Jane Austen’s Rakes & Gentlemen Rogues.

“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.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

From beginning to end, I loved the well-drawn characters, the clever plot twists, and my time well spent with these bad boys from Austen’s literature.


An intriguing bouquet of short stories from Jane Austen’s rakes and gentlemen. Romantic, passionate and thrilling stories from some of the JAFF societies best authors.


This collection of Jane Austin’s rakes and rogues is another treasure to add to your shelves. I was instantly drawn into the world’s of these tempting men and loved each. Jane Austin fans will be sorely challenged to find a favorite.


The order of the stories was great, as was the rating scale. I appreciated the editor’s attention to identify the tame versus the more rake-ish stories. Each of the authors did a marvelous job delving into these men who we’ve come to imagine we know because of their actions in our favorite Jane Austen masterpieces.


If you’re the type to crush on the “bad boys” or you love seeing a known rake tasting their own medicine, then this book is for you. Dangerous to Know is an absolute delightful read!
