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.

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.
I really like to listen to Charlie Belmont
I like the way Mr. Belmont does all the characters.
I liked the first book in the series better.
Goodreads reviewer and blogger... also dentist and wife/mom when I get the time!
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.
Audiobook addict by now. ~ I love romances: historicals, suspense and stories about men who loves men (M/M).
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!!
