George Rowlands, an aspiring young painter meets the
charismatic Sir Henry Wallace who invites him to draw his
sculpture collection and his good-looking valet Gregorio
Franchese. Patronised by Wallace to study at the Royal
Academy, George is befriended by the aloof John McCarther,
assistant to the eccentric painter, Henry Fuseli. Meanwhile,
Lady Arabella Wallace becomes increasingly suspicious of her
husband’s enthusiasm for his new protégé.
When a male brothel, the White Swan, is exposed, Henry
Wallace receives a letter of extortion in George’s
handwriting. After Gregorio Franchese is found murdered,
George is suspected when erotic drawings of Gregorio are
discovered in his possession. Will he face the gallows, or
will self-sacrifice and truth save his fate?
Mixing history with passion and drama, and touching on the
dark and erotic aspects of the all-male Royal Academy, The
Pretty Gentleman is a historical thriller which explores the
themes of love, power, betrayal and truth in Regency
