Smooth Criminals

The pages of romance are populated by any number of gamblers, rakes, mercenaries, courtesans, femme fatales, hoydens, and other scapegraces who don't care to play by society's starchy rules.  This month's ne'er-do-wells, though, take their roguishness a step further.  They don't just bend the rules; they break the law.

What is it about bad boys? (And wicked women too-- I wouldn't leave them out!)  As much as we condemn their actions, we have a strange fascination with outlaws.  For centuries, we've made celebrities of them-- turned them into legends, even.  (I'm looking at you, Robin Hood! Rebel against an oppressive king, yes, but a robber all the same.)  Granted, to the ancient Greeks a clever thief was a legitimate hero (just look at Odysseus), but we've romanticized our fair share of criminals since that time.
