    exciting conclusion to an entertianing trilogy

    In 1834, one of the four Rogues of Regent St. Phillip Rothembow forces a duel with his friend Adrian Spence and dies. The three survivors, Adrian, Arthur Christian, and Julian Dare all take it badly and three years later still grieve Phillip¿s actions. <P>In 1837, Phillip¿s dad angrily confronts Arthur over a legal document that shows the deceased bought worthless Scottish property that has taxes in arrears. Rothembow obtains a vow from Arthur to fix it. Still feeling guilty and needing to escape his sister-in-law¿s matchmaking efforts, Arthur travels to Edinburgh to evict the current tenant, Mr. Fraser. Fraser is dead, but his wife Kerry McKinnon receives the eviction notice. Apparently her late spouse owes taxes and money on a loan. Kerry visits Lord Montcrieffe who offers his dimwitted son in marriage in order to pay the debt. Kerry refuses but while waiting for the public carriage meets Arthur. Thinking he is a highwayman, she shoots him. Now their story really begins. <P>THE BEAUTIFUL STRANGER is an exciting conclusion to the Rogues of Regent St. trilogy.(see THE DANGEROUS GENTLEMAN and THE RUTHLESS CHARMER). The story line is loaded with action and romance as the charming lead couple struggles with their feelings for one another. The support cast including the return of stars and secondary players from the previous tales brings to life the era as well as adding depth to Kerry and Arthur. Julia London has written a powerful final act to a strong miniseries and, in doing so, demonstrates why historical romances are so much fun to read. <P>Harriet Klausner

    Fantastic Historical

    It is 1837, and Arthur Christian, younger son of a duke, still holds himself responsible for the death of his friend Phillip three years prior. In and effort to cleanse his soul and sooth his sense of responsibility, he travels to Scotland to tie up some loose ends relating to Phillip's legal affairs. <br><br> While in Scotland, Arthur happens upon Kerry McKinnon, a beautiful young widow who is stranded along the road where Arthur is traveling. Circumstances force the pair to return to Glenbaden, the home Kerry is struggling to keep though faced with insurmountable debt. <br><br> When tragedy strikes, and Kerry must return to England with Arthur, she comes face to face with the realities separating them. Will their love for one another be strong enough to endure their differences? <br><br> Part of the allure of this novel is that the hero and heroine are from such totally different backgrounds, but this ceases to matter as their purpose becomes one in working the land of Kerry's home. Julia London cleverly uses this earthy setting where Kerry and Arthur are able to explore their attraction for one another without the artifice of the London drawing room. <br><br> The protagonists are so complex and multifaceted that the reader can almost feel the emotion seeping from every page. For characters and a story to fall in love with, don't miss this latest by Julia London-she's definitely done it again.

    Good conclusion to the trilogy!

    In the books Ruthless charmer and Dangerous Gentleman we saw the stories of Ardian and Julian, two of the four men known as the Rogues of Regent Street. One of the remaining two was dead, Phillip. Now we get to see the story of the last in the group, Arthur! <BR><BR> Lord Arthur Christian went to Scotland to tie up the loose ends of a deal Phillip had started before his death. He had no way of knowing that Phillip's partner was also dead. He also had no way of knowing that the widow he had grown to love was the very person he was about to evict! <BR><BR> Kerry McKinnon was shocked to learn of her late husband's debts! She went to her rich neighbor, Baron Cameron Moncrieffe, for help. But Cameron was owed money as well. He would only help her if she married his slow minded son. She refused. She ended up killing the son in self defense when he tried to rape her. <BR><BR> Arthur whisked Kerry to London to save her from hanging. But Kerry could not live in London. She was out of place and unaccepted. She longed for Scotland, a land that wanted her dead! <BR><BR> **** There is much more to this story than I let on. Yet to tell more would ruin it. Here is a story that made my day fly by as I quickly turned pages to see what would happen next! Wonderfully done! ****

    Julia London Just Keeps Getting Better and Better!

    One of the biggest problems with finding a wonderful new author is their lack of a backlist! The Beautiful Stranger is only the fifth release from this woman of extraordinary talent and already I can¿t wait for her next book! I first met Lord Arthur Christian in Wicked Angel, admired him in The Dangerous Gentleman, was intrigued by him in The Ruthless Charmer and absolutely fell in love with him during The Beautiful Stranger. Haunted by guilt and goaded by his friends, Arthur travels to Scotland to clear Phillip¿s name and to escape a doomed relationship. Fresh air, beautiful scenery and a change of pace is exactly what he is looking for -- hopeless directions, a gunshot wound and a maddening beauty is what he finds in Scotland. Kerry McKinnon is having a really bad day. ·Her late husband Fraser has left a mountain of debt. ·James Regis, Esq. has sent her an eviction notice from her home, leaving Glenbaden and her clan to the mercy of Moncrieffe. ·She has been left stranded on a deserted road for hours waiting hours for the Crieffe Coach. ·And now she is responsible for shooting an unarmed gentleman - who just happens to be the most gorgeous man she has ever laid eyes on. What a day! Little does Kerry know this handsome gentleman is Lord Arthur Christian, a Rogue of Regent Street, wealthy in his own right, son and brother of a duke. Little does she know that she will lose her heart to the man responsible for her eviction! You will fall in love with this story. The characters leap off the page and jump square into your heart. Kerry is all the more beautiful for her charming personality and practical nature. Arthur is everything you want in a man, and a few things you don¿t. When circumstances force Kerry to flee with Arthur to England, she believes he is the answer to her prayers, but as his optimistic view of the Ton causes life to crash down around them, Kerry is sent running right back into hell. Only now does Arthur realize how very much he loves and needs her - but will it be too late? Will he be in time to save her very life? The Beautiful Stranger illustrates the talent of this gifted author. You will adore Arthur and Kerry, enjoy meeting new people, old friends, and of course the occasional visit from Phillip¿s ghost! Grab a pillow or pull up a chair and read this series. I promise you will enjoy yourself!
