Jaded lord, stalwart cop, instant attraction.
Lord Avery Wickersham wakes from a night’s debauchery at a bordello to police officers pounding on the bedroom door. During the vice raid, Constable Connor Tate is ready to arrest the lord and his two male sex partners when Avery’s glib tongue earns a reprieve for his friends if not for himself.
From this grim beginning, men as opposite as summer and winter slowly work their way to an unexpected spring. Avery is ripe for a change in his aimless life, while Connor struggles between duty and desire. Overwhelming passion takes them by storm, but can a rush of lust evolve into love when their lives are so different?
While Avery attempts altruism by volunteering at a charity mission, Connor uncovers government corruption and an evil man who brings torture and death to his victims. The duo join forces to try to stop the killer, but when one of the lovers faces peril, their time may run out.
Warning: Contains a scene of abuse and torture.
REVIEW by Christopher Hawthorne Moss
A serious, no-nonsense ,and thoroughly earnest police officer and a silly and supercilious aristocrat make this another Bonnie Dee romance that is both highly entertaining and thoroughly charming. As the blurb describes, Lord Avery meets Tate, the policeman, when the latter arrests him and his companions in a bordello. Avery manages to convince the policeman to let his friends go, but he himself winds up in a cell at Newgate. Being an aristocrat he is bailed out soon enough, but in the meantime the policeman and he are getting it on. When one of the men Avery got released at the bordello turns up having been abused by a villainous fellow, Avery and Tate decide to look into the matter. Well, to be honest Tate manages to look into it, while Avery uses his extrajudicial abilities and money to do a little subtle soliciting. This proves helpful since the bad guy turns out to be connected to city government and the police. It will be up to your persistent reading to discover whether Avery and Tate can make a life together that frees the copper but fulfills the aristocrat.
