Lady Philomena makes a living in London
Society by holding sťances and giving closure to the living
left behind. Sir Nicodemus Wulfson is looking for someone
who sees ghosts, or at least, someone who can fake it well
enough. Nicoís brother is being tormented by spirits that
haunt his dreams, and Nico thinks Phil might be the answer
to getting rid of them.
Even though Nico thinks she is a fraud,
he canít help but be attracted to her strength and beauty.
Since he is a werewolf, he especially appreciates her
comfort around shapeshifters, which is hard to find in
Phil arrives at Grimspell castle ready
to help. She can tell there is something wrong, but canít
quite put her finger on what. There are lots of mysteries
to be solved, and if she can just ignore her growing
attraction to Nico, she might be able solve them.
Enchanting the Beast is
the third book in the Relics of Merlin series. And based on
this book, I would say this series has some of the best
world building I have seen in awhile. Linking noble titles
to various types of magic is simple, but effective, and
gives a lot of room for a variety of stories.
This was a really fun read. All the
best elements of a paranormal and a historical in one book.
The romance and the mystery are equally interesting, without
detracting from each other. Nico is a beast on the outside
and a romantic on the inside. Phil is funny and caring, and
a perfect foil for Nico. And the descriptions of the
various shapeshifters are clever and hysterical (look out
for the duck and the penguin). Definitely a series I would
keep an eye on!
