Summary: With the guilt of his sister's death hanging over him, Lord St. Gryff embarks on a treacherous adventure impersonating his sister not realizing that the subterfuge will forever change his life when he meets the dark and mysterious Lord Snape. As he finds himself falling more and more for the enigmatic man, the fear that the lies their relationship is built on will come crashing down increases.

Scorned by society for wartime actions that no one for sure knows are true, Lord Snape has no recourse but to marry a proper young lady and beget an heir as quickly as possible. When his some times ally but most times enemy suggests the sister of a friend who might understand his peculiar preferences, he thinks he's found the answer, but has he?

Additionally, I owe a debt to Granada Television, the late Jeremy Brett, David Burke, Edward Hardwicke, Sherlock Holmes and Dr John Watson for keeping me sane during the process. And last, but definitely not least, to the [info]snarry_games mods, massive thanks for your patience again and your willingness to extend my deadline to the outer limits.
