Reviews: “A Confidential Problem” and “A Private Miscellany” (Society of Gentlemen short stories) by K.J. Charles

The two following reviews are of content freely available on the author’s website as supplemental material to the Society of Gentlemen series. Neither can be read as stand-alone, but are best enjoyed following a read of the full series.

“A Confidential Problem” is a lovely deleted scene that shows David Cyprian and Silas Mason, two men who are decidedly not gentlemen from the Society of Gentleman series, in a nice light. It delves into their characters and shows that all characters in a book are the heroes of their own stories, living full lives even when off-scene from the main events.

I think it was a good idea not to include this text within A Seditious Affair because it reveals too much information integral to the slow burn of the romance in A Gentleman’s Position.

Rating: 5 (out of 5) stars. Cross-posted to Goodreads.


Private MiscellanyThis collection of letters between the characters featured in the series follows the full trilogy. It’s helpful to read it soon after finishing the series so that all of the names and relationships between characters are fresh. Charles does a lovely job of evoking the flavor of the time’s written correspondence while maintaining each character’s individual voice. The same with news clipping regarding the events mentioned in the letters.

The rest of the story is a delicious treat for fans of the series, featuring my favorite pairing: a werewolf and his Tory (and perhaps something special as a holiday extra.)

Rating: 5 (out of 5) stars. Cross-posted to Goodreads.
