The Gentleman's Book of Vices: A Gay Victorian Historical Romance (Paperback)
Cozy, warm, and cute!! Think of a Hallmark movie but spicier! And if you're a sucker for the sunshine/grumpy pairing like I am this is an absolute win! Charlie's sunny disposition charmed me just as much as it charmed Miles. This is a great read, full of love and heart and community!— Shel
Finely dressed and finely drunk, Charlie Price is a man dedicated to his vices. Chief among them is his explicit novel collection, though his impending marriage to a woman he can't love will force his carefully curated collection into hiding.
Before it does, Charlie is determined to have one last hurrah: meeting his favorite author in person.
Miles Montague is more gifted as a smut writer than a shopkeep and uses his royalties to keep his flagging bookstore afloat. So when a cheerful dandy appears out of the mist with Miles's highly secret pen name on his pretty lips, Miles assumes the worst. But Charlie Price is no blackmailer; he's Miles's biggest fan.
A scribbled signature on a worn book page sets off an affair as scorching as anything Miles has ever written. But Miles is clinging to a troubled past, while Charlie's future has spun entirely out of his control...
