This is a smorgasbord of master and servant erotica, some of it a little bland but some of it quite delectable. Dates aren’
t mentioned in all of them, but they all feel rather turn of the century or very early 20th century in detail.

Downton Abbey meets Upstairs, Downstairs… with enough sex to make the town vicar blush

English country houses, mystery and intrigue, sex and money—all go hand in hand in Men of the Manor, a collection of
dizzyingly sexy encounters featuring randy aristocrats, eager stable boys and devoted footmen.

Does the aristocrat drop his grand manners when his manservant helps him undress? What happens behind the gilded
door to a decadent party full of squiffy men on the make? And do the upstairs and downstairs chaps exchange more
than pleasantries when the lamps are dimmed, the candles snuffed out and the ladies retire for the evening?

Felice Picano’s grateful houseboy writes a thank-you note to his patron, which reads like a Victorian Kinsey Report in
“Folly’s Ditch.” Landon Dixon’s salacious tale of blackmail and “passing the queer” leads to mutual satisfaction in
“Chauffeur’s Hole.” The new driver and an underbutler stick it up their boss’s jumper in Logan Zachary’s “Front Door,
Back Door.” Rob Rosen has gathered a daring and steamy gallery of wealthy aristocrats and strappingly handsome
staff for your reading pleasure.
