Publisher's Summary

In the first novel of an explosive new series from K. J. Charles, a young gentleman and his elegant mentor fight for love in a world of wealth, power, and manipulation. When he learns that he could be the heir to an unexpected fortune, Harry Vane rejects his past as a radical fighting for government reform and sets about wooing his lovely cousin. But his heart is captured instead by the most beautiful, chic man he's ever met: the dandy tasked with instructing him in the manners and style of the ton. Harry's new station demands conformity - yet the one thing he desires is a taste of the wrong pair of lips. After witnessing firsthand the horrors of Waterloo, Julius Norreys sought refuge behind the luxurious facade of the upper crust. Now he concerns himself exclusively with the cut of his coat and the quality of his boots. And yet his protégé is so unblemished by cynicism that he inspires the first flare of genuine desire Julius has felt in years. He cannot protect Harry from the worst excesses of society. But together they can withstand the high price of passion.

Fabulous MM Recency, superbly narrated

I loved A Fashionable Indulgence when I read it and reviewed it for Prism Book Alliance and this audiobook is superb, its one of the best MM audio books I have ever listened to. The narrator is brilliant and his Julius is just perfect. It's a wonderful story and I just don't have the words to convey how good this audiobook is. If you love historical MM and audio listen to this, you won't disappointed.

Absolutely terrific!

What did you like most about A Fashionable Indulgence?

The historical content is superbly and meticulously researched and the sensual relationship between the main characters is off the scale.


What other book might you compare A Fashionable Indulgence to, and why?

Other than A Seditious Affair by the the same author, I have none to compare it with.


Which scene did you most enjoy?

I can't pinpoint one - the whole book from start to finish is simply superb.


Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It was a very moving read/listen, I cried more than I laughed.


Any additional comments?

The narrator, Matthew Lloyd Davies, performed rather than read the characters' parts. He is a very talented actor, in the wrong hands this would have been a disaster. He captured the real and growing love between the protagonists in a most tender and sensual manner. One of my best reads/listens of 2015 topped possibly by A Seditious Affair.
