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.

Includes a special message from the editor, as well as an excerpt from another Loveswept title.

This is the 2nd novel in the Society of Gentlemen stories and while it is considered a standalone, there are characters from the first story, A Fashionable Indulgence in it. You won’t be sorry if you read the first one.. its delish!
Now, this story. It starts off ..with a “bang” and pulls you in, well it pulled me in… good and hard!!! That was a smoking hot start. And I remained captivated through the story.
There are writers who just get it, KJ Charles gets it!!!! The words. They made me swoon, smile, swoon some more and smile a lot more.
When you read a Historical Romance, there are expectations; intensity, forbidden passion, an intriguing story, and all of those were fully met in this story!
This is not just a story about forbidden lust… there is also a side story, that has heart-pounding moments!!!!
