Oh, I really wanted to like this! I love the idea of it; the premise. It's an alternate-history, magical 19th Century London setting and had some terrific world-building elements. I love the idea of the magical community's hierarchy based on power levels and abilities. You've got Kings and Queens with the most power, including the ability to alter matter--change one thing into another thing. Then you've got Dukes who can create long-lasting illusions and casts spells and work potions. And so on and so forth with Barons, Viscounts and Marquesses with less and less power each time, right down to the lowest of the low, Baronets, who are essentially shapeshifters with just that one ability--to change shape--but are otherwise immune to magic. Their immunity causes them to suffer scorn and distrust from the upper-ranked magic workers who don't like people on whom their magic has no effect.

So far, it's all good. I liked the world and I even thought I might like the two main characters until I got to know them better. On paper they sound fabulous. There's Felicity, a girl who believes herself plain and forgettable. So forgettable, in fact, that people often overlook her entirely, even going so far as to sit on her because they didn't see her occupying the chair. And then you have handsome lion shifter Terrence (who is not a train), whose visual description made him look like Chris Hemsworth to my mind's eye. Mmm. And their first meeting was kinda sweet. But that's where it all started to go a little wrong for me.

The 'romance' just did nothing for me in the end. Felicity turned out to be extremely weak and timid and rather gullible and, well, just a bit stupid, really. Terrence was...okay, if you discount is horrible deception of such a sweet-natured (and stupid) young girl.

HASH(0x98e4fb10) out of 5 stars delightful 2 Aug. 2012
By Blodeuedd - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
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

HASH(0x989872ac) out of 5 stars Had potential but didn't quite get there 9 Jun. 2013
By TinaW - Published on Amazon.com
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...I'd say chapter two, the reader could very easily figure out what is going on. I was very disappointed that Felicity didn't seem to be able to put two and two together. She was too credulous. She had no self preservation meter. You'd think she'd question things more. Instead she was content to have a bit of a ...well a big... pity party. I wanted her to have a bit more agency. Instead, she was very content for Terrence to save her. That bugged me some. I understand that this is the first in a series. I probably won't be checking out the remaining books right away, but may do so sometime in the future

HASH(0x9e9ef174) out of 5 stars Whirlwind Romance Sinks 13 Aug. 2012
By Spiral Dancer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
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.

HASH(0x988bedbc) out of 5 stars Charm + Sizzle, great read! 13 Aug. 2012
By Heather BookSavvyBabe - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I love romance, especially paranormal and historical romances. So, when I came across this book that combines my two favorite sub-genres, I had to give it a try. I was not disappointed. Enchanting the Lady had me charmed from the minute I started reading and thoroughly engaged in the story until the very last page.

I loved the world in this story, it is a historical time period (England in the 1800s), but the social heirarchy is determined by magic. The world is full of magic and illusion, spell casters and shape shifters. It took me a little while to fully understand the world, but I loved the creativity and the characters.

Lady Felicity is used to being ignored, passed over, and not having any magic. However, when Sir Terrence Blackwell, a lion shapeshifter crosses her path, her life begins to change. Terrance has no trouble seeing past the magic hiding Felicity, it is dangerous relic magic that doesn't affect his kind. It is Terrance's job to find the relic behind the magic which gives him an excuse to get close to Felicity. However, Terrance tries to keep his heart guarded because he has been deceived before and he can't be sure that Felicity is being used by the relic or the one using the forbidden magic.

I enjoyed how this story unfolded. Felicity is slowly introduced to the world outside of her over protective aunt and uncle's home. Terrance and Felicity have a sizzling connection, even though Terrance tries to deny it. By the end of the book, I was frustrated with Terrance's lack of trust in Felicity, he let his past cloud his judgement. However, Terrance grows as a character and as he learns the truth, his fierce lion nature takes over, making for a thrilling story.

Readers, if you like paranormal or historical romances, I highly recommend giving this book a try. I very much enjoyed this one and I am adding the rest of this series to my to-read list.

HASH(0x98a693cc) out of 5 stars Wonderful! 20 Aug. 2012
By Dani Chapman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
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!
