OMG — a better hero than Bit? Is that possible?
Always A Scoundrel The Notorious Gentlemen
Suzanne Enoch is quite an original. Fiz — I liked Sully, too, and loved Bit, of course. But Bram! And according to Amazon, her next book is The Care and Taming of a Rogue and will be out in November…no other info on it, though. Vincent, of course.
A Duke but No Gentleman (Masters of Seduction, Book 1)
Tabitha — I agree with Linda on authors who are similar. You should try Suzie E!
And this is a good series to start with. Conveniently, a good bit of her backlist has been reprinted recently, too. Whoo hoo, Lisa Kleypas and Julia Quinn are two of my favorite authors. Thank you, Linda and C2! Should I try this book or one of her earlier works first?

- Book Review: Always a Scoundrel by Suzanne Enoch.
Tabitha — you could start with this book but I recommend starting with the first book in this series, After the Kiss, and reading all three in order. Great review, I read the first two, need to get this one soon as I can. C2, thanks! That last line of the review is very intriguing. Oh Liv! You should try her — and this series is a good one to start with. As far as her disposal of the villain a very nasty bit of evilness goes — heh.
Creative comeuppance, says me.

Lori on April 29, at am. I enjoyed the first two in this series, and this one is on my TBR. Thanks for the review! Tabitha on April 29, at am.

She has her own plan though, and Bram may be just what she requires—as long as she remembers that he is only looking out for himself. As long as she can keep from wondering whether she can trust a scoundrel. A few days ago I wrote a review in which I say that one of my favourite tropes in romance is a Beauty and the Beast story.
One of the trio known as the Notorious Gentlemen, newest creation of Suzanne Enoch. Out of the three rascals friends he was the one that was truly a rake, had truly a reproachable life and a dark past. I am pleased to say that Always a Scoundrel did not disappoint: it met my expectations brilliantly. So, you have Bram ,or Lord Bramwell Lowry Johns, the second son of the Duke of Levonzy, going about his daily life , bored out of his mind.
Notorious Gentlemen Series in Order - Suzanne Enoch - FictionDB
All of this as a way to prove to his father that he is indeed, the disgrace the Duke thought him to be when he was merely The proverbial coin drops when he becomes acquainted with one Rosamund Davies, a young woman who has just been sold, literally to Cosgrove: her brother has a huge gambling debt and Cosgrove offers to forget about it if she marries him. Her father agrees rather easily and rapidly and Rose is the one to be sacrificed for the good of the family. No one thinks about what she wants, no one ever considers to make the brother pay for his own mistakes.
Rosamund is aware of this, she is critical of her own family but she is also prepared to do her duty. It could have been so easy to make Rosamund, a martyr but she is written far too well. Instead, she is a strong character, motivated by honour and an attachment to a family that does not deserve her sacrifice whilst being aware of it, which makes it all the more poignant. His confusion leads him to investigate further and to ascertain that King is playing a game with Rose, who sees as a toy he wishes to break in the worst manner possible.
And that, my friends is the moment I LOVE in Reformed Rake stories: the moment when the rake looks back at his life, realises he no longer wants to be that man and that he wants to change for that heroine. The moment that is full of a hurt that leaps from the page. That is also the moment that makes or break a Reformed Rake story: as this only happens because of the heroine and that female character needs to be well-written, interesting and to have that ONE thing that will make the reader believe that this rake, this man would change his life because of this woman.
And in Always a Scoundrel this one thing is: reflection. What makes him follow her, fall for her in a way that he needs to protect and love her is that realisation that she is the better person by how she REACTED to the situation created by her family. They are the underdogs, unwanted by their families, sharing similar backgrounds and bonding because of them. Of course, it also helps that Bram is hot and has the hots for plain Rose. Ultimately, it takes a great woman to reform a real rake.
See a Problem?
It cannot be just about anyone, Bram is aware of this and muses to himself:. Bram shook himself. He made it a point to be serious as little as possible, and neither did he want to argue with two newly married men about the merits of being leg-shackled.
