Review: Jon by Hollis Shiloh

JonJon by Hollis Shiloh
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A touching and romantic novella!

Govan is from the north. He doesn't approve of the slavery that goes on around him and has no desire to ever own another man. When he sees Jon being beaten by his owner, Govan can't help but feel a pull towards the waiflike slave.

He longs to free Jon but at the same time, Govan's attraction to the man is so strong he can't imagine ever letting him go.

Damaged by his past, Jon doesn't understand Govan's kindness but can't help but feel safe around the gentle innkeeper.

With a world of differences between them, will Jon and Govan find their way to love, or will Jon's vengeful owner destroy their chance at happiness?

Jon is a well written short story with characters that pulled at my heartstrings from the very first page. Another wonderful tale from one of my favorite authors; I always enjoy Hollis' imaginative worlds and happy endings!

Adult themes including physical abuse and descriptive sexual encounters make this story appropriate for adult audiences only.
