As the youngest son of a noble family, Alan Maitland had three prospects open to him: the Church, the military, or politics. But the moment he stepped onto the manicured quadrangle of his Oxford college, he decided he would never leave. His pay as a Music Master is modest, but as a bachelor, all his needs are met…except for a falsetto in his choir.
He’s enchanted by the voice of “Syl Dill,” yet bizarrely attracted to the young man.
Their feelings are mutual, but how can Lady Sylvia reveal herself without a scandal?
