Call me Oliver…

Lord Oliver Marsden finally has the man he loves; if only he could get Lord Vincent Prescot to acknowledge his feelings. Oliver knows firsthand how longing for acceptance can make you bend to another person’s whims. His actions mirror those of Vincent, in some respects, when it comes to a desire for love but enough is enough! Oliver wants to hear his given name slip from the man who owns his heart lips like a drop of fine wine. He is ready to tear down the last remaining boundaries. Oliver wants love and refuses to accept less.

Vincent is proud of the man he has become. He has wealth and respect of his peers, but his father’s acceptance still eludes him. His father’s request for a favor could cause him to lose Oliver. Will Vincent decide his being in his father’s good graces is more important than having Oliver?

Bound to Him is the sequel to Ava March’s Bound by Deception. Having Oliver and Vincent back was a wonderful treat. Oliver’s strength of character and mind shine in this installment. I was proud to see him take a stance, regardless of the outcome. There were moments where I truly wanted to take Vincent to task. Oliver is a man to be treasured and Vincent’s treatment was anything but, at times. However, Vincent pleased me when he decided to allow his heart to guide him, and the handsome Lord fell back into my good graces. The story has a wonderful balance. There were unforeseen twists in the plot that kept me off kilter, and the sexual encounters were scorching and written with a sensual flavor. I could almost see the dimness of the rooms, the flickering candles, and feel the warmth of the fireplace. Bound to Him was a wonderful sequel. I’m look forward to reading more of Ms. March’s delightful books in the future.
