I found this book to be adorable, it was just so cute and fun. Not to mention that I liked the society that in this alternate England.

Magic is still around and English society is infused by it. The Royals have the most powers and then the Dukes and so forth. If you are without then you are stripped of titles and lands. Magic rules and different titles have different magic. I really liked what she created and it was interesting.

Our heroine is truly naive, but that is the only way she could be. No one ever notices Felicity and she believes she is a grey little mouse. But there lives a fighter in her that wants to peak her head out. She was sweet and innocent.

While the hero Terrance is something else entirely. There is one class of nobility that has no magic and that magic can't touch and that are the shapeshifters. But the Royals use them as spies since they can sense relic magic. And Terrance, well I wanted to be angry at him for using sweet Felicity, but at the same time he was falling for her so I forgave him. His beast knew better than he did.

A relic of evil magic must be found, a couple fall helplessly in love and all is not well in the country of England.

Conclusion:
Such a sweet story that I devoured in a day. Easy to read, easy to fall in love with

I picked up Enchanting The Lady for free some time ago and I thought it sounded very interesting. At first glance she drew me in with her description of the world she created: England's Ton gain title not by birth or wealth but with how much magic they can wield. In the beginning I was willing to overlook the "dead parents, living with family" background because it held such promise.

It all sunk when she's immediately in lust/love and enraptured by Sir Terence, a baronet shapeshifter who spies for the King. From there we are treated to only repetitious information about Merlin's 13 Relics, how evil it is, how his brother died, agony over who is loving who and how much.

The potential for a long, exciting romp through a new sort of London and Ton teased and nearly disappeared under the heavy romance.

I guess I'll spend my time daydreaming about the wonderful directions this story could have taken us.

Format: Kindle Edition
In this paranormal romance, Victorian England is a magical place. The nobility are titled based on the power of their magics. The more powerful they are the higher their rank. The Royal family is the highest and often employ Werefolk as advisers and bodyguards because they are impervious to magic.

Felicity Seymour is a Duchess-of-Honor. Her parents have died and in order to inherit the duchy outright she must pass her magical test. However she feels very vulnerable. She lives with her aunt and uncle who are very protective of her shelter her almost obsessively. She has always been easily overlooked and she can barely scare up a flame with her magic, much less perform the complex magic necessary to be confirmed as Duchess. She is sure she will lose the title.

Terence Blackwell a Were-lion. He immediately notices Felicity. And not just because she is beautiful but because she wears the taint of relic magic. It seems there are ancient relics wrought by Merlin himself that were left all over England. These magic relics are so powerful that in the hands of unscrupulous people they can be very destructive. As a chief spy for Prince Albert, Terence is determined to track down and destroy all the relics. Hence he starts a courtship of Felicity to discover the relic.

As I began reading this I wasn't very sure what to expect. I actually liked the idea of Magic being the determinate factor in granting titles and land. It is a nice twist on primogeniture. All in all it was a nice little book -- a quick read with a nod to the Cinderella story somewhat. After it was done, though I really felt like it could have been better. It was really quite a surface book, nothing dug very beneath the surface. I also found Felicity a bit of a drip. Very, very early on in the book...

The book was well worth the long wait to read. It didn't disappoint! This book is a fantastic mixture of history, suspense, magic and romance. I love the time and setting which lends itself to the wonderful romantic story between our main characters. The combination of romance and suspense makes for great reading. Not your normal story of "weres", witches and magic...
I loved how the authors description of the characters and magic allusions allow you to see them in your minds eye so clearly that they become more believable.
Great book.

As someone who doesn't like a lot of historical romance, I decided to read Enchanting the Lady mainly because of the paranormal aspect of the story. I am so happy I did! I love how Ms. Kennedy created a Victorian world that has magic in it. The fact that your magical ability is what determines your social position is a wonderful twist.

Felicity Seymour is the orphaned daughter of a Duke and Duchess. She should have the magical ability to retain her parent's title and lands but it appears she doesn't. Instead she is penniless and must live with her Aunt, Uncle and cruel cousin. Then she meets Sir Terence Blackwell.

While he may hold a title, Terence is at the bottom of the social ladder because he is a shapeshifter. Magic doesn't work on him and as a spy for the Crown his job is to find magical relics that were crafted by Merlin himself. He can sense that Lady Felicity has been near one and believes she may be in possession of it.

This is a wonderful start to a series and I can hardly wait to get my hands on Double Enchantment!
