    A lifelong lover of books, Suzanne Enoch has been writing them since she learned to read. She is the author of two well-received Avon Regencies, The Black Duke's Prize and Angel's Devil, and five Avon Romances: Lady Rogue, Stolen Kisses, By Love Undone, Taming Rafe and Reforming a Rake. Born and raised in Southern California, Suzanne lives a few scant miles from Disneyland with her collection of Star Wars action figures and a Cairn terrier named Katie (after the heroine of her first Regency). She's still looking for her own hero, and hopes he will be handsome, titled, and just a little wicked.…


    A Matter of Scandal
    School for ScandalMiss Emma Grenville, who is no silly debutante, has had her fill of thick-headed noblemen who believe women exist solely to satisfy men. And her arrogant new landlord, the Duke of Wycliffe, is the worst of the lot! The too attractive cad wants to triple the rent on Emma's finishing school for young ladies to help get his uncle's estate out of dept. Well, Greydon Brakenridge clearly needs educating -- about women. And Emma's just the one to enlighten him!

    The sinfully handsome duke has never met a woman he couldn't outwit and seduce. And now that he's tricked Emma into a wager, he has the stubborn headmistress right where her wants her -- and hopefully, soon in his bed. But the confirmed bachelor underestimates the intelligent and surprisingly sensual Miss Grenville. For she may be leading Greydon to a place neither dreamed they'd ever go -- to the altar.

    England's Perfect Hero
    Although the popularity of the historical romance may be waning, writers like Enoch give readers plenty of reasons to return to the genre. With Enoch's latest (after London's Perfect Scoundrel), which ties up her Lessons in Love series, she delves beneath the superficialities of glittering balls and perfectly tied cravats to focus on the wounds borne by Robert Carroway, a supposed hero of Waterloo but in reality a former prisoner of war who can barely steel himself to converse with his family, much less waltz with debutantes. But a chance encounter with Lucinda Barrett, easy conversationalist as well as regular waltzer, leads him to hope that he could have a normal life. Lucinda, who has her sights set on a duke's fourth son, is surprised when Robert offers to help her gain him, and even more surprised when her encounters with Robert grow more important than the success of her campaign. But her beloved father's dismissal of Robert as "damaged goods," followed by implications that Robert may be a traitor, could stunt his recovery as well as their relationship—unless Lucinda listens to her heart and trusts him. Lucinda's refusal to treat Robert as less than a whole man and Robert's sharp sense of humor give this charming tale depth, and Enoch balances it well with a hearty dose of screwball fun.

    Stolen Kisses
    Jack Faraday, the Marquis of Dansbury, has no interest in being respectable. Nor is he interested in proper ladies pursuing marriage--until he looks across a room and into the emerald eyes of Miss Lilith Benton. When she publicly snubs him, Jack is furious and vows to exact revenge by seducing the lady known as the Ice Queen.

    Lilith is aghast to learn that the man whose dark eyes stirred such excitement in her is the notorious Marquis of Dansbury. She's intent only on restoring her family's good name and making a respectable marriage; being pursued by a scandalous rake is not in her plans. Unfortunately, her heart won't listen to her good sense.

    Stolen kisses and midnight escapades endanger both Lilith's reputation and Jack's heart. When they are forced to conspire to clear their names after a duke's mysterious death, hot desire soon replaces innocent kisses.
