Description from amazon.com:
Suzanne Enoch delights fans once again with this enchanting tale of a young lady determined to have an adventure and the white knight who charges to her rescue.
After yet another beau was chased away by her three over-protective brothers, Lady Eleanor Griffin decides she’s had enough. If she is to become a boring society wife, then she’s going to have some fun first. But when her adventure turns into more than what she bargained for, she is grateful for her knight in shining armour who rescued her from what was sure to become a scandalous situation.
How different is this regency romance story from so many others? Actually, the plot is similar to many. You know, the roguish rake is snared by his friend the Duke’s upstart sister. The thing that makes this historical rate a 5 when others rate only a 3 or maybe a 4, is that this one has been penned by a consummate storyteller. Enoch has created a rake that is truly rakish and the heroine is really rather spoiled and in need of someone taking her in hand. No matter how much we may be concerned that this pairing will not work out, we root for them to fall in love. We see her making mistakes and we hope that one of those mistakes is not our rakish hero. The bad guys are dastardly and keep cropping up. The sensuality is palpable, sexy and oh, so satisfying. There are intros to characters that complete this series and I look forward to reading the next book. BTW… there is a twist that is really delish in this one.
