Thank you Joyfully Jay for having me over today. In my story, SWEET WILLIAM, William is confident, secure in himself and his place in the world. Today, I thought we’d have him list a few of the things he’s afraid of.

1. One of my family’s ships being intercepted by pirates. It wouldn’t be due to any fault of mine, but father would lay the blame on me all the same.

2. Not being taken seriously by my business partners because of my youth.

3. That my lovers are only with me because of my wealth.

4. That Freddie will be disgusted by my many past love affairs and want nothing more to do with me.

5. I want Freddie to live with me on my mother’s plantation. I hope he won’t find it boring after city life.

6. No one has guessed it, but I have a ridiculous fear of spiders.

7. I also have an inconvenient fear of heights.

8. Mother passed away when I was a child. Now I fear losing others that I love.

9. Since Freddie is alone in the city with few friends, I worry about his safety.

10. I fear catching one of the fevers that sweep the city and die before I’ve had my chance with Freddie.


Sweet-William_600x956William Wilkerson leads the life of the privileged rich. Head of his father’s shipping business, he indulges to his heart’s content in the pleasures of the flesh with Boston’s finest young men.

That is, until he reunites with Fredrick: his former tutor and the one man who captured his heart.

But William’s father has declared Fredrick off limits. And Fredrick, himself, believes he’s beneath the attention of the Wilkerson heir.

After having lost his current pupil to graduation, and with no prospects of a replacement, Frederick is homeless, hungry, and easy pickings for the men on the docks.

When Frederick is shanghaied into service on William’s own merchant ship, will William discover his plight in time to rescue him?
