Inhaltsangabe zu „A Seditious Affair: A Society of Gentlemen Novel (Society of Gentlemen Series)“ von KJ Charles

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.

    Dominic ist ein Gentleman beim Innenministerium, Silas ist ein radikaler Buchverkäufer und illegaler Klagschriftendrucker. Jede Woche treffen sich die beiden zu einem Tet-a-Tet ohne zu wissen, wer der andere eigentlich ist. Bis Dominic an einer Razzia in Silas Buchladen teilnimmt. Aber auch nachdem sie wissen, wer der andere ist, und trotz aller unterschiedlichen Ansichten und moralischen Dilemma können sie doch nicht voneinander lassen, den die Affäre ist schon lange mehr als nur sexuell. Und dann wird Silas zu allem Überfluss noch beschuldigt an einem mörderischen Plot teilgenommen zu haben und die Anklage droht seinen Angestellten und nun Gentleman Harry gleich mitzureißen.Ich fand diesen Teil wesentlich besser als den ersten.  Ich hatte endlich das Gefühl es geht um wichtige und ernste Themen. Soziale Reformen, Gleichberechtigung, Liebe über moralische Differenzen und soziale Schichten hinweg. Ich fand es wird sehr viel philosophiert und Blake zitiert in diesem Buch.Außerdem hat mir der Sex viel mehr zugesagt. BDSM ist mehr mein Ding, es gab viele Sexszenen, sehr vielfältig. Auch die Romanze ist sehr schon, die starken Differenzen der beiden, die nicht mal eben so aus der Welt geschaffen werden, sondern den beiden immer wieder und wieder im Weg stehen fand ich sehr realistisch und glaubwürdig.
