 In the sordid streets of Victorian London, unwanted desire flares between two bitter enemies brought together by a deadly secret.

Crusading journalist Nathaniel Roy is determined to expose spiritualists who exploit the grief of bereaved and vulnerable people. First on his list is the so-called Seer of London, Justin Lazarus. Nathaniel expects him to be a cheap, heartless fraud. He doesn’t expect to meet a man with a sinful smile and the eyes of a fallen angel—or that a shameless swindler will spark his desires for the first time in years.

Justin feels no remorse for the lies he spins during his séances. His gullible clients simply bore him. Hostile, disbelieving, utterly irresistible Nathaniel is a fascinating challenge. And as their battle of wills and wits heats up, Justin finds he can’t stop thinking about the man who’s determined to ruin him.

But Justin and Nathaniel are linked by more than their fast-growing obsession with one another. They are both caught up in an aristocratic family’s secrets, and Justin holds information that could be lethal. As killers, fanatics, and fog close in, Nathaniel is the only man Justin can trust—and, perhaps, the only man he could love.

An Unnatural Vice (Sins of the Cities, #2)He was a journalist on a quest to uncover charlatans exploiting the grief and pocketbooks of those who have lost loved ones. His number one target is the Seer of London, Justin Lazarus, but Nathaniel Roy had no idea what he would discover when he went undercover.

These two “enemies” would find themselves wrapped up in aristocratic intrigue where no one can be trusted, except each other, but will their growing feelings cloud their judgement? What really goes on behind the London fog?

Set in Victorian London, AN UNNATURAL VICE is a thriller mystery wrapped around an unlikely M/M love affair between two men initially determined to undermine each other. K.J. Charles knows how to keep a tale dark, weighted with rich details and an atmosphere of shrouded mystery. This is not a fast-paced tale, and at times seems to lag along a little, but definitely has that historical feel on the streets of London.

I received an ARC edition from Loveswept in exchange for my honest and voluntary review.
