A holiday in the country to indulge his wildest fantasies…
London Legal, Book 1
Arthur Barrington knows exactly what he wants. A practical man. Someone who values discretion. Commitment. In other words, someone like himself. His old friend, Leopold Thornton, an overindulged son of a wealthy viscount with a reputation for vice and debauchery, couldn’t be less of a good candidate.
Yet when Leopold extends an invitation to his country estate, Arthur agrees. Perhaps a holiday with the sinfully beautiful man will help him get over a recent breakup. Then he can return to his thriving London law practice and resume his quiet life.
Ten years ago, Leopold learned the hard way that patience doesn’t always have its rewards. Now that he has Arthur all to himself, he isn’t going to let a second opportunity pass him by. And he certainly isn’t above using pleasure to tempt Arthur into his bed.
Leopold has only a few days to open Arthur’s eyes to the possibility that he’s the man Arthur is looking for. That his love is genuine—and he’s worthy of Arthur’s heart.

My View:

Convincing Arthur by Ava March is book one in her London Legal series. Books one and two, Convincing Leopold, are re-releases and they will be followed by book three, Convincing the Secretary later this year.

Convincing Arthur is a perfectly formed erotic Regency Historical with two likeable men, lots of very hot sex, and plenty of angst to be overcome. Leopold is tortured and self- destructive, he longs desperately for his longstanding friend Arthur to see him through fresh new eyes but he hardly dares to imagine that possibility.
Arthur is very reserved, he has a position and reputation to uphold, he likes Leopold well enough, and in sex they are perfectly matched, but all he knows of Leopold makes him wary that he is capable of a relationship.

Convincing Arthur is an intense, sensual and steamy novella, perfect for this time of year when we all need a bit of warmth to keep us going, and I’m really looking forward to catching up with both men in Convincing Leopold.
