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

I typically avoid D/s themes in my M/M romance reading, but I love K. J. Charles, and I thoroughly enjoyed A Fashionable Indulgence, so I took a chance and don't regret it in the least.

The romance between Silas and Dominic unfolds gorgeously, with a subtlety I've come to expect from the author, and the portions of the plot that revolve around the Peterloo massacre and its repercussions are complex, tightly woven, and utterly riveting. More than anything, I adore the acknowledgement that two people can be vastly different from one another, hold extremely diverse opinions, and yet still interact with both respect and affection — even while hotly debating sensitive issues.

Despite my initial hesitation because of the D/s elements, I think this has ended up being my favorite book of the series.
