Taken from a brothel at the age of thirteen, Claude becomes servant to a family of wealthy, dysfunctional aristocrats. But when most of the servants move on and both his mistress and beloved master die, the half-Chinese butler is left to serve the prodigal son, Antoine. Through the years, the pair become closer, even going so far as to spend an intimate night together, but when the revolution comes, they find themselves driven out of their homeland to Germany. Now with only each other, Claude and Antoine embark on a relationship that far exceeds the one of master and servant…

Gerard and Jacques

Gerard and Jacques

Following his father’s death, young aristocrat Jacques is sold to a high-class brothel. His first client is Gerard Anglade, a commoner who made his wealth by writing pornographic novels; and he just so happens to despise the upper class. After having his way with the unwilling noble, Gerard buys the lad’s freedom, expecting to never see him again, that is until Jacques begins working as a servant at his home. As the pair spends more time together, Jacques begins to realise that maybe his employer isn’t really the abominable cad he seems to be; but could it be that he cares more for the flirtatious author than he realises?

Both Gerard & Jacques and Lovers in the Night are stories about romantic relationships between French Aristocrats and their servants. Both are also by Fumi Yoshinaga, so if you like her art style and the tone fo her work, then you are bound to enjoy both of these.


Both are set in that glorious powdered-wig, breeches-and-tricorne-hat combo of a time, the 1700s. The men in these yaois are refined gentlemen, and their love is technically "forbidden", yet at the same time it's full of love and mutual understanding between the series' respective lovers. If you like historical fictional gay romance, these are the two series to pick up.
