This is the first book I have read by Suzanne Enoch, and I really enjoyed her writing. By Love Undone (The Bancroft Brothers). She manages to tell an engaging, sometimes funny, sometimes heart pounding, and occasionally touching story of two people who both have a few things to learn about how to trust and how to love each other. I really loved the hero, Tristan.

Today he used only one cane, and unless Quin was mistaken, he looked as though he wanted to wallop his nephew with it. Good morning, Uncle.

Speaking of whom, Malcolm put in, allowing Quin to help him navigate the stairway, have you forgotten about her? Forgotten about Maddie? I could as easily forget to breathe.

Readable! Enjoyed first half of book more than second half , ending was decent but disjointed! Heroine started out self confident & strong , became timid & fearful when she reentered society, she didn't stick up for herself against sceeming betrothed of hero, & let her father walk all over her ! Personality wasn't consistent

I am so glad that I discovered Suzanne Enoch's books. Her writing definitely hits the spot for me; she's a very talented author and I give all of her books 5 stars for all the many hours of reading enjoyment she has given me! I really liked 'By Love Undone' - and especially when Eloise got her comeuppance, along with Maddie's ex. The two of them were so awful, and Eloise was so manipulative and mean-spirited, she certainly didn't deserve Quin. And, you have to love Rafe too, he is so comical! I read his story in, 'Taming Rafe' and absolutely loved that one. A must read! I look forward to reading 'Hero in the Highlands' - due to be released in the fall of 2016, I think - can't wait!! Thank you Suzanne!!!!

I very much enjoy this author's other books, which is probably why I didn't rate this only one star. However, this is either an earlier work (earlier than actually published) or a quickly written money grab.

The heroine literally punches men. I am fairly certain this is abuse, I don't believe I'd like it if the hero punched her a few times but then really loved her and would never do it again. There is some incongruent word usages, the hero's intended (for most of the book) uses the words bitch and s***. The heroine is interrupted saying the word 'bugger'. I'm fairly certain that saying 'demmed' was highly frowned upon for young ladies of this era, these are harsh curse words that a young lady would not say, full stop.

The initial sex scene is essentially a physical fight that develops into lovemaking. Because that is what turns everybody one, physically fighting. Oof!

Otherwise the storyline is weak and flimsy, why does Mr. Bancroft want her restored to society? No legitimate reason, she could have married the squire in her original area and lived a perfectly happy life away from proper society. Oh, and [SPOILER] the hero throws over his fiancée two weeks before the wedding to elope... so he would have been cut by all proper society, a gentleman would have never, ever thrown over a lady. He would have had to come up with a reason for her to dump him or release him from the engagement, which would have made this story much more interesting with an extra subplot!

I highly recommend other novels by this author, but this is a skip!

Suzanne Enoch is an extremely talented writer and I absolutely loved By Love Undone, the first of the Bancroft Brothers books (followed by Taming Rafe). Maddie and Quin are wonderful characters and their romance is so enjoyable to read. The witty dialogue and verbal sparring is highly entertaining and Maddie is a great heroine, a real spitfire who is not afraid to stand up for herself. It was also a wonderful change to have the hero be unafraid to declare that he's in love (in this book, it's the heroine who is reluctant to admit her feelings out loud). The secondary characters were well-written and three dimensional; the Duke and Duchess (Quin's parents) were both complex characters and neither of them was portrayed as being simply "good" or "bad," making them very realistic. I loved Rafe, Quin's younger brother, and cannot wait to read his story.

SUMMARY:
Madeleine Willits was 18 years old when she was ruined after being caught kissing a young man who was not her fiance (the guy was actually drunk and forcing himself on her). Her friends and fiance abandon her and her parents lock her in her room; she escapes and decides to create a new life for herself, leaving London behind and vowing to have nothing more to do with London society or the nobility. When we meet Maddie, she is 23 years old and has been been the companion to an elderly gentleman, Mr. Malcolm Bancroft, for four years. Malcolm receives a letter from his brother, the Duke of Highbarrow, telling him that Malcolm's nephew Quinlan Bancroft, Marquis of Warefield (30), is coming to visit. Although Maddie has promised her employer she will be on her best behavior, she can barely control her antipathy and antagonism towards Quin (she pretends to cover it by being sickeningly sweet).

Quin is the upstanding and obedient elder son who has always fulfilled his obligations and taken care of his responsibilities, yet he is confounded by the immediate hostility he encounters upon meeting his uncle's companion - whom he assumes is actually Malcolm's mistress. When Malcolm (a great secondary character!) catches Maddie and Quin kissing, he insists that Quin help reintroduce Maddie to society to make up for it. The battle of wits that ensues is highly entertaining and you will greatly enjoy seeing Quin and Maddie getting to know, like, and eventually love one another.

There is a subplot involving characters who are trying to stop Quin and Maddie from getting their HEA and although I don't usually like contrived obstacles that get in the way of the hero and heroine's love story, there were none of those major misunderstandings/mix-ups between the main characters that sometimes ensue, so it didn't really detract from the book.

MAIN CHARACTERS:
Maddie is a strong and independent heroine; she's very likable and admirably overcomes a painful past and creates a new life for herself. Like I said before, she's a spitfire who sticks up for herself and it's fun to watch her clash with Quin (and the Duke!!). Quin is a terrific hero; a lot of times the guys are rakes whom the heroine tames, so it was a nice change to have the hero be a man who is normally Mr. Respectable Nice Guy and who meets in the heroine a woman who makes him want to let passion and his heart guide him.

BOTTOM LINE:
A must-read that I would recommend buying; classified as a keeper and definite re-read in my library. Other Enoch books that I have read and enjoyed include A Matter of Scandal (With This Ring, Book 3) and London's Perfect Scoundrel (Lessons in Love, Book 2), as well as Taming Rafe which is this book's sequel.

I liked the development of this story. It was clear and concise without a thousand subplots and enoch kept the focus on the hero and heroine. The characters were well developed and I enjoyed reading of their struggles to come together. Sometimes keeping the story simple is such a good idea. So many HR authors seem to have forgotten that in their new releases - I guess in attempts to come up with something new they end up muddling down a story with just too much ado. Also, the love scenes in here were hot, even if short. It amazes me how almost all of the new books out have the first love scenes between the couple take up several pages with them going through every base and more and back again before they (how in the world do I delicately put this?) get on with it. That just seems so unrealistic. I think there is more likely to be so much passion in most of the circumstances in a story and still a little bit of timidity with a first time. So I just really enjoyed reading this today and recommend it as fun and loving read.
