Henry Shaw can’t seem to help his desire for Arsen Grey, Marquis of Somerville, despite their differing stations and the fact that they’re both men.  When Arsen invites him to a house party, Henry agrees, even though he knows being around the object of his desire will be torture.  Was the invitation merely an act of friendship, or much more?

Object of His Desire is a quick, hot Regency tale.  Large, almost shy Henry’s devotion to Arsen is sweet.  Arsen is aristocratic and at times comes off as almost cold, but when his inner feelings peek out he’s a worthy hero.  I enjoyed watching Henry and Arsen fumble from sex to something more, and reading about Henry’s frightening past added depth to the story.  While Object of His Desire could have benefited, in my mind, from having more background and more on how Henry and Arsen’s relationship turned out, it was an entertaining and hot read.  If you like Regencies and gay romance, as I do, Object of His Desire is definitely a story to pick up.
