TITLE: The League of Rogues
GENRE: Regency Romance
In a secluded room of a Gentleman's Club on Berkeley Street, a meeting was taking place between five men. To a casual observer they appeared to be nothing more than a dedicated band of friends who met during their studies at Cambridge, but these men of power and influence had a deeper bond.
Many years ago their enemies had dubbed them as "The League of Rogues" and the five men took the name with wicked delight. Each month, the League of Rogues met at their reserved room in the club to catch up on gossip, rile each other with threats of marriages and other activities that were often dubious in nature.
At that moment two of these rogues were engaged in a game of Ecarte, while another pair watched and betted on the game, the fifth member had not yet arrived.
"Charles...you did say Godric was coming," Lord Ashton Lennox, one of the two card players asked the other. As always, he was concerned with the matters of the other members. Godric's absence was unusual and Ashton was prone to worry where Godric was concerned. Godric was
the most volatile in temper of the league. Ashton was a thirty-three year old Baron with ash blond hair and blue eyes that could sparkle with delight or frost with displeasure.
