Berkley, Jul 2003, 6.99, 421 pp.
In 1792 England, his distraught father informs ten year old Gabriel Manning that family honor is at stake as men he called friends betrayed him and England. His distressed dad sends his beloved wife and their son to America before killing himself.
In 1815, Gabriel finds it ironic that his enemy England informs him that he is now a Marquess. He sees this as the avenue to finally avenge his father by destroying the three rogues who ruined his sire. However, actress Merry Anders seeks retribution from the three members of the group that ruined her mother. When Gabriel and Merry collide, a new feeling begins to overwhelm the hatred that fills both their mutual hearts as they fall in love at an untimely moment.
This Regency romance will thrill sub-genre fans because of the attitudes of the lead couple. Gabriel and Merry are a delightful pair, as both detest the weakness they perceive that love causes. The duet individually recognizes those positive feelings for someone else only impedes their respective quests. Patricia Potter has provided a character driven story that her audience will enjoy as they find themselves DANCING WITH A ROGUE and his actress.
