From the Author
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!
