Publisher's Summary

K. J. Charles turns up the heat in her new Society of Gentlemen novel as two lovers face off in a sensual duel that challenges their deepest beliefs.
Silas Mason has no illusions about himself. He's not lovable or even likable. He's an overbearing idealist, a radical bookseller and pamphleteer who lives for revolution...and for Wednesday nights. Every week he meets anonymously with the same man, in whom Silas has discovered the ideal meld of intellectual companionship and absolute obedience to his sexual commands. But, unbeknownst to Silas, his closest friend is also his greatest enemy, with the power to see him hanged - or spare his life.
A loyal, well-born gentleman official, Dominic Frey is torn apart by his affair with Silas. By the light of day, he cannot fathom the intoxicating lust that drives him to meet with the radical week after week. In the bedroom everything else falls away. Their needs match, and they are united by sympathy for each other's deepest vulnerabilities. But when Silas' politics earn him a death sentence, desire clashes with duty, and Dominic finds himself doing everything he can to save the man who stole his heart.

Critic Reviews

"This book is so good I read it in one sitting. I just couldn’t put it down. K. J. Charles has long been one of my favorite authors, and this book doesn’t disappoint. A Seditious Affair is a beautiful love story interwoven with the realism of the political unrest of the time - another winner from K. J. Charles!" (USA Today best-selling author Carole Mortimer)

Adults falling in love!

Any additional comments?

I find myself tired of May/December romances and teenage puppy love. This book's protagonists offer a welcome change. It is so nice to see two middle aged men fall in love over books, philosophy, wine, with not so much attention to physical beauty until well after attachment is established.

I am not the biggest fan of dominance and submission, but I was not put off at all because, I don't know, the care is there. The awareness at all times of each other and of limits and care to observe that. I loved that there was discussion of why the protagonists felt the way they did and that, while the romance was at the forefront, it did not swallow their world and we got to see them moving in it, addressing their pasts and presents.

Their struggles are genuine for me; grown men who are allowed to still grow, to learn, to find love and comfort outside of the usual trappings of puppy love, insta-love and physical fascinations leading to love. The characters feel like people and I find that I cannot say that about many romances I've read.

Are there contrivances? Certainly. I do not think any romance is about the "real world;" but when the characters are texturized, 3D-entities, the contrivances melt away for me and I only want to see what happens at the end; and that definitely happened with this story.

A wonderful m/m historical romance.

Not only a great m/m romance, one of the best historical romances I've read so far.
Wonderful narration, I fully appreciate this narrator's skill with varried accents, from a Tori Dandy, to a rough bulldog from the poorest London, to whiney cockney'd nefarious characters.
Ensure you start from the beginning of the series.

This is my favourite KJ Charles novel, so I knew I liked the story. The narration really brought it alive. I loved Silas's voice, in particular.

This book has everything anyone could wish for

Where does A Seditious Affair rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Definitely in the top 10

What did you like best about this story?

Apart from the meticulously researched historical content; the love story between the two main characters was breathtaking and superior.

What does Matthew Lloyd Davies bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Matthew Lloyd Davies brings another dimension, he breathes life into an already wonderful story. His range of tone and voices is incredible, I had to remind myself that this was one man, reading a myriad of different characters of all ages, class etc. Simply superb!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Not really, the whole book, from start to finish is perfect. If I had to choose one; the first kiss between Silas and Dominic was stunning and moving.

Any additional comments?

I have only recently read/listened to this author with the first two books in this series and I am firmly hooked. I have already searched her backlist and been disappointed to learn that there are no other audio versions available for download in the UK. I only hope that the partnership between the author and narrator continues and we see some more of this talented duo.
