Book Description

Once upon a time . . .

in a kingdom high in the Pyrenees, three young princesses were forced to flee the chaos in their land—vanishing without a trace and lost to their people . . . until the day a courageous prince can bring the princesses home.

One of Scotland's most dangerous men, Robert MacKenzie is dazzled by the enchanting beauty who rides into the town he is sworn to defend. Though he is wary of the exquisite stranger, Clarice stirs emotions within him that Robert buried deeply years before. And now he must have her at any cost, vowing to gain her trust through the powers of his sensuous seduction.

Torn between her need to protect her secrets and her aching desire for the dark, tormented earl of Hepburn, Clarice is pulled into Robert's glamorous world . . . and into his perilous plan for justice and revenge. And with the winds of treachery swirling around them, a runaway princess must draw Robert's heart from the shadows and make him believe in happily-ever-after.

    In 2014, Christina is publishing the Lost Hearts series in e-book, all enhanced with extra material:
    -- JUST THE WAY YOU ARE
    -- ALMOST LIKE BEING IN LOVE
    -- CLOSE TO YOU
    And Christina's all-new series, Virtue Falls, starts with:
    -- THE LISTENER: A Virtue Falls e-Short Story (July 1)
    -- VIRTUE FALLS: A Full-Length Suspense (Sept 9)

    Readers become writers, and Christina Dodd has always been a reader. She reads everything, but because she loves humor, she likes romance best. A woman wants things like world peace, a clean house, and a deep and meaningful relationship based on mutual understanding and love. A man wants things like a Craftsman router with attachments, undisputed control of the TV remote, and a red Corvette which will miraculously make his bald spot disappear. When Christina's first daughter was born, she told her husband she was going to quit work and write a book. It was a good time to start a new career, because how much trouble could one little infant be?

    Ha! It took ten years, two children and three completed manuscripts before her first novel, CANDLE IN THE WINDOW, was published to great acclaim. In the years since, she has enjoyed writing witty, emotional novels for every reader: suspense, historical romances, paranormal romances, romantic suspense. Her stories have been translated into 25 languages, won the prestigious Golden Heart and RITA Awards and been called the year's best by Library Journal. Christina Dodd herself has been a clue in the Los Angeles Times crossword puzzle (11/18/05, # 13 Down: Romance Novelist named Christina.) Publishers Weekly praises her style that 'showcases Dodd's easy, addictive charm and steamy storytelling.' With more than fifteen million of her books in print, her legions of fans always know that when they pick up a Christina Dodd book, they know they've found a story "For the wild at heart!"

    Christina Dodd is married to a man with all his hair and no Corvette, but many Craftsman tools.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Great, with only some disappointments 11 Aug. 2005
    By D. Lane - Published on Amazon.com
    Format:Mass Market Paperback
    I liked it for the most part. Robert was a perfect hero and Clarice is just the match for him. I found the characters to be multi-dimensional and the author weaves a mystery into the story without slowing it down or interrupting the romantic flow. I loved that were too lost souls who found each other. They healed each others wounds. Robert is handsome, sexy, intelligent, but embittered by life. I am always a sucker for stories with "heartless" heroes who find their souls through the love of a good woman. I really loved Robert's sister Millicent. Millicent MacKenzie, the spinster sister of Robert MacKenzie, Earl of Hepburn. Seeing her blossom was a joy to watch. But the ending of the book was not well thought out at all. I agree the other view about how Robert seemed upset before Clarice left, but afterward he was okay because she'd told him to "be happy". It seemed like he'd gotten over her pretty quick. But when she came back, he had all this powerful emotion again.That just didn't set well with me. If it weren't for the wonderful epilogue. I would have been quite upset. I do hope there are more stories about Clarice's sisters and hopefully Millicent.

    A sexy hero, a feisty heroine, a mystery, and a passionate romance...put them all together and you get "Some Enchanted Evening", a historical romance you don't want to miss. Dodd developed Clarice and Robert's personalities and motivations very convincingly, to the point where you feel as though you know them well enough to be friends by the time you finish the book. The two meet and the sparks fly from page one. Ms. Dodd writes some of the wittiest dialogue around -- I was laughing out loud at times. One of the things I liked best about this book is the way the author wove the emotional storyline with such a light touch -- I was engrossed with the relationship between the hero and heroine and truly felt as if I knew them both. Some Enchanted Evening was an emotional roller coaster, and I felt all the pain and joy they did. I was so engrossed, I read it in a day. The love scenes are ample & steamy, and the plot is a good one. A fast paced book with an intricate plot that I cannot help but enjoy. Some Enchanted Evening has a strong (but not obnoxious) heroine who is in no way ordinary, a back story which is compelling but doesn't get in the way of the love story, and of course a wonderful hero.

    2.0 out of 5 stars 2 1/2 stars: Not so bad, and yet, not so good either 16 Oct. 2004
    By Girl Friday Reader - Published on Amazon.com
    Format:Hardcover
    Christina Dodd has written a number of sexy, witty, emotional, memorable reads over the last decade or so; but unfortunately, Some Enchanted Evening is not one of them. I had high expectations regarding this novel; not only because of the author, but because the premise was so neat, and it sounded a bit like Sleeping Beauty--my favorite fairy tale.

    Clarice and Robert were very underdeveloped, the pacing was very slow, the villain/Robert's goal was very, very weak, and the love scenes between the two were way too early and way too unbelievable. They'd only met two-three days ago, as I recall, Clarice wishes to go home, she's forever spouting about being a princess, yet she sleeps with a man she barely even knows.

    Robert's character was irratic--I never knew who he was enough to feel any emotion for him, and his hazily described past. His immediate plan to use Clarice for his own personal vendetta became tiresome after a while, and then, the vendetta he wished upon his enemy was a big let-down;it wasn't even that dramatic, after all of the build-up about it.

    Plus; this series has remarkable similarities to Connie Brockway's Rose Hunters Trilogy: in the fact that they both features three impoverished sisters, are set within the early years of the nineteenth century. This book in particular was similar to My Seduction: heroine wanting to gain back her heritage through patronage of someone, a battle-weary hero who was betrayed by a comrade, and it's set in Scotland.

    If you're a die-hard Dodd fan, you'll probably read this book regardless of reviews, but if you've never read her, this isn't a book to start with. I personally recommend "In My Wildest Dreams" or "Rules of Attraction"

    4.0 out of 5 stars A SWEETLY REGAL READING 6 Sept. 2004
    By Gail Cooke - Published on Amazon.com
    Format:Audio CD
    And you thought the princess and the pea had problems! . They were as nothing compared to challenges faced by the three young royals in Christina Dodd's period romance, the first in a planned trilogy.

    Listeners learn quite quickly that being to the manor born is no guarantee of a cushy life as three sisters, princesses, are forced to leave their home country when revolution breaks out. However, they do not live in peace as they're chased by those who want to kill them. It's the 1700s, not a time for princesses to be alone. Nonetheless, Clarice attempts to take care of her sisters by starting a cosmetic business, selling face creams to women in the villages they pass through.

    There's little hope for any other females who have designs on handsome hunk Robert MacKenzie when he sees the beautiful Clarice ride into town. He is smitten, and invites her to visit him at his manor house......need we say more? If you know Christina Dodd, you know that romance and intrigue ensue.

    Elizabeth Sastre gives a sweetly regal performance as the story of Clarice and Robert unfolds. She has a breathy innocence in her voice that brings the young princess to life.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Breathtaking 8 May 2005
    By M. Lorenz - Published on Amazon.com
    Format:Mass Market Paperback
    There's no denying it: I love this book. I am anxiously awaiting the next in the series. And this book affirmed my undying love for Christina Dodd.

    First of all, I have a thing about names. Some romance authors use the most absurd names. Dodd (so far as I know) has done no such thing. Clarice is a splendid name, and there's just something manly about the name Robert.

    With that said, SOME ENCHANTED EVENING was one of the greatest historical romances I have read, period. At first I was miffed by Clarice's entrance in the novel, and thought I would have written it a different way, but as I went along I realized that I was laboring under a misconception about the princess; I would just have written her entire character a different way. And I am pleased as punch with the way Dodd wrote her.

    My favorite character in the novel is Millicent MacKenzie, the spinster sister of Robert MacKenzie, Earl of Hepburn. I dearly hope that there will be a spin-off novel about Millicent's belated love story. The way that Clarice nurtures Millicent's timid nature and turns her from a wallflower into a diamond of the first water merely by giving her confidence stole my heart.

    I am also a big fan of truly obnoxious characters getting their comeuppance. Not only does it require an author to make a genuinely obnoxious character that the reader wants to throttle every step of the way, but then the author has to appropriately and efficiently take that character down a notch. Leaving the reader hurrah-ing loudly and getting odd looks from passersby.

    I won't ruin the ending, but while it ties everything up nicely (what romance novel doesn't?), it also leaves the reader checking Amazon.com and ChristinaDodd.com obsessively to find out when Princess Amy's story is coming out.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Good first book to a series 1 Jun. 2005
    By Jennifer Banker - Published on Amazon.com
    Format:Mass Market Paperback
    I liked this book. I thought it was a good intorduction to the series as well. It gives some outline to every point with just enough, but not too much information to make you look foreward to the next books to come. In comparison to other books, I dont think it is up there with the best, but it is good. It is an entertaining read. Its funny with a good plot and the characters are gems in themselves. I hope we get to see some of them in the books to come. I recommend this book to everyone.
