Tabitha Lennox, girl genius, has no time for love, and certainly doesn't believe in fairytales, happy endings or magic. Even though she is a witch. Born to a handsome and genius billionaire of a father, and a beautiful witch for a mother, Tabitha wanted nothing more than to be an ordinary girl, with no powers to speak of. But it was those very powers that made her extraordinary, and her life one disaster after another, until she learned never to voice her longings or her wishes ever again. Prefe ...more

Redonk Nutshell: Heiress and witch in denial is accidentally transported back in time and into the path of a knight bent on seeking vengeance

Tabitha Lennox has inherited her mother's penchant for magic, and she ain't happy about it. She immerses herself in science and technology and sharpens her already brilliant mind, a move to counteract the whimsical and fantastical nature of her mother's history. When her parents disappear during a plane ride over the Bermuda Triangle, Tabitha follows her mo

Heiress Tabitha Lennox considered her paranormal talents more a curse than a gift. So she dedicated her life to the cold, rational world of science. Until the day she examined the mysterious amulet her mother had left her and found herself catapulted seven centuries into the past--directly into the path of a rearing black charger ridden by a chain-mailed warrior. Sir Colin of Ravenshaw had returned from the Crusades to find his castle in ruins, his enemy poised to overrun the land where generati ...more

Touch of Enchantment is the sequel to Breath of Magic and is the story of Tabitha Lennox, daughter of Arian and Tristan. Whereas in Breath of Magic the past came to the future, in Touch of Enchantment the present goes to the past. I must start off by saying that I enjoyed this story more than the first, finding it an enjoyable read overall. I liked the characters, both old and new, and how the plot, although slightly predictable, still offered some twists and turns. As with her other series, alt ...more

This is my first Teresa Medeiros book, and I found it completely charming, surprising and lots of fun. She's a billionaire's daughter, a MENSA card-carrying prodigy, MIT student at 15, oh, and her mother's a witch. She looks and thinks like Dad, but takes after her Mom, witch-wise. Sadly, her powers, like her social skills in high-stress situations, leave much to be desired. She lacks control and finds herself in difficulties as a result.

In the story's opening, her parents have disappeared myst

Normally I wouldn't have very high expectations for any book I picked up for $1 at a rummage sale, but this had so many elements that are my catnip, namely time travel and a nerdy heroine. Unfortunately those were the major problems with this book, and to be more specific: THIS heroine time traveling.

You would think a woman who has rejected her own magical powers after some unfortunate incidents as a child and embraced science would be better equipped at being thrown back to medieval Scotland. Y

Great Story. Love the magic and time travel elements. Had a few laughs and I was terribly sad when Tabitha faded back to present time leaving Colin back in Scotland. I thought it was a going to be bad sad ending where Tabitha raised her baby all by herself while she is separated with the love of her life. However HEA. (view spoiler) ...more

(4.5 stars) I don't normally read paranormal historical romances, but Medeiros is a good author and since I've liked some of her historicals, I've given some of her paranormals a try. Touch of Enchantment was highly enjoyable; it was the first time-travel HR that I've read, but it was very, very funny and a definite reread for me. (Some parts had me laughing out loud so hard that my family asked me what I could possibly be reading?!). ...more

This was SO cute!

Lots of fun as Tabitha learned to stand on her own feet...and to let someone inside her heart.

I'd read it again.

This is my second witchy romance read for October, and it's actually better than the first installment in the series! Touch of Enchantment follows the story of Tabitha "Tabby" Lennox, the daughter of Arian and Tristan Lennox whose story is the main focus in the first book. She is an only child, and although she's a genius like her father, an heir to a multi-billion company, and she inherited her mother's "talent," she's not really satisfied with her life and has grown to be somewhat awk

Tabitha Lennox has grown up with her mother's magic embarrassing her at all the wrong moments and vowed never to have anything to do with it. However, when her parent's plane disappears over the Bermuda Triangle and is still missing days later, Tabitha realizes it may not be another spell, especially when her mother's assistant gives her a video disc only to be viewed if she is no longer around. The disc explains the source of her mother's magic and it's connection to a hidden amulet. Finding th ...more

3.5 This was a fun book! The premise was unique and the plot was good enough to keep me entertained. That's a credit to Teresa Medeiros because the heroine annoyed me a little bit and I thought our hero was a bit bland.

Another thing that bothered me slightly was the language. I'm not necessarily complaining because reading a book that would have been written how people spoke in the 1200's would have been tedious. But, it seemed like these people were living more in the 1600's with the way they

It was a light read, entertaining and magical, a good way to pass the time while you're stuck reading another slow-paced book. I've always been fond of time travel romances and this one didn't disappoint. I liked that I wasn't able to predict what would happen next. It's a given they would end up together, but I still can't tell whose world they'll live in.

I also liked the humor injected in the story, especially about the disparity in hygiene, the food, and although I read this before in some ro

Fabulous ! 5 stars

Read "Breath of Magic" first so you have the back story. You can read "Touch of Enchantment" as a stand-alone if you want, but this book rounds off the duo and I liked it slightly better than the first, mostly because it tied everything up.

Plus, it had a gorgeous Knight...

Loved the whole Time Travel concept and I thought it was well done.

Wonderful romance, very steamy and fun to read.

It's been a long time since I read a straight up romance novel and while this had a bit of time travel and magic to it, it was still alot of fun to read. However, it is the second in the series, so if that's an issue for you, search out the the other book first. (Then lend it to me when you are done. ;-) ...more

I loved it! This is too cute! I thought I was watching Disney Channel while reading this.. (and of course, not including the love scenes).

The hero was very adorable! The heroine somewhat bothers me though. She doesn't act like someone her age. She's like a 15-year old brat.. but I guess that's what her character is supposed to be. I adore how her dialogues are always perfect in every scene!

Tabitha Lennox wasn't happy being a rich witch. Her mother, Arian, thought the name Tabitha was a good solid Puritan name and her father, Tristan just laughed. Her mother found out why after watching an episode of Bewitched. Tabitha was the sole heir of her father's multibillion-dollar empire and her mother's unpredictable paranormal talents. Her parents disappeared while on a flight over the Bermuda Triangle and because of her mother's talents, she thought they would return at some point.

I liked it. Tabitha got on my damn nerves 90% of the time in the book. The other 10% she was either not in it or it was Colin's pov.


You know that feeling where you've worked tirelessly during the day and you're looking forward to stuffing yourself with dessert after because you're starting your diet tomorrow and
Refreshing read. I loved the first book breath of magic which I had gotten by accident, and was a last resort read that I ended up loving, and going out and finding all the books this author has wrote. Touch of enchantment was just as enchanting :) as first book. My only problem is I didnt want it to end.

Paranormal Romance
The heroine has always been distant and reclusive from her parents and those around her. Her powers, which she hates and refuses to acknowledge on most days, is the reason she shy's away from human contact, fearing her magic will cause some trauma or another. With her parents missing, however, and feeling really truly alone for the first time, the heroine seeks her mothers magical amulet as a piece of the woman who raised her. Only the amulet sends her traveling back in time and she comes face t ...more
