Publisher Comments:

“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. Its not the sort of work a beautiful, well-bred governess would ever consider—unless shes 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 Londons 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, Nates 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

  

Review:

"The ladies of the Tantalus Club (Rules to Catch a Devilish Duke) are back in this forgettable Regency. Emily Portsman, one of the club's managers, has a secret: she's in hiding after witnessing a murder, having changed her name, dyed her hair, and not left the club's premises for two years. When Nathaniel Stokes, the Earl of Westfall, shows up at the club asking questions, Emily immediately suspects he is on her trail. Nate, of course, has no idea that Emily is the woman he seeks. Nate and Emily fall into a passionate affair and spar in and out of bed as they try to find out what the other knows. The plot is dragged down by heavy-handed emphasis on Nate's strong sense of fair play and their different class backgrounds (Emily is a commoner). However, fans will enjoy seeing past characters again as they cheer Nate and Emily all the way to their dramatic happy ending. (Apr.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

About the Author

A native and current resident of Southern California, Suzanne Enoch loves movies almost as much as she loves books, with a special place in her heart for anything Star Wars. She has written more than thirty Regency novels and historical romances, which are regularly found on the New York Times bestseller list. When she is not busily working on her next book, Suzanne likes to contemplate interesting phenomena, like how the three guppies in her aquarium became 161 guppies in five months.
