Hi I am trying to get a series of books, I ordered the one in the system listed as 1st in the series, 'The Dangerous Gentleman (Rogues of Regent Street, Bk 1) but is actually the 3rd.  How can this be corrected?

On the book's page, under More Options, you can choose Edit Book Data and change the title there.  In the reason for edit box, you should put a link to this page in.  http://www.fantasticfiction.co.uk/l/julia-london/ That's the only place I've found that shows it as the third in the series.  Amazon and Goodreads both have it as #1.

Thanks Jenna, It seems that the first two books might be prequels, on the authors website they are listed separately, and not under the Rogue's of Regent Street, it is just confusing that  The Dangerous Gentleman and Devil's Love are listed as first in series here at PBS.

Yikes, one of those.  Sometimes when the author writes pre-quills, the publisher goes back and renumbers the series order...so confusing.

On the author's own website, The Dangerous Gentleman is listed as Book #1 of the Rogues of Regent Street. I would recommend NOT changing it here.

I love fantasticfiction.com ..... but I have noticed errors in their series lists before (for books I have read myself and can see where they have gone wrong in their list).

Anyway, I have all those Julia London books ... granted its been a while since I read them, but I do not think that the first two are part of  that series at all.

Here is the list from Julia London's web site:

I won't change anything.  I'm afraid of mucking something up.
