Rowan Murray needs to think about her life, what she wants out of it, and how to get it. Her parents have been making her decisions for her all this time, and it is just not what she wants. They are both brilliant academics, and want her to be a teacher as well, going for her doctorate, and marrying Alan. Even though she loves to learn.
So she has come to this lovely little cottage in the middle of Rowan Murray needs to think about her life, what she wants out of it, and how to get it. So she has come to this lovely little cottage in the middle of the woods on the Oregon Coast to think. To just enjoy herself, without pressure from anyone else. Who would have thought she would find a handsome stranger there, who makes her heart beat faster?
And that beautiful black wolf who keeps appearing whenever she is out for a walk, and who seems to be keeping her company? So this attraction to Rowan Murray is very dangerous.
Staying with her in wolf form is much safer, or else he would ravish her. And as wolf, he can share her bed with her, and take care of her when she falls asleep as usual: He can share her dreams if he wants to, make love with her that way. To look inside of her, and see for himself. He does encourage Rowan to make a profession of her drawings. She only sees it as a little hobby, but she is very good. Liam is designing a new computer game, and her drawings would be perfect to complement it.
Time is running out for Liam though, he has to tell Rowan who and what he is, and to show her her own heritage, teach her. Can she accept it all, and him?
And can he choose for her out of love instead of obligation, or reject her because of the same thing? Another little gem of a book by Nora Roberts. I liked Rowan a lot. It took courage to decide to go away for a few months, when she has always been pressured and persuaded by her parents to do the sensible thing, which is what they want for her.
She is not in love with him, and neither is he with her. I loved how she discovered herself, and to enjoy herself, just doing nothing. Lying on her stomach and watching the ocean, and the fishing boats, and the birds. And discovering the big black wolf, and to tame it with cookies. She wanted to be able to do everything herself, so she bought books on plumbing, on car maintenance, how to work a generator.
Everything so she wound not be depended on a stranger if something happened. How can you not know that something was not right, that something magical was happening?
Liam was a great brooding hero. Wanting to make all the decisions in his life for himself, and not guided by fate or destiny. But by not telling Rowan the truth, he denied her to make her own choices for herself. And in the end, that really bit him in the backside.
I loved how Rowan stood up to him, and just walked out.
But my favourite scene is the afternoon spend with his cousins and their families. I do recommend this series to all lovers of sweet romances with just that touch of magic in them. I want to find me a Donovan all for myself! What was Roberts thinking, tagging this awful drek onto the end of an otherwise OK series probably just to make me pick it up, right? Well, this is nothing like the other books well, what I managed to slog through, anyway: That felt uber ichy: The girl is super annoying to about a wet as a used tissue thrown into a lake.
Gave up less than a third in. This is going back to the charity shop from which it came! Liam is another magical Donovan cousin who can shape-shift into a black wolf. Actually, he is a prince that is on the verge of the biggest decision of his life.
He must decide if he will bend to fate and take his father's throne or go his own way as is his right to choose. Rowan is an ordinary teacher who is unhappy with her career, her boyfriend and her life.
She borrow's a family member's cabin in the woods for three months to be alone and decide her life. Her first day there she spots a black Liam is another magical Donovan cousin who can shape-shift into a black wolf. Her first day there she spots a black wolf and befriends him. Her second day there, she meets Liam who does not endear himself to her but does stir her blood. The first half of the book worried me a little bit because I could not tell where it was going.
Liam invaded her privacy and she was a bit of a door mat. As the book moved along the characters learned some lessons and improved. There is a scene in the book where we get to meet the three main cousins in the series and see where they are in their lives to wrap it up. And Lovely, guileless Rowan Murray felt drawn to brooding Liam Donovan with a power she'd never imagined possible. Mar 07, Danielle bookstheoceanandyou rated it really liked it. Of the four Donovan books in the series, this is my second favorite because I live for broody, cranky magical males.
Nora Roberts is one of my favorite storytellers, and rereading this was just what I needed at the moment! Nov 12, Sharlyn Branson rated it it was amazing.
The best fairy tale I've ever read. Enchanted is about Rowan Murray, a young woman who isn't happy in her current life. She rents a cottage away from her family because she needs some space. There she meets Liam Donovon, who is also needing some space from his family. Liam is from a family of witches, and he's struggling with his responsibilities regarding magic and his family in Ireland. Rowan and Liam were really great together.
I've read a lot of Nora Roberts' books, and almost always do I feel like her heroes and heroines match well together, and that is definitely the case here. I couldn't help but root for them. I really loved Rowan, and could understand her need to reflect on her life and make some changes, even if it doesn't make her family happy.
I also liked Liam, who is a very typical Nora Roberts hero. He's a bit gruff, and cocky, but he is also a nice person. That said, I can't say that Enchanted is really a standout among all of Roberts' novels. I enjoyed it reading it, but once it was over, almost all the details slipped away.
If you are a Nora Roberts fan, and if you have liked the other Donovon books, then I definitely think you should read Enchanted. But if haven't read NR because, I think there are better novels to start with. This review was originally posted on Quinn's Book Nook Never thought I'd see the day when I wouldn't finish a Nora Roberts book and give it a 1 star rating but here it is.
Why was this included as a fourth book in the Donovan series? Crash and burn for me. Just awful - until a brief section near the end of the book, there is no clue to a tie in to the rest of the Donovan Legacy books. Liam is an arrogant, condescending, awful man who treats everyone like they are beneath him.
Rowan is an extremely weak willed, no self esteem, doormat; and maybe just the way the speaker read the audiobook but Rowan sounded like a simpleton with every word from out of her mouth. Th Just awful - until a brief section near the end of the book, there is no clue to a tie in to the rest of the Donovan Legacy books.
There is just no real story for entertainment - we're just waiting for them to "fall in love" and Liam to reveal himself as a witch. One book too many in the series. If I was starting to lag with the concept of this series, this book brought me right back to it.
I absolutely loved the premise at the location in the Pacific Northwest. Rowan is trying to figure herself out and even if there may have been some supernatural prompting, she takes the big leap to figure it all out on her own. Rather than being content with a lackluster life, she makes a leap and lands herself in a new passion, a new approach and a new intriguing neighbor. Liam is also trying to sor If I was starting to lag with the concept of this series, this book brought me right back to it.
Liam is also trying to sort out his life. Contains sexual content. Who should read it? Romance fans who like the flair of subtle fantasy thrown in. See all my reviews and more at www. May 14, Bj added it Recommends it for: Just could not finish this book. I was totally put off of this story by the third chapter. If there were a list of the worst NR books ever, this would be at the top of my list. We were given no indication in the other 3 books that this cousin existed, yet, here he is in line to be the grand poo pah.
If his role in the family were so important why not mention him thru out the other 3 books? Who in their right mind leaves food out for a wolf living in the wild? You really WANT a wild animal lurking on your porch? Once Rowana lets the beast into her home after just a few days, and allows him to follow her to bed, I was sure I'd had about enough.
Again, who the hell does this?
The final straw was when Liam forced a sexual dream upon Rowana. They had barely even spoken yet he feels compelled to force himself on her thru her mind. That's it. I'm done. No idea why this was added on to the series.
Jul 28, Elisabeth rated it did not like it. This was the worst Nora Roberts book I've ever read. I seriously have no words. First it doesn't really connect stylistically or plotwise with the previous books in the series, and only feels tacked on in the end.
The love interests are someone related, ie: The witch Liam Donovan is a loner who is a shapeshifter and visits Rowan Murray in the form of a wolf. He watches her get undressed twice and the descriptions of their interactions are erotic. So it also borders on hinting at bestiality.
I stopped reading part way through and then skimmed. It was super crap. NR has done so much better.
Aug 14, Cindy rated it really liked it. The first part of this novel seemed rather so-so, but I loved the ending. There was a lot of angst in the first part concerning Rowan - on Rowan's part and on Liam's. It is frustrating and almost tiresome. NR does her usual bang-up job of making the magical ordinary and the ordinary magical. Once Rowan is introduced to the magical world of Liam, the novel changes and becomes empowering.
I like this fun and fast read. Mar 01, Amanda rated it it was amazing Shelves: This was the romance novel I ever read so my opinion may be a little skewed, but the story hasn't lost any of its magic no matter how many times I reread it. Rowan is very much a heroine I can identify with and Liam is a hero that captures the readers interest both things I find desirable in any book. May 20, Stephanie Evans rated it liked it.
The first two books of this series were a lot of fun but the second two including this one were a bit generic and a push to get through. Done again! All the Donovan books are enjoyable reads - if you are Irish and a bit fey as I am, you'll enjoy them. Es que ni de pasada, nunca se menciona al tal Liam ni a sus padres siendo los reyes del imperio Donovan ni nada. Y es que el libro no me ha gustado nada y sumado a lo otro pues No he llegado a meterme de lleno en la historia, ni tampoco he empatizado con los personajes, ni me han hecho sentir nada.
Liam no me ha gustado nada, me ha parecido arrogante, gilipollas y un cerdo. Me ha parecido creepy y de un pervertido, sinceramente. Rowan, por otra parte, tampoco me ha gustado y a penas la soportaba. She was snowed in with a three and six year old with no kindergarten respite in sight and a dwindling supply of chocolate.
