Review: Think of England by K.J. Charles

Think of EnglandIf you’ve ever watched Downton Abbey and thought, “This show could use more espionage, blackmail, and murder,” this is the book for you! What I especially enjoyed about this book is that it is primarily a mystery/thriller with an excellent romance subplot. But more importantly, the romance subplot informs and adds to the tension of the main plot, which is a credit once again to the author’s ability to tell a seamless story.  Continue reading

Review: “The Ruin of Gabriel Ashleigh” (Society of Gentlemen short story) by K.J. Charles

Ruin of Gabriel AshleighThis short story acts as a sort of prequel to the Society of Gentlemen series, filling in the background for one of the established parings in the full trilogy. It can be read as a stand-alone.

My favorite part of this story is card game of “strip poker,” though Ash and Francis are playing a game that predates that. It’s ridiculously sexy and you can cut the tension with a knife.  Continue reading

Review: A Seditious Affair (Society of Gentlemen #2) by K.J. Charles

Seditious AffairFirst of all, this can’t be read as a stand-alone.

In fact, I spent a lot of time admiring the plot details Charles had sprinkled through the previous book that emphasized both stories, especially where they overlap.  Continue reading

Review: Band Sinister by K.J. Charles

Band SinisterI have become very spoiled by how so many of Charles’ books are series that revolve around a group of people, because I desperately want more books featuring these characters.

It was a bit overwhelming, being dropped in the midst of so many names and personalities, but it quickly became what made this book so special. Overall, Guy and Philip’s developing relationship was lovely, but it seemed like the plot that everything else fit against, and “everything else” is what I want more of.  Continue reading
