In 1229 Montgomery de Piaget who believed in fairy tales could use a happy ending with his current assignment. The knight needs to repair a fixer upper Artane castle before the walls fall around his ears. Seattle, Washington theater costume designer Pippa Alexander is in England creating costumes for a gala when she and her sister Cinderella fall through a time portal that tales them to 1229 Artane Castle. Montgomery believes the siblings are fairies and asks them to use their powers to help fix the dilapidated pile of rocks he calls home. A drugged Cinderella insists she is the Fairy Queen while Pippa tries to get Montgomery to understand they are humans from almost eight centuries in the future. Montgomery still thinks she is the miraculous answer to his prayers as his claim on the castle is at best tentative, but his claim on her heart permanent regardless if he needs all the time in the world to prove it to his Pippa. The latest time traveling de Piaget romance (see Till There was You and Dreams of Stardust) is a terrific entry as Artane is definitely a fixer upper. Fast-paced and filled with humor, fans will enjoy the awesome adventures of the twenty-first century Washingtonian fairy sisters in the crazy world of de Piaget family medieval England.

The heroin in this story is way to whimpy for me. All she wants to do is cry,cry, cry... I got tired of the "tears in her eyes". Not a strong enough heroin for me..

Anyone familiar with Lynn Kurland's tales of time travel and ghostly occurrences will be glad to know that Montgomery de Piaget's story is a tale well-told. It has all the elements: a heroine plopped back in time, a hero not sure the stories of fairies he knew as a child aren't true, and enemies enough to prove the valour of any medevial knight. However, it is not the story to take as an introduction to this world. It takes too much for granted that the reader knows what has gone on before.

I have read all of Kurland time travel stories. I kinda got away from it but when I saw this on my Nook shopping list I had to try it. I really enjoyed the way she makes her Hero's so romantic. I promise if you decide to read this you won't be sorry.

This book is by far one of my personal favorites by Lynn Kurland. It's full of magic,laughter, heroism, knightly virtues, unconditional love, and a fair amount of stubborness from said knight. Each character is created to perfection. You truly feel like you personally are in the story, expereincing it for yourself. This is an experience that every romance reader must have.

Montgomery de Piaget attracts responsibilities like blossoms lure bees. Where other knights have bonny brides, laughing children, and noble quests, he has the task of rebuilding the most dilapidated castle in all of England. A bit of magic might aid him—if only he still believed in that sort of thing. When Pippa Alexander is invited to England to provide costumes for an upscale party, she jumps at the chance to showcase her own line of fairy-tale inspired designs. Not even her older sister’s decision to act as Fairy Queen crushes Pippa’s hope that this time, she’ll wind up wearing the glass slippers. Not that she believes in fairy tales, or magic that whispers along the hallways of an honest-to-goodness medieval castle… But the castle is full of more than cobwebs, and danger lurks in unexpected places. And only time will tell if Montgomery and Pippa can overcome both to find their own happily every after . . . Persephone Josephine Alexander comes from a very present-day "granola" family. Nicknamed Pippa and determined to dominate the world through her fairy-tale fashion; she loses not only her apartment, but also her collection of rare fabrics and expensive sewing machines due to a fire at the beginning of our tale. Her bad karma changes when she gets the opportunity to display her whimsical costumes and show off her portfolio at her sister's newly opened castle in England. One thing leads to another and suddenly Pippa, along with her psychotic older sister Cindi, find themselves within Sedgwick Castle in the year 1241. Besides being her sister's servant, dismissing fairy beliefs and missing hot showers after falling into the castle's cess pool (twice!), Pippa's discovered she has growing feelings for the Lord of the castle, Montgomery de Piaget. He seems to know more about her "time" situation then he lets on, but he's also the only one who helps Pippa adapt to her new home. When their worlds suddenly flip, both characters question which is best: following their hearts or following their dreams? This was a cute read. Sadly, I'm not sure if it was the story itself or outside entities disrupting my reading process, but I found One Enchanted Evening lagged a bit. It went on a lot more into certain areas that I had no interest in going and that fact had me reading the book a lot longer than normal since I just could not seem to keep up with it for long periods of time. The quirkiness of the sisters and parents was odd to me when it was to be comical and I felt Pippa adjusted too quickly to her time-travel problem than would seem normal, but overall, it's a fun (and clean) historical read to keep by the bed at night. Likes: I enjoyed flashing back and forth through time within the same places and seeing the changes over the years, be it structure wise within the castles or noticing who within the de Piaget family we'd run into next. Dislikes: I kept hoping for some hot-steamy scenes to pop up and get me really engrossed into the story, but no . . . only some kissing and nothing more. I think I need a little bit more "romantic involvement" between the characters to keep my stories spicy and interesting.

I only have one complaint and it's a weird one. I thought it went on too long. I know! The only reason that I feel this way is that it had several points where it felt like the story could end but then it kept going. I loved the story, I just wish it was a little tighter.

Lynn Kurland has done it again! I loved this book so much! I was waiting impatiently for Mile's story and I was not disappointed at all. If you like this series then you will enjoy this book.

A new twist on her time travel series. A lot of the characters from earlier books are there to help out the hero and heroine to figure out the twist and turn of fate. I love her writing style and her books are great for a rainy afternoon in your favorite chair with a box of your favorite chocolate and a warm drink. I always look forward to her next book being released and have her whole series.

One Enchanted Evening was an enchanting romp with Montgomery & Pippa. I was soo happy that he finally got his OWN adventure and was let in on the family's secret of "Paranormal Oddities" and a "faery" of his own. It was great how she included some of the characters from some of the other novels and see what is happening in their lives now. I can't wait to see who she has dreamed up for Tess, or Peaches even. An what has become of a few characters who have become missing. This book is perfect story for the time travel/romance lovers like me. It has touches of humor, with witty oneliners, a compelling story you wont want to put down. Thank you Lynn for another great one!!!!

Lynn Kurland is by far one of THE best Authors. I've read just about every volume in the Macleod/ De Piaget families. I've gotten close to all of the characters. It is because of Lynn Kurland that I became such a huge fan of time travel romances. I watched and read about her characters getting Married and starting families, and all adventures in between. I love the fact that she can tell an AMAZING story without blood and gore and without being outright sexually explicit. She knows how to make a reader express ALL of the emotions while keeping it clean...she's very very skilled at making you want to be there a a part of the story. I didn't read this one until I read about his Montgomery's twin brother John, and even after that, I read about Tess's twin sister Peaches and Steven De Piaget. You don't HAVE to read them in any special order, as long as you read them, period..though reading in order and meeting each chracter is a great deal of fun too...I love the three Ghosts, Ambrose Macleod, Hugh Mackinnon, and Fulbert Depiagett...if ever, I was to run into ghosts, I would hope it was much like them. I do so hope that Peaches Alexander and Steven Depiaget are NOT the last characters we read about. She ended that book the same way she always does...leaves you wanting more
