Publisher's Summary

Only the phenomenal Nora Roberts could have created the remarkable Donovan clan. Fascinating and irresistible, the mysterious Donovan cousins share a secret that's been handed down through generations - a secret that sets them apart from ordinary beings.

Captivated
His interest in her was purely professional...or so he told himself. Nash Kirkland had sought out Morgana Donovan, self-proclaimed witch, to help him research his latest screenplay. The hardheaded skeptic didn't believe for a minute she was what she professed to be, but Nash somehow found himself falling under her bewitching spell. Nash had never trusted his feelings. How could he be sure the irresistible passion he felt was real and not just some conjurer's trick?

Entranced
Obviously Sebastian Donovan was a fraud, but fiercely protective Mary Ellen Sutherland was desperate to find a missing baby and had run out of leads. So, reluctantly, the skeptical private investigator agreed to enlist Sebastian's help. Soon she had to admit - grudgingly - that this man had some pretty remarkable gifts. Especially his extraordinary ability to penetrate her tough facade and awaken her heart.

    "Predictable but good"

    This was rather predictable but still a good book though not one of her best.

    "Bad choice in narrators"

    I had to skip through a lot of the first book. The narrator was really bad and made me wonder if I hated her or the book. I am hoping the 2nd half is better. I have heard it is.

    Story
    "1st story was not good. 2nd story was better."

    2 stars for CAPTIVATED.

    Not enough plot. Too much descriptions, ponderings, and feelings. It dragged.

    The main plot was Nash a movie writer/director thought Morgana was a charlatan witch. He wanted to write a movie about witches. So he interviewed her to learn more about them. She was a real witch and told him truths. He liked what she told him but he thought they were tricks - not the real thing. Meanwhile they are sexually drawn to each other.

    I listened to more than half the book and then skipped to the end. I couldn’t make myself listen to more. The sequel “Entranced” was better.

    AUDIOBOOK NARRATOR:
    Therese Plummer was very good with general story telling and women’s voices. But she was not good with Nash. She made him sound weird and like a 12-year-old-kid. The emotional tone she used did not fit that of a sexy man.

    DATA:
    Narrative mode: 3rd person. Swearing language: none that I recall. Sexual content: at least one sex scene. Setting: Around 1991 California and Ireland. Book copyright: 1992. Genre: contemporary fantasy romance.

    ------------------------------------------------

    3 stars for ENTRANCED.

    Pretty good. Characters and plot were formulaic - been done before, but it kept my interest.

    This is book 2 in the Donovan Legacy series. Each book can be read as a stand alone. The characters in book 1 have minor roles in book 2.

    Mel is a former cop, now a private detective. Her friend Rose’s baby was stolen. Rose heard about Sebastian - a psychic who helped the FBI and cops with cases. Rose arranged to meet with Sebastian and asked Mel to go with her. Mel doesn’t believe in psychics. Mel thinks Sebastian will try to take money from Rose. Mel and Sebastian end up working together on the case. Eventually Mel is convinced of Sebastian’s abilities.

    The plot involves finding bad guys who steal babies. It was pretty good. I liked the clues and getting close. The relationship development was pretty good. It’s romance, so the ending is happy.

    AUDIOBOOK NARRATOR:
    Therese Plummer was very good with general story telling and women’s voices. But she was not good with Nash. She made him sound dorky. The emotional tone she used did not fit that of a sexy man.

    DATA:
    Narrative mode: 3rd person. Swearing language: none that I recall. Sexual content: at least one sex scene. Setting: Around 1991 California and Ireland. Book copyright: 1992. Genre: contemporary fantasy romance.

    "Very DIssappointed"

    I struggled to comple the first story in this book and could not bring myself to listen to the second. The narrator was irritating and the story was very predictable. I was very dissappointed because I generally like Nora Roberts books.

    "Ruined by the narrator"

    This is the first Nora Roberts book I have read (and I have read them all), that I could not concentrate on. The narrator just ruined it.

    Story
    "Wasted time and money"

    This is my first book by Nora Roberts and if this is a good example of her work I might not try another one of hers. I actually got it because Therese Plummer is one of my favorite narrators. I love the way she makes very distinct voices for each character and does excellent male voices. She tried her best with this story but she couldn't save it. It's just too unbelievable. If you write about two characters kissing and they literally float in the air they better be some kind of bird or paranormal creature in order for me to believe the fantasy all the way. If they are two mere mortals and they're floating then it's ridiculous. I know that the heroine is a witch but the author took the magic thing too far so the story didn't feel real to me. This is a DNF and I'm sorry I can't get my money back.
