Edith Layton - Bride Enchanted

Lord Aubrey Ashford is handsome, charming and a real catch for an heiress. Eve Faraday knows he is out of reach for her, because she is just a normal slightly built woman. But she’s surprised when Lord Aubrey asks Eve to dance with him on a ball. Eve finds it difficult to believe he is interested in her and think he is just being polite. But she will soon discover that Lord Aubrey has plans that include her.

Lord Aubrey Ashford had only eyes for Eve Faraday on the ball, even though some beautiful women are trying to get his attention. Lord Aubrey asks permission of Eve’s father to court his daughter and of course he grants it. It doesn’t take long for them to fall in love and get married. The moment Aubrey takes Eve to his family home on Fair Isle and Eve meets his sister Arianna, she knows they are hiding something. But Aubrey fears she will leave him the moment he starts telling her the truth. Is their love strong enough to conquer all?

Bride Enchanted by Edith Layton is a nice magical regency novel. I discover it was a normal regency romance with a twist of magic within. I believe it was enjoyable to read, but was not blown away by it.

The main characters Aubrey and Eve are both lovely and perfect for each other. But just the way they met and soon after that were married, was a little disappointed for me. I like a good courting and I couldn’t find it in this novel. But the determination of Aubrey to convince Eve that he truly loves her and wants to spend the rest of his life with her was a good treat. I would definitely try another novel by Edith Layton.
