Sullivan Waring has his mind set on two things and two things only, revenge and his rightful inheritance that was taken from him. He will find his revenge but will stumble upon Lady Isabel Chalsey who will find out his identity. He will soon be blackmailed but find this not to be too much of a hardship.
Lady Isabel Chalsey never expected to find a thief in her house let alone to kiss her. She will find out the thief and use that knowledge to find out more about this man. Soon finding the man to be everything she wanted.
After the Kiss is the first book to Suzanne Enoch’s series Notorious Gentleman. I had read the second book of hers and really liked the book. I am back with the first and third book to complete the series with Sullivan and Bram.
So the plot was fun and simple. The act of revenge is used often but Enoch writes it well for Sullivan who I really liked reading about. He knew what he wanted and wasn’t going to stop at anything but that leaves him to be lonely. Then there is Isabel who I wasn’t too thrilled at first with her. I didn’t like the idea that she was blackmailing Sullivan but she did see him for the man that he was. She does get better which makes her a good heroine after all.
The villain is Sullivan’s family clearly as you read through the book. They don’t really get anything bad happening to them but there is a lesson that is learned, Sullivan particularity.
This was another book that could stand alone on its own and you could understand perfect what was going on. The characters of Sullivan, Phin and Bram are mentioned or there in the book. Bram’s story is the next and last book.
