Publisher's Summary

Sir Philip Rookwood is the disgrace of the county. He's a rake and an atheist, and the rumors about his hellfire club, the Murder, can only be spoken in whispers. (Orgies. It's orgies.)  

Guy Frisby and his sister, Amanda, live in rural seclusion after a family scandal. But when Amanda breaks her leg in a riding accident, she's forced to recuperate at Rookwood Hall, where Sir Philip is hosting the Murder.  

Guy rushes to protect her, but the Murder aren't what he expects. They're educated, fascinating people, and the notorious Sir Philip turns out to be charming, kind - and dangerously attractive.  

In this private space where anything goes, the longings Guy has stifled all his life are impossible to resist...and so is Philip. But all too soon, the rural rumor mill threatens both Guy and Amanda. The innocent country gentleman has lost his heart to the bastard baronet - but does he dare lose his reputation too?  

Contains mature themes.

Not my cup of tea

I’m not really into this type of book. If you like gay romances this is for you

You had me at orgies!

KJ Charles, you had me at orgies!

What a sinfully delicious book! In the last year I have become a big fan of KJ Charles, and particularly the audiobooks. I have been waiting for this one to come out in audio, and it was worth every second of the wait.

The debaucher. The debauchee. The badarse woman. All of them thumbing their nose at convention, and doing it in a delightful way.

This was a fun regency-style romp that had me smiling and laughing in some most inappropriate social situations.

I love this narrator. Cornell Collins has that great balance of naivety and sauciness. He made me feel like I was sitting in the drawing room, drinking tea (or in the case of these characters, something a lot stronger).

This book made a road trip in the rain this weekend all the more enjoyable. I hope we get more light hearted rom-comish stories in the future.

KJ and Cornell Collins winning combo.

What a great combination of
Narrator and Author.
I Very much liked this.
He also narrated the Magpie Lord series so this reminds me a bit of that.

A Delicious MM Regency Tale

KJ Charles does a beautiful job with this sweet Regency tale of an honorable and virginal country gentleman and the disreputable man he falls in love with. I loved the narrator's voices, especially Guy's.

just a light fun and enjoyable little tale.

All was as it should've been. I recommend for something light with a great performance.

Fantastic all around!

Absolutely loved the story! But the narration was perfect! Cornell Collins captured all the tones - ranging from Phillip's sardonic amusement, Guy's innocent outrage to Corvin's rakishness and John's long suffering tolerance of the foibles of his friends. Mr Collins was the perfect choice to perform the story.

Absolutely brilliant

I loved Band Sinister when it came out. I've been anxiously waiting for the audiobook and I must say - it does NOT disappoint. Cornell Collins is a perfect narrator for KJ Charles's wit. The voices for each character are wonderful (though I'll admit that Phillip's voice took some time to get used to). Corvin's is probably my favorite. "Make cheese!"

If you take the sex out of it, it reminds me of historical romances I read in my teens. Charles did an exceptional job of creating an MM Romance within the bounds of those older historicals. Absolutely fantastic.

I highly suggest it. Join Guy, Phillip, Amanda and the Murder for a wonderful tale.

Brilliant!!

Audio Review

Well done Cornell Collins aka Matthew Lloyd Davies for restoring my faith in narrators. I loved this story so much, and to be honest, was quite annoyed when I saw who was narrating it BUT pulled up my big girl pants and decided to take a chance on it. FAB-U-LOUS!! I particularly liked his voice for Lord Corvin, although his West Indian accent for John Raven could do with some work [sounded more Welsh than anything 😉]. Aunt Beatrice was suitably awful...as was her dreadful husband, and the Reverend whatever his name was, predictably boring. I absolutely ADORE Guy, Sir Philip and especially that little strumpet of a sister Amanda. Fantastic.

Book Review

5 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 from me...oh, and 5 💜💛💙💚🧡 too for Philip and Guy's lovely, gentle romance.

The laughs, the sarcasm, the naughty Latin words [former bored Latin scholar here hehe], the comeuppance for the dreadful Aunt Beatrice 😝, but most of all the brilliant Murder [read the story, you'll then understand the reference] Hellfire Club and more importantly its witty members, who were supportive of Philip to a man.

Lots of authors try to imitate KJ Charles, but she reigns supreme as far as this reader is concerned for her marvellous wit and delicious characters. Bravo!!
