If you are looking for an all-encompassing romance that will captivate your heart then The Colonel and the Enchantress is the book for you. What I love most about a romance from Author Paullett Golden is that the stories are thorough! Mary and Duncan fell in love as teens and Duncan, feeling unworthy of Mary, went to war to prove himself worthy. What he found when on the battlefield was that he was a man who loved Mary and a man made for the military life. It was not until Duncan encountered an ...more

In the fourth book in the Enchchantress series, Paulett Golden shows her mastery of truly writing a great love story. Paullet's novels are not cookie-cutter beach reads. They are individual works with deep characters. Each story in this series demonstrates that she lets the characters carry the story where it needs to go. She does not simply follow the typical meet, fall in love, get married trope. Her characters are real, raw and honest in a way that supports and emotional connection.

I found it easy to pick up the family connections, in a series I had not read before. The H gained rank in the Army, now medically discharged and returns home badly wounded. The h was a teenager when he left and while she has matured, I thought her self absorbed and haughty. The H recovers enough to marry her, but foolishly re-injures himself. The plot was a good idea that didn't quite deliver for me. Mostly because the H's self image issues, and her selfishness, - I didn't like them. It was ...more

Charming and heartwarming, but pacing a little off

Many thanks to the author, who provided me with a free ARC in exchange for an honest review.


I’ve been eagerly awaiting Mary’s story (I think I say that for every book, lol), and overall, I enjoyed it. The characters were endearing, the writing style smooth and sophisticated, and the premise intriguing: A couple had to reconcile who they had become with who they used to be—and also with who they had wanted to become.

Initially I was slightly apprehensive about jumping into an established series on the 4th book. Also romances aren't really my thing, but I'm always open to trying something new.
So glad that I did.
This book draws the reader in from the very beginning. I was immediately pulled into the action that Duncan faced while away from Mary, and could feel the anxiety at the reunion scene. The scenes are well written, and the emotions are real.
I love how rounded each character is. There is not a single

*Full review on the blog on 14 FEB!

We had the tiniest of glances of Mary and her romance in Drake and Charlotte’s story (The Duke and the Enchantress). All I really remembered was a bright-eyed, welcoming girl that was curiously deficient of friends that Drake adored. Mary’s book isn’t all slipping away into darkened alcoves for illicit romantic moments. Golden tackles the heavy topic of PTSD as Duncan is a soldier, returned only after a life-threatening injury. Their reunion, of course, is

This is an enjoyable Regency romance with likeable characters and an interesting plot. Although it might not appeal to every reader, I actually enjoyed that the story spent a good bit of time after the marriage, exploring some of the "now what" realities of adjusting to married life.

Colonel and the Enchantress

Mary and Duncan were sweet hearts. Mary is a Lady daughter of a Duke and Duncan is just a common man. His father was a Colonel. They often kissed down by the lake and laughed rode horses together.

He feels as he has nothing to offer her so he takes a commission and goes off to war. He is away for five years he rides a war horse and in his last battle he is wounded. Doctors try to remove the bullet from his back. He is sent home to heal.

When Mary finds out he is home

real rating 4.5
The colonel and the enchantress is the 4th book in The Enchantress serie. And tells the story of Mary and Duncan. She’s the daughter of a Duke and He just a soldier. Could their love be enough to overcome this huge difference?
I loved this books so much! And was so excited to finally read Mary’s story. It didn’t let me down at all.
I really loved the characters because they are wise and not to silly, they’re rational and think clearly. They both listen and that makes

Celebrated for her complex characters, realistic conflicts, and sensual love scenes, Paullett Golden puts a spin on historical romance. Her novels, set primarily in Georgian and Regency England with some dabbling in Ireland, Scotland, and France, challenge the norm by involving characters who are loved for their flaws, imperfections, and idiosyncrasies. Her stories show love overcoming adversity. ...more
