Overview

Orphaned at birth and raised in a cloistered convent, Lizzie Chambers knows nothing of her parentage; even her name comes from the pages of a book. When she is forced to leave the convent, she soon finds out life is nothing like her cherished Austen novels. Trapped in an unhappy marriage and questioning her own sanity, her only solace is her beloved flower shop, Enchanted Garden.

When her husband is killed and her store burns down, both under suspicious circumstances, Lizzie finds herself fleeing a demon she has no clue how to stop or even why it has targeted her in the first place.

But Gideon York knows. As a member of the Order of the Triple Goddess he is charged with protecting Lizzie and others like her from the dark forces seeking to destroy these rare and powerful women.

When their growing attraction tempts Gideon to break his sacred vow and Lizzie's own powers threaten her new found family in the Order, she can no longer deny her destiny. To protect the people she loves, Lizzie must find the courage to face the demon alone and risk the ultimate sacrifice...her life.

The Enchanted One, Lora Deeprose Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews Genre: Fantasy, Paranormal, Romance This reads like a YA book in many ways. I don’t mean that in a disparaging way, just that's its an easy read. Its really just based around four people , Lizzie, Madison Gideon and Vivienne. There are others but they don’t feature hugely. I found the characters to be quite frustrating at times, Lizzie was a bit of a doormat, but given her sheltered and unusual upbringing that was in a way understandable. It didn’t stop me from mentally yelling at her “stand up for yourself” especially with the awful husband and mother in law. Madison I really liked to begin and then she changed so much, it was as if she was a different person. I’m not really sure why that was, why the boyfriend line was there – it didn’t add much but maybe in a later book there’ll be more significance from him. She and Lizzie are happy working together in Enchanted Garden, Lizzie’s flower shop. Once Gideon makes himself known its all change, there’s spooky happenings, her shop burns down and Lizzie finds out a demon is after her. She realises that her life as she knew it was gone....Gideon, he seemed to be more interested in Madison than Lizzie til he finally made that brief move and then...well lets just say I was so, so disappointed in him, he really let Lizzie down and I expected more from him. Still, maybe in the next book? I did expect a lot more on the romance side than there was here. Vivienne was a nice lady but a bit of a steamroller at times, very full of enigmatic answers. I did feel the way the supernatural elements unfolded was very slick, too polished for me. I need a lot of working out, I need to try to see solutions for myself but with the type of magic here coming from inside the Guardians and Lizzie it seemed very problem meet solution – a neat easy fix, when in fact we’re talking about powerful demons and life-threatening danger. I needed it to be a bit more scary, and for things to take longer to be solved. It felt almost clichéd at times. Despite that it was a fun, easy read and I want to know what's in the future for Lizzie, what happens with Gideon, if Madison's changed behaviour stays or passes once her shock is over. There’s also the puzzle of Lizzie’s background to discover. all that power comes from somewhere. Stars: Three, a fun read, a good start and I want to know more of the story. ARC supplied by author.
