Overview

Never a gentleman . . . until now.

Lord Bramwell Johns, the second son of a duke, is an unrepentant scoundrel. Now that his two closest friends are disgustingly ensconced in domestic bliss, Bram is feeling strangely restless. And not even relieving London's least deserving artistocrats of their ill-gotten jewels is enough—until the night he overhears an argument. It seems that Lady Rosamund Davies is about to be forced into marriage with a rogue even worse than himself.

Rose is well aware of Bram's scandalous reputation, so any reason for his sudden interest in her is suspect; more so since he's close friends with the man about to ruin her family! She has her own plan though, and Bram may be just what she requires—as long as she remembers that he is only looking out for himself. As long as she remembers that his kisses and caresses don't mean anything. As long as she can keep from wondering whether she can trust a scoundrel . . . with her heart.

In 1815 Lady Rosamund Davies has no choice except to agree to marry Lord Cosgrove even though she detests him. He is the only person who can save her family from ruin so she is selling herself in unholy matrimony. Notorious for gambling and womanizing, Lord Bramwell Johns overhears the sale of Rosamund as his alterego the thieving "Black Cat," who robs the rich. Feeling out of sorts since his best friends have recently married (see BEFORE THE SCANDAL and AFTER THE KISS), knowing her younger brother, and feeling sorry for her being sold as cattle, he decides to mentor Rose in the art of passion. However, both are unprepared for that first incredible kiss; now he wants to marry Rose, but to achieve his new objective he must prevent Cosgrove from doing so without causing a scandal. The third Notorious Gentlemen tale is an excellent Regency romantic suspense starring two fully developed protagonists and her fiancé who has his own agenda. In a battle of wits between Bram and Rosamund vs. Cosgrove, the jury is out as the latter has all the advantages starting with his being the intended. As always Suzanne Enoch provides a wonderful historical starring likable lead characters and a vile villain. Harriet Klausner

With his two best friends happily married, Bram takes to thievery - again (he stole for friend Sully in the first book) - to relieve his boredom with his life. He finds it thrilling to steal into houses in the dark of night and to secretly give his loot to charity. Tutored by the "best", the very evil Marquis of Cosgrove, Kingston Gore, Bram is an utter scoundrel and rake. But even Bram has limits, especially when he learns that King means to forgive a huge debt in exchange for marriage with the very proper Lady Rosamund Davies and has plans to debase and mistreat her just for the pleasure of it. Despite himself, Bram won't allow this to happen. And when he meets Rose and finds her interesting and appealing, he vows either to find a way to repay the money or to help Rose flee. Rosamund is leery of Bram, but likes him anyway, and besides she's desperate; King is a debauched sybarite, and no one seems to care about her well being except the incorrigible Bram. Bit by bit Bram redeems himself with his family and his friends and finds a selfless way to get Rosamund out of the marriage and a clever way to rid society of Gore.

I am a huge fan of Suzanne Enoch and eagerly await each of her new releases. This one was no exception. I had been waiting to read Bram's story since last summer when the first two books in this series were released. I was not disappointed. This is one that I will keep and re-read over and over again. The plot was well-paced and the characters were fun and likeable. I couldn't put it down - definitely a must read for any romance fan!

Loved the previous 2 books of the Notorious Gentleman Series. Have to say this one is my favorite. Bram may not be the ideal hero for a damsel in distress but he sure learns fast and proves even the worst scoundrel can redeem himself and be worthy of true love. This story will have you laughing out loud especially Bram's inner thoughts and cynicism. I recommend Suzanne's Lessons in Love Series, Stephanie Laurens Cynster Series and Elizabeth Boyle's Bachelor Chronicles. Anything Karen Hawkins, Samantha James, Mary Balogh. Love my Historicals.
