A Gentleman's Position (Society of Gentlemen #3) by K.J. Charles
Power, privilege, and the rigid rules of class leave two hearts yearning for connection in the sizzling new Society of Gentlemen novel from K. J. Charles.
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.
It's a refreshing for me to be back to historical after some contemporary. And this one was quite good.
Until 60% Richard was a jerk and I wanted to slap his head for David's sake. And David, raised a valet by his Mother, can only accepted his position in Richard's life.
Or is it not?
It was understandable that being gay (or sodomite) in that era was a forbidden laissons, and cannot be exposed on that matter.
So, when the fire was on after 4,5 years of silence, Richard and David [finally declared their love to each other (of course, David always the first to say) (hide spoiler)].
But, there was some problems need to be solved before everything clear their way to a happy ending.
I didn't really care about the stupid problems they're involved. I only care about David's future, well, with Richard of course.
Actually, it was quite satisfying. Again, considering they're living in 1820. Ugh.
It was a good read, I picked the right book at the right time.
This is the book you need to read in silence, concentrate, and no one's to disturb.
He's awesome like that.
