#Review: THE HEIR AND THE ENCHANTRESS by Paullett Golden


  4 of 5 stars

Hazel Trethow dreams of marrying for love, but when she's caught in a compromising position at a hunting party, both her father and the host's father arrange for a speedy marriage to baron's son Harold Hobbs to avoid scandal. Harold has only recently returned from India and had planned on playing a call on Ms. Trethow, his betrothed since childhood, but being forced to marry without getting to know Ms. Trethow isn't want he envisions for his marriage. Despite that, Harold is determined to make the most of the situation and plans to court his wife. Can Harold and Hazel learn to do more than just tolerate each other?

I've read all the books in this series and I loved Harold and Hazel. Harold was so honorable and didn't hesitate to marry Hazel, but it's his attempts to woo his wife for a deeper connection and possibly love that appealed to me. This is a slow burn romance with the intended results. Harold also had to grow up fast to stop his greedy father from bankrupting the barony and I liked how he went about that. There was another good twist in the book with the secondary characters that added to the storyline. Ms. Golden is a talented writer who teases out details about the characters that keep you turning the pages until the end. I can't wait to read the next book in the series.

I voluntarily read the advanced reader copy and all opinions are my own.
