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

"One of my very favorite authors."--Julia Quinn
WHAT COULD BE MORE TEMPTING
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...
THAN SURRENDERING TO LOVE?
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

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 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.
"Will you marry me?" "Yes!" The end.
Hey, Suzanne, that is not how to write a satisfying ending.
