5.0 von 5 Sternen Leading the Rogues Gallery is... 16. Juni 2000
Von Julianne
The baddest scoundrel of them all- Lucien Balfour, the 6th Earl of Kilcairn Abbey. A blackguard to the core and with a terrible reputation is about to be reformed by a governess, whose reputation is about as bad as his. Lucien is deliciously roguish and arrogant and it's gleefully fun to see Alexandra Beatrice Gallant trying to reform him. Although, her real job is to be a governess to Lucien's young cousin. With a foul scandal following on her heels, the last thing she need is another scandal. Alexandra is determined to make it in the world without any one's help... after all, she's been on her own since 17...
(On a side note: "Sexy" could not describe Lord Lucien Balfour... he is not only HOT in the looks department but very charming and funny... As Alexandra describes him "tall, strong and magnificent" like "Greek statues in the museum".)
With so many romance novels out in the market, it's refreshing to read one with an interesting plot and characters with witty dialogues... I loved Lucien's dry wit and Alexandra's quick comebacks. It's good to see two stubborn and memorable characters carry on a battle of the wits and a great interaction with lots of sexual tension.
The question is... can this bad boy be reformed by a governess who's been starched with propriety to the bone?
You really should find out.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Entertaining, but leave credibilty at the door 19. Mai 2000
This is a fun read, and I really did like both Lucien and Alexandra; Rose and Robert were interesting as secondary characters, as well. Enoch gives us some intriguing insights into both Lucien and Alexandra's thought processes as this romance plays out. There are some very amusing scenes, and much of the dialogue between Lucien and Alexandra is highly witty. Lots of good sexual tension early on, too!
But - and I know I'm going to get lots of 'not helpful' votes for this - Enoch hasn't done her period research properly, and that partly spoils the book for me. I prefer my Regencies not to have inaccuracies which jump out at me, wrenching me from the story. For instance, once Lucien gives Alexandra the job (at some time after 12 noon), he lends her his carriage to collect her belongings, and says he will see her at dinner that evening. She then goes to Derbyshire and back... in an afternoon! Even now, with a fast car and if relatively little traffic could be guaranteed, it would take three to four hours to get from central London to Derbyshire, one way only. The later journeys to Hertforshire and back sounded similarly fantastical.
Some of the 'feel' of the period was wrong to me; although I enjoyed the explanation of delaying tactics for young ladies stuck for dinner table conversation, otherwise the Society scenes just didn't seem to have the accuracy of a Balogh or an Oliver.
I found Fiona, Rose's mother, to be completely beyond all credulity, and her marital ambitions for Rose, revealed later in the book, made no sense whatsoever given her characterisation and behaviour earlier. The character was a caricature, and spoilt the book for me.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Wonderful Must Have 5. Juli 2000
Von "-renee-"
Reforming A Rake does a great job of entertaining the reader from start to finish. The characters and plot are superb. Suzanne Enoch has created a fun and exciting story.
Alexandra Gallant is a governess with a horrible reputation. She has ruined herself and can not find a position in any respectable household.
Lucien Balfour, the Earl of Kilcairn Abbey, is the worst kind of rake. His reputation is atrocious and debutantes faint at the sight of him. Lucien must find a suitable governess and companion for his wayward cousin and her overbearing mother. He needs someone who can prepare his cousin, Rose, to be presented to society. Even after finding out all the details of Alexandra's reputation, Lucien hires her.
Alexander does a grand job of transforming Rose into a society miss. However, Rose's mother, Fiona causes trouble for Lucien and Alexandra. The story moves along at a fast pace and is very easy to read. There are several wonderful supporting characters who provide lots of comic relief and help to make the story a pleasure to read.

5.0 von 5 Sternen ENOCH'S BEST BOOK! 7. Juni 2000
Von Ein Kunde
This is by far Enoch's best book--although Taming Rafe is very close. The hero and heroine are very evenly matched and you can't help but fall for the hero. He's everything a hero should be - persistent in his pursuit for the governess, very vulnerable to love, and considerable to a fault( when he kidnaps her, he tries to make her comfortable in the cellar). I have read Enoch's works in the past and have enjoyed her works, but this is her best by far. The characters, the plot and the dialogue come together very well in this book and I highly recommend it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A witty and romantic read 14. März 2000
Von Ein Kunde
I enjoyed this book so much that I read it twice in a row - the story and dialog are so good I wanted to be sure that I didn't miss anything! Alexandra Gallant and Lucien Balfour, The Earl of Kilcairn Abbey, are two "notorious" members of British society who come together when Lucien hires Alexandra to be governess to his intolerable niece. The immediate attraction between these two leads to lots of witty repartee, and some very heated moments. Although Alexandra and Lucien quickly fall in love, they must both shed their self-protective shells before they can commit to each other. Surprisingly, it is Lucien who breaks down first! I enjoyed seeing him do everything that he can think of (and he does some crazy things) to convince Alexandra to marry him. There are also some great supporting characters in this story, including two who do everything they can to foil Alexandra and Lucien's union. You'll love these characters and this book!

This couple is interesting - the polar opposite of Katherine and Reed in Defenders of the Holy Grail!. The scenario is a little tired, but there is some good humor within. Lesen Sie weiter...

I have read a couple of Suzanne Enoch's books and found them terribly bland. The characters and plots were generally forgettable. This book has restored my faith in Enoch's books. Lesen Sie weiter...
