Description from amazon.com:

One year ago, Lady Camille Pryce left her haughty fiancé at the altar—for good reason. Not only was the marriage arranged before she could even walk, her betrothed was too smug to exert himself to meet her! Now, disowned, with no husband or family to support her, she’s left with one option: go to work in the notorious Tantalus Club…

A gentleman’s gaming house run by a woman, the Tantalus is no place for a proper lady; so, to save face, her jilted fiancé must retrieve her. But banned from the club, he’s forced to employ his ne’er-do-well cousin instead. A handsome, experienced rogue, Keating Blackwood is the perfect man to lure Camille away. But the moment they meet, Keating instead wants to save her…for himself. Impossible? Perhaps. But if Camille can make the ultimate player lay his cards on the table—and risk his heart—all bets are off…

**

I do enjoy Suzanne Enoch’s romantic tales.  This one is no exception.  She is a master at characterization; we can feel the reality of each of her characters.  The bad guy in this novel is not so much “bad” as someone to be pitied. The hero is definitely rogue-ish but trying his best to reform.  The heroine is to be applauded by our 21st century standards as the original free thinking woman, at least until she falls for our hero and agrees to sacrifice herself on the alter of love.  The hook in this romance that kept me reading into the wee hours was how was Enoch going to get the Hero and Heroine together for that Happily Ever After that we all crave?  It is safe to day that it is accomplished and worth the lack of sleep to find out.  Now I am off to read about secondary character Adam, I fell in love with him in this book.  I guess I could say that I highly recommend this delightful novel.

  1. I just read the first book of the series A Beginner’s Guide to Rakes and absolutely loved it. Reading your summary I can’t wait to get into Camille and Keatings story.
