About the Author
A lifelong lover of books, Suzanne Enoch has been writing them since she learned to read. She is the author of two well-received Avon Regencies, The Black Duke's Prize and Angel's Devil, and five Avon Romances: Lady Rogue, Stolen Kisses, By Love Undone, Taming Rafe and Reforming a Rake. 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). She's still looking for her own hero, and hopes he will be handsome, titled, and just a little wicked. Meanwhile, she's currently at work inventing him in her next historical romance.

Enter, Simon's scandalous rake of a cousin the disreputable Lord James Faring who is just home from the continent after a five year absence. He is recovering from wounds received in a war and wounds to his heart, but he is at once entranced with the little 'hoyden' Angelique from the moment they bumped into one another on the London docks.
After she finds out who he is - a plot is hatched to have James make overtures to her in front of her parents so that the parents would be happy to set an earlier date to save her from the clutches of 'the Devil'. As, things will get on, it doesn't take long for the game playing to become serious and Angelique finds out who she truly does love!
A darling story....very hard to come by but well worth the effort. You'll just love all the secondary characters, particulary Angeliques twin siblings - Henry and Helen, and the mastiff Brutus!
Angelique, strong willed and impatient, was denied by her parents the speedy wedding she desperately wanted with her beloved Simon. So she hatches a plan, with the assistance of Simon's cousin ~aka~ The Devil. The Devil relunctanly agrees to pursue Angel in hopes of convincing her parents that a speedy wedding to Simon is the only safe option!
Will this harmless charade backfire on the Devil or the Angel?
I suppose for its time it was okay. I'm about a decade too late to really enjoy it.
I tell you what worked for me, and what didn't.
The characters worked - beautifully. The hero was flawed but eminently likeable. The heroine was true to type as a young girl eager to wed the man of her daydreams, though the daydreams had as much substance as a fop's limp handshake (not a criticism by the way. Just a fact of life with teenaged girls, even today :))
The plot worked - an absolute treat! I liked the internal conflict the hero faced - he was the one at the center of the triangle, with both himself and his cousin wanting the heroine.
The pacing - spot on.
The length - appropriate. This was a good solid read that won't leave you feeling cheated.
Secondary characters were well drawn as well.
I particularly liked the hero. Of late, I seem to be coming across a lot of heroes who would be had up on sexual harassment charges if they were living in our time - and that isn't conducive to romance in my book (pardon the pun). But Devil was real and he was honourable.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves regency romances. It's got sugar, it's got spice, and it's got the magic that makes a romance leave you sighing at the end.
