Product Description

From the Author

A Romantic Times Top Pick!
The Dangerous Gentleman is the first in the Rogues of Regent Street, a trilogy in which the recklessness of youth is explored as three men in 1830's England come to realize how easily life and love may be squandered.

These men of privilege, who have earned their reputations through reckless living and a scandalous disregard for society, are rocked by a horrible tragedy that forces them to face what they have become -- and their mortality.

In The Dangerous Gentleman, the tragedy throws Adrian Spence into a downward spiral of guilt, revenge, and a desperate search for mercy. He lashes out at everything and everyone around him as he struggles to cope, and it is only through the dogged persistence of innocent Lilliana Dashell that he slowly begins to understand what he has truly sought all his life. But does it come too late? The forces of despair he set into motion have already begun to sweep them under...

I hope you enjoy reading The Dangerous Gentleman as much as I enjoyed torturing poor Adrian! And if you think I did a number on him, just wait for Julian's story in the fall and Arthur's next spring!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Adrian Spence was verbally abused by his father as a child, as was his mother. He is conscious of the preference of his father for his younger brother Benedict and knows that his father is simply waiting for an opportunity to disinherit him - not that wealthy Adrian will be left a pauper, but he is very fond of the entailed family estate. Sure enough, one of Adrian's best friends, who has been on a downward spiral for some time, manages to manipulate Adrian into defending his own life by taking that of Phillip's. Although clearly self defence, Adrian's father seizes the opportunity to replace Adrian with his brother in the succession. Adrian is already weighed down with grief and guilt - now he can add rage to the mix.
In retaliation, Adrian marries the woman his brother is about to offer for - Lilliana Dashell. Lilliana has long held Adrian as her ideal, and it doesn't take much for her to be persuaded to marry him. After the wedding the mask is off, and Lilliana realises that the ideals Adrian was spouting when he proposed were not how he really feels - indeed she begins to wonder if her new husband has any feelings at all. Adrian recognises the mistake he made in marrying a 'country bumpkin' to get back at his brother. Benedict shows up with his own agenda to influence the two. And then Adrian lets Lilliana know the real reason for the marriage - revenge, and that only.
All this and we're probably only a quarter into the book. Adrian is a very complex, damaged character. Contrast this with Lilliana, who is open, kind and compassionate, and is it any wonder Adrian lashes out at her? It is only after Adrian is blinded in an accident, he comes to truly 'see' the value of his new wife. He has often regretted how badly he has treated her, but can't seem to stop himself.

A strange love triangle in which the "hero" of course does not recognise the fact that he is in love. A marriage based on revenge between brothers may seem a strange basis for a book but Julie London makes it work very well, add to the mix our heroine, who is a bit slow to realise everything is not all is seems between the brothers. Perhaps not one of Julie London's best, but well worth the read.

The story was fun and enjoyable to read, but the publishers have definitely let Julia London down. There are a lot of typos throughout the book (increasing as you progress). It is obvious that when the book was transferred into an e-book format, the editors just weren't doing their job. For example, "y" is very often scanned as "j", full stops were frequently missing and the quotation marks (") are often made into a slash+apostrophe (/'). Unforgivable.

What can i say i expected so much from the book and found it to be well a little disappointing. My main reason i did not find the heroine to my liking she was weak and couldn't see what was happening. However it had a good sub-plot, which was the cause of his unfeeling nature,and that was what kept me reading.
