I accepted this set-up and jumped in, mostly because I love Enoch stories and I'm running out of them. I was unsure how to rate this one. I think ultimately, it falls b ...more
Taming Rafe is the second of Suzanne Enoch's Bancroft Brothers books, the sequel to By Love Undone. I really enjoyed it, but I would also highly recommend reading the prequel - it's the better of the two and one of Enoch's best ...more

While trying to win enough money to get to China, Africa or wherever he wins a broken down estate instead ...more
There, I said it.
I had my heart up in my throat most of the time, when Rafe and Felicity are together. This is a extremely cute story of a second son of a duke and a damsel in distress, aka the twin sister of a idiotic young who lost his inheritance to said second son. Rafe is a good-natured rake. He lacks nothing except a sense of belonging. A rather first world problem he has, I would say. His problem is never measuring up to his older brother and his fath ...more
After reading Quinlan’s story, here is his brother’s-Rafael-story.
It has a complete change of scenery with all the action taking place in the country in a falling down estate.
Miss Felicity Harrington is an heroine as I love them, no badass but able to make things do, not bending down even when up against the wall. She fights for those she loves, she makes mistakes but does not ...more
The writing itself is eh, and the historical accuracy is ... wanting. The hero and heroine spend most of the book living together in the same house, without much in the way of scandal. Rafe is all right, and Felicity for the most part is okay, although she does have REALLY annoying moments where she'll ask him ...more
I liked Felicity because although she experienced real disappointment, she took only the time necessary to dwell on it. She met obstructi ...more
I thought it would be a fluffy romance novel.. but this book really amazed me. It had emotion and humor involved.
This was a scene which made me all gooey inside and I re-read it just to visualize the whole thing again and again.

There wasn't any real laugh out loud funny moments but it did at least make me smile and the H and h weren't complete idiots which sets it up way above my recent romance reads.
Also, bad dude went waaaaaay whackadoodle at the end. Like, waaaaaaay whackadoodle. There needed to be more build up to that.
However, May was adorable and I would read an entire series about her.
