Title: A Gentleman's Memoir
Author: A. J. Linn
Release Date: August 11, 2014
You may already know Donovan Hart from A Gentleman’s Affair and A Gentleman’s Secret. Here is your chance to get to know him a bit more personally, more...behind the scenes, or under the sheets, as I like to say.In A Gentleman's Memoir, you will get a glimpse into his past. You will see Donovan tackle loss, love, heartbreak, and sexual exploration. You see him grow from a directionless, 25-year-old, entitled, partying, beach bum and well-known Malibu ladies’ man into a man who decides to take on the world...or at least, La Fuga.
Spanning seven years of his life, from the death of his beloved mother, to his relationship with Danielle Hughes -aka cheating whore- to the sexual escapades that go beyond even his wildest imagination, A Gentleman’s Memoir, written in Donovan’s own words, may just shock you.
Possibly just as much as it did him.
No shortage of wild, wet, and more-than-willing participants fill the dark, smoky adult club that Mike and Russ dragged me to. Dragged may be too strong of a word, I went willingly. True, this would be my first experience in a club like this, and I even surprised myself at just how much I enjoyed everything about it...
The large wooden stage at the front of the club would soon become the platform for the uninhibited, the exhibitionist, and at times, as I quickly found out, the perverse. Play parties, as they were commonly referred to in these adult clubs, were the main attraction.
Sex acts in this public forum were the norm for most here, but for me, the closest I ever got to sex in public was a lifeguard tower or backseat of a car. Amateur stuff to this crowd. I was about to enter into a world that some have only heard about, and certainly never talked about. Most have probably said, 'No way, I'd never do that!' But hey...don't knock it if you've never tried it.
I wouldn't take the stage on that first night, but it wouldn't be long before I did. Trust me when I say that I had to work my way up to that, but when I did finally decide to grace a stage with my presence, it would turn out to be the most exhilarating, titillating moment of my life, and I would quickly become addicted. Addicted to the eyes that were watching with such intent. Addicted to the rush that I never knew would come with the act of exhibitionism. Just plain addicted.

Author AJ Linn began writing as a fanfiction blogger on Twitter as @FuckedUpFifty_ with an incredible FSOG blog written from Christian Grey's point of view (http://christiangreypov.wordpress.com/). At the encouragement of his followers, he decided to write a novel and Donovan Hart, the charming, handsome, sexy protagonist of The Gentleman's Series was brought to life.
His first novel, A Gentleman's Affair, was published in May, 2013...even as he was writing his second novel, A Gentleman's Secret, which was published in December, 2013. His unique style and boundless creativity have produced a series of books that will hang in readers' memories forever. His latest, A Gentleman's Memoir, a novella, published in August, 2014, is a prequel to the first novel, and will give readers an in-depth look at Donovan's past, adding even more to the story of Donovan Hart.
After the release of A Gentleman's Memoir, he plans to take a long, well-deserved break, and with the upcoming Fifty Shades of Grey movie in 2015, he will be re-visiting that series again on his blog.
