Taming an Impossible Rogue

Suzanne Enoch. St. Martin’s Paperbacks, $7.99 mass market (352p) ISBN 978-0-312-53452-3

Enoch brings back Diane Haybury and the ladies of the Tantalus Club in the delectable second Scandalous Brides Regency (after A Beginner’s Guide to Rakes). Camille Pryce is tired of being ignored by her lifelong fiancé, marquis Stephen Pollard. She flees her wedding, is immediately disowned, and finds employment at Diane’s infamous gentleman’s club. Stephen resents being made a laughingstock; barred from the club, he sends his cousin, Keating Blackwood, to get Camille back. Keating, who knows all about second chances after being embroiled in a scandal of his own, tempts Camille with promises that society would forgive everything if she returns to the fold and marries Stephen—but she’s even more drawn to Keating’s mocking commentary on the Regency world’s rigid expectations. Readers will savor this unusual tale of love and happiness found in the midst of scandal. Agent: Nancy Yost, Nancy Yost Literary Agency. (Apr.)
