 About the Book 

Gentle Reader,I know Ive committed an unpardonable act. I should never have read Miss Liza Cranshaws letters. I assure you I never intended to wrong her. But now that Ive learned of her desperate straits, how can I ignore her plight?Miss CranshawMoreGentle Reader,I know Ive committed an unpardonable act. I should never have read Miss Liza Cranshaws letters. I assure you I never intended to wrong her. But now that Ive learned of her desperate straits, how can I ignore her plight?Miss Cranshaw is the daughter of a wealthy merchant. She is being blackmailed into marriage by a wretched nobleman greedy for her dowry. Naturally, I cannot ignore a damsel in distress --- especially one so lovely and so charming --- and am determined to prevent this disastrous union for her sake, though I must admit she has stirred my soul in ways I had not thought possible.I am aware of my reputation as a rake and one who has never had more than a passing acquaintance with constancy. And I admit I am a stones throw away from debtors prison --- through no fault of my own, I hasten to add. Misfortune, however, is no impediment to heroism. I vow, Gentle Reader, that I will restore my fortune and rescue Miss Cranshaw --- before I land in prison. Just, I beg of you, do not tell her about the letters!Very truly yours,Jack Fairchild, Esq.
