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…

High Lar Ious

Setting / Time / Genre: Regency, London

Length: 352 glorious pages of banter and sarcasm and wit

Series: Yes.

Sexy times: Three, I believe. All charming. Not terribly descriptive. The word "cock" is used frequently. And when I say charming, I mean charming: "A she bounced up and down on him enthusiastically, he lost the power of speech." and "May I touch you there?...Please do, not jabbing or yanking though." Charming.

Plan on reading more by the author: Oh hell yes.

Posted on Under the Covers

Fans of both Lisa Kleypas and Julia Quinn should really take a look at Suzanne Enoch’s books. As a fan of both Kleypas and Quinn, it’s hard to find another author that grabs my attention as they do. However, upon picking up TAMING AN IMPOSIBLE ROGUE, I knew right away that Enoch would become an author I would be interested in reading more of.

The opening paragraph alone captured my attention and it was then that I realized that I was missing out big time.

Taming an Impossible Rogue is laugh out loud funny and was a five star read up until the very end when the book just well, ends. I think there needed to be an extra 10 or 15 pages in there or an epilogue...something!

I did this as a BR with Ally and boy did we have fun. There are countless one line zingers and hilarious situations in this book. We had a three chapter a night limit on the BR and we both had trouble sticking to it because this book was so funny it was hard to put down.

This is the second book of the Scandalous Brides series. This is fine to be read as a standalone. The characters from the previous book are in it briefly, but nothing you would need to know the background story.

Camille is our heroine and I really enjoyed her. She' just so likable. She was funny, sweet, just a tad sassy but not overwhelming. She was raised in a wealthy home and has been betrothed pretty much since birth. Waiting her whole life, her fiance never even bothers to say hi to her, let

Finally finished this book! Omg, it felt like forever!

This wasn't the rating I thought I would be giving this book based on all those positive reviews. Really, there are only positive reviews! Maybe one or two readers gave it less than 3 stars. So why didn't I like it?
It just didn't work out for me. I got bored with the story, there's an overuse of the word CHIT! Omg, the hero calls every female a chit! It was so annoying!

This suddenly became a DNF. I really enjoy Enoch's writing, but this one felt like a historical Facebook novel. The characters are well written, but they lack direction in their lives in general. The secondary characters are very supportive, but again, I was unsure of their underlying motives--which may well be a device for the next book in the series, but since I didn't finish it, I don't know. The part that got me that made this a DNF was that the main character was late to work! For a woman t ...more

A Must Read!!!!!!!! ❤️

Awwwww I LOVED this book!!!!!!! So full of wit,humour, tension, the meaning of sacrificing and true love!!!!!!!!
To see beyond Society's exploits within the strict rules that governed the Victorian era especially with the nobility!! Sooooo mad at her parents so uncaring & too disown based off of propriety structure their 'beloved' eldest daughter all because she has a spine and stood up against her parents and society's arranged marriage!!!!

If you're in the mood for something brainy, this is not the book to pick up. But, if you're looking to sail away for a bit into a land of outlandish rogues and slightly fallen women, then dig in. This was a fun, quick read that I found myself not being able to put down. If this book were a food for me, it would be a chocolate truffle--I would know that it was a little bit naughty, but also rather delicious. ...more

4.5 stars This was an absolutely fun read! Keaton Blackwood had a reputation for inebriation, women and brawling and one time six years ago all doing all three at once, got him kicked out of society. Or at least he shuffled himself off to the country in penance. Therefore he is surprised when his cousin comes to make him an offer he can't refuse. Get the cousins bride back, whom had ran away a year ago and a sum of money would be his. Piece of cake!

I wish I could give this book more than 5 stars! I just loved it!

While I thought the first book in the series was good, but not great, Taming an Impossible Rogue (Scandalous Brides #2) was fantastic!

Camille Pryce was thrown into a life of scandal when she fled the alter from an arranged marriage with an arrogant and cold fiance she'd never spoken with. Camille found her way to the Tantalus Club for employment after her parents kicked her out and her friends all turned their backs on her. The Ta

With this book, I have finally discovered Enoch's secret to success: it's apoplexy. Stay with me on this one. In her last book "A Beginner's Guide to Rakes" I wrote that while she managed to avoid the word "apoplexy" (her overusage of the word is an on-going joke) the book had an odd contemporary feel and felt underdeveloped in parts. Now, with "Taming an Impossible Rogue," apoplexy is BACK! She uses it four times! This rigorous scientific study has me concluding that she uses this word all the ...more

I’m really enjoyed Suzanne Enoch and the Scandalous Brides series. I’m reading them a little out of order (I read the first, then the third, then the second) so some of the reoccurring characters are a little mixed up for me. I’m really liking Ms. Enoch’s use of humor in a historical that sometimes can get lost in other stories. She can not only provide the connection between her heroine and hero and sometimes the tears, but she makes me laugh on the journey with them. In book two in the series, ...more

this was such a pleasant surprise! im not new to ms enoch's works and i really enjoy her books. but i had no idea id like this one so much. ive heard keating's name around book blogs snd such much like his character here. but personally ive had one too many rogues sometimes they all seem the same. BUT no keating was definitely something else. this story reminded me a bit of p&p with some concepts which made me like it more.

keating was a fiend, blackguard in true sense. but he isnt all that bad.

I liked this one slightly better than the first in the series, but it was still a bit hard to stomach. The H and h are so resigned to their respective fates and it didn't exactly lend a warm and fuzzy feeling to their romance. ...more

This was an interweaving story. It had action in it which kept me reading. It wasn’t the typical I met a girl and then fell in love with her story.

Blackwood is a rogue and he is on a job to get his cousin’s runaway bride to come back to the alter. And he needs the money for his son so he agrees. Yet, the runaway bride is working in a gentlemen club which is disgraceful for her society background. But Blackwood becomes more involved than he thought with her and after hearing her side of why she

"Taming an Impossible Rogue: Scandalous Brides Series" by Suzanne Enoch
narrator: Anne Flosnik audio book downloaded from my State Library.

A fun regency romance... with some new twists and turns. a good read. & fun entertainment.
Keating and Camille had an entertaining romantic chemistry, although character wise I liked Keating better. Camille came across as a bit wishy washy and bland Keating was definitely the more colourful and entertaining character.

I did not care for either main character. The story was original. Felt like the romance scenes were a bit lackluster. I am interested in reading the 3rd book because it follows the two characters in this book that I did like.
