and Taming an Impossible Rogue




A Beginner’s Guide to Rakes Prequel


A young, penniless widow. An inveterate rogue with a gambler’s charm. A chance meeting that leaves them both breathless with desire …


Widowed after only two years of marriage, Diane Benchley, Countess of Cameron, is left alone in a foreign place with nothing but the clothes on her back and a mountain of her late husband’s gambling debts. Before the young raven-haired beauty can give in to despair, she meets Oliver Warren, the rebellious and disinherited heir to the Marquis of Haybury. Wickedly flirtatious and powerfully handsome, Oliver is everything Diane’s husband was not, and she longs to taste true passion just once. Their clandestine affair is a deliciously sensual education—but will it also be a lesson in love?


Don’t miss Suzanne Enoch’s breathtaking romances—where passion is always more tempting than propriety…
