This was another enjoyable read by Suzanne Enoch. Not sure why, but I found myself enjoying this installment much more than I did the first book in the series.
Camille is the runaway bride. A year ago she set foot at the church, and one look at her fiance was all she needed to turn around and run away as fast as she could. After her family and friends turned their backs on her she seeked employment at The Tantalous Club, and she's now content with the new life she created for herself.
Keating needs money and fast and so he accepts the deal his cousin makes with him. All he has to do is convince Camille to marry her fiance, and then he gets his money, solves his problems and everyone is happy. So he goes about his mission just as he planned until he sets eyes on Camille, then things change. Keating still needs the money, but meeting Camille is a total game changer for him.
This installment was a bit different to Suzanne's other books. Keating is not the wealthy hero I'm used to reading, he's not poor either. He's just a regular man who works hard for his money and doesn't have buckets of it to throw away. I actually thought that was a nice change, but I still like my wealthy heroes.
Overall this was a very fun, charming read. I enjoyed it a lot more than I did the first installment and I am really looking forward to book number three in the series. Blurb:
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…
