More About the Author

A lifelong lover of books, Suzanne Enoch has been writing them since she learned to read. She is the author of two well-received Avon Regencies, The Black Duke's Prize and Angel's Devil, and five Avon Romances: Lady Rogue, Stolen Kisses, By Love Undone, Taming Rafe and Reforming a Rake. Born and raised in Southern California, Suzanne lives a few scant miles from Disneyland with her collection of Star Wars action figures and a Cairn terrier named Katie (after the heroine of her first Regency). She's still looking for her own hero, and hopes he will be handsome, titled, and just a little wicked. Meanwhile, she's currently at work inventing him in her next historical romance.

I loved the hero and heroine.

Her brother verbally abused her, showed no love to her, and used her to get what he wanted, but she still wanted to help him into Parliament.

I have been reading historical romances for ages but somehow this is the first book I've ever read by Suzanne Enoch.

When I picked up this book it was with the intention that this light fluff would enable me to escape the worries of the day and fall asleep with a bit of a smile on my lips. For doing so I thank Suzanne Enoch. I also blame her for writing such a novel that I felt compelled to stay up until I had finished the entire book and lost a bit of sleep. :)"London's Perfect Scoundrel" supposes the idea that in each of us there has to be some grain of goodness which is what Evelyn Ruddick believes. And as she sets out to prove to "Saint" that her intentions for the orphanage are more than a mere whim, she also intends to prove that he is much more than what he appears.
This book was a delightful romp that had you rooting for Evelyn and hoping she is truly right when it comes to Saint.
I ranked this 4 stars for 2 reasons. I would have loved to see Evelyn grow a backbone where it concerns her overly ambitious brother. And I would have enjoyed an epilogue to this.

London's Perfect Scoundrel is a good devil/angel themed story, but yet Enoch's newest has much more than the category romance fiction theme going for it. It is truly about a man who has an epiphany, has redemption due to the heroine of the story.
Evelyn wanted to make a difference in her life, so one day while passing the Heart of Hope Orphanage, she decides to volunteer there. But she has to get the board of trustees permission first, and the head of the board is Michael, the Marquis of St. Aubyn who is known as Saint for his unsaintly like ways. He ridicules Evie because he doesn't believe her efforts will amount to much, and that she is only volunteering for a diversion.
There are several skirmishes during the first half of the novel, that come to a head when Evie kidnaps Saint and locks him in the orphanage basement for a week.
While he tries to repent (half heartedly at first) he eventually comes to care very deeply for Evie and her cause. He too wants to make a difference and not let her down, so he has to find a way to keep the orphanage open and not have her be married off to Clarence, Mr. Avlington.
The only thing I didn't like was how Evie kept crying in the book. She really didn't stand up much as a heroine, she was kind of weak willed. She should have stood up to her brother, no matter how much she loved her family. Saint was a totally wicked hero, but he was wonderful too. I don't think I have ever read about a more jaded, cynical Regency hero. They seem mismatched, especially with Evie's weak-willed personality, but in the end, they did fit together.
All in all, a great story. I enjoyed the romantic scenes and the orphanage scenes which provided a lot of humor for the story. Suzanne Enoch has written another winner and I look forward to Lucinda Barrett's story, featuring Robert Carroway, Lord Dare's war tormented brother.

Fans of Ms. Enoch would probably miss the lack of robust humour from Meet Me At Midnight but fret not, London's Perfect Scoundrel has redeemed itself with laudable characters who set themselves apart from the reckless couple in The Rake.
This love story is essentially a tale of redemption and a faithful ode to love and its reforming powers. Evie Ruddick is set to derive meaningful pleasure in her life by dedicating herself to voluntary work at the Heart Of Hope Orphanage, who unfortunately gets mocked by the director and notorious rogue of the ton Marquis of St. Aubyn whom ironically everyone calls "Saint". This hardened cynic sets himself to seduce the virginial Evie while giving her a tour of the house. With no particular attachment to the orphanage, he agrees to sell to the Royal Prince to pave way for development - indirectly crushing the dreams of Evie.
Readers seethe at what a scoundrel he is and joyfully laud at his "imprisonment" at the cellars of the orphanage executed by Evie and the children. Isolation and darkness forces him to rethink and admire Evie's passion as well as falling inexorably in love. He reforms by taking political ambitions, making amendments while courting Evie, who is ruthlessly used by her brother Victor as a pawn to his political career. She is to marry the dull Lord Alvington and give up Saint.
Ms. Enoch heats the tale with sizzles and seduction but also manages to deliver responsible matured characters who are true to themselves. Evie weighs family obligations with love; Saint is a flawed man who admits mistakes and rectifies them. These are endearing creatures who make this lesson of love ultimately sobering and enriching.

This was a fun read by Ms. Enoch and a lovely addition to the Lessons in Love series. This is Evelyn's story and she has picked the "Perfect Scoundrel" to reform. Saint is anything but. He is a rake, scoundrel and totally the opposite of the good hearted Evie. That's why they are so perfect together. The story of how Evie saves Saint is wonderful to read. She is always trying to do the right thing and he is always trying to do the wrong. That is until he faces off with Evie. Saint then finds himself reforming his old ways and having a change of heart where the Orphanage is concerned. Evie wants to make her mark on life and she has decided that the way to do this is to get involved with an orphanage. What happens when an angel with good intentions meets the Saint? Well, they teach orphans how to waltz of course!
Old friends from previous books by Ms. Enoch make different appearances which is always nice. Do yourself a favor and add this book to your summer/fall reading list. You won't be sorry.
