Publisher's Summary

From New York Times best-selling author Deidre Knight, writing as Cooper Davis, comes a thrilling new romance series set in an alternative Victorian world, where gentlemen may openly court and marry fellow noblemen....

Alistair Finley has spent years concealing the truth of his illegitimacy. The bastard son of the late king and half brother to the man who now occupies the throne, Alistair fears ruination. He has never allowed himself love or companionship. Until he meets the handsome young Lord Marcus Avenleigh. Marcus has spent two years attempting to gain the notice of the king's shy secretary. Tempting Alistair out of the shadows and into his bed, however, proves a daunting task. The self-proclaimed spinster has made a profession of decorating the wings of every social gala, denying Marcus and every other eligible bachelor a formal introduction.

When Lady Elsevier's annual ball presents a daring moment, Marcus invites Alistair to waltz. What Marcus can't know is that his would-be paramour has chosen drink and the life of a lonely bachelor above ever risking his heart or his king's own reputation. He's bound in lies and secrecy, and the past must never, ever be revealed....

don't judge a gentleman by his waiscoat

I'm not sure the previous reviewer and I were listening to the same book. while there were a few very steamy sex scenes there was way more story. it took almost half the book to get to a proper sex scene. the book focuses on Lord Marcus and Alistair the King's secretary and foster brother. Alister has many secrets and vices but young lord Marcus has set his sights and will have none other and is determined to woo the older man. I loved the story and I felt for the characters, I could feel Alisters pain and Marcus heart break. fear not tho there is a HEA for our unlikely pair. I recommend this book

One Sex Scene After Another

This audiobook was almost 14 hours long. The first 13 hours were almost nothing but one sex scene after another, with about 5 minutes worth of plot interspersed between scenes. The sex scenes were very well written, and the narrator did an excellent job. The problem was that hours and hours and hours of sex make for a very boring book. The little plot that was there was actually pretty good, and overall, I'm glad I stuck it out, but it wasn't easy to do and I had to put my player speed on fast to get through it. I haven't yet had a DNF, but this one was the closest I've ever been.

I honestly considered returning it to Audible but I was 25 days past the year deadline, so I guess I'm stuck with it.

This is a book I never knew I needed

Thank you so much Mo @ The Scarlet Siren for posting as you were listening to this book - I have a new obsession that is the Lords of Avenleigh.

How had I never heard of this book/author?

How have I lived for *mumble mumble* years without knowing this goodness.

I never knew I needed this book until I started it.

Seriously, how can the removing of a glove be one of the hottest things I have ever listened to?

Forget Jack and Rose in the car, a sleigh "ride" seems to be something I need to add to my bucket list.

There are some amazing words used in this book that we need to get into regular conversation.

The narration was wonderful. I was drawn right into the story, I could imagine myself in the ballroom with Marcus and Fin, the sensual touches, the longing looks. Amazing work Mr Maskew

I need the second book ASAP! Gimme Gimme Gimme!! (less)
