Lord Benjamin Parker thinks he might prefer the company of men. He can only think because he’s never actually experienced it. But he’s learned there’s a place he can go to pick up a guy. And he tells himself he will give it one chance. Much to his surprise, he picks up the gorgeous Cavin Fox. He soon finds that one night with Cavin is not enough. He needs and wants more.
For Cavin, this is like any other night. He’ll his mark, flirt with him, and get him alone. He’ll spend the night with him, but then make off with his cash before the sun comes up. And that’s his plan when he first meets Benjamin. But there’s something about this gentleman that Cavin didn’t expect. And he finds that robbing him just doesn’t feel right.
To make matters worse for Cavin, circumstances bring him face-to-face with Benjamin again. The goal is to never run into a mark again. And even though Benjamin doesn’t know what Cavin’s plan was, it’s still a risk and it’s uncomfortable. Benjamin makes it clear he wants to pursue something more with Cavin. Cavin’s not exactly opposed to the idea, but he knows it can’t be. There’s no way Benjamin could accept Cavin if he knew what he did for a living. And there’s the issue of trying to escape the leader of Cavin’s gang. The chances that things will work out for them are slim. But they met in a gambling establishment, so neither is averse to games of chance…
Regency gay romance? Sign me up. And these two guys…I just can’t get enough. Their interactions, their feelings for each other, and their…well..private moments are so well written. I felt immersed in the story on every page. I definitely give this a solid recommendation!
