I’m not one to read many historical stories, some I do read of course, but I often dismiss a story when I see that it’s a historical one. I don’t really know why, but I do. So it gladdens me to say I read a historical and I liked it LOL.
My Ture Love Gave to Me by Ava March. I was sure I’d read Ava March before this, but I haven’t marked any of her books as read, so I guess maybe I haven’t.
But, back to this story. Alexander hates Christmas because it reminds him of how Thomas, his one true love, left him four years ago. Thomas who fled to New York is now back in London, and the only reason he’s there is to beg Alexander to take him back.
Alexander isn’t so forgiving. Thomas broke his heart and it hasn’t healed during the four years that have past, he will not risk getting it broken again. But Thomas is persistent.
If you’re into fencing and Christmas balls, you should give this a try. Not my usual read, but I liked it a lot.
Alexander Norton loathes the festive season. The revelry of the ton is a reminder of Christmas four years ago, when his first love, Thomas Bennett, broke his heart and fled to New York without a word. So when he encounters Thomas at a holiday ball, Alexander is determined not to let on how much he still hurts.
Thomas has returned for one reason only: Alexander. Having finally come to terms with his forbidden desires, he will do whatever he must to convince Alexander to give their love another chance. But instead of the happy, carefree man Thomas once knew, Alexander is now hard and cynical. Saddened to know he’s to blame for the man’s bitterness, Thomas resolves to reignite the passion he knows lies hidden behind the wall of disdain…
