DEBUT A decadent dandy on the way to the altar and a reclusive author of erotic novels find unexpected love in Victorian London in Everlee’s debut and series launch. Debt-ridden Charlie Price is six weeks away from a marriage that will ensure financial support from his family, but it will also mean an end to indulging many of his pleasures, including locking away his prized collection of erotic novels. When he has a chance to get a signature from his favorite author, he jumps at the opportunity to make his collection complete. Miles Montague is a reclusive bookstore owner and author, fearful of potential notoriety and the long arm of the law. When someone who knows his alter ego comes calling, he is frightened, concerned, and angry, but Charlie’s charm and honest admiration for his work ends up propelling the two men into a fiery affair that will make them question their previous plans.
VERDICT Everlee creates an intriguing cast of found family for Charlie and truly thorny obstacles for the lovers to overcome. Fans of Cat Sebastian and Olivia Waite will enjoy this queer Victorian romance.
