Lovely, guileless Rowan Murray felt drawn to brooding Liam Donovan with a power she'd never imagined possible. And his breathtaking kisses convinced her he felt the same. But she soon realized her darkly enigmatic neighbor was as elusive as the mysterious wolf she'd seen lurking about her cabin.
Liam was tormented by indecision. He understood he had no right to love Rowan, knowing what lay ahead. But the allure of her beguiling innocence overpowered his will until he could resist no longer. And he knew, if he was ever to make Rowan his, he had no chance but to reveal his incredible secret.
I picked up the audiobook of Enchanted by Nora Roberts because I like this series, and I like the narrator (Alexander Cendese). Enchanted is about Rowan Murray, a young woman who isn’t happy in her current life. She rents a cottage away from her family because she needs some space. There she meets Liam Donovon, who is also needing some space from his family. Liam is from a family of witches, and he’s struggling with his responsibilities regarding magic and his family in Ireland.
Rowan and Liam were really great together. I’ve read a lot of Nora Roberts’ books, and almost always do I feel like her heroes and heroines match well together, and that is definitely the case here. I couldn’t help but root for them. I really loved Rowan, and could understand her need to reflect on her life and make some changes, even if it doesn’t make her family happy. I also liked Liam, who is a very typical Nora Roberts hero. He’s a bit gruff, and cocky, but he is also a nice person. That said, I can’t say that Enchanted is really a standout among all of Roberts’ novels. I enjoyed it reading it, but once it was over, almost all the details slipped away.
If you are a Nora Roberts fan, and if you have liked the other Donovon books, then I definitely think you should read Enchanted. But if haven’t read NR because, I think there are better novels to start with.
