Jaded lord, stalwart cop, instant attraction.

Lord Avery Wickersham wakes from a night’s debauchery at a bordello to police officers pounding on the bedroom door. During the vice raid, Constable Connor Tate is ready to arrest the lord and his two male sex partners when Avery’s glib tongue earns a reprieve for his friends, if not for himself.

From this grim beginning, men as opposite as summer and winter slowly work their way to an unexpected spring. Avery is ripe for a change in his aimless life, while Connor struggles between duty and desire. Overwhelming passion takes them by storm, but can a rush of lust evolve into love when their lives are so different?

While Avery attempts altruism by volunteering at a charity mission, Connor uncovers government corruption and an evil man who brings torture and death to his victims. The duo join forces to try to stop the killer, but when one of the lovers faces peril, their time may run out.

Warning: Contains a scene of abuse and torture.

Story Review:

The Copper was a solid historical romance between a lord and a police officer. I really felt the time and place. Bonnie Dee did a great job keeping to the time period, in my opinion.

I also liked that Conner and Avery had more than just attraction between them once they shed their class status. I really enjoyed both characters and loved that they grew as people as the book went on. There were some great tender moments and realizations.

The mystery in the background was good, though I felt the resolution was a little out there. I liked the secondary characters of the Lady (I can’t remember her name) and Bertram. They added to the overall story greatly.

If you like historicals, this is definitely one to read.

Narration Review:

I really enjoyed the narrator and thought he did a wonderful job at capturing the essence of the characters. He was pleasant to listen to and I will definitely listen to him again.
