Summary

London, 1822

Impoverished Julian Parker returns to London with one goal: marry an heiress. He'll do whatever it takes, even if it means denying his desire for men. After all, with a fortune comes happiness and social acceptance - which have eluded Julian his entire life.

The only things a vast fortune has brought Oscar Woodhaven are greedy relatives and loneliness. At 21 years of age, he has everything a man could possibly want—except someone to love him. When he meets devastatingly handsome Julian Parker, he believes his luck has turned.

Between Oscar's lavish gifts and their searing-hot nights, Julian is caught between what he thinks he needs and what his heart truly desires. But when a betrayal threatens to tear them apart, Julian discovers he'll do whatever it takes to convince Oscar the greatest fortune of all is love.

Nice, Sweet Romance

I would give the story 3.5 stars and the narrator 5 stars. This is a really sweet MM romance set in gothic England. I didn't like it as much as the first book, but it was enjoyable. The only issue I had is the HFN ending; I like HEA. It was a little unsatisfying. I found myself saying, but what now?. The length of the novella does not warrant a credit, but it is a good on sale read.

Really enjoyed! Great narration,

Ava March is just a master at historical romance. Even though I thought that I was going to 2 or 3 star this up until 50% of the way through the book, Ava March turned things around and made me love this one.

First of all, props to Charlie Belmont, who narrated this book LIKE A BOSS. I really adored his narration, and I'll be looking for more audiobooks from him in the future.

This book started out difficult for me because Julian was such a user-McUser-face. I wanted to bitch slap him, like for REAL. However, Julian just turns the whole thing around near the end, and I was a mushy-gooey pile in the palm of Ava March's hand. Love her.

Sure, this wasn't as hot or kinky as other books from this author, but I love a good redemption story. This was a quick and VERY satisfying listen.

3 1/2 Stars for a pretty charming historical

I like these short very romantic, quite steamy, audiobooks in this series. Heartwarming nice stories for dark winter listenings days. Pleasant narrated as well. - Another little gem.

On to the third part.

I LIKE - sweet M/M romances!!

It could have been so good...

This book frustrated me *so much*, with it's toxic classist hypocrisy and the complete disconnect between what the narrative asserted as truth about the characters versus what their actions said about them.

Good but unsatisfying ending sort of a cliffhanger

Fortune Hunter is a good read and good continuation in the Brook Street series . Charlie Belmont as it's narrator make this listen memorable. I could listen him for hours . As for the story it self, I was entertained but not really mesmerized as with the first book. The heroes of this story weren't particularly likeable or intriguing . I was more interested in hearing about Benjamin and Calvin relationship from book 1. Also, this book has an abrupt ending, that it's immensely unsatisfying. I will listen to book 3 , to have some type of closure.
