Product description


It's time to fall in love with Suzanne Enoch. --Lisa Kleypas

From the Back Cover

"One of my very favorite authors."--Julia Quinn


Emily Portsman has a secret, and three years ago she decided the best way to keep it would be to work at the Tantalus Club, a notorious gaming establishment for gentlemen. It's not the sort of work a beautiful, well-bred governess would ever consider--unless she's hiding from her past and a man who wants to destroy her present...


Nate Stokes, Earl of Westfall, is a supremely accomplished former spy more at home on London's seedy streets than in any glittery ballroom. His peers know him only as a bookish fellow who can find anything--or anyone. When the Marquis of Ebberling hires him to find a murderess, Nate's search leads him to the Tantalus Club and Emily Portsman. In a game where no one is who they seem and when every conversation is a deadly dance of trust and desire, the only thing Nate knows for sure is that once he gets Emily in his arms, he will never let go...

"Always an eagerly anticipated pleasure." --Christina Dodd

No very good. I feel in love with London's Perfect Scoundrel and have continued to read Suzanne Enoch's books since but lately they are just not interesting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enoch has a written a great one! 5 Feb. 2014
By joanstossel - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I have enjoyed all the books in the Tantalus Club series, but I loved this one! The club is a very posh gambling hall for men, where cultured young ladies of nice looks are the dealers, waitresses. etc. Most of the girls have some secret to hide or they are hiding away from someone. Emily Portsman is no exception, When she hears the Earl of Westfall mention a piece of jewelry that may have to do with her past, she decides to invite him to her room to find out what he knows. She figures that she can handle the mild-,mannered, sort of absent-minded lord. She was mistaken,for the mild manner is only part of an act that the former spy puts on. He gets what he wants - Emily in bed. He suspects that she may have changed her name and that she is really the young woman that he is trying to find - a woman accused of killing a nobleman's wife. Great story and fast moving- does not drag on like so many.

The author, that is. I usually enjoy Ms. Enoch's historical romances. This series got off to a great beginning, but I'm afraid it's gone downhill. The female staff of the Tantalus Club have to be beautiful, intelligent, well-spoken, and able to carry out the various duties of wait-staff, hostess, card-dealer, and running the other typical games in a regency men's gambling club. That said, they are also generally handicapped with a difficult background; for example, in the series entry before this one, the heroine was the illegitimate daughter of a duke and his wife's 'lady's maid.' AND this was general knowledge, so right off you know she's gonna have difficulties finding acceptance in her world. In The Handbook to Handling His Lordship---and by the way, could you come up with a title any more generic than that? I had to check back to see which book it was, since I couldn't recall it from the title; I read a LOT of romances and this one was read over a month ago---the female lead was hired under an assumed name, which was allowed because she could assure the club owner that her problematic backgrqund would not cause any harm to the club if it should become known.

The male lead had an unusual ability to find things. Okay, it actually seemed like a PSYCHIC ability, and since this isn't a paranormal romance that rang a false note for me. He has a young cousin who is enlisted to help out with the sleuthing. That's okay. But the earldom is not something to be handed off like the baton in a relay race.

But it did earn three stars from me because, despite the problems, I liked the characters, I am tickled pink with the premise of the Tantalus Club, and despite the weaknesses it is still an engaging story, as one expects from this author. I hope this isn't the last Scandalous Bride; I want to know the story of the hostess/greeter!

In `The Handbook to handling His Lordship' we return to `The Tantalus Club'. The Tantalus club is an exclusive gaming club where those serving the gentlemen within and dealing at the gaming tables are beautiful young women trying to escape their pasts.
In a previous book we meet Emily Portsman, a young woman who like all the other women, has come to find work and shelter. When we first meet Emily(Rules to catch a Devilish Duke and Taming an Impossible Rogue) she tries to hide herself away from the patrons of the club as much as possible, in this book though, it's her story, so she's very much front and centre.
Nathaniel `Nate' Stokes, the Earl of Westfall used to do undercover work during the war, now he is hired by the members of the ton to find `things' they've lost. It's a hobby he enjoys. His mission now is to discover Rachel Newbury, a woman whom the man he has been hired by insists is responsible for his wife's death.
On a visit to the club, Nate's instincts tell him that if Emily Portsman is not Rachel Newbury, she might just be the key to discovering who is.
Soon though, Nate realizes that there's more to this story than meets the eye and he finds himself on a totally different mission than the one he first started out on.
Mystery, suspense and passion keep you reading, though I found the resolution to the story a bit far-fetched, and near the end I just wanted to finally get to the ending, but all in all, a good read.
The characters were interesting and everyone was willing to rally round their friends.

1.0 out of 5 stars Grrrrr! This author writes awful endings! 2 Feb. 2014
By Cath Curry - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Suzanne Enoch is a talented writer. I love her books until I get to the end. You think you're getting a standard romance: couple meets, have problems, get together and live happily ever after. Not in Suzanne's books. Her books always end with the heroine accepting the hero's proposal. There is no happily ever after. I've bought several of her books and they all had the same crappy ending.

"Will you marry me?" "Yes!" The end.

Hey, Suzanne, that is not how to write a satisfying ending.

I like these stories about the so called "fallen" in regency time, the tantalus girls are so witty, and make great character's. Looking forward to the next one, my only complaint is the price.. so much more expensive than most e-books.:)
