Image of After the Kiss: The Notorious Gentlemen

The first installment of the Notorious Gentlemen series is a winning combination of sensuality, mystery and a "deep sigh" read. Enoch's sprightly wit and intense emotions flow through the pages, taking her story straight into your heart.

Lady Isabel Chalsey catches the Mayfair Marauder stealing a painting off the wall and tries to stop the masked bandit. He steals a kiss, but not before she sees his face.

Though Sullivan Waring is a respected horse breeder, he feels the sting of the ton's scorn. He's only taking back what belongs to him -- his mother's painting. But now he's been unmasked, and the only way to keep Isabel quiet is to play along with her blackmail scheme by training a horse for her to ride. Sullivan is the only man who's captured Isabel's interest, and the feeling is mutual. As he gentles the mare, he also eases Isabel's fear of horses. Slowly, the simmering sexual tension between them grows to a glorious passion, but Sullivan's past, dark secrets and pride may tear them apart. (Avon, Jul., 368 pp., $6.99)
