Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In an effort to frighten his fiance's parents into allowing an early wedding, Simon Talbott convinces his devilish rakehell cousin, James Faring, the Marquis of Abbonley, to feign an interest in his fiance, Lady Angelique Graham. The plan, however, works too well, and it takes a bit of doing before all the lovers in the game are properly aligned. Traditional, lighthearted, and predictable, this country Regency features several standards of the subgenre, including an engaging, hoydenish heroine, a reformed rake hero, a heroic rescue, and an aborted trip to Gretna Green. The dialog and relationship between the hero and heroine work, as do some of the secondary characters, including a great lummox of a dog. Enoch is also the author of The Black Duke's Prize (Avon, 1995).

Born and raised in Southern California, Suzanne lives a few scant miles from Disneyland with her collection of Star Wars action figures and a Cairn terrier named Katie (after the heroine of her first Regency).

A gem of a story. Funny, surprising & enjoyable read full of characters to love and hate. You'll root for the hero and heroine.

I have never read anything by this author. I was pleasantly surprised. This book had a wonderful storyline. I finished the book in a day. It had no sex scene which is a plus for teens.

I enjoyed the story of Angel and James. Although the story was brief - coming in at less than 200 pages - I thought Ms. Enoch perfectly captured their relationship. I admit the subplot with Angel's fiance and best friend falling in love seemed a tad rushed and uber convienient, I bought it hook, line, and sinker. I also enjoyed the wit and biting exchanges that flew between Angel and James. My one complaint is a lack of an epilogue to show where this couple ended up. Overall, a quick and enjoyable romp.

Overall, this is a pretty cute story. It's a short and pretty enjoyable, but I was glad it didn't cost much. I liked the characters but there seemed to be an underlying weakness that didn't quite fit. I was expecting a little more defiance from the lead characters, and a lot more passion. There wasn't a single sex scene and very little kissing. While sex scenes aren't mandatory in a romance novel, they are expected, to a degree. I have to agree with another reviewer that this felt more appropriate for teenage readers. I would probably recommend this book to someone looking for a light read, along with a warning it might not meet expectations. Suzanne Enoch is still one of my preferred readers, but I'm hoping to come across more of her novels that have a hint more scandalous behavior. A little too innocent for my tastes but worth the read.
