She has fallen in love with Bennett and knows he is attracted to her, but can she keep him away from the adventures that he loves so much?
he Care and Taming of a Rogue
is another great story by Suzanne Enoch. She combines humor and passion with quirky characters. Phillipa is not an adventurer (though she loves to read about them) and Bennett's society manners are not good. Readers will love the funny parts with Kero the monkey and sigh to watch love unfold between Phillipa and Bennett.
