5 Fun Facts about Convincing the Secretary

by Ava March

  1. Grayson was originally named Alistair. As I was fleshing out the book’s concept, my very good friend, Cooper Davis, started working on a book with an Alistair. I didn’t want to be a copycat girl, so my Alistair became Grayson.
  2. I think of this as my ‘alphabet’ book. The heroes’ names are Edward Fenton and Grayson Holloway = EFGH. I didn’t realize this until months after #1 above. Then I wondered – was that unconsciously clever of me, or completely happenstance? I decided on happenstance, because I’m not that clever.  
  3. I gave Edward my ‘wandering mind in meetings’ tendency, then cranked it up and focused it on one person (Grayson). I mean really, who hasn’t allowed their mind to wander to inappropriate areas during boring meetings? Or maybe it’s just me.
  4. I outlined then did the research for this book, which almost got me into trouble. I’d planned for Edward and Gray to visit the National Gallery…yet the National Gallery didn’t open until 1824 (2 years after the book takes place). An evening of research yielded The Royal Academy as an alternative. A few minor plot tweaks later, and I was back on track with the book.
  5. Grayson wears spectacles. Silver framed spectacles, to be exact. Why is that a fun fact? Because I think glasses on a guy are hot 🙂

Warning: Includes buttoned-up gentlemen who become undone, improper use of a desk, spankings, and a big bad lord who has a soft spot for his virgin secretary.

Blurb: Never get between a reformed rake and his lover.

London Legal, Book 2

Three months ago, Leopold Thornton gave up his old, indulgent lifestyle to follow the man he loves to London. But now that he and Arthur Barrington have settled down, doubts are creeping in.

Arthur is spending more and more time at his law office—with a handsome new secretary. And Arthur’s ex-lover wants him back. Desperate not to lose Arthur, Leopold resorts to the only trick he knows to convince him to stay—pleasure.

Arthur knew that life with Leopold would never be boring. But recently their evenings—and afternoons and mornings—have become decidedly more vigorous. Being with Leopold is amazing, but juggling demanding clients and a demanding lover leaves Arthur exhausted and worried perhaps he and Leopold aren’t suited after all.

As business keeps Arthur later and later at the office, Leopold’s demons begin to haunt him again. To heal their rift, Arthur will have to let go of his own past—and pull his lover back from the brink.

Blurb:  A holiday in the country to indulge his wildest fantasies…

London Legal, Book 1

Arthur Barrington knows exactly what he wants. A practical man. Someone who values discretion. Commitment. In other words, someone like himself. His old friend, Leopold Thornton, an overindulged son of a wealthy viscount with a reputation for vice and debauchery, couldn’t be less of a good candidate.

Yet when Leopold extends an invitation to his country estate, Arthur agrees. Perhaps a holiday with the sinfully beautiful man will help him get over a recent breakup. Then he can return to his thriving London law practice and resume his quiet life.

Ten years ago, Leopold learned the hard way that patience doesn’t always have its rewards. Now that he has Arthur all to himself, he isn’t going to let a second opportunity pass him by. And he certainly isn’t above using pleasure to tempt Arthur into his bed.

Leopold has only a few days to open Arthur’s eyes to the possibility that he’s the man Arthur is looking for. That his love is genuine—and he’s worthy of Arthur’s heart.

Product Warnings
Includes a gorgeous bad boy who’s been in love with a conservative solicitor for a decade. Indecent acts in a forest between two hot men. Angst. More explicit sex. And expectations turned upside down.
