Amazon: Eric Alan Westfall Mr. Felcher's Grand Emporium, or, The Adventures of a Pair of Spares in the Fine Art of Gentlemanly Portraiture (Another England #2)
It’s 1882 in Another England, where being a buggerer is still legal but in the reign of Her Most Stuffy and Moral Majesty, Victoria, being a friend of Edward’s (gay) is not the done thing. She disapproves. The Ton disapproves.
What are our hapless heroes—Reginald, Lord Smythe, and Harold, Lord Fotherby—to do? At twenty-nine, they’re spares with no duties to ensure continuation of the family name, and their wealth precludes jobs. The manly fun of Tonnish men—sports, drinking, gambling, partying—isn’t much fun. Neither is the wenching requirement, which is why they pretend to have mistresses.
Everything changes when Harry comes across a set of very *ahem!* photographs of men his manservant forgot to put away. Photographs acquired from Mr. Felcher’s Grand Emporium. (Think Victorian adult book store.)
During six visits to the Emporium, along the way to a quite wonderful HEA and learning to be all they can be as friends of Edward’s, Reggie and Harry will: view and participate in some private showings, acquire photographs of Bendy Ben, a masked black model, and wonder who he is, create new words, deal with a blackmailing older noble with the help of a valiant British mastiff, meet ‘arry the ‘orse, a cabby with large talents, and discover the marvels of reading rooms and glorious wall circles.
There’s also a touching tailor, a bit of Burns, some Shakespeare, Harry’s wet package, a marvelous mirror, humor, flowery language of the Victorian variety and...great sex.
