A Beginner's Guide to Rakes is a delightful jocular second chance at love Regency romance

Lord Frederick Benchley gambled away a fortune. His creditors forced him and his Diane to flee London. After rustication for a few years, Frederick dies. Obsessed with never being impoverished again, the widow returns to London seeking the assistance of a former lover Oliver Warren the Marquis. Her plan is to convert her mansion into an exclusive gentleman's gaming club.

After announcing her plan to a stunned aristocracy, Lady Diane blackmails the reluctant marquis into cooperating with her venture. He, on the other hand, believes he owes her for what he did to her. However, although she uses a secret to compel him to helping her, Oliver has a secret agenda to prove his love of his cherished bodacious partner.

A Beginner's Guide to Rakes is a delightful jocular second chance at love Regency romance starring two likable protagonists. Readers will admire the courageous heroine as she boldly goes where no Lady has gone before her and adore the lead male who matches her every step of the way. As the pair fuss and fight, they affirm what each knew deep in their heart that they loved one another. Suzanne Enoch provides a charming historical.

I love Suzanne Enoch - but not loving this book - it is like pulling teeth to get through - totally don't like the heroine. I actually don't even think I finish the thing - have been trying to for the past few weeks and am thinking it is time to give up and move onto another book.

    Fun Escape!

    Another great escape from Suzanne Enoch! Story drew me in from the very first page and kept me interested 'til the very last. The heroine is well drawn and keeps her man guessing...an interesting switch up for period novels. Looking forward to the next in the series!
