Ts to relax not be seduced Which what Arthur seriously rritated me Reitergayschichten I in this book He wouldn t talk to Leopold and kept pushing him away I felt so bad for Leopold who s desperate to hold on to the man he loves and suffers from what we now knows depression The angst here stems from a complete lack of communication Neither man s willing to talk about his wants and feelings Only at the end when Leopold leaves does Arthur realize he was being a total douche and only then does he try to convince Leopold that he won t take him for granted again Leopold should have made Arthur beg but the book does end on a happy note Steamy action ncluded Review originally posted on The Book Adventures of Annelise Lestrange The StoryArthur couldn t be happier with his lover Leopold Without the threat of coming home to an empty and cold apartment Arthur US Helicopter Pilot in Vietnam is refreshed and working even harder than usual Except that Leopold seems to be restless of late and just won t let Arthur rest at all during the night And notn a pleasant wayLeopold couldn t be happier with his lover Arthur Without the threat of losing him again to some other respectable gentleman Leopold Harry's Bar: The Life Times of the Legendary Venice Landmark is refreshed and sober as he never has been Except that Arthur s hours at the office seem to onlyncrease and Arthur just hired a new secretary And a beautiful man neverthelessWill Arthur and Leopold work out their differences or prove that they weren t ever suited at allThe Analysis Just remembering that those were my Traces in the Desert: Journeys of Discovery across Central Asia impressions and opinion as a reader I like Convincing Leopold even better than Convincing Arthur As I mentioned on the review for book one Leopolds one of my favorite Ava March s males He わたしに××しなさい! 3 [Watashi ni xx Shinasai! 3] is so exotic beautiful and adorable ugh I wanna hug him AhemThis book was a re read and I lost count of times that I did so since buyingt so German at a Glance: Phrase Book Dictionary for Travelers it s another case of over analyzing something that I m deeply familiarized with Not a bad thing just means that you ll have to bear with me for a while longer haha This book was dramatic than the last and left me with my heartn tiny pieces on my bedroom floor I cried hard on the first read and sometimes I still do I just can t stand what Arthur did to Leopold But we ll get there Important thing Blühende Heide is that this books an excellent seuel and a five stars book The narrative Alchemy and Arcana: an Urban Fantasy Novella Collection in all March s books so fars third person styled with switching points of view between the couple aka my favorite kind so once again we are able to see what goes on with Arthur and Leopold And that only makes the reader s heart broken when they start to fall apart You know how much they love each other and you can t do anything to help them or assure them how perfect for each other than they areHonestly you have no Once Upon a Secret: My Affair with President John F.

such love and devotion the man In the first book Arthur pretty love and devotion the man In the first book Arthur pretty tries to use Thorn for sex before making demands about how Thorn spends his time when they re not together So now n the seuel Thorn has done everything Arthur s asked and still Arthur takes him for granted and treats him like an annoying pet Arthur does realize how selfish he Schlechter Sex 2 is being towards the end but I m disappointedt took so long for him to understand He also realizes he takes Thorn for granted another nice feature but as a reader New Jewish Voices: Plays Produced by the Jewish Repertory Theatre it s too little too late for me I simply couldn t appreciate Arthur as a romantic lead by this point he comes across as way too self centered and uptight to really understand why Thorn has beenn love with him for so long and thus didn t care f he and Thorn work things out I realize not every reader will feel this way and f you didn t mind Arthur or liked him from the first book then the repetitive behavior shouldn t really bother The writing does a commendable job n explaining the circumstances and details that lead to the problems all of which make sense and seem very realistic This leads to the real strength of the story which s the writing March knows how to write an easy to read and steamy regency and CL runs along very familiar lines The situations language and descriptions are very similar from book to book so fans are likely to find this offering Sword and Sorceress 24 in line with others from March The novellas uick with plenty of erotica and never really slows down It s easy to read n one sitting and mostly clean of mistakes This particular series s not my favorite of the author s due to my ssue with the main character Arthur but t s still a fun read and one I d recommend 42 StarsEven better than the first one I loved this because The Riptide Ultra-Glide it focuses on the established relationshipthe growing pains the adjustments the expectations and even the failures Yest has that oft overused lack of communication driving the dramabut I think that given the time period this s set and the typical way men especially well
