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.

    "If you can't say anything good..."

    I was appalled with this book. Ordinarily, in the very least, I enjoy Ms. Roberts' characters and the way they approach what are, definitely, mundane romance situations. There was none of that charm in this book. Her characters are lifeless. This is an excellent idea of how not to write a romance novel.

    I wish I hadn't wasted the money because I didn't listen to the whole thing. That's an unusual situation for me because I'm relatively accepting.

    "Enchanted & Captivated"

    My oh my. What ever emotions Nora Roberts tried to portray through her well written story was painfully lost with the narrator of choice.

    Story
    "It isn't literature/will appeal to Roberts fans."

    I don't read Roberts much anymore-she knows her audience and basically writes the same book over and over. I sometimes count the number of times she uses "He fisted his hand in her long (blazing red/midnight ebony/flowing chocolate) hair." In Captivated, it was 4 times.

    This is an old Donnovan series book, dug out, apparently, for this Audible special to attract Roberts many fans. It contains 2 of 4 short novels in the series. The last 2 are not available on audible though her loving audience seems to be begging for it.

    The reader is nice to listen to, does a variety of voices and accents well and her voice was pleasant. I see she reads quite a few Roberts books. I liked her, but between her soothing voice and the sorry old plot I was put to sleep - twice.

    If you are looking for an inexpensive and low key book for an airplane listen or general relaxing, I'd say the price (right now) is worth it. I bought it because I'd never listened to a Roberts book on audio...don't think I'll do it again.

    "Meh, 1 typical romance novel, 1 ok mystery/romanc"

    When I heard Halequin as the publisher I knew I was in for dissapointment. I enjoy NR mysteries. The first book here was pure romance novel, not what I was hoping to read. The second was a bit better and actually had a plot.

    "Read well - like a play & read combined"

    I just started but could complete a different Nora Roberts book b/c the "reader" was just that - a reader. This was read well, you felt the anger, tears and other emotions through the way this was read. Pretty good

    "captivated& entranced"

    The narrator was horrible. Couldn't really distinguish between male and female voice.
    I do however love the story. In fact I've read it many times. I love magic, and fairies, and the story had me laughing.
    If you want to read it, might I suggest buying the book instead?

    Story
    "Modern Magic"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I remember reading these books in high school and loving the idea of them. This was around the Twilight phase and I greatly enjoyed the less dramatic twist of the supernatural in the modern era. I would certainly reccomend this book to a couple friends but I feel as if perhaps most of my circle including myself has grown out of this ideal.


    What was most disappointing about Nora Roberts’s story?

    I've listened to quite a few of her stories and they all seem to follow the same general guidelines. Boy meets Girl, Instant attraction, They start to fall in love, something tears them apart in the last few pages of the book and finally on the last page they realize love is stronger than anything and they can certainly make a life together. I think I just grew tired of that trend for these two stories.


    What about Therese Plummer’s performance did you like?

    She was really decent with keeping her voices to the characters and I enjoyed her speaking to me for over 12 hours. Her voice was neither grating nor annoying.


    Did Captivated & Entranced inspire you to do anything?

    It suddenly made me want to listen to a romance about royalty for some reason, so about halfway through the book I went and scrounded around for my next listen already. Other then that I would say the book had no real inpact on me.
