The Handbook to Handling His Lordship: Scandalous Brides, Book 4 | [Suzanne Enoch]

The Handbook to Handling His Lordship: Scandalous Brides, Book 4

Emily Portsman has a secret, and three years ago she decided the best way to keep it would be to work at the Tantalus Club, a notorious gaming establishment for gentlemen. It's not the sort of work a beautiful, well-bred governess would ever consider - unless she's hiding from her past and a man who wants to destroy her present.... Nate Stokes, Earl of Westfall, is a supremely accomplished former spy more at home on London's seedy streets than in any glittery ballroom. His peers know him only as a bookish fellow who can find anything - or anyone....

Publisher's Summary

Emily Portsman has a secret, and three years ago she decided the best way to keep it would be to work at the Tantalus Club, a notorious gaming establishment for gentlemen. It's not the sort of work a beautiful, well-bred governess would ever consider - unless she's hiding from her past and a man who wants to destroy her present....

Nate Stokes, Earl of Westfall, is a supremely accomplished former spy more at home on London's seedy streets than in any glittery ballroom. His peers know him only as a bookish fellow who can find anything - or anyone. When the Marquis of Ebberling hires him to find a murderess, Nate's search leads him to the Tantalus Club and Emily Portsman. In a game where no one is who they seem and when every conversation is a deadly dance of trust and desire, the only thing Nate knows for sure is that once he gets Emily in his arms, he will never let go....

    "UNFORTUNATELY NOT THE BEST OF THE SERIES"

    Typical enjoyable SE listen - not your usual Rake/Virgin type romances - but this time it's about an Earl who is an ex government spy but who is now a self employed spy and has found his prey - a lowly member of staff at the famous Tantalus Club but he gets more than he bargained for.

    Unfortunately (but fortunately for them I guess) the pair hit it off immediately, seemed to go to bed together from almost the start and it was their first meeting - alright they each had their motives but this left a big gap for the listener to enjoy and savour the romantic and emotional build-up towards love and, hopefully, all the sexual chemistry which is involved. They have their sexual encounters but not too explicit, the plot seemed to overwhelm and drown the couple's relationship. However, thumbs up for the book cover!!!

    Worth a credit? I have listened to them all and she is an author I like so I guess, for me, it would be a YES but for someone new to the series/author then I would have to say NO keep your credit because she's written far better books. This could be a stand alone listen.

    "Exciting book leaving me to want the next one."

    I have enjoyed all the books in this series except for the second one it was good but I did not like the conflict. This book had such a great heroine (the distaff side of a self-made man). I cheered for her throughout. I love that Tantalus club. It was great to have appearances from characters of precious titles and now I really want to hear about Jenny. I doff my cap to Anne Flosnick for another brilliant job.

    "very few cliches here!"
    Where does The Handbook to Handling His Lordship rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    middle


    What other book might you compare The Handbook to Handling His Lordship to and why?

    It has a bit of a Courtney Milan feel to it, in that the characters are uncomfortable with rank and actually work.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The performance was rather bland. It's possible that it's just that I don't like Anne Flosnik's voice. She has a low, almost grating, tone that just bothers me.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I liked that the heroine's values were more liberated, and I loved the resolution.

    "Just OK"
    Would you try another book from Suzanne Enoch and/or Anne Flosnik?

    I have listened to and read some of the author's other books and found them enjoyable. I like Anne Flosnik. Her voice can be a little unemotional at times.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Suzanne Enoch again?

    Maybe.


    What does Anne Flosnik bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I like her accent.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Parts were good. Just didn't do it for me. I listen to a lot of audiobooks and maybe I'm more critical than most.
