The Desire for Dearborne by V.B. Kildaire
Perpetually sick and bookish Leander Mayfield travels to London to become the new Earl of Dearborne. London is a bit much for this poor American farmer who prefers to spend his time reading about King Arthur. Now meet Julien Sutcliffe, the Earl of Blackstone, whose reputation preceeds him for liking "the company of men." Julien is immediately drawn to Leander and the romance begins... but wait! There is a plot afoot to steal the Earldom from Leander!
Overall this was quite an enjoyable read. At times I forgot I was reading a "published" book because the story does have a fanfiction feel to it (but that might be because I've read a lot of slash fanfiction). I have to admit I did get a little annoyed at how weak and innocent Leander is portrayed but the quick moving story made up for it. I'm looking forward to reading more stories from this author.
