A Lady's Guide to Improper Behavior (Adventurers' Club #2)
A lady should always make polite conversation . . .
Theresa Weller understands the rules of decorum, and is appalled when Colonel Bartholomew James disrupts a perfectly civilized dinner. This rude, insensitive man is the complete opposite of everything a gentleman should be--but with one searing kiss, Tess can think of no one else.
A lady should never lose her te...more
Tolly is a man recently back from India damaged and traumatized, both physically and mentally. A native renegade group called the Thugee pretended to befriend Tolly's group. It ends in tragedy when Tolly's group and all fifteen men are ambushed, murdered, and thrown down a well. Tolly, left for dead is the only survivor and returns to Eng...more
1)Strongly berate someone at dinner while you're a guest in his brother's house
2) Tell a disabled man that he must ask you to dance
3) Kiss the disabled man on the stairs of his house after you've grabbed his cane & caused him to stumble
4) Enter a bachelor's bedroom while said bachelor is in his bed
I'm a sucker for stories about wounded and emotionally tortured heroes, so I was strongly disposed to like Bartholomew. I initially thou...more
I just love a brooding hero that scowls and has a temper, and this book's hero is just that! He is an injured war hero who has all but given up on life until he meets the heroine of the story who gives him the will to fight for his life! She sparks his temper and ignites his passions. He makes her want to do all sorts of things a proper lady shouldn't be doing.
I really enjoyed reading about their story; it was sweet and touching and I can't wait...more
When these two meet the sparks immediately began to fly, but they are also as mismatched as they come....more

I loved both of the characters and how Suzanne Enoch developed their relationship through the book. It didn't take long for both characters...more
A lot of the characters muttered 'Mmm-hmm' at one time or other and I found it very distracting.
I also thought the Thuggee stuff slowed the pace of the book down. I didn't find it all that compelling nor interesting especially when Tolly brought in all these ot...more
It's not great or amazing... No No No IT'S BEYOND that it touched me so very deeply in a way that never happened before I don't know how to describe it!!!!
"Tolly" part of me will always belong to you and "Tess" dear, sweet and strong Tess I really really wish I could at least meet you.
I don't want to put spoilers in my review so, I'm ont saying more then I'm totally in love with this book a...more
It took a while for me to warm up to Tessa- a beautiful blond who always does the proper thing so much so that she anonymously authored a book about etiquette. Her rules have never failed her since a drastic life changing event when she was a child caused her...more
Rarely has a hero ever been so very, very appealing before. If you read historicals for the romance, then this will definitely get you.
It takes a little time to like the heroine, but puh! to her. I didn't read this book for Tess. I read it for Colonel Bartholomew James.
So, read it. That's all.
nota bene: how can an author who wrote this book, write the utter pile of **** that is book 1 and 3 of this series? Really, how? I'm baffled.
WOW! I really loved this book.
5 Cool Things About This Book...
That is how I feel about the lovely Hero Colonel Bartholomew James. What a freaking catch. What i liked about him was his constant vulnerability. Its rare in historical romance that the hero is truely vulnerable. The only time he is vulnerable is when the heroine is in danger...or he has been such a twat that she is ready to leave his jerk ass. However, Bartholomew, or Tolly as th...more
Tess and Tolly meet each other at Tollys brothers home (his wife is Tess' cousin) where he is trying to heal his bad knee that he received as a result of a horrible at...more
good: •the valet, Lackaby or something. He's so funny!
•Tolly's story in India is... really awful. I actually gasped. Which doesn't happen often, and
usually not because something is horrific.
•the characters - each one of them! I loved the main characters, but I was really surprised by
Sommerset and Montrose. Especially Montrose....more
But their first interactions disru...more

One of my favorite parts is about Tess realizing that the way she's living isn't working for her. Just the last 2 sentences of the passage begin her transf...more
The characters were okay, but at times just that ... And at times I didn't like the war backround story, I found it a bit tedious. But the rest was really nice, and I'm still totally "digging" Suzanne's writing style ;)
