Double Enchantment by Kathryne Kennedy
I am on the Round the World Cruise and have limited internet. I am using this time to catch up on my TBR pile on my ereaders. My posts are short with no links or graphics. Check my travel blog to see where I have been and where I am going.
This is the second book in a reprinted series by Kathryne Kennedy. It is a historical romance filled with the paranormal. I found the whole premise a lot of fun. It is set during Victoria’s reign and has both fictional and real characters for the time period. Magic is real and people have different magical talents. Lady Jasmina Karlyle uses here to protect her parents and keep their housewhole running smoothly. She is not expected to wed. Everything changes where she tries to return a broach her mother took. It is a jewel of great power and send Jasimina on an unexpected and exciting adventure.
I loved the premise and world building in the story. One unusual aspect of the world is that Shapeshifters are shunned and considered not quite right for proper society.
Jasmina is a great character. I loved her Aunt Ettie and the two shape shifters who came into Jasmina and Ettie’s lives. Sterling is wonderful and perfect for Jasmina and for me his animal shape was something of a surprise.
Double Enchantment is filled with action, adventure, danger and of course romance. Pick it up for a great read.
