Sophia White was born into the world as an illegitimate daughter of a duke, so her tarnished reputation precedes her. Living her entire life under that stigma has caused her to find refuge at the Tantalus Club, an establishment for gentlemen. Yet Sophia is able to make friends and find people to call her family there. Unfortunately, society still deems her unworthy and to save her soul, a vicar has volunteered to marry her. Horrified yet optimistic, Sophia is determined to make the last few weeks of her freedom count before she is forced to marry someone she does not care for.

When she is invited to spend the holidays at the Duke of Greaves’ estate, Sophia is thrilled at the prospects of seeing her friend Camille Blackwood again. However, her trip to Adam Baswich’s estate soon turns into an embarrassing accident. The bridge they travel on collapses, causing Sophia and the coach she is in to submerge into the freezing, icy water. Adam is there to save her, but it is in that time that Sophia notices much more than Adam’s warm embrace. She realizes her time with him alone may lead to trouble.

Adam and Sophia are absolutely amazing together. Despite the fact that Sophia is dreading the coming weeks of her life, there is this spark in it that makes present company smile. She has such a zest for life and each page that Enoch writes, you see it more and more. Adam is a hard man, but while in the presence of Sophia, he seems enlightened, teasing. Enoch weaves together a spectacular love story within the first half of the book. It will have readers melting with its romantic elements. And yet, the latter half of the book will have readers rooting for the hero and heroine, hoping that true love has what it takes to prevail.

Enoch really captured my heart with this book and transported me into the Duke of Greaves estate. When the book was finished and I wanted more, I found that Enoch managed to evoke a myriad of emotions from me. Suzanne Enoch is easily becoming one of my new auto-buy authors!

Readers will be thrilled to note that Keating Blackwood and Camille are very much present in this book. Enoch writes such memorable characters that I couldn’t help but let out an excited squeal whenever she mentions Blackwood. He certainly brings forth a dark menacing aura to the book, yet the things he does and says are comical and makes me love him more.

Humor, heat and heart – Suzanne Enoch has it all in RULES TO CATCH A DEVILISH DUKE! Fit for the holidays, this red hot read is sure to keep you warm through the winter months!

About Suzanne Enoch

Suzanne is known for her humorous characters, sexy bad boys, and whip-sharp, witty dialogue. She currently resides in Placentia, California with several hundred guppies and various other tropical fish, and handful of very loud, spinach-loving finches. And her collection of action figures and statues from “Star Wars”, “Lord of the Rings”, “X-Men”, and “Pirates of the Caribbean”. Everybody needs some inspiration, after all.

I’m a 26 year old obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I’m also a reviewer for FreshFiction.com. Over there, I’m also a columnist. I have a column called Into the Night that discusses the latest and greatest news in the Paranormal Romance and Urban Fantasy genre. I also work as a virtual assistant for authors.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, to New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and fashion or dreaming about boys and beaches. My love for all things David Gandy is well documented on the Internet and we’ll be getting married shortly. I’ll be sure to send you an invite to the wedding! ;P Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
