Read Me True
By Aurecie Macbeth

A chance meeting between a disillusioned book dealer who has all but shunned love and the one man who could change his mind -- if death does not part them first...

Ethan 'not Ethaniel' Blair is a promiscuous bookstore owner who doesn't believe in love and mocks those who do. Read Me True is the angsty, highly erotic tale of his fall for linguist Thomas Read, six-foot-two of lithe perfection and starved for affection. Of course, Ethan does not do romance -- he only knows seduction, and he will stop at nothing to veer Thomas's interest from antique books to him. And if Thomas appeals to parts of him that he'd long thought dead, if his company endangers him more than his worst vices ever had... it's never too late to turn away, right?
