London, 1822

Two of London’s most notorious rakehells, Linus Radcliffe and Robert Anderson, are the best of friends. They share almost everything–clothes, servants, their homes, and even each other’s bed on occasion. The one thing they don’t share: lovers. For while Linus prefers men, Robert prefers women…except when it comes to Linus.

As another Season nears its end, Robert can’t ignore his growing jealousy. He hates watching Linus disappear from balls to dally with other men. Women are lovely, but Linus rouses feelings he’s never felt with another. Unwilling to share his gorgeous friend another night, Robert has a proposition for Linus.

A proposition Linus flatly refuses–but not for the reasons Robert thinks. Still, Robert won’t take no for an answer. He sets out to prove a thing or two to his best friend–yet will learn something about the heart himself.

The Review:

Ava March’s Brook Street: Rogues is a heartwarming and extremely sexy historical novella. Linus Radcliffe and Rob Anderson are longtime friends who also have a “friends with benefits” relationship. But sudden jealousy and a desire for a committed relationship threatens to destroy their friendship.

For such a close and longstanding friendship, neither Rob nor Linus knows the other man as well as they think they do. Rob does not understand his sudden jealousy of Linus’s casual dalliances and he rashly proposes an exclusive relationship. Linus harbors strong emotions for Rob and his fear of losing their friendship keeps him from accepting Rob’s proposition. His refusal forces Rob to examine his feelings for Linus and the motivations behind his desire to change their relationship.

A perfect blend of sweet romance and hot sex, Brook Street: Rogues is a quick read with charming and likable protagonists. It is a delightful and satisfying conclusion to Ava March’s Brook Street trilogy.

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 twenty-one 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.

The Review:

Ava March’s Brook Street: Fortune Hunter is a beautifully detailed Regency romance that is deliciously steamy and sexy. Penniless and untitled, Julian Parker is counting on his good looks and family connections to snare a wealthy wife. His newfound friendship with the wealthy Oscar Woodhaven assures his place in society, but will their love affair derail his marriage plans?

Julian and Oscar are delightful protagonists that are well-developed and immensely appealing. Coming for two divergent backgrounds, both men are ultimately searching for the same thing. Someone to love them for who they are not their bank accounts. However, both men need the time to mature and come to terms with who they are before they can have a successful relationship.

Oscar is a sweet and very likeable young man whose generosity is well-known among his friends and acquaintances. His loneliness and social isolation add to his naiveté and innocence and he eagerly accepts Julian’s friendship. He quickly opens his home, his bed and his heart to Julian.

Julian is also a wonderfully developed character whose affable façade masks his less than desirable characteristics. While he is not a malicious man, his laziness and selfishness unintentionally deeply wound the more tenderhearted Oscar. It takes a lot of hard work on his part, but in the end, he marvelously redeems himself and saves his relationship with Oscar.

Brook Street: Fortune Hunter is a fast-paced and engrossing story. Ava March brings a great deal of depth and substance but very little angst to this second installment of her Brook Street trilogy. It is an enjoyable romance that is filled with emotion and plenty of hot man on man action that fans of male/male historical romances are sure to enjoy.

The Review:

With historical, supernatural ménage, western, and witty contemporary novellas to choose from, the Men Under the Mistletoe anthology offers a diverse collection of male/male holiday themed romances from four gifted authors. Reuniting lovers is the underlying theme of these heartwarming and very sexy stories.

Ava March’s My True Love Gave to Me is a gut wrenching second chance at love historical romance. Afraid of his feelings and what society and his family will think of their unconventional relationship, Thomas Bennett abandons Alexander Norton for four years.

My True Love Gave to Me is filled with anguish, love and lust as Thomas proves he is willing to do whatever it takes to win Alexander’s forgiveness. A wonderful story that takes the protagonists (and readers) through a wide range of emotions and some very steamy sex scenes!

White Knights takes a supernatural twist that proves very illuminating for Gavin Lowden following his breakup with longtime boyfriend Piers. Harper Fox’s richly detailed storytelling engages the reader in this dramatic and mystical novella. Gavin is a flawed yet sympathetic protagonist whose unexpected encounter with two rescue workers provides him new insight into his relationship with Piers. Exceptional character development, a unique storyline and a remarkable epilogue make White Knights a standout read.

Josh Lanyon’s Lone Star is a beautifully written story with a delightful down home feel. When Mitch Evans returns to Texas after a twelve year absence, he discovers that, sometimes, you really can go home again. Especially when you have a sexy Texas Ranger like Web Eisley waiting for you.

Mitch’s visit to his home town is a bittersweet reflection of his life past and present. It is a time of regret for words left unspoken. It is a lesson in learning from his past mistakes. Most importantly Lone Star is a sweet yet moving romance that will melt your heart as Mitch and Web find their way back to one another.

K.A. Mitchell’s The Christmas Proposition reunites Mel Halner and Bryce Campion for their mutual friends’ wedding at Mel’s Christmas tree farm. The passion between the ex-lovers burns hotter than ever but will they find a way to stay together after the wedding?

The Christmas Proposition is a humorous and sexy novella with a superb cast of characters. Mel and Bryce are well-drawn likeable protagonists. Their smokin’ hot chemistry leads to some very erotic and incendiary sex scenes. The dynamics between Mel and his family are realistic and provide additional depth to the story. The Christmas tree farm is the perfect backdrop for this charming second chance at love romance.

Men Under the Mistletoe is a marvelous anthology that is guaranteed to heat up your holiday season. Although the stories are available individually, I highly recommend the entire anthology.
