Short & Tweet Review: Think of England by K.J. Charles



20822874Lie back and think of England

England, 1904. Two years ago, Captain Archie Curtis lost his friends, fingers, and future to a terrible military accident. Alone, purposeless and angry, Curtis is determined to discover if he and his comrades were the victims of fate, or of sabotage.

Curtis’s search takes him to an isolated, ultra-modern country house, where he meets and instantly clashes with fellow guest Daniel da Silva. Effete, decadent, foreign, and all-too-obviously queer, the sophisticated poet is everything the straightforward British officer fears and distrusts.

As events unfold, Curtis realizes that Daniel has his own secret intentions. And there’s something else they share—a mounting sexual tension that leaves Curtis reeling.

As the house party’s elegant facade cracks to reveal treachery, blackmail and murder, Curtis finds himself needing clever, dark-eyed Daniel as he has never needed a man before…

Warning: Contains explicit male/male encounters, ghastly historical attitudes, and some extremely stiff upper lips.

Fast paced, humorous, touching, twisty and romantic – Think of England is a fantastic Historical M/M romance novella that’s not just about the romantic hook-up.

Loved it!

  2. Good to know that this novella has more going for it that just a romantic angle. I've only read one M/M book, and that was last year, so I think I am well past due for another.

    1. I need more than just sex. This was short but the relationship and mystery were done very well.
