Another "faerie" tale starring pixies Allegro and Largo...
The distrustful Duke (Grant) must marry Lauren Miller in order to collect his inheritance. What he doesn't know is that Lauren is the daughter of the man who inadvertantly caused the Duke's father's death. Lauren's sister has been kidnapped and Lauren must steal a jewel from the Duke in order to rescue her. Hence the marriage between them.
This is a tough book to get into as the Duke is a pompous ass and Lauren is telling lies left and right. It eventually gets better but a really slow start. The faerie elements are rather fun and amusing though
The land of Jubilant lies in the heavenly clouds over Great Britain. Pixies are the prime residents with many enjoying the pleasures of mischievous involvement with human relationships especially the aristocrats of the Regency who pompously reside in the land beneath their country.
However, pixie Allegro Soprano knows she must correct a horrible mistake she made involving mortals that could put her people at risk from dangerous trolls. She is accompanied by her friend Largo in her efforts to rectify her blunder, but upon looking at her human targets fears failures. Still she must try because the path currently walked is a sure disaster for her people. Working with Largo she must make a mid course correction and bring as one Grant and Lauren who are destined to be together. Failure to bring this couple together could doom the land of Jubilant.
ENCHANTED BY MAGIC is as wild a romantic fantasy readers will find as chaos reigns within the story line as expected when pixies interfere with people. The lead human couple and the mischievous pixie duet are fabulous protagonists while the support cast enhance the tale especially the trolls as despicable villains ready to eradicate both enemy species. Dialects add realism, but can prove disruptive as it is difficult to read at times. Still fans will enjoy Gloria Hatchar's wild ride.
