strip naked and left to die tied to a tree, Will never
expected anyone to come save him, and never expected his
savior to steal his heart. If truth were known, Will was
halfway in love from the moment Jackson held his battered
and weary body in his arms. In the short time they spent
together in an abandoned goat herderís hut while Jackson
nursed him back to health, Will knew he belonged to this
knew Will was from noble birth without having to ask him.
Everything about him was out of Jacksonís league. Having
nothing to offer someone of Willís nobility, Jackson allowed
his pride to prevent him for having a future with Will.
the man he loved safely behind Jackson set out to answer his
fatherís call to come to Baymore Castle. This being the
first time his father, the Duke of Baymore, has ever
summoned him. Jackson holds out little hope that it is to
acknowledge him as his son, therefore giving him what he
needs to return to Will as more than a bastard son and a
killer for hire.
Jacksonís Pride, the second book in Lynn Lorenzís
In The Company of Men series, follows along the lines of
the first installment. Jackson was first introduced to us
in Mercenary Tales and I love that his story picks up
where his character ended in the prior book. Will and
Jackson both are very strong characters; I like them but
wished they had more tender moments together. I also would

shocked by his death because I had a strong belief he would
be around for awhile. Aside from that Jacksonís Pride
is a great read. I enjoyed it and I hope Ms. Lorenz
have more stories planned for this series.
