Taming an Impossible Rogue
One year ago, Lady Camille Pryce left her haughty fiancé at the altar-for good reason. Not only was the marriage arranged before she could even walk, her betrothed was too smug to exert himself to meet her! Now, disowned, with no husband or family to support her, she's left with one option: go to work in the notorious Tantalus Club...
A gentleman's gaming house run by a woman, the Tantalus is no place for a proper lady; so, to save face, her jilted fiancé must retrieve her. But banned from the club, he's forced to employ his ne'er-do-well cousin instead. A handsome, experienced rogue, Keating Blackwood is the perfect man to lure Camille away. But the moment they meet, Keating instead wants to save her...for himself. Impossible? Perhaps. But if Camille can make the ultimate player lay his cards on the table-and risk his heart-all bets are off...
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 fianc , 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.
