Hot Valley: A Novel

Hot Valley: A Novel Review

Move over, Scarlett O’Hara! It’s New England, 1861, and the troubles in the southern states seem a long way off for Jack Edgerton, the spoiled son of a prominent Vermont family. Howver, when he meets and falls in love with Aaron Johnson, the sexy son of a slave on the run from Virginia, Edgerton’s world is turned upside down. Separated by circumstances, the lovers pursue each other through the escalating madness of the Civil War and both find themselves forced to choose sides. After a series of outrageous adventures – including steamy woodland trysts and an impromptu jailhouse orgy that briefly reconciles the warring parties – they are reunited in the Shenandoah Valley in the autumn of 1864 — where the conflict is about to come to a bloody, burning climax.

  • Don Bradshaw

    Aaron Johnson, the son of a freed slave, and Jack Edgerton, a young guy of privilege from Vermont, go on a fuck-a-thon. The book begins in 1864 but don't look for history. All you'll find in this book...

    I came across this author, while searching for a gay version of "Fifty Shades of Grey." Of the gay novels I've read, this one has the best plot. I was amazed by Lear's ability to develop characters wi...

    Previous to reading "Hot Valley", I had read and thoroughly enjoyed Lear's Mitch Mitchell trilogy. If you've also read these before hand, I feel you will be disappointed in this book as I was. Where M...

    I was sure I would like this book as I liked other Lear novels, but it was a letdown. To be frank, it's a fuck book and that's not what I wanted or expected- graphic sex I have no problem with, but th...
