The Bitter Redness of Love by Dominique FrostAnthony Clark, degenerate genius and impoverished nobleman, finds himself wedded to the painfully proper young aristocrat, Stephen Ayers. They’ve been pledged since before Stephen’s birth.

Will their marriage prove intolerable to them both, or will they find a happy equilibrium, instead? As Anthony teaches Stephen the pleasures of the body, will Stephen be able to teach Anthony the pleasures of the heart?


Bitter Rednesses of Love has all the earmarks of an excellent Regency romance. I truly enjoyed finding an m/m that was set in this time period, and the splash of steampunk just made it that much more enjoyable. The love scenes are hot enough to singe eyebrows, and give the story a some wonderful color. The formal language of this piece makes you feel as though you are right there in the Regency period and gives this story extra realism. If you love Regency romance, and m/m romance then you definitely want to pick up this little gem.
