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.

    "Definitely Not Capitivated"
    What disappointed you about Captivated & Entranced?

    I felt this lacked the excitement and wonderful, accurate research Nora Roberts so often puts in her novels. The


    Would you recommend Captivated & Entranced to your friends? Why or why not?

    No. I would refer them to one of her other novels or series that really grab the reader/listener and draw them in.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Yes. Therese Plummer needs to give a listen to a current, modern Irish accent also. Her male Irish characters were like squeaky, funny puppets.


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

    I didn't love the books but do love Nora Roberts. She, of course, comes through in spots.


    Any additional comments?

    I'll always take a chance on any of Nora's writing.

    Story
    "Nora Roberts at her most Entrancing"
    If you could sum up Captivated & Entranced in three words, what would they be?

    Visual, visceral and witty.Nora Roberts does have a fun hand with the supernatural. I think we could have found a better reader, but even with that problem, it's hard to mess up a Nora Roberts story and these two are so much fun. What's not to like about passion, romance, intrigue and just enough of a smattering of the paranormal to keep it interesting. Roberts characters are people first, witches second. And the dialogue is witty and fast paced. Now, much longer are we going to have to wait for Anastasia's story, Charmed? I've read all of Nora Roberts books - and this trilogy needs to be rounded out because a lot of information hinges on Anastasia's story and if readers loved the first two, they're going to adore the last one.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Captivated & Entranced?

    For Captivated, I'd say it was when Nash realizes Morgana hasn't been playing him -- she really is a witch. It's funny as hell. And with Entranced, it would have to be Mel putting all her trust in Sebastian and knowing he will find her when she finds herself in a nasty situation. Those are turning points in both storylines.


    What aspect of Therese Plummer’s performance would you have changed?

    Plummer's performance for the female characters isn't bad but her male characters, with the exception of Sebastian, sound like teenagers. And Sebastian's


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I chuckled a lot through these two because the characters were not only likeable, they were smart and funny and determined.

    "Delightful"

    This is a wonderful pair of stories that is well narrated. The characters are likable and the stories move along smartly. I found myself sitting in my car long after arriving at my destination because I didn't want to turn the story off. I join the many other reviewers in asking for the sequel to be turned into an audio book.

    "Redundant"
    What disappointed you about Captivated & Entranced?

    This was the only book I've ever quit reading in the first half of a Nora Roberts novel.
    I found it without interesting plot and just plain boring.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Nora Roberts again?

    Of course, most of her novels are very good.


    Have you listened to any of Therese Plummer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Ms. Plummer's performance was fine. The subject matter never deviated and repeatedly described same old thing...not her fault.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Boredom


    Any additional comments?

    No, just very disappointed. Waste of money.

    "Okay story, not so okay narration"

    I honestly couldn't get through this whole book. I expected to enjoy it since I normally like Nora Roberts and have enjoyed other books narrated by Therese Plummer, but not this one. I have the sneaking suspician that this was one of the first books Plummer narrated. While her reading is always a bit different, in this book it came across as awkward. She had a tendency to emphasise certain words in such a way that made the meaning of the sentences difficult to understand. Unfortunately, I cannot recommend this book :(

    The first half was sappy and uninteresting. The reader was really annoying. I had a hard time making it through. The second half was better and more like Nora.

    Story
    "Very erotic without being crude"

    I've been looking for a good read. I liked this book but it wasn't what I was looking for. Romantic from beginning to end it is, essentially, two books in one. So if you like fairy tale romance, you'll like this. I enjoyed it but got weary of the constant sexual tension in both stories.

    Wonderfully written with just the right amount of MAGIC and Romance! I bought this book and read it before I ever bought this download. The Narrator did a wonderful job conveying emotions and romance.
