4.0 out of 5 stars An entertaining Regency romance 28 Feb 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
"Taming Rafe" is a lighthearted and humorous historical romance set in Regency England. Rafael Michelangelo Bancroft wins Forton Hall from Nigel Harrington in a card game. Rafe a handsome and charming rake decides to visit his newly acquired estate to survey and sell it as soon as possible in order to obtain funds for his travels abroad.He is a notorious adventurer who never settles down and who dreams of China as his next destination. He receives the biggest shock of his life when he arrives in Forton Hall and finds the place not only with a collapsed roof in a highly dilapidated state but also inhabited by the two Harrington sisters.Felicity Harrington a young lady full of practical sense tries her best to look after her sister May and survive their straitened circumstances without servants and help.
She is strong but desperate and obviously not pleased by Rafe's claim of ownership. They fight from the first moment they meet and decide to wait for Nigel's arrival to prove Rafe's rights to the estate.Rafe is attracted to Felicity and she intrigues him immensely. He always knew how to handle women but Felicity outmanoeuvers him all the time. Of course he doesn't intend to stay any longer at the hall than necessary but he starts planning repairs to make the property sell better. Felicity is full of suspicions for him but she is not immune to his charms. She has never met such an irresistible man like him before. The air is sparkling between them and their attraction grows from day to day.Felicity is struggling with her love for her ancestral home and with her longing for Rafe, an unattainable adventurer who will leave her behind.Rafe's inner turmoil is no less bigger. He doesn't understand his own behaviour.He wants to set off for China and woe Felicity at the same time.

3.0 out of 5 stars good, but boring at times 2 Sep 1999
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
When my language arts teacher recommended Suzannne Enoch to me as a romance author, I immediately ran to the bookstore to buy her books. I read By Love Undone first and I loved it, so I eagerly picked up Taming Rafe right afterwards. I loved the character of Rafe, who is still the embodiment of the perfect rake for me. He's so charming, noble, caring, funny, and charismatic that I just fell in love with him. However, in my opinion, the plot was boring and I got tired of the storyline pretty quickly. Even Rafe couldn't speed it along. The characters are quite lovable, including little May and Beeks, the butler. But the heroine, Felicity, didn't appeal to me all that much, perhaps because the story centered around Rafe so much. All in all, the book had great characters, but the plot just plain bored me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Regency romance at its best 6 Feb 1999
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
After an adventure in Africa in which he almost became the guest of honor at dinner, Rafael Michelangelo Bancroft is back in London gambling, but mostly avoiding his father. Tonight he plays cards at Jezebel's Harem in Covenant Garden when one of the other players, Nigel Harrington, tosses in the deed to his ancestral home, Forten Hall, into the pot. Nigel wins the property and plans to sell it to give him a stake to see the world.
The worst that could happen has happened to Felicity Harrington. An arrogant rake now owns her family home. Felicity plans to save her family from the dire straits her twin brother Nigelcaused. However, when Felicity and Rafael meet, sparks fly. Soon love flourishes and plans are being revised. Still can a globetrotting roué settle down as a gentleman farmer with a spirited English lass? Perhaps this can occur when love is the catalyst.
Readers can not get enough of Suzanne Enoch's Regency romances. LADY ROGUE was simply great. BY LOVE UNDONE was incredible. Now Ms. Enoch does it again with the sequel (to BY LOVE UNDONE), TAMING RAFE. The story line is far from tame as the fast-paced romance will thrill the audience with its battle of wits, retorts, and unwanted love. Ms. Enoch continuously proves that there is plenty of life in the sub-genre.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great fun - don't be put off by the reviews 4 Feb 2000
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
If you enjoy Julia Quinn and Catherine Coulter then do give this book a try. It is great fun. Sure there are no serious insights but that's not the point. A light silly romp which you will read in one sitting grinning the whole while.
