his moral fiber, and, eventually, his understanding of the meaning of duty, honor, and love.

Dramatic, Moving, Exciting
I loved both William and Christian, but if forced to pick one I suppose it's Christian. He was so determined to do whatever was needed to prove his love and admiration.
He brought the book to life and his voice was perfect for this historical story.
There were several, but the epilogue had me shedding a few tears.
It's not often that a book will move me to tears, but the wonderful story and excellent narration did just that. I cannot recommend this highly enough and I know I will listen again. Without doubt one of the best books I have listened to!

Great book, poor narrator
Maybe Greenwode by J Tullos Hennig. They're both very moving and with excellent male leads.
I suppose he tried, but on the whole, I found his narration disappointing
It certainly was.
This is a well written and very moving historical romance with two strong male protagonists. I've never had this author before but I'll definitely be on the lookout for more. The only disappointment was the narrator and his inability to pronounce simple words. Castle was sometimes pronounced with either a long or short voul sound, shone became shown, clash became clarsh. That was weird. Still, if you can get past that, it's a book well worth reading.
