It was only supposed to be one night. One night to determine once and for all if he truly preferred men. But the last thing Lord Benjamin Parker expected to find in a questionable gambling hall in Cheapside is a gorgeous young man who steals his heart.
It was only supposed to be a job. Cavin Fox has done it many times—select a prime mark, distract him with lust, and leave his pockets empty. Yet when Cavin slips away under the cover of darkness, the only part of Benjamin he leaves untouched is his pockets.
With a taste of his fantasies fulfilled, Benjamin wants more than one night with Cavin. But convincing the elusive young man to give them a chance proves difficult. Cavin lives with a band of thieves in the worst area of London, and he knows there's no place for him in a gentleman's life. Yet Benjamin isn't about to let Cavin—and love—continue to slip away from him.
In the briskly paced opening of the Brook Street trilogy, March (Bound Forever) explores a secretive world of early 1820s London gentlemen who search for same-sex romance. Taking his first shy steps into the society of men who prefer men, Lord Benjamin Parker is delighted by the handsome Cavin Fox, unaware that Cavin makes his living by seducing and robbing noblemen. Cavin is unwilling to steal from sweet, beautiful Benjamin and unable to forget their night of passion. As Cavin plots his escape from the thief and procurer who has commanded him from boyhood, he is forced to turn to Benjamin for aid in rescuing Cavin s teen prot g , Sam. Despite occasional carelessness with the historical details, March neatly balances erotic moments with the budding friendship and romance between the proudly independent Cavin and the nervous but eager Benjamin in a charming and spicy novella that will leave readers impatient for more.
