Ava March. Harlequin/Carina, $4.99 e-book (106p) ISBN 978-1-4268-9342-1
In the briskly paced opening of the Brook Street trilogy, March (Bound Forever) explores a secretive world of early 1820s London gentlemen who search for same-sex romance. Taking his first shy steps into the society of men who prefer men, Lord Benjamin Parker is delighted by the handsome Cavin Fox, unaware that Cavin makes his living by seducing and robbing noblemen. Cavin is unwilling to steal from sweet, beautiful Benjamin and unable to forget their night of passion. As Cavin plots his escape from the thief and procurer who has commanded him from boyhood, he is forced to turn to Benjamin for aid in rescuing Cavin’s teen protégé, Sam. Despite occasional carelessness with the historical details, March neatly balances erotic moments with the budding friendship and romance between the proudly independent Cavin and the nervous but eager Benjamin in a charming and spicy novella that will leave readers impatient for more.
