OMG. Yes, that KJ Charles, who pretty much swept the Rainbow Awards this year. /fans self furiously.
Look at what she had to say about Rite of Summer, over on Goodreads!
“Stephen and Joshua are both lovely characters, and Stephen’s relationship with Evander is very well done. What’s super special about this is the historical grounding, though. All the MCs are artists, not aristos, and the Georgian gay underworld is really well delineated. I don’t think I’ve seen the Vere Street Coterie mentioned in a romance before now, and the consequences of that ghastly (offpage) event are brilliantly worked through. Really solid read from an exciting new to me author.”
(I may be a little bit excited. She likes me!)
