This short novella is a must read for all you Eagle Elite fans out there!

This doesn't happen very often but this story left me in tears and reminded me that life isn't always fair.


This is the story of two brothers, Franck and Luca, and the woman they both love but only one of them gets to keep forever.


She wants one of them but life has another plan for him. The other one wants her but knows her heart is going to be hard to get.

In the end which one will get to keep her forever and save her life?

I really enjoyed this short. A true story of lies, deceit, love and betrayal.

So it’s onto Elite for me now.

4.5 "Star-Crossed Patriarchs" Stars for the story and narration!

This title is presently available for free on Audible's Romance Channel! Having fallen in love with books 1 and 2 last year (which were published by Hachette Audio), I had been hoping that the rest of this series would be recorded on audio. Thankfully Blackstone Audio has answered my call with this prequel series novella and books 3, 4 and 7. Hopefully the rest will be shortly forthcoming!

For lovers of the Elite Eagle Series, a fan

Ehm. I didn't understand the point of it? I probably should've read the other books in the series before reading this? Doesn't really matter though I guess, it's a one-star rating or me.

Not really sure how to rate said #0.5 but I think I should have read book 1 first. I think I'm going to go with 3 (which means I liked it) but I feel like I missed something.

Another little Novella to add to the Eagle Elite series. GR has this marked as book .05, the prequel to this series - but was obviously written after the author started the series - so really it's backstory. It's not really a book setting up the series in my opinion.

I am reading this about half way through the series, I think at the authors recommended reading spot, maybe at 4.5?? Which I don't think was the most beneficial. It would have been nice to have this backstory earlier on, before Luca

Wow! This was a short story but it really packed a punch. I'm sitting here with tears running down my face. I loved getting a peek into Luca, Joyce and Frank's past and reading about where it all began.

Then again, hate only breeds more hate, more anger, and in the end, I was gifted with a beautiful family, a beautiful life, would I take it all back?
Some days yes.
Some days no.

I had a hard time remembering who the case of characters was and I wish I could have read the books in the current order, but I started the series well before the novellas were added in.

For such a short novella, this one certainly packed a punch.

I was upset at how things played out, but as I looked back, I remembered how much I love Frank in future book and can see how this jaded Luca for future books.

4 stars

I think I would have enjoyed this story more if I had read it after I read Elite. But it's interesting background to what I'm currently reading. I can tell already that I'm going to love this series. Mafia, mean rich kids and spunky farm girl...oh my!
Some how I think that I'm gonna regret reading this series ... but how could I not far I'm too far gone not to read it.

4.5 Stars - Enchant is a quick novella that serves as a prequel to the Eagle Elite series. This story was all consuming, making reading the series an absolute must. Rachel Van Dyken has me so intrigued by her thrilling mafia world that I didn’t hesitate to dive into the story and connect with the characters. While short, Enchant is straight to the point, examining the beginning of the mafia war to follow. The names Alfero, Nicolasi, and Abandantos are thrown around for the first time, as we lear ...more

For those of you that want to know more of the love between Joyce and Luca, then grab this novella. You will see how Luca and Joyce's love effected her marriage to Frank and what Frank did knowing that his wife was in love with his brother. Sometimes LOVE makes us do crazy things... It always allows us to look the other way sometimes. This is a great novella to show us a different side of Frank that we never see. Could he have a heart after all???

How it began with Traces grandparents Joyce and frank. Joyce loved franks brother Luca but was told he was killed, to be safe she reluctantly agreed to marry Frank.

But secrets come out and frank was not as innocent as he seemed. Even if he thought he was doing it for the right reasons

I liked this one, but I had a hard time remembering who was who. I felt sorry for Janet and Luca, both were played. I was a bit surprised that Janet was able to forgive Frank and make a life with him. I'm not sure that I could have.

This is associated with the letter Nixon read about Joyce and Luca and Frank. She loves Luca and he loves her but Frank vowed to make Luca the new leader so that he would not suffer. They all end up suffering heartbreak in the end, but Luca becomes one of the most ruthless leaders known. Well now I know what happened because I was so lost in the first book about Trace. Joyce resents Frank but based on the situation she understands what has to be done. Frank seems really cold compared to when he ...more

I listened to the audible version of this story and I enjoyed it a lot. This prequel was full of suspense and betrayal. I enjoyed Joyce and Luca and I hated how Frank went about things, but I can understand how much power promises have when it comes to a mafia family. It was a huge betrayal but it was done out of love in a twisted way. This prequel definitely leaves me wanting more of this series.

I love the stories that give a little background on side characters and this one is no exception. A quick tease on Trace's grandparents, this story is just as tragic as the other couples in this series. You don't need to read it but it gives context to Frank and Joyce, Trace's grandparents. Give it a go!

Oh these mafia men!!!!

Read this boom several tomes and realized I never left a review. Love everything about these mafia men and their families. To read the history of Joyce, Frank and Luca - my heart breaks all over again for them. Enjoy these chapters but don’t stop there - there is so much more to learn!!!!

"Enchant" is the precursor to the "Eagle Elite" series. Frank was given a task and swore on his father's deathbed to fulfill it. He set everyone up like dominoes and played poor Luca and Joyce like a set of base fiddles! He in no way resembled grandfatherly Frank from the first novel!

I just found the Eagle Elite series. I 1-clicked them all. Even though this is a short read, well worth it. I am about to start book 1. This short book has me anxious to read book 1. And the fact that Rachel Van Dyken is one of my favorite authors. I can not wait to see what this series brings! It is a mafia romance, and this short one was good I know the rest is going to be even better.

Holy Moly!

I had no idea! How could he do that? It takes a real woman to be able to forgive a man for doing what he did. In the end I suppose he made up for what he did. Damon you Rachel for bursting my bubble about him. Lol

This story was short but eye-opening at the same time. This story about how the whole feud started. I found that this story puts everything else in perspective. The story focus on the older generation. this story is the missing pages from the diary. I would recommend reading this book.
