A Seditious Affair

A Society of Gentlemen Novel
Borrow Borrow Borrow
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's 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.
Praise for A Seditious Affair
"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 bestselling author Carole Mortimer

"Gah! It's always the books I love the most that leave me flailing and tongue tied. . . . A Seditious Affair is not a fluffy read but it is a story you can really sink your teeth into.

"I look forward to even more acerbic wit and foppish clothing in future books!"—Badass Book Reviews

"Overall, a fantastic book!"—Way Too Hot Books
