Among his eccentric though strictly principled group of friends, Lord Richard Vane is the confidant on whom everyone depends for advice, moral rectitude, and discreet assistance. Yet when Richard has a problem, he turns to his valet, a fixer of unparalleled genius - and the object of Richard's deepest desires. If there is one rule a gentleman must follow, it is never to dally with servants. But when David is close enough to touch, the rules of class collide with the basest sort of animal instinct: overpowering lust.
For David Cyprian, burglary and blackmail are as much in a day's work as bootblacking - anything for the man he's devoted to. But the one thing he wants for himself is the one thing Richard refuses to give: his heart. With the tension between them growing to be unbearable, David's seemingly incorruptible master has left him no choice. Putting his finely honed skills of seduction and manipulation to good use, he will convince Richard to forget all about his well-meaning objections and give in to sweet, sinful temptation.

Lord Richard Vane & his valet David Cyprian story.
The third (full) instalment in K. J. Charles's m/m Regency romance series Society of Gentlemen. Centres on Lord Richard Vane and his valet David Cyprian.
From the moment that you start listening to the narrator Matthew Lloyd Davies, the characters and the story come alive from the pages. Transporting you to period London, where if you know the right man for the job...anything is possible!

Where does A Gentleman's Position rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
Easily in the Top Five. Actually, in order to keep my top five from being taken up by the three books in this series, I include them as a group. They are all extraordinary, but this one is tremendous.
What did you like best about this story?
The absolute usurpation of various tropes and expectations based on the appearance and status of the characters. Charles always has a strong command of sexual negotiation and politics, but watching two intrinsically Alpha personalities with extremely different psychological expressions find common ground is incredible. Humanizing Richard in particular who has been more of an entity than a person presiding over the Ricardians, is a genuine triumph.
Have you listened to any of Matthew Lloyd Davies’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
His work on this series of books has been absolutely outstanding. His commitment and delivery are impeccable, making everything from seditous politics, printmaking, to sex vivid and immensely enjoyable to listen to.

Wow! I'm really at a loss for words. I just loved everything about this and Richard is redeemed. It wasn't anything like I expected and Richard had better never get on his fox's bad side or he is in big trouble.
My love for Silas is unending. I love that man. He had some great scenes in this book.
Matthew Lloyd Davies has become my favorite British narrators. I highly recommend this whole series!
