All of Enoch’s quality trademarks are present: Flirty, fun dialogue, an endearing heroine and a hero that charms your pants off! ~ Under the Covers
Emily Portsman is keeping a secret close to her heart. In order to keep that secret hidden, she works at the Tantalus Club, which is a gaming hell for gentlemen. Our hero, Nate Strokes, Earl of Westfall, is a former spy and is ridiculously good at recovering anything. So when he is approached by the Marquis of Ebberling to locate a murderess after three years of a cold trail, Nate finds himself intrigued by the concept and challenge. For a large sum, he tries to track down this murderer and finds himself in the Tantalus Club where he meets Emily.
To be honest, THE HANDBOOK TO HANDLING HIS LORDSHIP took awhile to warm up to. Nate is an interesting hero, but I thought some of his interactions with others seemed to fall a little flat. I’m used to Enoch’s writing to be upbeat and a little flirty, so when I didn’t immediately get that, I instantly knew I wanted something more. However, the book doesn’t stay that way. As soon as Nate sets his eyes of Emily, I knew that something was brewing and Enoch worked with it until it boiled to a fevering point.
The other thing I wished for was an epilogue or something because things wrapped up a little too quickly for my liking. I know Enoch doesn’t normally indulge in epilogues but I think one would have been great to really cement and cap off the romance and lead into a happily-ever-after. So for me, the two ends – the beginning and the ending – just felt a little flat for me, though the rest of the book is very much enjoyable.
