There are not enough proper adjectives to truly express how simply wonderful the latest release from Suzanne EnochA LADY’S GUIDE TO IMPROPER BEHAVIOR—was to read from the first page to the last.

The Rules:

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 temper . . .

Aggravated beyond bearing by a man who speaks his mind, Tess wishes there was a guide to men like Bartholomew. Surely, with such an assortment of handsome, polite suitors to choose from, Tess should not ache for him.

And a lady should never pursue a gentleman.

She invites him on carriage rides and dares him to dance, and almost makes him want to return to Society. Bartholomew knows Tess wants to be seen as a proper miss, but deep down, he knows she is precisely the sort to spark his desire . . . A most improper lady

Reading one of Suzanne Enoch’s stories is like watching a truly great movie at home, having the remote close at hand, but refusing to hit the pause button for even a single moment, because only a shout of “Fire!” could possibly tear you away before the story ends. Theresa and Bartholomew’s story was no exception.

Reading one of Suzanne Enoch’s stories is like watching a truly great movie at home…

Theresa is determined to live the life of a perfectly proper and correct society lady, even if it kills her. Bartholomew considers himself “damaged goods”, doesn’t give a damn what society thinks and believes he might have been better off dead. Individually these two would give the matchmakers of eHarmony a coronary, but they don’t have the unique talent that Suzanne Enoch possesses for bringing couples, who appear to be polar opposites, together to make the perfect match.

A LADY’S GUIDE TO IMPROPER BEHAVIOR is filled with all the crisp, witty dialog and touching scenes of simple tenderness, I’ve come to expect from a Suzanne Enoch novel. Truly, one of my most recommended reads for the summer and I hope if this title is your first from this author, that you take the time go back and read some of her earlier releases as well—you won’t be disappointed.
