Historical Romance Meets Fairy Tale Magic In a Victorian England with a rigid hierarchy of magic, lion shape-shifter Sir Terence Blackwell is at the bottom rung of society. Only Lady Felicity Seymour, who has no magic, no inheritance, and no prospects, may be willing to judge the man strictly on his own merits.

When family pressures push Lady Felicity into a terrible fate, she has only Sir Terence to turn to. As the two outcasts are propelled by circumstances beyond their control, they are forced to explore the unseen depths beneath society's facade.
And what they discover about each other is more real and more beautiful than they ever could have imagined...

A unique combination of historical and fantasy romance, Enchanting the Lady will fascinate readers of Karen Monin, Sherrilyn Kenyon, Kresley Cole, and Diane Duval who will be charmed by this light-hearted, powerful mix of romance, history, magic, secrets, and spies.

Our customer reviews

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!show more
