    About "Suzanne Enoch"

    1. Suzanne Enoch

      Suzanne was born in Southern California sometime in the latter half of the 20th century In the way that some people are born knowing they want to be astronauts or cellists, Suzanne always knew she wanted to be a writer Early dreams of becoming a zoologist and writing true stories about her adventures in Africa were crushed, however, after she viewed a television special about the world s most poisonous snakes she did NOT want to write about how she d been bitten and lost a limb to a cobra Thankfully at the same time the movie Star Wars premiered, and she realized that she could make up adventures and write about them, and not be eaten by deadly predators while doing research.She dabbled in romantic fantasy writing for a year or two after graduating with a degree in English from the University of California, Irvine, until her affection for traditional Regency romances led her to write one for fun After several encouraging rejections from publishers, she snared the interest of the world s best and most patient literary agent, who advised her to revise the manuscript This ultimately led to the publication of her first book, The Black Duke s Prize, from Avon Books in the Spring of 1995 A second Regency, Angel s Devil, followed that Fall.When Avon folded its traditional Regency line, Suzanne was encouraged to try her hand at historical romance As she remained keenly interested in England s Regency period, she decided to attempt another manuscript set in that time Lady Rogue hit the shelves in March of 1997 She wrote a total of 29 books for Avon, including two anthologies and a five part contemporary series which received a pair of starred reviews from Publishers Weekly One of those books, Twice the Temptation, was named one of the five best romances of the year by PW in 2007.In 2002 her well known love of all things Star Wars led to an invitation to appear on the E channel in the television special Star Wars The Force Is Back , where she discussed the romance in the movie series and ended up with air time than George Lucas.In 2010 Suzanne left Avon Books for St Martin s Press, where she continues to pen historical romance novels Her 31st book, Taming an Impossible Rogue, is set to arrive in March 2012.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.facebook SuzanneEnoch

    1. My problem with this story is the sexual s in it I find it very distressing that a young woman who is completely dependent on her position as a schoolteacher would risk her livelihood by dallying with a careless lord, including having a sexual encounter in her schoolroom I spent the whole book waiting her someone to catch her and for her to get fired I was disappointed that she had such reckless decision making and also at the hero for being so selfish as to pursue an affair with a woman who rea [...]


    2. I won t bother with a long review as this book did not really create a strong, lasting impression There are a lot of stupid arguments between Emma and Grey, but what s worse is how Enoch manages to squeeze in sex scenes mandatory, of course in a scenario of a virtuous headmistress being seduced by a duke One would really need the headmistress to set a good example for her charges, after all, and some of her problems seemed to have been caused by insta lust I particularly did not enjoy the very l [...]


    3. A light historical with a feisty get out of my way heroine and a Jo Cool alpha who unexpectedly falls in love with the least likely woman Witty in your face dialog, some very mean characters from the infamous ton all set around a school that teaches girls how to become respectable ladies Not a lot of bedroom steam here but if you re looking for a well written quick story for the weekend this would be a good one to pick up.


    4. Grey really despises women and Emma doesn t think too highly of her fellow man either so this story has an amusing battle of the sexes His opinion of female education and their usefulness was pretty outrageous Really, dude Don t hold back Tell us how you feel Their combative relationship was a lot of fun to read about and for the first half of the book I was really enjoying it Grey s and Emma s witty banter was very lively and I was pretty happy with my decision to force myself to read this book [...]


    5. Whenever I am in a funk, I can almost always count on Suzanne Enoch to pull me out of it Her books are brain candy, filled with witty banter, sexy men, and hilarious situations While this book would not be what I consider a deep, historically accurate novel, it had all the elements that make up a good story.In previous reviews, I ve mentioned that Enoch often uses a formula Step 1 sexy man meets quirky but intelligent womanStep 2 they have witty banter and sexual chemistryStep 3 something bad ha [...]


    6. Le do y disfrutado hace a os No s porque no lo ten a calificado pero tomando en cuenta que casi no lo recuerdo supongo que fue un libro normalon Me gustaron m s los anteriores


    7. A fun ride with a girl s school headmistress and a rakish woman hating duke Worth a read, if you enjoy bad behavior and rakes, in general It has the added bonus of a varied cast, such as students, Triston the rake from The Rake before his love story , Grey s ex mistress, reappearance of this series H Hs and so on They are also quite entertaining The fights between Emma and Grey are fun and there is no angst Thank God Emma is easy to relate to, as she is basically a modern woman, working for her [...]


    8. I liked the tension between the h h from the beginning Nice theme of setting a wager and then they both realize that they can learn things.


    9. Enjoyable novel with a spirited and strong willed heroine The H was annoying at times he only became a little less aggravating towards the final quarter of the story The two OW were dull as dishwater, because they seemed incapable of acting as conventionally evil OW are expected to In fact, it was the machinations of one of the OW who sent spiteful letters intending to ruin the heroine that actually brought the H to the full realization that he loved the heroine and wanted to marry her It was gr [...]


    10. Sex and School, Yuk.Greydon Brakenridge, the Duke of Wycliffe, was duty bound to help his uncle with his money woes Toward that end, he suggested that his uncle triple his estate s rents Emma Grenville, headmistress of the finishing school situated on the Duke s uncle s estate, knew that the elevated rent would destroy the goals of her academy, so she protested this rent increase The Duke had reasons to want the Academy shuttered, and in his arrogance, he suggested a wager between himself and Mi [...]


    11. A Matter of Scandal rounds out Suzanne Enoch s With This Ring series, which was so enjoyable overall that I m pained that there is no epilogue to catch a last glimpse of these couples happily ever afters The premise was very similar to Lex and Lucien s only in that it is a nobleman falling for a prim governess, but beyond that Grey and Emma were very much their own power couple.I loved Grey despite the rather rough start to his character He has an air of entitlement that comes with being a duke, [...]


    12. This wasn t the first time I had read this novel A couple years ago I picked it up in a 2nd hand book store and when I started transitioning part of my bookcase to Kindle last year, this was one of the novels I really wanted to get a copy of It s a good, solid historical romance The characters are interesting and the situations different I like that they can t get along with each other at the beginning, and love that they have to change each other s mind pertaining to the school I especially lik [...]


    13. Pribojavala sam se ho e li uspjeti biti jednako dobra kao prethodne dvije, ali nisam trebala Odli an kraj serijala Predobra je ista petica






    14. What was I thinking Here s my brainstorm The other day I was looking at my walls and walls and walls of paperback books and wondering Wondering, wondering why am I saving these bulging piles Am I ever going to read them again In most cases, probably not Some of these books I just have no idea what s in them It s time to do some weeding Of course, there are some that will stay, for instance my entire collection of Mary Balogh s books from the beginning of time But with others I will have to be s [...]


    15. This is the cover of the paperback edition that I read It was a good story This story was first published in 2001, therefore I don t think we ll see what happens between Tristan and Georgiana.


    16. At last we get to read the third and final in Enoch s With This Ring Series This is the story of Emma Grenville, the young headmistress of a girl s finishing school who tangles with Greydon Brakenridge, the Duke of Wycliffe who can t resist her condescending ways towards him We ve gotten to know Emma slightly in the previous books and her happily ever ending was just delicious While visiting a relative in the country who is having money problems, Greydon helps him by having him raise his tenant [...]


    17. I reviewed this novel for Romance Reader At heart website RRAH s THOUGHTS AND PONDERINGS Emma Grenville is a spinster and the headmistress of a reputable girls school in Hampshire Greydon Brakenridge, the Duke of Wycliffe, finds himself in the middle of a London Season, visiting his uncle s estate in Hampshire and offering a solution to his money woos.To that end, Emma is soon drawn into a wager with this arrogant Duke, and she is determined to teach him a lesson and prove to him and all his fri [...]


    18. I m having second thoughts giving this novel a one or two star ratings I really love the tension between Grey and Emma Their relationship starts like a cat and mouse thing I find the first to three chapters amusing that s why I continue reading it But as I continue I find flaws in this story And I hate this feeling that I love this from the start and I ended up not sleeping OVERNIGHT First, how in their right mind, will someone, having sex from the first time in an office table wherein a few ste [...]


    19. When I m in the mood for a historical romance, I usually go to Susan Enoch Her writing is comfortable and has just enough spice This book is no exception The characters are so much fun especially the students at the academy The book may be from 2001, but that s the beauty of historical romances they never become outdated


    20. This is the 3rd and final book of this trilogy and most definitely my favorite It features Emma Grenville, who has been headmistress of the girls academy since her aunt s death Emma is a close friend of both Alexandra and Victoria.Greyson Brakenridge, the Duke of Wycliffe, is trying to help his uncle, Lord Haverly, to become solvent again Miss Grenville s academy is located on Haverly grounds and Wycliffe recommends increasing the rents of all tenants He holds a very low opinion of women s educa [...]


    21. Grreydon Brakenridge is traveling to Haverly Hall to visit with his aunt and uncle His uncle s estate is in financial trouble Grey s carriage breaks down, and he ends up a muddy mess Emma Greenville observes all this and thinks it to be funny Grey tells his uncle he must raise the tenant s rent or the estate will collapse Emma runs a school for girls on the estate She declares she cannot afford the rent increase She and Grey argue over the need to educate women One of her former students tried t [...]


    22. Clever headmistress intrigues rakish Duke so much that he sets out to ruin her Not so much to like about The Duke of Wycliff at first, but as Emma Granville and her students educate him, he grows up Though he does still want to ruin her, just in a sexual way, and has no compunction about what it might do to her as well as the Academy I had a hard time getting over that, as he WAS very much a rake, but he does come around And their banter was pretty entertaining Plus the girls interaction with Gr [...]


    23. Emma Grenville has been running her aunt s academy for over two years and she has done everything to keep the academy flowing smoothy until the price of rennt went up and a wager was made which had Emma placing everything on the line and that maybe something she can t afford.Grey Brakenridge, the Duke of Wycliffe escaped london to find something less devious to do but he didn t expect to help his uncle in running his estate nor did he expect to fall for a women let alone a educated women, but wh [...]


    24. This book showed promise but it was a little blah in the end While I normally don t have a problem with arrogant heroes, this one grated on my nerves a little too much I just couldn t like him He was just a little TOO much A little too sexist A little too overbearing A little too set from the very beginning that oh, this woman defies me so I will have sex with her and it will be okay Much of that is standard romance novel trope stuff, but it was just a little too much The heroine was okay except [...]


    25. The hero and heroine are instantly attracted to one another yawn The heroine is inexplicably considered on the shelf despite being pretty, intelligent, and kind though opinionated This is one of those books where the hero has NEVER had a woman stand up to him, and he is powerfully attracted to the one woman who will This romance novel trope has the sheen of feminism she stands up to him over a base of misogyny and all other women are lying, unlikable whores She falls into bed with him pretty fas [...]


    26. The plot was a bore I had the idea that the characters would be involved in some kind of interesting banter, apart from going on and on about the wager regarding the Academy The emotional development between the characters were poorly written that I don t find myself attached to them at all The only reason I read this was because of Tristan, Lord Dare and Georgiana s story, in which I was curious to read about Greydon Emma s story as they seemed like a sweet couple in the other book This story [...]
