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

Other reviews have covered the brilliant writing - sharp and engaging style, spot-on imagery and language, excellent flow - and discussed the relevant plot points, so in lieu of more summary, here is a general list of reasons why I've completely LOVED this book. Please proceed with caution if you haven't read it, as there will be some vague spoilers ahead:

1) I have read - and, don't get me wrong, enjoyed - plenty of historical fiction in which the past serves as a sort of nostalgic fantasy backdrop. In this book, however, history feels immediate and alive, easy to imagine because similar moral dilemmas exist today - and not just in vague universals, but in the very definition of social responsibility and the two-party system conflicts that keep echoing into the present. The book covers a wide enough slice of the social strata in its two protagonists to illustrate the profound differences in their social positions and associated mindsets via daily struggles, observations, and decision-making; the devil's in the details, and the details presented here are SUPERB. And the history they each embody, while entwined in their love story, is told through sharp contrast of their respective positions and outlooks, which are brilliantly presented: it's lived experience, unsentimental, realistic, and easy to relate to (the politics at the core not being very different from today's, after all). The writing is beautifully done and never feels like a lecture - rather, characters take note and have streams of thought that fit their perspective, and their voices feel personal and truthful, whether we agree with them or not.

At the outset I'd like to say that I think KJ Charles is a great writer and I hesitated to leave a kind of negative review of this book because I generally love her stuff and think it is really well thought out in terms of plot, world building and character. Having said that since I'm still broken up (after months!) about the resolution of this particular story I thought I'd leave a heads up for anyone coming into the story from a similar perspective. That is, as a reader heavily invested in Silas and his revolutionary ideals. I'd have appreciated knowing this going in so I hope it will also be helpful to someone else!

On the level of individual story arcs I was very happy with how Dom and Silas negotiated their relationship and loved how they changed as individuals due to their contact and conversations. There were also some very interesting side characters that I was very intrigued by and thought they were well written and treated with nuance and respect.

However if (like me) you fell in love with Silas in A Fashionable Indulgence in part because he was so fiercely independent and took such joy in keeping himself a free man, then the resolution to this might leave you feeling a bit hollow. I want to clarify that I never thought the book was going to end in a traditional happy ending and clearly Silas in particular was going to have to compromise given the political realities of the time.

But to me Silas was a true revolutionary. Not in a we-shall-burn-everything-down way but in a this-system-is-FUCKED- and-I-need-to-help-people way! I fully understand that ppl get tired and he had been fighting all his life but I feel like that was his absolute core.

A Seditious Affair A Society of Gentlemen Novel  by K.J. Charles

Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews

Genre:  Romance,

Oh I adored the Magpie books, and then KC Charles starts another series...I loved the first book ( have just discovered there’s a 0.5 novella on amazon about Ash and bought it). Silas played a big part in the first book, and here the time line kind of overlaps with the end of that one so we see events we know about happening from Silas and Dom’s POV.
Dom, seemed one of those darkish, silent and devoted to his job types in book one. I had wondered about Wednesdays and Silas, and then later we saw more that confirmed what I’d thought. Now we see the full story. Dom’s a Sub when it comes to sex, but needs a proper domination and in the past for him that’s been violence. That was the thing that was the breaking point for him and Lord Richard, and Lord Richard was and still is a real jerk about it. Then Silas comes along each Wednesday and he doesn’t like whips and floggers. He gives Dom what he needs though just by his force of character- he’s an amazing person.
On the face of it they’re so opposite, Dom the High Tory, working in a senior position for the Home Office and Silas the seditionist, writer and publisher of illegal pamphlets preaching against the King and the Gov. They only know each other through Wednesdays though, don’t know names, don’t exchange personal details. As time goes on though they get closer and closer,  and we can see there’s a disaster in the making. Each feel very strongly about their politics and I love that kind of dichotomy in a story, where the two are so opposed I think “ how on earth is the author going to get them a HEA?
