Series: The Enchantresses #3
Publication Date: 8/7/19
** 4.5 Stars **

I do believe this author has definitely hit her stride in the great addition to The Enchantresses series. It is delightfully engaging and filled with endearing characters, humor, heartbreak, and a lovely HEA. It is a well-told, realistic tale, but it is a bit slow-paced. If you are looking for excitement, you will not find it in this book. The story is steady and develops step-by-step just as it would in real life.

Rating: 3.5/5.0

“The Baron and the Enchantress” is a contemplative tale. It's thoughtfulness about issues of social class, birthrights, gender disparities, and city versus country concerns add provocative emotional layers.

“The Baron and the Enchantress” is an exquisite regency romance, the third book in the Enchantress series by Paullett Golden. I love a good historical romance and after reading this book one thing is for certain – I will be back-peddling to catch the first two books in the series I missed!

The story follows Lilith Chambers, a parish midwife, and Walter Hobbs, Baron Collingwood. Lilith, raised in an orphanage, is rediscovered by her long-lost brother

Many thanks to Booktasters and the author for a chance to read and review this book. All opinions are expressed voluntarily.

The Baron and The Enchantress is book #3 in The Enchantresses series by Paullett Golden but it can be read as a standalone as I never felt like missing much except for some backstory with the main character’s brother.

I was excited to read The Baron and The Enchantress because Lilith Chambers has been a mystery to me throughout this series and in this book, she was finally going to be properly introduced. I say ‘mystery’ because Lilith’s character was presented in book one, The Earl and the Enchantress, but very briefly and only as long-lost sister to Sebastian Lancaster. From the start, when she had learned of her brother’s existence, she was more than a little resistant to the idea of accepting all that she ...more

I enjoyed this book. A historical romance in which an orphan is found by her brother, an Earl. Lilith must choose between a life of privilege where she could be happy but never be accepted or a life of contentment but never happy. A wonderful romance, a bit of adventure and lots of thought and discussion about the differences between the haves and the have nots. I received this book for free from eBook Discovery but this review is voluntary and my own.

Walter Hobbs, Baron Collingwood, has felt lost since his father's untimely death three years ago. He's shirking his duties to the barony and left it in the steward's hand. The last thing he's thinking about is taking a bride, that is, until he meet Lilith Chambers. Lilith is the sister of his cousin-in-law Sebastian and his attraction to her is immediate. However, Lilith is floundering with her own identity. Within a year, she's found out why she was sent to an orphanage at age 8 and is trying t ...more

Wonderful characters. Interesting plot. Vivid descriptions. The perfect addition to the Enchantress series. Simply a GREAT read!

Another really good story, though I did feel it dragged on a bit overlong. The main character got to be a touch annoying with her refusals, but it worked out perfectly and positively in the end.

She lived happily in the small town of Allshire. The villagers mostly respected her for her work. There was one person or another who would rather have the horse run through the mud to get her dress dirty, but about these people Lilith knew how to handle.

Though I’m an avid reader of romantic fiction, admittedly, historical romances were my least favorite, mainly because the characters were sometimes too stuffy for my taste and/or the old world jargon was sometimes hard to decipher so for me, much of the plot would be lost on me as a result. In contrast, I found little of that in The Baron and the Enchantress. Ohh there is still some stuffiness with some of the supportive and additional characters but it’s hardly noticed because of the light hand ...more

Got a bit long, otherwise a beautiful story

My thanks to Paullett Golden, who asked me to read a free copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review.


This was typical Golden (Is it too early to start saying “classic” Golden?)—a well-told, heartfelt story with endearing characters, deep themes, historical detail, bittersweet irony, and humor.

The only real issue, in my eyes, was the length. I don’t mind a long book, but the narrative has to work that much harder to hold a reader’s atten

Golden’s marvelous third installment in The Enchantresses series builds passionate romance between two people, as they gradually discover themselves through each other.

Lilith Chambers, a parish midwife, learns about her true parentage after her brother locates her whereabouts and invites her to stay at his place. Struggling to fit into her new life as the daughter of 15th Earl of Roddam, Lilith is tempted to keep living the quiet life of the parish midwife in her humble country cottage. When th

Best So Far

I have read most of the other books in this series. I liked one but didn’t completely like another. However, I think this is the best one I’ve read yet. (Though I do have one to go!) What makes it the best? I absolutely adored the hero. The chapters written from his perspective were so well done. Walter is a through-and-through aristocrat, therefore a bit uptight, and the author is able to portray this brilliantly. At first, Walter has no self-awareness in this regard whatsoever, but

I really enjoyed this book and the interesting plot line. This review contains some spoiler alerts.

Having been raised in an orphanage with few memories of her early childhood, Lilith has mixed feelings about being reunited with her long lost sibling. As a mature (33 y/o) unmarried woman she has achieved a great level of independence as a midwife and healer and is able to live independently in a rented cottage. Unfortunately, the cottage is owned by the local vicar who never lets Lilith forget ab

I have fallen in love with this author and her stories! Her descriptions of the surroundings make you feel like you are there and her words flow so smoothly taking you into the heart and mind of the characters.

The Baron and the Enchantress rejoins the series as book 3 and really should be read with the others to fully appreciate the story. We have Lilith Chambers and Lord Collingwood, Walter. Lilith is still coming to terms of having her life thrown into turmoil with discovering who she really is. Not only was she brought to an orphanage at the age of 8, but she was a by blow of the last Earl. However her brother Sebastian doesn't look at her that way. She's his sister and that all that's to it.

The Baron and The Enchantress it´s the third book of the Enchantress series. It can be read as a stand-alone, though I suggest reading the two first or at least the first one. It tells the story of Lilith and Walter, how they fall in love and how they try to overcome the circumstances that might stand in the way of their love.

This is the third book of the Enchantress series and I have to say, each book just keeps getting better and better! Ms Golden has a true talent for creating characters that you can't help but fall in love with. Lilith was first introduced in Book 1 of the series. At the age of eight, she was cast off by her father and left in an orphanage. Her brother Sebastian didn't know this and thought she had died. She grew up to become a teacher and a skilled midwife.

Once a confident midwife, she questions her beliefs particularly on meeting Walter, a baron, who she believes is not so much beyond her station but as nobility, he stands against all she holds true.

The Baron and the Enchantress is a wonderful tale about love overcoming station or social class. Lilith is a good representation of the lower class and Walter is the perfect representation of wealth and luxury. Yet when it is love-at-first-sight can they overcome their social differences to build a life together? Paullett does an excellent job creating characters that are realistic and easy to like.

I'll be honest, I didn't like this story as much as the prior to in the series. This one is still good. It's just hard to see someone so proud and stubborn turn away from an opportunity at love and to see the man that is spurned still be humble enough to forgive. It's a hard story to read knowing how much the two main characters read each other wrong, especially Lillith, or don't say way they need to say due to propriety. Oh, so much sadness could have been saved. It's a wonderful story about hi ...more
