When war ends, violence stays alive. The roads toward peace and significance still lead nowhere. Perhaps the aftermath is the best time to blame those who refused to carry guns and take sides. How do you deaden the pain of trusting somebody who is trying to destroy you? How are you to know the difference when your enemy says he loves you? And so begins the battle for survival.

Steve Dane, The Rogue Gentleman, an international adventurer who rights wrongs wherever he finds them, fails to prevent a young woman’s abduction. But that does not stop him from finding her. Officially hired by the girl’s father, Dane battles gunman and evades police as he discovers the decades-old vendetta behind the kidnapping; he soon learns that the grudge is just the beginning and peels back the layers of a more fiendish plan that goes beyond a desire for vengeance. Assisted by his lover, the luscious Nina Talikova, Steve Dane dives head first, the only way he knows how, into a conspiracy of terror the likes of which the world has never seen, orchestrated by a powerful and mysterious woman known only as “The Duchess”. When Dane finds The Duchess he will sacrifice anything, including his life, to destroy her.

What they’re saying about it:
*
“The Rogue Gentleman is Steve Dane, a former Marine, a former CIA agent, a former Mercenary commander who is now a freelance trouble shooter with his girlfriend Nina Talikova, a former KGB agent. The pair is fun to read. I was reminded of Michael Weston and Fiona Glenane from Burn Notice and Simon Templar and Patricia Holm from the Saint stories. Nina is quite blood thirsty and frequently complains that she doesn’t get enough action and teases Dane when he looks at other women. In fact she declares the young woman Steve is looking at has barely stopped growing just before she gets kidnapped [which] sends the pair on this adventure. Dane is equally intriguing with a clearly defined history as a Marine, a CIA agent, mercenary commander and now world traveling trouble shooter but there are still mysteries about just why he went freelance and just what connection he has to the President of the United States (who bares some resemblance to the first George Bush). As an opening novel this really sets up the series to come with hints at mysterious pasts for both Steve and Nina and some intriguing possibilities for future adventures. Brian Drake’s writing is really enjoyable with a couple of nice tips of the hat to Jerry Ahern. I really enjoyed this book and look forward to more adventures of The Rogue Gentleman.” [Amazon Review]

The assassination of heroes was once a warning—for an invasion that nearly  destroyed the world. On the brink of total victory, the black horde mysteriously  vanished, leaving terrified survivors . . . and rumors. As the centuries passed,  the holocaust faded into legend, and finally myth. But death is stalking heroes  once more, and only a miracle will allow life to survive again . . . a miracle  named Elseerian.

What they’re saying:

“Great read and well written book. pays homage to classic works of Fantasy like  The Lord of the Rings, as well as more current Writers like R. A. Salvatore.  takes me back to playing Dungeons and Dragons with my friends in High School. I  am eagerly awaiting the next chapter in this story. A must read is an  understatement.”

“I was surprised how good it was! I was prepared for something  that would, in the very least, entertain me. I didn’t think it would be so well  written and be as detailed as it was. The author went to great lengths to create  real life, believable characters and to describe scenery and actions scenes to  such great detail, the whole book had such beautiful imagery, you can see it  all. The beginning of the first chapter is beautiful, I could definitely see it  on screen. Not only that, but the story had me at the edge of my seat near the  end, I love how it all comes together so well! I can’t wait to find out what  happens in the next book! Excitement.”

OpenBookSociety Review Brought to you by OBS reviewer Angie:
*
“This was an amazing journey that I literally couldn’t put down. I wasn’t sure about reading a book about Angels and heaven. I’m wary of things that are too “preachy” but this book is probably the furthest thing from that. I started reading at 9:00 pm and didn’t put the book down til I was finished at 4:00 am.
*
Waters has spent countless hours researching the eras she writes about. The writing was amazing. I was transported throughout the world and had vivid images of the settings of all the stories. I was moved to tears in more than one story. In the end I didn’t feel preached to at all, but I did have a completely different perspective on what the afterlife might be like. I have to read Infinite Devotion (book #2) immediately!”
