Irish Rogues and Rascals From Francis Shackleton to Charlie Haughey Book Excerpt:

Irish history is littered with rogues, larger-than-life characters who range from cheeky scamps to vicious chancers. In Irish Rogues and Rascals, Joseph MacArdle looks at some of the most notorious Irishmen to find out just exactly what a ‘rogue’ is. Is it a dastardly knave, a cheeky rascal or a devilish trickster? Is it a lovable scamp or is it someone who is charming and delightful but with a bit of mischievousness and sauciness thrown into the mix as well? Whatever the answer, the fascinating collection of Irish rogues in Joseph McArdle’s hilarious book Irish Rogues and Rascals embraces vicious chancers at one extreme and lovable imps at the other. These Irish rogues and rascals range from Myler Magrath, a sixteenth-century character who loved wine, women and money – and who was both Catholic Bishop of Down and Connor and Protestant Archbishop of Cashel at the same time through to Tiger Roche, the infamous eighteenth-century rake and duellist who drank and fought his way from Ireland to Cape Town. They include more modern figures such as Paul Singer, a fraudster who tricked countless people out of their hard-earned money in the 1950s, and Des Traynor, the mastermind of Irish tax evasion schemes for much of the late twentieth century , and not forgetting the most accomplished political rogue of modern times, Charles J. Haughey. Joseph McArdle writes with affection about his colourful rogues, usually seeing more to admire in their cleverness and brazenness than to deplore in the results of their conduct. His rogues may not always be honourable – but they usually are fun and their stories make compelling reading.

City of Rogues and Schnorrers Book Excerpt:

Old Odessa, on the Black Sea, gained notoriety as a legendary city of Jewish gangsters and swindlers, a frontier boomtown mythologized for the adventurers, criminals, and merrymakers who flocked there to seek easy wealth and lead lives of debauchery and excess. Odessa is also famed for the brand of Jewish humor brought there in the 19th century from the shtetls of Eastern Europe and that flourished throughout Soviet times. From a broad historical perspective, Jarrod Tanny examines the hybrid Judeo-Russian culture that emerged in Odessa in the 19th century and persisted through the Soviet era and beyond. The book shows how the art of eminent Soviet-era figures such as Isaac Babel, Il'ia Ilf, Evgenii Petrov, and Leonid Utesov grew out of the Odessa Russian-Jewish culture into which they were born and which shaped their lives.

Rose Room Rogues Boxed Set Book Excerpt:

A SCANDALOUS PORTRAIT He took one look at the painting and all the air in the room disappeared. . . The Earl of Huntington (Hunt) is a silent partner in a successful gambling hell run by his two brothers. A well-respected member of the ton, he moves about in Society as an unknown agent for the Crown on its most sensitive matters. Lady Diana is a long-time friend of Hunt's with the ability to embroil herself in difficult matters that require his assistance. Once again she needs his help, but this situation could be a major scandal if discovered. Against his better judgment, Hunt agrees to her scheme, but this time the circumstances cause him to view the woman he’d always considered just a friend in a different way. The passion and desire that sparks between them must be squelched since she would never do as his Countess. Scandal follows her every move... A LADY'S TRUST Can he trust his instincts, or is she playing him for a fool? Driscoll Rose and his two brothers own and run The Rose Room, a well-known and profitable gaming club in London. Unknown to those who visit and spend their money there, the brothers also work for the Crown in positions only known to a mysterious man at the Home Office. Miss Amelia Pence is on the run from her step-brother who has nefarious plans for her. Late one rainy night she crawls into Driscoll’s office window and falls at his feet. Intrigued by the woman, he offers her a job as the only female dealer in the Rose Room. Much to Driscoll's frustration, Amelia is secretive about who she is, and where she lives since she can trust no one. The growing attraction between them and his desire for her is causing him to dismiss the fact that crowds of gamblers swarm her table each evening, but the profits she turns in are not what they should be. Can Driscoll convince Amelia to trust him with her secrets or will he discover a deception that contradicts everything he believes in his heart about heart? Just when he decides to confront her, she disappears. . . AN INCONVENIENT ARRANGEMENT Enemies to Lovers He's a rake and a rogue, owns a gambling club and works occasional assignments for the Crown. She's a language genius with a strong dislike for rakes, gambling, and other nefarious pursuits. When they are paired on an assignment animosity turns to passion. But is passion enough when danger comes to call? A ROSE FOR LAURA A tug of war over a house they each want. One will win, but will they both lose their hearts? Keniel Singh is a bi-racial by-blow of the former Earl of Huntington, unknown to his three brothers, owners of the well-known Rose Room gaming house in London. Raised in Jamaica, Keniel learns of his British heritage on his mother's death bed and sets out to find his family. Miss Laura Benson is an almost spinster who champions children on the London streets. She’s in need of a new home to lease for an orphanage she manages. She finds the perfect house, but Mr. Singh is also viewing the property and he plans to purchase it. When he ends up the owner, he offers to help Laura find a property for her orphans. As the attraction grows between the two while they spend time together searching for a suitable home, Keniel holds back, concerned his heritage would cause problems for Laura among her peers. Raised in a more tolerant home, Laura dismisses his issue and is more troubled by Keniel's tie to the sort of business that is patronized by the very men who create the orphans she loves. Will their differences keep them apart?

History s Most Daring Rogues and Villains Book Excerpt:

Gathered together within the pages of this book is a roguish array of artful tricksters, fantastic fakers, rascally fraudsters and cunning conmen. They all bend the rules and usually the law. Yet however reprehensible their misdeeds, these thoroughly rotten scoundrels often display the very essence of enterprise and adventure. It would be wrong to condone their antics, of course, but it is difficult not to admire their artifice. After all, this sort of raffish crime has spawned scores of anti-heroes in books, movies and TV series. But the stories told here are all true – among the most barely-believable dodgy misdeeds of the past two centuries. Powerful motives drive this book’s extraordinary characters as they rampage on the wrong side of the law. Greed is the most usual, ambition is another, lust sometimes plays a compelling part. But many are compelled by no other cause than a perverted sense of adventure. It is these various forces that link the disparate bunch of characters in this fascinating catalogue of crime. If, as the saying goes, ‘the Devil has the best tunes’, he certainly also has some of the best stories – and here are some of the most startling case histories. Together they’re the diabolically fiendish work of History’s Most Daring Rogues and Villains.

The Revolutionary and the Rogue Book Excerpt:

Perrin deVesey knows pain. As a member of Crimson Rose, a secret club for men who love men, he’s taken the vow “to stand and shield.” Standing together during these perilous times is the only thing keeping their necks from the guillotine. Now their leader is using the club to rescue wrongly accused traitors. After losing a past lover to an unjust execution, the decision to support this treasonous cause is easy...until a devastatingly handsome Committee Officer complicates Perrin’s whole world. Officer Henri Chevalier hates aristocrats. But the man he finds while investigating Crimson Rose is more than just wealthy and fancily clothed. He’s a rogue that could take him to the heart of the uprising and stop it before it starts. His plan to get close to Perrin and steal his secrets backfires, though, when Henri finds himself falling for the damned aristo and his dangerous smile. His heart is even more conflicted as he learns the truth behind their cause...and the truth his own people have been hiding. Together they must make the choice—to stand and shield at any cost—and their love might be the deadliest weapon in all of France.
