He wants to spend just one night with a man. A sultry encounter with a handsome stranger surpasses all his hopes, leaving him certain that he will live off the memories for the rest of his life.

Lord Richard Avery has grown tired of his endless string of casual relationships, yet an argument with his lover sends him right into the arms of a total stranger.

A titled nobleman decides to explore his innermost desires--just once--before performing his duty to find a wife.

All Henry, the Earl of Brenleigh, wants is ONE INDULGENCE. Author Lydia Gastrell creates a fascinating story illustrating the value of love, regardless of gender.

Lord Richard Avery is tired of pretending to be something he is not. He finds himself intrigued by the prospect of introducing Henry to pleasure, but he knows that once will never be enough.

Torn between his heart and his duty, Henry makes decisions that could force him to live a lie. As a m/m storyline, this book earns high marks for the emotional development. The characters are passionate, but they are restricted by society. It's those same restrictions that govern Henry's determination to continue the family name.

The addition of a unique twist to the plot only enhances the book's appeal. With interesting characters, a well-developed storyline and plenty of heat, this story is worth the indulgence.
