Overview

The third sizzling novel in New York Times bestselling author Karen Hawkins’s Duchess Diaries series, featuring three unruly sisters and their headstrong godmother with a penchant for matchmaking.

The Duchess is doing it again! Matchmaking, that is.

Bestselling author Karen Hawkins charms with a delightful retelling of Beauty and the Beast— Scottish style.

Scarred in the terrible accident that took his wife, gruff Lord Kirk has hidden himself from Society. When he meets his neighbor, Dahlia Balfour—a young beauty who shares his love for poetry and books—he realizes she is the one woman who could make him forget the past. But how can such a recluse attract the eye of an enchantress? Kirk appeals to his godmother, the Duchess of Roxburghe, to help him become the dashing, well-dressed hero of Dahlia’s dreams.

Arriving at a house party given by the Duchess, Dahlia is unprepared for the change in her neighbor. Suddenly, she is seeing him in a whole new light. When he captures her lips with an ardent kiss, she realizes he could be her romantic hero, but then a jealous rival twists an inadvertent comment she makes. Now Dahlia must persuade Kirk that she’s not just a pretty girl feeling pity, but a passionate woman who sees past painful scars into the soul of the man she’s come to love.

The final book in the three book series. I loved Kirk and his flawed character and the fact he wanted to change to a certain degree to get Dahlia for his wife. I liked that Dahlia stuck up for him and was a champion of sorts. The two girls who played the villain parts did a great job and then turned nice in the end. I was super glad that Kirk was able to dance with Dahlia in the end of the story. This was a true love story.

In my opinion How to Entice an Enchantress was the best of the series. Lord Kirk and Dahlia seemed made for each other even in the other books of Zero The Duchess Diaries series,  and this book certainly solidified that notion.

I enjoyed this series by Karen Hawkins. Lord Kirk was not as inspiring a hero as those in the earlier books. But still a good read

I absalutly love this author and her books. And once again she did not disapoint it is a fun romance that keeps you from wanting to put it down. Great for cuddling up on yhe sofa with a fuzzy blanket and being swept a away to watch all the fun giggly mistakes down the road of love.

The third book in the series that centers around the Balfour sisters. In this novel we find the youngest of the sisters, Dahlia has come to attend the houseparty of Duchess of Roxbourghe in order to find a husband. Little does Dahlia know that the Duchess is also working with Lord Kirk in order to match them together. Dahlia and Kirk have had a rocky relationship. While there was a time that Dahlia thought there was a future between them, it is definitely not anymore. Kirk knows he missed up with his awkward proposal and the handling of the loan that Dahlia's father had got from him. But he knows that Dahlia and him are the perfect match. Unfortunately, he cannot seem to win Dahlia hand without a little romance and polishing. Enter the Duchess and her companion Lady Charlotte, work to polish Lord Kirk into a respectable gentleman. A great and entertaining story with a Beauty and the Beast twist.

Another amazing book by Karen Hawkins! I love this twist on a classic fairy tale (and adore the nod to the Disney version on the cover!)! As always, this book is filled with great humor and wonderful moments. I can't wait to see what she comes up with next!

I was so bored this book was so childish. I had to skim through it to finish. Thank goodness I purchased it on sale.

Was expecting so much more from this series. Kirk and Dahlia were horrible characters; could not find compassion for either of them. So bad I could not finish

I am a huge Karen Hawkins fan. The first two books in this series were wonderful. After reading the first two, I just couldn't wait for this last book in the series to come out. Unfortunately, I didn't enjoy it. I can read a novel in one day, two max. It took me about a week to finish How to Entice an Enchantress. I just couldn't connect with the characters. They just fell flat for me.

For those readers who enjoy Karen Hawkins, this is another hit for her. The Duchess of Roxburge has her full in getting Dahlia and Kirk together. While the attraction is definitely, other things keep getting in the way. As always, I enjoy Karen Hawkins' books.

I didn't find this one quite as good as the ones that came before it. Having said that it's still worth reading. Karen Hawkins is always good for a romantic escape with plenty of chuckles along the way.

I loved the How to Entice an Enchantress! It was a great love story with a Beauty and the Beast twist. I love reading anything written by Karen Hawkins.  Once you read one of her books you will not want to stop reading anything that she has written.

This was a very sweet and engaging romance.  I enjoyed Lord Kirk and Dahlia's story.  It was a fun take on the usual Beauty and the Beast story with a scarred and damaged hero and the young hopeless romantic he falls in love with.  If you are looking for a romantic story that leaves you with warm fuzzies and surprisingly enough, very little angst, you will enjoy this story.
