Brighton in the late 1950s is a place of excitement and danger for Nick and Greg: two teenagers who meet one day after school. The town is their playground, and with all the innocence and recklessness of youth they run through its streets, uncover its secrets and discover their passionate desires for each other.
Gay life thrives in Brighton, but homosexuality is against the law and exists largely behind closed doors, invisible and unspoken. Against this backdrop, Nick seeks to expand his self-awareness through literature and a widening circle of friends. Greg though is constrained by denial, his family ties, and a pattern of increasingly self-destructive behaviour that threatens to unbalance his mind.
In Nick & Greg, John Roman Baker gives a frank, witty and authentic portrait of the lives of two boys growing up in a period when gay liberation was just a fairy tale and Oscar Wilde was a name to be feared more than any monster on a cinemascope screen.
Nick & Greg is the first book in the Nick & Greg series by John Roman Baker.
The Nick & Greg books chart the lives of two friends Nick and Greg from their first meeting at the age of fourteen one afternoon after school in late 1957, through their teenage adventures in the swinging sixties, to young maturity and the gay liberation of the 1970s.
From the outset, despite being against the law, Nick and Greg are sexually uninhibited and adventurous and seek to experience all that life and society have to offer. As time passes they find new friendships and relationship but, like two sides of one coin, they retain an inextricable bond.
Set predominantly in Brighton, the ‘gay capital of England’, the author creates a vivid kaleidoscope of the times, taking in Swinging Sixties London and post-’68 Paris, that includes many cultural reference points notably in gay literature, popular music, film and theatre as well as documenting social and political changes.
A British Tales of the City, Nick and Greg will charm, intrigue, excite and leave you longing for their next adventure.
Everyone in Highley eagerly anticipates the arrival of Reginald Abernathy, the new master of Albon Manor. Everyone, that is, except Lord William Bascomb. William knows he’ll be expected to woo Reginald’s sister, and he can’t summon the interest for it. But when the Abernathys arrive at last, William discovers he’s interested after all—in Reginald. Reginald is the most handsome, most dashing, most intriguing man he’s ever known. Better yet, he seems to share William’s preference for men.
The addition of the Abernathys to Highley suits everyone. William’s sister adores Reginald’s, Aunt Harriet foresees many happy matches between the two families, William’s sister-in-law is pleased at the prospect of unloading her penniless relatives at last, and all the eligible ladies in Highley want the man who only has eyes for William.
Against a backdrop of elegant balls and frolicking picnics, William and Reginald enjoy furtive moments of ecstasy until a scandal erupts, forcing William to choose between Reginald and the only life he’s ever known.
See how many matches Aunt Harriet can make in this low-angst, warm and fuzzy Jane Austen-inspired M/M Regency romance.

Marshall Lloyd is about to be very not fine. Not only is his high school crush back in his life, but he’s matured into a gruff, brooding, drop-dead-gorgeous specimen of a man that makes Marshall’s wet dreams seem about as exciting as drying paint. The only problem: Fox Fraser, the individual in question, is straight.
The kind of straight that would make a ruler jealous.
But if what Marshall sees when he looks in Fox’s eyes is to be believed, he’s broken, too. There are scars inside of him that no one notices. No one but Marshall. It’s not wrong to want to help him, is it? To hire him to take care of things around the house so he can get back on his feet? It’s just work. Work that leads to lingering looks. To prolonged touches. To… mmph. It’s better not to think about it. Marshall’s fantasies aren’t real. A guy like Fox would never pin him to a wall and do things to him like that.

Veterinarian Garland Sands has returned from Europe to take over his father’s practice.
