Summary

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.

Working class cop finds happiness

4.5 -5 stars for story and 5 stars for narration.

A gritty story in a most realistic historical setting. I am constantly amazed at how humans treat each other never changes. This story is set in 1898 London and the atrocities of how children and the poor are treated sounds about as terrible as Trump's USA in 2019.

I love historicals that are true to the period in every way possible. As I didn't live during those times, I don't know if stories like this with two men could actually happen? Some M/M historicals are all about fancy living with titles and manners and wealth being front and center. This story is more about the lower classes and how they fare. Somehow it seems both harder because trying to eek out a living is paramount and having time for love is a fairy tale. Somehow the aristocrat is persistent enough and makes the copper realize he can have happiness.

Ms. Dee makes it all plausible. I look forward to reading many more of her works.

Great Story, why no sequel?

This is an excellent story with excellent character development in a great setting. In my opinion, these characters would be great through at least one sequel.

Not as good as other books by Bonnie Dee

The love of the main characters was not very beliable .... it was more obsession with rejection. The narrator has a very interesting voice very sloooow for this book but he does have great skill and experience , may be another book and I would love this narrator . He was good, that keped me listening .
