Hello gentle readers! I’m so honored to be taking part in a special cover reveal of Dangerous to Know today! A few weeks ago we shared the announcement that Christina Boyd and a fabulous team of authors were at it again and creating a new anthology! *woot woot*
But while that news is and of itself extremely exciting…it was topped by the fact that this anthology was going to spotlight a group of characters that really haven’t had much opportunity to “have their say” yet. The bad boys who steal hearts, break promises, and are all around rascals!! We’ve seen many books take us into the hearts and minds of Jane Austen’s heroes, now we finally get to do the same with her ‘rakes and gentleman rogues!’
Dangerous to Know: Jane Austen’s Rakes and Gentleman Rogues
Expected Release Date: November 15th
~ Book Description ~
“One has all the goodness, and the other all the appearance of it.” —Jane Austen
Jane Austen’s masterpieces are littered with unsuitable
gentlemen—Willoughby, Wickham, Churchill, Crawford,
Tilney, Elliot, et al.—adding color and depth to her plots
but often barely sketched. Have you never wondered about
the pasts of her rakes, rattles, and gentlemen rogues?
Surely, there’s more than one side to their stories.
It is a universal truth, we are captivated by smoldering
looks, daring charms … a happy-go-lucky, cool confidence.
All the while, our loyal confidants are shouting on deaf ears:
“He is a cad—a brute—all wrong!” But is that not how
tender hearts are broken…by loving the undeserving?
How did they become the men Jane Austen created?
In this romance anthology, eleven Austenesque authors
expose the histories of Austen’s anti-heroes.
Dangerous to Know: Jane Austen’s Rakes & Gentlemen Rogues
is a titillating collection of Georgian era short stories—
a backstory or parallel tale off-stage of canon—
whilst remaining steadfast to the characters
we recognize in Austen’s great works.
What say you? Everyone may be attracted to a bad boy…
even temporarily…but heaven help us if we marry one.
And without further ado….here is the big reveal!!!
