What reviewers are saying…

about The Bohemian and the Banker.

The Blogger Girls, Heather
I’m always a huge fan of virgins and self discovery, and I was quickly drawn into Nigel and Jay’s whirlwind romance.

Crystal’s Many Reviewers
The descriptions of everything from the food to the dresses to the smells to the art, you felt like you were walking down those streets with Nigel and Jay.

M/M Book Reviews, Zane
I was captivated by Jay as much as Nigel was, and I loved how he was able to transform Nigel’s fear and shyness into eagerness, willingness.

Joyfully Jay, Susan
We get to see the people under their facades—be they bland business suits and dolled-up frocks—and that gives this character-driven tale the required depth, purpose and meaning. The message of learning to love another as well as yourself continues to be relevant to this day. Recommended read.

Prism Book Alliance, Teresa
I could feel the atmosphere of time and place. Both characters radiated their station and yet were wholly themselves. I loved seeing Nigel come apart and break through his stuffy façade for Jay. Jay was truly a bohemian soul but seeing him fall for banker Nigel was heartwarming.

Lovebytes Reviews, Carissa
I don’t get very many chances to read stories set in the early 1900’s so this was a joy to find. I totally recommend this book if you love historicals, cross-dressing, and two men who are perfect for each other.

Heroes and Heartbreakers, Janet
The Parisian setting of Bonnie Dee and Summer Devon’s The Bohemian and the Banker is as transformative as the romance itself—surely everything is possible in the City of Lights. Nigel is a closeted gay man, who has never pursued his attraction to men; but here, his secret desires are freed.

The Bohemian and the Banker is Live

BohemianAndTheBanker-The72lgMarch goes out like a lion (or is it a lamb?) with a brand new release from Summer Devon and Bonnie Dee. If you’ve enjoyed our books such as The Gentleman’s Madness or Mending Him, here is a new tale about opposites attracting–my personal favorite theme. I like the fact that  people who may seem poles apart personality wise or socially or whatever, under the surface might share an affinity that ties them closely together.

I love the movie Moulin Rouge so this has flickers of that flavor–minus anyone dying from consumption. I learned a lot about the Paris Exposition of 1900 and all the wonderful scientific marvels there, including a moving sidewalk to get people around the fairgrounds, and the first moving pictures WITH SOUND! I really enjoy that Edwardian time period when everything is on the brink of exploding into the 20th century Industrial Revolution.

Here’s a postcard from the Exposition:

Here’s the blurb for Bohemian and the Banker, which you can also read on the book page:

Sent to Paris on business, Nigel Warren doesn’t quite understand why his colleagues’ eyes twinkle as they tell him to meet them at a local night spot.

When he discovers it’s a drag cabaret and his acquaintances aren’t there, he realizes he’s the butt of a joke. Yet he finds himself quite undone by a singer dressed in an elegant gown, crooning a spellbinding ballad.

It’s not unusual for Jay, a former Londoner, to bring a new “friend” home from the cabaret, but he’s never had a guest quite like Nigel, whose straitlaced manner hides an unexpected passionate streak.

One romantic night on a rooftop under starry skies, followed by an afternoon enjoying the excitement of the 1901 Paris Exposition, bonds these opposites in a way neither can forget—even after they part.

Their spark reignites when Jay comes to London, but he’s not sure he can go back to hiding his true self, not even for the sake of love…unless Nigel is willing to shed his cloak of staid respectability and take a leap of faith.
