I just gobbled up SE's latest trilogy and thoroughly enjoyed all three books. I loved the focus on the characters and relationships (without a lot of extraneous stuff), the background setup and the author's wit of course.

Did anyone else read these books? What did you think? Favorite couple?

ETA: The books are A Beginner's Guide To Rakes, Taming an Impossible Rogue and Rules to Catch a Devilish Duke. Sorry I didn't give the titles before.

I loved all three books, but my favorite was the first, A Beginner's Guide to Rakes, because I learned so many interesting details about setting up and running a gambling hell! The couples in each book were likeable, but I guess that Oliver and Diane from BGTR are my favorites because they had a liaison in the past and we're left to guess about what happened. All of the heroines in the series have a scandal they're trying to get away from, that's what makes it fun.

Is there any word on whether SE will do more books in her Rick/Samantha contemporary series? I really enjoyed that couple and was disappointed it stopped at 5 books Sad

Suzanne changed publishers from Avon to St Martin's starting with this latest trilogy, so I wasn't sure what all was included in her contracts. Then I found this on her web site:

Will there be another Sam and Rick book?

I donít know. I havenít been offered another contract with a publisher to write them, so for the moment, no, there wonít be another one. However, with the advent of ebooks and authors putting out original content, thereís a possibility that Iíll have time to write one and put it up in electronic format on my own. That depends on my current writing schedule, but I would LOVE to write another one.


I also found this:

What happened to book #2 in the Sam and Rick series, PLAYING WITH FIRE?

As often happens in the publishing world, the title of that book was changed after I mentioned it in the Author's Notes of FLIRTING WITH DANGER. The correct title of book #2 is DON'T LOOK DOWN. There is no PLAYING WITH FIRE.

I liked the first and second much better than the third, which I thought sort of wandered around in the center and got far too television-y in the ending. Were I forced to choose between the first two, the Beginner's Guide would win, I think. Actually, I prefer much of Enoch's backlist to her more recent stuff.

Thanks! That's encouraging. I hope she does find time to write another book. I'm dying to see how Rick and Sam handle marriage Smile

The only book I've read from this author was Lady Gallant. I'd like to check out more. Thanks for posting.

I don't think Suzanne Enoch wrote a book with a title of Lady Gallant. Maybe another Suzanne did or am I missing a book somewhere?

If you want to try a current book, looks like A Beginner's Guide To Rakes might be a good place to start. Or for an older historical book, many liked London's Perfect Scoundrel (Lessons in Love, Book 2) and Always a Scoundrel: The Notorious Gentlemen. She did a popular contemp series too starting with Flirting With Danger.

That was Suzanne Robinson. I don't think she's writing romance anymore.

Enoch did write a book called "Lady Rogue," (1997) which is a good read.
