Best selling author Chester Banning enlists the help of a forensic pathologist while doing research for his latest book. Travelling from his home in London up north to Yorkshire Chester arrives a day early and decides to check out the local action at a nearby bar. His hookup with a hot stranger that night is electrifying and over too soon.
Ready the next day to delve into his research questions, Chester is stunned when he’s introduced to the specialist, Dr. Nicholas Sheridan, his nameless bed partner from last night. It’s obvious from the start that Nick doesn’t want to be interviewed, that he wants to be left alone. Chester however is absolutely fascinated with the taciturn doctor. Finding ways to soothe and seduce Nick becomes Chester’s mission because the more he learns of the doctor’s sad past the more he wants to be a part of his future. Getting rid of Nick’s overbearing, controlling boyfriend is the first order of business.
With a dark undercurrent, Knives and Feathers is nonetheless a sexy page turner. Chester and Nick are forced to fight for their love, literally from the moment they meet. The doctor’s past is littered with sadness and trauma, guilt and sorrow. Knives and Feathers relies on Chester’s total faith in a positive future with his lover. Beware, the subject matter touches on self mutilation and self destruction. Ultimately they can triumph, but it’s a long, bumpy road.
