Only a true rake can offer her redemption…

Will Ransleigh, illegitimate nephew of the Earl of Swynford, has the tall, aristocratic bearing of nobility-and the resourceful cunning of a streetwise rogue. To clear his cousin's name he is on a mission that will take him across the Continent into a world of international intrigue-and the arms of Elodie Lefevre, the society hostess who brought shame to his family.

Is she seductress, spy, or damsel in distress? In the haze of the sensual spell she casts, Will has to keep his wits about him and uncover the true nature of this mysterious Madame....

Ransleigh Rogues

Where these notorious rakes go, scandal always follows...

“Justiss brings an infamous seductress together with an unreformed rogue and lets the sparks fly.”
RT Magazine

Romantic Times Magazine’s “KISS” Award: “If bad boys cause your heart to race, seek out…Julia Justiss’ Will Ransleigh, who attempts to be The Rake to Redeem Her.”

Once a rake...

Known as "Magnificent Max," diplomat Max Ransleigh was famed for his lethal charm until a political betrayal left him exiled from government and his reputation in tatters. He seems a very unlikely savior for a well-bred young lady.

Except that Miss Caroline Denby doesn't want to be saved...she wants to be ruined! To Caroline, getting married is tantamount to a death sentence, and meeting the rakish Max at a house party seems the answer to her prayers... Surely this rogue won't hesitate to put his bad reputation to good use?

Ransleigh Rogues

Where these notorious rakes go, scandal always follows...

“Justiss begins a new series about a group of cousins known as the Ransleigh Rogues, notorious rakes followed by scandal. Book One is outrageous and refreshingly inventive, with a lady in distress, an available rogue, and a marriage of convenience for all. Justiss encapsulates the period, language and mores of the Regency era with great skill.”
—Marie Ferrar, RT Magazine, 4 stars

With the BBC’s recently-released DEATH COMES TO PEMBERLEY, Pride and Prejudice fans have another video variation on their favorite read. But the P.D. James book upon which the movie was based is only one of many, many, many P & P “continuations.” Julia explores some of these expanded fictional worlds in “Ah, Darcy! Ah, Elizabeth! Part the First,” soon to be posted in her “History Refreshed” column.
