Synopsis: Two of London's most notorious rakehells, Linus Radcliffe and Robert Anderson, are the best of friends. They share almost everything—clothes, servants, their homes, and even each other's bed on occasion. The one thing they don't share: lovers. For while Linus prefers men, Robert prefers women...except when it comes to Linus.

As another Season nears its end, Robert can't ignore his growing jealousy. He hates watching Linus disappear from balls to dally with other men. Women are lovely, but Linus rouses feelings he's never felt with another. Unwilling to share his gorgeous friend another night, Robert has a proposition for Linus.

A proposition Linus flatly refuses—but not for the reasons Robert thinks. Still, Robert won't take no for an answer. He sets out to prove a thing or two to his best friend—yet will learn something about the heart himself.

Review: I liked this much better than the 2nd book in the series.  The first book in this Regency Romance series, Thief is definitely the steamiest but this one just had a good story.  Although Linus and Rob, share just about everything including on occasion a bed and have been best friends and more since childhood, Linus just can't wrap his brain around the idea that Rob has finally realized that he wants him and only him.  The struggle Linus has and the awkward way Rob goes about trying to convince his friend that he really does want to be with him rings true.  I could easily see both their points of view and to watch the inner struggles of both of them was a unique twist.  Of course the sex was hot and steamy and the men both gorgeous so that doesn't hurt the plot either.
