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.

It’s complex, sensual, raw and gosh darn it—super romantic. It’s one of my favorite reads of [the year].”—For What It’s Worth
A Literary Romance!
I love this romantic, literary, and historical tale about radical, Commoner Silas Mason, and government official, Gentlemen Dominic Frey. I enjoyed the well-developed MCs, the diversity of the side characters, and the social unrest plot device. There is an arc both MCs go through that is intriguing, through-provoking, and relevant even in today’s times. KJ Charles has a talent for enlightening while entertaining the reader with romance and sexy times, too. Again, I’m immersed in this world of “A Society of Gentleman”.
A seditious affair is the story of two men trying desperately to balance their love for each other with the politics and laws of the times they live in. There are brutal elements to the love story between these two men, but it's truly beautiful in its brutality and through it all, their love is always evident. I really loved this book and can't recommend it highly enough to anyone looking for an extremely intriguing and enthralling read.

High Heat Factor
Historical isn't always a win for me, but this series is wonderful in my opinion. This entire book was interesting to me, and the sex was smoking hot. The plot between this book and the last is connected. It's about politics of the time. The main characters in this story are on different sides of everything, but perfect matches in the bedroom.
