My rating: 5 of 5 stars
London, 1822. It was only supposed to be one night. One night to determine once and for all if he truly preferred men. But the last thing Lord Benjamin Parker expected to find in a questionable gambling hall in Cheapside is a gorgeous young man who steals his heart.
It was only supposed to be a job. Cavin Fox has done it many times—select a prime mark, distract him with lust, and leave his pockets empty. Yet when Cavin slips away under the cover of darkness, the only part of Benjamin he leaves untouched is his pockets.
With a taste of his fantasies fulfilled, Benjamin wants more than one night with Cavin. But convincing the elusive young man to give them a chance proves difficult. Cavin lives with a band of thieves in the worst area of London, and he knows there's no place for him in a gentleman's life. Yet Benjamin isn't about to let Cavin—and love—continue to slip away from him.
This book wouldn't let me go. I started reading it late one night. Just a few pages, I thought, until I fell asleep. Two hours later, at 2am I was still awake enjoying this captivating romantic read. I kept turning "just one more" page until I reached the end. I simply couldn't stop until Benjamin and Cavin found their happily-ever-after. And these two men definitely deserved it! After all that they'd been through, they deserved to find happiness in each other's arms.
This is an lovely erotic romance between two men during the Regency Era. One is discovering for the first time where his passions lie and another is finding true love for the very first time. Their encounter with each other changes both of them in different but significant ways. The rest of the story is about how they come to terms with those changes and what to do about it. I loved these characters! They were well-written and really drew me into the story.
I definitely enjoyed reading this book! This is the first book I've read by this author, but I'll be reading more from Ms. March if this is the beautiful, tear-jerking prose she is accustomed to writing. I've already added the rest of the Brook Street Trilogy to my TBR list. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants a sweet, passionate, charming romantic tale.
