Publisher's Summary

Lovely, guileless Rowan Murray was drawn to darkly enigmatic Liam Donovan with a force she'd never imagined could exist. But before Liam could give Rowan his love, he first had to trust her with the incredible truth about himself…and his family.

Where's the Irish

What disappointed you about Enchanted?

Why didn't you finish the series with the same narrator? Therese Plummer did an excellent job on the first 2 books. If I had read this one first I'd never have read the other books in the series!

Would you be willing to try another book from Nora Roberts? Why or why not?

I enjoy Nora Roberts books, I don't always like the narrators.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Alexander Cendese?

Therese Plummer

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

I liked the story ... it was the narrator that ruined it.

Awful narration

The narrator is horrible. He reads the female lead in a way that brought to mind teenage boys making fun of how they think girls talk. I couldn't take more than 15 minutes before deleting it from my library. Just awful!

Just ok

Not really related to the other Donovan books, and was a little fanciful even for my taste. The narrator takes some getting used to as well, overall I would pass and opt for the earlier Donovan books or a different series altogether.

Disappointing end to a magical series!

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

No idea.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Linda Fairstein, Terminal City

Which scene was your favorite?

The first one. I was thrilled to be listening to another Donovan Legacy book. The first 3 books in the series were fanciful, fabulous, and pulled you (happily) into another world.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Enchanted?

All of them!

Any additional comments?

I am a huge Nora Robert's fan. But alas, this is my least favorite NR book. I waited to be entertained, but completed the book before that happened. This book seemed to have been hastily thrown together because fans wanted to read more about the Donavans, not because there was a story to tell. Sigh...

Disappointing

Would you try another book from Nora Roberts and/or Alexander Cendese?

I'm a fan of Nora Roberts latest works since Witness and I love her TV movies but this book was way off. As for the narrator, I will never get a book narrated by him again. Just awful.

What do you think your next listen will be?

A Robert B. Parker Spenser for Hire novel.

What didn’t you like about Alexander Cendese’s performance?

He was trying to sound like a fragile woman and sounded more like a flighty 15-year old girl. A grown woman does not sound like that not even an insecure one. Even his male character voice was just harsh and univiting. This was more a romance novel than mystery mixed with romance and the male lead has to have at the very least a voice and tone that draws you in and his didn't.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Only at the end when the main character realized she wasn't some high school student and actually exhibited the strength and inner character that I've come to know in Nora Roberts books.

Any additional comments?

This book seemed unnecessary to the trilogy. The way he used his powers is completely against the families honor of their gifts. The idea that him entering her dreams and raping her was somehow romantic was just disturbing to say the least, sick to say the most. This is one novel that should've stayed on Nora's laptop.

Horrible narration and really corny story

I love Nora Roberts and loved the other books from this series but man, this one was really corny. Not like the others at all. And the narrator was horrible! Couldn't get through it.

Disappointed

Honestly, I don’t think this is her best work. It feels sophomoric, and under-developed. However, I don’t think I would know if it was any good, because the narration is SO BAD. The “female voice” is breathy and adolescent sounding, like an overly-dramatic high school heroine. She comes off as week, needy, immature and just generally irritating. Couldn’t finish this one.

Great story and beautifully read.

Wonderful story and beautifully read. Would love to read more about the whole family. I will be searching for additional Nora Robert books about this family.
