Convincing Arthur by Ava March
I'm a fan of fanfiction, especially the slash variety (if you haven't noticed - big Harry/Draco shipper) and a lover of regency romance (I'm a total anglophile), so I thought this little tale of a M/M regency romance might just be up my alley. And it was and it wasn't... First I wouldn't call this a pure romance, it's more erotica (which is perfectly fine, great even) but the story was so flat that is was almost boring.
Perhaps this story is part of a series (I wasn't sure) because I felt like I should know more about these characters and just jumped into a story a couple hours late. The novella (it was rather short) could have been so much better if there was more character development, one guy is titled, rich and a bit shiftless the other a workaholic commoner. The rich guy is in love with the commoner and he wants to start a relationship with him... but I didn't really feel a connection between them.
I will say the love scenes are pretty hot but just know before you read it's erotica and more like novella.
That said, enjoy the quick steamy read!
